hey all.. don't know if anyone else has heard of this but I kinda stumbled onto it today and thought I'd share... I'm always having trouble finding which cricut cartridge a certain cut I want is on... cheat sheets help but you still have to go thru paper.. the gypsy is wonderful for doing searching, but thats a lot of money to pay if all you ever use it for is to search cut files... so this site:


was created. the next time you are wondering which cricut cartridge has a birthday cake, or baseball, go to this site and search there..

hope it helps you like is has been helping me.

Cute Card Thursday, Creative Card Crew and 7Kids College Fund challenges

The challenge at Creative Card Crew this week was Let's Give Thanks!..
which could be a Thank You or Thanksgiving...
also at 7 Kids College Fund challenge # 8 is Give Thanks..
and at Cute Card Thursday this week challenge 138 was ANYTHING GOES...
Since I still have so many Thanksgiving cards to get out I decided I would try a scallop easel card.. This was challenging to get the scallops to line up once I put the front onto the easel base... but I think it turned out o.k. for a first try.
the fall leaves is a stamp by Inkadinkado called Autumn Corner..

LOTV, A Spoon Of Sugar and Speedy The Cat's Friends challenges

This week at A Spoon Of Sugar its challenge 129 - Snow/Snowflakes.

I used this cute snowman image from Penny Black. and I used some of my green and silver snowflake paper.


Hey there.. Just wanted everyone to know that its still me, Sassy Scrappz... I've just decided to put on some new clothes for my blog... Since I procrastinated so long into the autumn I decided not to update to a Fall theme for only two weeks.. I decided to go ahead and get my new Christmas look going.. Hope you like it...

Catch The Bug Challenge - World Kindness Day

This week at Bugaboo Stamps' Catch The Bug Challenge its all about World Kindness Day. I made this card using the Bugaboo Angels (If Friends Were Flowers) stamp.
This is for my great niece.. She just had oral surgery and I wanted to brighten her day...
To make her look like my niece I decided to modify the stamp by removing her wings and giving her a smile. (I LOVE being able to modify digital stamps..)

Cricut Christmas Swap Layout Idea

here is how I imagined the cuts could go together for the Cricut Christmas Swap...

Creative Inspirations Shaker Card challenge

This card was created for the Creative Inspirations Shaker Card challenge.. This is my first shaker card and I found it to be the most difficult I've ever done. I overglittered the inside and had so much of it stick to the acetate front... this was fun to make and a good experience but this card will stay here for the holidays and hang on our tree.. More practice is needed before sending these out to anyone... but I'm glad I challenged myself to try it...

Bugaboo Stamps DT Call challenge

I'm going to try for a DT spot at my fav stamp site, Bugaboo Stamps. They make it so easy to order digital stamps. All you have to do is pick out your fav stamp (this is the hard part as you want all of them..LOL), order, download, then print out a digital stamp. EZ PZ.... and for November, the digis are 50% off... I'm going to pull up my wish list and get busy ordering...
I'm submitting one card using a Bugaboo stamp (Poppi Penguin Christmas) and two others.
I used all kinds of texture on the Poppi card. Liquid applique on the marshmallow, glitter dimensional on the foam, glimmer mist on the papers, stickles everywhere and colored "blingees" around the frame. It really is cuter in person... hope it photographs well.

Wish me luck.. I'd LOVE to work with this awesome group...
email is tambra77 at yahoo dot com
