The Moffitt Kids

I just had to put this picture up on my blog to show how big and cute the kids are getting. Jamie and Jon should be really proud of their children. They are all so excited about the new baby coming. I think we all are excited and nervous at the same time!

"Awesome" School Card

This card is for someone who has achieved good grades on their report card. I used foam stamps from Inkadinkado. These stamps sure are made well. One thing I like about their stamps is that they are mounted on clear plastic. That makes it really easy to place the stamp. And when you wash them off they don't feel like they are going to fall apart. I hand cut the apples and inked the edges and drew lines with a fine black marker. The circles where punched with a 1/2" circle punch then I used an office hand punch for the centers. I also outlined the letters with a fine black marker.

Christmas Card

I made this card out of a Laminate sheet. What I did was I put the clear laminate sheet through the Laminator, cut it down to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. I stamped with Staz-on ink for the swirls which is from CTMH rubber stamp set. I inked the bottom of the dew drops with the black staz-on ink. That is where I hid the adhesive to attach to the cardstock, under the swirls, then I put the dew drops on top of that so you don't see the adhesive. On the strip of cardstock I used a versamark pad for the water mark of swirls. I rounded the two corners.
Now I am thinking I can make a mini album out of all the sheets of laminate I have Ü

Cricut Layout

Here is a layout that I made using my Cricut. I just need to add the pictures of course. One of the squares will be used for Journaling.
Here is what I used:
Tear Drop Cartridge
Butterflies- Size 2" and 1 1/2" tall
Squares 4 1/2", 5" tall, 5 1/2"
Stamped Cartridge
Flower 3 1/2"
I used Bazzill Paper, I inked all the edges except the flowers. I used small brads and large brads on the squares and the flowers have buttons on them which I thread brown ribbon through.
I out lined the Butterflies with a fine permanent ink marker.

Card Challenge

Here is my first challenge that I did from
It sure makes it a little easier to make a card when you have all the colors already chosen for you. But anyways, this is what I made from the challenge.
I really love the felts and the buttons. I bought those at the convention that I went to.
The card size is 5x5. The stamp I used is from Studio G and I double stamped it to make a shadow.

Scrapbook Expo Make and Takes

I went to a Scrapbook Expo last weekend with my two daughters April and Jamie. It actually was perfect timing when we went. This is the same week that my daughter Jamie found out about the news of her unborn son. My husband and I were able to spend some time talking with her and giving her all the support that we possible can in this situation. I think being at the expo helped her get her mind off what challenge lies ahead. We really had a great time. What mother wouldn't! We shopped and scrapped on Friday and then took a class on Saturday and did some more shopping and scrapping. We won lots of fun prizes too. Between the three of us we won over 10 prizes. It was to our advantage though, because the crowd was slim pickins. This was the first event that they had in St. George and they didn't have a great attendance. Hopefully for the vendors it will be better next year!


These are the make and takes that Robert's Craft had at their booth. Some of the things were made with the Cricut.

Baby Moffitt News...

Last week we had just learned that our Unborn grandson has a serious heart defect. It's very complicated to describe so I will link to my daughters blog, they have all the information.

This is very heartbreaking for all of us. I hope you will keep my daughter and her son in your prayers. We have great Faith that the Lord will do his will as he sees best.
