Cards for my Stash

I haven't had a lot of time for crafting of late.  I decided to just do what was my initial paper love, cards.  My stash of just blank ones for various purposes is almost gone.  I always find it just as easy to make multiple of the same thing.  The best way to do so is to use a coordinating paper set, then make your cuts a few times, and then just mix and match for the most part.  One thing I look forward to each month is the Cricut Magazine by Northridge Publishing.  In it, Shantaie Fowler ( had done a card that I loved.  This is my similar version in the yellow and black with Teresa Collins paper. I used the cartridge 'Frame of Mind' for the intricate cut and 'Cricut Craft Room Basics' for the rest.

The peach and pink is using DCWV new stack 'Peachy  Keen'.  I used the Creative Cards cartridge that just came out for all of the cuts.

Play-Doh Recipe

I have two teachers I've been mentoring this year.  Years ago I got this excellent play-doh recipe from a friend-colleague of mine.  I don't think there is a better one out there than this. It doesn't feel gritty and isn't really smelly.  It also stays soft for a long time.  I only throw it out eventually just to make fresh in case it's full of germs. :)  Anyways, I was just going to make a simple recipe card and then spun off onto this idea. I used 'From My Kitchen' and the 'Craft Room Font'.  They both loved it. It's meant to pull out, but I laminated it all first before I sealed the sides etc.
