Will You Be My Maid?

I have been so busy with wedding planning that I almost forgot about my beloved cricut and blog!!! =(

Since I got engaged, I have been thinking about a lot of different things I could do with my cricut machine for the wedding...maybe I'll be even bold enough to make my own invitations...yes, all 150+ of them!

First things first--- I had to ask my friends to be my maid of honor and bridesmaids! I found this similar idea on Pinterest and decided spice it up with my own ideas. Hope you enjoy!

I used the Martha Stewart score board and followed instructions on how to make a 2X3X3 inch box.
Tip: To make the right lid, always remember to align the cardstock at the triangle mark I have circled in red in the picture below! (I have forgotten this a few times and my lid becomes a bit funky)

The purple pinwheel boxes are my Maid of Honors and the rest are my Bridesmaids!

(Pinwheels are made using Martha Stewart score board. I took a 1X12 in cardstock/paper and scored it at every inch horizontally. Then glue/tap the ends together to make a wheel! Isn't it cute?)

Inside contains a ring pop for everyone!:

This is a cute and simple project to do to ask your friends to be your bridesmaids!

Graduation Card

Whoa, I have not been here in a looonggg time! Sorry readers! I had a lot of stuff going on this month that I will  blog about soon ;)

A couple of weekends ago,  some good friends of mine graduated from Law and Pharmacy school. Sadly, I forgot to take pictures of the Pharmacy graduation cards so I only have one card to show. So proud of my friends!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Mother's Day!

Mother's Day is coming up! Last year, I made this card for my bf's mom. I'm trying to think of new ideas for this year!

This was my first and only trifold card. Took some time to get all the right measurements and cuts together!

Pretty? I have to come up with something new to top off last years!

Thanks for stopping by!

My First Care Package

My childhood best friend had her birthday this week and I wanted to send her something extra special.
I've always seen 'welcome/care packages' moms send their kids while they are in college and couldn't help but to try to make one myself. Of course, I had to attach one of my cards with it ;)

A2 card:
- Cuttle bug Happy birthday folder
- Bird/Chick cut at 3 in
- Present cut at 1.5 (?) in.

I used some recollections "April" paper for the present...too bad you can't even see "April." haha, oh well.

Presenting my first care package! I filled it up with some school supplies, candy, crackers, snacks, gum/mint, soup base mixes and more!
Do you see my card? =)

Thanks for stopping by!
Graduation season is around the corner. Get ready for some graduation cards!

My First Box

I've had my Martha Stewart score board for a long time now but have never made a box until recently!

My advice-- use thick cardstock! I don't know why I thought using regular thin cardstock would NOT make it flimsy. I learned my lesson and added some scraps of cardstock I had laying around inside the edges of the box.

I made this box for my long time friend's birthday.
Inside the box contains 2 nail polishes. hehe

Making this box was pretty fun. I can't wait to make more!
