I Love Kits!

I've always been a big fan of kits. They are great for crafting on the go, just grab a kit and a few extra needed materials and you're ready for a night out getting crafty!
I decided to use a kit I got a little while back, a Close to My Heart kit or Workshop on the Go called Typeset. It coordinates with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, that you all know I love!
The kit comes with enough papers to do two double page layouts and some extra projects. I choose to attempt the 'extra' projects. In this kit it is cards. Here are the first two!
I used some materials I already had like buttons, card stock base, and ink.
On this one I used some Dollartree ribbon and the Square Lattice embossing folder to make it a little different and more Me!


Now it's your turn to get out one of your kits or use one if those digital kits you've purchased to get entered into this weeks challenge. Here's the link with all the details: HIMCR #86 - Use a Kit!


Thanks so much for stopping by!

I Love Scraps!

Happy Valentines Day! 
 
I hope everyone is having a good one! I'm missing my sweetheart even though we don't usually do much for valentines. It's all about the kiddos!


This weeks challenge is Super Scraps! There is still time to get entered into this weeks challenge and giveaway, a $25 gift certificate to Scrapbookpal.com. I didn't have a lot of time to get out my scraps this week's because this little baby decided to break down!


 
She's all fixed and thanks to a mechanic, who does some work from his home, in my Ward ( that's Mormon jargon for what some might call a congregation) she wasn't down for too long. We should have charged money to see me dropping the kids off at school in my husband's Corolla! It was like the clown car at the circus!

I did manage to find a few minutes today, about thirty, to get my scrap bins out and make a card.

Here's what I came up with:

All die cuts were already cut out!
Even the owl!

Recipe:
Card Base: SU Really Rust 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front: Confetti Cream 4" X 5 1/4"
Other Cardstock / Paper: SU Designer Series Apple Cider
Ink: really rust, white
Stamps: PTI Mega Mixed Messages
Accessories: Circut & cartridge, Cuttlebug & Square Lattice and Floral Screen embossing folder, SU Dusty Durango ribbon

100 Days of School!

Yesterday was my kid's 100th Day of School this year! To celebrate we made these posters for them to dispaly in their class. My little guys are so different! One likes to be sorted and organized and the other likes to be random! I love that they are so individualized even though they are less than 11 months apart!


 
 
We used a BUNCH of punches. 'Bunches of Punches!'
Most of which are EK Success.

We used the American Alphabet on the Cricut Expression 2 to cut out the 100's!


Thanks so much for checking in today!

I have some winners to post and plan on doing that tonight!

I'm so behind from being sick last week and my life being out of sorts right now. Just when I seem to be getting a routine down something else happens.
 
I appreciate all of you so much!
