Happy Wednesday All!  We are rockin’ and rolln’ over here in Southern California this morning with the 5.0 earthquake that hit our coast.  I did not feel it since I was on my morning walk, but those always bring on a bit of a buzz among the local folks.

Today over at Decorate to Celebrate, we are kicking off a new challenge with the theme of Graduation.  Whether if it is your little squirt graduating Kindergarten or your kiddo graduating Medical School, it is cause for celebration and we would love to have you LINK up your project to share.

The design team has some great inspirations to kick off this challenge and this is what I made for my nephew who is graduation High School tomorrow!  This is the last of the four boys my brother-in-law and sister-in-law have to walk across the High School podium.  My nephew’s gift is music and he was honored with the Louis Armstrong Jazz Award this year, so I used that as a thread to my theme for his banner.

I cut the base of the banner using my Cricut (had to dust that baby off a bit).  The cart was Country Life cut at 7 inches. I found some cool Lori Whitlock rosettes via the Silhouette Store and I cut those out at 2.8 inches.  The musical notes were a cut from the Silhouette Store as well.   Using some Heidi Swapp Gold Lame Color Shine, I added some shine to the base of the banners. Added some washi tape I got from Paper Issues and Pick Your Plum, I called it done!

Something Sweet Is Cookin’

549034_541247975927154_1604854376_n

Hi all!  First I want to say I am thinking and praying for all the tornado victims and their families in Oklahoma and my heart just goes out to those that were affected by this horrendous storm.  I lived in Dallas, Texas, 14 years ago and I had experienced a few myself, but nothing of this magnitude, so I can’t even imagine what these communities are going through.  I will be thinking of these sweet fellow Americans often.

Today is my first designer post over at Jinger Adams! It is a project that I had the honor of being featured under the bright lights of the HSN studio last month during her new collection launch.  The poor hubs was dragged out of bed at 6 AM to watch her shows with me!  I think that was his first time ever watching HSN!

Here is the sneak peek of something sweet I have cookin’ over at Jinger Adams today!

Teachers vs Cootie Monsters!

DTC-Designer

Happy Wednesday!  Today over at Decorate to Celebrate do you have a fun challenge that will help bring smiles to educators!  It is a teacher gifts or classroom party challenge.  How perfect is that?  It is getting to the end of the year and many of you all will have to start coming up with ideas for your kiddo’s teacher and class room celebrations!  The design team has a ton of amazing inspirations to glean ideas from!

DSC_6726

Here is what I cooked up.  I am a 100% germ-a-phobe.  I think being so sick for all nine months during both of my pregnancies made it worse, so the thought of the stomach flu hitting our house just sends me into the fetal position.  Having teacher friends that teach in elementary school settings, they are about as bad as me, so I decided that any teacher of small children would love to receive this instead of the traditional apple.

DSC_6727

This was actually so easy to make! I cut down some designer paper from Stampin’ Up and used my ATG to adhere it to the bottle of hand sanitizer.  I then took some ribbon and wrapped it around the bottle and used a Glue Dot to fasten it to the front of the bottle. Now for the fun part!  Heading over the the Silhouette Store, I found this Lori Whitlock tag (Circle Banner) with the pennants on it.  I changed up the size to be around 3 inches around and changed up the colors of the tag layers and pennants.  I then added the little saying I made up using  a font I found at the Silhouette Store.  I grouped together everything and printed out on my color printer and then cut out on my Silhouette!

How easy was that? You could whip out a ton of these babies in no time flat!  Head over to DTC and check out the inspirations and LINK up your own teacher gift/class room party idea!  I can’t wait to see what you have cooked up!

DSC_6657Happy Monday all!  I can’t believe we are already in May and all that the month of May brings!  Thankfully Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog’s challenge lines up with something I needed to scratch off my to-do list! Yay! It is a Graduation inspired project using at least ONE Cricut cut.

I busted out Everyday Pop-Up Cards and cut the cap at 4 inches.  I then headed over to the Silhouette store and found some musical notes and cut them out at 1 1/2 inches.  My nephew is graduating HS this month and he received the Louie Armstrong Jazz Award for all his accomplishments in music while he was at HS.  This kid can play anything he picks up.  Oh to have that talent!

DSC_6658

I found some paper that had music terms from DCWV School Stack and followed the school colors for the cap using Papertreyink.com and DCWV Glitter Stack.  I finished the cap using twine from The Twinery and some CANDi for the tassel and sentiment form My Pink Stamper retired collection with Close to My Heart Slate ink. I hit the notes with gold Sickles!

For the envelope, I just added some of the DCWV paper cutting it down to fit as an insert and punching the top with a MS punch.  I scored the crease and used my ATG to have it stick inside the envelope!  I think it adds a more personal feel to the whole project!

Easy breezy lemon squeezy  yet it has a lot of personal touches.  Now head over and LINK up your Graduation project using at least ONE Cricut project!

A Birthday that “Bears” Celebrating!

DSC_5823[1]

Happy Monday all!  If you came over from Fantabulous Circut Challenge Blog‘s recent challenge, you are in the right place.  If you are just joining me, you need to head over to FCCB and check out the fun inspirations that the amazing design team has in cooked up.  This week’s theme is Fun with Puns.  All you need to do is make a project using at least ONE Cricut cut and have a fun pun to go along with your project theme!  I can’t wait to see what you got up your sleeves!

This week I decided to kill two birds with one stone and make my oldest daughter’s birthday invitations while keeping this challenge in mind.  We will be celebrating at Build -A – Bear Workshop this year, so I had to get my paws on the new Teddy Bear Parade Cricut Lite Cartridge!  Oh my did we have a hard time deciding what bear theme to use.  The soon-to-be birthday girl decided upon a cute ballerina bear!

For the sentiment tag, I pulled out my Silhouette and printer and put them both to work!  I created this by piecing different images from the stock images that come with the Studio software.  I came up with the pun on the fly and threw it all together pretty quickly. I inked the edges headed straight for my Circut to start on the cute little bears!

DSC_5824[1]

Using Cricut Craft Room, I designed the bears to be around 3 inches and built them from there.  I added some faux stitching, inked a bit around the edges and some cute bling flowers and called it a day!  Having to make many of these, is a bit timed consuming, but I had a great little helper!  The base paper I used was from American Crafts  Hip, Hip, Hooray! 6×6 paper stack I found at Target!  LOVE THIS PAPER!  I used the paper from the same stack for the tutu and shoes.  I added some bubblegum pink crinkle ribbon from Kristen Swain. These invites fit in an A2 envelope!
