This teacup is for the pocket swap I am in. One of my swap partners loves teacups so I made this, and will put it into the pocket. I did have help from our other partner. I couldn't find a teacup shape anywhere, and she was nice enough to send me one!  The lighting was bad and I did the best I could in photoshop, so I do hope you like it, and that it inspires you. Thanks for stopping by.

New Pocket

So, I totally scrapped the western themed pocket. I just did not like it. Did not feel good swapping that. So I found an image in my stash that I hadn't used yet, and I had a ball! I love making these kinds of things! I love vintage images and I love doing heritage layouts. Wish I could do them all the time! Anyway, that is why I do these swaps. I get to do what I really love to do!! And the bonus is I get to see other people's art who love it too! Well here is my new pocket.

Introducing the Cricut World Blog

I am excited to announce the debut of the Cricut World blog. Two years ago I started the Cricut's Creating thread on We have all became great friends, and some of us have actually met in person a few times.  We are from all over, including one lovely lady, Lesley, who is from Australia. This past summer, five of us traveled to Vegas, and yes, Lesley was one of them. We have shared ideas and techniques and inspired each other so much, that we thought we should share with everyone. So we are starting our own blog, Cricut World, Chirps Heard From Around The World. Starting now, you can go by and see a few of our amazing projects.  Keep checking back everyday, as we are only letting you see a few at a time! Here's mine, but to get the details you have to go to Cricut World! Thanks for stopping by!

Whoo Loves Ya Baby

Here's is a layout using an owl chipboard diecut from 3TailsCraft. He is such a cutie! First I painted him but then I decided I didn't like how the paint looked. I decided to use glitter to cover up what I could. I got those adorable eyes with eyelashes at Michael's. I think they go well with the picture of my sweet grandaughter. I used my new Martha Stewart around the page punches. I love this set! The papers are made by Glitz and are from their Hoopla collection. The flowers are a mixture of Petaloo and Prima. I also used two stamps on this page. The lower right corner is a Bo Bunny stamp, and the butterfly in the top right corner is a punch that was given to me. Well hope you enjoy. Be sure to come back tomorrow. There's something happening!

Old Cowgirl Denim Pocket

Here's my second denim pocket for the swap I am in. Boy did this one give me trouble. I thought when I found this image that it would be easy to work with. But I had a vision and I just couldn't achieve it. I had no intentions of putting butterflies on it. I really wanted to keep it western, but I don't have anything like that. I do hope to change the handle to leather before I send it. But if not, it will have to go the way it is now. I really need your critique on this one! I don't want to send something that isn't great! Please give me feedback!
