May is here and flowers are in full bloom! This week at Fantabulous Cricut the challenge is Flower Shower! Stop on by the blog for some design team inspiration and to enter the challenge for this weeks giveaway!

I decided to try one of the popular flower pot cards. I like it, but wish I would have done a few things different.. like make the scalloped trim come down a bit more and maybe add some grass, lady, bee, etc.

The stamp sentiment is from My Craft Spot! Works perfect for this!

If you’d like to make one, I used SCAL basic shapes and the Forever Young Cricut cartridge!

Photobucket

In SCAL select the trapezoid shape. Uncheck ‘keep proportions’ and size to 5.00w x 4.276h. Cut two.

The scalloped trim is something I made awhile back by welding circles to a rectangle. The circles were sized to .60w and just weld to any size rectangle that will work!

The rectangle for the insert was cut to 3.00 x 4.00 and attached to a half circle sized 4.00w. This is what the back looks like after adhering them -

Photobucket

The flowers were all random cuts from Forever Young and several layers cut between 3.00″ and 1.00″. You just fold up the edges a bit and layer how you’d like! Very easy! I actually made this card pretty quickly!

You can’t really tell, but I also have some pop dots under the scalloped trim -

Photobucket

Next time, I will cut it a little longer so it shows better!

I think I will give this style card another go and try for more details, it was really fun to make!

I hope you like it!

Springy Treats

I made these for my daughter’s class party, as well as FCCB’s Design Team project for Challenge Me Monday! This week is to create something using a chick or a bunny!

I used the adorable animal files from SVG Cuts Cuddly Animals Collection! I love them! I had to make 26 of these so I did edit the bunny’s feet and also stamped the faces on instead! I wanted to add a ribbon with a stamped sentiment, but I ran out of time.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Cute, right? I got my little baggies on eBay by searching ‘M&M candy bags’. It was 100 for like, $6.00! You can fit jelly beans inside them too! Mmm!

The animals are cut to 2.5″ high. I just glued them on with a low temp hot glue gun! Voila’.. Simple treats for the class party!

Bunny-licious.

So, while I was busy making my design team project for Fantabulous Cricut I got sidetracked when I remembered a kit I saw LAST year. It was a kit with little cups and precut ears, nose, etc. to glue on and make a bunny container. I started to brainstorm and decided to whip one up real quick. This took me no time at all to put together once I cut my pieces. So fun and simple.. I can totally see making a pleathora of these just because I can whip them out so fast! You know the saying ‘Multiply like rabbits..” LOL!

Here is today’s paper cuteness!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Best of all.. I used Sure Cuts a Lot basic shapes.. that’s it!

Here’s how:

 

You will need Sure Cuts a Lot.. not sure if Make The Cut has a basic shapes library? If you use Cricut design studio, I am sure you can figure this out with some cartridge shaes! Heck, you could even cut shapes out by hand, folks! *high five* You will also need a container of some sort. I used a breadcrumb container so the cut sizes I give you are going by that.

First, cut your container down to about 3″ tall.

Photobucket

Hmm, I have a sudden craving for chicken parmesean!

Anyhow.. cut a piece of paper 3.5″ high and 11″ wide. Wrap it around the container gluing as you go. I used hot glue… and I burnt myself.. and my glue gun got stuck to my comfy velour pants. Yes, I am totally messy and spazzy (is that a word? LOL!) when I craft…

…… and yes, I wear velour pants. They’re comfy, Mmm-kay?!

Moving on…

Did you cut your paper yet?.. Get on it!

Photobucket

Ink up the edges if you want.. I think it really helps the project stand out a bit more. Plain ol’ white was a little boring.

Cut and assemble -

ALL SHAPES CAN BE FOUND IN THE SCAL LIBRARY UNDER ‘BASIC SHAPES’

Ears: Oval shape, uncheck ‘keep proportions’ size 2 ovals at 4.00h and 1.50w. The inside of the ears are 2.730h and 1.00w.

Nose: Rounded heart shape, uncheck ‘keep proportions’ size at 1.715w and 1.097h.

Bow: Rounded square shape, uncheck ‘keep proportions’ size at 4.00w and 1.50h. Kinda crinkle it in the middle a bit. Cut a piece of paper at half an inch wide and 1.5″ long. This will wrap around the crinkled part of the bow.

