Cricut Tool Caddy

I made this for the monthly contest for the Cricut Circle Blog.  You had to recycle something.  So here I used 2 plastic tubs and glued the bases together so the caddy would be tall but not too deep.  I used old paper out of my scraps bucket I keep around and I used a Girl Scout Cookie (Samoa) box as the chipboard on the back of the cricut head to make it a little more sturdy.  I also used my cuttlebug cricut circle folder to emboss the cricut heads.  I was planning on buying something to put my tools in but I think this worked out so much better and it was free :)

Birthday Banner

Here is part of the banner I made to match the invitations and favor boxes a few post below.  I used george and basic shapes and the cuttin' up font.

A new home for my Imagine!

Finally!  My Imagine has not had a home since I bought it back in October.  It has been moved from one place to another.  I finally after buying 2 other pieces of furniture that didn't work decided to go with this.  I also had my wonderful Husband put in copper cable to hang my carts on to save space.  I just used ziploc bags and clip it up clips.  I have some older posts with before pics of the room.  I plan to give the whole room an overhaul soon.  I just got some heat n bond vinyl and I'm gonna try to make cricut curtains.


Mrs. Jennings Bday Gift

I made this basket up for Kayla's Teacher.  Her Birthday is today and since it's close to Easter I thought this might be fun. After all, how often is it as adults, do we get to enjoy an Easter basket?  The carrots were welded from george and basic shapes and tags, bags, boxes and more, gypsy font, and cricut sampler for the apples.

Bugs me layout

So to enter the weekly contest you had to make a scrapbook page about something that bugs you.  So I made a layout with a pic of the advent calendar I just finished.  I can't tell you how many times I have cleaned this room and moved that thing from one place to another!  Back when I bought it I was going to replace my Christmas advent. I wanted to get a head start on Halloween decorations soon so I thought why not kill two projects with one Cricut?  Less clutter and one Halloween project down!  I used the cuttin up font and October 31st cart.

Monster Advent Calendar

I had this advent calendar hanging around in my way for a year!  It was driving me crazy so I made a countdown to Halloween today!  I used mini monsters and cuttin up for the numbers.

It's a Cupcake Party!

I made these party favor boxes and invitations for Kayla's teacher.  Her sweet little girl is turning one soon!  I am also going to post the banner soon.  I used the sweet treats cart.

Picnic Basket

I made this for the game plan challenge for the cricut blog.  You had to draw a sketch then make the project.  I made the basket from welding different shapes together on my gypsy.  I used the George and basic shapes cart and the font is cuttin up. The paper is My Minds Eye, Summer Song.
