Cooking With Cricut Challenge #105

Welcome to another challenge Wednesday here and over at COOKING WITH CRICUT! This week's challenge is to use apples and/or honey in your project - not the real stuff as that could get a little sticky! :-)

Here is the card that I made using Create a Critter and a perfect stamp from Papertrey Ink.

Cooking With Cricut Challenge #104 - Texture

Welcome to another fun challenge Wednesday here and over at COOKING WITH CRICUT!

This week is all about texture which is so great to add to your projects! Texture kicks everything up a notch or two! :-)
I made a birthday card and added texture by using the birthday cuttlebug folder and then sanding it to show the contrasting color on the inside.  I also used the Walk In My Garden cartridge for the die cut on the front. Although this is a simple and quick way to add texture, it is still very effective in making your card or project pop! 

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to stop over at COOKING WITH CRICUT to participate in this week's challenge by linking up your own textured project for the chance at a great prize!

Thankful Cards

Hello everyone and welcome to the 2nd Thursday of September! It's time for my monthly turn to share with everyone here and over at SHE'S A SASSY LADY and CRICUT IS CLOSE TO MY HEART!

Today I chose to make a great pocket and tags combo that is on the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. If you don't already have a CTMH consultant that you purchase from, you are welcome to click HERE to visit my site and place an order for this amazing cartridge as well as many other goodies!

Here is my finished project:

You can find this pocket and tags on page 25 of the cartridge booklet.

To make this project the size that will work with the coordinating stamp sets, you need to size the pocket at 7.5"H.  Adhere a wide strip of ribbon around the pocket after it is assembled, leaving the seam in the front. It gets covered up with a label.

Cut the tags at 3.5"H and if you have the coordinating stamp set - stamp the borders on them. This stamp set is S1109 which was the September 2011 SOTM called Limited Edition.

The sentiment stamps are from ABOVE RUBIES STUDIO.  I added some ribbon to make the tags pop! :-)

Next, make the label for the front. The label and layer is found on page 55 of the cartridge booklet. it is cut at 1.25"H.  I stamped it with a stamp from the Limited Edition set.

Adhere the label with pop dots on top of the ribbon on the front.

Time to put it all together!

 I'm thinking this will make a great gift for someone who needs an encouraging word or two or three!

Thanks for stopping by today!
