Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #3

Challenge #3- "Bling It On" create a project using shine, jewels, glitter etc.. I used glitter on the butterfly and the flowers. I used pearls down the center of the butterfly. The butterfly is from Stamping Solutions. This is wrapped around a large hershey bar. Great way to decorate those plain hershey bars and give them as gifts for thank you's or easter or whatever!

Thanks for looking! :) Make sure to check out everyone's projects over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challege blog here..

Since I was on vacation I was unable to post my picture for challenge #2. I will post challenge #3 in a different post.

Challenge #2- To create a Easter themed project using pastel colors. I came up with this easter card. I used Easter Solutions for grass and the chick with the bow. The wording next to the chick says "You're my peep".

Pop Rock Creations

A lady at work asked me to create some thank you recognition type gifts. I came up with these "You Rock" creations. The same lady said a friend/co-worker was turning 40 and wanted a fun gifty type item for her desk. I created the "40 rocks" basket for her.

"You Rock". I made the basket from the sweet treats cartridge. The guitars are from Stamping Solutions, font is Don Juan and the stars are from Hannah Montana. The basket was cut at 11 inches and the guitars are 5 1/2 inches tall.

"40 Rocks" The font is Don Juan and the stars are from multiple cartridges. 40 is cut 5 inches tall. I welded ROCKS together on my gypsy.

Thanks for looking! :)

Baby Shower Favor's - Done!

My sister in law and I finished lots of baby shower stuff today. We made a cute "It's A Girl" banner, and items for games. I will post pictures of all that stuff after the shower (april 3rd).

Here is a picture of the finished favors. Inside each one (we did 30) is a cookie cutter, some starburst and some mini milky ways. Thanks to many of your suggestions we decided to roll the star stamp over the light pink paper and then also add two smaller stars next to the bigger star cut out.

Here is a quick and easy card that I made that you can make using your scraps. I got the idea from Inking Idaho's blog. She is great! The size of this one is 3x3.

Thanks for looking! Make sure to check back on Monday to see what I made for the first Fantabulous Cricut challenge!

Baby Shower - Favor sample

I designed this for my sister in law's baby shower which is only a month away! The theme is Twinkle Twinkle little star. The box is from Plantain Schoolbook. I sized it on my Gypsy. I love that thing. I was also able to cut out the star on it. I used acetate paper behind the star so nothing will be able to come through the star. The star is from Hannah Montana cartridge and the moon is from New Arrival.

Saying at the bottom is: Thanks for Wishing Upon Jenny's little star

Inside the box is a cookie cutter- either a moon or a star. We will also be putting some starburst and mini milkyways inside.

I think it might be alittle plain.. I have a stampin up star roller stamp which I am debating rolling the stars on the light pink paper before cutting everything out. Either that or I recently got a new punch that punches two mini stars and a moon. Might glue some of those to the other three sides and sprinkle a couple inside.. What do you guys think?
