About Miriam Crocker

My photo
Life is Great! I am married to the most hillarious, loving and brilliant man who is only a more amazing father. I have the three most beautiful, spunky little girls that I am blessed to be able to stay home with them and do all of those fun mommy things I always wanted to do.I thank God for the path I am living! I enjoy getting away to my "Cricut Lovenest" to play when the house is quiet. It is good for my soul!! It is rather new to me but I feel like the "Cricut and scrapbooking community " is such an amazing and talented group of people, I can grow and learn from...I feel so lucky!

Birthday "Wishes" - magic lamp card

For a friend who just had her 4th baby and is celebrating her birthday. I couldn't offer her the rest and relaxation she would want and need but I could offer her a day of SHOPPING! A gift card holder card is always a fun present!

Halloween 2010

I love to shop....

Plantin Schoolbook, Fabulous Finds and Lyrical Letters were used for this cutie! Sweet ribbons and buttons were just the right touch.

At the Patch

Designers Calendar, Lyrical Letters and Mickey and Friends used. I love the picture to be the focus so simple and to the point is best for me!

Alice in Wonderland...Curiosity

To the Polls...

Voting Day for my Niece...the Yankee Doodle Sweetheart! 

Daddy's Girls

Sweet page!
I used Lyrical Letters to cut out the little tag then framed out the picture with coordinated papers. Adding polka dots, in my opinion can never be a bad thing! Then I ran this super sheer ribbon through an X sticker making machine for a really clean stick!

River Fun

River Fun welded on my Gypsy to a square.
Then a small circle I ran through my Cuddlebug to get the fun dots. I chalked the edges of the flower to add a touch of color and framed each picture out for dimension.

Sisters page

A very simple page using Nursery Rhymes font .

First Day of School!

Baby's FIRST Tooth!

8 Years - Anniversary Card and Sleeve

8 years and what a great 8 it has been!
For this card I used:
Gypsy Font...for the font of course.
Plantin Schoolbook for the card shell and the sleeve base.
I thought a sleeve was a different way to house the card since it didn't need to be mailed.
Designer's Calendar for the background and the "8".
I took the wedding rings and turned on its side 
then I used some simple rhinestone and ribbon embellishments.

A Simple Thank You!

"Nursery Rhyme" Font is one of my favorites!  These simple tags from "Tags, Bags, Boxes & More"  with matching sleeve are an easy and quick way to say thank you! A little chalk ink on the edges adds dimension and some soft satin flower ribbon for texture!

Anniversary Card & Matching Envelope

I used the Lyrical Letters and Plantin Schoolbook to create this
"Perfect Pear" card.
The black envelope accented with green pears for the addresses 
makes it feel personalized and complete!
Embellished with a simple ribbon and some "Inkessentials" Glossy Accents on the seeds to add demension and shine!

Summer A'LaMode Scrapbook page

There is nothing like Ice Cream on a Summer day!!
I used the Potpourri Cartridge for the cones & Plantin Schoolbook the lettering!
Then the mix of polka dots and flowers felt like summer too!

Teacher Gifts 2010

 "Caribbean Escape" scented Bath & Body Works Hand Soap
with just a quick tag saying
"Thank you for your kindness and Support, I think you deserve a Caribbean Escape".

Thank you's - Tinkerbell

"TINK YOU" Just a play on words makes for a fun touch!

I used Tinkerbell & Friends cartridge and some unexpected paper and ribbons to step out of the typical "Tink".

Baby Girl Book

This Baby Girl Brag Book includes baby stats and sweet ways to display
 those precious first moments!
