This is the cutest coffin cut from the Cricut Happy Hauntings cartridge.  I cut it at 6.25".  It cuts a couple tops I did the plain one.  I stamped the web on it and sponge the edges with ink.  The Hershey nuggets are great aren't them.  The stamp is from Stampin Up's Holiday stamps made just for the nuggets.  I couldn't figure out what color to use so I did the three.  FAB, Thanks Robbin HUGS XOXO

These cards I designed for my first card class.  They loved them.  I used the Cricut  Happy Hauntings cartridge.  I cut the tree at 3.25", the ghost at 1.5 & 1.75.  The grave was 4.25 WIDE.  I think I did a great job making it dimensional.  The center one I only used paper from American Crafts "Boo" collection.  The kids were a border on paper and the orange strip was the back of the paper.  The stamp set I have had forever.   The Headless Horseman is very cool.  I cut him at 3.25 I think.  I added more grass after the picture.  The Spooky was cut at 2".  Thanks for stopping Robbin HUGS

Sisterhood Birthday card

My girl Tanya is an outdoor hunt, cameo and shot guns kinda girl.  We laugh how she buys her purse only if her gun fits and mine have to be pretty.  We are so opposite with so much but we have the greatest friendship.  I will share more in a minute.  I made this 5x5 card starting with a Kraft card base.  the used my wood grain Tim Holtz embossing folder with brown paper, inked the edges with vintage photo.  I added a small strip of pebble paper to the bottom.  the large butterfly is from a K&Co light weight wood embellishments, then cut a Zva Creations bling, stamped HB and layered that on the pebble paper. then added Iamroses skeleton leaves K1-805 / Z
and some cream Cherry blossoms S3--153 and some two tone brown S10. It wouldn't be complete with out butterflies from Matha's punch.  The cabochon butterfly in the bottom corner is from Recollections. This card is so Tanya.  She loved it!!!

  The Sisterhood, L to R Stacy~Lesle~Aubree~Me ~Tanya.  We had so much fun this night.  Tanya's son came home from Iraq so It was a huge party.  We had the t-shirts designed, "Sisterhood Forever".  I went to Burger King for the crowns.  Then designed each crown to match our personality.  I added embellishments to each but left room to add whatever as time goes on.   Thank you for stopping by.  HUGGS, Robbin!!!

Thinking of You Card

LOVE this card.  I made this card for my friend Colleen.  She had surgery on her stomach.  Ya wouldn't that suck.  The inspiration for this card where the roses from  I love love these large Pink and Yellow two tone R 77 - 611, mixed pink Cherry Blossoms S3 - 1 and the pink S10.
The A2 card is on kraft card stock, the pink layer(5.25X4.0)with a brown layer (5x3.75).  I some what had the the flowers aranged, then cut the Thinking of You with Cricut Lite Lacy Lables. The satin ribbon lace hot glued down.  I almost always include a cameo in my flower arrangements.  The final touch is always a few butterflies with the Martha Stewart punch with three pearls in the corner.  Thanks Hugs Robbin

IamRoses Butterfly Composition book

I covered this book for our teacher at our pre school.  I asked her what colored she want and she said Turquiose.  I thought oh no but I would say oh ya.  I think turquiose can be goddy if it is not used right.  I had to go to Iowa City that night and new I already had the flowers.  Then it was the hunt for the right paper.  This orange paper has yellow and turquiose in it, then I began building the flowers.  These flowers are from  The roses are item R21 50 mixed pack, the small ones around the cameo are S10 and the yellow, turquise flat flowers are  ZQ P80-427.  When I placed my first order I bought several mixed packs.  I didn't think i would use the ZQ flowers but I love them and  I ordered more.  Then added the cameo and a few metal butterflies to the arrangement.  I cut the florishes(Home Decor) and her name(Hello Kitty Font) with my Cricut. The butterflies were punched out with the Martha Stewart punches we all LOVE.  Thanks Hugs Robbin

Dress Form Composition Book

Hey Crafters!!!  I made this covered composition book for my co-worker Kristy.  The paper collection I used is DVWV Linen and Lace. I used Frayed Burlap Distess ink from Tim Holtz.  The tall dress form in the middle is a foam stamp from Prima(  I stamped it them cut ou the dress and cut out the "stand".  The stamp, stamps the stand solid to but I did not want it solid. I trimmed it with 4mm pearls on the top and pearled trim at the waste.   The two smaller dress forms are Tim Holtz Sewing Room dies.  The one on the left is coverd in lace look paper and sponged with ink. I added the s10 flowers from  I used a dark brown on the shoulder and 3 cream ones to the waste.   The left one I lined the paper so the large flower would be the skirt and just added Basic Grey pearls for a necklace.  I then topped the front with pearl trim from  Thank Hugs, Robbin
