Good Morning Everyone!

This morning I bring to you some baby shower party favors that I made for a friend.  Here’s some pictures:

Baby Shower Party Favors - 1




Baby Shower Party Favors - 2


I wish I had more pictures to show you but I already gave them to my friend.  To make these cute little party favors, I used a paper pack from Close to My Heart called Babycakes.

I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut out the little take out boxes as well as the circles behind the animals.   The takeout boxes were cut at 7″.  You can find the image on page 24, A4, Shift, Font Layer, < Dragnfly >.  The circles can be found on page 21, A1, < Circle1 > and were cut at 2″.

The cute little animals came from the Artbooking Cricut cartridge.  The stamp set Wild Wonders coordinates with this cartridge and so I was able to cut out the rhinocerous and the lion using the cartridge.

I edged each circle w2ith Chocolate ink to help give them a bit of dimension.

Our Love Story

Our Love Story

Hello Everyone, I can’t believe that it’s the end of July. My Daughter starts her senior year in just a few weeks…Yikes! I made this wall art for my Godson’s bride to be shower gifts. I got the Idea from one of my pins from Pinterest.  I’m loving the vinyl! Here I used white vinyl on a 12″x14″ canvas. I painted it with Martha Stewart’s Lake fog acrylic paint. I inked the edges with Tim Holtz,  vintage photo distress ink.  Below is the screen shot of the set up in the craft room. Originally I thought of cutting it out in two colors, hence the two colors and two mats. I used the gypsy font and art philosophy font. I also used the 12×24 mat.

I cut it out, weeded out all the little bits. It takes a bit of time and then added it to the canvas.


I made another one for my niece and she loved it.


I hope you are enjoying the end of your summer (really the middle but it fills the the end with school being only a few weeks away). I invite you to visit my blog over at ScrapiliciousLife

Sentimental Saturday~ Hello

Hello, it’s Liz here on this Sentimental Saturday. Today I have a simple Hello card made from the Art Philosophy cartridge.

The base is 6″x12″ Bazzill card stock folded in half . The card image is on page 43. I cut the <square3> at 5.5″ out of kraft cardstock and the decorative layer (shift) I cut out of this pretty paper from the Simple Stories 6×6 pad called Vintage Bliss. The sheet I used is called Smile Big. I used the corner chomper to round the corners.

I wrapped some seam binding around the whole piece and I stamped the Hello and cut it out by hand and I used a glitter pen to color in the hello and I used foam dots to give it a pop. I stitched around with my favorite white pen, the Uni-Ball Signo white pen.

Miss You

Good Morning Everyone!

This is my first post as a DT member for CricutDIVA and I’m very excited to be a part of the team!

My project for you today is actually an over-sized card that I created for one of my Aikido students. She broke her leg while riding her scooter and will not be able to train for at least 6 weeks. She comes every week to watch while her sister trains with the rest of the class. We are definitely missing her on the mat and so I created this card for her that all of the students will sign to let her know.

Let me show you a couple of pictures:



This card measures 9 1/2″ x 12″. I wanted to make it big enough so that the other students had room to write in it for her. I used two Cricut cartridges to make this card: Everyday Paper Dolls and Art Philosophy. To make a card this large, I cut 2 pieces of 12 x 12 White Daisy cardstock:  one at 9 1/2 x 12 and the second one at 10 x 12. I then scored the larger piece at 1/2″ and folded it over and adhered it to the first piece on the inside of the card using Scor-Pal double-sided tape. That adhesive really sticks well so I know the card will definitely hold up to 20 children signing it!

The first layer of the card is Lagoon cardstock cut at 9 1/4 x 11 3/4. The second layer came from a paper pack called Claire from Close to My Heart and was cut at 7 x 11 1/2 using the Fit to Length key on the Cricut Expression. The image was on the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  It can be found on page 54, D4, < Rctngle2 >.

The girl figure and the martial arts uniform were cut using the Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge. The “gi” or uniform is actually the bathrobe and belt on page 39 and the pants on page 40. The girl’s hair was on page 35. All were cut at 10 1/2″.

For the letters on the side of the card I used Irresistibles Houndstooth Alphabet. This is a chipboard alphabet set that has a houndstooth resist pattern that shows through when you ink it. The letters were inked using Lagoon and Sunset ink.

On the inside of the card, I used lettering from the Keyboard Kraft Alphabet which are adhesive-backed letters. The sentiment reads “WE MISS YOU ON THE MAT”.

I had a lot of fun making this card and hope that it cheers Tate up!!  Please stop by my blog at Love 2 Create to see this and other projects I have made, just click here.
