I cannot quilt. I can barely sew a straight line. But I can cut paper so this project for the challenge over at Penny's Paper Crafty, was fun! The challenge is ANYTHING GOES and the DT is using images from QKR Stampede.
Used a lot of scraps to make the front. The inside was just a printed paper because making all those triangles was a lot and I just don't know how quilters do it.
These Popsicles are from the Simply Charmed cartridge. They are so cute. I used the tongue from the Grooming Cat on Meow for the licking popsicle. I wanted to use a play on words... I like you... I lick you. But, it just doesn't come out right..ha ha ha, so I just used I LIKE YOU as the sentiment inside.
I had two kinds of popsicle paper and I layered them and it came out pretty cute. I hope it made you laugh.
This is the Bugaboo "I Believe In You" Unicorn set. I love this set, it just makes me laugh and I've been in love with Bugaboo squares of late. For this set, I layered the card with a light blue paper, used a #Darice Field of Flowers folder... inked up the folder and ran it through the cuttlebug to get these great ink embossed paper that I layered on the blue. Each square is matted and mounted 3 times with purple pink and white paper. Pink and yellow silk ribbons layered and lined along with Cricut Scallop Edges Cut lined along the ribbons.
Learning how to slice things so you can create off the mat has been a huge learning curve for me. But, after I learned I went crazy with posting some trees that our Children's Minister wanted at our church.
Trees 3 & 4 - I didn't cut personally but had someone else cut for me. I put them up though, and all of them end up being a huge jigsaw puzzle to put on the wall! Ha ha ha. Anyway 3 & 4 were just too complicated for me to get right.
I used the following Cricut Cartridges and my own SVG cuts:
Stretch Your Imagination, Jubilee, Wild Card and Cindy Loo
This birthday box project is a "Make It" project from Cricut's Access choices. We don't always have to be creative on our own when we use these projects. Sometimes tweaking them on our own - creating specifically for the person we are giving them to is enough.
Below are the descriptions from the Make It Project. Added together they made this fun project.
I used Happy Birthday Ribbon that I had in my stash and some flowers from my stash with #EyeletOutlet brads, DCVW papers, Xyron runner tape, and Red double sided tape. This project made up quickly in less than one hour. This project entered in the following challenge: Avenue 613: #199 Anything Goes (Twist Monochrome)
This was a quick and fun project which has encouraged me to look more into the Make-It projects offered on the Cricut Design Space platform. There's no way the recipient isn't going to ewwww and awwww over the "made for her" packaging that holds her gift.
It's time for another challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty - the theme is Anything Goes The Design Team is using images from Digi Stamps 4 Joy This is Bella Brolly The papers are Fancy Pants, the clouds are Pink and Main Cloud/Scallop set, and buttons from my stash the inside sentiment is
If Life Gives You Rain Put on Your Cute Boots and Jump in the Puddles
Our sponsor is Dreaming Tree SVG cuts. I decided to combine some traditional Cricut cuts (Stars and stripes) along with some Dreaming Tree cuts. This Cherry Bomb hanging Vase/Lantern is one and the Cosmos flowers another.
I cut extra stars from the Cricut George and Basic Shapes cartridge and used the stripes to create little shooting stars in the arrangement. The Cosmos are adorable, I had those green opalescent brads in my stash and they were the perfect centers to my flowers.
The Cherry Bomb Lantern can hang and light up with fake candles put in it. It would be adorable that way too....... The photo's a little blurry because of the shutter speed, but you get the gist. This was a fun project to take on and Dreaming Tree is an excellent place to expand your Cricut horizons
Here are the cosmos flowers together with some origami flowers I made creating a small bouquet for my table
Over at Penny's Crafty Paper Challenge the challenge #334 is Anything Goes. A time to let it rip with whatever you want to put in. The Design Team is working with #Bugaboo images and so I got to have some fun with these designs
This Dog set of 4 Squares by Bugaboo was so darling to me. I could see how this card could be an OOPS, used as a masculine card, a Just Peeking in on You, or various other sentiments. The one I chose for this card was HELLO.
This fuzzy HELLO stamp is from #GossamerBlue, they have a whole set of these stamps that I am LOVING. (not a paid endorsement). The products I used for this card are: Fancy Pants paper, Square Pop Dots, Copic Markers, Xyron Adhesive, EK Success rounded square punch
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
The flowers and grass are a background image called "Doodle Flower Trio" that I sized and cropped , added buttons to the flowers and the little boy is "Nolan with a sign," you can get the image blank but it also comes with 4 pre-printed signs. I used the "How U doin'?!" sign.
I had this little "Hey" word bubble that came in a grab-bag I received, and it was perfect for this card and to balance out the butterfly. Come join us a Penny's Challenges
