Time for a Project

Well if anything can go wrong, it does for me lol.We got home from the best vacation in the Smoky Mountains and I got everything unpacked and washed up the next day.  Late that afternoon, I doubled over in the worse pain ever.  I was up the entire night with severe pain, but not issues.  The next day I slept in between burst of pain .  By the 3rd day I knew something major was going on.  Nothing in my stomach but was so sick.  That night my hubby took me to the hospital and they did lots of tests and gave me an iv because of course I was dehydrated.  They said I had a bad virus.  Well this was the weekend so I couldn't back to Dr till Monday.  He said there are so many strains of viruses this year and I just happen to get a bad one.  I am in my 9th day and I think I might make it, but so weak.  Now you know why I was away longer than I said, and will be for a few more days till I can get over this nasty stuff!!!
I have a layout to share with you using SVG files from PPBN Designs.  This is the Easter Fun kit.  She has gone to membership, but let me tell you what you get for the membership.  For $10 a month, you get 30 single images, 15 scrapbook kits and 4 Exclusives sets not available to the public and a huge discount on anything in her store.  If you have any questions, please ask me.  I don't work for her, but love her scrapbook pages!  Click on the name above and it will take you there.  She is the only one who makes scrapbook kits like this!!!!  Tell her I sent you!  See you next week when I can stay up longer than 2 hours.

Sorry for the long time away....

Hello Friends!
Seems like forever I have posted on the blog and when I looked at the last post, it has been!  I decided to take some time away from daily crafting and enjoy the summer.  That doesn't mean my machines were idle at all!!!  Hubby and I have been doing lots of traveling and enjoying the freedom of the beautiful summer weather we have been having which I will hate to see go away.  We are leaving on another trip today and might be the last one till December when we go to Disney!  I will be back next week with some posts and some shares.  Hope you have had the best summer ever!!!

Time to add some dimension to your projects!

Today I am sharing another fun project using the Cricut Explore and also I am using the Cuttlebug. It is fun to add some dimension to your scrap pages or cards using this fun machine!  Did you know that you could use other dies and folders out on the market with your Cuttlebug?  A friend of Exploring Cricut and More, Ben Adler has shared some valuable information with us and also has a pdf print out for you too!  I will be giving you all the information after I share this card I made today.  Monday was my baby granddaughters 6th birthday and of course, both my precious granddaughters are Princesses to us.  I used the Princess Castle card file from SVG Cuts Box cards set.  This was a quick and easy card.  Now the bad thing was, I forgot to take a picture of her card, so I made another one lol. 
I like adding dimension so I used my Cuttlebug and as you can see I am using the original one!
I did the pieces in a chevron zig zag pattern and then I inked the edges with a darker color.
This is the folder I used and it is a Sizzix from Stampin Up so that you can see what I used.
This is the finished card adding a little bling for some added decoration.  Ben has shared this wonderful and detailed sandwich technique by going to  He has step by step with photos to show you.  He has also sent me the PDF to print out  Big shout out and thanks for sharing with us today!!!

Layout Tuesday

  Hello and welcome. Back and rested up from another little mini adventure. This time we didn't stray too far from home, but still had a good time. We went back to my hometown in Ohio for a reunion and then went to Cleveland and enjoyed the sites. My favorite was the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Getting ready to get those pictures printed soon so there will be layout coming. We also visited a little in Amish country and then back to my hometown again for another visit with family and some shopping at the outlet mall. We might do another mini adventure next month close to home, but undecided at this time.
  Now for the layout for Layout Tuesday. This week my projects will be made with the Cricut Explore.  For this layout, I used files from PPBN Designs called Ticket to Ride.  If you are a scrap booker like me, you will love all her wonderful designs.  This is a club and when you join you will get images and scrap book page kits you cut.  Well worth the small amount you pay monthly, plus you can purchase all her past layouts at a reduced rate!!!  Click the link above and check it out.  For this layout, I used CTMH pattern papers, cardstock, and ink.  Love how this turned out!!!  Join me later this week for another project and I will be using another great tool besides my Cricut Explore and a friend of mine is sharing some valuable information for you too!

Time for a Pool Party!

Hello! Today I am sharing another layout using the Silhouette Cameo and PPBN Designs files. As I have said many times, I love these files because they make it so easy to create great pages.  The background paper is some older Bo Bunny in my stash.  I have been trying to use up some of my thousands of papers!  Haven't made a dent yet lol.  I will be gone for a little while getting ready for a yard sale (yuck!) and a trip coming up.  Have a fabulous weekend and see you soon!
