Challenge Me Monday #112

Hello Everyone,

Well it is time over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog for another challenge.

Create a graduation project.
 Remember to have at lease one cricut cut and please let us know what cartridge you used.

Here is my project:
I made 2 of these wallets and they are for the 2 senior co-editors of our high school yearbook.(Our colors are blue, gold and white) I thought this was the perfect gift for them (one male and one female). They are great students and have put a lot of time and effort into this. If you have ever done this before you know it is a great big undertaking. I love every minute of it. 
I cut the wallet out of card stock 6 3/4 x 10 1/4 and scored at the 2 1/2 and 6 1/2. The white cs is also cut that size and I used a Martha Stewart punch on it. The flap is cut 1 1/2 x 6 1/2 and is attached with velcro.
Inside I hid a camera and there are 2 mini books inside for pictures. I will be starting it off with some pictures I have taken. Prom was last week and I got a few pictures of that and probably graduation I will get some.

Here is the girly version

Cartridges used on blue, gold and white:

CHS - Babysteps cut 1.25"
Graduation hat - Locker Talk cut 1.25"
Camera - Locker Talk cut 1.5"
2012 - George and Basic Shapes cut 1"
class of - Gypsy font cut 1"

I also used my 1/2" corner rounder crop-a-dile and I used magnets on the mini books.

Thanks for stopping by and check out the other projects from the Design Team at FCCB. Once you check them out go ahead a create a project and link it up. Don't forget to include at least one cricut cut.

I am also entering this in the Cricut Creative Cutter Room Challenge - Graduation - Challenge runs May 17 - 30

Wedding Towel Cake

Hello Everyone,

I went to a wedding shower this weekend for a friends daughter. She was registered at Wal mart but if you have ever tried to figure out what they exactly want from that print out you are doing good. The sale person was helping me and she didn't know either. So I bought towels in the colors it looked like she wanted to make my cake. I haven't had that much trouble from other stores in the past with gift registry.  I also bought a platter for the cake and after they take it apart I am sure they will find a use for it.  Also she can save some of the images I cut out and use them in scrapbooking later.Here are just a few of the pictures I took to share.
  I am entering this in a challenge.

This show only the top 2 layers, the bottom picture has the 3rd layer.

I used the sweethearts cricut cartridge for most of the images, MCT (My Creative Time) flower dies for the flowers and Martha Stewart punch for the edges.

I also created a video on how assembled the cake and here it it. The cake took 2 regular towels and 2 hand towels.

I am entering this in a challenge at: diecuttindivas

Challenge Me Monday #110

Hello Everyone,

It is time again for Challenge Me Monday Over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.

 #110 for May 7th  - Mother's Day
Make a project for your Mother, Grandmother or another special lady in your life using her favorite color. (ex. Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, etc.)

Here is my project:

 My card is 5 1/2 square. I used the Teresa Collins Timeless paper collection.  When I bought this I didn't know what I was going to use it for but had to buy it.  Well, this was the perfect challenge for this because my mom and I love pink and when I was growing up we both liked pink and gray. I remember buying some gray pants and wearing pink shirts with them. That is why I chose this paper collection for the card. Now for the details: used my gypsy because I had to hide some cuts. I used Elegant edges for the frame in pink cut at 4". Forever young for the girl head cut at 3.25. The gray scallop was cut from Gypsy Wanderings  3.60w and 2.75h.  The silver paper is from Michael's and the ribbon from Hobby Lobby.  I used two new flower dies from My Creative Time and also used her stitched circle die and her Happy Mother's Day stamp from All around everything. I finished the card off by using my i-rock.

I am also entering my card in the following challenges:
