Exploring Cricut - Jar of Hearts

Good Morning! Hope your day is off to a great start. Today, I am sharing a project at Exploring Cricut.  I used quite a few cartridges to complete this card and, of course, my Gypsy.

Mason jars are so popular right  now and I was inspired by looking on Pinterest to create this one. I found the jar on the cartridge From My Kitchen and then welded the hearts to the jar. I used the x and y axis to make sure the hearts were even in their rows. The floral bg paper was also tweeked from Elegant Edges. I hid the heart that was in the bottom right corner to get the shape I wanted.

Exploring Cricut - Bag Box or Tag Challenge

Hello Monday! It's time for another fun challenge from Exploring Cricut. This week we are asked to create a bag, box or tag and include 1 ribbon in your project.

I created a box from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and had warmer weather in mind when I chose this particular cut.  I used my Gypsy to size the box on a 12 x 12 mat. I also hid all the cut marks. It would be nice if the marks only scored the paper, however, it gives a cut that I don't like on the finished product. I used my Martha Stewart scorer to crease the areas that need to folded.

This is what it looks like after it is done on the Cricut. The flower pieces have a slit in each of them and the flower slides together. I placed the gold flower on top of that with a glue dot to give a little more dimension. The gold flower was created using the tag image on the same cartridge.

Sending Warm Fuzzies!

Good Morning!! Day 2 of lots of cold and snow. No school again today, and who knows about tomorrow. I love snow days; to be able to stay inside and go nowhere. I created a cute card to send to my oldest who is in even colder weather than we are. I got these cuties last year and haven't played with them much, but they are so quick and happy. When I purchased this set it was just the girl and now it comes with a cute little boy too called Weather Kids.

To create this card I did a print and cut with my Cameo. The images were all ready to go. I did add some Stickles to her cheeks and the snowflakes. I popped the middle snowflake up with a pop dot.  I was in a hurry to get the package in the mail and love how fast I created this.

Hope you stay warm and dry where you are!!
