It's been over a year since my last post and I have so much to share...
First, I have left the Cricut world and have decided to go with the Silhouette Cameo. I LOVE the Silhouette and the software. No more wasted paper on shredding from the blade AND NO MORE cartridges! Woohoo! Yup, you can cut your own designs and even purchase individual cuts!! Yes, it was a good move...
Keep your eyes out for projects I have been working on this past year...
I have finally designed a cute box for those ever so popular Hershey Nuggets! I used my Gypsy (not sure i know how to use my Cricut without it anymore!) and the matchbox from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.
I have a few designs... I have the window box pictured here and one without the window (will post later).
So one of my New Year's Resolution is to be more creative... like actually doing something and not just looking to see what others are doing. I know, it's March, the end of March, to be more precise but it's better late than never, right? Well Jinger Adams is having a design team call for her new line. Super exciting and super happy for her!! Way to go Jinger! What a great excuse to get going again.
Here is my submission for Jinger's design team call:
To make this card I used: kraft cardstock for the card base from Joann's Nestabilities for the "hello" base the ribbon I had in my stash and I sprayed it with a Smooch Spray the pearls are Recollections Stickles for outline the "hello" base Making Memories and K & Company paper I used my Cricut for the swirls cut and the yellow paper is from Bazzil
To create the flower in the middle I used the carnation dimensional flower punch by EK Success, rolled the edge and used hot glue on the bottom to keep it from unraveling. Then I "fluffed" the petals a bit.
I hope you enjoyed the card! I would love to see your version!
I just love, love these cones! I used this using my Cricut and Tie The Knot cartridge. I hid the predone holes and made my own to fit what I wanted. Now I do love the scallop but wished there was a cut without it. I guess for now, this will have to do. I used my Gypsy and was able to fit 2 on a page. I first cut them out with cardstock but it wasn't very pliable. Although the paper I used is normal, it turned out well. I won't be able to put anything to heavy but it's ok. I think these would be cute with some pretzels...
I not only love cupcake boxes but I love boxes of all sorts!
I am capable of using my Cricut to make pillow boxes but while perusing my Michael's I found a pack of 20 for $2.99. I really couldn't pass it up at that price. There's no way I can make that many pillow boxes for $2.99. Yes, they were plain but I knew with my handy dandy Cricut and my right sided brain, I could come up with something... and so I did...
I used my Tim Holtz die for the rosette, Plantin' Schoolbook for the flourish and the butterfly in my stash as well as the ribbon. This size pillow box makes a great gift card holder or for anything small. Someone ordered a scrabble tile necklace from me and it fit perfectly with some tissue paper.
Thanks for looking! I would love to see your thoughts/comments on this!
For Christmas I gave one of my good friends this flameless candle. Many years ago when she was in high school she burned down a portion of her bedroom due to an attended candle. So i wanted to give her something cute and safe :). Yes, a little bit od a koke but it turned out so cute!
I used an edge punch for the band. For the rosette I used Cricut's "Something To Celebrate", Bazzil flowers for the center and recollections pearls. The patterned paper is also from recollections.
