Over at Cookingwithcricut.com they are having Christmas in July challenges. So the idea this week is to make a project using scraps. Here's my card. I used the Plantin Schoolbook and the cuttlebug to make this fun, easy card for the holidays.

Okay, I swear (I hope) that this is my last post about the baby shower! And I've posted this favor before, but this is the final draft that I ended up using for the shower. I put little truffles in them! And they were a big hit.
I used the Bags, tags, boxes and more2 cart for the favor box and the bib and the Gypsy Wanderings for the birdy!
This is the gift bag I made for the presents! And man, oh man did I have fun buying girl clothes! My girls are 27, 13 and 10 and they won't let me dress them in tutu's anymore, so imagine the fun I had shopping for this baby! I used the Straight from the Nest cart of course.
We set up tables outside for our guests, and I made these little bird cages from a tutorial I found on line. The glassware, candles, table clothes and foliage I found at the dollar store (cha ching)! And it worked perfectly to fit the theme!
This is what the table looked like when they were all prettied up!
This is a little bit of a twist on the diaper cake. I wrapped diapers and tied them together to form a circle, then covered them in a circle with paper. I used the Straight from the Nest cart for the branch, the Plantin Schoolbook for the grass and the Gypsy Wanderings for the bird. The cellophane candies I used were diapers rolled up! How cute is that? I saw it on Etsy. I was pretty pleased with it!
This is a name card I placed on the cake plate, just to let people know the name of the new little one and to welcome them to the shower!
Well, folks it's been a while since I have posted. I thought June was bad, then came July! So between vacations, weekend boating and a surgery (all is well) I have not posted for quite some time. But that does not mean that I have not been busy on the cricut. Hardly a day goes by that I don't use it.
My girlfriend had a baby girl today and in preperation we had a baby shower last week. The theme was nestin, and the colors were pink, brown and green. Those of you who know me, know that I want a granddaughter to dress up, so when I heard my friend was having a girl I went a little crazy! So here is the first of several posts. First, actually this was the last project I did, it came to me when I was recooperating, is a wreath for the front door.
I made this wreath using diapers. I tied them around a wreath I picked up at an after holiday sale at Target. I used the Straight from the Nest cart for the welcome and branches, and the Gypsy Wanderings for the bird. The shoes I found a template for at Pink Fox website AND I just saw on the Holidaycricut website that CTMH has a new cart coming out tomorrow with this 3D shoe on it! CAN'T WAIT!
