Two Summer Projects

As I was getting these two projects uploaded to 2peas, I realized that they are both of the summer time! I guess I'm ready for summer to return already. While I am grateful for this mild winter so far, I miss fresh vegetables from my garden! 
I made this card for a Scrapbook Trends call for Father's Day cards. I used a newly acquired Cricut Lite cartridge Billionaire. Remember my post on Black Friday and my major loot at a local hardware store?  As good as the prices were on Black Friday, they got even better right before Christmas.  The lite cartridges were on clearance for $10 each! 
Here is a layout using Work in Progress' January 2012 kit.  I have so many of these photos from the Sculpture Garden each year.  I probably should not print so many of them, but no point crying over that fact now.  At least this is one more page scrapped!
That's wrap for now.  I will be back with a pretty adorable Doodlebug layout later, hee hee.  I think it's going to snow again tomorrow, time to brace myself for a long commute to and from work!

Hi Jing -Jing , long time no see :) Hope you had a good holiday season and got to relax a little. These look gorgeous. ALways love a clearance sale. AT that price they are almost free LOL! Take care and happy new year.

Love, love that layout, Jing-Jing! Such a clever take on a grid design, and how cute is that car! You are so creative!

Cute card and page! I picked up a Lite cartridge from Menard's right before Christmas for $9! Bought the chore chart one. Hope you were able to enjoy the warmer weather today, we are in for some cold temps! High Thursday of about 13 or so depending on the station. I don't know about you, but I was really liking these mild temps! Hope your commute isn't too bad. Hubby commutes from River Falls to Mpls, so we understand.

You always showcase products in the very BEST way!
Good luck with the commute, we're supposed to get our first real snow of the season Thursday!
and a big thank you for your sweet comment that made my day ;-)

No way, are they still on sale??? I'd pop on over and get one, Mendards is just a few yards away from where I work! Wonderful cute card with those buttons.

Jessica said...

I too miss my fresh veggies. I was already whining about it in November when the farmers' markets were over. :) Adorable layout and I hope the commute isn't too bad tomorrow!

Christie Bryant said...

Love the card! $10??? So cool!
The squares on the layout are fun, I'm totally scrap-lifting that idea!

Absolutely adore your card and layout - love the grid design and the colours are to-die-for!! Have missed visiting your blog, I have temporarily closed mine down while I am not creating but that is all about to change very soon, I hope!! ;)

Great projects! Beautifully done, and I am obsessing over the card! That is the coolest, masculine card EVER!

Beth Hallgren said...

What a great "man" card! I missed out on the Thanksgiving /Christmas Cricut deals :( The black background on the second layout, makes the photos center stage. What line are those yellow papers from?

Audrey Pettit said...

Awesome stuff, Jing Jing! Love that masculine card with the old-fashioned car. And SO love the grid design on your layout. The way you divided the blocks with the string and buttons is fabulous.
Good luck with the snow. We've been having such a mild winter so far.....not sure we're going to see any of the white stuff this year.