Eyes: Two ovals, uncheck ‘keep proportions’ size one at .3355 and .500h. Size the other at .291w and .433h. I used my white ink pen to add a catchlight in the eye. Glossy accents over the eyes will look great!

For the whiskars I just cut thin strips with my scissors… crinkle them up and glue them on!

To create pink cheeks, use your ink pad or dab some ink on a Q-tip and rub it on. You can also use paper chalk.

I am thinking of having my girls make one for each of their teachers and I will fill them with some yummy cookies! It’s the perfect size to stack cookies in.

Annnnd.. I really need to do a post with some questions answered and other random things I’ve been meaning to post. Maybe today? I promise I’m not ignoring all your emails and comment questions.. OK.. maybe YOUR’S! lol j/k. I’m really not that mean… really. OK.. I have nothing to do tonight.. soooo.. I will be back with a long rambling post for you all that have been waiting to hear back from me.

And can I just whine a minute?.. Of course I can.. it’s my blog.. neener-neener!

It’s snowing.. again! I kid you not, we’ve gotten more snow since ‘spring’ started than we have all winter! Ok.. maybe not.. but it’s really close to it! I am beyond ready for warmer weather… only because I have some darling dresses and sandals I am dying to put on my girls! LOL! Go away snow!!

Toodles!

Bunny Cuteness!

I just LOVE the cute Spring Bunnies SVG Collection over at svgcuts.com! I knew the moment it came out I had to create something with them! I made a few things.. Some cute egg wrappers, gift boxes (bunny and a carrot) and also a cute little bunny basket! I really had fun with this collection! You can see some more pictures and all the details RIGHT HERE

Here are a few more pictures!

I have a few projects to work on this weekend.. one being a Design Team project for Right At Home Scrapbooking! I’m not 100% set on what I will be making for them yet, but it will be cute.. of course! :)

Alrighty crafty friends! Talk to you soon! I would love it you would ‘like’ this post to share it on Facebook!

Simple little door hanger to brighten up a sick kiddo’s day!

I am sure you’ve seen my posts on my blog and Facebook with me whining about being sick. Well, my oldest caught the germs! She was the only one who didn’t get sick and I thought she was in the clear. Nope… she woke up this morning with a low fever and headache. She’s been home in bed all day. I thought I would make her a little door hanger to try and cheer her up! I whipped this up super quick while she was napping so it’s not all decorated how I normally would have liked to do.. but it works. :)

I don’t care for the pale yellow on the butterfly’s body, but it was too late to try and fix it… plus I was being lazy about it, LOL!

Photobucket

Cute though! And very easy.. we all love easy, right? You could also make something like this with SVG files if you don’t use cartridges.. or don’t have all of these. I chose to use cartridges just so I can put it out quickly with my Gypsy.

Wanna make one? You need about 20-30 minutes, some cute paper and glue!

 

Cartridges Used :

Tags, bags, boxes and more : Create a Critter : Straight From The Nest : Paper Dolls

 

DO THIS :

Cut the flower from SFTN at 5.25h Use a circle shape punch for the hole OR use your Cricut to cut one. You can also weld a hole on it through the Gypsy.

The stem is cut at 11″h. You will cut two. Make sure you flip one of them if you are using patterned paper (press FLIP on your Cricut). Layer these between a popsicle stick for support (you can layer them without a stick, I think it would be strong enough!) Trim about 3″ off the bottom.

The box is from TBB&M. Cut this at about 11″ wide. I used the giftbag on blackout (so there are no holes) and then I trimmed the handles off. Glue the stem onto the back center.

The fence is cut from Paper Dolls at 1 3/4″h. I trimmed it to fit the front of my box.

Then cut the CaC butterfly at 2.25″h.

Have fun with this! Add a cute animal, etc.! I wish I had more time to play around.. maybe I will make another soon? This would be cute to stitch around the flowers with a sewing machine. :)

It would be really cute to write or stamp something inside the lollipop cover! I got the idea to do this from a design team friend of mine, Amy.. she made THESE for Valentine’s day! Aren’t those so cute?!

Anyhow, I hope you like the little lollipop bouquet! Enjoy!

