Terrific Tuesday at Exploring Cricut!

Hi everyone and welcome to TERRIFIC TUESDAY over at EXPLORING CRICUT! This is my first project as a member of the design team here and I am honored to have this opportunity! My sister-in-law asked me if I could make a snowman face for her daughter and friends to assemble on a mug for a birthday party craft so this is what I came up with! I used the Snow Friends cartridge and cut only the face in vinyl - not the shape of the snowman. Here is the finished mug:

After weeding the vinyl, I left the pieces on the backing for each girl to have to assemble on their own mug.


I didn't have any orange vinyl so I used pink for the nose! :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by today and be sure to check out EXPLORING CRICUT everyday to see all the "Cricuty" goodness going on over there!!

Let's have a Beach Party...... Oh, I wish!!

Hello everyone! Are you ready for our weekly challenge over at EXPLORING CRICUT? This week, if you want to play along, you can use any Cricut cartridge with at least 2 cuts, the color blue and a patterned paper.  You have until Saturday, Feb. 1st @ 10:00 pm EST to link up your own project for us all to see!  Here is what I came up with for my project.  Since we are currently in the middle of lots and lots of snow and extremely low temperatures, I chose to make a Beach Party invitation! It's just wishful thinking at this point, but I can dream, can't I?? :-)

I used the Life Is A Beach Cricut cartridge and used the card feature. I used my white gel pen to add more interest to my card. 

Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to link up your own creation and play along!

Go to EXPLORING CRICUT to join us!

Christmas Banner

Hello everyone and Happy New Year! It's my turn to share here and over at SHE'S A SASSY LADY  so I'm showcasing a Christmas banner I made to hang over our fireplace!  I want to say, right up front, that I apologize for the shortness of this post but in the last month, we moved into our new house and hosted several Christmas gatherings and I just started a new job..... so my crafting has been kind of hit or miss! Here is the banner:


I used Art Deco for the font - 4"-  and Pretty Pennants for the pennant shape - 6". 

This banner was so easy to put together and I just love how it looks over our fireplace! 

I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and I pray you all have a blessed New Year! 

Well, short and sweet but I hope you enjoyed my project! See ya' next month!
