Fantabulous Cricut Crawl

Welcome to Crafty Go Lucky and the second "Fantabulous Cricut Crawl"...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop!

If you've come from visiting the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog, you're in the right place, I am the first stop! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE.

In honor of Back To School time, we're calling our second Fantabulous Cricut Crawl "Button Up For School"...each design team member will be featuring a button somewhere on their project!

Each Design Team member will be featuring an original project featuring a button AND a Cricut cut somewhere on the project. Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be prizes along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be a grand prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a project meeting the the "Button Up For School" challenge criteria!

How fun is that?


I really wanted to make a layout of my son working on his letters. He has made such progress, and really loves to practice writing his name! I used several cartridges: apple- Home Accents, 2010- Plantin Schoolbook, flower- Paisley,and butterfly- Teardrop. I had thought about lining up my buttons along the side of the picture, but in the end loved the look of buttons scattered across the layout.

Want to win these goodies?? Here's how: Leave a comment on this post, and for a second chance become a follower!
Now it's your turn! See if you can incorporate a button on your own "Button Up For School" project. Make sure to include a Cricut cut somewhere on your project!

Next stop...Sherri's blog, Love, Laughter, and Creations! Go see what she has in store for you today... And when you're done, make sure to link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post to be entered into the contest!

Happy Crawling!

  6. I love this project, it is so rewarding to see your child accomplish something and what a way to cherish that moment then to scrapbook it. I also think that by scrapbooking our moments or being proud of our child they will always have a physical sign of our unending love for them

  9. Oh Val! This is just precious. And how special to remember your son's first attempts at printing. I love all the details - and obvious love - that you've put into this page.
    By the way, I've no clue what Scrapper's Floss is! I'm quite curious so I'm off to Google it now.

  12. What a cute page! Your son is adorable.... I love all the new things that capture memories that can be passed on to our children when they are grown. As a Mom of 5 now grown "kids", I look back at the stickers that I thought were so great when my kids were growing up and I'd "create" somethings cute and wonder "If only I knew THEN what I know now!" :)
