Casing the Catty #23

12:00 AM 5 Comments
SAB and Occasions Inspiration

So this week is all about using elements from both the SAB catalog and the Occasions for Casing the Catty

I really loved page 5 in the SAB which had a pretty card using the Best Year Ever DSP. I trimmed five pieces down and attached them using dimensionals. I than used my new favorite stamp set  So You and added some fun punched stars for some accent.

you could use about any of the sayings for this card but how fun to remember the good times!

So I was able to do all of this by myself this time because I have more movement in my left hand. Only like 5 weeks more  (I hope) in the dynamic splint. Though it doesn't stop me from creating!

Thanks for stopping by!

Casing the Catty #21

12:00 AM 4 Comments

 This week is about casing from the Everyday section in the Occasions catalog for Casing the Catty. I still am only one handed and am now in a dynamic splint to get my cut tendons moving. I have been doing simple crafting  (okay not as complex as I normally do).  I really liked the Crazy about You stamp set when I first saw it. I liked that I could build sayings and not just use it for cards. 

When I was going through the catalog, I was looking for simple to CASE and the little gift bag on page 30 (US) really struck me as one I could do. I do think I need the Bouquet die so once my hand is better, I will be getting that because I would love to make all sorts of flowers.

I used my all time favorite framelit- the banner one to cut out from the Adventure Bound dsp- this pack is awesome. I than cut out one from Whisper white and stamped the Happy Birthday- I was thinking more masculine. I stuck it all on by stapling it (just used my regular old one) and using the string from the Hello Life kit, had my daughter tie a bow. 

Who won't love getting a gift in this super simple gift bag. This set seems like I could use it for so much. I would have liked to layered the flowers and leaves on there as well but I can't cut that easy right now. 

Thanks for stopping by!

T-shirt problem?

12:00 AM 0 Comments
So I have had my Cricut Explore about 10 months and I use it all the time. For the first month, I used it every day but now I use it a few times a week.  The big thing my family loves is t-shirts because we can make custom ones all the time. I did cute ones for the rodeo for the girl and I but the boy I though could use the one I made last year but he asked so of course for Go Texan day, I created this.

He loves it and specifically asked for it to have a cow print on it. My little cowboy is going to look so cute.

So I have been wanting a few Softball shirts for games to rotate out and this one has been floating in my head for a while - love how it turned out. 

Finally, the hubby asked for  Save Ferris shirt- between the Goldbergs and watching the movie again with the kids, I created this. Love how it turned out too.

Thanks for stopping by!

My Cricut Craft Room Spring/Girly

12:00 AM 0 Comments

It has been awhile since I posted on My Cricut Craft Room which was because we all took a break for the holidays and lasted slightly longer. Now that we are back I have the perfect Spring project to kick us off because spring here in Texas means the start of softball season. We are two weeks in already with ten weeks to go or more. 

I decided to jazz up my door with a monogram B decorated like a softball and flowers. I love how it turned out!

I got a large letter at the craft store and painted it neon yellow. Once it dried, I cut out using red vinyl the baseballs from the Team Spirt cart. 

I than cut out the flowers from the Mother's Day out cart and hot glued them onto the front for a pop of color. These are Miss O's team colors so when they change, I can pop it off to change out!

Thanks for stoking by!