 

Summer Fun! 27 inches of paper cuteness!

Photobucket

It’s funny how a little idea… scribbled down on a scrap piece of paper while you’re waiting for dinner to cook… turns into something totally awesome!

About a week ago I thought of a cute little table decoration to make since my LAST ONE was such a huge hit! I figured something with pinwheels, maybe some flowers and animals..

Photobucket

……. And of course it had to be bigger than my last one! I mean, I have to keep you all excited, right? Plus, I love a challenge! I decided to skip using animals and think of some other little things that reminded me of summer. I started with one little section and that had another section added on.. and so on.. and then I ended up with this…..

Photobucket

Bright… cheery.. FUN! It came out sooo cute and I feel like my pictures do not truly show it’s greatness! Did I mention it’s about 14″ tall and 27″ long?

Here are some close ups for ya!

OK… seriously.. How is that NOT awesome!? Maybe it’s a bit much for some people, but it makes me smile and look forward to summer! Tire swings, beautiful days, watermelon.. Mmmmmm!

I didn’t plan on finishing it so soon, but I decided to enter it in the Fantabulous Cricut Blog Challenge!  The challenge is to make something that features your favorite season.. Now, I won’t say summer is my favorite.. but since I was already making this project I figured I could pretend it’s my favorite for a week, LOL!

*fingers crossed* I would love to win!

Would you like to tackle something like this? I will tell you sizes and describe it the best I can.. and you can wing it from there. I mentioned on my FACEBOOK PAGE that I bought a Flip camcorder! Hopefully that will make it easier for everyone! I can make step by step videos of my projects! YAY!

Alrighty.. let’s get Cricut-ing!

 

Paper Used – A mix of Echo Park Little Girl and Sweet Summertime! Both are such pretty collections! I used a mix of DCWV and AC solids. The tree’s green dot paper is Echo Park’s Little Boy.

Carts Used – Create a Critter, Simply Charmed, Paper Dolls, Straight From The Nest

SVG’s Used – Pinwheel was a free file I found somewhere. I don’t remember where exactly but I saw a few from searching the web!

I used SVGCUTS.COM collections – Beach Bum collection3 and the balloon shape from CRUSH ON YOU BOXES

Misc. items – Twine from THE TWINERY , buttons, dowel rods, hot glue, toothpicks and popsicle sticks. Also some styrofoam.. I get mine at the dollar store!

My styrofoam pieces were 4×4″ squares. I cut about 1/4th of it off. Do this to two squares. The two taller pieces go on the sides. The smaller ones go in the middle. The side piece with the tree is cut at 2×4″. Hot glue the strofoam all together to create your base.

Cuts several pieces of grass. I cut five at 4 3/4 (SFTN cart) Cut to fit around edges. I also added some here and there to fill in the middle.

My pinwheel is cut at 5″.

I took some square SVG’s and welded half circle to it to make scalloped edges. This was done in SCAL. Cut them 4×4.5″. These are the taller styrofoam pieces ‘box’ You will need 3 sides for each.

The hot air balloon was played with a bit. I broke it apart in SCAL and removed the shapes. I cut two of them and layered to make it different colors. The banner and flowers are in your SCAL library. Flowers cut at .75″ and the banner is 4″ wide. The balloon is from SVG Cuts and cut at 3.535 wide.

The dowel rods holding up the pinwheel and balloon have twine wrapped around them.

The tree will have a popsicle stick on the back for support. Cut the tree from SFTN cart. This is cut at 7″. The branch will be cut at 2 1/4. I used a toothpick behind it for support. Glue it to the tree.

The sun is held up by 20g jewelry wire. I twisted it around a pencil to create a spiral. The sun is created with a SCAL rectangle sized to 11x 1 1/4″. Score/fold at .5″, cut two. Smash it flat to create the crinkled circle shape. Center is a SCAL shape cut at 2″.

The pennants are two SCAL shape rectangles welded together. Fold them over the wine and glue. I used the Sweet Summertime stickers.

OTHER RANDOM CUTS -

Fence – Paper Doll cart – 2 1/2 – cut in half.

Wagon – CAC cart – 1 1/4″

Tulip – CAC cart – 3 1/2″ – Use a toothpick glued to the back for support.

