My Cricut Craft Room - Theme Day Thursday

Today is Thursday which means we are one day closer to Friday...Wahoo!
Today is also my Hubby's Birthday...Yay, I love you baby!

Today at My Cricut Craft Room is Theme Day Thursday and with that we got to use A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge.  I LOVE this cartridge full of fun sillouhettes.
This card is pretty simple, but I really like how it turned out. 
This week I based my cut off of my sentiment and this cut is just perfect.
The sentiment is from Pink By Design's Simply Everything stamp set.

Cricut Cut:
A Child's Year: Button 11, cut at 3.75

To finish up my card I used Divine Twine as the fishing line.

Look Whoo's One - Iron On Vinyl

Happy Wednesday Crafters!

Today's project was created to coordinate with some party decor that I created recently.

I was very excited and honestly a little nervouse to try this Iron on Vinyl.
Come to find out there was nothing to be nervous about. 
This Vinyl was so easy to cut and apply.

Here are my Cricut Cuts:
Create A Critter: Owl is Button 2, cut at 4.75
MS Birthday Cakes: Font Feature all of the letters were cut at 1.0.
I used the Font Shadow Feature for the #1, cut at 5.5.
This was cut twice...once in the lavendar as a whole piece, and the second cut was the Dark Purple with the Birthday Girl's name cut from it. 
This was then overlaped so the light purple would show through.

I designed everything on my Gypsy so I could weld my letters together and overlap letters in the #1.
It is very importatnt to remember to flip your letters vertically so when you go to iron on the vinyl they flip and read can find the flip feature of the Gypsy on the Advanced tab.

I bought the Vinyl online from 
 They also have a great video tutorial that I followed.

I am super happy with how this turned was really easy and worked perfect the first time around.  This is a fun and easy way to personalize fabric.

If you are new to my blog and would like to see all of the coordinating Party Decor that matches this onsie please go Here.

I was hoping to get a picture of the Birthday Girl in her onsie, but she wasn't feeling well and her Mommy didn't get very many pictures.  All of the pictures were of Ryan clinging to Mommy.

This project is being Linked Here for Link Up Tuesday with Pink Cricut.

Ink it Pink Challenge PbD06

This weeks Ink it Pink Challenge is Ribbon.  
So here is what I created for this weeks challenge:

I used the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge for my cuts.
Button 23 on the overlay was selected twice, cut at 3.59 and 2.65.
The Green ribbon cut is Button 9, cut at 2.5.
I designed my card on my Gypsy so I had a better idea of the sizes to make my cuts.

I used two strips of ribbon to accent my cuts...this ribbon was purchased in the $1 bins at Target.    There are 6 different coordinating ribbons that are 18 in each...what a steal!
The ribbon on the bottom was attached to the card with my ATG.
The ribbon above that was attached to the pink cut and then that cut and the ribbon were added to the card with pop dots to give some dimension.

I stamped my sentiment on the ribbon cut...the sentiment is from Pink By Designs Take the Cake.
To finish up the fron of my card I added Black Diamond Stickles around the edge.

For the inside of my card I cut some of the paper from the front of the card in rectangles and stamped a sentiment from Pink By Designs 29 & Holding.
I can tell this is going to be a new favorite of mine!
Since this was a Ribbon challenge I had to add ribbon to the inside of my card as well.

Ink it Pink Challenge PbD05

Happy Wednesday my Crafty Friends,

I just wanted to show a quick card I made for the Ink it Pink Challenge by Pink by Design.
To participated in these challenges we are asked to use Pink by Design stamps with a theme.  This weeks theme is "Show us some sparkle!" is my sparkle:

I used several elements of Sparkle on this card as there is no sparkle discrimination here. :)
I used Shimmer Paper, Glitter Paper, and Rhinestone Bling...Fun!
The Pink By Design stamp used is Shoe Addict, which I won during the last Blog Hop...This stamp set is oober cute.  I don't usually lean towards stamp images as I am all about the sentiments, but this wonderful set has both images and sentiments.  Win! Win!
The sentiment in my picture is a bit hard to read,  it says "Have a Glamarous Birthday".

I added some Divine Twine which can also be purchased at the Pink By Design store to mimick the lace on the adorable shoes.

Here is a side view to show that shimmer and glitter paper

DCWV - the All About Girls Stack and Cardstock Stack
Divine Twine - Purple Plum

Now on to my projects...For this month I am using the following Cricut Cartridges:
Create A Critter, Gypsy Wanderings, Birthday Cakes, Something to Celebrate, and Greeting Cards Inside & Out Imagine Cartridge.
A friend at work is planning her daughter, Ryan's, first birthday.  She wanted an Owl theme so of course I automatically thought of the super cute owl on the Create A Critter Cartridge. 
I think I went a bit overboard, but I was so excited  to make all the following projects.
My first project are Cupcake Toppers...these may look familiar if you follow my blog as I posted these on Monday as a Sneak Peak of the coordinating Party Decor. For details on how these were created please go to my original post Here.
Here is a banner that I created for my second project. I used all of the cartridges listed above to create this project.  All of the paper on this banner was created using the Cricut Imagine and the Greetings Cards Inside and Out Cartridge. 
I love the colors and patterns on this cartridge!

 My third project are these fun goody bags for the kiddos that will be at the party. The goody bags include Stickers, a Glow Stick Bracelet, Play Dough, and a Squirt Gun since the party is going to be outside at a park. These are the first goody bags I have created and I had a fun with these.  The Thank you sentiment is from My Pink Stamper Fabulous Phrases stamp set.

My last project I am going to share with you will be the Centerpieces for the tables.  My friend has quite a big family and is expecting around 70 people at this party, so I will be working on creating 10 of these centerpieces this weekend. 

Fun Tip: Instead of buying filling for the bucket I am shredding paper myself so the colors will be a perfect match.

The Look Who's 1 sentiment is from Pink By Design Take the Cake stamp set.
I welded Look Whoos One to a Circle and this will be a frame for pictures of the Birtday Girl.

The Happy Birtday Sentiment is from My Creative Time Many Greetings Stamp Set.
Cricut Cuts:
  • The Base for the banner is from the Tag Shadow Feature <Shift>, Button 14 on the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge.  These were flood filled with patterns from the Imagine Greetings Inside and Out cartridge.
  • The Font is from the Font Feature and Font Shadow Fearture on Birthday Cakes. (this was used on the cupcake toppers, banner, and centerpieces.)
  • The Owls are from Create A Critter, Button 2 on the overlay using Layer 2, & 3...I skipped layer 1 since I used googly eyes. (this cut was used on all projects)
  • The Rossettes are from the Decor Feature, Button 35 on Something to Celebrate     (this cut was used on the banner and centerpieces)
Wow I've been busy and having so much fun creating these projects. :)
Thanks for sticking with me through this long post. 
I hope you have enjoyed my projects.
