I wanted to make a life-sized Paper Doll but 6" felt like the right size. It was fun to work with the bigger pieces, I tried to cut out letters for the water bottle and shirt, but after many, many attempts the paper ripped and the lettering was too delicate to remove, so I ended up having to write on the water bottle- I have the worlds worst handwriting... but since I will be the only looking at it, I guess it is OK. Now, the question is... what will I do with her...suggestions? I was thinking maybe laminating her and using it as a bookmark ... but what are your thoughts?

I own close to 60+ Cricut cartridges, and I play with only a handful of them! Shame on me! But, my very favorites are the Paper Doll cartridges. For some reason, making these little dolls come to life is theaputic...well, kind of!
I have a good friend moving to Washington State, so I thought I would make her a "Good Luck" card. Using EDPD, I thought this doll fit best...Enjoy!

Another cute Bag Topper!! So easy to make! Used CAC for the owl-cut at 3"- these are fun to make! Enjoy! This one is for my Mother!!!

Made a Candy Bag Topper!! I really think these are the easiest things to make, and it looks like lot of time was spent on it...when, really- you get a cello bag, stuff it with goodies, and done! EASY! I made the Topper to go with the card I made for my sister, staying with the "summer-time" beach theme!
I used the Birthday Cuttlebug folder, MS loop punch, LAB for the Lifeguard chair and some ribbon! EASY!!
Sorry for the picture quality, my hubby has the camera, so I had to use my phone-camera...
Thanks for looking!

It's been ahwile since I have posted anything...or created anything! UGH! Nothing worse than going to someones blog and seeing the same thing every single day!! Makes me want to delete the blog!!! But... I guess sometimes, life gets busy and some things have to wait! Well, wait no more... My sister's birthday is coming up, and I thought I would make her a card and a few "home-made" items! Her birthday is July 31st! I thought since is falls right in the middle of Summer, I needed to make a "Summery"-like card...
I used Life's a Beach for the Sand castle and Everyday Paper dolls for the Beach girl! It was fun to make. I couldn't find the camera, so my Iphone will have to do... I will be sharing more "birthday" projects this week, so I can get them mailed! Thanks for looking!!!
