Here is the Squash book opened up. I made two pockets and added stamped images with white ink. I really like the way the images pop out.

Valentines Day Squash Book

I made a squash book for my daughter for Valentine's Day. She turned 21 last month and I decided that I wanted to send her more than a card. It took me longer than I wanted and of course I thought of it a little late but it's the thought that counts. Hope she likes it. It got a little more "girly" than I originally was thinking but it's hard to stop with the "bling"!

Father's Day "Shirt" Card

I saw this "origami" shirt made by Mary at Cardcrazy09 and had to make it. (smaller one).
Then I thought, what if it was larger like a card. I could make these all day long. It's so easy. It's folded exactly like the one she did only I used a larger sheet of paper, 8x12.

Open it up and the bottom half is perfect for a 4x5 mat of the same print. You may have to trim a small amount off the edges. Then place a 3 3/4 x 4 3/4 mat on top. The "Tie" is ribbon tied in a loose knot and I slipped the other end through the back. My husband made a Full- Windsor knot for me but I could never replicate it. The sunglasses are from the Paisley Cartridge and I rounded the edges. I think it was cut at 1 1/2" .
I made the "Hawaiian Shirt for the Beach Challenge. I was going to add a beach umbrella to the inside but ran out of time. Had to mail it.

First Imagine Card

I just got my new Cricut Imagine Machine and I wanted to make my first card for the NSD challenge. I saw the tomatoes and wanted to give this "fruit" a chance.

The card is 51/2 square

Mother's Day Card

I decided this would be a Mother's Day card but when I started it I really wasn't sure. The toile background paper was really pretty, which I found at Michael's, and wanted to keep the image simple. So I just went through some cartridges to see what would make a great silhouette. Kate's ABC's turned out perfect. This card could be a sympathy, thinking of you or even an Easter card, there is a similar image with bunnies. I really had fun making this card and plan to make more.
Thanks to Mary at
for her wonderful comments about this card. She spoke about it on her coffee and cards segment.
