I finally managed to sit down and pair Stampin'Up!'s My Digital Studio with my Cricut Explore Machine! Love the results! I used the Flower Patch digital download to create an iron on design for a T-Shirt. If you would like to see how I made this happen, there is a very BASIC walk thru video posted  Here I'm not set up very well to do vidoes but you should be able to get the gist. Hope this helps you. ;)

Rock your Creativity with Fun Folds or 3D Projects

This is my first blog hop, So exiting! I chose to do a 3D project. This is a fun creation I found on Sam Donald's blog, I just love her creations. Be sure to check out her blog Here

This is a mini milk carton and carrier. Isn't it just cute??  I used Daffodil Delight card stock for the main color and then added some Designer Series Paper from the Moonlight paper stack. I used one of the new hostess sets called Hello Love. I just love the little bird in this set! I punched out the label using the Curly label punch, stamped the sun on it in crushed curry ink, then stamped the sentiment in Island Indigo ink. Added the little bird with demensionals to make him pop! I punched a handle out using the Word Window punch then I used White seam binding ribbon to finish off the handle. I used a small strip of DSP  over the top of each carton and stapled them close. (after adding some yummy treats of course) Really happy with the way this came out. (Thank You Sam for your wonderful Blog and all the hard work you put into it). 
Thank you also for the VC Blog Hop and giving me the chance to be a part of this fun group!

Blooming Birthday Card

Recipe: Flower Patch stamp set, cherry cobbler, whisper white card stock, cherry cobbler, crushed curry, pink pirouette, garden green, pear pizzazz, eggplant envy inks. Dimensionals, and gems.

Burger Box

I would like to start off by saying I LOVE MY CRICUT EXPLORE!! That is a little box I made from a template that I uploaded into design space and cleaned up then cut with my Explore!!
I used pink pirouette card stock from Stampin'Up!, silver ribbon (also from Stampin'Up! ) along with the Work of Art stamp set for the sentiment and background. Jolee's stickers for embellishments. Such a cute little treat box. And because I used my Explore I can easily change the size of the box to suit my needs!!

One Sheet stamping.

I started with one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 whisper white card stock. Using the Flower Patch stamp set I randomly stamped images from the set to fill up the page. Once I was happy with it I cut the sheet in half then into 2 in x 5 1/2 in strips. It gave me 8 strips this way. 

I then cut card bases in matching colors. I used one sheet of four colors to give me 8 card bases.The colors I used were, wisteria wonder, island indigo, melon mambo, and pink pirouette. Glued my strips to the bases. Stamped and cut a large flower from the same set also in each of the same four colors. I used demensionals to pop the flowers up....added a sentiment again from the same set. 

By doing this I have a nice set of 8 cards that I can package as a gift of cards for someone. Thanks for reading. Please leave a comment ;)
