National Scrapbooking Weekend

My friend over at and I went to a National Scrapbooking Day event Signed, Sealed and Delivered put on last weekend.  They had a "Survivor" theme.  Here are some pics from the event. 

We made these Cricut shirts and matching flip flops to wear to the crop.  The shirt is heat bond type vinyl from H&H sign supply. I used the Cricut Everyday cart for the circle head. The shoes are just flip flops tied with strips of bandannas cut with pinking shears so they don't fray.

This is a layout we got in a kit.  The first pic is the directions and I tweaked it a little and changed the sun, added the girl and the bucket.  I irocked the sun's eyes and the gems in the sand/bucket.  Bucket and girl were from H2O.  I think the sun and trees are from Life's a beach.  Don't you just LOVE the hammock?  Those ladies at SSD are awesome!

We won first place for the tribe sign!  Thanks to Missie K for the awesome name and Stella for a ton of hard work!

I think we got second place for our layout.  Each person got a bag of goodies and had to make a layout with it.

Here are some of the prizes/goodies we got there!

Here is my other layout I finished!  I was happy about the way this one turned out.  The sun, car, animals and clouds are from Create a critter.  I welded shapes together for the engine from George and basic shapes and then welded and thinned out the tracks from one of the paper doll carts.  I made everything in a chipboard base first, then covered it with my paper.  I used the peachy keen face stamps for the sun and the swirls cuttlebug fold for the clouds.  I also irocked it and used buttons.  I entered this in the cricut circle blog tic tac toe contest.  I used the top row: a sun, a welded image from my gypsy and buttons ( I also threw in a cuttlebug embossed item too!).

Teacher's Gift Card

Today you were supposed to give your teacher supplies.  We decided to give them money so they could purchase the things they need instead of bringing something they don't want.  I used the playtime cart on my imagine with the rgb codes to make the little girl look like she does on the cart.  I also used peachy keen PK-640 Princess face assortment for her face.  If you notice, I couldn't figure out how to hide the eyes so they wouldn't cut out.  I couldn't get my gypsy to work with my imagine either!  It kept asking me to plug in my gypsy and it was not reading it!  So I designed it on the gypsy and had to start all over and make it on the imagine screen.  I am gonna try to update the imagine again and see if that helps.  Every time I have updated it I've had problems with it saying I'm not plugged in to the computer.  So now I'm a little worried something may be wrong with it.  When I have time, I will have to dig around on the message boards and see if I can fix it.  I would be heartbroken if something is wrong.

Teacher's Gifts

This week is Teacher appreciation week at Kayla's school.  Each day this week you bring your Teachers a specific item.  Monday is flowers so we decided to be crafty and give them flowers that are functional!  The flowers are silk flowers with the stems wrapped to a pen with floral tape.  Cuttin' Up for the font and Cricut Sampler for the bee.
