Vintage Tim Holtz - Chunky Charm Swap

I participated in a chunky charm swap at the cricut message boards. I made 6 of these charms to swap with the other gals. The clock acutally works if you put a battery in it. It would make a great purse charm I think!

Easel Card - Robotz Cartridge Font Used

This was my first Easel card. I made it for a gal at work who was turning 50. I don't think she really wanted to display her age for everyone to see....probably should have thought that one through more.

Trifold Shutter Card

This was the first trifold shutter card I've ever made. It was to celebrate Mom and Dad Rollins' 40 year anniversary.  It was really fun to make!I can't remember which cricut cartridges I used on this one unfortunately.

Altered Cards - Micheals Great Find

I found these cute cards at Micheals today. They were on sale for .60 for a set of 6.  I used my 25% off coupon which brought them down to .45 per set.  Look how cute they are after I added my special touch:
Up close on my favorite ones.

I think this Bee is totally coute. I think he is from Simply Charmed....but i wouldn't know since my cartridge has gone missing :(

Summer Pin Cushion Swap - Beach Pail with Stick Pins

Here's a pin cushion I made for a swap at the Cricut Boards.
I decoupaged the pail on Friday night and let it sit for a day.
Then I used beach themed fabric to cover the batting and syrofoam insert.
I made some jewel themed and shell themed stick pins.
Then I glued little pearls around the entire pail (probably should have thought that one through a ltitle more - next time I'm buying a string of pearls).
The cricut cut is of a shovel - from Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge.

Here's up close.
