I've been "Chirpped"

So I've finally been "chirpped". If you don't know what that means let me explain ... Over on the cricut MB Provocraft has a newsletter where they share up and coming events, new products and they showcase projects posted on the message board. Well .... I've been showcased for the very FIRST time

Here's the link to the chirp as well http://www.cricut.com/newsletters/volume.aspx?ID=242

Monograms, Monograms, Monograms

So my sister needs some monogram cards for gifts so I decided I would give here a few options to choose from.

The first option is a simple aperture monogram card

If you are interested in the cut file please visit Diane's website at (http://capadiadesigns.blogspot.com/)

The cut file post can be found at (http://capadiadesigns.blogspot.com/2008/04/larger-5-x-7-oval-aperture-card.html)

The next option is a dual color embossed card with the individual letter

The scallops are cut from nestabilities and the B is cut from the calligraphy cart *i think*.

The third option is another embossed card with an individual dual colored letter. The letter was a total scraplift from Capadia.

I applied for Robyn's Design team (from mypinkstamper), if you haven't checked her out yet you can find her at http://www.mypinkstamper.com and we had to submit a project to be considered. Unfortanetly I wasn't chosen as one of her designers .... maybe next time. But here is the project I submitted

Wedding Invitations

There have been a lot of talk over on the Cricut MB with people asking about wedding invitations and making them with your cricut. My sister got married in September of 2009 and asked me to make her inviations. What I did was come up with some designs that I knew would be "do able" for me and drew them out. She picked a couple that she liked and I made the samples. From there I cut samples so she could see thme and help her better choose. Here are the two samples that I made for her.

This is the one she chose:

This is the other sample:

With the invitation portion out of the jacket

Just the invitation portion

Both invitations were made with my Cricut and Design studio.

Birthday Greetings

So last week a woman I work with saw me working on some cards at lunch time and asked me to bring in my cards so she could see them. After she saw my "work" she asked if she could order a birthday card for her sister. Sure no problem. So she said her sister likes red, black, white, shoes, coach products and poodles. So this is what I came up with ....
