Luv Bugs Card

I created this card a couple days ago using the Potpourri Basket Cartridge and the Plantin School Book Cartridge.

Cricit Heads made with Potpourri Basket

Fonts made by Plantin SchoolBook

Heart made with Potpourri Basket

I also used Stickles for the Bugs Eyes

And, I have a temporary solution for adhesive with pics below:

Instructions:  Take normal 8 1/2 X 11 and cut in two to get card.  Using the Scor-Pal tool I did a gatefold with the card.  On the outside I cut our names in 1 inch size using Plantin Schoolbook.  Same size was used for inside lettering.

On the inside, I cut the Cricut heads at 2 inches.  The Heart was cut at 4 inches.  Voila!

No Adhesive!!!!

I’m out of adhesive with the tape dispenser I use for scraping/card making, so I may not get to make a card this weekend.  I need to run out to the craft store and get some temporary adhesive.  This is starting to be a big expense and seems like I am running out all the time for adhesive!

So, with that in mind, I will be ordering the ATG 714 Tape Gun and Tape by 3M.  I am just trying to find a great price online (without going to EBAY).

My shopping experience last night!

I have to tell you all, that I had the best experience shopping at a local craft store in Greensboro, NC.  The place is called THE STAMPING AND SCRAPBOOKING ROOM.  One of the owners, Betty, is a “HOOT”.  She was very friendly, gave great customer service, and showed my wife and I around the place.  She even took the time to explain some things to us, and showed us some things we would never have thought of using before.  They are located at

2806 Randleman Rd, Greensboro, NC 27406

(336) 389-9539
(336) 389-9538

While there, we bought a Scor-Pal, and the Allegro Cuttlebug A2 Embossing Folder.  If you are looking for something, she has it.  If she doesn’t have it, she can order it for you!  WOW!  Great customer service!  I’m sure you will come out with a smile on your face, and will return time and time again.

By the way, I will be using both to make a card this weekend, and I will post the project as soon as I am done with pictures.  Stop back soon!

OK..I need to post!

I’ll be working on a card or two, and putting them up this weekend.  Sorry for the delay in posts.  Stop back soon!

Happy New Year!

OK.  I know I am late with this post (by one day), and my intention is to not be late with posting new things on this blog this year.  I’m off to a great start.  LOL.

Anyway,  Happy New Year!  This year I hope to share many projects with you.  My goal that I have set this year is to give you what you need to “scrap lift” the project by giving you things such as sizes, cartridges used, paper used, punches, etc.

Of course all comments are much appreciated and any advice you would like to give me to maybe enhance my projects would be greatly appreciated.  Remember, all ideas are welcome!  You’ll never know, you just may see YOUR idea posted here as a project.

I also hope to get a few guests this year to share their projects with you.  I have some people in mind, and will be sending them an email soon to see if they would like to be a guest designer for a posting in 2010.

Also this year, I am going to try to have some giveaways!  Yes, BLOG CANDY!  You may just be a lucky winner.  Make sure you check the blog often, and tell your friends about it too.

Since buying our cricut machine, and just recently our cuttlebug, I have seen many other blogs/message boards/etc and have been inspired.  I hope to share some of those inspirations, and any time I scraplift a project I will give you 100% credit!  I do believe giving credit where credit is due is the right way to go.

Have fun.  Enjoy the blog!  And also, please visit all my wonderful friends blogs too.  There are a bunch of them listed in my blogroll.  I will have many more to come in 2010 too!  Speaking of that, when I add a new blog to the list it will have something letting you know it’s new for a short period.  Something like this “Sues Blog (NEW LINK!!!)”.  I will keep this as a new link for approximately one to two weeks so you can tell it’s new.  After that, I will remove the (NEW LINK!!!) part from the listing.

Tell your friends about my blog!  Visit often!  You’ll never know what may appear on my postings.  But I guarantee you will enjoy it!

Thanks for stopping by!


Merry Christmas!

Hi Everyone! Bev and I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas! We look forward to a great 2010 with you all!
