Imagine-ation Monday with My Cricut craft room

Hi Crafty Pals!!! Its Monday again and time for My Cricut Craft Room design team post. 
oh how do  you like the pink graphics? 
They look great! 
We have turned pink to show our support for Breast cancer. All of our projects through Oct will have pink somewhere in them even if you can't see it to show our support.

Here's my card and then I will tell you what I did!

I printed the 2 back ground paper using the snow angel cart and the 5:7 setting on the Imagine. I then inked the edges. 

inked using iced spruce and festive berries

I printed the main imagine from the icon section at 4"

For my card base I cut brown paper at 4 1/4 by 11 and then scored and folded in half. 

For each layer I cut them down a 1/4.

I used Making memories texture fabric tape and wrapped around the card. 

Then i attached the layers on the base and popped up the image on foam dots. 

I used a stardust gel pen to add dash lines around the card and spruce up the image. I then added some  stickles to the snow, and rhinestones for some bling. 

Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you will head over to My Cricut Craft Room to see what my other design team sisters have made.

Cricut Craft room Exclusive Projects

Hi Guys!

Today we are using Cricut Craft Room exclusive cartridges to create projects. I used moveable monster - Witch to create my project.

It was really fun creating with CCR.
Here's my witch

I cut it at 11"

To assemble I glued all the pieces together and then added brads to the "joint" areas.

I added some bling to her hat, hair and dress.

For her cauldron I used lime green puff paint as her "brew" and then hand wrote Witch's Brew in silver sharpie.

Thanks for stopping by.

You're Sweet card

Hi Crafy Friends!

Today is my day to post for the My Cricut Craft Room design team. We were to use Cricut Craft Room exclusives to create a project.

I chose to use craft room basic.
 3 scallop circles @ 2"
3 circles @ 1.75

 On the white circles I stamped 3 cupcakes from the birthday stamp set from inkadinkado, with memonto tuxedo black.

I then colored them with my bic markers and attached them to the scallops.

My card base was cut out of Kraft card stock. It measures 6 1/2 by 7" then scored and folded in half.

I then layer on 2 papers from the summer days echo park pad.  I then wrapped twine around the card.

I added stickles to all the cupcake frosting.  

I used glossy accents to attach the circles because of the twine. 

Here's my final card. Thanks for stopping by. I hope that you will head over to My Cricut Craft room to see what my design team sisters have made.

spooky bird Halloween card

Hi Crafty Pals!!!

I have a cute and simple card to share with you today. I used 3 birds on parade and paper dolls dress up to make this cute Halloween card.

Isn't he a cutie.. Ok so here's what I did.

The Ghost bird is from 3 birds on parade pg 39 cut @ 3 1/2

The fence is from paper doll dress up and I used the fit to length button and 4". I can;t remember what size it cut it out at but it worked perfect.

Ok So the card base is an A2 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 and I rounded the bottom 2 corners.
The next layer is from recollections Midnight Magic mat pack that I picked up last year on clearence. I cut it @ 4 by 5 1/4 and I inked it with Tim Holtz peeled paint distress ink.

In that same stack there is a border page and that is where the diamond border came from. I then used a studio G mini punch to punch out those little bitty spiders.

next I attached the fence and doodled around it with white gel pen.

Then I popped up my little Ghost bird and added some google eyes for fun.

I didn't like the way the words cut out so I just used a stamp for the word bubble.
I out lined it in firefly stickles and then covered the treat bag is orange peel stickles.

I just love how it turned out.
Here are some more pics of it.

Theme day Thursday!!!! Lunch Box items!!!

Hi Crafters! It's Theme day Thursday again and today we were to make something for someone's lunch.

I chose to make a lunch box tag for my nephew.
I used tags bags boxes and more 2 and simply charmed.

Here is a pic of the front and back and then I will tell you what I did.

The tag is from pg, 24 on Tags, bags, boxes and more 2 using the tag feature key, and I cut that at 4.73" I cut that 3 times. twice in patterned paper and once in kraft card stock. 

The Pizza is from Simply charmed pg, 76 and is cut at 2.53.

For Jordan's name I used A child's years and cut it at 1.5"

here are my cuts (excuse my nasty mat.. its 2 years old)

I assembled my tag, and pizza. 

