7 More Layouts to Go!

Yup! That's right! Only 7 more layouts to go and I'll be done with the Mexico City album!

I hope you like this one.. I was able to use my SOCCER cricut cartridge on it and I think it worked out great. This is a picture of the stadium that is in Mexico City. It's called "THE AZTEC STADIUM." It definitely is GINORMOUS!

And this is the Soccer Cricut Cartridge:

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Scrapping!

Mickey and Friends Valentine's Card

I have been sick! My throat is killing me! This cough makes it worse and now I'm completely congested! What a "great" way to spend my weekend! My hubby and I have been cleaning slowly, VERY SLOWLY. But I did have an opportunity to make this card with my Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge.

Fun, Fun, Fun cartridge! Here's my creation:

It was definitely A LOT of paper piecing but it was soooo worth it! I love it! Well, off to bed I go. I feel horrible! God Bless!

Serenade Birthday Card

Geez, I've really been into cards! Well, I guess it's not that... it's just that I need to make these cards because I have birthdays coming up and I'm OUT! Today, I was able to make a cute little card with the Serenade Cartridge! It's such a nice and cute cartridge. I definitely recommend you getting it if you haven't! Lots of trees and happy images.

I did the pot and the flower! Love how it came out.

Well it's off to bed I go, it's really late and early start tomorrow is ahead of me! I hope you all enjoyed your Thursday! Friday is finally here! God Bless!

Happy Scrapping and see you tomorrow!

Pink Journey Birthday Card

Good evening everyone! How was everyone's Wednesday? I'm starting to get a sore throat and it seems like my toncils are acting up! Ah well! What can I do? Anyways, today I worked on a very special card. It's a card for my dear friends' son. He passed away in 2008 at the young age of 15 and a half. He was diagnosed with Synovial Sarcoma Cancer, a very rare cancer. It was a horrible year for my friends. I am not a parent, but the death of a child seems to be the most devasting thing on this earth. So ever since his passing, his parents have done whatever it takes to keep his spirit alive. They are an inspiration and wonderful people and love to receive any type of item that reminds them of their son, Andrew. Every year I send them a text on January 6th saying Happy Birthday Andrew! And every year they post on their facebook the same thing. This year, I plan to do something different I will be sending this card below just for him. I used the Pink Journey Cricut Cartridge to make the Sarcoma Cancer ribbon. Added a butterfly and some flowers and bling. I wanted it to be low key, but still be able to bring a smile to their face when they open it. I feel that I achieved it.

This card will be sent off tomorrow and arrive just in time for them to receive it. I pray every night, and during that prayer, I include them to bring them strength and faith. While I was dealing with my own cancer, they were very supportive. I felt a small connection with them, since they know and had expierenced first hand what Cancer is about. So I now have a small favor to ask you, next time you pray, plese pray for this wonderful couple. They are amazing people. Amazing parents. Amazing friends.

By the way, here's what the Pink Journey Cricut Cartridge contains:

Now, to share another card. The inspiration of the card above came from a card that I made last night. It's an early Valentine's Day card that I just absolutely LOVE how it came out. I didn't use any Cricut carts on this one... but essentially used the same template. Just here to share:

Hope you guys continue having a wonderful evening! God bless and see you here tomorrow!

Happy Scrapping!

All Occasions Cake Art Card

Hi everyone! Yes, I know two days in a row?? Posts? lol! I told you my scrap mojo is coming back! Today, I was able to make a card with the Martha Stewart All Occassions Cake Art Cartridge! I took pictures of the steps I used! I was feeling really Martha Stewart-y (lol), so I decided to play with some of her goodies today! :o)

First I want to share with you the images the cartridge contains:

I decided to make the little birdie just because I thought he was way too cute to pass up. I cut the birdie in pink and the branch in craft paper. I believe the cutting size was 3.8.

I liked the idea of using the kraft paper for the branch because it looks so "woody," if you know what I mean. I then was able to apply glue on the leaves and add on some Martha Stewart Flocking Powder in the "Fennel" color.

It gives a velvety feeling (if that's even a word) lol.

I let it dry and then finished off my card with some ribbon and with a DCWV Whimsy Cardstock page cut on my Cricut Imagine with the default images that it has. I cut it at 4.5. Of course I had to add some bling and a cute handstamp sentiment! :o)

I hope this motivates you to play with your cartridges more often! I get home really excited thinking about what cartridge I'm going to use next!

Thanks for stopping by and as always...

Happy Scrapping!!

Happy New Year 2012!

I know. I've been MIA for a very long time. I do apologize. It's been a good busy here in the Tristan home. Work and family/friends have kept us very happy. I start my job full time tomorrow. And that's going to keep me even more busy. I also hadn't had much of a scrappy mojo until now. I've been cleaning this scrapspace and it's definitely working up something. :o) So we'll see how that goes. I did updated my Cake Blog, so if you have a chance to check it out, please do. Here are some Vegas pictures of when we went in September for my sister in law's wedding. It was so nice!

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Scrapping!
