WIne Wrapper using Cricut Marth Stewart Cake and Thanksgiving Cartridge

Hey everyone--hope your Saturday is going well!  Today is my day over at Everyday Cricut and I am featuring a wine wrapper that is a perfect hostess gift for all the holiday parties that you will be invited to.

The base wrapper is 10 1/2" inches long and 5" wide, you apply adhesive to one end and wrap around the bottle--use your adhesive to close by layering the right over the left in the back of the bottle.  
You could even do this with simple pattern paper and not need any cricut cuts or embellishments!  Talk about easy!  
Head on over to Everyday Cricut to check out a bunch of pictures and some more pointers!  
Make it a great one!

Friday Funday....RGB Listing for Paper Trey Ink

Happy Friday!!!!  My weekend is short as I am off to Canada on Sunday afternoon.  Boy do I have a lot to get done before I go!

So there have been tons of RGB lists posted and since I have been able to find one for CTMH and Stampin Up--I thought what about Paper Trey Ink!  I love their paper and stamps.  Well I found one:
Paper Trey Ink RGB Codes (Samantha Peyton put this awesome tool together)

I have stated printing these all off--so when I do get an Imagine as it is going to happen I will have a great reference tool ready to go.

I broke down this week and did it--followed the peer pressure and joined the darn circle--I should have french manor in my mailbox today!  I love getting a good package in the mail!

Make sure to check out Everyday Cricut on Saturday as I have an easy fun project that will come in very handy over the next few months with all the holiday parties!

Make it a great one-

Happy Birthday Card using Cricut Simply Sweet

So this week must be celebration week at work--first it was an 40 year anniversary and now it's my boss's birthday!  I used Simply Sweet for this party horn card!

I had to use some stickles on the streamers to add a little somthin' somethin'!

I stamped a sentiment from Stampin' Up  and a couple strips of paper to finish the inside--still leaving plenty of room for everyone to sign with their own personal wishes.

I finished off this envelope as well.  I inked the edges and than used red Martha Stewart embossing powder for the Happy Birthday in the center!

Only two more days and we get another weekend.  I am on the road again next week so I have to get all my projects done before I go--this trip will take me to Canada and NYC!
Make it a great day!!!!!!

40 years in Men's Pants....congratulations card using cricut lacy labels

OK--I new that headline would get your attention!!! Today we will celebrate the 40th year our departments Executive Assistant's has been with our company.  It is rare to find someone that has been with a company that long.  Ms. Edna has done everything from purchasing to customer service to well--just about everything; And she does it with a smile.  She has an amazing history with the company and still has a passion for the business--so here is the card I made

I used lacy labels, some ink, clear embossing powder, glitter, and my xyron sticker maker (I love that thing).
I finished out the inside after adding a second inside card so everyone can sign it.  I added strips of  SEI papers that were used on the outside to tie it together.  I really love the envelope!
I used some clear embossing powder and a clear SEI stamp to add some extra pop to the envelope.  After using the heat embossing tool I took my cat eye chalk ink and inked over the embossing, after blotting the extra ink of this is the result--I really like how it came out--
Hope you have a great Monday!
