Pink Paislee Artisan Tape,maybe it would be easier to tell you what I didn't use

More Craziness

Hey there!
It's Day 3 of my 500 post celebration...
I can't remember the last time I posted 3 days in a row!'s a couple pictures of some more craft fair stuff I've been working on
I made these gift wrap kits with baker's twine, raffia, stamped shipping wrap, and handmade tags
I love that more rustic look for wrapping gifts

I used stamps from Unity, CTMH, and Autumn Leaves
I'm going to do some with white butcher paper too
All this craftiness has got me thinking about opening an ETSY Store
Today's addition to the prize package is
15 plain shipping tags
for you to decorate with your own crafty goodness
maybe you can use the vinyl in the prize, or the baker's twine to help you out!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!

I'm a Cricut Whore

for years I've avoided the whole Cricut thing...
Not that I didn't think they were cool or anything mind you I just didn't go there
I figured it would be too complicated for my technically challenged brain
I so caved
last week my friend at work mentioned that her friend Leah bought the "big one" and was selling her "middle one"...ok I'm not up on all the lingo yet was a decent deal so I figured Merry Christmas to me
Same said friend offered to let me borrow some of her cartriges...
how lucky am I? and how nice is she?
Her Name is Suzi
You might want to be her friend too
anyway...Suze brought me a few cartriges
I turned into a whore
a Cricut Whore
Who knows I might start making Cricut Scrapbook Porn Videos to sell so I can buy more cartriges..
I can probably cut out some pretty cute lingerie
Ok not that you needed that visual

I haven't even gotten past the Wild Card Cartrige yet
The layered argyle pattern here was cut on my cricut
It's so awesome
This one I used
EAD Stickerz in EMO LOVE and Damask Background
I cut the sentiment with the Cricut

and uh..yeah I cut that OMG CUTE A$$ Owl with the
Cricut Wild Card Cartrige

So Thanks to Suzi and her friend Leah.
and thanks for stopping by

I wonder if it's too early to break out ELF...
