You Make My Heart Soar - Cricut® Explore Air

Hello my lovelies!

Wow! Friday already. 

Today I would like to share with you another little card that I created using the Cricut® Explore Air.

Items needed...

Digital die images: Create a Critter Heart (#M3862D) - Cricut®
Card stock: aqua, black, bright pink, white
Glitter card stock: white iridescent
Gems: clear

The Create a Critter cartridges are some of my favourites. They are so cute and are suitable for adults or children. They mix and match really well too. Don't forget, you don't have to buy the whole cartridge, you can purchase individual images.

The little cloud sentiment is one that I designed for a couple of projects in the January 2015 issue of Crafts Beautiful. The illustrations are still available for you download, print and colour. They feature a heart shaped balloon, clouds, flying heart and sentiments. Click here to take you to the download page. You will need to register, but it is quick, easy and free!

I might post the projects from that issue at a later date.

Thank you for stopping by! TTFN! xxx

Wild About U - Cricut® Explore Air

Afternoon peeps!

I've been having a play with my Explore Air and have designed three cute little cards perfect for Valentine's Day or if you just want to tell someone that you love them - awww!

In this post I would like to share the first card with you. This one features a cute little monkey holding a heart...

Items needed...

Digital die images: Create a Critter 2 - Monkey (#M3B30F), Lion (#M3A503) - Cricut®
Vinyl: Midnight - Cricut®
Card stock: bright pink, brown, tan
Gems: bright pink

I love doing wording or lettering with the vinyl as it gives such a crisp, clean edge and you don't have to worry about apply adhesive to fiddly areas. Cricut® also do transfer paper on a roll, so that you can remove the vinyl from the backing sheet and place it exactly where you want it without altering the position of the vinyl elements.

I do hope you like my cute little monkey. I'll be back with another adorable little card soon. Thank you for popping in! xx

Be Happy

Hello my lovelies!

As I promised yesterday, I'm back with another make and this one is CAS with a bright, cheery splash of colour...

Items needed...

Dies: Craft Asylum Happiness Phrases (660804); Craft Asylum Sunny Flower ( 660807) - Sizzix
Embossing folder: Layered Scallops - Echo Park
Card stock: aqua, bright pink, lime, white, yellow

The flower dies are so cute, there are four in the pack so you can mix and match to your heart's desire!

I got a collection of Craft Asylum dies from my mum and dad-in-law for Christmas, so I've been itching to have a play.

This is such a bright and cheery card that you can't help but smile. I made it yesterday and it was such a dull, dark, rainy day that this added that little bit of sunshine!

I do hope you like my little make and thank you for stopping by!

Take care for now, ta ta! x
