Finally-a video! Episode 1-Walk in my garden and Plantin school book carts


I WILL get better-but here is my first go-I have used my Gypsy: Walk in my garden and Plantin schoolbook cricut carts-I forgot I was filming it upside down! Now that I have figured out a way to get the videos on my blog - I can spend more time figuring out how to film and show you more details! I finally deleted the program that I paid $100. for and downloaded a free one! If only someone had told me that first!! O well-maybe sometime I will go back and try the other again...we will see! Please feel free to tell me if there is something that would make the video better - besides the obvious -to show more about the actual cricut cutting and putting the card together-so I can plan my next one out better! Thanks for taking the time to watch! Have a great day!

Create a Critter AGAIN!! It is addictive!!




I know... you are probably tired of seeing my Create a Critter Cards-but I have more!!! I just cant seem to get enough of them! The first one is my fav--isn't this little froggette just so adorable!!! And those buggy eyes--are just too fun! The next one is these little dino's-awe!!!
The third one today is made with a birdie chipboard-so TWEET! I would love to know which is your fav! Have a great Saturday!

Create A Critter & one a day is back!!!!


Ok--well, I HAD a video all finished for you all--but it wouldn't download into blogger-and then it wouldn't come up-and the program was making my computer SO slow--that I have decided to go back to just posting my pics up here--I can't even tell you how many many hours I have wasted in this last week-trying to figure that program out--and I just don't have that much extra time!! I will maybe try it another time, but for now, this is what you are stuck with!! sorry! I had even found the cutest little tune to go with the video for this card--but of course I couldn't get it to download into the program! : (
I made this little horsie/cowboy themed card with Create a Critter--so many cute images can be made with this cart!!

On another note--I have to tell you some super exciting news!!! Remember last May when Squigglelfy did The one a day in May? Well, for those of you who missed out--you do NOT want to miss out again!!! It is only $30. and you get a new downloadable image EVERY day in May!! It is like Christmas every morning - going and opening up the download to see what image you got that day!!! I really looked forward to it every morning last year!!! I am going to sign up for mine--how abut you?

I am SO discouraged!!!



Ok-well I have been MIA for several days, and I have been trying to figure out how in the world to edit a video I made!!! I even took my computer down to the computer place in town, as I could not get my Movie Maker to work with my new camcorder!! After downloading a gazillion different codecs-still no luck. So last night, we went out and bought Adobe Premiere Elements--figuring that then everything would work fine--NOPE!!! Now my computer is so slow, and I can't figure out how to work this Premiere thing at all--no real instructions on how to do what whatsoever!! So, $115. later--I give up on the video!!!(and I was soooo excited abut it--big let down!) Anyways, so I will just show you the card I made for my daughters 21rst birthday, and I will show you too, the card I made the video of. This first card is an image I got over at Digital delights by Louby Lou-my Brittany just loves anything to do with breast cancer awareness-so I thought she would like this image!
The second card here is the cutest little zebra that I cut out on my cricut with my new Create a Critter cartridge. (sorry Tracey-I really tried!!) : )
If anyone knows of some tutorial videos on Adobe Premiere--let me know!!

The stamping boutique/Magical crafts challenge


Good Morning all!
I am pretty happy with how this turned out-I watched a video over at My pink stamper the other day-and wanted to try something kind of like it for myself. Here is what I came up with.

strange email?

Anyone who may have received what looked like an email from me with a strange name on it -besides mine----do not open this email as it is NOT from me! My email address book has been hacked into. My internet service provider said it probably happened when I joined a yahoo group or something. Anyways, I have been told that the link goes to some kind of canadian drugstore or something--I have no idea what the idea of that is?
I just wanted you all to know that it really didn't come from me-and that I wouldn't send something like that to any of you!
Sorry for any inconvenience that it has caused any of you!

Is that a Zebra driving a pink car???!!


Yep! This is the next card I have decided to make with my new paisley cartridge! Isn't this Zebra just the cutest driving around in a pink car? I love it!
Guess what I did? UT-OH!! Shhh.... don't tell my hubby! I purchased a Cricut Gyspy off of ebay!! It looks just like something that I desperately need! Design while away from home--oh yeah! I will definitely let you know what I think of it when it arrives! I am wondering from any of you who do tutorials- how hard is it to learn how to play them on your blog? I would love to do a card or two on video-but am afraid I am not computer savvy enough to figure it out!! And I gotta get hubby to order a new battery and charger for the camcorder first!
