Birthday Card and Another Goofy Video

Here's another quick post of a birthday card I did for my bestie, Gail.  

I used the Just A Note cartridge for the rooster and corn, and various scraps of paper I had on hand for the base and backgrounds.  (That's one thing I LOVE about doing cards....I get to use up a lot of my scraps that I can't seem to part with!)

Since my Gypsy is still in repair, I couldn't get letters small enough to use on the card for the "Happy B-Day", so I had to hand cut (gasp!) the letters for that.  I kind of like the wonky way they turned out though.  But I sure will be glad when my Gypsy returns to me!

And, of course, I had to use the little wiggle.  I just can't seem to get enough of these things.
 
Hope  you enjoyed my goofy little video.  As you can tell, I'm no professional (anything!) and I have no problem sharing my silly little giggle.  

Til next time, keepin' my fingers inky and my Cricut chirpin'!

AN AMAZING FIND!

I have seen some really neat ideas for storing the Nestabilities dies.  I decided I needed to make one for myself as my collections seems to be growing.  I rounded up some heavy chipboard and cut it to 5.5" x 8.5" and used spray adhesive to cover the board front and back with coordinating paper.

Then I found this AMAZING magnetic tape at my local Meijer in the adhesives row (by tools).  It is very thin and comes on a scotch tape-like roll and you just pull and cut like you would ordinary tape.

I have seen others use different types of magnetic tape, but when I found this, I had to give it a try.  Allows the magnet to hold your dies without adding all the bulk to your book.
Just look how thin it is!

I am not sure yet if I am going to use my bind-it-all to bind the pages together.  I'm more leaning toward a personal planner notebook (like DayTimers) so I can add pages as needed.  I can use my Crop-A-Dile to punch the holes in the chipboard.  I will post pictures of the finished project as soon as it's completed.

Until then, keepin' my fingers inky and my Cricut chirpin'!

Camper Craftin' Again!

Just a quick post to share my camper craftin du jour. Quick because I forgot my keyboard and can't type as fast on my iPad.

Needed to do a birthday card and haven't had the time all week to get to it. My Gypsy broke this week so I was without one of my favorite tools (no worries, Provo Craft is replacing it for free!). And all I have are meager supplies in my camper. I went from this...



...to this...


...to this...(outside)


(inside)



The cardstock is from Gina K. Not sure of the stamps I used for the lettering. Have had them a while. The faces on the paper bags were hand drawn.

Hope you enjoyed my quick lil share today. Heading to the golf course for some birthday golf with friends.

Until next time, keeping my fingers inky and my Cricut chirping!