I adhered the pizza on one side and his name on the other. 

papers are from my minds eye, lime twist, out of the blue 6x6 pad

 I then used my crop a dile to punch a hole in the tag. 

I wanted to make the tag durable so I used my yourstory to laminate it. 

I use the scotch laminating pouches instead of the Your story ones because they are much cheaper. I can get this pack at wal-mart for around 3 buck for 20.
 Tag in the pouch
 I had to run the tag through the lamination machine several times but in the end it came out looking great.

I had to re punch the tag and then I added some orange twine.

I had so much fun making this lunch tag for my nephew. I know that he will be the talk of the lunch table. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my post. Please stop by My Cricut Craft Room to see what my other design team sister have made for you viewing pleasure.

Window card

Hi Crafty friends! I hope that you are all doing well. Today is card creating Tuesday with My Cricut Craft Room, and the design team made window cards for your view pleasure.

So for my card I used Plantin Schoolbook for my cricut cut. 

The base of my card measures 4 by 5 1/2. 
I used my Martha Stewart circle cutter to cut a 2 1/2 in "window" in my layering paper. Then for the ring around the window I cut the paper first at 2 3/4 and then cut the 2 1/2 circle out of it so that I would get a frame. 

For inside my window I used a 1 1/2 heart and sticker letters. I then add an acetate piece for the window. 

On the front of the card I used another heart cut @ 1" and glitzed it up with stickles. 

The ribbon is from my stash. 

Here's a few more pics of it. 

I thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that you will head over and see what my design team sisters have created for you as well.

100 Cartridge blog hop with My Cricut Craft room!!!!

Hi Crafty Friends! Thanks for stopping by for the My Cricut Craft room September 100 Cartridge hop.  There are some great projects lined up for you to see this month from all my design team sisters. If you hopped over from Tess then you came from the right place, if you just happened upon this hop then please head over to My Cricut Craft Room so that you get to see all the wonderful projects and a chance at the blog candy.

I will have the line up at the bottom in case you get lost along the way. 

Can you believe that it is September already? WOW!!! This year is flying by. 
I have a few projects for you this month. I am just gonna jump right in and get to the pics and what I did. 

Project 1: Create a Critter.

I used the image from button 9(sorry don’t know page # my sis is borrowing the cart and I used my Gypsy)
On my Gypsy I used the accessory function key and button 9 to weld together 2 of the shapes to create a card base. The size is 4.30 by 13.77
welded base
 Then I cut the same image including the topper for the acorn at 4.30 by 7.45 

The topper of the acorn I embossed with Swiss dots and the acorn with d’vine swirls cuddle bug folders.
The critter is from the same button. He is cut at 2.92”.
I used Tim Holtz distress inks in vintage photo and antique linen to give the cuts some shading. 

After inking, I assembled all the parts.  In addition, I used a sukra white gel pen for the highlight in the eyes and white dash lines around the card.

Project 2: Sponge Bob Cartridge

I have a hard time making manly cards and when I chose to use the SpongeBob cart this month I had no idea what I was going to do with it. 

Then on PG 58, I saw the boat that SpongeBob drives. It hit me. I could cut off the wheels on the bottom and it would make the perfect boat.

I cut the image and icon layer @ 2 ¼
For the boat I, used colorbok textured white paper.
For the seats and accents, I use a pearly blue from recollections.

I found the waves on pg 47. I used different colors of blue paper and cut the waves at 2 ¼, 2 and 1 1/2 “
After assembling the boat I used paper from my mind’s eye away we go 6 X 6 pad for the background papers. I cut them so that when taped together they measured 4 by 5 ¼.
I then added some of the waves varying the colors and then then added the boat and popped more waves up on top so that it looks like the boat is racing through the water.
I added some glossy accents to the “windshield” part and used a white gel pen to add dash lines to the outer card base. 

Project 3: Kate’s ABC’s
For this project I used the cuts found on page 47 cut @3 ½

I assembled the cut and then I added stickles in hot pink and icicle to the butterflies and black puff type paint for the little bodies.
The base of my card is Kraft card stock cut @ 7 by 6 ½ and scored and folded in half.

The Yellow layer is 6 ¼ by 3 ¼
The flower paper (MME) is cut @ 6x3
I tied a pink ribbon and cut a flag shape by hand out of the yellow paper. The sentiment is from Studio G and stamped with memento cocoa brown ink.
