Fun Time

Now and then I take a Cricut cartridge and I sit for a day cutting most of the die cuts out. Sometimes I just stack them in a box lid, sometimes I fully embellish them. So...I have trays and trays AND trays of die cuts sitting around. For 3 days I have been in my studio tidying up. Some of the die cuts are going into the packages of dies I sell at the scrapbook clubs, some are being made into "card packs". Here are a few.
I love this little froggy that was cut from Create A Critter. The sentiment is partially done from Basic George and rubber stamping. I love the paper which you will also see on the following cards. I bought several packages of wonderful double sided papers in a 6x6 size along with some of the new wonderful Nesties from Die Cuts R Us store. You should check Claudia's shop out here.

Here's froggy again. I love frogs (who doesn't know this about me, raise your hand) and so when I found this cutie on Create a Critter, I cut many. This is a card pack containing 6 cards. The papers are altered a bit to create a different background design on each card. The sentiment is computer generated. See the black background with that wonderful cut out loopy design? That is one of my new Nestabilities from DCRU store. The flower is a MS punch.
I have a rubber stamp closet. There are tubs and tubs of rubber stamps that I so heavily relied on BC. BC - "before Cricut". I still use them, but perhaps not as much. I love this stamp that says "the best gifts are tied with heartstrings. The double sided papers from the Dies Cuts R Us store are bright and colorful on both sides of each design and I really had to just stop agonizing on which side to use by cutting the paper to the A2 size card and adding a wee strip of another side. I love these little cards. So bright and cheery. The hearts are big punches in two sizes, and I ran the rubber stamped sentiment through my embossing folders.
Thanks for taking a peek at my daily endeavor.

Carole, I popped in just to say hi and could have sworn I already commented on this post, but looks like I've got a case of the crazies! You ALWAYS have the best papers, color and patterns and put them all together so effortlessly. While you agonize over double-sided paper, I agonize over everything else that goes into making a card! LOL! Love the frog on that second one!
