Just a few of the precious things I've made so far from my Hello Kitty cartridge. I love it!!

Well, I am soooo excited! I finally broke down and got a Cuddlebug. I ordered the hot pink one on HSN.com. I got a great deal, too: the Cuddlebug plus 12 folders for $100. Just got it today and can't wait to start playing with it. I'm a little overwhelmed at the moment. :)

This week's CreativeTime Throwback Thursday Challenge was to make a holiday card from the WildCard cartridge. Fortunately, I did have this cartridge! I've decided that I don't use it near as often as I should. My favorite holiday is Halloween, but since my project from last week's challenge was Halloween themed, I decided to go with Christmas. It's a close second. The pics made the colors look muted, but actually, the colors are not bright red and green. I was going for a less commercial look. I think it turned out cute. :)

This week's Throwback Thursday Challenge on Emma's CreativeTime was to come up with a project that included something from the Zooballoo cartridge. Since I don't own that cart, I used the cute little spider from one of my "old reliables", Doodlecharms. The tag itself was cut from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I know, I know, Halloween is months away, but since it IS my favorite holiday, I wanted to make something different. A spider with huge rhinestone eyes is definitely different. :)

This week, Emma @ My Creative Time came up with the challenge of using the New Arrival cart. Since I don't own this cart, I had to search through my others to find something pertaining to babies. I found this adorable carriage in the Everyday Paper Dolls cart. Yea! Since most people go with the traditional pink for a baby girl, I decided to change it up a bit and go with lavendar. Added a few sparkles here and there, and voila!

The Pink Stamper color challenge this week was to create a project using the colors brown, orange, pink and green. When I made this little deer, I thought of Rudolph, who as you know was a red-nosed reindeer. He was "one of a kind". So......I gave my little deer a sparkly pink nose to make her unique and added the sentiment "One of A Kind". I made the deer from the adorable Create A Critter cart and the wording came from Wild Card.

My school recently hired a new principal (who also happens to be a former teacher on our campus). She had commented on several other signs I had made for other teachers, so as a welcome gift, I made this framed name sign for her to hang in her office. I hope she likes it! :) Cuttin Up cart was used for letters and flower.

Happy Father's Day! I created this framed project for a very special dad. The browns and golds make it masculine. The coloring on the pic doesn't do it justice. :( I love the background paper! The Wild Card and Cuttin Up carts were used.

This is my very first challenge entry. I love the PDD and EPD carts from Cricut. So many possibilities! I made this card using the "Rock Star" paper stack and included purple because it's the color of rock royalty. :) This card is going to be given to my good friend who loves to play RockBand in her spare time. Fun to make.

Just created this Luau card from the Life's A Beach Cricut cart. As cute as this card is, there is a downside. All of the pieces in the drink are included under one layer on the cart. Therefore, you have to make ALL of the pieces in each individual color in order to make the card as shown. The alternative is stopping the machine after it's made the one single piece you need of that color and before it moves on to cutting the next. Love the cartridge. Lots of cute images and cards galore.
This is a cute Mickey Mouse banner that I had waiting on a good friend when he returned from his trip to DisneyWorld. It was a lot of fun to make and I like the bright colors. Each pennant was created with the EPD Cricut cart under the cheerleader section. The font used was Mickey Font Cricut cart. I fastened it to a classic red/white grossgrain ribbon.
