the boyfriend

so right now my boyfriend(mike) is too busy playing games on his xbox. he was thrilled at the idea that i was going to bring my cricut to his house. while i play with my cricut, he gets to play with his xbox. i just might bring it. that way i can make more projects!

this is a card that i made for him for valetines day. it's a premade black card with an envelope. i used my cricut wedding cartridge to cut out the heart. and i used the swiss dots embossing folder on my cuttlebug to emboss the heart. the tiny hearts are small brads. zig zags with cuttlebug. "mike" is cut out with alphalicious. and the hearts are just stickers. haha

this is also a valentine's day present i made for him. it's just a wooden box that i bought from michaels. and i painted it black with silver trims and put a picture of us in the frame. and there was chocolate in it... but now he uses it to store other stuff... =P

this is a random "thinking of you" card for him. swiss dots on cuttlebug. i love swiss dots! probably my favorite folder. a couple of brads. buy brads on bulk on much cheaper! they have all kinds of scrapbooking stuff. zig zags with cuttlebug. "thinking of you" stamp from michaels. i cant refuse the $1 stamps there. i have a lot. but you can never have too many. hehe the envelope i used stickers. i get lazy.
oh 99% of the time i used precut cards. i don't like the card sizes on cricut...
anyway i'll probably make more projects next weekend. mike has a ride-a-long the whole weekend.
