Valentine's Day Wall Art made by my Cricut & I!

Hey Hi there! Soo excited to share this Valentine's Day Art with you guys!
 I made this last night and am so happy the way it turned out.
I knew I wanted to make something with this phrase & this cute lil owl.

Side shot :)

Close up

My insta-friend Cyndy told me about these awsome pens and I tried them out on my heart and I'm in LOVE!
Please ck out her blog here:

You can see all the fun cards she makes with such great detail.

This heart looks like I literally stiitched it! Nope! Sure did not! No sir - just a pen!  

ok so....... Now on to my Beautiful heart that I embossed with my Cuttlebug :)

look I just about fell over when I realized the heart would not fit through. No fears I just folded the heart and ran the bottom through.

This is the end result! (below)

Another heart here I made for my girlfriend Sara....
I actually was upset because this was my third attempt and I could not get my vinyl to line up right.
I ended up free- handwriting it. So yeah... thats my writing not the best but hey she liked it! Yay! 

So before she left I made myself one!

Below are some punches I bought and a heat tool that i had been dying to buy! 50% off  at Michaels this week! Score!

Ok my crafty-peeps hang tight til next time!

PROJECT LIFE? Sign me up!!

Hi there crafters!
I am so excited today because I just bought my starter kit for PROJECT LIFE!
I have some insta-friends off instagram who have started project life and it looks so fun!
What is Project Life you say? Project life is an easier way of scrapbooking and does not have traditional layouts. There are no rules and you can pretty much design as you go!
I have attached the website address here:
If you want to dig deeper and get a better understanding of where project life stems from.
Below are some pictures of what I bought to get me started.
I found this binder at Micheals for $17 (was on sale 40%0ff)
The binder and sheets are from We R memory keepers.
So what I will have once this binder is done is pictures and cards that I will write on  
giving a brief explanation of the event or what took place that day.
How many times have you looked at old photo albums and wondered what was going on that day or where was this photo taken?
My very first punch! Which I love and is soo easy to use!

organized my $1 tins from Target with Martha Stewart pens and Scissors

I made these for a project life tag swap

You def need this cute paper from Docerla Creations

Here are some goodies that I recieved from my insta friend Cyndy

This super cute stamp set is going to go perfect because I looove cupcakes year-round!

and of course I will finally have a reason to use my washi tape.

Last but not least I wanted to give you my Insta-friend Donna's blog link here:
She gives you step by step directions to make your own cards for Project Life.
Have fun my friends! 
xoxo Jossie

My Cricut Valentine Art & Goodies

Hey there Crafty People!

I have been super busy! Ofcourse all by choice!
I am still decorating away for my house and my friend Sara :)
Below I made her some Valentine Wall Art
using my CRICUT!
This is actually 2 sheets of red cardstock (8.5 x 11 in)
that I taped in the back to creat a bigger background.

I cut out all my letters in different fonts and glued them with my ATG
the smaller fonts I used my handy dandy Xyron

and this is what it looked like once I was finished!

below is a V that I got from Joann's they are unfinsished letters so I added some RED for Love
I also framed a glittered heart on white cardstock.
I love to Jazz up the place for each holiday to make it fun for my kids... and me too!

I also cut some vinyl letters out with my cricut to make my plain mailbox looks so cute! 

I decorated both sides and added some WASHI TAPE! ha I found another way to washi!

OMG I LOVE this frame below as soon as I laid my eyes on it! I knew this art was coming home with me!

I also added these lovebirds to my Valentine decorations.

Ok so if you follow me on instagram you know this Valentine Date Stamp from Target was a HOT ITEM!

Found one to add to my collection :)

Below is a Valentine Cup I made for one of my insta-friends!

I also made this for my Sister Alma as a birthday gift!

Below is a new (with tags on) apron I found at a thrift store when I
was looking for antique Valentine decor 

Take a peek at this super cute paper and stamps I scored for $20!
Can't wait to make my Valentine cards! 

Ok so these puppies took me a while! I made ten of these wine glasses for an anniversary party.  

50 years of marriage! Isnt that GRRREAT!

If you know me then you also know I looooooove
to pretend I paint hahaha  

found this at Joann's but needed it Cricut green for my craft room so I had to spruce it up!

This glass I made for my GF Sonya!

Below are some more cups I made over the holidays

This is me with no makeup! hahaha I hope I did not scare you!

Thanks for stopping by Craft A Lot? Love that you came by! What have you made for Valentines day!? Please Share!

My Influenster Vox Box Review!!

Hi there! Happy Tuesday!
Today I want to give a lil review of my Holiday Vox Box that was sent to me by a company called
What is Influenster you ask>>>?
Influenster is a place for culture junkies to come together and share their unique opinions of products and experiences. Active members of Influenster get exclusive access to deals, promotions, and swag from brands that thrive off the input (the good, the bad, and the ugly -- they just want to know what's up).  
I was invited to sign up and I did a month after I got a wonderful package in the mail filled with (FREE) GOODIES!

This box was at my doorstep! Yay!

These nails are awsome! Its so easy to put these on! 

This mask worked really good! Smelled wonderful too! Came with enough to do with a friend!

The Eboost I did not care for -no real boost and the flavor was not good.

Now this brush worked wonders! It actually dried my hair faster and gave it a wave!

Love this brush! Def a thumbs up!

wa- la! My blowout! Lasted 2 days!!

Thanks for visiting my blog! 

Jossie Posie!
