Welcome to INKING IT UP CRAZY and the Bitten By The LOVE BUG Blog Hop!
If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop,
you are right at the start:)
We would love to share a few projects and ideas with a valentine theme with you! Make sure to check out each member's blog. There will be some fun prizes along the way, AND there will be some AWESOME ideas!

Here is my project:

I got this fun purple mailbox at Micheals in their Valentine crafting section.
I decorated it with patterned paper, ribbon, hearts and some bling.
These mailboxes are so fun to personalize, your kids would LOVE to help.

This is a super quick and easy valentine gift that would be great for student valentine exchanges.
I used my gypsy and the doodlecharms cartridge. I welded two hearts together and made a cute butterfly shadow. I then punched 2 holes and inserted a pixie stix in the middle.
Both projects are very kid friendly and super fun:)

Exploring Cartridges: Tags Bags Boxes and More

Today Lisa and I are exploring the cartridge TAGS BAGS BOXES AND MORE! This is one of the must have cartridges:) It is even one of the FREE cartridges that is available with the Gypy.
Look what Lisa created using the TAGS BAGS BOXES AND MORE cartridge! So stinkin' cute:)
Here is what Lisa had to say about this cartridge:
My "baby" is turning 18 on the 24th of this month. I wanted to do something special and different for her. Besides the scrapbook, that's not finished yet! Each little piece of this cake will have alittle gift tucked inside. I really like the Tags, Bags, Boxes and more cartridge because of all the possibilities with this one. If you have this cartridge, you will always have a tag, bag or box or more!
Learn more about Lisa and her blog here:
Here is my project:

Like I said before this is a MUST HAVE CARTRIDGE. This is great for making little gift boxes and bags. I have made party invitations using the fun tags too. The boxes and bags are pretty simple to put together. This cartridge is great for party favors and little gift bags you give to friends and classmates.
*I used paper, chipboard and buttons from Cosmo Cricket

Exploring Cartridges: Preserves

Woot Woot! Another fun week of EXPLORING CARTRIDGES:) Today Celeste and I are exploring the PRESERVES Cartridge!

Look at this yummy card Celeste made using the Preserves cartridge!

Here is what Celeste had to say about this cartridge:
I was actually given this cartridge as a gift and thought I would use it once in a while. Once I looked through the booklet I fell in love!!! This cartridge has all sorts of card and label shapes as well as images to make tags as well as beautiful jar lids (if you do any canning, or even home decor)! The layers on the images are very easy to cut and put together, I really like it!!
Learn more about Celeste and her blog:
Here is the card I made using the Preserves Cartridge

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this cartridge. This cartridge is really easy to layer with. Very kid friendly and adorable. This cartridge would be awesome for cookbooks and recipe cards as well as making tags for homemade goodies you give to friends. I am so glad I have this cartridge!
*My Pink Stamper has the best stamps to go along with this cartridge too!
The stamp set is called: Fruit and Veggie Puns.

I have some EXCITING news:)

Last week I was so excited when
asked me to join her design team!
I have really admired Robyn for all
the time and talent that she shares with others.
She is the go to girl when it comes to learning about your cricut.
I am so excited to work with all the other talented ladies and make new friends!
Here are some cards that I made this week using MY PINK STAMPER stamps.
I hope you enjoy:)

*If you are new to my blog welcome:) I am glad you stopped by.


For todays FAMILY FRIDAY project, I decided to make my lil sis a bookmark. I bought her the Ramona Books for Christmas (I loved these books when I was little). We dug through my scraps and she picked out paper she liked. I cut out this cute butterfly from the STRAIGHT FROM THE NEST cricut cartridge (one of my favorites too). I laminated it using the YOURSTORY by Provo Craft. I wrote a little note on the back of the bookmark for her (so she thinks about her big sissy;)
I used this stamp on a project I made last week and got so many emails about where you can get it... I found it at Micheals this past fall in their dollar bins. Hope you can still find it.
Be sure to head on over to CRAZY ABOUT CRICUT and see what the other design team members made!

*If you have read the Ramona books, you MUST see the movie! Loved it! Great for the family too.