Bucket and shovel – SVG Cuts beach bum file – Cut at 1 1/2″ high

Tire swing – CAC cart (wagon tires) – press ‘real dial size’ on your Cricut and cut at 1 3/4″ – You will use both of these with a piece of 3d sticky foam of glue dot bwtween for a 3d look. Tie it to twine.

Cloud by the tree – SCAL shape – 3″w

Ball – Simply Charmed cart – 1 1/2″

Watermelon – Simply Charmed – 3/4″

Emboss for texture and add 3d glue dots/foam for depth. Chalk/ink edges. And the most important thing to remember…. hot glue is your friend! LOL!

 

That’s it! I really wish I would have taken photos as I put it together.. I’m sorry, but I do hope this inspires some of you to create a cute table decoration! Enjoy and as always, thanks for coming by!

 

 

4 cartridges….. One super cute little table decoration!

…….. Now, before I show you pictures of my newest project I have to say hello to ALL my new followers and Facebook friends! I logged into my email to a bunch of blog comments, new followers and my Facebook ‘likes’ grew overnight. I was wondering what the heck happened. So, I logged into my blog to see nearly 4000 hits *thud*……

“I’m under attack!!!!!!!!!!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!”

LOL!

One of my commenters said she found me from the Cricut newsletter.. say what?! After doing some poking around, there I was! In the ‘Cricut Chirp’ with MY photo shown with a link to one of my message board posts (I shared my valentine boxes) I couldn’t believe it! Little ol’ me.. CHECK IT OUT!

Tee-hee… I’m a soupa-star, baby! lol j/k….

 

Anyhow… want to see my super-dooper cute spring table decoration?! Yes, I know.. spring? What the hey?! Aren’t we in the midde of winter? Why yes, yes we are. BUT, I was getting tired of Valentine’s projects.. Well, that was until SVG Cuts released THIS collection.. (Cute, right?! Of course! I mean, how can you look at that and not want to make all 3 of them?) But yeah.. where was I going with this?… Um.

Ah yes, I was tired of Valentine’s projects so I decided to do something springy and cute with some of my favorite paper from Echo Park.

Carts Used – Forever Young (FY) : Create a Critter (CaC) : Straight From The Nest (SFTN) :Tags, bags, boxes and more (TBB&M).

Paper used – Echo Park (LOVE!) Collection : Walk in the Park.

Items Needed – 3d glue dots, chalk or ink, a popsicle stick, styrofoam squares, toothpicks, 20 gauge jewelry wire (I used blue), hot glue, buttons, paper thread (found in the jewelry making section at Joanns)

Here are the cuts I used. I hope I got them all..

Box – (TBB&M) : 5 3/4″ I like to seal my boxes with Wonder Tape.

Grass (SFTN) : 2 3/4″ (Cut 8. You will cut them to fit around the styrofoam and inside a bit for more of a 3D look) Chalk/Ink the edges in a darker green.

Flower (FY) 3″ and cut circles at 1 1/4″ x5 These will be curled and make into petals. It helps to hot glue them.

Photobucket

The yellow circle will be cut at 1″. Attach a button.

Snail (CaC) : 1 1/4″

Caterpillar (CaC) : 1 3/4″

Hive (CaC) : 2 1/4″

Butterfly (CaC) : 1 3/4″

Frog (CaC) : 2″

Dragonfly (CaC) : 1 1/4″

Bird House (CaC) : – 2 1/2″

Sun (CaC) : 2 1/2″

Kite (CaC) : 3.5 or 4″ I didn’t write it down and I forgot.

Cloud (CaC) : (forgot size) and the text on the cloud was cut in SCAL.

Stem/leaves of the flower : Use a popsicle stick and hot glue paper to it. I cut my leaves in SCAL but you can just free hand cut 2 ovals.

Photobucket

When sticking your items into the styrofoam I used toothpicks (green to match the grass better) and a bit of hot glue so they stay put!

Make your box first and then attach the styrofoam with hot glue. Use two 2×4″ squares and cut them in half. You will also need to trim the side down a little.

I hope you love this little project as much as I do! Please share my blog with your crafty friends and of course, join my Facebook page!! PRETTY PLEASE?

Thanks for coming by!

Toodles!
