Cards for little girls

I have been busy making cards for little girls.  I didn't mean for them to be all pink, but it ended up that way...

I have done a ballet dancer, crown and Peppa Pig using Cricut cartridges 'Twinkle Toes', 'Birthday Bash' and 'Create-a-critter' respectively.

Hole lot of fun

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge is having a 'Fun with Puns' challenge this week.

Here is my pun layout "Hole lot of Fun".  My kids thought it was pretty funny to jump in the hole that dad was digging to plant our orange tree in! 

Title cut using Cricut cartridge 'Lifes a Beach', gumboots from 'Paisley' and spade from 'Everyday paper Dolls' (I think...).  I ripped brown paper and layered them so it looked like the photos were stuck in the dirt.

Gingerbread House

I made a recipe card for Gingerbread.  Its a easy recipe and makes lot (I usually make a batch, halve it and freeze one portion for another time).

I used Cricut cartridge 'My Community' to make the gingerbread house.  Check out Fantabulous Cricut Challenge to see their 'Kiss the Cook' challenge.

Invites for a girls nite

My friend asked me to make her some invitations for a 'girls nite' party.  I thought cocktail invites screamed girly nite to me!

I used Cricut cartridge 'Nifty Fifties' for the cocktail glass, Cuttlebug embossing folder 'Dot Matrix' to look like bubbles, a real cocktail umbrella and a bit of bling (it is a girly party after all).  All the details were typed out on the back.

Valentines day

My card for my Valentine. A very simple design.

 I used the Gypsy to create this card using Cricut cartridge 'Hello Kitty Font'.  Check out the other Cricut inspired cards at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge

How to train a dragon

I found some great viking paper (strangely, from Smiggle), and knew it would be perfect for my 'How to train a Dragon 'layout.  It was too busy to use the entire page, so I only used half of it.  I decided to go for a diagonal look for something a bit different too.

I always collect tickets and other memrobillia, and I love to include them in my layouts.

I have sooo many Christmas layouts to do!  This is my Christmas Day layout using non-traditional Christmas colours, which makes a nice change.

This year I focussed on using photos of family opening Christmas presents.  I had the perfect rub-on that says

 'Christmas may be many things,
Or it may be a few,
For you, the joy is each new toy,
But for me its watching you'
