There’s no such thing as Blue Unicorns, right?

There’s no such thing as Blue Unicorns, right?

We needed a boy birthday card.  SG  loves the unicorn.  “Make a blue unicorn for a boy”, she says.  Using scraps, it’s not girly..right?  Maybe that top stripe with the purple or the bright pink a little girlish but all and all, it looks pretty “boyish”.

I do really like that I can use the thin cuts where I can stamp, then cut out the image.  Makes life so much easier than fussy cutting.  Love that CTMH packages the thin cuts in a storage envelope, has them cut out for you already (not hooked together so you have to cut them apart), AND they include the magnetic sheet.  The price point for the stamps and matching dies is amazing compare to others and you don’t always get a great storage envelope or magnetic sheet!  Great deal for YOU!  With this stamp set, you can cut out as many unicorns as your heart desires and stamp them in whatever color scheme you want.  Here are some of the die and stamp sets so you can check out what a great deal you get:

I laid out the stripes of paper in a diagonal pattern across the base white paper, 4″x 5.25″.  After getting one done, I decided to mat it on a piece of black cardstock, an 1/8th of a inch larger.  It make the top panel stand out.  3D foam tape the unicorn and banner.  Distress banner in matching Sapphire ink.

Happy Birthday Little Dreamer

Happy Birthday Little Dreamer

I’m working on using my scraps up and you know, I’m always have those sheets of cards left in the paper pack if I’m not doing pocket scrapbooking.  I used two of them to make this card and a card design I got from Unity Stamps.  The gold glitter paper and transparency are from my shaker card party.  =)

  • You will need to cut your card base from a larger piece of cardstock because the score/fold is on the 4.25″ side at the 5.5″.
  • Trim down one of the 4″x6″ cards to 4″x5.25″ and put the front of the card.
  • Then cut 1 1/2″ from the bottom of the card, set aside to use later, and leave 1 1/2″ from the top of the card.

 

  • Glue the transparency – cut to 4.25″ x 5.5″and glue under the top part of the card.
  • Glue the bottom 1 1/2″ piece that you saved and glue on the bottom of the transparency.
  • Take the striped card that’s 3″x4″ and put in the center of the card, over the transparency and overlapping the top and bottom of the card.   You’ll be able to see the transparency on the sides of the card.

  • Use two strips of gold glitter paper.
  • Stamp and cut out both the Unicorn and the banner.
  • Distress the banner with Thistle Ink.
  • Add googly eyes.

  • Stamp a unicorn on the inside of the card, underneath the panel so it does not show (unless you want it to).
  • Stamp a sentiment on the inside.
  • Add googly eye.
  • Use the Gold and Clear Shimmer Brushes on the unicorns (I did gold on the body and clear on the mane, tail, horn, and nose).

The Little Dream Paper is a great deal of fun.  The colors are lively and so wonderful to play with after this dreary, crazy spring we’ve been having. The Little Dreamer Cardmaking unicorn stamp set has these dies to match so no fussy cutting = LOVE!!  Same for the Little Dream Scrapbooking rainbow set.  These makes your life easier.

Together

Together

This great card is from another guest artist and team member, Laurie L!  “Together” is the sentiment from the May Stamp of the Month “Live Love Laugh” S1705.  It’s used together with this the Flower Marker Cricut collection and the Whimsy Fundamental Collection.  Brilliant combination.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Randomly stamp the flowers and leaves from the stamp set on the Sweet Leaf cardstock.  Mount this and a piece of the Sweet Leaf on Thistle.  Cut a banner (pg 3)  and the flower (pg 14) from Flower Market.  Emboss “together” on the banner and use thin 3D foam tape to mount the banner.

 

Assemble the pieces of the flower and mount on the banner. Use a 3D foam tape under the flower to provide additional stability.

 

Here’s a great YouTube video on additional uses of the cartridge.  This is really a great cartridge collection.  Be sure to add it to your collection and get 2 entries into the Great Cricut Giveaway and 4 of the workshops offered on my class page for FREE!

Fancy This with Live Beautfully

Fancy This with Live Beautifully

Here’s the 3rd of 9 layouts with the scrapbooking workshop that you can get free with a $25.00  purchase of the workshop supplies.  See supply lists here.  This is a bright, fun layout using the My Girl Compliments, where the title “Fancy” comes from:

On the black paper, the colors of these compliments really pop.  Creating a few clusters with the different stickers to create dimension along with a few heart cut with our heart thin cuts from scraps.  I combined both the gold and silver glitter paper

Using scraps to cut the hearts out is another part of my mission this month of using my scraps up.  The hearts really add to the layout and the clusters.

 

You can see the hearts, both the green ombre paper and the gold glitter paper .  They make a foundation for the title and the rest of the cluster.  I did add some Pearl Platinum Stickles to add a little extra dimension.  Put 3D foam tape (thin) under “Fancy”.  I’m going to add another banner that says “that” just off the “Fancy” title.

This layout shows the versatility of the Live Beautifully paper in that it does not “need” to be a formal event.   This be a great layout for a little girl playing dress up or a in a uniform of some sort.  SG in her new karate uniform,  now a yellow belt, will work well with this.

Use the zip strip to create the borders across the pictures.  Great way to use the scraps and dress up the pictures.

This cluster I love. SG does make my heart shine. I do so enjoy watching her work hard and overcome the tough challenges in life.  Testing for her yellow belt was a challenge and she did it.

Love the Little Moments

Love the Little Moments

Here’s a card with the Stamp of the Month S1705 Live Love Laugh.  This one is done by a guest artist Jennifer P from my swap group.  This shows how you can color the card and have it look great for those who are not color-ers.   “Love” can be such a useful word when pair with different sentiments.  This sentiment is from the Cricut Cartridge Flower Market Collection and one of my favorite stamp sets.

Because the stamp set words are so large, it takes up most of the space on the card.  Simple is best.   The sentiments from Flower Market has these simple sayings that are done with a combination of 2 fonts, which I really like.  I don’t know if you can really see it for the picture from Flower Market. It’s the top set in the upper left corner.

See how perfect the sentiment goes with “love”.  It’s great to mix and match different stamp sets you have.
