Smiley Cards Mini Blog Hop !!!

Crazy about Cricut had an idea late last night about doing a mini blog hop this morning, with cuts from the new Gypsy download....(you have till tomorrow to register your gypsy for this exclusive download!)
This is a quick card from Smiley Cards. Most of these images have faces on them, but I "hid" the face so I could use my new Peachy Keen Laughfy Taffy stamps! Also used was Pink Cricut stamp for the sentiment. Enjoy~
Next hop on over to CARA !!!
**** I will be giving out a prize..not sure what yet but leave me a comment to be entered ****

Upcoming Class !!!

So the next Cricut class will be Saturday November 13 th !!!

We will be making a "Give Thanks" bucket. You can have people write what they are thankful for and put it in the bucket, then you can read them at Thanksgiving dinner or keep them till the following Thanksgiving and see what people wrote!

I have designed the bucket with vellum so you can also put a flameless candle inside of it, If you dont want to use the idea above.

During this class we will learn inking, what Peachy Keen Stamps are and how to use them, and using the Cuttlebug.

We will ALSO be making a Christmas ornament pics coming soon.

This is a few pictures of the bucket we will also decorate the lid and install a handle on the top!

If you live in Northern California and are interested please email me for full details

Getting ready for Halloween !!!

Everyone ready for Halloween? This week over at the Fantabulous Cricut were all about Halloween. Its not to late to make something special!

These were actually made by my 5 year old. She absolutely LOVES to make stuff with mom. I helped her with gluing the teeth but other than that for the most part she did it all! We made 52 in all. They are for the kids in her class, friends and family.

So how you can make your own? The Sixlets were purchased at the dollar store. The pumpkin was cut from Mini Monsters then I cut an extra pumpkin hiding all the cut lines for the back. We used glue dots to attach the sixlets before adding the back.

This is endless you could make these for a birthday and use a cupcake instead of a pumpkin, or whatever theme you choose !!!!! Enjoy~

Imagine and Regular cartridge card

HI ! I wanted to try my Imagine with a regular Cricut cartridge. I chose Wall Decor for the pear, then used the pattern paper on the Imagine Nursery Rhymes to get the cute pattern. I also used Lacy Labels to cut the scallops. I used the Imagine on the "cut only" option and used colored paper (and white).

On the white scalloped oval I used Divine Swirls embossing folder then enhanced it with Stickles.

This weeks challenge at My Creative Time is to create something with the Imagine and stamp a sentiment on it.

So I used MPS stamps on the inside for the sentiment and a Martha Stewart punch for the borders. This was made for my in-laws Anniversary!

Enjoy~ michelle

Vinyl for a Store

SOOOO the children's store that I'm making cards for ...the owner wants me to do some vinyl for her walls.

She requested these images in black and purple colors, so this is what I came up with. I will have to take pictures again when its up on the wall ☺

Everything was cut with New Arrival and Plantin Schoolbook. I did create the "blocks" by altering some of the image with my gypsy, its actually 3 blocks in each block to get the cuts in them! The blocks are 11 3/4 x 11 3/4. The airplane and truck are even bigger!

Bake and Decorate Challenge

This weeks challenge at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is Bake and Decorate!

I have been wanting to try out the Cupcake Wrapper cartridge, so this was the perfect time!

The only problem was my cupcake was a short fat cupcake, so it didn't fit perfectly so I recommend sticking to regular size cupcake wrappers ☺
