Valentine's Day 2016

This year, I took the rest of my crafting supplies out of storage. One of the things I uncovered was my Cuttlebug! I forgot how much I loved that thing and along with some Spellbinder Nestabilities dies, I made most of my Valentine's this year with them. JP went to New Jersey one weekend to hang out with his cousins, so I watched girly movies all Saturday and Sunday while making these.  Along with die cuts, I used lots of powder and glittering embossing. Overall, I was very happy with how they came out!

Also, if anyone was wondering, the movies I watched were as follows:
  • Sabrina (my all time favorite girly flick ever. (The remake though) I'm a sucker for Harrison Ford in a bow tie!
  • Bridget Jones' Diary
  • The Wedding Date
  • Notting Hill
  • Cruel Intentions
  • Mystic Pizza
  • Hannah and her Sisters

Sweeeeet Birthday!

My boyfriend's sister, Michelle is a fan of Finding Nemo so for her birthday, I wanted to use my Pixar Cricut cartridge to make something for her. There are so many great cuts in this cartridge. I also used letter stamps to create the phrases. I made little squirt because who doesn't love him?

Sunset Distress

Here's a secret- blending distress inks is really hard. No matter how many youtube videos I watch, it never seems to come out the way I want it to. For the card below, I wanted to use some nautical stamps my boyfriend's brother Tim gave me. I've made him fun cards before but this was was supposed to be a little more heartfelt. I wanted to create a beach at sunset and in retrospect, I don't know why I added an ahoy stamp when there is no ship...haha Maybe I am analyzing this too closely and should just go back to watching youtube videos.

Anybody know any good bloggers with distress ink videos?
