Letter of the Day- I

Monday at My Cricut Craft Room is Letter of the Day projects or using the Cricut Imagine.

I used the Cricut cartridge "I"ndie Art to make this butterfly, cutting at 2 inches.

I used purple glitter glue (that isn't stickles, which is why it clumped like it did!).  Sentiment is from a $1 stamp set.

Would You Ever Guess Wednesday- Art Philosophy

Time for another WYEGW!  I love to do these projects.  It's so fun to see the variety of options available.

This might be the best clean and simple card I have ever made.  And trust me, it was hard not to add more to it but I felt like it needed to be simple.

I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge "card" feature and cut at 6.41 inches.  You will find the particular cut I did on page 37.  I added red cardstock on the inside and tied red twine.

Theme Day Thursday- Bling

Today's theme at My Cricut Craft Room is BLING!

I had designed this scrapbook page on my gypsy a while back, not really knowing what I was going to use it for.  When I signed up to do the BLING theme of the day, suddenly I knew what my project would be!

I used Old West Cricut cartridge to make this layout.  The white "poster" is cut at 10 inches.

  The "WANTED" letters are cut at 2.5 inches and popped up using foam tape. The star is silver glitter cardstock and cut at 3.3 inches.   The "rope" is cut at 1.8 inches, I used a white gel pen to highlight.

 The "boot" is cut at 3.3 inches.  I ran the black tip and tag through the cuttlebug to emboss with dots.  I used crystal stickles on the boot for bling.

 I added crystal gems to the start tips and along the side of the picture.  The picture is my baby brother, taken in July 1980!!  He doesn't remember but he totally LOVED his cowboy boots.

Check out the rest of today's projects from other DT members at My Cricut Craft Room's blog.

Have an awesome day!

My card base is 5.75 x 5.75 inches using purple American Crafts cardstock.  My image is from Some Odd Girl, colored with copic markers and cut out with oval nestabilities.

You should have arrived from Jenn's blog.  If not, be sure to head to My Cricut Craft Room and start from the beginning.  

I am showcasing FOUR different cartridges today.  Baby Steps, 3 Birds on Parade, Fabulous Finds and Birthday Bash.  

My first card uses Baby Steps Cricut Cartridge.  This card will be going to my Nephew who turns One in February.

My card base is 5.75 x 5.75 inches, in blue American Crafts cardstock.  The pattern paper is from Animal Crackers DCWV stack.  I ran the upper solid red portion through the cuttlebug.  

The Happy 1st Birthday was cut at 3.5 inches.  The cupcake was also cut at 3.5 inches.  I used a white gel pen to decorate the cupcake and candle.

This card uses 3 Birds on Parade.

This is an A2 size card.  This is the "swim bird" found on page 33 and is cut at 3.5 inches.  I used Peachy Keen critter faces and colored in the beak with an orange gel pen.  The sentiment came from Pink Cat Studios summer set.  

This card will be donated to Operation Write Home.  If you're not familiar with OWH, they send black handmade cards to the troops to write in and send back home to their families.  It's a FABULOUS organization.  You can help by sending cards or donating shipping funds.

This card was made using Birthday Bash

This card is also A2 sized.  This gift bag was cut at 3 inches and can be found on page 59.  I used American Crafts cardstock.  The pink backgound mat was cut with a nestabilities die.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up.  This card is also being donated to Operation Write Home.  This card was very fun to make, I know I'll be doing more in the future.  

This treat box was decorated using Fabulous Finds.

I do believe I have found a new love.  Making little treat boxes and decorating them!  I made the box using the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  It was my first time....and OMG, I do believe I'm hooked!  

I used Fabulous Finds to make the luggage tag on page 108, it's cut at 3.5 inches.  I watched a YouTube video a while back that showed using this cut wrapped around ribbon, I thought I'd try that too.  

The box was cut at 6.41 inches, I used the Gypsy to get the cut size.  

Originally I was going to put a little tissue paper inside my box, however I had some pink felt on my desk and thought I'd try that instead.  I like how it matches my luggage tag.  I filled my treat box with Kisses.

This is a picture without the felt to show you the handles.

Next stop is Marji!

Here's the entire line up ...


Hope you enjoyed my projects.  Have an awesome day!
