Valentine Swap

This is the box I receive from my partner DianeWagner, for the Valentine box swap.

I alter this photo box for a Valentine Swap at the website. This is my first project altering a box. I use Pantjin Schoolbook cart for the hearts and for the word "love" I use Home Accents. I found the paper at Joann's.

My Trip to Fort Myers,Fl

At Betty's

Firtsof all I live in Florida, Fort Myersisn't far away from where I live but my husband doesn't like driving much. But this time we went there for other reasons , so I ask him to take me to "Betty's", it's a scrapbook/stamping place that I been hearing about, but Oh surprise when I got there! I din't like it much, the paper was old and ugly, butmaybe stamper will like it since it has lots of stamps. I did find a tissue box made of chipboard to alter.

Then while everyone took a little nap I went to Joann's, what a difference from the Joann's that is closer to me. This one is huge, the paper pads where 9.99, many punches were on sale, I discover sizzlets alphabets that I actually like. And I got fabric tomake scarfs for my kids, I will post the final product.

And I know I have to lose the weight!

Playing inthe sand layout


I made this cartridge using Sesame street friends, the letters are really nice for kids layouts. The letter
"i" has skittles or dew drops for the point.

Lot's can happend in a few minutes

I made this layout of y daughter painting using the numbers paper I found at Micahels, the crayons are a clear stamp I found at Michael's for $1.49.
This picture proves that a lot can happen in a few minutes, she was painting one minute then I got distracted for a few minutes and when I turned around SURPRISE!
She only said:"Look mommy I'm a clown"

Th red or coral spot was made with one of the disney princess cartridge. I do not have it because I considerer it has too many small parts to put together for one cut. The cuts are really nice don't get me wrong, but I just don't have that kind of time.

Sweethearts First layouts

This are the first two layouts make using the "Sweethearts" cartridge. My friend Lisa let me use her cartridge to make this layouts. When the cartridge came out for sale, I never think on buying it, but after using it and imagine all the stuff I could make with this cart. I decide to buy it that same week.
I love the second layout with the butterflies because because it was one of those lazy days when you don't feel like doing something to elaborate, but you know you gotta work onyour layouts. So I only added the saying and the butterfly. I found this paper at Michael's.

My Little Monkey!

This is my son John. He is almost 2. He is also very spoiled for obvious reasons! Isn't he cute?!
The story with this picture is that I can't never find a really warm jacket for winter , so after I had my daughter I learn that after Halloween Old Navy puts the costumes onclearence for a really cheap price. So my brother Jonathan got John his first costume for winter, like I said he wears this on winter when we have to go out, like church or doctors appoinments, stuff like that. The costume keeps him really warm with out paying $$$ big bucks!

My Daughter the Future Scrapbooker!

I just had to post this photo of my daughter Bella taking pictures, she loves taking pictures. I'm thinking on gettig her one of those kids digital cameras.
We have a scrapbook/Crafts room and she loves to create anything that has to do with glue, sissors and colors.

We recently made Valentines cards with the Cricut and a few flowers to put lollypops in them, but I forgot to take pictures. I was just so exhausted, the same day we also bake cupcakes for my mom who was sick and some for her sunday school class at church.

We also love baking!

I took advantage of the After Valentines sale at walmart, they had all the valentines products 50% and we got some frosting, sprinkes and cookie trays.

STAPLES carries Cricut products!!

OMG! I was so amazed to see that Staples is currently selling Cricut products!
They have the latest cartridges, markers, vinyl,etc. But most of all they have the 12x24 paper for only $12.99, that's a great deal!
Here is the website to the staples website that shows the paper:

Right now the paper s out of stock, but I'm sure they will be getting it soon!

If you have a rewards card (by the way is FREE) you earn points for certain products you buy like ink, paper, copy center products, etc. Staples sends you a check and you can use that money or points towards any product in Staples that your heart desires, for example Cricut products.

You can enroll in the rewards program at the register or online at

When you recycle an HP cartridge you get $3.00 that you receive in a monthly check. So if you work at an office or ask your friends to give you their empty HP cartridges, you can get a good amount of money to spend in Cricut products or anything else you want, Staples also carries Laminators, binding rings, Trimmers, acid free adhesives, watercolor pencils, and many other things you use in cardmaking or scrapbooking.

If you have a bad memory or don't like to carry to many cards with you don't worry, Staples can look up your Rewards info, you just give them your phone number.

My last month rewards check was for $12.99 with that I bought a:

Staples® Expanding Folding Crate on Wheels

This is an awesome product if you go to crop nights, the one I had before this one lasted 3 or 4 years, that's why I decide it to buy the same one.

Sweethearts Cartridge

I just got the "Sweethearts" cartridge. I'm so excited I can't wait to get it on the mail!
I bought it on ebay for $31.00, yes you read right! $31.00!
What a deal!
I wasn't planning on buying it, but I went to crop night last friday and my friend Lisa had it. She led me use it and after making a layout with it. I knew I had to have it.
I wish that Michaels could have the booklets of the cartridges out, so that people can really see the entire cuts the cartridge has to offer. Maybe if they get lke sample booklets, people will have a better idea what cartridge to buy.

My wishlis right now includes:

-Once upon a princess
-Love Struck
-Mothers Day
-Winter woodland
