My Cricut Craft Room's Scrapbook Friday-- Using the colors Green, Blue, & Purple

It's Friday, Friday! Got to just love Friday!  Welcome back to my favorite day of the week!!
I'm still working on my secret project for my BFF.  I am almost done so just hang with me a few more weeks and then I will show you some projects with my new cartridges!!

Today I used a tag that I had made for a tag swap.  I used my Gypsy and the Gypsy Wanderings Cartridge image for the dragonfly. 
First I sprayed my tag with some Glimmer mist blue spray.  Then I stamped the image of small flowers in white.  I cut out my dragonfly and used stickles in the middle to make it sparkle.  I used some fibers from my stash (where the purple came in, although it is hard to see in my picture).  I stamped "Adorable" next to my picture.

Scrapping with Scrappy (formerly Scrappy EMT) Design Team post- Kids at Play

Hello it is Wednesday!! Yay! Middle of the week and just a couple of more days until the weekend!

Today's post is for Scrapping With Scrappy (formerly known as Scrappy EMT).

We were to make something with the theme Kids at Play.  So I went  with the teen at play.  I used the Rock Princess Cricut cartridge, a mini card  and sentiment from Stampin Up.  I cut "Andrea" out at 3" and used some stickles for her design on her shirt.  I really love this cartridge.  Actually  I love all the cartridges that I can cut people out of.  I stamped "Sparkle" on the inside of the card with Stampin Up purely pomegranate classic ink pad.  Thanks for coming by and please visit all the other great projects from the other design team members.  Start at


Organize this mess Blog Hop

Organize this Mess.....we look at our creative space and just wonder where we put that tape runner that we had just used two weeks ago, past Tuesday, of the 3rd of the month. We know that feeling oh soooooo well!!!! I pride myself in my organized "clutter"! Wouldn't it be wonderful to know where everything is and that there is a place for everything and everything in its place!!!!

That's what this hop is hoping to do! Trying to give helpful hints on storage, clever ways to keep things and just organize the mess!!!!!!

There is a very creative cluttered group to help us along this path. We hope you can find the time to organize and hop along with us while we "declutter" along the way!!!! Of course there will be some blog candy to add to "your" organized clutter if you comment along the way and don't miss a single blog!

If you just happened to be visiting me today, I am ever so glad, but don't want you to miss an organized stop. So please start at the beginning, at Nikki's. She's going to give us a jump start on cleaning this mess! If you have arrived from Lisa ~  then you are more organized than I am!

My Craft room was a complete mess!!  Before I knew about this blog hop I cleaned and organized my craft room, so I didn't take any before pictures.  My tip for today is that I used a book shelf, and old entertainment center that a friend of mine was giving away to organize my area.  I placed all  my stamps in the drawers in the entertainment center and in the side cabinet I put my magazines.  On the book shelf I put my cricut cartridges and my printer.  Here are the pictures of after:
