Book mark tags for the new year (for Exploring Cricut)

2014 is almost upon us and Diane has challenged us to make some kind of project related to the New Year at Exploring Cricut.  I belong to two book clubs, so I made some tags to use as bookmarks.  We have just finished planning all the books to read for this upcoming year, so on the back of my tags is room to write the list of titles for 2014.  I used Plaintain Schoolbook to cut the basic tag and it's shadow.  I then added the silhouette of the child reading from one of my favorite cartridges, A Child's Year, and used the font to add the year.

Plaintain Schoolbook-tags, cut at 4 inches
A Child's Year-child cut at 2 1/2 inches, font at 1 inch
Paper-kraft, CTMH for the blue paper
brown chalk ink
ribbon/twine from the stash

Link up your project with us at Exploring Cricut and we hope you will join us for lots of crafty fun in 2014!

More Christmas tags (for BBTB2)

Christmas is almost here!  We are having an inspiration only post this week at BBTB2, featuring more Christmas gift tags.  These are so quick and easy to make and just give a package that extra bit of special!  I made a whole stack, using the basic tag and shadow from Plaintain Schoolbook that matched the colors on some of my wrapping paper.  I added the clef and holly leaf from the CM Tis the Season cartridge to two of them, but the rest are simple and sweet.  (Son #2 is getting a little mini keyboard, so the tag with the clef is special for him!)

Tis the Season Christmas layout

It's my day for the daily project at Exploring Cricut!  Are you all ready for Christmas?  I'm not!!!!  So much to do!  And we are hosting the big family party!  Yikes!  I have a Christmas layout for you for some of those upcoming pictures.  I used the CM Tis the Season cartridge for all the cuts and the bg papers are from Bo Bunny.

I have two posts today...

Happy Monday!  Christmas is speeding towards us (maybe a little faster than I'm ready for…) and I have two Christmas posts for you.  Just below is my post for my Christmas tag project for BBTB2, using the Winter Frolic snowman.  Scroll down one post for my December 25th layout for Exploring Cricut, using the CM Tis the Season cartridge.   Have a great week getting all your final Christmas shopping done!

Christmas tags (for BBTB2)

We have a fun Christmas gift tag challenge for you at BBTB2 this week.   You are probably starting to wrap some packages, right?  I love to make a few of the gift tags (for those super special gifts) and the ladies at BBTB2 have some beautiful ones to show you!  I used Plaintain Schoolbook to cut my tag-that cartridge has some great tags and this one is my favorite!  The hip and cool snowman on the front of my tag is cut from the Winter Frolic cartridge.  On the back of the tag, I added the to/from with room to write names.  I finished off the whole thing with some ribbon and twine and added it to my package-all done!

December 25th layout (for Exploring Cricut)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  That is our Exploring Cricut challenge for this week-to make a Christmas project of some sort with a cricut cut.  As I'm in the midst of all things Christmas related at the moment, this was the PERFECT challenge!   The fun whimsical cuts are from the CM Tis the Season cartridge, including my journal box.  I added Santa's belt buckle for a cute little addition on the journal box, along with a stamped title.

Paper-Bazzill basics prints, solids CTMH

We'd love to see you join our challenge with any kind of Christmas project…maybe that homemade paper crafting gift you are making for a special someone on your list?  Or a card or layout?  It's wide-open, so have some fun with it!

Did you know Bazzill has started making some print papers?  I didn't until I saw this Christmas background paper at Archievers, which is always well stocked with the Bazzill solid paper.   Then I saw this gorgeous heavy weight Christmas paper and was surprised to discover it was from Bazzill!  I had to have some to make Christmas layouts, even though that wasn't what I was there to buy!  (I know, I know...I'm easily distracted by shiny objects, er paper, lol!  Especially when I'm supposed to be shopping for boring things like adhesive.)

I'm also going to link this to the Fantabulous Cricut Anything But a Card Challenge this week.

