Let Freedom Ring





When I found out that the theme @ Erica's Craft Room was 
FOURTH OF JULY using the STAND & SALUTE 
Cricut Cartridge I had to share my story about the 
Card for the Troops for Martin Luther King Jr 
Day of Service @ my church 


The "Let Freedom Ring" and Liberty Bell" are found on page 30

Liberty Bell cut @ 2.5"
Let Freedom Ring cut @ 3"


This is basically the card that we would do.
I have the kids six and up make the back ground Pattern Paper
with White Card Stock, Red and White Acrylic Paint and Shaving Cream


This is a big hit with kids of all ages
This is a project the parents love to do with their children


Before the event I cut out about 200 of so of each image needed for the cards
The cards for this post I used EK Success 3D-Dots 
to the Liberty Bell made from Craft Paper Card Stock
that was colored in Ranger's "Perfect Gold" Perfect Pearls

I accented the top of the bell and crack with Ranger's "Copper" Stickles


Every year I look forward to heading up this event
Even though we do not do any 3-D effects the mass card production for the Troops
the card come out great.


I hope that you enjoyed the project as much as I love doing and sharing it.
Happy crafting and thanks for looking

A Bouquet of Spring


Hello and Welcome to my first
Design Team post

This project is something that I made for my Mothers for Mother's Day.



When I decided to make this I wanted to use what I call "Ugly Paper"
Now "Ugly Paper" in not necessarily ugly but some that you will not really use,
 you know the papers that are in the packs.

The Pattern Paper that I used for the I had for so long that I can not remember the Pack of Paper I got it from.

I cut the Vase from Plantin SchoolBook page 80 "Tall Ball" 
I cut at "Fit to Page" for the vase size.
I put together Mog Pog and cut of the handles

I placed foam at the bottom of the vases so that I was able to stick Pipe Cleaning Wire in it for the steams of the flowers.



The Flower were cut from Accent Essentials at 2 inches
on page 63 and 56

The center of flower were cut out with a 1 inch EK Success Scallop circle punch.

I cut two flowers for every steam used and glued them together on the steams.




The Butterflies were cut from Picturesque on page 65 at 2 inches

This was simple to make but can have a dramatic affect.


Thank for looking,
I hope you enjoyed my first DT Post.

Ranger & Tim Holtz Products

Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 101


Just wanted to say that I am starting to get another obsession 
along with my Cricut

I have brought just about every thing that the ACMoore that I teach at has.



Here is how I am storing them for now.


I am taking the Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 101 online class series, and I have to same that after the first class today and am pleasantly surprised to learn a lot abut inks and pants.

I can't wait to see what else I will learn during the next 2 weeks.

I want to learn it all.

So that I can teach.
