Christmas Ornaments

For this rattle I used a glass ornament, and a wooden peg. I used mop and glow to coat the inside of the ornament and then added glitter. For the outside, I cut out the letters I wanted using Ashlyn's Alphabet and applied to the outside of the ornament. Then I spray painted the ornament. I then hot glued the wooden peg into the ornament. I used an exacto knife and removed the vinyl so that the glitter showed through. Add a bow and hang on your Christmas tree.

I dated the back of the ornament.

This is just a regular ornament made the same way as above.

This idea I saw on Pinterest. I added the letter J that I purchased at Hobby Lobby. For the inside of the ornament I cut up and curled a baby's birth announcement.

With glass glue, glue the jar onto the candlestick and add a ribbon and candy. These area really cute for any occasion or party.

Memory Board

I made this memory board for a college student to hang over her desk at school. The picture frame was purchased at Hobby Lobby in the clearance section for $11.00. I sanded it down and painted it black. Since there was no back on the frame I used a display board and cut it to size. Next I covered the display board with cork so that stick pins could also be used. I then layered the cork with a thin layer of batting and covered it with 1 yard of material.

I used hot pink ribbon for the stripping with black buttons sewed all the way through the layers. Add some embellishments and it turned out really cute.

UP, UP and AWAY!

Hello all, I made this card in honor of an upcoming trip I'm taking. Yes you got it, I'm going for a ride in a hot air balloon. The card is made from the Pop up cartridge. The papers are all from Michael's open stock.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be sure to let you know how the balloon ride goes.

My Pink Stamper Design Team Challenge

I’ve been missing in action lately but I’m back now. This post is for “My Pink Stamper Design Team” Challenge. It was the perfect challenge because I needed to make a baby shower present and the challenge colors are the colors being used in the nursery. I’m posting this a day before the shower, so SHHHH…

Here is the challenge:
Make a card, scrapbook page, or other Cricut project with your favorite Cricut cartridge using the following colors......

(other optional color of your choice)

With this in mind I crocheted a baby blanket in turquoise. When I give a blanket away I put it in a box that matches for safe keeping when it is not being used. I purchased a box from Michael’s that has a magnetic closure on it.

I painted the edges of the box with turquoise paint. Then with spray adhesive I applied 12x12 scrapbook paper all around the box. After all was completely dry, I used brown ink to ink the edges to give the box an antique look. Then for finishing touches I added some ribbon and a bow.

I added large turquoise beads found in the beading section at Michaels for feet.

Using Rock Princess cricut cartridge I cut out the shadow of the crown on row 2 and embellished it with clear stones. I did not attach it to the top of the box because it will be the tag for the gift. After presenting the gift, the crown will then be adhered to the top of the box for additional embellishment.

Here is a picture of the blanket:

Picture Frame

Hello to all the Sassy Lady followers and Happy Thanksgiving! Today I'm getting another opportunity to play at the Sassy Lady's blog. First of all I would like to apologize for not having a cricut related posted for today but I had to have an unexpected minor surgery a couple of weeks ago. I am recovering really well, but I haven't had the energy to really do a lot of designing or crafting lately.

I purchased this frame at Hobby Lobby a few months back without any real plans for it. First I painted it off white. I added some decorative paper to the front and then distressed it with Tim Holtz distressing ink.

To finish it off I added a little bling and some prima flowers and it turned out really cute.

I hope you try this very simple and easy to make project and share your ideas with me. Thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Door Hanging

Isn't this just adorable? I needed something to decorate my front door with for Halloween so I thought I would make a wall hanging. I cut these images using Happy Hunting's cartridge.

The hat was cut at 7 inches.

The witches brew pot was cut on fit to page.

The shoe was also cut on fit to page.

I punched holes in each of the images using the crop-a-dile and connected the three pieces together with orange and brown ribbon. Of course I had to add some bling to each piece. I just can't help myself when it comes to adding the bling. The more it sparkles and shines, the better I like it.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting today. Please leave me a comment and let me know how you will take this idea and make it your own.
