Anna Griffin and Camping

We have been camping the last two weekends and I decided to take some of my vintage Anna Griffin kits with us. I challenged myself to make at least two cards during each trip and will share my finished cards over the next several days. But first, I want to share a few photos from our last trip. We made sure we social distanced and had our masks with us. We feel blessed to be outdoors when so many are not able to leave their homes.




And now, my card I made while camping.


This is from the Window Ledge Card Making Kit kit that I purchased a couple of years ago. You can still purchase the dies from Anna’s website.


And this set is also available on Cricut Design Space!

Hope this post finds you safe and well.

Cricut Joy…Cozy Fox Mug

I purchased the Cricut Joy from HSN on March 3rd and I am loving it. It cuts vinyl just like its big sister, the Maker. I can’t believe it cuts vinyl without a mat.


The Joy was so easy to use, and this adorable mug was done in 15 minutes. I used the Cozy Fox Mug design that was free when you purchased the Cricut Joy. So adorable! The image number is #M10DABA3.


I used the Cricut Smart Borderless Vinyl and Transfer Tape to make this project. I can’t wait to make labels!

Hope this post finds you safe and well.

Missing You…

I hope this post finds you and your family safe and well during this scary and difficult time. I took some time off from blogging to spend more time with my family, but I want you to know that I have missed you all and I think about you often.

With everything happening around our globe I am very fortunate to be able to work from home. My husband falls in the high-risk category and we are blessed that he is also able to work from home. I am so very grateful to all essential workers including everyone that has risked their lives to keep people well, safe, and fed. You are my heroes! I also want to thank all of you that have made masks. You are incredible!

Going forward, I will probably post less frequently, but want to share some of the items I make with you. Hopefully, you will find the distraction helpful.

Now let’s get on with the post. I am trying to get extra use out of my dies, so I decided to try something new.


For this card, I used Anna’s Oval Easel Frame Die Set. I just used the layer die and it fit perfectly on a 5 x 7 card from my Anna stash. I love getting more use from my dies, especially now. You can still purchase this die on Anna’s Website.


I also used Anna’s Birthday Collage Toppers that are also still available on her website and a sticker from her Favorite Sentiment Stickers.

Hope this post finds you safe and well.

Wedding Mug

One of my favorite things about Cricut Design Space is the ability to use SVGs. With the variety of Cricut Access I can usually find what I need, but it is nice to have options.


I love how this mug turned out! I purchased the mug at our local Dollar Tree.


I can’t wait for my friend to see this adorable cup.

Have a wonderful day!

Spa Slippers with the Cricut Mini Press

I used Cricut Iron-on Vinyl on a plush surface and it worked perfectly thanks to the Cricut Mini Press.I bought these slippers at Target for $3.00 and thought it they would make a cute gift for someone  going to a spa. I know they are not practical and I am not sure how long the vinyl will last, but thought it was a fun idea!


For this project, I used the Palm Trees Image (#MC97D7A6) from the Warm Christmas Wishes Cartridge.


Have a wonderful day!

Cricut Congrats Quick Card….While I Wait for the Cricut Joy

I am so excited about the new Cricut Joy and can’t wait until mine gets here! In the meantime, I made a couple of  Quick Cut cards on my Maker. They are very similar to the new Cricut Joy Insert Cards.

I used pattern paper to make this card look extra special. Super quick and easy!
