Baby Girl Card ~ Cricut 3 Birds On Parade

Dear craft friends,

Hope you are all having a great Sunday! It is cold and snowy here in Northern Utah. :( Since I don't like snow that means I have plenty of time to play in my craftroom. YAY!! :) 

Today I am bringing you a Baby Girl card. So many of my friends have just had little girls or are about to have little girls so I made a bundle of these little cuties.  If you have followed my blog in the past this might look familiar, almost 5 years ago I made a large bundle of  Baby Boy cards for a swap I was going to. You can see that post HERE They were a huge hit and I still had tons of the Pattern paper left over. So why not made a girl version. :)

Cricut Cartridge: 3 Birds On Pareade pg # 31

Cake card ~ Cricut Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridge

Hello crafty friends,
Today I have made a simple masculine Birthday card. I don't know about you, but I have a really hard time making cards for men! Because its so hard for me I always feel super excited when I finally have one come out exactly as I envisioned. This is one of those cards, Lol.

For this card I used the Cricut Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. I LOVE this cartridge! This cartridge was one of the very first I got when I got my Cricut 7 years ago. It has so many little cuts that can be used on tons of things, but I tend to over look them and only use the dolls. :( But, not today! 
The cut is one layer that I cut out out 2 times, one in brown, and one in white at 2.2 W x 1.7 H. I cut the Frosting and the cake stand off the white cake and added  cream pearl pen to the frosting and silver pen to the base to make the cake pop. The candle was cut by hand from scraps and the flame was colored with glitter marker.

I am entering my card into the Die Cuttin Divas #250 yum! Chocolate Cake Day

I hope you enjoyed my card and have a great day!!

Card recipe:
Card Size: A2 4.25 x 5.5

Papers: DCWV Christmas & Winter(Blue mat and band), DCWV The Guy Stack (Plaid Papers)

Winter Banner ~ Cricut Speaking Of Winter

Hello crafty friends,
   Today i'm sharing with you a banner I made for my daughter's room. She LOVES winter!! She can't get enough of the snow, sledding, hot cocoa, and the movie Frozen. :) I'm so not a winter person Fall for me all the way! 
She asked me to make a banner for her room and she wanted it before bed time so I decided so go super simple and quick on this one. I used Cricut cartridge Speaking of Winter. In design space you type in whatever word you want for the banner in add text and then go to cricut fonts and pick Speaking Of Winter. (This took me way too long to figure out.)  The banner only took 15 minutes to make + drying time for the Stickles. 


Cricut Cartridge: Speaking Of Winter

Papers: Not sure, I got them at a garage sale

Extras: Ribbon, Stickles

I hope you enjoyed my project and have a great day!!

Baby Bottle Card ~ New Arrival Cricut Cartridge

Hello Crafty Friends,
   One of my goals for 2016 is to use my older Cricut cartridges. I blog-stalk tons of paper crafters and something that I've noticed especially in the last couple of years is that most crafters don't use their older cartridges anymore. Well, I have lots of the older cartridges (and not so many of the new ones) so I am going to try to use the older ones at least once a week and hopefully more than that.

I made this card for my SIL, she had the most perfect little girl a few days ago.  

I am entering this in DoubleClick Skittles Challenge ~ Anything goes

Card Recipe Is:

Size:A2 4.25x5.5

Cricut Cartridge: New Arrival, Baby bottle pg 108

Border Punch: Martha Stewart Scallop 3 dot (I covered the last row of holes)

Papers: MME Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Die: Spellbinders Scallop Circle (I used a hole punch to punch the extra holes)

Stamp: Inkadinkado Welcome Baby

Embossing: Cuttlebug Polka Dots

 I hope you enjoyed my project and have a great day!!
