Favorite Project of the Year Challenge at Cooking with Cricut.......

Welcome to Cooking with Cricut Challenge # 66- Favorite Project of the Year.
 The baby shower decorations I made for my sister is definitely my favorite project of this past year.   Crazy thing is, I live in Nevada and my sister lives in Kentucky so everything had to be mailed across country and I didn't even get to attend the shower to see how pretty everything looked!

I used the Animal Kingdom cartridge for the entire project.  I made a word book, 16x20 shadow box, door hanger, thank you cards, welcome baby banner, and table centerpieces. 

Here's my original post:  A Jungle Baby..... for more photos and details. 

I made this word book on my Gypsy with the baby's name Wylder, cut from cereal boxes.

This is the 16 x 20 shadow box that I made for her and I incorporated the cute little giraffe wall hanger that I found into box also.  The shadow box is in a white frame which was removed for the photo do to glass glare. 

One of the 3 table centerpieces.

"Welcome Wylder" banner.  I wish I had a better photo of the banner.   My sister loved it so much she hung it up in her house.    There are more photos of the banner on  my original post  A Jungle Baby .  

My inspiration photo from little Wylder's nursey before he was born.  

Thanks for looking!

    Welcome to day #17 of  the 25 Days of Christmas Crafting at Cooking with Cricut. Today's creations are based on Angels and Messenger's of God.  When I think of angels I think of Peace so I decided to design a Christmas card reflecting this message.

Holiday Pinwheels..

     Welcome to Snow Much Fun Blog Hop with Getting Cricky!. If you've came from Debbie's   page then you're in the right place, if you've just fell upon my post then head over to Getting Cricky so you can start from the beginning.

For this Snow Much Fun Hop, I decided to make Holiday Pinwheels showcasing Kristal's fabulous Winter Wishes Sentiments stamps.

Pinwheels are a simple and easy way to make a quick decoration or could be used as a centerpiece for a holiday table.

Paper Coffee Cup Tutorial...

   I'm sharing a tutorial today on how to make Paper Coffee Cups that can be filled with Christmas treats.

I made these cups on a score board and cut various tags using Cricut Gyspy Wanderings.  I used K.Andrews Designs- Winter Wishes Sentiments to stamp a little Christmas Cheer.

Ho Ho Ho.....Good Ol' Saint Nick Banner

I just love Christmas music, I'm one of those people that could listen to it all year round.   I decided to create a hanging Santa door banner that reminds me of the classic Christmas Song:

Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn't go?
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn't go?
Up on the housetop, click, click, click
Down thru the chimney with good Saint Nick

Here's how I made Ol' Saint Nick on my Gypsy:

Paper Doll Dress Up- Santa head  & hat cut at 15.94".
Elegant Edges- Banner base cut at 6.02".
Gypsy Wanderings- Banner base layer cut at 4.65".
Alphalicious- Ho Ho Ho font cut at 3.35".

I choose to attach the banner together with a large black grosgrain ribbon and used white glitter paper for the layers and hat to add a little sparkle.
 I used  K. Andrews Designs- Winter Wishes sentiments to stamp various sayings that you may hear Santa say.

Thanks for looking & Merry Christmas!

Santa and Friends Christmas Treat Bags.......

How cute are these little guys?  My idea started with  Snow Cute then I wanted to see who else I could create so I included Rudolph, an Elf and of course Santa to my Christmas Treat Bag family.

Santa and Friends Christmas Treat Bags

I used the following Cricut Cartridges and my Gypsy to make these Treat Bags:

  • Life's a Party- Backpack cut to make bags
  • Paper Doll Dress Up- Elf and Santa
  • Doodlecharms- Reindeer

Gingerbread House...

It's become a tradition with my kids to make a Gingerbread House or Tree during the holidays.  When my kids were real little they called it a "KiKi House".  I'll be honest, the Gingerbread Tree has been made more than the House.  There seems to be very little patience waiting for the sides of the house to dry before the candy decorating can occur.  That's why I really like this paper house, no icing needed just a hot glue gun and a Cricut of course!

I used a variety of cartridges to decorate this house, 6 in total along with 4 different embossing folders.
To showcase how K. Andrews stamps sets can be mixed and matched, I incorporated a few stamps sets into my Gingerbread House too.

Snowman Treat Bag...

Welcome to Cooking With Cricut 25 Days of Crafting Fun-Day #2,  Snow Theme.  Today's designs are all about those adorable snowman or snow projects.

I'm sharing a Snowman Treat Bag that can be filled with cozy treats.  He's just Snow Cute too!
