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!

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!!

Happy Fourth!

Happy Fourth of July!  Do you all have fun plans for today??  My sweetie and I are heading over to a friend's house this evening for some food and fun.  Well, as I was getting ready this morning, I realized I did not have a festive shirt to wear today.  Local craft store (thankfully open on the holiday!!) and Silhouette to the rescue!!

I ran to the store and picked up some heat transfer vinyl and a plain red tee shirt.  Then came back home and found the perfect image - this week's free image in the Silhouette store!  A little cutting, weeding and ironing later, and I had this:

My sweetie was off playing golf today and when I sent him a picture of my shirt, I immediately got a text back from him asking me to make one for him.  So, one more trip to the craft store for another red shirt!!  He wanted his just a little different though, and this is what we came up with:


I think we're ready for our Fourth of July celebrations!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a fabulous holiday weekend!

Anything Goes
Show us your projects!

For my project, I got my inspiration from Pinterest, here.  I'm still trying to get my wedding scrapbooks finished up, and I had a basket full of the cards we received that I wanted to do something with.  I saw this on Pinterest a while back, and thought it was the perfect way to keep our wedding cards.  Here's my version:


The colors are the colors we used for our reception - the papers are actually left over from various projects I made around the time of our wedding!  The front and back covers are two layers of chipboard glued together, then covered in cardstock.  I added a monogram to from the Tie the Knot cartridge to the front cover.  The ribbon is attached to the back cover with two brads, and then simply comes around the "book" to tie in the front.  The metal ring is 3.5" - the largest one I could find.  The book is a bit overstuffed, but it still works!


I hope you will join in the fun with us this week at FCCB!  Anything goes, so let your creativity go wild!!  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!

Color Challenge
Create a project that uses the colors purple, yellow and gray

This weekend, my sweetie and I attended a surprise birthday party for a good friend of mine from work.  We started on the same day, and were working on the same project for a short while, and became great friends during that time.  Her mother came in town, which she was expecting, but so did her brother and sister-in-law, which was another surprise!  So fun!!  Anyway, on to my card......


I defaulted to one of my favorite cartridges for birthday cards - Birthday Bash.  I saw the cute mouse coming out of the present, and thought, "How perfect for a surprise birthday party!"


I added some faux stitching to the present and a twine bow along the side finished off my card.

I hope you'll join in the fun with us at FCCB this week and link up your purple, yellow and grey projects.  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!!

Sketch Challenge
Create a project inspired by the sketch below:

This card was inspired by the three flower brads I used.  I was wondering what I could use instead of three squares of paper and came across these brads in my stash of supplies.  Once I saw those, I went looking for an image to go with them and found this pot of flowers on the Freshly Picked Cartridge.


A little more searching through my stash and I found a fun sentiment to accompany the brads and flowers, and my card was coming together!


Sketches are such fun challenges I think!  I hope you'll join in the fun with us this week and link up your project using the sketch 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!
