Tickets using Cricut

For the surprise birthday we had rented a 45 passenger limo bus, from Cali Party Bus (if your in San Diego check out this company for your next limo).  We decided to hand out tickets to make sure that everyone made it on the bus, and some have cute sayings on the back telling people something to do while on the bus.

I used my new cart Summer Vacation and cut the ticket at 1.5" and added my own black backing.

5 Easy Steps to a Birthday Invitation...Fast and Easy to Make

I have been wanting to post this 30th birthday invitation I made for my SIL, but had to wait until her surprise birthday party was over, since she is a follower on my site.

This is a really easy birthday invitation to make. Here are the 5 simple steps.
1. Cut black cardstock at 5" x 7"
2. Cut white cardstock at 4.5" x 6.5"
3. Design wording in MS Word, run white paper thru printer
4. Use a punch out of a cupcake (I used the MS punch and cut black and pink glitter, then cut off pink tops and placed over black, also embossed black thru CB)
5. Adhere all layers

Invitations using my Cricut

Here is a quick explanation of how I made the invitations using my Cricut.  I cut the colored card stock at 5" x 7". I then cut the white card stock at 6" x 6" then ran the white sheets thru my printer for the wording.  I then placed (4) white invitations onto my Cricut mat and cut out my marquee at 4".  I then used orange and teal paper, and cut the shadow marquee at 4" as well.  The design was cut from page 55 of Storybook called swirl at 2" and some at 2 1/4".

PS- I did have everything on DS and my laptop crashed at that final moment, I then had to manual cut everything out.

10 year Reunion Scrapbook Layout

Here is a LO I made of my husband's 10 year HS Reunion, unfortunately I did not have any close ups of him, but some of the girlfriends of his good friends.  The HS colors were purple and yellow/gold, and yes it does look like the colors of the Lakers.

I used Storybook for the scalloped circle, and Stone Script for the letters, also included was a MS punch for the small flowers, and embossed with Cuttlebug "Seeing Dots" and "Swiss Dots." For the purple rhinestones I used Adirondack alcohol inks in Stream and Wild Plum to create a matching purple to my LO.  I also used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Fully Purple and Gold to add color the flowers on the left.

2 Page Layout

I was the Matron of Honor a couple years back in my friend’s wedding. The wedding was held in San Diego right on the water.

It's always so hard for me to narrow down just a couple pictures when I had more than a hundred to chose from. I decided to do a double page layout. On page one I used Sentimentals, page 31 and cut out Florish 1 with all layers, then embossed with cuttlebug. Also used a MS punch for the border on both pages. Also I decided use a lot of Glossy Accents on the Flourish and "Liemandt" stickers to add more dimension.
