Important~ Major Announcement About My Blog & Name

The name "Terri Tv" has been a very temporary generic name that I used to get my blog started up. I have been quietly setting up a new domain name, email addresses, facebook, myspace and the whole works with my new business name. The new name to this blog and my new card making website will now be
"Two Pink Peas"!
I now own www.twopinkpeas.com and am now in the beginning stages of setting up and designing it. It will be a little while before I get everything together like the logo, designs and more importantly the content. I am very excited about this new name and what may come in the near future for Two Pink Peas

 Currently, I am  looking at different designers for art work, logos and everything else that I will need for my new website and for this blog. Anyone interested in designing for me can leave a comment here with a way for me to get a hold of you and I will get back to you right away. This is going to be a quite a process to get everything right before I launch twopinkpeas.com but I am really excited to be announcing it to you. Also, I do have the blog name www.twopinkpeas.blogspot.com and am currently configuring everything and getting it switched over as we speak. Twopinkpeas.blogspot.com is virtually the same blog as Terri Tv for right now until I get my design all finished. If you all could start visiting twopinkpeas.blogspot.com and getting used to going there instead of here I would really appreciate it.   I want to thank you all in advance for your patience and understanding while I switch everything around.
 I hope that you will continue to follow me and my blog as I grow in this new business adventure.
I have very exciting things coming in the near future for
Two Pink Peas.
Anyhow, I would LOVE to know how all of you like this name "Two Pink Peas".. It's pretty darn cute, isn't? ~Terri

Don't Forget To Update Your Gypsy For Free Cartridges!

 November 1st was the day that you could download your free Cricut Cartridges. It took me several hours of trying to get it to download due to glitches or something in their system.  After trying and trying I finally got it to download. It was about 1 in the morning.  First I had to upgrade the Gypsy software, which only took a few minutes. After that it automatically downloaded the free cartridges. 

 My first post-surgery card will be something made from either the Smiley cartridge or the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More. I will post that the second I get done with it I will post it right here. I have a few cute clever ideas going on in my mind right now. 

After you download your  upgraded software  and your free cartridges and you make your first card and if you want to share it I would love to see them, all of them! 

So if you have not upgraded your software and downloaded your cartridges head on over to www.cricut.com and grab your freebies. Don't let this one pass you by. I do not know how long it will be available. It is possible that it will be available forever, I am not sure.

Thanks for stopping by.  Come back soon and I will talk to you soon! ~Terri

What Are Printable/Digital Stamps & How To Use Them!

Printable stamps are images or sentiments in high resolution.  Unlike regular stamps that cannot be sized or changed, these printable stamps can be.  They can be sized and resized to fit your individual needs. Changing the size will not change the image quality what so ever. You simply print them out and they can be used for card making, scrapbooking, home decor and anything you can imagine. Your imagination is the sky with these. Use chalk, ink or markers to add dimension and that creative touch when adding to cards or scrapbooking pages. Some of the images and sentiments are in color so you will be able to print those out on a color printer.  I hope this helped describe what digital/printable stamps are and if you have not used them before they are a great addition to your paper crafting. If you have any questions about these or any other products please let me know and I will get back to you as soon as I can.  ~Terri

Halloween Treat Bags.. CUTE!!!


Today has been very busy for me. I wanted to make a few cards but did not get a chance to. I was out getting my 11 year old son Casey's halloween costume. Anyhow, I was thinking about what type of treat bags I was going to make for Casey and my 9 year old daughter Hallie's school class.  Every holiday I always make treat bags but wanted something a little different and cuter.
I came up with this. I used Martha Stewarts Drippy Goo punch for the edge of this tag that says Happy Halloween. 
 I thought they turned out really cute. Now I only have to make 60 more..lol. I hope this gave you some idea on how you want to make your child's treat bags. Maybe you don't have kids and you just want to make goodie bags to pass out on halloween. This would be adorable. Oh, the little clear bags I got at Walmart. They were so cheap, only $2.00 for 100 of them..I think it is 100. Anyhow, they are super cheap but there is so much you can do with them. I would LOVE to see your finished treat bags. Leave me a comment and tell me where I can go to see them and I will leave you a comment back.
Thank you for looking and come back soon.

Boy Did I Hit The Jackpot Today... WOW!!!

