365 Challenge Blog Card

Needed some thank you cards for gifts my son, Kase, has gotten recently. Day 243 on the 365 Challenge Blog was to make a thank you card. That was just the incentive I needed to make these.

365 Challenge Blog Card

This is for day 239, and the challenge is making a card with 4 folds in it. Here is a great little card for a great challenge! It's a pocket tag card with custom suitcase tags. A nice gift for a friend going on vacation...

365 Mosaic Challenge

Another challenge from 365 Cards. The challenge was to create a mosaic. I wasn't going for anything so literal, but when I saw this pic of the floor in the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, I had to try it.
The card was fun to make, but I think if I do this again, I will chop the paper finer and sprinkle it like glitter. It took about 6 hours to make.

365 Cards Design

I'm on vacation this week, so I wanted to do something fun i.e. a card I didn't have to make. I looked for a good card challenge, and I found the blog 365 Cards.

The challenge was to use a tag. I thought,"Perfect!" I have had these stickers that look like shirt tags FOREVER. So I whipped out a book, Kitschy Crafts, that I bought to cut up for cards. Lots of cool, retro pics. And the book was only $6.00.

My husband and I are going to a big flea market in Rogers, OH in the morning, so this is to say thank you to him for using a vacation day to go with me. Such a sweetie! So the people in this card are fleatiquing... Because that's what I want it to be, & it's my card! (Yes, I'm a bit grumpy at 1:30 in the morning).

Party Crown

Part crown for girl or boy. I did not add slits so that the crown could be fit to size.
The .SCUT is about 24" long.

Champagne Bottle

*Grin* Uh, I guess I should post more often. Rest assured, though, my Cricut has not been idle. I have also bought a Cuttle Bug in the last month and have been messing with that, too. Today I made a champagne bottle for a lady on the CricutCutter Yahoo! group. I used white shimmer paper for the champagne drops and tinfoil (dull side out) for the foil above the seal. I used brown paper similar to a paper bag for the cork. I decorated the label & seal with black, burgundy, silver and gold pens.

The SCUT file is 1" wide by 4" tall.
I have it set up so it will cut the individual pieces. The complete bottle is off the mat to show what it looks like. I cut the file with a scrap sheet, then press "Load Paper" Instead of "Unload" when it is finished. I lift the scrap paper, leaving only the edge under the roller stack down. Then I can slip small squares of the final paper under the template. Once I have each color where it should go, I pull off the scrap sheet and click "Cut" in SCAL.

Or, if you prefer, you can alter the SVG & save each piece as its own file.
