The Challenge: Use your Cricut machines to create a project using the following “recipe.” It must contain 1) A Title; 2) At least 2 Cricut Cuts, and 3) At least 3 buttons.
Here's my layout submission for the Challenge. The brown cardstock to the right of the picture is where I will put my journaling for the layout. Last school year the teacher sent home a family project to decorate a cookie jar - I pulled out all of my scrapbooking items and my daughter had so much fun! It was my husband's idea to take a picture of her hand and add it "reaching" into the cookie jar - it turned out so great!
The Challenge: For this next challenge, we want to see you show off your card-making skills in honor of World Card-Making Day (October 1st). The requirements are simple . . . create a card with any theme you would like using your Cricut machines! Need to include at least 2 Cricut image cuts.
Here's my entry. I love this hippo he/she is sooo cute! My 2 image cuts are the hippo and the pond with the grasses. Patterned paper is DCWV.
The Challenge: Create a project of your choice using the sketch below. Your project must include at least 2 different Cricut Image Cuts.
It took me a little while to decide on just one idea for this card from the many I was coming up with. In the end, I decided that I really wanted to use the Simply Scarecrow cartridge I just purchased a few weeks ago. The scarecrow, crows and sentiment are all from this cartridge. All of the patterned paper is from DCWV Amber Autumn Stack.
The Challenge: Create a project of your choice with one or more of the Cricut Circle Exclusive cartridges! (French Manor, Shall We Dance, Cricut Everyday, Pop-Up Neighborhood, or Sophie) Your project must include at least 2 different Cricut Image Cuts. And YES! You can mix in other cartridges with your Circle Exclusive cartridges.
For this challenge, I chose to use the Sophie Cricut Cartridge for all 3 of my images.
After many long days and much preparation, I'm thrilled to announce that we raised a LOT of money for JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). Everyone had a great time at our Peace, Love, Cure Carnival. Now on to planning for next year - and hopefully more time for me to be crafty and post some new projects!
I hope to get back to some serious crafting real soon. I've been a little out of it after my 4 wisdom teeth were extracted a little over a week ago and I developed dry sockets - not to mention an extremely busy work schedule and coordinating my department's Juvenile Diabetes fundraising carnival. This is my fourth year as captain and although it takes a lot of work, it is well worth it.
In the next few weeks, things should get a little easier for me at work and today the oral surgeon said my extractions were looking good (hopefully they will heal the next week), so I may finally feel like being crafty. Of course, I have done a little crafting, I'm still making the backpack notes for my daughter every night - she loves them so much and would be so disappointed if I missed a day.
I hope to have a project to share real soon. Until then, take care everyone.
Welcome to my blog! Some of my visitors may know me better by the MB name Phantom Rink Rat. I came up with this name since I'm a figure skater who has spent a lot of time in ice rinks and my very first competition song was from Phantom of the Opera :o) I created a blog to challenge myself and to create a fun place for me to share my scrapbook layouts and cards (and some pictures of happenings in my life).
