The challenge over at MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES is to use snowflakes.

I found this snowflake card stock and loved how the snowflakes are red and green and not a blue, silver or white. I decided to make this gift box for Christmas.

The snowflake box is from Cricut Access cuts or the Wrap It Up cartridge.
The Tag is from Tags, Bags and Boxes. 

Used a White Pen and ATG. The paper is DCWV from The Christmas book.

Please come join us at Moving Along With The Times for our Snowflakes challenge.

Over at Moving Along with the Times we are following a sketch by fellow member Carole:

I followed the sketch with some fall color papers by Fancy Pants

I cut these on my cricut creating the down-line strips by welding a circle and a rectangle, a rectangle for the cross bar and a circle behind the pumpkin.  The pumpkin is from Miss Kate's Cuttables.

Use Acetate

This focal image is Cricut cut is Aspen Trees from the Dimensional Paper Art Cartridge I lined the back of the trees with a medium blue and then chalked a light blue over the lower half of the focal point.

This shaker card material requirements:

  • White card stock
  • Dark Blue card stock
  • Medium Blue card stock
  • Light Blue card stock
  • clear transparency/acetate sheet
  • foam tape
  • high-tack, double-sided tape

  • Aspen Trees Image
  • turquoise ink
  • chunky glitter
  • snowflakes

My outer square was lawn fawn thin die cuts in successive sizes

I progressively measure inward to create each frame and then sewed the frames together Cut window/acetate sheet slightly smaller than outside dimensions of frame. Line frame with high-tack, double-sided tape and peel release liner from tape. Place window sheet onto back of frame and burnish well.

I then added a white dot at each 5th stitch and began adding the outer snowflakes.

 Inside of the card all ready for a sentiment like:  "Baby it's cold outside" or "Brrrr" or "Let It Snow."

Back To School

These stamps are from Close To My Heart Back To School set.  They are cute little kids and the card was fun to make. I colored them with Copic Markers and used some scrap paper that I used for the background and inside the card.

I stamped the definition of "Learn" and an apple on the inside.
I love a finished card meaning the insides are done too.
Here is a close-up of the stamp.

Clean and Simple

The challenge at Moving Along With the Times is Clean and Simple (CAS) my card is just that.....

The scooter is cut from Cricut cartridge Cutie Characters, the hearts and cloud are basic shapes. I cut the moped 3 times to give a bit of depth, cut the hearts all at once and colored them with copic markers.  Glued a heart on each end of the string trim.

True to it's name the pictures are placed directly on the base, cleanly and simply and the card is made!

The challenge over at Moving Along With The Times is a monochrome project.  I decided to use this challenge for my mother's day card and create this monochrome project:

I used 4 cut layers for the mom layer, the daisy flower embossing folder and the divine swirls folder for the background.

I used the Martha Stewart Branch punch for the white branches and white pearls for the center.

This is a close up look of the layers I used for the Mom and for the inside of the card.  Come Join us at Moving Along With The Times

For You Florals for playing over at Moving Along With The Times

This pop up flower box is a Elizabeth Design Die that I picked up at one of those Scrap Expos.  It really is a "wow" when received and that's good because it's a lot of work.
I used premade recycled paper flowers, "Stick-em" centers and a series of those centers to create the curlicue around the bottom of the flower basket. 

The paper is fancy pants and the card stock is Nina White. I know just who is going to receive this piece of hard work.

Slow things down

I loved this card because this time of the year seems to fly and I'd like to slow things down, so I decided to make this sloth:

It was a lot to put together but afterwards, I really loved the look of this sloth hanging on a Christmas tree limb. 

Hope you get to enjoy every single day of the season! 
Merry Christmas!

We need a little Christmas.........

Halloween - Rob and Bob

I found this card on the series of Rob and Bob cards on the Cricut Design site and I love them! This was a very easy card to do and I love just using the creat it now feature instead of building my own complete card.  But I also love that I can customize it too! 


Our prize sponsor at Fantabulous Cricut is
I made this square card with this adorable blob monster

I added the boo from Cricut Holiday Cakes, some splats stickers, rhinestones and a bobble eye just for fun.  Printable Createables are great, give them a check out at..........

It's Pumpkin Time

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #336-Pumpkins
Make a project about pumpkins. But there has to be a least one cut from the Cricut Library!

And the prize is-

A $10 coupon code for anything in the store!
To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

My contribution was this pumpkin box from It's Fall In The Details cartridge and I will tell you it was not an easy project.  It took me 3 hours! 
I had to stop to eat lunch because the project was taking so long. 

I am glad to get into the fall decorations and things though.  It's a fun season to decorate and soak in the rich colors of change.  It could go ahead and be cooler here in Texas.  I think I would like that. 

The box is fully lined, I forgot to take a picture of that, but you really have to concentrate that you're getting the top the right size to fit on the box and it does not feel like a good fit.  I would not recommend this particular project.  Cricut has many other pumpkin boxes that are better fits. 

That's just my opinion.
