Welcome Baby

I love the way this card turned out even though this was not what I had envisioned when I started it.  I had meant to make it in pinks but instead the red just worked better.  I used my Cricut and the cartridge New Arrival for the little outfit.  This cartridge has some super cute images on it....I don't know why I don't use it more.

I used an old Heidi Swapp stamp--Baby and the "welcome" stamp was from my stash.  The lighting is horrid here, it does not do this card any justice. 

Thanks for looking!!

Pinterest Inspiration

I finally completed a project that was inspired by Pinterest.  I had seen some menu boards on there and loved them, so I decided to make one myself.
I bought the frame and stand from Joanns.  The frame was 50% off so I got it for 5.00 and I used a coupon on the stand.  I paid around 8.50 for both items.  I used my Cricut for the cuts....Designers Calendar for the days of the week and From my Kitchen for the rest.  I matched the colors to my kitchen.

I seem to cook more when I have a menu made out for the week.  I have used this for two weeks now and absolutely love it.  I write on the glass with a dry erase marker and wipe it off with a paper towel.  :)
