Cup Cake Birthday Card

I made this cute cup cake shaped card for the challenge at Birthday Sundaes. I used the Elmo's Party cartridge. This is my 2nd post with this cartridge. This a cartridge everyone should have in their collection. It is so versatile and fun you can create for kids or adults. Hope you like it.

I used Craft Card Stock for my card base

The cupcake is cut @ 4.09 (gypsy)
 flipped and welded to make the card.

Toilet Paper Roll Album

Toilet Paper Roll Albums are all over the Internet and I wanted to try it. I think it turned out cute being that it is my 1st one. I actually used Paper Towel Rolls and cut them down to 5.5 inches. Most toilet paper rolls are about 4 inches. I used my old scraps, stickers and ribbon. The only cartridge I used was TBBM for the tags.  I finally purchased a Bind It All but decided one new thing at a time. My next album I will attempt to use my Bind It All instead of the rings.  I really enjoyed making this album definitely more to come.
K&Company adhesive chipboard stickers really work great
[It's best to use a hot glue gun for extra support]

Jacob's Weekend

Hi Cricutjunkies,
Jacob and I did very little crafting this weekend. It was such a nice weekend we decided to do a little gardening. Jacob is very handy with garden tools...I thought he was showing off for the girls but he really brought is "A" game. I decided to leave clip on Koala inside (just to be safe) because we have had several Coyote siteings. How could I tell Chole that Koala was eaten by a Coyote from the Suburbs of Chino Hills, CA.
"The Hot Scrap Assistant"
I offered him a shirt but he refused.  

Jacob is a great assistant, he dug all the holes and even
 gave me some much needed  gardening tips.
I was impressed with his gardening skills.

I tried to convince him to lose the flower Lei but he said NO....
It reminds him of Frankie.

Much Needed - JAVA BREAK 
Showing off his MUSCLES

Jacob lifted the bags of bark with one hand 
Done At Last
 Is he tanning or napping?

Stay tuned for our next adventure. Who knows we
may even get some crafting done along the way.

Thinking Of You Card

Hi, Cricutjunkies,
This card was made with the Wildcard Cartridge. I have not used this cart in a while and had forgotten that this was my favorite cart at one time. {until the next cartridge came along}. I really like this cartridge because of the envelope feature. Each card has a coordinating envelope or you can mix and match. The envelope and card are on page 33. Tweety bird is on page 47. Hope you find a little inspiration.
Cart: Wildcards
Card and envelope cut at 6"
{used fit to page}
Tweety cut at 3.0
Ribbon - Doodlebug Design
Stamp - Michael's
Versamark stamp pad
I cut the envelope liner, edge of the card and Tweety
from my stash.

Envelope is called Argyle
It is really simple but looks elegant.

I am entering this card in the Wildcard challenge @

Happy Crafting!!!! Traci
