Challenge Me Monday #121

Hello Everyone,

Well it is Monday already and time for another Challenge Me Monday over at the FANTABULOUS CRICUT CHALLENGE BLOG. Today we have a really fun challenge, Wedding Bliss. Make a project for a special couple (Wedding, Anniversary). I made a project for a shower. I took a paint can and decorated it. I made this for a friend that is giving the shower. She is going to fill it with a cute Newlywed poem that was found on the internet. Example ( A lollipop - to help you lick your problems no matter how many there may be. A rubber band - to help you remember to be "flexible" in all things.A lifesaver - to keep you from drowning in everyday problems and 17 more.) By the way thanks to Anita for working with me on this project.

Here is my project:

I covered the paint can in white cardstock. I cut the top circle with the George Cartridge at 5.35."  I used the Plantin Schoolbook for the font (Kristin and Matt) welded it together on a curve. Also the heart which was cut at 4". The bride and groom were cut from the Sweethearts Cartridge and cut at 3".  The leaves were cut from the Flower Shoppe at 1.25." I used MCT rolled flower dies to create the flowers. I used beads, tulle, black ribbon and lace purchased from Hobby Lobby. Now I am so excited to see what you can create for this challenge. Once you create a project link it up to so we can all be inspired. Don't forget to include at lease one cricut cut.

Happy Crafting,

Bow Wow Cake with the Cricut

Hello Everyone,
Today I am showing you a diaper cake I made for my Nephew and his Wife. I used several cricut cartridges but the main 2 were Create a Critter and Sports Mania. They have on their registry the Lambs and Ivy Bow Wow collection. This is how I decide exactly how to decorate the cakes. I get my gypsy out and start searching for images I can use at look similar to the collection.  Each image is put on with mini glue dots so they are easy to take off when the cake is taken apart. I tell the mothers to save all the images even if they don't scrapbook, they may at a later date. Also they could decorate a frame with some images and etc. Well I made a video and also I have pics. Hope you enjoy.

Here is my video:

Challenge Me Monday #120

Hello Everyone,

Well it is time for another Challenge Me Monday over at the FANTABULOUS CRICUT CHALLENGE BLOG. Today the challenge is Sunny Days. Make a project using a yellow sun. I hope you join us on this challenge it was lots of fun. Now for my project:

Have fun in the Sun! I started this off with a shaped card from the Wild Card Cartridge, which I cut at 5". The sun came from the Just Because Cards Cartridge. The umbrella, flips and surf board from the Life is a Beach Cartridge.  Finally the inter tube, lounge chair and beach bag was cut from the Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridge.  The sentiment is from the Have fun in the sun MCT Stamp set. To create the sand I tore paper and used my two way glue pen to adhere Ultra fine Flower Soft in the sand color. I also used my copic BG0000 for the sky, the white didn't get it.
If you haven't checked out the rest of the design team head on over I am sure you will be inspired. I can't wait to see what you create.

Happy Crafting,
