Lifes a Beach glitter window card


I love the card feature you can find on some of the carts because they are perfect for glitter windows.  The cards on this cart are square so I used DS to eliminate the outside cut and then trimmed on my paper cutter to be a standard A2 card front.  I also cut the fish out "regular" so that I could layer them in different colors.  It would be so nice if when PC made these they would post a sizing guide for layering, such as if cutting 4'' card function, then use 2'' for layering.  There only is one of my carts I have found that is easy to do that with (I want to say zoobaloo), but the others you really have to use DS or gypsy.  The paper is from the citrus stack (DCWV) and the stamp is from KAndrews (Splash-tastic).   Thanks for looking!

Hydrangea and center step cards

Just a couple cards to share today.  First is a hydrangea card I made my Aunt, the flower is an svg which can be purchased HERE.  The second card is a center step card, no cricut on this one.  I went to my friends today and she had one of these center step cards in her craft room, I loved it and had to come home and make one.  Mine didn't come out as nice as hers, but I still love the idea and will be making more of these.   The instructions can be found HERE .    Thanks for looking!

This weeks craft project : a picnic table

Just wanted to share this weeks project, DH and I made a picnic table!  I just finished the first coat of stain/sealer.  One more coat and then it will move over to the land so we can enjoy sit and watch them build  our home.    I got the instructions here.  It took us about 2 hours to cut and assemble, and about $40 in wood/screws/nuts and bolts, and then I'm using sealer I found in my dads shop.Pretty cool, huh?

ROW scrap page and svg

Today's scrap page is for the sketchythursdays GDS July Challenge layout.   It had to include red/orange, something summer-y, and a journal spot.  I used a life ring for the circle and switched it to a 2 photo.  I made an svg for the doodle swirls, ore, and life ring in inkscape,  they are below for one week.  The patterned paper is cosmo cricut.  FYI, if your doing beach-y photos and you like carts, Life's a Beach is on sale now at Fred Meyers for only $24!  I found it last night and picked one up.  I had already finished my page, but there are so many cute things on it, I'm sure I will have others watery/summer/boat pages I can use it on.   Thanks for looking and for your comments!

Camera overboard :(

Yesterday we went down to the boat to watch fireworks and just as I went to step onto the boat, my camera slipped out of my pocket and down...down....down into the water.  I am so sad. I have a good camera but I don't dare take it out of the house because I am a complete KLUTZ.  The camera that went swimming was a cannon sd 1300 powershot.  I haven't had it too long (my last camera also met an untimely death due to my klutziness).  My hubby said I planned it because I didn't like the photos this one took - true I didn't think it took as good of photos as its predecessor Canon sd850 - but I still hate that I just lost a camera.  I think I will be shopping ebay for a second hand one.   Any suggestions?  Tell me your favorite point and shoot please.  Camera svg freebie is below for your time.