Noel Christmas card

It's a Christmas card challenge at Fantabulous Cricut, so I made this card using the Create A Critter 2 cartridge for the NOEL.   The background papers are from the fresh and fun Doodlebug North Pole collection and the olive ribbon is from my stash of Stampin Up ribbon.  Super quick and easy for mass production!

Walking in a Winter Wonderland layout (for BBTB2)

Is it getting cold and wintery yet where you live?  We have snow falling as I write this, with minus zero wind chill!  Brrrr!  Our challenge at BBTB2 this week is to make a winter project, so I made a layout for some snowy pictures.  I used the Artbooking cartridge for all my cuts.  The paper is from the  Echo Park Tis the Season collection that I recently picked up at Archievers.  In real life, you can see the sparkly white elements on this layout, but it's been cloudy and dark this week, which did NOT result in a good photograph of my layout (my camera with the bigger flash died-I'm really hoping Santa is bringing me a new camera for Christmas…I've been really nice this year!).

Candy Cane Merry Christmas layout (for Exploring Cricut)

It's my day for the daily project at Exploring Cricut and I've got a yummilicious peppermint and candy cane layout for Christmas, all inspired by this Echo Park Tis the Season striped paper.  It just made me think of eating bits of the stolen candy canes from the Christmas tree (there usually aren't any left on our tree by Christmas…hence the stolen part!).   I love this cute little candy cane and peppermint from the Simply Charmed cartridge!   The title is from Simply Charmed also.  The stickers on the journal box are from the Echo Park paper pack.

North Pole Christmas card

I've been having fun making Christmas cards, so I'll be sharing a few more of them over the next week or two.  This one uses the CM Tis the Season cartridge for the cute little North Pole sign and the paper is from the (appropriately named) Doodlebug North Pole collection!

I have two posts today:

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving and are full (maybe overfull, lol?) of food and enjoyed some family fun!  And possibly shopping adventures.  While I did have to work at the hospital on Thanksgiving day, I got to enjoy turkey and pie TWICE-once at work (we managed to fit in a little feasting for the staff between patient care duties) and then the family saved me some too!  At home we've been eating all the fabulous leftovers in our PJs all weekend, so life is good.  Now we're on the countdown to Christmas and I have two Christmas posts for you today.  Just below is my Christmas gift basket from Sweet Treats for BBTB2.  If you scroll down one post, I have a Christmas card using the Winter Frolic cartridge for Exploring Cricut!

Peppermint gift basket (for BBTB2)

Our marvelous DT leader Susan has challenged us to make a holiday gift container for our BBTB2 challenge this week.  I don't have many cartridges that make 3D items, but I found this cute little gift basket on the Sweet Treats cartridge.  I decorated it with peppermint cuts from the Simply Charmed cartridge and I've filled it up with real peppermints for a sweet holiday treat!   Can't you imagine leaving this on a co-workers desk for a delicious surprise?  I decided to make the handle from ribbon instead of paper so I could jam lots of peppermints in there.  I also added some stickle to my peppermint, mostly because it's just so darn fun and sparkly!

You will be amazed at all the cool projects the design team has made at BBTB2, so take a look and then play along with your own project!

Christmas Cheer snowman card (for Exploring Cricut)

We have a great challenge to help you get ready for the holidays- it's a Christmas card challenge!  All you have to do is make a Christmas card with a cut from your cricut on it somewhere.  My card was inspired by the fun Doodlebug snowman background paper (from the North Pole collection), which clearly needed a big snowman accent!  My snowman is from the Winter Frolic cartridge, although I had a hard time making up my mind which cricut snowman to use (there are so many cute ones…).   The red polka dot strip at the bottom is not ribbon, but a scrap of paper from the collection!

Let's Be Merry Christmas card (for BBTB2)

It is my turn to host the BBTB2 challenge this week and since Christmas is right around the corner, I thought getting some Christmas cards ready seemed like a great challenge theme!  The design team at BBTB2 has made some fantastic cards to inspire you.  I used this cute ornament on the CM Tis the Season cartridge for my card.  I wanted something kind of fun and fresh and this Doodlebug North Pole paper was exactly what I had in mind!

