A new dress.. and I bought myself a present!

I made this little dress the other night. I’ve always wanted to make a dress with little gathers on the side like this. I love it! It was kind of a pain to figure out at first since I didn’t use a pattern. I think I will make my girls matching Easter sets using the gathering look.. it’s so cute!



Annnnnnd… I got me a new present! A Gypsy I got mine from for a GREAT price though! $87.00! Yeah, buddy! I can’t wait for it to get here! I’m sad I can’t use my SVG’s with it.. but, I promised myself to start using my cartridges more so this will help with that! The other day when I made my Valentine Boxes and had to switch cartridges a million times is when I really decided I needed one. Plus, it’s SO cold in my craft area (dang drafty door!) that it will be nice to sit by a fire and plan out my attack before going into the war, LOL!

Anyhow… I finished my very first project for SVG Cuts! I love it.. and I hope you all do too! I can’t wait for it to be on their blog (should be tomorrow!) So fun! I have another Valentines project for them in the works that I will get to finish this weekend! It’s super cute and the kiddos will love to help! (well, with both projects, really!)

Also, please, please ‘like’ my page on Facebook and send your crafty friends! When I get to 200 fans I will be giving away a giftcard to!

Happy crafting!

Who me?… Little ol’ ME?

As many of you know I am pretty new to using the Cricut and paper crafting.. I happen to post this little Halloween treat bag on SVG Cuts Facebook wall.. and was told about the contest on THE MESSAGE BOARD so I entered totally not expecting anything at all, but was happy to share because I was so proud that I actually made something that cool from sheets of paper! Who knew? Well, guess what?


Yeah, baby!! I won me a totally spiffy  $10.00 giftcard to and I am planning on getting this set for sure, HOW CUTE ARE THESE? Not sure what else… I am actually waiting for the next contest to be posted to see if I need to get any new SVG’s ;) Next time I will make the project with all or pretty much all SVG’s from their collections. I had no idea about any contests, etc. when I made those bags and used some cartridges. Just the bag and the ‘fanned’ circle are from them.

So yeah, join the community and enter the next contest! The talent over there is pretty awesome! If anything else, get inspired! It’s a little slow but everyone there is super sweet.. especially the owners, Mary and Leo! And of course, they have some of the cuuutest SVG’s around!
