BBTB2 4th of July


Michelle is challenging us at BBTB2 to a 4th of July project -- and I have a twist on that! A friend of mine has a friend who shares her birthday with the day of All-American fireworks. This is what I made for her using the cricut cartridge Stand and Salute and fine glitter cardstock paper. Hope that she gets to see fireworks on her day!

BBTB2 Summer Fun


Melanie from BBTB2 is challenging us all to a Summer Fun project. Is there something more fun than boys pretending to be sea monsters by covering themselves with seaweed? 


I used "Pack Your Bags" cricut cart for the 6x12 We R Memory Keepers pocket page.

Now a Stampin Up Demonstrator!


I blame Christina Berger! (She is the other crafty chick on this blog...) She exposed me to great papercrafting supplies, from quality cardstock to fun diecuts and punches -- even stamps! I never thought I would be stamper -- but these stamps always come out crisp and clean. So I blame her 100%. I am now a Stampin' Up! demonstrator (and that awesome photo is a Stampin' Up pic of some of their products). She made me get a website too...so if you are interested, stop by: http://laurapizz.stampinup.net

Thank you for your support!

Dad's Day for BBTB2


It's time to make some Dad's Day Cards for the BBTB2 challenge! I used Father's Day Seasonal cart and some Simple Stories patterned paper. I think that I have enough...One for my dad because he IS the best dad ever:

And my boys can choose one for their dad and hubby can choose one for his:

Hello. Kitty :)

Hello Kitty Pop-up Card Box



Hello Kitty Cricut Cartridge used.
I love making the pop-up card boxes, they are so fun with a big "wow" factor. And the plus side to these is, they fold flat and fit into a regular mailing envelope.

BBTB2 Alter a Cricut Cut

This is my challenge for BBTB2 -- Alter a Cricut CutI love transforming simple cricut cuts by digging into my craft supplies -- looking for ways to make die cuts special. For this challenge, you can use anything from paints, inks, modge podge, glitter and glue or simply use colored pens or markers. The diecut theme is up to you. Here is my project -- a cricut cut butterfly from Serenade Solutions -- embellished with Martha Stewart microbeads and some Glimmer Mist.