3 French Hens Christmas card

I've always wanted to make a 12 days of Christmas series of Christmas cards using Joys of the Season, and this year I finally found some paper from Graphic 45 that inspired me to actually create them!  So here is the 3 French Hens card (don't ask me why I started with the french hens-it just happened, lol).  I sanded and inked the basket just a bit after embossing it since it looked kind of plain otherwise.  The hen and basket are from Joys of the Season and the lettering is from Artbooking.  The print paper is from the Graphic 45 12 days of Christmas patterns and solids 6x6 pack.

Merry and Bright Christmas card (for Exploring Cricut)

It's my day for the daily project at Exploring Cricut!  Have you been making any Christmas cards yet?
It's time to get started!   I've been inspired by a 6x6 pack of the Doodlbug North Pole collection paper-it was so cute that I couldn't wait to dive into creating some cards!  I used the Winter Frolic cartridge to make this card and added some stickle to make the ornaments sparkle!

Giving Thanks layout (for BBTB2 and Exploring Cricut)

Thanksgiving is coming right up and it's a Thanksgiving turkey challenge at BBTB2 and a Count Your Blessings Thanksgiving challenge at Exploring Cricut this week!  I combined both challenges,  making a layout for my Thanksgiving pictures with the Celebrate with a Flourish cartridge.  I embossed Mr. Turkey and the cornucopia with the Swiss Dots folder on my Cuttlebug for some extra texture, although it didn't show up very well in the pictures, unfortunately.  The beautiful paper is from an old Bo Bunny collection left over from last year (I've kind of been paper-hoarding these last bits of it....probably need a twelve step program or something, lol!).

Whipping up a turkey for our challenges will be a lot easier than whipping up a turkey for Thanksgiving, so I hope you will join in with a Thanksgiving project!  I will be working at the hospital on Thanksgiving day, so someone else will have to do the turkey cooking at our house this year-fingers crossed that they will save me some leftovers, lol!

White on White Christmas card (for BBTB2)

It's time to get to work on those Christmas cards!  Our challenge at BBTB2 this week is to make a white on white Christmas card.  I'm very fond of the polar bear on Joys of the Season, as he kinda reminds me of that old Coke commercial, so I decided to use him for my white card.

I added some embossing to give some texture to the all white cuts.  I also felt like my polar bear deserved a scarf in sparkly Christmas red to celebrate the holidays!  The sentiment stamps on the inside are from a My Pink Stamper set.

Happy Birthday card (for Exploring Cricut)

It's my day to share the daily project at Exploring Cricut today and I have a birthday card for you.  We jokingly call this the "birthday season" around our house, as there are numerous birthdays occuring through the fall!  When I saw this fun happy Bo Bunny paper from the Surprise collection, I knew it would be PERFECT for a unisex birthday card for the stash.  The "happy birthday" is from the cricut Sweet Treats cartridge, accented with a tiny pearl for the dot on the i.

Happy note:  Son#1 liked it so much that he snatched it off my table for one of his friends!

I have two posts today...

It's a brand new Monday-not sure I'm ready for the week, even with the extra hour of sleep from daylight savings!  Just below is my post for the Cricut choice challenge at Exploring Cricut.  Scroll down one post for my bookmark post for the BBTB2 football challenge.  I hope your week is full of good things and maybe a little bit of fun!

The Brick music club layout (for Exploring Cricut)

We have a fun Cricut choice challenge for you this week at Exploring Cricut!  Use one patterned paper, 2 cricut cuts, and 3 colors.  I made a music layout, for pictures from a music club.  (Son#1 was playing  a local club called The Brick with his bluegrass band.)  I used the CM Be Young cartridge for my guitar, music notes, and fancy frame.  The title font is the Roly Poly font from Plaintain Schoolbook.  You could use any musical instrument and frame (Elegant Edges has great frames) to make this work for any kind of musical performance.  The print papers, which I fell in love with, are from the Simple Stories Smarty Pants collection.  I really like the fun guitar on this cartridge-feels kind of rock and roll!

