Love is in the Air!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
I can not believe we are already thinking about
"Valentines Day",
but it's right around the corner!
So what better thing to do on a rainy droopy weekend than
to create a pretty card.

Lettering, silhouette and large heart were cut from 
"Victorian Romance" Cricut cartridge .
Small doily heart was cut from "Close to my Heart" Cricut cartridge and
for the banner and flowers I used paper scraps I had laying
around in the stamp room.
I have to admit, I'm having a hart time thowring 
paper scraps away, so I'm always happy if I can use them 
in a project.

Also a few days ago I struck gold at work!
One of our patrons was cleaning house and
decided to donated their old books and magazines
to our Library.
Items we do not keep go into book sale, 
free item pin or sometimes just into recycling.
So you can imagine how happy I was when
this old "Sears, Roebuck Catalog"
was marked for discharge.
I was literally drooling and bouncing up and down at the same time!
This beauty was mine!
... the possibilities!
I think I will make some copes of the pages and
try my hands on image transfer!

Thanks for stopping in!
Hope you all have a great week!


  1. Ohhhhh, those images in the catalogue are going to be perfect! Pinterest has some good ideas for transfering images...

    Your card is so pretty! I have a cricut that has been turned on twice! A friend was over and showed me how to gert it is several years later and i want to try's on my bucket list for 2013...learn to use my cricut!!! teehee

    I have pinned a bunch of tutorials and just need to take a weekend and play with the machine and the tutorials...I wish there were places where you could sign up for sessions!

    1. Thanks for stopping in, Mo!
      I have a kind of Love/Hate relationship with my Cricut. Love it for all the need things it does and you can do with it.
      Hate because it takes me me forever to figure out the right size to cut. Every cartridge cuts different.
      I learned over the years to start out with scrap paper and this is my trick, I set the cutting size to 2 inches on my first cut. This way I don't wast good paper and I can figure out if I need to go bigger or smaller on my next cut.
      I also make notes on every card i made with the Cricut for future references.
      Hope this helps a little, believe me it is tons fun and will get easier the more you use your machine!

      But you are right, hands on lessons would be to cool!

  2. Thanks for popping in and commenting on my blog post. Love your beautiful card. Have a great week.
