You should have come from

This month I made 4 different projects using 4 different cartridges.
So just a heads up, this is a long post with lots of pictures!!!


This first card was made with the Cotton Candy cut
from the County Fair cartridge.
This cartridge has some really fun
Fair related cuts on it!!
The cotton candy and all the layers were cut at 4".
It is mounted on an action wobble.
I used glitter paper for the top layer
of the cotton candy and then
embossed it using the Divine Swirls folder.
This cute sentiment is from My Pink Stamper's "Sweetest Cupcakes" stamp set.

This next card is from the adorable Ole' Cartridge.
Being hispanic, this was a must have
cartridge for me!!  I made
this adorable birthday
card for my mom.
Her birthday was this past week

She is mounted on an action wobble
so she can dance the night away!!
She was cut at 4.5".
The border frame
was cut at 5".
The lovely senorita has a mole on her
cheek just like my mom!!
I used Peachy Keens Laughy Taffy stamp set.
I used the Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder on her hair.
For those of you that do not speak spanish
(ha, I don't either...LOL)
This says Feliz Cumpleanos, which
means Happy Birthday!!
This was cut at 2".

This next card was made using the
Nifty Fifties cartridge.
I just love this poodle cut!!
I think it is my favorite of all the poodle cuts.
My spoiled dog #2 Jasmine is
a minature poodle.
I used my gypsy to weld the
base image together to
make a shaped card.
the base was cut at 5.5"

The poodle was cut at 5.5".
I used the swiss dots Cuttlebug embossing folder
on the body and the divine swirls
on the fur.  I also added some Diamond
Stickles to the swirls.  I gave her
a diamond collar and toenails!!
The sentiment is from the K Andrews
"All About Animals" stamp set.
I am entering this card in the Simply Sunday
Challenge over at Getting Cricky and
Celebrate the Occasion

This last project is my overall favorite!!
I made this beautiful box from
Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2.
It is the Bride Box cut at fit to page,
which cut at 8.75".  I also used
the scoring blade to score the lines.
I added crystal accents to the bodice.
some black ribbon and a white paper rose
I had in my stash.  I inked the edges of
the rose with black ink and dipped it in glitter.
 On the bottom of the dress I used a crystal border
and this beautiful flower ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by, I hoped you enjoyed my projects
as much as I enjoyed making them!!
