Happy Friday! I hope you’re all ready for the weekend. Maybe some of you have some crafty plans. I definitely do. My boyfriend recently surprised me with a Cricut Explore for Valentine’s Day. It’s been so fun to design projects and I’m really impressed with the cuts this machine produces.

Today I’m sharing with you a simple but pretty ballet birthday card. I made this for my niece, she’s a beautiful dancer and I know she’ll love this card. At the end of this post you’ll find a tutorial video that includes all the measurements and card details. You can also visit me at my YouTube channel for more card ideas and tutorials.

Cartridges used: Twinkle Toes, Creative Cuts and Font & Basic Shapes.

To make a coordinating envelope, I cut a second pair of ballet slippers to adhered them to the envelope.


Thanks so much for stopping by today and checking out my card. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Hi Crafty Friends! I’m so excited to share today’s card with you. I made it for Tacky Tuesday’s Challenge. The challenge is to use the Whale from the Create A Critter cartridge and make a play on words for the sentiment. I love puns, especially ones that are animal related. So I had a lot of fun making this card. If you would like to join the challenge go to FaceBook and search “Tacky Tuesday’s Challenge” and join the group.

She's still adorable even when she's sad.

Patterned paper from Me & My Big Ideas. Her little tear and spout are covered with Crystal Effects.

I typed the sentiment on my computer using Kristen ITC at 16 point.

I used my Gypsy to get the frown on my whale. To see a complete tutorial on how to do this click here to watch my YouTube video.

Gypsy image of creating the whale frown.

In the image above I have grouped together two top layers for the whale. For image #1 in red, I hid the mouth. For image #2 in grey, I hid the body, flipper and both eyes. Next I rotated the image so it was upside down and then aligned it’s mouth where image #1’s mouth was. Then I welded them together.  When you press the eyeball key to preview your cut, you will see the image below.

Hi, today I have a tutorial for you. I read about this technique on the Splitcoaststampers forum. In the video below I will show you how to use Aleene’s Tack-It Over & Over glue on your rubber stamps, so you can mount them on acrylic blocks. All you need is Aleene’s Tack-It Over & Over glue, a sponge brush and unmounted rubber stamps. This was my first time trying this technique and it was very easy. If you would like to learn how to do this, please watch my video below.