Football bookmark (for BBTB2)

Do you have a football fan in your life?  Our amazing DT leader Susan has selected a man-themed football challenge for us at BBTB2 this week.  As the Kansas City Chiefs have started the season at an improbably amazing 9-0, enthusiasm is running high here in KC and everyone has broken out their  Chiefs fan gear!  I made a bookmark, which Son #3 requested to use at school, for my football project.  I am planning to put a number on the player as soon as Son#3 decides WHICH player he wants it to be.    You can check out the rest of the design team's man projects over at BBTB2 and join our challenge!

The bookmark itself is from Plaintain Schoolbook, cut at 6 inches (along with the shadow).  I used the Roly Poly font from Plaintain Schoolbook for my Go Chiefs.  The adorable little football player is from Everyday Paperdolls, along with the goal and grass.  I added some twine to finish it off.  Superquick and Son #3 was happy!

Ghastly Poisons Halloween layout (for BBTB2)

Halloween is almost here!  Our BBTB2 challenge this week is trick or treat, selected by my awesome DT sister Jayne.  Now that my kids are bigger, I am finally able to make some creepy (as opposed to cute) Halloween layouts!

I used the A Frightful Affair cartridge to do this layout, featuring a mad scientist and witch cooking up some poison for their trick or treaters...(all the sugar from the Halloween candy is sort of like poison, lol!).   There are a few creepy mice and bats roaming around on this stormy night (it HAS to be a stormy night to make this poison, you see) to complete the scene.  And of course, we can't forget the awesome bubbling beakers of evil!  My print papers are from the Echo Park Apothecary Emporium collection from last year.

Scary Party Halloween layout (for Exploring Cricut)

I have the fun of doing the daily project at Exploring Cricut today!  It's almost Halloween-have you been able to stay away from the Halloween candy?  I'll confess I've slipped a few times and found myself nibbling on contraband candy!!!

But on to my project:  I've been dying to use the cute little Halloween teddy bears on the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge, so I cut them out for my layout (for the elementary school fall party pictures of Son#3).  The title is from Create A Critter 2.  (The word party is actually part of another title, but I just added it onto my scary title!)  I added a few other cuts from CAC2 as well.  The bat background paper is from an old DCWV stack.

I have two posts today:

I woke up today with a smile on this Monday morning, because I got to spend yesterday afternoon scrapping with my Mom and BFF!  I had so much fun seeing all the cool crafty stuff they were making AND we got to laugh and catch up on all the latest gossip.  Good times!  But on to the crafty stuff:  just below is my post for the BBTB2 pumpkin challenge, using the Artbooking cartridge.  Scroll down one post for my Halloween layout for the Exploring Cricut challenge, using Happy Hauntings.  Hope you have a super Monday!  

Fall Festival Fun pumpkin layout (for BBTB2)

It's that time of year for pumpkins and hot chocolate and all things fall!  Our challenge at BBTB2 this week is to use a pumpkin on a project-and there are lots of cricut pumpkins to choose from!  I decided to try the pumpkins on my new Artbooking cartridge for some fall festival pictures from a few weeks ago.  All the cuts are from Artbooking, including the overlays and vine on both pages.  All  were cut at 11 inches except the pumpkins and leaves.   (I had to experiment with the sizes for the pumpkins and leaves to find something that worked -I couldn't use real dial size because then the layers wouldn't cut properly.)   I just used some cheap white cardstock while experimenting until the pumpkins and leaves cut at the size I wanted.

