And here is what it looks like open! Since Michael is a graphic arts major, he is designing the inside with a fun poem I gave him and the details of the open house. I found this idea on youtube and just ran with it.
Many thanks to Julia at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ for starting this wonderful project.
p.s. yes I know my post says Tuesday, but it's Wednesday where Julia lives and almost Wednesday here lol! Close enough and my desk won't change between now and a few hours from now as I am going to bed!

THEME-CHALLENGE: Birthday + a cake, cupcakes or balloons
My card uses the Cricut Imagine Yummy cartridge.
A2 card base from DCWV.
Bazzill Basics Coconut Swirl cardstock (then printed with the Imagine)
Piggy Tales cardstock, "toad"
Pebbles, Inc. Happy Birthday rubon
Cuttlebug Birthday embossing folder
Martha Stewart marker, persimmon
Gelly Roll pen, clear star
Foam pop dot
That's it! One great thing in using the Imagine is you actually will use less paper and supplies and can make a quick card at any time.

Weekly Challenge #51: Valentine’s Day Cards Challenge!
I just love how this card turned out. I created it for the Cooking with Cricut Blog hop this past weekend and it truly inspired me. I decided to add a little bow to it to qualify for this challenge. I am not sure if I like it better with or without the bow. It was created during the window of the challenge so it should be good for posting. This one is going in the SMASH book!

Trying a post from my tablet today. This week has been really busy. I got a new paper tower, see previous post. So with getting that I had to rearrange my area. I can't get the whole wall in one photo so I will take a few more here. What I am working on is a menu board. I broke the glass as you can see there just opening the frame so I think its defective and need to exchange it. I will blog about it when it is finished. I also have a few birthdays coming up that I have started collecting the stuff for. Am hoping to get those done this week and to sort my patterened paper into the paper tower. I also have something occupying my chair lol.
This challenge is hosted by three Cooking with Cricut Design Team members: Kemma (that's me!), Dalis and Michelle !!
I was inspired to do something different for this card. I had heard of tea bag folding in an iris folding class I took in December at my local library. I was searching through some of my books and happened to find one showing how to make this design. It involves taking little squares of paper and folding them up rather intricately and then putting them together to form a pattern. I used George and Basic Shapes cartridge to cut out 8 2x2 pieces for the center design since I did not have a square punch that size, using the white side of the paper for half, and the design paper for the other half. That is one of the neat things about having a Cricut, I can make a bunch of the same shape really quick and easy with it.
