Exploring Cricut - Planes, Traines and Automobiles

Happy Monday.

This week our challenge at Exploring Cricut is called "Planes,Trains, and Automobiles"  You are to created a layout, card, or papercraft using any colors and any theme as long as it includes a means of transportation!

I know my daughter is going to have lots of birthdays to go to this year being in first grade.  She went to 8 in kindergarten!  So I figured I would get a jump on birthday cards.  I have seen this cut used a lot and figured it was time for me to finally use it.  :)  I think she came out pretty cute. 

Cart:  Hello Kitty and Elegant Edges (for base)

Exploring Cricut Daily Challenge

Happy Wednesday!

Sorry I am so late on posting today!  I am here now though!  ;)

Today's card was made for the mother of the little boy who was killed in an awful accident back in April.   It was her 40th birthday recently and I wanted to make her a special card.  The night of Jeffrey's memorial service for the town there was an awful rainstorm and out of it came the most beautifully stunning double rainbow!  I can never remember seeing any other rainbow so brilliantly bright.  Everything now associated with him deals with Rainbows.  So of course I needed to make her a rainbow card with her angel looking down on her for her birthday.

I used Hello Kitty for the cut.  I pop dotted an extra layer of all the cuts to give it more dimension.

A - U - N - T

Happy Monday! I hope everyone was crafty this weekend, because I wasn't! ;) It was too nice here this weekend and I spend some time outside with my kids, cleaned my store room, and went to two festivals. ;)

I made this for my aunt a few weeks ago. The idea came from Pinterest, another project checked off the Pinterest list! I bought the cardboard letters at Joanns. All the pictures were printed on computer paper at work so they are easier to mold, especially around corners. A few of the pictures are duplicated but I don't think my aunt really minded! I glued them all down with modge podge (I now love that stuff, never used it before) and then brushed another coat to seal it all in. Took some time, but it was totally worth it!

Exploring Cricut - New Challenge - Use a person

Happy Monday

This weeks challenge at Exploring Cricut we were to use any cut with a person on it. I hope scarecrows count! Close enough, right? ;) I have wanted to try a Spinner card for a while now. Seemed much harder to do than it actually turned out to be, but I think that how it is with most things with crafts! ;) Thanks to Glora for her wonderful tutorial which you can find here

Exploring Cricut Daily - See you soon Raccoon

Happy Wednesday Crafters,

Today card is for another person leaving our department at work. He is going to another department for 6 - 8 month project, but the way my company works it could be closer to a year. ;) He helped me pick out the preschool saying on the buffalo card I did a while ago, so I figured he needed one of those preschool sayings too, since he is supposed to be coming back to our dept.

Carts: Raccoon and cuts behind him from Create a Critter
Paper: SU and DCWV Guy Stack
Loopy Punch, inking, doodeling and wobble
Sentiment: Computer generated