October 31 layout (for Exploring Cricut)

It's almost time for Halloween and that is our challenge theme at Exploring Cricut this week!  I have a spooky cemetery layout for today, complete with the headless horseman, a black cat, and a skeleton!   My boys are big enough to want to be creepy rather than cute with their Halloween costumes, so I wanted my layout to reflect that.    The paper is from an old DCWV stack, which got my layout started, with the creepy tree and cemetery.  I just added some spooky goodness with the headless horseman, skeleton, and black cat.  (Plus a few more tombstones and the bat.)  I used Happy Hauntings for all my cuts, including the October 31 title.

listen to your heart card (for BBTB2)

My lovely DT sister Brenda has chosen "health awareness" for the challenge theme at BBTB2 this week.  As an ICU nurse, heart disease is a huge problem I see affecting lives every day (I work many of my shifts in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit).  Women especially tend to underplay or ignore symptoms of heart attacks or heart disease because we are busy taking care of everyone else but not ourselves.  I encourage all of you to pay attention to your own health and know your numbers:  blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar.  If any of these are out of the normal range, make the time to do those lifestyle changes and improve them!  And take your medications, if you have prescriptions!  (I am regularly astounded at people who do not take their meds or have no idea what their meds are for.)

Alright, so enough healthy talk and on to the actual card I made.  I used the CM Be Young cartridge for the saying on the front "listen to your heart", which I thought was perfect for heart health awareness.  The fun frame was part of the image!  The inside, which I neglected to take a picture of, has more hearts (I have already given this card away, so I can't go back and get a pic).

Show us what health cause is dear to your heart with a project and link it up back at BBTB2!

Please keep Brenda and her family in your prayers, as they are suddenly dealing with some very serious health issues at this time.

Ride'em Cowboy layout

Today is my turn for the daily project at Exploring Cricut!  I made a western themed layout for you today, for some pictures of my fellas at Silver Dollar City last summer.  I used the Old West cartridge for all the cuts except the barn, which is from Create A Critter.  I especially was taken with the wood grain frame cut for my journal box!  My paper has been in my stash so long that I have NO idea where I got it.

I have two posts today:

It's a marvelous sunny Monday-ready for the week?  I have two posts to get your scrapping week kick-started (possibly I watched too much football yesterday...).  Just below is my post for the Exploring Cricut Happy Birthday blog hop, where I have another birthday layout using Artbooking.  If you scroll down one post, I have our fall leaf challenge from BBTB2, also using Artbooking, along with the CM Cheerful Seasons cart.  I hope your week is full of some lovely weather and fall fun!

Happy birthday layout #2 with Artbooking (for Exploring Cricut)

We are having a blog hop to celebrate Exploring Cricut's 3rd birthday!   (You should have arrived here from the fabulous Michelle N's blog.)  So I have a birthday layout for you using the new Artbooking cartridge!  I just got Artbooking last month for MY birthday gift and this  is my second birthday layout using it.  (You should be able to find the other one under the Artbooking tab on the sidebar.)

All my cuts are from Artbooking (except the circles), including the frame around the picture.   Note:  I cute the number 15 and the "on this day" using real dial size (as they were not on pages sized for what I wanted to make).  The picture frame and celebrate were cut at the 11 inch size indicated on their handbook page.  The make a wish, cake, and banner are part of the cute Bo Bunny Surprise paper.

Autumn Days layout (for BBTB2)

Our BBTB2 wonderful leader Susan has selected the maple leaf from Art Philosophy for our challenge this week, but since I don't have that cartridge, I went with a similar leaf on Artbooking.  The title font is also from Artbooking.  The scarecrow, basket of apples, and wheelbarrow are all from the CM Cheerful Seasons cartridge.  The pretty print papers are from the Doodlebug Happy Harvest collection, which if you a paper junkie like me, is really really cool!

Artbooking-title font, leaves
CM Cheerful Seasons-all other cuts

Note:  Artbooking is proving to be a bit tricky for me, if I'm not cutting the projects exactly as shown, for the sizing.  I used the real dial size for my cuts from Artbooking, as I was using individual elements (the font and leaves).   Also, there is no shadow for the font, so I cut it twice and offset it to give a shadow effect.

We'd love to see you link up with us at BBTB2 with a leaf project-you can check out all the fabulous projects the DT has made for inspiration!
