HSN Launch 26th

The E2 is going to be aired on HSN starting at 12:01 on the 26th! I am SO excited! I can't even say how much I want one of these. I made and entered the banner in hopes of a chance to win and I really really hope this is my time. I have entered almost everything and won nothing and I am so confident in this banner. So, this is my "I REALLY hope I win" post so watch the launch and check back here later for the results. I will either be really happy or really really sad! lol

HSN Banner Entry

Here is my banner for the HSN E2 launch on Sept 26th. We were to make a banner that spelled out Cricut and this it what I came up with! I had SO much fun with it and am thrilled with the results! I used the Carousel cart and Stand and Salute for the stars. I used solid cardstock only and vellum - I used my Cuttlebug with a diamond folder for the letters and golden/bronze embossing on the inside of the ticket stubs. I also put a little bit of stickles on each one and punched my holes with a star hole punch - I am into the details! Hope you enjoy!

August Magazine Challenge - Cosmo Cricket!

This month's magazine challenge asked us to use Cosmo Cricket products and the Cuttlebug to create something fun and exciting!
I used the Double Deck pack on my project.

I started with a fun shaped toolbox looking holder from the thrift store and a piece of 2x4 I cut.

I have been working on getting my new craft space set up and this toolbox will hold my extra adhesives. The block is just a fun decoration for my area! I used 2 of the papers from the Double Deck pack - the yellow and the red starburst - LOVED these papers!

I used a script folder for my emboss on both the bird and the white sheet on the block. I then inked in red and embossed so the ink wouldn't smear when I Mod Podged everything.

Organized Chaos is what I call how I craft!

This shelf is another thrift store find that I'm mounting on the wall above my station. As you can see, my walls are red, so the white, black, yellow, and red compliment it well!

This is my favorite, and if I do say so myself, my most ingenious part. I wanted a way to affix the flower on the wood block easy and glue and I and the flowers are not getting along well. So, I used a yellow thumb tack! I added some Stickles to it to make it shimmer and it works perfectly!

I am so thrilled with how they turned out - I love everything about it. Carts I used were Flower Shoppe, Nursery Rhymes, and Sophie - all new carts for my blog usage!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!
