Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #12

You have got to head over to this week's challenge, it is looking like a baby shower!

I used the Wild Card cartridge to make the polka dot banners (it is a shift function) and the heart is from Sweethearts. I stitched the hearts to the banner then taped it all to a tooth pick. I gave these cupcakes to a friend who had a baby a couple of weeks back, plus a couple of pizzas ;) Kinda nice not to have to cook for a night when a little one makes its way to your family!

All Smiles

Saturday we went to the Children's Museum with the lovely Julie and her adorable daughter. The girls had a ball playing in all of the different rooms. I brought my camera, but forgot to put a memory card in it. OOPS! Thankfully Julie had hers and took tons of cute pictures. Thanks girl!!

I also have posted a new layout over at the Scrapbook Sussies blog. Happy Tuesday all!

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #10

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #10 Bags, Boxes Bonanza include the color Black: Create a 3-D project using the color black anywhere on your project.

I used Once Upon a Princess to make the bag, Celebrations for the scallop circle tag, and the Gypsy Font for the A. This was my first time making a dimensional item, and I wasn't sure how you would know where to fold it... But the Cricut cuts out little edge cuts to help, easy peasy! I am going to use the bag this weekend for my niece's birthday. I have a little charm bracelet to put in the bag.

Fantabulous Cricut Crawl

Welcome to Crafty go Lucky and the Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, our version of a progressive blog hop!

If you've come from visiting Tammy at Mom of Three Addicted to Paper
you're in the right place! If you've just happened upon my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start here.
For the Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, each Design Team member will be featuring a specific element related to using your Cricut. There will be a wide variety of techniques and elements that will be featured so make sure and check out each DT member's blog! There will be prizes along the way AND there will be one grand prize for the participant that incorporates the most featured elements in ONE project!!! How fun is that?

The element that I've chose to feature is...

A food theme- You can either have a food cut or alter a food item (or both- completely up to you!)

For this wall hanging, I have used the Hello Kitty cartridge for the cherry, and the Paisley cartridge for the scallop circle.

Now, if you incorporate my element you will be eligible to win the prize below! I have a mini book, alterable luggage tag, chipboard embellishments, and some stamps all in a cute reusable tote :)

Now it's your turn! See if you can use a food element on a project. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Make sure to link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post to be entered in the contest! Try to see how many elements you can add to your project!!!

Happy Crawling!

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #8

Go check out Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #8! The apple is from Create a Critter and the notebook page shape is from the Printing 101 cartridge. I had a 12x12 scrapbook page that looked like notebook paper, so I thought it would be perfect to use for a school themed project!
