8th Fantabulous Cricut Crawl and Giveaway – Back to School!

 Hey there and welcome to the EIGHTH Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, Fantabulous Cricut’s version of a Blog Hop! If you’ve come from visiting Amy L. over at The Red Headed Crafter, you’re in the right place! If you’ve just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            It is already that time of the year and we are all getting ready for BACK TO SCHOOL! Each talented Design Team member will be featuring an original BACK TO SCHOOL Project that includes a SCHOOL RELATED  Item, such as crayons, rulers, pencils, book, school bus, etc. along with at least ONE Cricut Cut.  There will be PRIZES along the way at our DT members’ blogs, AND there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a “Back to School” project at FCCB! Now how is that for clearing up the case of the “Monday’s”!
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Before I get into all the details and recipe of the project I want to let you know that I am thrilled to be able to OFFER A FUN GIVEAWAY from Scrapinkris’s Esty Store. You will get to personally pick out FOUR of your favorite crinkle ribbon colors. I will be announcing the winner on Friday.  All you will need to do is leave a comment on what is your favorite Cricut Cartridge and/or crafting supply.  Please be sure to include a way for me to contact you!
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            For my project my four-year old help pick out the inspiration of a bird house for her teacher that she will have this year. I kind of pulled out the kitchen sink of crafting supplies to do this project including recruiting the hub’s bandsaw to cut the pencils and rulers for the roof top.  I used Mod Podge for adhering the paper to the bird house and had some fun with my NEW Cricut Catridge, Doodle Charms! NOW I know why all the fuss over that cartridge and am kicking myself for not getting it sooner!
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Next up is the fantabulous Cicily over at Pink Dalmations Scrapbooker!  What a treat she has in store for you AND DON’T FORGET  to get in the game and link up your project to FCCB’s Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post to be entered into the contest!
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Thanks for sharing a piece of “fantabulous Cricut Crawl” pie with me!

I am a stay at home domestic engineer that has a love for my family, food, writing, crafting, photography and most of all a clean and orderly house. I feel I was born in the wrong era in many things and the only thing I would change if I was a "Donna Reed or June Cleaver" kind of mom is that I would still get to wear my sweats and Crocs while washing the windows.

  27. Awesome job girlie!! What a talent you have! It’s so hard to pick a favorite cartridge, but I’d have to say at the moment it is Doodlecharms. It was one of my first cartridges when I got my first Cricut machine and I still use it regularly.

  34. Beautiful creation, it clearly shows that you have spent a lot of loving work on it. I am very pleased to have you join us this time at Lexi’s Creations, unfortunately I cannot see a mention of our blog in your list of challenges that you have entered into. I realise this could be an oversight so if you wouldn’t mind adding us to your list you would then be considered for a prize at the end of the challenge.
    Your creation is gorgeous and it would be a shame to miss out on being chosen as a winner!!
    Love and hugs

  42. This bird house is soooooo adorable! This is one lucky teacher! My favorite crafting item has got to be Tim Holtz Distress inks, I was only introduced to them a year ago and have managed to collect them all! They are so versatile and since I love vintage they are a must for shading the edges of any vintage image! Along tose lines, I would have to say Sentimentals is one of my faves, but I adore Art Nouveau too. I have Create a Critter and have used it a ton since I purchased it and finally let me say that I just got Simply Charmed last month and it\’s pretty Adorable! Sorry so wordy!

    Blessings,
