Back To School Card with Attached Bookmark!

OMG! I am in one heck of a mess! Scrapbooking supplies from one end of my basement to the other. I am waiting for new flooring to arrive and now I have decided the walls need painting, so yes that means more mess. LOL! But I did go down there last night and make a card for a few of my favorite challenges.
 The front of the card I designed using and this weeks Freebie from Bear Hugs Art and Scrap and my Cameo.
 For the card base I used a piece of card stock that measured 4.5 X 12 inches . I scored the card at 4.5 inches and then used a perforated score line at 9 inches. This way I was able to make a bookmark that could be torn off and used by my granddaughter who loves to read. I used both my Cricut and my Cameo for this card! ( I love the sound of both machine just humming away at the same time! )

For the bookmark I used Kate's ABC and Recess Cricut cartridge for the cuts.
I found the poem on the Internet and just smiled when I saw it and said this is just perfect for Jan!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges.

Cameo Creations- Back to School
Fantabulous Cricut Challenges- Back to School
Exporing Cricut- back to School using the following colours, red, green, black, purple, yellow, orange, blue and brown.

Visit from the Tooth Fairy!

Good Morning my Crafty Friends!
Wow, this has been a very busy week for me, no time or energy to craft. I am in the middle of getting a new floor in my scraproom so everything is spread from one end of the basement to the next. Every where you look all you see is stuff! What a big mess! I swear I have more supplies then Michael's.( I have a feeling I will be giving away some blog candy in the very near future!)

But I did take a few minutes out today and make this cute little sliding pop up card.

Instruction can be found over at Splitcoast Stampers to make this card.

I used the SVG file called Visit from the Tooth Fairy from Bear Hugs Arts and SCraps. (the file is on sale for 35% off making it $3.58 for the whole set!)
Here's a picture of the set!
I used Stampin Up carstock for the card and inked all the edges with Passionate pink ink. The verse was taken from the Internet.

I will be entering this card for this weeks challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut. This weeks challenge is to make a project using a tooth, Tooth Fairy or smile.
As always thanks for stopping bye and have a great weekend.

Good morning my Crafty friends! Today I have a layout using Bear Hugs Trick or Treat Dogs in Costume file.

The Poison title was cut from Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge at 2.75 with glitter paper.
I have added a lots of different odds and ends I picked up at Michael's last year after Halloween for a seal of a deal.

Blog Candy and a Mini Mouse Back to School Card.

Hello my Craft friends, I hope this post finds you all well and having a wonderful weekend.
I made this Easel Card last night for a couple of challenges going on right now. The first is for Action Wobbles Challenges: This weeks theme is Back to School. Next is Cardz TV: School Cool
 Mini Mouse is a free SVG I found on the Internet from Reddy's Ramblings. If you are looking for Disney SVG files you should pop over to her blog and check it out.
 The word Awesome is a sticker that I won as blog candy last year. I think it fits in just perfect! I added some ribbon that looks like a ruler on the front of the card, a cute little sentiment from My Craft Spot and popped Mini up on a Action Wobble for fun.
Hers a picture of the card closed. So I did mention blog candy!
When going through my scrapbooking supplies looking for things to use on my card, I noticed I had two packs of this Back To School Scrapbooking Pad, so I thought why not have a small giveaway. So if you would like a chance to win this 93 piece scrapbooking pad just leave a comment and I will pick a winner next week. As always thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
