7 Up Biscuits - Amazing

This is not a crafty post, but I had to share the link to the most AMAZING biscuits ever!  At least I think they are. :)  They take 4 ingredients... one of which is 7 Up...yes 7 Up, along with three other basic ingredients.  They are light and fluffy and practically melt in your mouth.

To go to Monster Mama's site and the recipe click Here.  Bet you can't eat just one. :)   Thanks for sharing your recipe Monster Mama!

Happy 4th Birthday Card

A bright and fun birthday card with the Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge.  Giraffe is cut at 5 1/2" and the number 4 is cut at 5".  Background is embossed with the Cuttlebug Birthday embossing folder.  Card is embellished with Liquid Applique and Stickles.

Inside of card...printed cardstock is from the DCWV Celebration stack.

I finally finished my super easy to make barn shaped album.  The only Cricut cartridge needed to make the base of the album is My World or any cartridge  with a barn and the blackout feature.
  To cut the barn use the blackout feature along with the fit to page button and a 12x12 sheet of chipboard and again with cardstock for the front and back of the album.  Remember for the trim you will want to turn fit to page off and manually set the size to the size the barn cut at.
 I hand cut the barn doors/pages of the album at 5" tall and 4 1/2" wide.  I cut in chipboard and covered in decorative cardstock.
 I used my gypsy to size the rectangles from the George cartridge for the trim on the barn doors. 

 Animals are from the Animal Kingdom cartridge and hay bales are from the Old West cartridge.
 I have not embellished the pages yet as I wanted to add my pictures first and then see what fits.

 I used the Bind it All to bind my album, but you could use a hole punch and binder rings.
It felt good to get back in my craft room and make an album. :)  Thanks for looking!

First and foremost I want to thank each and everyone of you for all the emails and comments I've received.  Your friendship and supports means so much.  Thank you all!!!

Life is better and things are looking up.  We are a family of faith and our faith has got us through many things in life.  God is good.  Another great inspiration to my family is an amazing woman by the name of Joyce Meyer.  You can go to her website HERE.  She has a tremendous personal testimony and such words of wisdom and faith.

Now for some crafty fun...I am working on a new shaped mini album.  The best part about this album is you will not need a computer, Design Studio or the Gypsy to create it.  It can be done with your Cricut Expression machine only and that means it really is easy to create.  I will post all the details and pictures as soon as I get it finished.

Again, Thank You All and Have a Wonderful Day!
