YES! You are the right page! I just have a new name! :) After realizing that I do more than just scrapbooking, I've decided to change the name and will be changing the look.. I'd do a whole new blog but I'd hate to have to start all over.
Here you will find scrapbooking ideas. There's a ton of older posts that used the Cricut, but lately I haven't been using it much and well, my sewing machine is gaining more miles by the day.

Father's Day Cards.. and some files!

Here are 2 Father's Day Cards that I made.. and.. some files to use for Father's Day!

This first one, I did a "Crumpled Ink'd Paper" look to it. I ink'd my paper, then crumpled it. Father and Daugher Silhouette available below, along with the "Happy Father's Day"


Crumpled up Ink paper used again.. cut out as a Postage Stamp (See older post with Postage Stamp Birthday Card) Old Car Silhouette available also in older post. Happy Fathers Day was cut with Wild Card.


FATHER AND BABY GIRL Silhouette (and tomorrow I will modify this to look like a baby boy..)

Asian Flair - Owl Whimsy

The Current Challenge on Owl Whimsy is to use their New Asian Flair stamp!

Here's my "Submission" for the free stamp set!

I started with plain white cardstock, covered it with Tim Holtz Distress ink (Antique Linen) and then printed the stamp.. HINT - Print stamp, THEN ink and crimple. it was a PAIN getting crimpled paper through the printer! Flowers were colored in with Brush Pens, and then also I outlined the vase. "Flowers" are Yarn wrapped around twist ties. I cut a slot on the top of the vase, stuck them in, and then used foam tape to mount on to the background paper - which is from the Far East DCWV stack, but you can't really see it too much. The Japanese Symbol Means "Friend", which was also printed on the crumpled paper. I also used Tim Holtz's Frayed Burlap, as an accent color. The overall size of this card is 7 1/2 x 5. (such odd sizes!)

Thanks for looking!

Misc Files

Here's a few Random Files that I did.



New Car - Camaro

By Request.. Here is a Chevy Camaro. Not sure on the "exact" year

But, I am showing you the picture of the real car, and then what it looked like after tweaking and coloring and.. well.. it was a long night with MS Paint! It's still not "perfect" and once I get a better picture of one, I'll upload it.


2 More Antique Cars

Here are 2 more cars for your Cutting pleasure! these would look great on Father's Day cards too! You will need SCAL to cut these out.

This first one is a 1911 Ford


This one here is a 1908 Roundabout

Honest Scrap Award!

I was given this award by EIYIYI at Dropped Stitches. The rules are to state 10 honest things about oneself and then pass this on to 7 other bloggers. Here goes.

1 - I have a younger brother, who got in trouble more than I did, because I blamed everything that I did on him.
2-I was 4 when I started Swimming lessons, and took it for 5 years, and still couldn't get past the "Beginners" group. (at the age of 9, I was the oldest in the class, and I still wouldn't jump off the diving board)
3- My Drivers License shows me as a blonde, but I'm really brunette - I get funny looks now and then cause the picture looks NOTHING like me!
4- I love my job, and I have dreams of physically being "stuck" in the CAD program that we use - I design kitchens, and you know how frusterating it is to be dreaming, heading to the 'fridge' and there's nothing in it!
5- I like to cook, however I don't do it enough.
6- The only way I can drink coffee that I brew at home, is to do 1/2 milk, 1/2 coffee and lots of chocolate syrup.
7- I am scared of failing financially, but I don't worry about money.
8- I could eat Pizza everyday - With Onions and Green peppers.. and extra extra cheese..
9- I can't stand one of my grandmothers, and every time I go to see my parents, I don't tell her that I'm up there so I don't have to see her.
10 - I spend WAY too much time on Facebook. Here's a link to my page. I have 350 "friends" on there, but I don't know 150ish of them. I love playing Mafia wars, and those 150ish I added so they could be in my mafia.

And I'd like to pass this on to::

78th Birthday Car with Model T

My Grandfather is going to be 78 on the 15th. Here is the card that I made for him!
Card Base - Cut with SCAL - if you look closely, you can see that it was cut as a postage stamp. (He collects stamps, so that's where I started!)
I did it in white for a stronger base, and then I did the top layer as a separate piece. I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Antique Linen - to create the "old" look. I applied the distress ink to blank white paper, then crinkled it many times, and then added more to get the ink right on the creases. Then, I cut out the postage stamp image on my cricut. (note - Next time I do this, I'm going to cut the image first, then ink and crinkle. The blade kinda cut it, but being bubbly and uneven it did not cut all the way through.)

The Car is an 1915 Model T - SVG that I made last night, and then I cut a "78" for the upper corner.




By Request.. Here is a Mustang.. Although I am not sure of the year.. 1960's forsure.. Looks like a Shelby Mustang.. 1967-1968 ish.. (if anyone knows forsure, LMK, and I'll update this post!)
You will need SCAL to cut this file.


1966 Cobra

Here is another one, that would be perfect for Fathers Day!

You will need SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) to cut this file

1966 COBRA

1915 Model T

I am so excited!!!

So, I found this image of a silhouette of a model T card... That I will show what I do with later, once I cut it..
After going between Paint clean it up, and inkscape..
This is the end result!!
It looks like it will cut out OK, and I took out the tiny cuts with Paint
The wheels are a little loopsided, but hey.. I don't think they were 'perfect' back then!
This is a 1915 Model T Ford

Anyways, file is attached, I hope that someone else could use it for Fathers Day!
This is and SVG, and cutable with the Cricut, and SCAL
