So I have not really had much time to work on my scrapbooking, but I will share a picture of a card, and envelope I recently made using the Expression, and the Bo Bunny paper line. Once my life gets back to normal I will be posting my latest creations, the ones I have waiting for me.....screaming to be completed.

I found these cute little jars at Walmart, and I used the Plantin cartridge using the Cricut expression machine. I was so happy to hear that the teachers loved the gift.

I love this line from My Minds Eye called.... Be Loved. It went well with these pretty flowers from Prima that I found in my local Michael's craft store. I have been using my Fiskars scissors so much lately which gives my cards a deckle edge, a look that I have favored so much lately.
I have always layered my printed paper, trying to bring each paper in the collection together. My all time favorite color to scrap with is the color brown. I love how it looks with pink, light blue, green, and cream. I hope you like this card. Have a great week everyone......BBS

It was a such long process, with background checks, drug testing, I thought I would never hear the words you're hired. I couldn't believe it! The company will be shippig me the products of supplies to play and train with......Holy Moly! The best part is that I leave tomorrow morning for 4 days to Chicago for the Cricut Training Convention, all expense paid, flight, hotel, and the best part....I will have my own room.......Yippee =) We will also be trying Chicagos famous deep pan pizza, and visiting the local scrapbook store that will be open late for us.
There will be lot of training packed in those days, and about 200 demonstrators from all over the USA and Canada are attending. We will be staying at the Hilton which is right next to the O'Hare airport. Right now its about 2 in the morning and silly me is still working on these cute little cards that I will be swapping with other demostrators. I can't wait to see what they come up with, and bring home.
During the training, they will be teaching us how to use the Expression, Gypsy, the new Cuddlebug, and the latest thing to hit the market the Cricut Cake.........I'm in heaven! The Cricut Cake is similiar to the Expression but you will be able to decorate cakes just like those pretty ones they sell for hundreds of dollars. How cool is that.
I will be teaching @ the local craft store in Chino on Sundays for the next 2 months, and if all goes well, the job will contnue through the holidays and we will recieve the new product they will be introducing later this year. So come on by and say hello to me, I will be starting next Sunday. I will update you on what I learned when I get back.........Now off to the Windy City, wish me luck.

How fun was this day at the beach. It as such a beautiful day in Huntington Beach, Ca. We had tons of fun and the weather couldn't be more perfect. I must have took well over 100 photos of Nicholas, his girlfriend Melissa, and my 2 youngest boys Vincent & Diego running and playing in the freezing cold waves.
I love these 2 images I caught of Nick & Mel holding on to dear life because they knew that the water that was about to hit them was very cold. Dont you wish that you were young and carefree again? I do.
For this layout I used Creative Imaginations paper line by Christine Adolph, I love it. The flowers are of course by Prima, ribbon by Making Memories, green pearls by Kaiker Kraft, and the cardstock by Bazzil.
Have a fabulous weekend........see ya soon!

I don't think so! I had so much Cloe's Closet printed paper left over from making my twin mini album, I thought why not make Christmas cards.
I can't believe how busy I have been lately creating. I am getting ready to send some submissions in, and I can't wait. I feel that this is my year, and nothing is going to stop me.
On this card I used Jeni Bowlin journal card, Stickles, Pink Paislee glitter, Studio 8 rhinestones, Prima Flowers, May Art ribbon, and Making Memories Cloe's Closet line.

Just believe..........I have thought these words over and over again. It has been a favorite phrase of mine for years. I wanted to make a card with a cute rub on I found.
As I was sitting at my LSS store I though I wanted to do something different. I have been eyeing those cute little flowers that scrappers all over have been making out of printed paper.
I asked a fellow scrap artistfor help, and she said how difficult it was, and it takes time to make one. But as she was explaining this to me, she never once told me how to make it.
But if you know me, I only asked once for help. If I can't find the answer, then I move forward ,and make it my mission to learn on my own.
I simply cut a 12" printed card stock into 3/4" strips. I used 2 strips and fold them in half. So I took scissors and cut one side of the fold every 1/2" and started turning it in a circle. Every few turns, I put double sided tape on the bottom to keep it together. Just keep repeating the process until you get the desired look. I inked the edges and added Stickles for an added effect. I hope you guys like it.
