Theme day Thursday, A Child's Year, with My Cricut Craftroom

 Hi Crafters! 
Today over at My Cricut Craftroom the design team is using A Child’s Year to create our projects. 

I decided to make an easel card for my project today.

Here is a peek at my project and then I will tell you what all I did.

What you need
·       Card stock cut @ 8 ½ by 4 ¼    score @ 4 ½ and 6 3/8
·       Card stock cut at 4 ¼ square  for the front of card
·       Blue dot paper cut at 4” square.
·       Yellow dot cut at 4 by 1 ½
·       Wrap yellow dot paper with blue twine and tie bow.

·       Cut the Fairy from pg 77 @ 3 ¾” and also cut the shadow

I assembled my easel card by folding the score lines in opposite directions, then I attached the 4 ¼ square to the flap on the base of the card.

I then used the blue and yellow papers to create the layers and wrapped them with blue twine and tied a bow.
I adhered them to the “flap” of the card.

After cutting my Fairy I assembled her and popped her up on foam tape and added her to the front of the card.

For the inside to keep the easel standing I cut a piece of yellow paper @ 4 by 1 ¼
And layered on a white cs cut @ 3 ¾ by 1
I stamped happy birthday from a stamp from TPC Studios card creating birthday. Using Memento rich cocoa ink.
I also popped that up on foam tape

I then added 3 gray rhinestones to it.

Here is a look at my completed card.

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

My Imagination Monday with My Cricut Craftroom

 Hi Crafters! It’s time for another My Imagineation Monday. 

I love using my Imagine and I wanted to create something new and exciting for you today.
I used My Imagine and the Ancestry cartridge along with printable vinyl to cover my laptop. 

1st I used the print feature on the imagine to print 2 12x12 pieces of the printable vinyl. 

I used the pattern on page 4 of the hand book.

My laptop measures 14 ½ x 9 ½

here is the printed vinyl

2nd I cut the 1st piece of vinyl down to 12x 9 ½
And applied it to my laptop.

*make sure to clean your laptop with a good cleaner. I used electronic wipes*

Now since my laptop was larger than my vinyl I had to “butt up” the 2 pieces of vinyl and I ended up having to overlap them by about 1” (see pix)

I love the way that it turned out, I have been wanting to personalize my computer for sometime and the other day while looking through my vinyl box I saw the printable sheets and decided to give it a try, I am so happy with the results and I didn’t have to pay $20 or more for a laptop skin.

Here is another look at before and after

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope that you enjoyed my project.
Please be a dear and head over to My Cricut Craftroom and see what my fellow design team members have made.

This month I chose to use Paisley, car decals and cricut birthday cakes cartridge.

1st up Paisley

I found these cute note cards at the goodwill and I thought for 50cent I could redo them and make them into my own creation.  Here is the pic and then I will tell you what I did.

The note cards measure 6 by 3 ¾  

Paisley cartridge pg 36 cut at 2.3 on my Imagine and filled with colors and patterns from the elise cartridge.
The top note shape is from the stock imagine images cut@ 2.7 and the pattern is also from Elise.

The striped paper is from enjoy the season cartridge. 

I used foam tape to give some dimension. 

The stamp is from pink by design and the ribbon is from American crafts.

2nd  Car decals
I used the car decals to cut a 4x4 vinyl for my suv.
 I used the lime green and pink( my favs) to layer it up. I cut it at 2 “ 

I used the “kiss” cut method. I set my pressure @ 2 blade @ 6 and speed @ 3 and it works out great. 

3rd Birthday cakes
Pg 64 cut @ 2” 

Papers are from my mind’s eye fine and dandy girls and lost and found market street 6X6 pads.

I stamped it with a ditto stamp all over the background and embossed with clear embossing powder.
The white strip is cut at 5 ½ X2 and embossed it with the swiss dots cuttle bug folder.
The Stamp is studio g with memento ink.
I added crystal stickles to add to the tops of Cupcakes.
