My sweet love card made using the NEW Kate's ABC's!

Hello, friends!

Ok so here's the deal my sweets, I spent a large portion of my very busy weekend trying to make layouts to show you for a large portion of this week. I also had to work on my projects for Everyday Cricut which also required a layout. As much as I love crafting, I am not sure how many layouts I can make for you guys. I know you love them. I love them! The things is I make 2-3 projects per week over at Everyday Cricut which includes at least one layout. Then I make 5 or so things for this little jewel of a blog. So, when it is all said and done I make between 7 and 8 projects a week. That is a LOT of projects! I will do my best to make more layouts for you, but I won't do tons of layouts every week. However, I have two for you this week! I will post one of them tomorrow and the other on Friday.

Today's card is made using one of the NEW fabulous cartridges, Kate's ABC's! I know this is one you guys are excited about. I love it too and have so many plans for cuts on this wonderful cartridge, so stay tuned!

The paper and ribbon are SU! I cut the ice cream Sundae at 4 3/4".
I used some of Emma's stamps and Papertrey Ink stamps on this card. Also the little doily(Martha Stewart) is bought in a pack at Michael's.
The border is a Martha Stewart punch.


Thanks for stopping by!! I will see you all back here tomorrow!!

Have a great Monday!

Ok, funny story... when I showed my 4 year old DD the cuts on the Kate's ABCs cartridge she yells, I want this.. look at the ice cream sundae! I'm like, what ice cream? LOL! That was the 1st thing she zeros in on :) Love the card and I know we "must have" this cartridge :)

Great card! This cartridge is top of my list - although I don't know how I will get it as I live in Canada.
As for creating and blogging - it's supposed to be fun! If you are starting to feel burdened, take a break. I love seeing what you've made, but I'd hate to read that you've burned yourself out. Enjoy life!!

Scrapper69 said...

PRETTY! I love the paper and the cuts.... And you sound like me with all those projects going on.... I make at least 6 cards a day x4 each.... yes that would be around 24 cards a day! and post on my blog... but only 4 days cause I share it with my sister.... although I do most of the work while she eventually shows up to post every once in awhile! OOPS!! Maybe I said too much! LOL
Love the card Melanie! Have a wonderful day! :o)

And that is exactly why I don't do well with my blog. I don't have a witty tale or a great card or other project to show off every couple of days! I'm such a bad blogger. But I do like having a place to upload what I do make. I love the little sundae card. Very cute and 'sweet' too. TFS
