Hey everyone! Here is a quick video of a mini that I created using the Studio Calico Abroad 6×6 paper pad. This mini album only has 3 pages, but as you will see you get a lot of real estate in this little thing. I created my pages after watching a fabulous tutorial from klipngirl.

Ice Cream Cone Card

by Ginger on June 21, 2012

Hey everyone! Just want to share the card I created for the weekly challenge over at My Craft Spot. The challenge was Cool Treats. This is what I came up with.

Ice Cream Cone Card 1

My card measures 4-1/4 x 7 inches. I used the Once Upon A Princess Cricut cartridge to cut out my ice cream cone. I cut the ice cream out at 2-1/2 inches. By the time I got both scoops of ice cream on the cone it was pretty tall!

I ran the cone through my cuttlebug using the candy cane stripe folder and the scoops of ice cream were embossed with the divine swirls cuttlebug folder. I added some twine to the top of the card and added a button to the center of the bow.

Ice Cream Cone Card 3

My background paper is from Bella Blvd and my purple cardstock is American Crafts. I added some faux stitching with my white gel pen to the purple cardstock. I used the tiny tag stamp set for my sentiment. I popped the sentiment up with some dimensionals.

Ice Cream Cone Card 4

To finish off the card on the inside I added a strip of the purple design paper.

Ice Cream Cone Card 2

Cricut Cardz Challenge Card

by Ginger on June 20, 2012

Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by today! Just want to share a card that I created for the Cricut Cardz Challenge #110 over at CardzTV. The challenge was to create a Fathers Day card.

Cricut Cardz Challenge Card 1

My card measures 5×6-1/2 inches. The base of my card is ivory. I added sold green mat, then a light blue mat. I ran the light blue mat through my cuttlebug using the dots and circles folder. ( I think that’s what it’s called.)

I added another small green mat to the bottom of the blue mat and used my scissors to fringe the top edge to make it look like grass and give it some texture. Then I added a tan piece of cardstock on top of the small green mat. I ran the tan piece through the cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder.

Cricut Cardz Challenge Card 3

For my image I used the Cricut Wrap It Up Cartridge. I cut the golf club bag out at 5-1/2 inches. Since the first layer for the golf bag had a swirl cutout on it I decided to just cut another base layer in the striped paper and trim off the golf clubs. I used a silver pen to color the heads of the golf clubs and added two small glitter brads to the pockets on the golf bag. I also added some faux stitching around the pockets.

Cricut Cardz Challenge Card 2

For my sentiment I punched out a white circle then stamped my “Dad, you’re the best!”. After I stamped the circle I ran it through the cuttlebug so it would look like a golf ball. Sorry but I’m not sure what the folder is called, I think it’s spots and dots. I added some twine to the top of the card and tied a bow, then glued a button to the center. I added two smaller buttons to the bottom left hand corner.

Thanks for looking! Have a great week!
