Cricut Retirement Card

I made this card for a team member that is retiring soon. I used the Simply Charmed cartridge for the leprechaun and pot of gold/rainbow cuts. The clouds were done with punches because I use SO many clouds I get tired of cutting them with my Cricut. I have an easier time using paper scraps with my punches too. I punched out the circle for the sunshine and added accents with white gel pen and Studio G glitter glue. The sentiment is from a Cardz TV set. I think it's the Simply Said one.

I'm excited to finally share this project with you that I made for my mom's birthday. 

I love to make shadow boxed using Cricut cuts. I used the Wall Decor and More cartridge for the sewing themed cuts. The tomato pin cushion is actually the pumpkin from Disney Cricut Happily Ever After. The last cut is from Nifty Fifties.

Today's My Cricut Craft Room design team project was to create a paper craft with either a festive BBQ or block party theme. I used one of my favorite Cricut cartridge, Simply Charmed, to make this picnic themed card.  I used some paper I've been hoarding from the DCWV Sweet Stack on the watermelon.  The checked paper is from DCWV Grandma's Kitchen.  The stamps that I used are from K Andrew Designs, who is unfortunately closing up shop.

My Cricut Craft Room Design Team Project - Anything Purple

Todays My Cricut Craft Room design team project was to create a paper craft using the color purple and whatever Cricut cartridge I wanted.  I used the Preserves cartridge to make this sweet bunch of grapes for my card (cut at 4" on my Gypsy).  The sentiment comes from K Andrew Designs "More Food For Thought" stamp set.  I emobossed the white center panel of my card using my Cuttlebug and a new chicken wire folder that I picked up from Joanns.  I used some mulberry paper flowers from my stash and a couple of my home made stick pins.  I highlighted the green leaf with a Bic marker and put some Studio G clear glitter on the grapes along with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink (I think it was Concord).

It was kind of hard to pick out a list of favorite projects as I've made SO MANY that are my favorites.  I'm pretty addicted to my Cricut and have been for a couple of years now.  I went through my Pinterest board and picked out some of my recent faves though.  Let me know what you think below for a chance to win a set of my home made stick pins (USA residents only).  If you are from outside the USA you havea  chance to win a personalized digi from

I used the Mustaches and Glasses Cricut Craft Room set to put this vinyl mustache on the front of my car.  I've had a LOT of compliments on it.

This cute vinyl family is from the Car Decals cartridge.

I put this wreath up in January for Valentines Day and left it up awhile in preperation for Spring.  I love to make new wreaths for the front door!  I used the Flower Shoppe and Birthday Bash cartridges on this wreath.

I used Flower Shoppe to make this sweet bouquet.  I've given most of these pretty flowers away now.

I used the Create a Critter Cartridge to make this faux Hello Kitty bow holder for my daughter's bathroom.  I also used Teddy Bear Parade for the dress.

This was my nieces birthday card.  I made it using the Best of Pixar cartridge.

We had a fun sleepover at my nieces house.  I used the Best of Pixar cartridge to make these awesome "puppets" for us to play with.  I laminated them with my YourStory and hot glued them to tongue depressers.  We had SO much fun playing with the big door that I made out of foam board and the "puppets."

I made the below glasses and mustache to go inside this card for a friend's daughter's birthday.  The mustache on the card is attached with velcro so it comes off to be "worn."  I made these using the Mustaches and Glasses Cricut Craft Room set.

My daughter Meghan modeling for us.
