Come check out my YouTube and Facebook!

Hello!

I know my blog has been severely ignored in the last year or so. Why is that? Most of my projects are now posted on my Facebook Page or YouTube channel. I may check in here occasionally but if you want to see what is new please find me there!

Thanks!

Lego Ninjago Inspired Kid's Shirt

Hi there!

I have a very simple project for you today! I made a trio of shirts for son and his cousins inspired by Lego Ninjago. I created the Ninjago "eyes" using Cricut Design Space and a WHOLE bunch of slicing and welding of basic shapes. I'll share the file after the video if you want to make it using your Cricut.

This was a very simple project. Had I been cutting just one instead of three the whole project would have taken maybe 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!

Welcome Baby Leo!

Hi there!

I have a new project for you today! I have a brand new nephew so I had to make him his own special welcome card.

How cute did this turn out? For most of the elements on this I used Doodlebug Design's Petite Prints. They are so fun and add a great design element to your projects!



I used the weld and slice functions in Design Space to create my card. I took the shadow layer from the lion and with a lot of flipping and welding got everything lined up perfectly.





Supplies:

Doodlebug Design Petite Prints:
   Mandarin Swiss Dots
   Bumblebee Swiss Dots
   Lily White Gingham
   Grasshopper Gingham
   Bubble Blue Swiss Dots

An EXPLOSION of Christmas Fun

Hello there!

One last project using Doodlebug Design's Here Comes Santa Claus paper and Petite Prints, and Dreaming Tree's Explosion Box. I had this idea in the back of my head since I first saw the Explosion Box over the summer. At that point I hadn't yet unpacked my craft room from our move back to Utah. As soon as I saw the Doodlebug paper, it hit me - I NEEDED to make that party hat into a Santa hat!


Boom!


Seriously, how stinkin' cute did this come out?!? I did a fair amount of editing and hiding cut lines to make it less birthday-y and more Christmas-y. Honestly, it was a really easy project to cut and assemble.


I used the insanely cute Odds and Ends from the Here Comes Santa Claus line on the flaps of the box.





I trimmed the hat in the center with some faux fur I found at Hobby Lobby.


It's perfect for some candy and maybe hide a gift card in there somewhere!

Happy Christmas Mail

Hello!

Today I have another project using Doodlebug papers. Today I'm using the Here Comes Santa Claus paper line and the Here Comes Santa Claus SVG cut files available on Lori Whitlock's website (or through the Silhouette store if you have that machine).

When I saw the little Santa in the mail truck in the Odds and Ends set, and all the little letters and stamps, I KNEW what I wanted to do with it all.

For my card I took the cute mailbox SVG file and sized it up to approximately and A7 sized card base. I duplicated the base layer, flipped it, added a small rectangle, and welded it all together to create the base.


With the little mail truck I mounted it on a spring to make it pop up and wiggle when the card is opened.





The letters are all "flying" out of the back of the mail truck.


And I used this cute notebook page from the Odds and Ends for my message.
