Hockey Tournament Treats

We are in a hockey tournament this weekend!!!  I am rather excited as it gets me away for a couple of days!  I was trying to think of a quick and simple “something” I could make for the tournament.  I saw Pink by Design’s Canada stamp set and My Creative Time’s 3×3 Fancy Tri-Fold Card Die and along came the idea.  How perfect is this!!!

Inside I put some gum that is in a roll.


Until next time…have fun creating!!


Gift Card Holder

Just a quick post today.  I have been so caught up in watching the Olympics that I haven't made time to get in my craft area.  This is a super simple gift card holder using My Creative Time's Embossed Gift Card Holder Die, Anyday Bingo & Crossword, and Build a Banner kit.


Until next time…have fun creating!!

Welcome to the Mr. Cricut Crazy – Anything Goes Blog Hop

What a great theme!!!  ANYTHING GOES!  Life has gotten in the way of my creating and blogging lately.  I am slowly getting back on track so you will see more.

You should have arrived from the super talented Carolanne.  If you are new to my blog or happen to stumble across my blog you will want to start at the beginning with Tanner.

For my project I wanted a little note book that I can throw in my purse because lately I have needed to write things down quickly and I haven't had anything to write on.  I used Mr. Cricut Crazy's Simply Everything Vol. 2 and Office Office stamp sets for the sentiments.  You can find those stamp sets here.

So this is what my project started out as…


And now looks like this…


It's the perfect size for my purse.  

Next on the hop is the oh so talented Jamie.


Here's the line up in case you get lost.

SURPRISE Baby Blog Hop!!


It's a surprise baby shower for my Mr. Cricut Crazy design team sister, Carolanne!!!  Carolanne is having a baby girl who will be named Leah.  We wanted to surprise her with a little baby shower and since we couldn't all be there in person we decided to take the party to her through this blog hop.

You should have arrived from the oh so talented Vicky.  

If you haven't already make sure you start at the beginning of this great blog hop with Tanner aka Mr. Cricut Crazy.  

For my project I decided to use the Sugar & Spice Cricut Lite Cartridge for the cute little lamb.  The sentiment comes from Mr. Cricut Crazy's Simply Everything Vol. 1.



Your next stop is Jamie.

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.


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″.


 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.


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″.
