Spinner Card

My very first spinner card...and yes I'm loving them! When you tilt the card the bird spins from one side of the card to the next!
I used Create a Critter, Mini Monograms or a punch, and you can cut the card and hole by hand or use your gypsy with any cart that has a rectangle and adjust the size!
I also used Pink by design sentiment says..."Fluttering by to say hi"

If you hopped from Leinad's blog you are in the right place !!!!

I decided to make shirts for my girls. My daughter has been begging me for a shirt with a bug head on it so I finally made her one with my YUDU.

Below is a video on how I made this shirt using vinyl instead of the emulsion process. I also explain how you can use vinyl as a stencil for shirts if you dont have a YUDU.

Thanks sooo much for stopping by! Next on the Fantabulous Cricut Blog Hop is Robin's Super cute blog !!!! Enjoy~

Challenges and gifts !

I wanted to give a little treat to Candace (Paper crafts by Candace) and to Kim (Ricketts Cricuts) because we all got to meet yesturday for the first time !!! Heres a pic of us at dinner

So I made treat bags and incorporated 3 challenges into it.

Peachy Keen stamps- Needed to have a XOXO on the project. I used Peachy Keen Valentine stamps (the hearts and the sentiment) also the Princess set face stamp.

The other challenge was for the Circle blog, I needed at least 4 cuts. For this cute bag I used Sweethearts, Martha Stewart Elegant Cake, Wrap it Up, and Paisley cartridges.
The last challenge is to make a project with a bug at the creativecutter

I also used glossy accents, Bakers twine from the Twinery, a button and Stickles !
