Cricuteers Anonymous Design team call submission

I came across a wonderful site that has weekly challenges that are so much fun!  It is !! You have to check it out! Hopefully, it will inspire you as it did me!  This is my submission for the design team call. Even if I am not chosen, it is so much fun to have a challenge!  This challenge was a picnic-inspired theme project. I chose to make a picnic invitation. I used the Fabulous Finds cricut cartridge. If you have not checked out that cart, I strongly urge you to because there is so much in there!!   I cut the paper clip with windows and the insert on page 105 at 4.05" H with my Gypsy. The card size is 4.25"x6.75". The kraft strip is 2.5"x6". The punched circles are 1.25" and 1". The button brad is from Hobby Lobby. The stamps used on the front of the card are from the Stampin' Up set called "Mark the Date".  For the inside of the card where the "who, what, where" etc. goes, I cut the window frame with insert on page 104 - also from Fabulous finds, at 3.53" H.  Thanks for looking and make sure that you make some time to keep creating!!

Personalized scripture tags

Hello everyone!  I wanted to share these little personalized scripture tags that I made for 3 of my little nieces and 1 nephew!  I used the library pocket on page 113 of TBBM and made tags from page 92 to fit. I just picked various papers from my scrap stash to decorate and embellish!  The recipients loved them, so mission accomplished!  Thanks for looking and feel free to leave a comment, especially if you have any specific questions! I forgot to let you know that I used my gypsy to weld the names using the Lyrical Letters cartridge! Love that cartridge's fonts!

Easter cards using Cornish Heritage stamps

I love the stamps at Cornish Heritage Farms so when I saw these, I just knew they would be perfect for my Easter cards!  They are rubber stamps that have a cling mount so they are easy to place just where you want them!  I used some papers from my scraps stash and I'm very happy with how they turned out! Hope you do too! Have a blessed day!

My Pink Stamper Color Challenge

I am such a fan of My Pink Stamper so when she posted this color challenge, I just had to participate! It took me until tonight to get my entry done because I haven't been feeling well due to some gallbladder issues!!  At any rate, here it is!!  I really love the new Robotz cartridge!!  I wanted to make a girl robot so I chose this one for a get well card. I cut the robot from page 41 at 3.42" with my Gypsy. All the layers were cut at 3.42" also.  I used pop dots to mount the robot.  The sentiment was also cut from Robotz at .79" welded and cut with my Gypsy. For the sentiment, I used the cricut markers first, then cut it out so that it would be outlined. Hope you enjoy!  I'm going to have a lot of fun with this cartridge!!
