"MY GUEST DESIGNER"
HI everyone ~ I'm Tracy (CJToo) and I am super excited that Emma asked me to be a guest designer on Imagine-Nation Monday today. I live in Texas with my hubby and 2 boys, I work full-time so I have to be creative in the evenings and on week-ends. I love sharing my creativity and passion for Cricut crafting on my blog http://www.craftjunkietoo.com/. I've been blogging for almost 1 1/2 years and really enjoy sharing and getting inspiration.

Thanks for asking me to be your very first guest designer Emma - I had a total blast! :)

For my project today I created this Polka Dotted Party Purse using my Best Friends Imagine cartridge and my Cricut Imagine machine.

Polka dotted party purse -
Best Friends Imagine cartridge
2 sheets of 12x12 white cardstock
- select "fit to page" for polka dotted pattern - page 29 (outside of purse)
- select "flip" and "fit to page" button cutting purse in pattern on page 44 (liner of purse)
score lines, adhere purse together
brown trim
flowers
brad.
rustic twine ~ www.PapertreyInk.com
tag -cuttlebug die plate
thanks so much stamp ~ Papertrey Ink Mega Mixed Messages
brown marker for faux stitching
This would be a perfect party favor box for a ladies luncheon, girlfriend gift exchange, or birthday goodie bag.
Fill with treats or special gift.

GOOD MORNING My Creative Friends! Welcome to another Throwback Thursday challenge! For those of you who are new to my blog, every Thursday I host a challenge for you to dust of those older cartridges & create something w/them! We ALL know that we have carts just sitting in our craftroom just feeling VERY NEGLECTED:( So I decided to start these challenges so we can utilize them once again! So for this week's challenge, you are to create a "Sports" theme project! It can be ANYTHING you want, just as long as it's "Sports Related"! I decided to break out my '"Sports Mania" cartridge, which, "In MY Opinion" is the best Sports cart out there! This one has a little bit of EVERYTHING so I thought this was PERFECT! I decided to make this CUTE Coach card for a "Woman"! There are alot of women coaches out there so I'd thought I would give you a cute idea for YOUR coach! If your coach is a Man, all you have to do is switch up the colors! I hope you enjoy my video & my card!;)

Here are the specifics for my challenge:
****Link your project up to "Mr. Linky" below, then leave a comment

****Last but Not Least~ HAVE FUN!!
As you can see I added some extra touches to my card!! I used my black precision marker to do my doodling & I also used an OLD stamp set I had gotten 8 years ago from Close to My Heart! I think it's called "Nothin but Net"!


The Lucky WINNER of the Pink stamper's "Buggy Punnies" stamp set is:  #14 JAMIE!!! whoohooo!! CONGRATS Miss Jamie!!!

A Short Tutorial & a Simple Card! - Episode~109

Good Afternoon My Creative Friends!;) I've had alot of questions on how to link your projects up to Mr. Linky for challenges! So I decided to do a video explaining to those of you who weren't sure! In my video I actually forgot to mention that you can link your project from your facebook page also! Just make sure that you copy the url code from the page your project is actually on!;) Now, to my card! One of my sweet viewers had sent me some CUTE embellishments to try out!! I LOVE the flowers that I used on my card! The colors were very "Vibrant" & cheery & that's exactly what I like! You can visit her etsy store
"Pixie Petals" She has some CUTE CUTE items in her shop! The buttons & that stamp sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and I also used the Double Loop border punch from Martha Stewart!! Well, I hope you enjoy my video & I hope it answers alot of your questions!;)

This is my "SUPER SIMPLE" Card!;)

Thank you VERY MUCH for visiting me today!! OH, if you haven't gotten a chance to see my "Getting To Know You" on the Peachy Keen Blog, why don't you head on over there!

Peachy Keen Challenge #39 - Episode~110

GOOD MORNING my Creative Friends! Welcome to another FUN Peachy Keen Challenge! For this weeks challenge, here's what you have to do:
Create elements used in wrapping a gift. There are no limitations! Ideas for elements are: tags, gift wrap, gift card holders, and note cards.  I know I said in my video that you must use a Peachy image, but it's NOT required! ALTHOUGH, if you do have Peachy stamps, you are "Encouraged" to use them!;)
Easy Peasy right?? For my project, I decided to do a gift tag! I picked up this CUTE bag from Target yesterday along w/the curly ribbon & made my tag to match it! I had a REALLY HARD time trying to get a GOOD picture of it, but after a million shots of it, this was the best I can do:(  I promise, that it looks way CUTER in person! I cut out the tag using "Tags, Bags Boxes & More", & the balloons were cut out w/"Once Upon A Princess" cartridges! Those ADORABLE faces are from another 2 of my FAVORITE sets, "Simple Sallies" & "Cutie Pie Face Asst."  The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper's "Everyday Life" stamp set! ALSO, for this challenge we have a guest designer  "Lauren Brewer"!  She has a great attention to detail and creates perfectly using Peachy Keen Stamps! So don't forget to visit her blog along w/the rest of the "OH SO TALENTED" Peachy Keen Design Team!;) We would LOVE for ALL of you to play along w/this challenge! Link your project up to Mr. Linky @ the Peachy Keen Blog for a chance to win an AWESOME PEACHY prize! Deadline for this challenge is on Sunday, October 31st!


