For my projects today, I have used the cartridges Christmas Cards, Cheerful Seasons, and Celebrate with Flourish! 

My first project is a very cute custom baby shower invitation that I made for a customer. I used Celebrate with Flourish and an the Imagine cartridge Hopscotch to print the cloud paper. 

  • I printed out the cloud paper on a 12 x 12 piece of white card stock. I then cut that down into 4 x 5 invitations. 
  • The umbrella us cut from Celebrate with Flourish at 2 inches and attached to the invite using pop-dots
  • The invite is stamped with some sentiments from Pink by Design 
  • Before attaching the umbrella, I ran the invites through my printer to print the invitation information on the back side (not show due to personal information printed)
My second project is a Christmas card from Christmas Cards. 

  • I cut everything for this card (including the base) at 4 inches. 
  • I added the crystals from my stash to help add some bling
  • The sentiment on the inside is from Pink By Design's Christmas Wishes stamp set
My third project is from Cheerful Seasons. 

  • A2 card base 
  • I cut the pumpkin out from Cheerful seasons at 4 inches 
  • I cut the patterned paper for the front of the card base to 5 3/8 x 3 7/8 and wrapped the ribbon around it before securing it to the card base. The paper is from The Paper Studio's All Seasons II stack.
  • The pumpkin is attached to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • The sentiment stamp is from a Fall themed stamp set from Pink by Design, as is the inside sentiment. 
  • The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby's Harvest crafts ribbon line.

Scrapbook Friday!

Today's layout challenge was to use a Cricut Lite Cartridge. I love so many of my lite cartridges and knew just the right one to get this layout done! 

I used B is for Boy to make this really cute 2 page layout of some of my ultrasound pictures. 

I cut out the "Love" die cut and the "Baby Boy" due cut at 4 inches. I then cut out 4 of the postage stamp layer from the LOVE die cut to use as my photo mats. They are also cut at 4 inches. I cut down my ultrasound pictures to fit onto them. 
I had accidentally changed my size dial when I went to cut the postage stamps out down to 2 inches. At first I was going to toss the cut, but then realized it made an awesome size to write the info from the ultrasound on! 
The paint stick and rectangle embellishments are from a kit by bo-bunny from my stash. 
My last addition was the feet ribbon at the bottom of the page.

Card Creating Tuesday

Today's theme for cards is "Thinking of you" I have chosen to make a fun summer related card for this theme! 

  • I started by cutting out my Popsicle from the Imagine yummy cartridge at 4 inches. I cut this 2 times. 
  • I used patterned paper from the Doodlecharms paper by Provo Craft, and cut it down to 5 3/8 x 3 7/8.
  • Before attaching my patterned paper to my A2 card base, I wrapped some orange twine around it. 
  • I put ATG adhesive on the back of one of my Popsicle cuts and attached it directly to the patterned paper. For the second one, I put pop-dots on the back of it to pop it up! 
  • For the inside, I stamped it with a perfect sentiment from Pink by Design's Say it Sweet stamp set that says "I'm missing you like candy" 
To see more "thinking of you" cards, make sure to head on over to My Cricut Craft Room to check out what the other design team members have created today!
