Cricut Circle Blogaversary Recipe Challenge

One of the challenges was we had to use a title, 2 Cricut cuts and 3 buttons. Gavin and I had decided to make fall cookies(the premade ones with the shapes in the middle, lol, he picked out pumpkin ones in the store) so here's what I came up with:




The leaves are from Create a Critter, I omitted the face cuts so I could use my Peachy Keen face stamps on them, they are cut at 1.25" and 1.50". The Pumpkins are cut from Simply Charmed, again, omitted the face cuts to use the stamps, cut at 4.25". I love the fluffy light blue tulle behind the pumpkins and the doodling. It was fun to make, but a lot of work! Oh, and the font is Sunny Day from the Sesame Street Font cartridge. I don't normally get quite so detailed on my scrapbook pages, they're usually pretty simple. Now to just get the pictures printed in the next few days! 

Cricut Circle Magazine Challenge- September

So over at the Cricut Circle Blog they post a magazine challenge every month, September's was to make something with Echo Park Paper Company product and at least 4 Cricut cuts. Now, I have absolutely NO clue how many Cricut cuts are on this project, because there are lot of them, but it was fun!



Now surprisingly there isn't a single Halloween cartridge used on here, lol, I used Paper Doll Dress Up and Create a Critter(for the house). I love all the extras to be found on the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge, it's one of my favorite ones to use. There are at least 15 Cricut cuts on here, lol, so I'm pretty sure I met the requirements. I used Echo Park Happy Halloween Collection, solid card stock from The Paper Company, some Rusty Hinge Distress Ink on the pumpkins, Stardust, Black Diamond & Lime Green Stickles, a face stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps, and some baker's twine from The Twinery. I've been working on this project pretty much since it was announced, the idea for this house just wouldn't leave my head so I did it. Love how it turned out.

Cricut Circle Blogaversary Challenge #6: Sketch Challenge

So this is the last challenge that was given, create a project using the sketch below and at least 2 Cricut cuts. Here's the sketch:

And here's what I did with it:


Details: All patterned paper, plus the 3 stars and the red scallops are from the Animal Soup Boy Collection from My Mind's Eye(LOVE this line). Yellow card stock and the chocolate base by The Paper Company. Onesie cut at 2.25"(duck is part of it), and then I cut 3 more ducks just a bit smaller to use as the top accents(B is for Boy Lite). Scallop circle cut from Lovely Floral at 3.0". All inked edges where done with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo, ducks were all made sparkly with Stardust Stickles, Welcome baby stamp is from My Pink Stamper's Everyday Life set. Pretty basic card using mostly a kit, but I love it. It turned out super cute and could easily work for a boy or girl. 


Cricut Circle Blogaversary Challenge #1

The Cricut Circle Blog had it's first anniversary and they issued a number of challenges. The first challenge was to make a project with a Circle Exclusive Cartridge and use at least 2 Cricut cuts. I used Sophie for mine.

Details: Sophie Cartridge, Butterfly 1, Card 3 feature at 4 inches, also cut the inside line for it(light pink). Finished size of this cut was 4.0" by 5.25". 
Simply Sweet Cartridge, "get well soon" cut at 2.0". 
Green strip cut size 2.25" x 5.25"
Chocolate base cut at 4.25" x 5.37"
I actually layered the finished card from Sophie on a Chocolate card base because I wanted the inside liner of the card to be hidden from the inside. The light pink liner and the green cardstock strip were also embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, and the butterflies were then filled in over the pink with Stardust Stickles. The chocolate ribbon is a velvet ribbon I got at Joann's a year ago, I can't remember who makes it. 

Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge

So the weekly challenge was to make a card in honor of world card making day using at least 2 Cricut cuts. Here's mine:


Details: 
The bird was cut from 3 Birds on Parade at 3.5", and the scallop circle was cut from Lovely Floral at 4.00"
Twine from Divine Twine, stamp from My Pink Stamper's Everyday Life set. 
Patterned Paper by Echo Park from the Little Boy collection, solid cardstock(bird and card base) from The Paper Company, other than the green which is from DCWV. Dimensional Magic by Mod Podge used on the bird's pacifier.
