Hello Crafty Friends! How have you been? I hope you’re ready for a fun Cricut Cardz Challenge! The theme for challenge #106 is “April Showers”. Make a card for any occasion using an umbrella, rain boots, clouds, raindrops, puddles, etc. from any cartridge(s) and using any colors you’d like.

I had a lot of fun making this card and hope you like it. I cut the umbrella using the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. I bet you can tell by my card that I’m ready for Summer! What about you? For more details on my card please watch the video below.

Who wants a cocktail?

Hi Crafty Friends! Today is the start of Cricut Cardz Challenge #100!!! How awesome is that! The theme this week is “It’s June in January!”. Make a card for any occasion, using any cartridge(s) and using any colors you’d like, with Summer as your theme.

Today is my Birthday and it’s pouring down rain, so I’d love for it to be summer right now! For this challenge I made a Thank You card using the Just Because Cards Cricut cartridge.

This card definitely makes me think of a warm Summer day!

I used glossy accents on the seeds & popped up the watermelon on pop dots.

Thanks so much for checking out my card!  In celebration of my Birthday, I’m giving away this cute little Valentine’s stamp and a few other things! Just leave a comment and a way to contact you if you win. I’ll draw a name January 28! Thanks so much for all your comments and friendships! 🙂

Leave a comment to win me!

Happy Summer Crafty Friends! I hope everyone is having a great summer! It’s been beautiful here in Oregon. I’ve been enjoying my Summer and soaking up some of that sunshine! What are your Summer plans? One thing I know I’m doing is seeing the new Harry Potter! Anyone else?

Today I’d like to share with you my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #82. The challenge this week is to make a card with Summer Apparel or An Accessory. You can use any cartridges and colors that you’d like. Super easy! I kept my card really simple and used minimal supplies. I also played with my new Nestabilities dies. (Whoa that rhymed! Lol!) I tried embellishing the bikini with rhinestones and then with pearls. But neither of them looked good. So I decided to keep it simple and let the layered scallops and patterned paper do the talking!

I hope you like it and come on over to CCC and join us this week! We can’t wait to see your new Summer cards!

I love all the bright colors and the Yellow Polka Dot Bikini let's everyone know, Summer is here!

The yellow scallop circle and the bikini are popped up on Foam Adhesive & Zots 3D Glue Dots.


Card Recipe:

  • Cartridge – Paper Doll Dress Up
  • Patterned Paper – DCWV Celebration Stack (orange) & Target Dollar Bin (polka dot)
  • Nestabilities Dies – Large Circle and Large Scallop Circle Set
  • Ink – Stampin Up, YoYo Yellow & Orange ColorBox Pigment Ink
  • Scotch Foam Adhesive & Zots 3D Glue Dots
