One on my coworkers wife is going to have twins, so we are having a shower later this month for them. I decided to try my hand at my new Cricut Mini Album explosion box. First I cut it out with a main layer of yellow, then blue, pink and green. I also cut out a bunch of cricut cuts some boy and some girls. Did I mention the twins are one of each?
The papers are from DCWV Nanas Kids. The ribbon I had on hand. The cuts are from Kates ABC's (for the girls layer) and Nate's ABC's B is for Boys (for the Boys layer) I had some decorative buttons that I used on the inside layer and the sentiment is computer generated.
I love this stamp set. This cow is so adorable. It's from Peachy Keen. Their challenge this week was a sketch challenge. I kind of flip flopped the image, but I think it works. I also put the little cow on an Action Wobble!
This is my first try at making a rosette wreath. I saw one on Pink by Design and decided to try one myself. I think it turned out cute. I added some Halloween brads and some spiders and bats I had in my stash. I cut Boo on my Cricut.
I think I'll try some other wreaths for other occassions too. It's so much fun!
I got my first stamp of the month in from Peachy Keen stamps, it is soooo cute. I had to stamp and color everything. This card is made using the two little squirrels and the pilgrim hat and some acorns. They are just so cute.
This card is just a cut from Happy Hauntings I wanted to try. The gate is so creepy. I made a twilight sky using different inks and stamped a witch flying in front of the moon. I decided to cut out a little halloween mouse, also from Happy Hauntings. I put the little mouse on an Action Wobble.
I finally tried the haunted house from Happy Hauntings. Boy, it was more complicated than I thought it would be. My suggestion is to do it step by step in the book (for the most part). There were a couple places I had to back track and redo. The characters are from Peachy Keen and some Halloween character stamps I got in clearance.
I made this to decorate my desk area at work. I think it turned out cute.
I love the Mickey Mouse cart, all of the cuts are so adorable. The only problem is some of the pieces are too small. But that was not the case with little Chip. I added some pretty autumn ribbon and some falling leaves.
This cute elephant is from the Winnie the Pooh cartridge. I love him, he is so adorable. I wrapped him in cheesecloth for his "mummy" Halloween costume (isn't he sooo scary!). And of course I had to pop him up on an Action Wobble. The haunted house and fence are both cut from the Mini Monsters cart. The paper is from DCWV. His little jack o lantern was cut from my new Teddy Bear Parade cart. On the inside I stamped Happy Halloween.
For this card, I cut the little girl from Twinkle Toes, and the hula hoop I made out of two ovals and put one inside the other(on my Gypsy). I also used Elegant Edges. Then I made the flower with my Spellbinders. I love the little flowers they make! The paper is my new favorite paper pack the colors are so beautiful. It's DCWV The Chateau Lavendar stack.
I stamped a cute little Peachy Keen face on it. Added lots of little purple jewels and a sentiment from Pink by Design. Then to top it all off, I put her on an Action Wobble, to give her the true hula hoop action.
I was so excited when I got my Peachy Keen stamp order in the mail yesterday. The challenge at that blog was to make a candle. I just had to use my new stamp set!
I used a square candle holder and put a lacy border around it then added the cute little Peachy Keen stamps. Then of course I had to put the cute little witch on an Action Wobble. I love those springs!
I made this card for my grand nephews 3rd birthday, later this month. I used the B is for Boy, Paper Doll everyday and Create a Critter carts. I stamped the face on the conducter using Peachy keen. The sentiment is computer generated.
This is really something I should do more of. It turns out so cute and it's pretty much a one step process. I used the Mini Monsters and then just added a couple of little ghosts with Peachy Keen faces. Easy Peasy!
The challenge for Action Wobbles this week is to take a messed up card and finish it using an Action Wobble. This cut just didn't seem to turn out right. The eyes are weird. Then the sentiment is so hard to see since I embossed on it. Well I finished it off by making an Elegant Edge cut and put the guy with the weird eyes on it, and it turned out okay. Not my favorite, but okay.
For this card the challenge was to use a recycled item. I had cut up the plastic my Cricut carts come in. I keep them on hand for various projects. For this card I used it as the glass in my window. I cut the stove from Country Life and the tree and window from the Christmas cart. I had the little heart shaped wreath in my stash. I popped up the top layer to give it some depth.
I inked around the edges using some Tim Holtz-tea dye.
This card is made from the Mini Monsters cart. The little monster is dressed up as a candy corn (yummy). She is also put up on an Action Wobble. I also cut a little spider web and put some stickles on it. I added 2 bat buttons and 1 spider button. I also added some green goo-using the MS punch.
This is an adorable birthday card I made. It's also my first time using a digi that I colored myself. It was a freebie from Pixie Dust. I think she is so cute.
The paper is from DCWV The Chateau Lavender, I love the papers in this stack. The flower and leaves are cut using spellbinders. My only Cricut cut is the musical note. The sentiment is Peachy Keen from the Pocket Posies.
For this card, I used my brand new Crocs rule cart (got it at Walmart on clearance yesterday). At first I was going to cut the first croc, but it wasn't quite right. So I took the birdie off of it and attached it to this other croc. I think it turned out so cute.
I cut this from the Hello Kitty cart at 3". And I used Elegant Edges for the background. I stamped the apple with a Peachy Keen face stamp, and popped it up on pop dots. The sentiment is from Pink by Design.
I added glossy accents to the eyes. I also added 3 star shaped buttons onto the books, and added some bakers twine.
For this card, I used Simply Charmed, cut at 3" and popped up onto an Action Wobble. I didn't cut the face piece, because I used Peachy Keen Corny Stamps. The papers are from DCWV the Chateau Lavender stack. The sentiment is from Pink by Design-Simply Everything. I inked the edges of the papers with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress ink.
