If you landed here randomly and would like to join the Hop please start at the beginning at Cricut Cardz Challenge. Be sure you start there because Mary has some great Blog Candy to give away!

For my Hop project I decided to make a magnetic Easter scene. I love crafting with my five year old Nephew so I knew I wanted to make a project that you could do with kids. I also wanted the project to be one that could be made in a short amount of time. I think little ones will love to help make this project as much as they love playing with it. My Nephew tested this out and loved it. He has since requested a red Easter Basket of his own. Please watch the video below to see my project in action!

Hi Crafty Friends! I’m so excited to share today’s card with you. I made it for Tacky Tuesday’s Challenge. The challenge is to use the Whale from the Create A Critter cartridge and make a play on words for the sentiment. I love puns, especially ones that are animal related. So I had a lot of fun making this card. If you would like to join the challenge go to FaceBook and search “Tacky Tuesday’s Challenge” and join the group.

She's still adorable even when she's sad.

Patterned paper from Me & My Big Ideas. Her little tear and spout are covered with Crystal Effects.

I typed the sentiment on my computer using Kristen ITC at 16 point.

I used my Gypsy to get the frown on my whale. To see a complete tutorial on how to do this click here to watch my YouTube video.

Gypsy image of creating the whale frown.

In the image above I have grouped together two top layers for the whale. For image #1 in red, I hid the mouth. For image #2 in grey, I hid the body, flipper and both eyes. Next I rotated the image so it was upside down and then aligned it’s mouth where image #1′s mouth was. Then I welded them together.  When you press the eyeball key to preview your cut, you will see the image below.

Gypsy preview of final cut. One sad little whale.

Hello Crafty Friends! How are you today? I’m doing good. It’s a chilly 48 degrees out but the sun is shining so that makes me happy! I have a couple crafty projects I’m going to fit into my schedule today. Are you working on any projects?

Today I’m sharing a card I made for two challenges. The first is Mary’s challenge at Cardz Tv. The challenge is to make project with a cupcake on it. The second is Robyn’s challenge at My Pink Stamper. The challenge is to make a project with a birthday theme. For a closer look please click on the pictures.

 

I love that cupcake!

 

I used my swirls cuttlebug embossing folder and glitter to make the cupcake extra cute and yummy!

 

Happy Birthday is from The Greeting Farm - Happy Chef, Cupcake is from Basic Grey - Cakes.

 

I used the cupcake from the Create A Critter cartridge, patterned paper, Fiskars threading water punch, swirls embossing folder, glitter, ribbon and a stamped sentiment. I kept the card clean, simple and cute!

Thank you so much for coming by and leaving a comment. I appreciate it so much! Have a wonderful Thursday! :)

Good morning! I hope everyone is having a good week so far! Today’s card is my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #46. This weeks challenge is “Anything Goes”. So you can use any cartridges, colors and theme you’d like! Couldn’t be easier to play along. And I hope you do!! I have enjoyed seeing all your beautiful and creative cards. Also I would like to say thank you so much for all your kind and sweet comments. I really do appreciate each one and they totally make me smile!

So with that said, here’s my card. I used the Create A Critter cartridge, sentiment and starfish is from Stampin’ Up, Crab and Company (retired set). After I took pictures I decided to add some white stitching around the sandcastle door. To see a video of me explaining how I made this card in detail click here to be taken to my youtube video.

That little crab is killing me with his cuteness! I hope you love it as much as I do. Be sure to stop by Cricut Cardz Challenge and play along this week. You may be the lucky winner and be entered into the grand prize drawing for October!!! Have a wonderful day. Hugs!

I also entered this card into My Pink Stamper‘s “Make Something Cute” challenge!

 

Snappy Birthday to all the October babies!

 

 

A little glitter on the starfish makes him super happy!

 

 

I <3 this crab! There's no way you can look at him and not smile. Just look at those glittery little cheeks! :)

 

 

I made the gems with crystal effects and copic markers! They are so pretty and easy to make. The shell is cut from iridescent vellum paper.
