Disney Journaling Cards

I used Mickey and Friends to make 3 x 4 journaling cards for a mini album. I cut my 3 x 4 pieces of patterned paper and then used my Corner Chomper to round the corners. These were easy peasey to make and will be such fun to use!

And this "When Pigs Fly" is for my pig-loving friends on the Circle message board!

Friendly Competition. . .Teddy Bear vs Pig

Over on the Circle message board, we've having a friendly competition to determine if the Teddy Bear or Pig from the Charmed cart is the cutest image. Of course, I'm on Team Teddy Bear! So hear are a couple more projects using the Teddy Bear image.

A shaped card which is about 4 inches tall:

And some wrapped Hershey nuggets and the little bear is only an inch tall!

No matter the size, the Teddy Bear is just too adorable to lose to a Pig!

Is it a bag. . .or a box?

No matter what you call it, it's once cute little project! The original design was from an origami book {which has been all over Pinterest lately} and the bag/box itself required no cutting and used an 8.5 x 11 inch paper. But I designed it in CCR using shapes from Craft Room Basics so I could make it any size I wanted. The words "Heaven Sent" are from the 9 Months cart and the adorable little bear is from the new Circle exclusive cart, Charmed!

This is what it looks like on the inside. I plan to fold and roll 3 little newborn onesies to put in the bag.

And this is how it looks from the side. I used a velcro dot to hold the bag/box closed.

I think I'll be making a smaller one to use as a shower favor! So what do you think. . .is it a bag or a box?

Cricut Cart List and Cricut Handbook Library!

Since ProvoCraft did away with the Cart Library on cricut. com, sometimes it can be so frustrating trying to figure out what images are on a cart! You can still find them on the Shopping Pages on under the Image Library tab and then under the specific cart. But I really liked the Cart Library where you had a whole list of carts with the link to their handbooks. So, I created a library and posted it here on my blog so I could quickly find what I needed. And, in doing so, I created a list of all the Cricut carts! The library isn't complete with all the links yet but it's been a great shortcut to finding the handbook I needed. And now that it's posted on my blog~it has it's own page at the top~you can use it too!

If you want to find a specific image, like a flower or heart or dog, there are two great searches to use. One is the search feature in CCR. The other is an independent site,

Happy Cricut-ing!
