Finding my crafting MoJo II

Here is a Butterfly Shape book that I made
the butterfly was cut with my Cricut Expression 2 (still waiting on the new Explore)

I cut the butterfly on heavy cardstock at 10"  x3 using the Picturesque cartridge.
I used DCWV Rockstar paper
I wish I could tell you the name of all  the embellishments but I was using what I had (which is a lot).
I then cut the butterflies in half and used my cinch to bind them.

Thanks for looking

Finding my Crafting MoJo

Okay, I know it has been such and looooonnnng time since my last post.

Lots has happened in the last 18 months or so.......
I got a promotion at work that now keeps me very very very busy. My oldest has moved out on his own, which means the room shuffling kept us all busy.  My youngest moved into his brothers old room, I moved the craft room from the den to his old bedroom and my Dear Husband finally got the den/man cave back.
We then had a major leak in the kitchen which forced a total kitchen remodel. My hubby, son and I did all the work ourselves but it took weeks and weeks. I now have a beautiful kitchen that is leak free.

All that being said somewhere in work stress, the moving, the packing, the sorting, the painting and the remodel my crafting mojo got lost.
But I think I finally found it again. I think it was buried under the deck that was falling apart and we had to replace.
Here is one of the rebirth of my MOJO projects with more to come since my Hubby got me The New Cricut Explore (it will be here on March 18th)

This is a Slice of Wedding Cake box that I did as an example for a friend of my Moms who is getting married. If she likes it I think I might be in real trouble as she will want 75 (Thankfully Mom will be here to help).
I used the Cricut E2 and Tags Bags Boxes and More II and cut the cake at 9", 7" and 5"
The butterflies are Martha Stewart punches and the dripping icing is the Martha Stewart drippy goo punch
I will be posting a couple more projects this weekend

Some New Projects

Wow, I feel like I am always behind on posting. I take the pics and think I will get that post tomorrow but then something else gets in the way.


There was a great turn out for Mom's "Senior Prom" the Evening in Paris theme went over great.

My hubby helped me redo my craft den (again) and I think I now have it where both Mom and can work and not feel like we are crawling over each other to get supplies

That being said. here are some pics of some of the projects I have done. I hope you like them.

1st up are some slider box cards I got the instructions from Split Coast Stampers

                                  Here are some beading/jewelry projects We have been doing.
             The pink set was given to a friend of Mom's grand daughter who is visiting from Australia
These you clip on your belt loops as jean jewelry

bracelet to match

                                                               Here is another Cowboy Hat.
     We have made quite a few of these they are super simple and fun. I used the 3D hats digi cart on CCR.
                                                      We finally got is sized to fit an adult head.

 And last but not least so butterflies made from paper flowers. I am sorry I can not remember who I got this idea from but it was on you tube. When I went back there were so many on there now that I could not find the original tutorial

Cowboy hat

I finally got the 3D Hats digital cart. Have been waiting on some of the CCR bugs to work themselves out.
Mom and I made the cowboy hat to give to a friend of hers.

It sort of fits a grown up head too.  Cut at the largest on a 12x12 is 10"

A little snug but it is a paper hat after all!!!!! Would be great for a child's party.  :)

It was a lot easier to assemble than I thought it would be.. we doubled up on the brim to make it a little sturdier and the "tabs" for the sides seem to be missing on the cut file so we made our own.
I think people will be getting hats from us for a while.

It was cut at 10"

Tea Set

Here is the latest project that Mom and I have been working on. I could not find the Tags Bags Boxes and More II in my area so I worked out a teacup and saucer using George and Accent Essentials and design studio ( I finally found it this week but don't like the teacup on it). I then used Sweet Tooth boxes with a hand cut spout for the teapot. The spoons are from From My Kitchen and the butterflies are a MS punch

Strawberry Festival Banner

One of Mom's "seniors groups"(they get together for a dance every week) has a car in the annual Strawberry Festival parade on Monday so we made a banner for the sides of the convertible. The pics are on the side of the minivan.
We used Hello Kitty, Cricut Classic Font, Tie the Knot and Old West.
