Thanksgiving Box Card

Hi Crafters! I hope all is well in your world. I can't believe Thanksgiving is fast approaching. I had created this box card in Cricut Design Space and had planned on sharing it earlier this month. I created this little box card using items that are available in the Cricut Design Space Subscription. I also made a video tutorial on how to assemble this card; link for the video and the Design Space file will be at the end of this post. I would love to see a picture if you should recreate this card; you can share on my Facebook page.

Craft Haul Video and Giveaway

Hello Crafters! I wanted to share a haul via YouTube video. I purchased crafty goodies from Michaels, Concord and 9th, and Close to My Heart. I mention in the video that if you purchase any Cricut Bundle from my Close to My Heart Store a winner will be chosen to receive the Twinkle Stamp set. In the video I explain why I chose to get the Cricut Artistry Bundle. I did purchase the digital version....great value!
Now to make it even better for my blog subscribers. If you purchase any Cricut Bundle from my Close to My Heart Store a winner will be chosen...if the winner is a blog subscriber you will receive 2 stamp sets...Twinkle and Framed. Framed coordinates with the new Artistry cartridge and Twinkle coordinates with Artiste. Both will be fabulous on their own! These stamp sets are no longer available because they were recent Stamps of the Month. Here are some pictures:

All images are included in the Cricut Design Space subscription. I will be giving a card kit that includes all the cut pieces and bling featured in this card.

Sneak Peek and Winner Announced

Hey Crafters! I hope all is going well with everyone. I wanted to share a sneak peek of my second card in my Halloween series. I had planned on sharing this particular card this past weekend but life, as you know, did not see it that way.

Also, I wanted to share with you all that I signed up to be a Close To My Heart Consultant. I did this because I truly believe in the quality of their products and they offer awesome discounts to Consultants. I share my recent Close To My Heart haul (and others) in my first ever Craft Haul video – click here to see or you can scroll to the bottom to see. I explain in the video that I will be having a Monthly Gathering on my CTMH page and will be giving away Mystery Hostess Rewards.

Giveaway and Finally my first tutorial ~ Sunflower Box Card

Hey Everyone,

This post has been a long time coming. I created my Sunflower box card back in July and my goal was to create a video tutorial for this particular card since then. I had purchased Pinnacle Studio 18 video editing software shortly after and have worked here and there to learn how to use this program. It was overwhelming at first but I love it to say the least. The video is a 2 part series and is a little long but I didn't want to miss any details. I would appreciate your feedback on the my tutorial. I would love for you to become a subscriber to my YouTube channel 'The Electric Poppy Creates'

Giveaway...we all love a giveaway! I will pick one winner (must be a subscriber) in the next 2 weeks - you will be receiving a Sunflower Box Card Kit. All the paper elements to make this card is included. Winner will be announced 10/4/15. This contest is limited to the U.S. only...sorry. Leave a comment that are a subscriber with your e-mail address or you can e-mail me at

Happy Crafting, Kim

Craft Organization: Ink Pads

Hello Crafters,

I came across a wonderful idea and tutorial on how to organize ones ink pads. It is a label created by Kristina Werner of KWerner Design. And what is awesome is that she shares the labels in PDF form for free. Here is the link and I strongly encourage you to watch her tutorial.

I have a lot of the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads and used 'Blank Ink Labels - Short' and they fit perfectly. Here is a quick shot of what I have started.

Also, I am currently working on putting together the video tutorial for the Sunflower Box Card. I have not forgotten but it is taking me longer than I had expected. I am new to video editing but I will get faster.

Happy Crafting my Friend!

Sunflower Box Card

Hi Crafters! Here is my Summer project I created for the Aldina Rose group on Facebook. Since it is now August, I thought of late Summer for inspiration. And naturally sunflowers came to mind; they are my favorite. I also gave this to my mother as her birthday card.

Please, become a follower and e-mail to this subscriber to my blog. Why...I will be sharing directions and the Cricut Design Space file I used to create this box card this upcoming weekend.

The base I created from objects in the Craft Room cartridge. All items are free or in the subscription in Cricut Design Space. Please tell me what you think. I really appreciate your comments. All pictures belong to The Electric Poppy and Kimberly Sisco. You may share but please give credit.

For Cricut Design Space Users - Helpful Resource

I love the Cricut Design Space subscription but if you are like me knowing what is available can be challenging and overwhelming. I am sure most of you know that Cricut offers a library list of their subscription cartridges and images; this is in PDF format. I am sharing it here today as a helpful resource only. It is free on the Cricut website and you can click HERE to be taken to the Cricut website. I have saved this helpful resource to my computer and tablet for handy reference. Here are some pics of what is included in the PDF. I hope you find this useful. Happy Crafting!

Hot Air Balloon Redo

Hello Crafters! Have you ever made a project and were just not completely happy with it? Happens to me all the time. My last card was a perfect example. I was not happy with the background, the clouds, etc... It was not as I had imagined. So, I made a new card and I am much happier with the results. I added some extra clouds to create balance and heat embossing. Again, I used my Cricut Explore and Cricut Design Space to create this card. I share my Cricut Design Space link at the end of this post.

Hello my crafty friends. It is a cloudy, rainy day here in Southwest Missouri. So what is a girl to do...get crafty. I decided to make a card I have been thinking about for a while...a hot air balloon card. I used my Cricut Explore and Cricut Design Space to help me create this little card. At the end of this post I share the link to the Cricut Design Space file for this particular card. Also, I will be giving this card away...details at the end of this post.

Simple and Easy Cards #1

Hello Crafters,

I have been away for awhile due to changing jobs and going through extensive training for the last few months. But now I am finally making my way back to the craft room...Yea! I wanted to share some simple and easy cards I created recently. I love my Cricut die cutting machine but I am falling in love with fussy cutting. This is challenging to me so I have been practicing. Also, I am trying to come up with ideas to create simple and easy cards from simple supplies. And I want to share these ideas with you on this blog and on YouTube. So, I will be starting a series on these types of cards.

I am also excited to see my subscribers increasing. So when I reach 100 subscribers on my blog, and on YouTube I will be having.....Yes....a GIVEAWAY!!! So, share with your friends and fellow crafters.

Enough chatter - on with the cards.

This first card is a simple Hello card with a few elements that I fussy cut from a scrapbook paper. I used kraft cardstock for the base and rounded the corners. And the stamp 'hello' is from Heidi Swapp (a Heidi Swapp stamp set will be in a giveaway, see above).
