Cats Wordbook

This is my first word book and I am very pleased with it. I made this as a gift for one of ladies in my b-day swap group on the Cricut Board. I cut the letters out of chipboard and then cut the paper to cover it from the same file. I can see what these are so popular!

Well this was a totally out of the blue project. I am happy with the way it came out but I would change a few things for next time. First of all I cut the letters a little bigger than I should have. I just learned how to shadow so I thought it was cool to use that on here.

I painted this with green paint, glued the letters and flowers on and then sprayed the whole thing with a clear sealer. I am going wait a while and see how it hold up before making anymore.

Wall Hang

A couple of days I was wondering around the LSS and a saw a really cute wall hang. I thought it looked like something that would be fun to make. So...I did but with my own theme. I can't remember the exact theme of the one in the store. However, the idea is that you could really use this project for anything and anyone. I just looked around for a cute quote to put on it and found this one. I think these would make cute gifts for a babies room too. Of course I would use the dog quote but the general idea is good.
I cut the squares with chipboard and then covered them with paper. I used a couple different fonts for the words and the milbones came from Mickey and Friends.
Punched wholes and added eyelets and then just threaded the ribbon through.

Wall Art

So I have seen a lot of talk about Wall Pops and the Cricut. So I took a look around at Lowe's and found a few colors on clearance. Black was one of them so I thought I would give it a shot. I cut this out using the Jasmine cart and with the help of my DH had it on the wall in less than 30 mintues. I am happy with the way it came out but we did have a hard time getting it straight. I have since read that using some sort of tape to line it up and good idea.

Ladybug Birthday Card

I found this project here. Thank you Susan. I just love this card. Everyone I know is going to get the ladybug birthday card this year!

I just started using the Cricut Expressions and I have to say I am so in love with it! I'll be posting more soon!
