Sketch Challenge



I used this sketch as inspiration for the last page in my wedding album.  I had to tell my husband, it's the last page physically in the album, not the last page I have to make - LOL!


I made a 6.5 x 6.5 inch envelope and instead of folding the top flap down like you would to seal an envelope, I tucked it inside.  This gave me a square pocket, where you can see a bit of the same paper I used for the background peeking through at the top.  Then I cut a smaller square of paper and adhered it to my envelope and added the bride and groom image from the Wedding cartridge.  This created a pocket where I put a DVD with the video from our wedding ceremony.  I found the font for my sentiment on the Something to Remember cartridge.  A pretty simple page, but I really like it!

I hope this sketch will inspire you to create something wonderful and that you'll join in the fun at FCCB this week!  Remember, to qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.  Thanks for stopping by!

Tag you're It
Create a project that uses a tag

For my project, I created a birthday tag.  A number of family and friends have birthdays coming up, so I know this will come in handy on someone's gift!


I cut the tag and the shadow from Plantin Schoolbook, and the cupcake is from Birthday Bash.  I glittered the cherry, and it's hard to tell in the picture but I also put Glossy Accents on the sprinkles.  I stamped my sentiment on a hand cut banner and finished the tag off with some ribbon.

I hope you'll join in the fun with us this week at FCCB!  Remember, to qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.  Thanks for stopping by!

FCCB #226 - Kids Theme


 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge with FCCB!


Challenge #226 Kids Theme

This Weeks Sponsor
1 Stamp set to the winner
US only
~This Weeks Challenge~
Kids Theme
Create a project for kids

For my project, I created a card using the Twinkle Toes cartridge.  Some good friends of ours recently had their second baby girl.  When we go to meet their new baby we're going to take their older girl (recently promoted to Big Sister!) a little gift too.  This is the card I made for her.


I think the little ballerinas on this cartridge are so cute!  I hid the face cuts in Cricut Craft Room so I could use one of my Peachy Keen Stamps for her face.  A crinkle ribbon bow, topped off with a twine bow and button, and a few gems finish off the card.


We sure hope you'll join in the fun with us this week.  Please remember our rules for participating in the FCCB challenges:
  • You may add up to 3 unique projects that meet the challenge criteria
  • You must use at least 1 Cricut cut, after that anything goes, stamps, svg's, etc.

Also, if it's not obvious, be sure to let us know what cartridge you used!  Thanks for stopping by!!

Welcome Baby

I'm back!  I've had a bit going on lately and took a little break from crafting and blogging.  But, I've had some time lately and think I'm getting back in to the swing of things.  So here I am - hopefully a bit more frequently again!

Some good friends of my sweetie and mine just had their second baby - a little girl.  We're headed to see them soon so we can meet the newest addition to their family.  So of course I had to make a card for their precious little one!


Die Cuttin Divas is having a "Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!" challenge this week.  What perfect inspiration to pull out my Teddy Bear Parade cartridge!  I saw this sweet baby bear image and thought it would be great for a baby card.


Some fun pattern paper for the background, a little twine and a button and there you have it!  Thanks for stopping by to check out my creation!

Bug Out
Create a project that uses a bug

For my project, I used the Birthday Bash cartridge to create a belated birthday card.  I thought the image of the bee holding the gift bag worked perfectly with my sentiment!


I decided to give my bee a little character and used a Peachy Keen face stamp instead of the regular face cut of the image.



I hope you'll join in the fun with us this week!  Remember, to qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.  Thanks for stopping by!

Wet and Wild
Create a project related to water

I sent this card to my mom for her birthday.  She lives in Arizona and has a pool in her backyard and enjoys spending the hot afternoons soaking in her pool.  So when I saw this image I immediately thought of her, and hoped that she was able to spend some time relaxing in the pool on her birthday!

This image is from the Pack Your Bags cartridge.  I added a little gemstone to the flower on the girl's swimcap, and a crinkle ribbon and twine bow finish off the card.


I hope you will join in the fun at FCCB this week!  Remeber, to qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge at FCCB!

Summer Treats
Create a project that represents the tastes of summer

I love eating ice cream in the summer.  Well, to be honest, I love eating ice cream any time of the year, but I especially love it during the summer!  So, when I saw this challenge, I set off on a mission to find a fun ice cream image, and found this ice cream sundae on the Summer Celebrations cartridge.


It's hard to tell in my pictures, but I added Glossy Accents to the cherry and the hot fudge.  A twine bow and button, and a Jaded Blossom sentiment finish off the card.


I hope you'll join in the fun with us this week and link up your Summer Treats creations over at FCCB!  Remember, to qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.  Thanks for stopping by today!!
