Creating with my husband

So over this past weekend I decided with the kids away that I wanted to make the cards from the 2 NEW card kits in our current Idea Book, Ivy Lane and Lollydoodle.

My husband was watching the replays from the Olympics, and then he decided he wanted to come and make some cards for his own personal stash. Now the reason behind all this is he claims he can't buy me cards any more where I am making them now, and he can't see going out and spending that kind of money on cards when I can make them for considerably less.  

So he sat at the table and watched as I cut all the pieces for each kit, and I asked him to then seperate all the pieces that would be needed for each card.  We then made cards together.  I wish I had thought about taking photos of him creating with me, but maybe I'll do that next time.

My hubby did all the stamping, and assembled the cards based on the instructions in the kits.  Here are the cards from Ivy Lane.

Next is the Lollydoodle cards, and he is getting more confidence.

The card kits come with enough product to make 15 cards, 3 designs, 5 of each design.  I even have left over paper and embellishments to use on other creations.  All you need is a paper trimmer, blocks, inks and adhesive for the Lollydoodle, and the same for the Ivy Lane with the exception that you will also need the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.

If you would like to purchase the card kits featured here, or any items mentioned you can shop on my website here, or maybe you'd like to earn some product for me to learn how.


  1. Now that is cool. I don't see me ever getting hubby to play along with me. Good for you!

  2. I love that your husband joined in with you!


I enjoy hearing from you, and love to get blog love for my creations. Thank you for visiting my blog.
