"Enjoy Today"

Today is such a fun day! I am on vacation at Disney World, but I wanted to share with you my project for today. If you've come over from Exploring Cricut, thank you very much. We love all our visitors and friends!

I made a card to give to a friend who I think about often, but don't get to see a lot.

Isn't he so cute?!! The card measures 4x4. Bottom layer 3.75x3.75. The owl is cut at 3 inches from the Paisley cartridge. All paper is from the Melodies and Lace Michael's brand paper.

The pearls are from Michael's dollar bin that I colored black with a Sharpie. Stamp sentiment is from Sweet Anna Bee Designs.

I hope you all can enjoy your day as I am! Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

Love Heart

Hello everyone. I have the daily project today over at Exploring Cricut.
Today I needed to make a simple, yet meaningful card. I can't tell you who it's for though :))

I cut a 3x6 piece of pink cardstock from my scraps. The scallop heart is from CCR Basics that is included with CCR cut at 2.25 and 1.75. The stamp is from Studio G at Walmart.

The top heart is popped up on dimensionals and the entire heart is popped up on the card with dimensionals.
I hope you all enjoy the simple, yet pretty card. It was really quick to make and would take no time at all to make a few of these and give as gifts.

Have a great day and happy crafting!

"Maid"- Summer in Paris

Hello everyone. Today is my project day over at Exploring Cricut. Thanks so much for visiting.

So I made this card using the Summer in Paris cartridge. I love this shape. She is supposed to be a French maid holding a duster, but I think it looks like she could be holding flowers too so that's what I'm going to say she's doing. Lol!

Card is standard A2 size. Shape cut at 3.5 inches. I cut the shape 3 times. First cut the blackout of the shape twice. Then hit shift and cut the intricate shape.
I used the first blackout as my base. Then adhered the intricate cut with dimensionals onto the blackout. For the other blackout cut, I cut the head, legs, feet, arms and flower out and adhered to the intricate cut leaving the design showing exactly what parts I wanted to highlight.

Layer is embossed with swirl cuttlebug folder. Ribbon is from stash.

Thanks for looking and have a great day. Happy crafting!!!

Winter Wonderland Box

Today's project is for Exploring Cricut Challenge Monday. Today's theme is winter wonderland. Make any paper craft, card etc. using a winter theme.

I decided to make a gift box or you can use it for whatever you like.

The box measures about 4x4. I used TBB&M, George and Basic Shapes and Accent Essentials.

For the box, I just made it 12 inches in width. The circle cut out was from George and basic shapes. I just welded the circle onto the box so that it would cut it out. The snowflakes come from accent essentials. I glued them to the box just using some zig 2 way and twine.

I hope you like todays project. Have a great day and happy crafting!