Today I was out and about and I decided to stop at Big Lots. I have not been there in years. So I go in and first stop at the halloween candy, which I needed. So I got alot of candy, little toys for all the trick or treaters. Then I went to the scrapbook isle and man..there were soooooo many great deals. I am talking Martha Stewart ribbon for $1.00..most of them were only $.50 so I got them ALL. I spent $30.00 on scrapbooking/card supplies and I got about 38 rolls of ribbon. Not all of them are Martha Stewart, just a few of them are. But still.. what a great deal. Then I looked at the paper and cardstock. They were so cheap and I plan on going back again soon. Here is 2 pictures of my loot. Oh, and I got 4 fiber yarn rolls for $1.00 each. What a crazy deal. I would run, run and run to your local Big Lots to see what they have. I even got some alphabet stamps, a glitter patterned paper stack, 12 x 12 paper stack and another 12 x 12 blue paper stack, some embellishments and more. Anyhow, just wanted to share.  Thanks for looking! Come back soon. I add something each and every day.

Grown Up Classy Pumpkin Card

I wanted to make a grown up classy pumpkin for the holidays and so I looked through my
Mini Monsters Cartridge and found this adorable pumpkin. So here is the Pumpkin Card that I just made.. yes, it is 1:35 am and I am still up making cards.. :o)
This is what you need to make this beautiful pumpkin card.
I love it because it is different from a normal looking orange pumpkin...the paper is just beautiful.
It is flocked and is very heavy duty. I had to put my blade depth at 6, pressure at max and I still
had a time getting it off the mat.

Materials Needed:

Mini Monsters Cricut Cartridge
Die Cuts With A View La Creme Stack Pack
Die Cuts With A View Latte Cardstock Pack in Green
 (it looks like wood)
Cuttlebug & Embossing Folder

This finished card will cut out at 7" on your cricut
The pumpkin is on page 60 in the Mini Monsters Handbook
Cut out the Pumpkin in the Card Feature in Black Cardstock from DCWV
Cut out the front part of the card using Layer 1 and using DCWV Patterned Cardstock
Cut out the Stem and Leaf using the Layer 1 feature and hit Shift
Run the Stem & Leaf through the Cuttlebug
That's it for this card, it is so simple..just adhere it all together and you are done!

Life Is Tweet Card


This is a little card that I just got done making. It turned out so cute. Here is what you need to make it.

Straight From The Nest Cricut Cartridge
Polka Dot Cardstock from Premium Stacks Latte Stack Textured Cardstock
Dark Purple Cardstock from Premium Stacks Latte Stack Textured Cardstock
Green Cardstock
Off White Cardstock
Black Cardstock
Brown Cardstock
Pebbles Chalk in Earth Tones

The Bird is on page 28 in the manual
I cut out the Bird at size 2 1/2"
The "Life is Tweet" is cut out at 1 1/2" in the Off White
Hit the Phrase Shadow button and cut the phrase out
again in Green Cardstock
The first bird cut is <Bird1-s> which you have to hit shift
Then I cut out the Wing at 2 1/2" and chalked the edges
Then I cut out the Bird using the Layer/Shadow feature
in a Brown Cardstock
The Cardstock is measured at 2" x 5 1/4" for both the
polka dot and purple
(I cut them both that size and took the ribbon to hide the seams)
Take your Grosgrain Ribbon in a Country Green and hide
the seams of the cardstock
Use your pop dots to adhere the bird on your card after
 placing the ribbon
Then glue your phrases together and adhere them to the card
Chalk all the edges of your bird, wing, beak and bird
 legs for dimension
Viola, that's it! It was a simple yet cute and fun card to make.

Cricut Cartridges..My Complete List

Below is a list of all the Cricut cartridges that I currently own...
New cartridges are being added all the time.
As you all know craft supplies can be quite expensive especially these cartridges
so finding amazing deals is how I save money. I NEVER spend more then $15.00 on a Cricut cartridge, even if it is a brand new release or even a retired cartridge. There is one place that is my go to place when purchasing cartridges and if you are interested in learning how I save so much money leave me a comment and I will reveal my secret shopping spot. Well it's not a secret per se' but you know what I mean! <wink> Honestly I cannot tell you how many times I have bought a brand new cartridge and literally spent less then $5.00 and every single one was brand spanking new still in the clam shell. Sounds impossible doesn't it? Well I am here to tell you that it is not impossible. Not at all!

Have you all wondered what a Cricut cartridge looks like on the inside? I know that I have wondered that myself so I found a photo that shows what is going on inside...
Pretty neat...right??
I hope you all found this as interesting as I did!
Thank you for stopping by today and if you would like to know how I save money when purchasing these cartridges leave me a comment below. How do you save money when buying cartridges or craft supplies? For me it is alot of fun to save money when purchasing a cartridge, great craft supplies, or anything actually, and use that saved money on something else!
As always...Have a fabulous day & Big Cricut Hugs to you all ....
