Whimsical Graduation Card

Happy Graduation to all those who have someone they know graduating this year! How fun! My children are still a few years away from graduation, but they always get caught up in the excitement this time of year. I think it keeps them motivated again for the next year of school.

For the graduation card, I used the Cricut Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge to cut out the cute little graduate, and the CTMH Artbooking cartridge for the fireworks.. The paper doll is cut at 4″ height, and the card itself is 7″ x 5″. The whimsical font is called “Hopscotch Alphabet,” which can be found HERE.

Here is a closer look at the graduate paper doll:



Thanks for joining me today!

I will be linking this card to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog, Challenge #212 found HERE. This week’s theme is “Class of 2014.”


I’ll see you in the craft room,

Not Your Everyday "Get Well Soon" Card

My mom called me last week and told me that my poor dad had tripped while playing golf and suffered three injuries: a sprained ankle, and two broken ribs. Seeing as my dad is quite the funny guy, and wouldn’t hesitate to poke fun of someone else (in a loving way, of course) if this happened to them, I quickly whipped up a golf-themed card to send to him. Check it out:



When he opens it up, here comes the part that he will really enjoy…
Poor guy. I hope that this card will make him smile when he sees it.

To make the card, I used my Cricut machine with the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. The doll and all of his golf-themed accessories are included on that cartridge. The papers were various scraps from my paper stash.

Thanks for looking!

Party Time!

It’s Friday! It’s Easter weekend! And, It’s my husband’s birthday weekend! There’s going to be a lot of fun crammed into this weekend. When anyone asks me what time it is this weekend, I’m going to say that it’s…
I added a couple of new paper dolls to my Etsy Shop to commemorate this fun weekend and how we feel. Whatever you are doing this weekend, have fun and stay crafty!

Thanks for looking,

My Paper Doll Obsession


What is it about paper dolls that make them so dang adorable? Ever since I can remember, I have loved paper dolls. As a child, I enjoyed the books of cut out dolls and clothing. I would cut around the tabs with great care as not to ruin any potential doll outfit. Each doll would be handled with care and lovingly tucked away at the end of play time.


These days, I no longer “play” with dolls, but I do love to create my own for my scrapbooks and cards. I especially like to make look-alike dolls of whomever I am scrapbooking. Here, let me show you…


This is my son…


…and, this is my daughter.

I recently created these dolls to match my kids and their soccer uniforms from when they were younger. I was getting so many compliments on my paper dolls, that I decided to sell them and opened up an Etsy shop, where I make customized paper dolls. Or maybe I should say, WILL make, since I only opened a few days ago and have not yet received my first order.

If you are obsessed with paper dolls (like me!), or just need a little cuteness in your day, you can check out my paper dolls here…
Thanks for looking!