Close up of My Tag!;)

Well, I hope you enjoyed today's project! Thank you for visiting my blog & don't forget to join in on this FUN Challenge!  Have a FABULOUS day my sweet friends!;)

Click here to pre-order Gypsy Magic and More right now!

To celebrate the GRAND UNVEILING of my second DVD, I'm running a special! You can pre-order Gypsy Magic and More for only $19.99 with FREE SHIPPING!


My Recorded Ustream AND a project~!

Happy FRIDAY my Creative Friends!! WOW, what an EXCITED FUN FILLED week I've had! I'm looking forward to my weekend to just relax & celebrate my son Anthony's "Real" birthday on Saturday! lol.... Yeah between my two boys, we've been celebrating both of their birthdays for 2 months straight now!;) They deserve, I have GREAT little men! Now, here is the link for my recorded version of my 1st Ustream I had on Wednesday night! So if you missed it, I hope you enjoy it!;) I also announced my 2nd DVD called "Gypsy Magic & More!"  The reason why I chose that title is because I wanted it to be for EVERYBODY & NOT just Gypsy users! There are a few "Non-Cricut" projects, a few "Cricut" projects AND a few "Gypsy" projects! I do also show you how to create the projects I made in my Gypsy
without it also! I hope that makes sense! lol..... Now "MY" Favorite part of this DVD, is that I came up w/10 different digital "FREE" Downloadable sentiments to go w/each project featured in my DVD!! YEP, FREE DIGITAL HOLIDAY SENTIMENTS!!! HOW EXCITED is that??  They are ADORABLE! I used 7 out of the 10 sentiments in my projects, so you have 3 extra "Bonus" sentiments to work with! For my project below was one of the sentiments that I did NOT make a project for in my DVD! I just wanted to make something on my Livestream for you using one of them so you can get an idea for a gift AND to see what they look like! These sentiments print out @ 4 inches and you can ONLY shrink them to be "Smaller" and NOT bigger! So you can resize them w/any of your punches & they look AWESOME! For my project below, I used the "Have a Berry Merry Christmas" & used my punch from EK Success to punch it out! I resized the sentiment to be 2.25 inches wide & it fit the punch PERFECTLY! I thought that this would be a CUTE & SUPER SIMPLE gift to give someone for the holidays!
Leave me a comment & let me know what you think!;)


For my jelly jar, I used my brand new "Double Loop" Martha Stewart punch for my band around the jelly jar! The pattern paper is from "My Mind's Eye" called "I Believe", Button & candy cane twine is from Papertrey Ink, Raffia is from local craft store! AND that BEAUTIFUL digital sentiment is from my latest DVD! I used a "Ticket" punch from EK Sucess to punch it out! A CUTE & easy gift for anyone in your life who LOVES jelly or jams!;)


My DVD is available HERE for pre-order right now & is expected to ship out in 2 weeks on the 29th! Thank you SOOO much for stopping by & enjoy your Friday my sweet friends!;)

Now, for my Random Act Of Kindness, I plan on taking my boys down to the animal shelter & have them play w/the puppies/kitties! How often do those poor little furry babies have visitors come to play w/them! Good thing I know someone who actually works for an animal shelter, so this is going to be fun! My boys are VERY EXCITED to do this also! Don't worry, we won't be bringing home another puppy only because my furry babies, "Angel" & "Scrappy" will NOT be happy campers!! lol....
So, with that said, we are asking all of "You" to go out & do something kind for someone or something like maybe for your community or a special cause! I would LOVE to hear from you on what you plan on doing OR what you have done already!;)

This leaves your theme wide open to Autumn, Halloween, or Harvest Elements (note, since it's October, a Thanksgiving feast scene wouldn't really work for this challenge, but gourds, pumpkins, etc. would be appropriate!)
We will vote and pick one judged winner and we'll all vote for our top 5. PKS will send out badges to the bottom four, and the WINNER will receive a "Peachy" prize package!"

So, with that said, the deadline for this challenge will be October 17th! So why don't you head on over to the Peachy Keen Challenge blog & link your project up to Mr. Linky for a chance to win!
Now, for my layout I used the "Apple Cider" fall collection & the I-Rock from Imaginisce. Also, the stamps I used from Peachy Keen are "Pumpkin Face Parts" and the "Pumpkin Faces"! I hope you enjoy my video on how I designed my layout!!


AND the LUCKY winner of the Lisa Jean Halloween Stamp set is............
