For my projects I decided to use Go Canada!, Birthday Bash, Lacy Labels, and Love You A Latte Cricut Cartridges.

I decided to keep things simple this month as I have had a lot going on.  I made two projects and both are cards.  I used my gypsy to create both projects.

For my first card I used Go Canada! and Birthday Bash.

P1010873

I cut the leaft from the Go Canada! Cartridge at 6.88″.  This image also includes the wording which you see on my card.  To make it easier for me I cut the leaf only and used the hide feature to hide the remainder.  Then I created the same image and hid the leaf.  That way it was easier for me to cut them out of two different colours.  The words “Canada Eh!?” are cut at 5.35″.  The base of the card comes from Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge and is cut at 3.94″.

P1010875

 As you can see above I put the leaf and the words on dimensionals!

 

For my next card I used Lacy Labels and Love You a Latte cartridges.

P1010855

The tea cup and layers are from Love You A Latte and are cut at 2.06″.  The base of the card is from Lacy Labels and were sized at 4.29″ and the welded together to make a card base.  The next layer is the same shape but cut at 3.82″.

Today I decided to use Nifty Fifties, Go Canada and Life's a Party Cricut Cartridges.

For my first projects I decided to make two different shape cards.  

The first one is made using Life's a Party for the base.  This can be found on page 27 and is cut out with my gypsy at 4.65".  The layers are also cut out at 4.65".  

P1010804

The "Go Team" comes from the Go Canada Cricut Cartridge and is on page 23.  I cut this out at 2.06" and also used the shadow layer to make it pop.

P1010805

 Here's my card….

P1010803

 

For my second project I used the Life's a Party and Nifty Fifties Cricut Cartridges.  The base of my card come from Life's a Party on page 23 and is cut at 4.18".  I used the coordinating layer but hid the image on the layer.  I actually cut two of the layers out.  The first layer is cut at 4.18" and the second layer is cut at 3.94".  The image comes from Nifty Fifties and is cut at 3.94" along with all of the layers.  Here's my card…

For my project I used the Sports Mania Cricut Cartridge to create my first vinyl project…

P1010782

This project is now on the back of my husband's truck!  The hockey player is cut from the Sports Mania cartridge at 7" on my gypsy.  The lettering and number is from Birthday Bash and is cut at 1.59".  I am loving the way this turned out.  Especially for my first time using vinyl.  

My second project uses the Go Canada Cricut Cartridge and Elegant Edges Cartridge.  I made a card that is 5" x 5".

P1010787

The skate is from Go Canada! and all the layers are cut out at 3.12" on my gypsy.

The circle layer is from Elegant Edges and is cut out at 4.18" on my gypsy.  The sentiment comes from My Creative Time's Sports Sentiments stamp set.

My Cricut Craft Room – The Letter E

The letter of the day is E

 

As soon as I saw the theme I knew I had to participate!  For those of you that know me or follow my blog you know I love elephants.  Lucky for me, my adorable neice loves elephants too.  She just had her 4th birthday on the weekend so I just had to make her an elephant card.

P1010779

And here's the inside….

P1010780

The elephant is from the Sugar and Spice Cricut Lite Cartridge and is cut out at 2.53" on my gypsy.

My daughter was looking at the layout and thought I should try something different.  She came up with the idea to punch a circle out of the layer piece so that the sentiment would show through.  The sentiment on the front of the card and the inside are from My Creative Time's Wow, So Many Candles stamp set.

Make sure to stop by My Cricut Craft Room to see what the other Design Team Members have created today!!

Until next next time…have fun creating!!

My Cricut Craft Room – Get Well Card

Today over at My Cricut Craft Room we could make a get well card or use embossing powders on our card.  I chose to make a Get Well Card.

I decided to make an A2 size card portrait style.  I used the Indie Art cartridge and cut the bandaid at 2.76" on my gypsy.  The center I put on a dimensional.  The little heart is also on a dimensional.  I used a small heart punch but you could easily find a heart on a cricut cartridge and cut it out.  The sentiment comes from My Creative Time's Pain Pain Go Away stamp set.  The clear buttons and punches to match are from Stampin' Up.  I was asking my daughter about the buttons and different choices when I came across my stash of the clear button from Stampin' Up.  I punched out the three shapes and laid the buttons over the shapes and asked my daughter her opinion.  Without a blink of an eye she said…."why don't you use the "x's" but take the one out of the middle and make it an "o" for hugs and kisses since you have a bandaid".  How cute was that!!!!  So….onto the project…..

P1010772

P1010773

So what do you think???  Cute idea eh?

My Cricut Craft Room – Art Philosophy

Today on My Cricut Craft Room the Design Team had a choice between creating a project with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and creating a project with a Theme- Valentines Die cuts.  I decided to try my hand at the Art Philosophy Cartridge since I got it for Christmas and have not had a chance to play with it yet.

For my project I decided to make door hangers.  The cut is on page 25 under the Font Layer.  I used a 12 x 12 piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock and used the fit to page feature on my Cricut Expression.

P1010763

P1010764

Here are some close ups….
