To be included in the draw, you need to do four things:

1. Like my ScrappyDIVA page at

2. Subscribe to my YouTube channel at

3. Follow my Ustream channel at

4. Comment on this post.

I will tell you why I want all these subscribers and followers.

Recently, I became a YouTube partner and whenever someone watches my videos, YouTube pays me. You don’t pay me anything — it is the revenue generated from YouTube advertising that is used to pay me. The more subscribers I have, the more people who are likely to watch my videos. The more people I have liking my page on Facebook, the more likely it is that Facebook will display my page to potential new likers.

I will use to choose a winner on Friday, February 15 and I will announce the winner during my Ustream Cricut Workshop on Friday night. The time and details for the Workshop will be provided on my ScrappyDIVA page and I will create an event so that you can import the date and time into your calendars (Outlook or iCal).

Good luck everybody!!!!

P.S. Only one comment per person please 🙂 (I have deleted the duplicates)

CricutDIVA Design Team Announcement

I am so happy to finally announce that I am starting up a CricutDIVA Design Team. But this won’t be just any design team … it will be a very active and involved design team with many members with varying degrees of experience.


We will have helper bees to help the less-experienced team members and lots of helpful information. We will also have guest designers and angel designers to fill in if someone is unable to post as planned.

If you have never set up or published on a blog, don’t worry. We will be able to help you.

If you are chosen to be on the design team, you will be expected to prepare at least one blog post per month, but you can publish more often if you like, depending on availability.

Those of you who are on other design teams may participate as long as you can meet the commitments you sign up for on this design team.

If you would like to apply to be considered for the first 6-month term of the CricutDIVA Design Team, there will be certain requirements.

  1. You must have a blog. You cannot expect to be part of a design team that is based on members posting on their blogs if you don’t have a blog.
  2. You must have a Cricut machine. Any size or model is fine, but you must have a machine and cartridges to cut out your images. Having access to a Cricut may not be enough unless you can be absolutely sure that you will always be able to make the projects you need for your posts.
  3. You will be expected to follow a prescribed format for your posts.
  4. You will be expected to use clear pictures.
  5. You must be positive.
  6. You must have a helpful nature.


To be on the design team as a designer (layouts, cards or other types of projects):

–          Submit two projects that would be representative of the types of projects you would post as a design team member.

–          Follow the style of the post at as an example.

To apply as a helper:

–          Describe what area you would like to help with (blog setup, blog design, blog posting, creative ideas, inspiration, Facebook page administration, etc.).

–          Tell me about your experience in this area.

Camping at Higley Flow

I worked on this layout at an all day crop yesterday. We have this crop monthly in a huge Golden Age Club where we have so much room, we could each have two tables of our own. It’s absolutely my favourite crop location.

The layout is from a camping trip my husband and I went on with my brother and his family to celebrate his birthday in 2011.

We had just gotten Percy, our Cocker Spaniel a couple of weeks before the trip so we were brand new dog owners at the time. He will turn 2 this month. How time flies!!






I used the Cricut Campin’ Critters cartridge to cut out the tree.
