And starting with the "B's" . . .

For some reason, I'm been in a frenzy of card making this last week including a surprise birthday card for a friend that I didn't know about until Saturday.  The party was Saturday night!  So here are my 5 "B" cards for this week :

The motorcycle is from Going Places and the Happy Birthday is from Beyond Birthdays.

The blue polka dot paper, the carriage and the layered "Baby" are all from Baby Boutique.  The blue polka dot cut is a Spellbinders cut.

The cuts on this step card are all from Baby Steps.  The label is a Stampin' Up  punch and the wording is a stamp.  I love making cards that are in different shapes.  The bear is covered with Camel Fun Flock.

I love this old car!  It's a cut from the Billionaire Lite cartridge.   The  words "Thank You" are stickers - Vintage Findings from Making Memories.  I don't often use stickers but these seemed to fit the car.

 And last, the matted paper (scene) is from Nursery Tails, the "we've moved" and the car and house are  from Going Places.
Beyond Birthdays seems to be my "go to" cart for this week.    I didn't realize I used it so much.

Thanks for looking!

Cricut Blog Monthly Challenge Entry

Happy Saturday!  It's a beautiful, sunny day here in Denver.

Just a quick post to add a wall hanging to enter in the Cricut Blog Monthly Challenge.  This is a shadow box I made for my laundry room using the background from Nursery Tails (I really like that background) and the cuts from the Country Life  cartridge. The grass is from Everyday Paper Dolls.   The blue bird is a Martha Stewart punch.

Welcome to the first posting of Sandy's Paper Cuts. I discovered scrapbooking and card making several years ago but  I find I enjoy making cards more than I do scrapbooking so that's where I spend most of my time.

This blog came into about as a way to keep myself "honest - If I commit in writing, I have to do it.   As I was staring off into space  for a large hit of "inspiration" (ever have one of those dry spells), I saw the shelf holding all my Cricut cartridges and I had an "aha" moment!  I decided I would make at least one card from every Cricut cartridge I own.  After some quick calculations I figure that if I do three a week - and NEVER buy another cartridge (like that's going to happen!) - I should finish my project by the end of 2012.

In addition to Cricut cartridges, I love to use SVG's from other sources including SVG Cuts, Lettering Delights and ScrapFonts among others. And don't forget all those generous people who make their own designs and offer them for free or at a minimal cost - I'm a big fan of theirs, too.  So interspersed with the Cricut cuts will be cuts from other sources.  But to be fair, I won't be counting them as Cricut projects.

So, starting with "A" . . .
