Yesterday was my first day as a substitute teacher again. I am finally working at the school district that I attended school from PreK to 12th grade. It's an awesome feeling!!! Today I get to sub in the elementary school that I attended, so I am SUPER excited!!! I haven't stepped foot in that school since I left the 4th grade.

I hope that I can meet up with some of my elementary teachers so that I can let them know that they are the reason why I wanted to be a teacher too. It's funny that I can only remember the names of my elementary teachers. I can't wait!!!

Well here is my creation :)
Materials Used
Cartridge: Sophie (butterfly cut at 1 3/4 inches)

Paper: The Luxury Stack by DCWV

Diamond Ring

Good Afternoon! I am excited to show you a 3D project that I created using one of the cartridges that was released a few weeks ago, Bridal Shower. I fell in love with the 3D diamond ring and I couldn't wait to make it. I thought that it was going to be difficult, but it wasn't! It was just a lot of folding and scoring. Pretty easy...
Different View
I love how you can open the diamond from the top and add candy.
Mini Tutorial
This is how the ring looks after it is cut. I cut it at fit to page and the size is 9 inches.
I then folded it and scored it. There are small cuts on the ring that cue you in on where to fold.
A better view of the folds
I then added tape on this tab.
You then have to glue/tape the small flaps.
Now all you have left are the tops of the ring.
I also cut the setting of the ring at 9 inches. All you have to do is glue the tab to put it together.

February's 100 Cartridge Blog Hop

If you are looking for the Ticket to Love Blog Hop click here.

Welcome to February's 100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop!!!

You should have arrived here from Sue-ann's Blog.

Here are my cards :)

eye <3 U
I got the idea for this card by someone who posted their card on Pinterest. I love Pinterest!!! If you haven't checked out Pinterest, you need to! Leave me your email address and tell me you want me to send you an invite.
I used my Gypsy so that it would be easy for me to cut the circle. I first selected the card I wanted and then I selected the monster. I placed the monster where I wanted it and then I placed the circle. I then deleted the monster and made my cut.
Materials Used
Cricut Cartridges: Mini Monsters & Wild Card
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink Worn Lipstick
Stamp: Love Always by Pink by Design
Paper: Valentine's paper from Target's $1 section :)

Winnie the Pooh and Friends
Mini Tutorial
I cut my heart cards using the Wild Card cartridge and used distress inks around it.
I love the Disney cartridges, but it takes forever to make all of the cuts and glue them together.
I used Action Wobbles.
Wobble in action!
Can you see the Action Wobble?

Materials Used
Cricut Cartridges: Pooh and Friends (Pooh, Tigger, and Eeyore cut at 3 inches and Piglet cut at 4 inches)
                            Wild Card (heart card cut at 4 ¾ inches)

Ink: Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick and Dusty Concord Distress Ink

Stamp: Love Always by Pink by Design

And now for a GIVEAWAY!!!
I hope you survived this long post!!! I am giving away one of my Cricut Vinyl Figures and 5 Action Wobbles. When I ordered some vinyl figures, I got two of the plum ones. When you order these online, you don't get to pick which colors you want, but I got lucky because this was the only double I got.

Happy Love Day

Good Morning and Happy February!!!
I used the Elegant Cake Art cartridge to create this Valentine's card for my boyfriend.
All I had to do was make two cuts at 4 inches and glue them together. I always enjoy using the cake cartridges because the designs are always really elegant.

I used the Love Always stamp set by Pink by Design.
