Just for you

What a two weeks I have had, I have been trying to make another shaped book using Create a critter and design studio but my cricut kept going wrong so I don't know if I will need to replace it. I did eventually get the cuts done but the pages aren't as neat as I'd like. Anyway I will share it when it's fininshed.
I have spent two weeks back and forth trying to track a cartridge missing in the post. With any luck the company have now sent me another one. It's taught me that it's best to use paypal because I didn't get much help from the company until I got them involved, and it's the first time I'd used paypal.
I have also spent ages trying to sort a problem with my blog page without success. When I try to add buttons from blogs only half the button shows. I dont know why my template is narrow and I'm scared to try too much to change the template incase I lose all my posts. So if any of you nice ladies can help I'd be glad to hear from you as I would love to add you buttons.
I just love the card I have just made with some difficulty, I had to keep hiding it everytime my DH kept going past my craft room! I hope you like it and dare I say it myself it is very cute.

Best of pixar cut at 7.25 inches. He wasn't too bad to make certainly easier than Buzz and Cars. I'm not happy with the photo I will take some more and add them later

First Shaped album

I made this album for our 3 year old granddaughter Olivia. She has just had an operation and in is now in a hip spiker plaster. I wanted her to have pictures of the family to look at while she was in hospital. She is now home and taking the restraints of being all plastered up very well. She is pictured throughout the book and true to form the first thing she ate after her operation was toast. This is my first attempt at a shaped picture book. I chose Mickey as she had just spent a voucher before going into hospital buying Mickey to go with her Mini mouse.
There are three dogs in the family, that page was fun to do. I cut a westie in chipboard to make a book mark and also a doll. Once I had finished the book  I felt at a loss "what can I do now" I said to hubby,  his reply "housework" Oh horror I won't ask that one again LOL. I will now have to have fun making books for our other grandchildren

I used Design studio and Gypsy. The book is cut at 5.75 inches.
Cartridges used are
Plantin schoolbook, Accent essentials, Animal kingdom, Going places, New arrival, Everyday paper dolls, Create a critter, and of course Mickey and friends.

First word book

Every time I have started to write, something happens and I get called away! I have been busy making my first disney shaped book and hope to share it with you all this week. Until then here is a word book I made for a friend. I did not decorate the book as she also does card making but doesn't use a Cricut so I wanted to create something she could then add her own style and work to.My next book is decorated and I will share it soon.

Stoybook and Design studio cut at 5.75 inches.
