Create a Critter Baby Card...

Good Morning!

I am having way too much fun with this Create a Critter cartridge! I may never use the rest of my carts again! (I'm kidding!)

This card was so very easy! I used some scraps from the DCWV Nana's Nursery stack for the background and the stamp is from Stampin Up!

I sat down and made a few different animals at about 3 1/2" and put them all together. The next evening I came back and went through my paper and designed the card. For me, this works best because when I make a card, I like to have all of my supplies ready to go.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a GREAT day!

Here is a little bit of the press release if you would like to know the details:

"(South Jordan, UT, St. Petersburg, FL, New York, NY – July 13, 2010) – Leading multi-channel retailer HSN and Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia today announced the debut of Martha Stewart live at HSN on July 19. The business impresario and lifestyle icon will bring her expertise to HSN during a special series of shows showcasing Martha Stewart Crafts™ products.

During her appearance, Martha will also introduce the Cricut Cake® Martha Stewart Crafts™ Edition, an easy-to-use, cake decorating machine and electronic cutter that precisely cuts gum paste, frosting sheets, and much more. Developed by the creative innovators at Provo Craft, the new machine, which is co-branded with Cricut Cake and Martha Stewart Crafts brands and comes with unique Martha Stewart-designed cartridges, will launch exclusively on HSN.

“Our Martha Stewart Crafts line is so innovative, that we have decided to partner with HSN to provide consumers with a new set of tools that will forever change the way they craft and create,” said Martha Stewart, founder, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. “In addition, our new Martha Stewart Crafts Edition Cricut Cake machine will enable home cooks to transform the things they bake into works of art and wonder. I look forward to July 19 when we will present our unique products on HSN.”

“We are thrilled to develop a long term partnership with a lifestyle icon like Martha Stewart who is an inspiration to fans everywhere,” said Mindy Grossman, CEO of HSN, Inc. “We are confident Martha’s innovative products will resonate with a growing number of HSN customers who look to us as a crafting destination.”

“We’re very happy to be partnering with Martha Stewart,” said Jim Thornton, CEO of Provo Craft. “Together, we’ve paired the successful Cricut Cake technology with Martha Stewart’s revered style and design. Our goal is to remove the challenges that keep people from being creative, and we’ve done just that with our Cricut Cake Martha Stewart Crafts Edition. We can’t wait to see what people will make once they have it in their hands.”

The new Cricut Cake Martha Stewart Crafts Edition gives everyday decorators, as well as professionals, the ability to create edible masterpieces such as elegant wedding cakes, charming birthday cakes, and themed cookies or cupcakes for any occasion. The machine saves time cutting unique shapes, designs, and fonts from sheets of gum paste, fondant, cookie dough and other edible materials that would otherwise take hours with various individual cutters. Cricut cartridges with creative new designs from Martha and her team are available exclusively for purchase during the launch on HSN.

Fans can sign up for when-to-watch emails and learn more about Martha Stewart’s upcoming HSN debut at www.hsn.com, key word: Martha Stewart."

Martha Stewart Scoreboard - Project Dimensions Chart

Good Morning!

I recently purchased the Martha Stewart Scoreboard and I really like. However, I did not like the fact that the project dimensions were inside the bone folder compartment - on top of the lid where you couldn't possibly read them while working on a project.

Well, I have a solution. I have created a PDF file of the project dimensions that you can simply print, cut and tape to your Scoreboard. Also, for those of you who don't like to read the tiny print, I have created a full page reference with the same info.

Download the files HERE.

If you have any issues with the downloads, please send me an email at cwarnke@sbcglobal.net and i would be happy to send the files to you.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!

Sunny Days Layout

Good Morning!

I wanted to share a layout that I made for the My Pink Designer call. I was not chosen as one of her designers, so I'm hoping its now okay to post my project :)
For this layout I used:

Once Upon a Princess for the doll.
Peachy Keen Stamps Princess Face Assortment for her face.
Cricut Plantain Schoolbook cartridge for the waves
Cricut Create a Critter for everything else.

I have to say that I was really surprised at how many different cuts are on the Create a Critter cartridge. It has quickly become one of my favorite cartridges!

Have a Wonderful Day!
