Ladybugstamper's Crafting Club House

I'm not so great about posting photo's of my work. As president of this club, I promise I will do better but for those who aren't sure what PC's new "Circle" is about, here's a free alternative to join a "club house". ROFL!!!!

Cookies cut and decorated with the CC

We made cookies this time. One important trick, the dough has to be really, really cold. Next time I will pre-roll the dough onto parchment paper, chill/freeze the dough and then cut. The warmer the dough the rougher the cut. Working with fondant was far easier than anticipated. We used some Wilton Cake food color and my Kitchen Aid mixer to blend the fondant, worked really well. The cookies were great and my family likes the taste of the fondant. We used butter cream icing to stick the fondant to the cookies. Thanks for looking.

Okay, here's my very first ever Scrapbook Page. I'm just learning how to make actual pages. Took 2 hours, mostly because I went really slow, got it all done and realized I assigned the wrong instrument to the wrong boy. Good Grief. So, what do you think?

Cricut Cake Mother's Day Gift

Our kids decided this would be a perfect Mother's Day Gift. I'm thinking they're going to love eating the things that don't come out right. They already ate the first batch of sample cuts. LOL!!! Once the fondant was rolled and placed on the mat it was just like cutting paper. Way cool. DD and I are looking forward to doing a lot more with this machine.


I've had a hard time this allergy season, it's pretty much taken all my creativity and shuffled aside. I'm feeling better and back to creating. Here's a quick card I made for a dear friend. I forgot how much fun it is to make things with my Cricut.
