Use a Cart Challenge - Week 2

This week's use a cartridge challenge asked us to use Create a Critter. Well, I just LOVE Create a Critter and I really didn't do it justice with my layout, but I needed to do this layout for my book I plan on finishing this year, so I went with it! The fish is the only cut from CAC - the pole is from Boys Will Be Boys, "Fishing" from Hannah Montana and the other letters are rub ons!

Just Some Cards!

Got some cards to show today. I wanted to play around with some stamps and with inspiration from a card out of the January Cricut Magazine, I came up with this. LOVE Art Nouveau (think I've mentioned that once or twice) and love playing with ribbons, and I'm really happy with how this turned out!

Recently got Tinkerbell and Friends (though I've stalked it for a LONG time!) and it is fabulous! It's been a while since I've played with my glimmer mist, so I got it out and used it to create my background! I made this for a little girl's 5 year birthday.

And just for fun, I found a tutorial on making fabric flowers out of jersey and with my scissors and glue gun, came up with this hair clip in minutes!

Dec/Jan Craftroom Contest

Here is my submission for the magazine contest. I did enjoy the size and ease of craftroom, but it is very inconvenient for me to shuffle my E to the other room and try and set up tables to print, so I most likely will not be using it. It also was a bummer that I needed carts to print (I store them at my friend's house where we do most of our crafting) so I was unable to print the first time I had everything set up. It looks like there might be some place to link carts, so that could solve that issue, but since I have my Gypsy and can move that anywhere to design and print instead of moving my E, I will most likely just stick to that. That being said, here is my design with Craftroom. Of course a layout of my kiddos and very different from my usual LOs. I used Paper Trimmings and Nursery Rhymes and fancied it up with some ribbon, a sticker for the center, and some sanding on my paper. I have another side to this, so I will try and post that tomorrow!
