I Got It! I Got It! Welcome, Cricut Explore!

It finally arrived… about a week ago!  I have been doing my best to find time to explore my new Cricut Explore! I must say that it is way above the rest of all electronic die cutting machines, and it is soooo easy to use! Just watch my youtube video and see for yourself! Enjoy!

A Real Sweet Quickie!

I really had fun putting this card together using sweet pieces I found in my craft room.  I played without rules or restrictions and just enjoyed the process!  Sometimes you've just got to let go and create! You can find out what I used by watching my video posted below!

"How Have You Bean?" - My MondayMojo Challenge/Entry & A Video!!!

Before I tell you about my entry for MojoMonday, I'd like to thank all of you for taking the time to view my craft room video on youtube.  It has been so encouraging to get so many views and positive feedback.  I plan on doing more… including a video of how I created this card for this challenge… so check back a little later and I should have this posted!  The video has posted!! See the bottom of this post!

Now on to the challenge…Here's the sketch…

and here are my ingredients….

...And here's the video!!!

I featured a stamp set by Avocado Arts called "Perfect Blend" and a "note paper" die by Papertrey Ink.  My base card paper is also by Papertrey Ink, but the rest of the paper is by DCWV, including adhesive cork…which I forgot to include in the photo!  I embossed the cork using a coffee bean pattern embossing folder by Sizzix… as a coffee lover, I think I'm in love with it! I colored my coffee cup, by the way, with Copic markers R81 and R83.

Thanks for stopping by!
