Hope you are all ready for Thanksgiving.  I still have to go shopping for all the cooking I will be doing on Thursday.  I created a simple Thanksgiving banner that reads: Give Thanks.  Here is my entry to the Bitten by the bug 2 Give Thanks Thanksgiving Challenge

 I cut the letters using the Tie the Knot Cricut Cartridge monogram letters.

 The leaves where cut using Accent Essentials Cricut Cartridge
 The actual banner was cut using Accent Essentials Cricut Cartridge as well.
The papers I used are DCWV and Recollections.

Baby Shower Decorations

Hi there!  Just want to share the beautiful decorations I made for my brother & sisnter-in-law baby shower.  There baby shower was a while ago but I am just getting around to sharing the decorations.

For the centerpieces I bought plants and small pots from Ikea.

 I cut Lions, Zebras, Monkeys, Giraffes, and Elephants with my Cricut Create a Critter Cartridge and glued them on a skewer stick.

I also made some thank you round labels and cut round circles with the Cricut and attached them to outside of the pot. 

I also made a baby wishes tree and cut tags with the Cricut Celebrations Cartridge and attached them to the branches of the tree.

I also made a ribbon for the Mom-to-be and Dad-to be as well as ribbons for all of the guests to wear with animal print ribbon and small animals cut with my Cricut Create a Critter Cartridge.


 I also made some simple hanging decorations that I hung all around the tent as well as on the walls.  I cut large round circles in the coordinating colors and finished it off with a Cricut Create a Critter Cartridge animal.  I attached all off the circles and animal with a sewing machine.
I made a banner to go over the candy/cake table that reads It's a Boy I used the Cricut Birthday Bash Cartridge for the circles as well as the letters, the animals where cut again with the Create a Critter cartridge and the green vines where cut with a Martha Stewart Double Edger Punch Vine Trim.

Here's another view of the banner, the paper I used for the letters is DCWV Safari Kids stack.

Here is a close up of the cupcakes I made, again I used the Create a Critter cartridge to cut the animals then glued them onto a toothpick.  The monogram "I" circles I bought at a craft store, I can't remember where.

I made simple cake with fondant a whipped cream as the grass.  I also cut a small banner from the Birthday Bash cartridge and used it as the cake topper.  I bough the plastic animal cake toppers at a local cake decorating supply shop.

I also made chocolate covered marshmallows and rice krispies treats and placed them all in a basket.  I would have loved to display them but I ran out of time.

 I printed matching round labels for the candy dishes and added the animal print ribbon.

I also made a movie night gift basket as a raffle prize for anyone who would bring diapers or baby wipes, they would receive a raffle ticket.

I also had all of the games laid out on tables along with printed instructions. 

The most popular game was the guessing game.

Hope you enjoyed all my baby shower decorations.

Mickey & Pluto Scrapbook Layout

I saw a cute scrapbook layout on youtube from Faith Abigail Designs and had to re-create it.  Hope you like it.  I used the Cricut Cartridge: Mickey & Friends
All cuts are from the Mickey and friends cartridge.  All solid colored cuts are from Recollections cardstock.  The Blue Background paper is DCWV as well as the Green dots paper.  The red & white checkerd paper is very old and can't remember where I purchased but if you want to re-create this layout you can just use your own similar cardstock.
