About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop Day ONE

If  you haven't started at http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/ if not please start at the beginning

Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room's March 100 cartridge Blog hop!
 Now we bring it to you the first full weekend of every month.
Collectively the design team uses over 100 different Cricut Cartridges in their projects during this hop.
This month we have a ton of guest designers....

If you came from Julie http://www.thecricutchirp.com
then you are well on your way.

You are currently visiting me.....CRYSTAL...... ENJOY!!!
First up on the list of projects is this sign I made for mine and my hubs his and hers office.  I recently completed a complete makeover of the room and this bare spot was staring at me from between the curtain panels.

I found a metal sign in my stash and painted it black and then using my Gypsy and Art Deco and Reminisce Accents carts. and some bronze vinyl cut out the lettering and adhered it.  The "Workaholics Anonymous" lettering is pretty straight forward, but the banner at the bottom was altered and I added our surname into it.
My hubs is such a workaholic that this was soooo appropriate for him.
Then I hot glued some ribbon for hanging and call it done.

Next up is a cute 5" x 5" card I made using Art Nouveau cart.  I loved this Koi fish. 
I made a card base and then layered it w/ black card stock. I found a chinese written book at a thrift store and I torn a page from it to layer.  The sea green piece was embossed with a Plum blossom folder.  Used several yellow-ish colors of card stock to cut the fish. I adhered an eyelet for the eye. The sentiment was made to look like a fortune out of a fortune cookie.

Next up is my hubs.  Well,  not my real hubs, but a close facsimile.  
I found this cute statute in a thrift store and painted it.  Yes, it looks like Dr. Phil, but so does my hubs......LOL  The only difference is my hubs has beautiful eyes....not brown.

I used Suburbia cart. to cut some more bronze vinyl.  My hubs works as a Health and Safety Officer and some of the guys call him "Safety Dude"  I just had to add that wording to his statue.

The last project may need a little warning ahead of time.  If you don't like zombies, scroll quickly past.  But who doesn't like a zombie....really????

I'm a huge huge fan of The Walking Dead.  It's filmed only approx. 45 mins. from our house.  I've currently worked as an extra on other movies being filmed here in GA.
  So, I'm doing everything I can to get to be a zombie.....
I WILL be a zombie one day....believe me!!!
Anyway, here's my project.....its a scrapbook page I created.  
I took pics of me,  my hubs, and our daughter and made us into zombies.

I used the Wrap It Up cart. to create the sentiment.  Its a sentiment that already exist on the cartridge, so all I did was cut it to the size I wanted and adhered it using my Xyron.

Hope you enjoyed my part of this Cricut hop.  I've enjoyed making all of these projects to share with you.
Now,  go visit everyone else and don't forget to leave some love.
