Sorry I haven't posted in ages

It's been a bit hectic at home, but decided I better post some more layouts - or I'll never get it done!!!!  I have now made a double page layout with each and every Cricut Lite cartridge.  It was a lot of fun and I learned so much about my expression as I tried most of the function keys.

Well, without further ado - here are some layouts...

The first is a layout using the "Billionaire" cart.  There's a story behind this one - and I will be using pics of my hubby and I.  We were out of town at a Jimmy Buffett concert and I wanted to dance and he didn't.  It's now become a little joke!!!

My next layout is from the Slumber Party Cart.  My youngest daughter danced o a dance team for years and we used to have the whole team over all the time - so, tons of slumber party pics. 

My third layout is from the Splish Splash Cart - I just love this layout.  Pretty sure it's my fav!!!

Next layout is from the Lovely Floral cart.  I really like this cart.  And, while it took me a few cuts to get the background printed paper to the right size - it was worth the effort.  The scroll design on the right side layout will go over the pics (if that makes sense) and will be adhered down when pics are added.

I'm really pleased with the way the next layout turned out.  The only thing I haven't done is stamped in the litle faces with my Peachy Keen stamps.  This layout is in honor of my three girls and will use pics from after my youngest, Kelly was born.

And, the final layout for tonight is from the Block Party cart.  I have to be honest, this was probably my least favorite to work with.  The pieces were small and I couldn't figure out where some of them went.  Next time I will cut larger than 3 inches.  The cart has some great images, just wish PC had a larger pic of the images.

Hope you all enjoyed my layouts.  Nine layouts posted - 15 to go!!!  I will take pics of the rest and post soon.  I used DCWV, Core'Dinations and Bazzill cardstock for the majority of the layouts.  Thanks so much for he visit and checking out my projects.  Tisha

Cricut Lite Layouts

It's been a while since I've posted.  Sometimes life does seem to get in the way of fun.  But, I have been busy creating cards and layouts using my Expression!!!!  I have 10 double page layouts done using the Lite Cartridges.  I was going to go alphabetically but decided to look through them all and choose one that inspired me at that moment.  I will try and get all of them posted today, but it my take me a few days. 

The first double page layout I did was using "Bloom", and aside from the little birdie (Cherry Limeade) everything was from Bloom.  This was a fun layout:).  I plan on putting a picture of each of my kiddies - the green is for my son, Patrick:)

For the second layout I used "Botanical".  I used the 3rd card design for the title - and flipped it for the right side of the layout.  Then I used a Martha Stewart punch for a small border to cover up the score lines.  I can't remember what cart I used for the - Love You, but the 4 ever is  from Botanicals.  I plan I putting pics of my sweet hubby and I.

The third layout was made using "Cherry Limeade".  I absolutely love this cart and pretty much stuck with the colors used on the tri fold card.  I have used the font in this cart in most all of the Lite layouts I've finished - just love it:).  Hmmm, did I by chance tell you how much I love this cart?:)

All cardstock and paper used - DCWV, Co-ordinations and Bazzill.

I think I'll only post these three layouts as my laptop is not cooperating.  Hope you enjoy...

Well, here is my first post on my new blog.  Right now my hubby, Rick, my daughter, Kristen and I are in Myrtle Beach.  Rick had business in Charleston, SC so Kristen and I had an incredible 5 days exploring Charleston and we definitely want to go back!!!!  Charleston is beautiful!!! After leaving Myrtle Beach - in a few hours -  we're headed up to New Bern, NC for a wedding.  Then we're driving up the coast to New York to visit my family.  Of course, we've taken a ton of pictures and can't wait to start scrapbooking.

Also, wanted to share my first ever card using my Expression.  My Aunt Ruthie's birthday was April 3rd - so I made her a cupcake card.  I also made my hubby his birthday card (March 31st) but forgot to take a pic.  He loved his card and said it was his all time favorite because I made it!!!  So, you guessed it - I will be making all of my cards now!

And, here is the inside of the card.  My Aunt just loved her card:)  It was simple and easy, but thought it was a fun start to cardmaking.
