Hello everyone, I am sad to announce that this will be my last post with Cricut DIVA. I have had some exciting changes in my life that will result in the loss of my craftroom, my husband and I are expecting our second child in February. I hope you have enjoyed my posts and I have inspired you to be creative.
Now that we have our second child on the way I have been trying to work on my daughters first year before our second one arrives. Here I have focused on the first bath.

Bath Time Page 2
I used Recollections solids and the pattern paper is from my older papers, so I am not sure who they are by.
Title Close up
Here a close up of the title, I took I white gel pen to make the bubbles white on the writing as well as add Stickles for a little glimmer.
I cut out a cute baby girl in a bath tub and I used Peachy Keen Stamps for the face. I love these stamps it really helps to put personality into our creations. The rubber ducky is from a set of leftover stickers.

On page two I wanted to detail so I put bubbles coming out of the picture with some added Stickles and a rubber duck sticker.
I added larger bubbles to the bottom of that page for my journaling, so it went with my theme.
Thank you for checking out my post and I hope I have inspired you.

Hi Brenda from http://happyscrapper64.blogspot.com/ here. It’s been a busy weekend, so I’m posting an older project I completed. My daughter is going to a baby shower this month and asked me to make a card. This is what I came up with.
This is a 7″ x 5″ card. The striped cardstock mat on the front and inside is 6 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ and the white mat on the inside is 6 1/4″ x 4 1/4″. The striped cardstock is from the My Mind’s Eye Party Time stack and all solid cardstock is Recollections.
The cut on the front is from the Baby Steps Cricut cartridge (page 63) cut at 3 1/2″. The blocks on the inside are from the New Arrival Cricut cartridge (page 124) cut at 1 1/2″. The sentiment is from the Close To My Heart New Arrival stamp set, and is stamped with Close To My Heart’s Archival Blank ink pad.
Here are pictures of my Gypsy screens I used to make the cuts.
I used the hide and contour feature on my Gypsy for the Layer 2 cut because there were three colors needed for the different items on that layer. I forgot to take a picture of all my papers on my mat.
I hope my daughter’s friend likes the card.
Thanks for stopping by!

I braved 3D Castles for my daughter 1st Birthday. This is my very first 3D object made using my Cricut. The 3D castles turned out awesome, but very time consuming. I will say it was worth it all when I saw them on all the tables at my daughters first Birthday.
As you can see I made 7 of these 3D Castles. The one I will be using for the details is Lily’s personal castle. This one I added embellishments and made it out of glitter and shimmer paper with a princess.
- Close Up On Castle
I wanted these castles to be as big as I could get them on a 12×12 mat. The largest I could go was 10.75 in. I had to use Design Studio so I could hang off the pieces I could not get on the mat at that time. This lady’s blog post was super helpful in figuring out what each piece was for, http://craftygator.blogspot.com/2012/02/once-upon-princess-3d-castle-tutorial.html.I labeled my booklet just like she did and it was so helpful.
Here is close up of the Princess was made from Once Upon A Princess and the hair is from the Baby Steps. I used glitter paper from Target and the shimmer paper were from Bazzill. Give yourself plenty of time and some patience when assembling these castles. Instead of gluing the edges I used double sided tape on the inside edge of each cut, to cut down on dry time. Take a bone folder or butter knife and put it inside the tower to apply pressure to the seems, this helps the tapes stick better.When creating the towers score the seems. If you don’t have a scoring board, just use a sturdy ruler and bone folder. There is one in the Cricut tool kit. I also used Peachy Keen stamps for the Princesses face.
- Detail 2
This is a butterfly from my sticker collection to add a little bit of embellishing.
- Extra Piece
Tip: This is very important in my opinion to add sturdiness to the center towers, otherwise they wobble a lot when you move them. I recut the image in light pink labeled inner tower. Take the tabs and tape them to the inside. This will help stabilize these towers otherwise you will be fixing them all the time.
