The challenge this week on the cricut circle is to use a shape in place of a letter... here I used a flower from the Mother's Day Bouquet Cricut Cartridge to replace the Letter "O" in "MOM".  I also used the Storybook Cartridge for the font and welded the letters together in Cricut Craftroom

Cricut Circle March Monthly Challenge - Wall Art

The Challenge this month on the Cricut Circle is to create some Wall Art!  I decided create a little picture frame and used my Cricut Imagine and the Hey Diddle Diddle Cricut Imagine Cartridge!

Cricut Imagine, Hey Diddle Diddle Cricut Cartridge,Freshly Picked Cartridge (Bloom sentiment), I added some buttons that I made sparkly with some sprayglue and glitter and a little Stickles!

I added a little dimension with pop dots to the flowers and to the Sun as well.  The cuts were made at 5" and I printed the patterned paper with my cricut imagine as well.  I filled the word bloom from the Freshly Picked Cartridge with a solid fill pattern from the Hey Diddle Diddle Cartridge before printing and cutting it on the Cricut Imagine!

Fill A Shape and Print and Cut on Silhouette!

I was playing around with my Silhouette Cameo again tonight and have tried filling shapes with a patterned paper and then using the print and cut feature!

Here is my project!

Each of these are seperate cuts availalble in the Silhouette online shop and I purchased some patterned papers from the shop to to fill the shapes with!  I added a little glitter to the grass! And the sentiment stamp is from a Cornish Heritage Farms - Kim Hughes stamp set.

Here is a list of the supplies used from the Silhouette Online Store:

The Pink pattern I used on the Tulips is from the preloads that came with the Cameo

Cutting Digital Stamps with the Silhouette

Did you Know that you can cut out Digi Stamps on the Silhouette?  I found this cool tutorial online by Nasayi where she describes how you can easily cut any digi stamp on the Silhouette! The video is attached below:

Here is what the Digi Stamps look like cut out!  I filled an 8 1/2 x 11 Sheet of white cardstock before printing & cutting - it gave me 6 images.  This is a free Digi Stamp from Paper Smooches!

Paper Smooches has a Free Digit Stamp Each Month - this was the July 2011 Freebie

Here is a quick project I made with one of the cuts!

Cricut Circle Challenge #53 - Wearing O' the Green

The current weekly Cricut Circle Challenge is to create something that you can wear on St. Patty's Day and it has to be green!  So after much thought... I decided to make some Shamrock Sunglasses! 

So after I made them I thought... what fun is it if I dont actually wear them!  So here is a Pic of me Wearing them!

And in Keeping with the fun of the challenge!  Here is My Cat Miko Wearing them too!

Details:  Cricut Expression 2, Cricut EveryDay Circle Cartridge (Sunglasses), Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge (Shamrock).  Cosmo Cricket Patterned Paper, Bazzill Cardstock and some added Bling!

I cut both the  the Sunglasses pieces from Page 65 of the Cricut Everyday Circle Cartridge at 5.25" from Green Cardstock and trimmed off the Cricut Antenee.  I then cut 2 Shamrocks from Page 40 from the Paper Doll Dress Cartridge at 2.5" and then again another 2 after fliping the shamrock.  I trimed off the stem of one of each fliped Shamrock and scored the Shamrock down the centre and glued the scored marked area to the 2nd Shamrock.  I then Glued both Shamrocks to the sunglasses and added a little Bling!

I hope you all have a Happy St. Patty's Day
