My hubby scrapbooked for me!!!!

For our three year anniversary my hubby surprised me and made me a scrapbook page! The picture he used to scrapbook is the first picture we ever took together nearly 8 years ago. It meant so much to me that he did this! I laughed when he told me that I have too many tools that he "couldnt figure out" because he had to cut the paper with just scissors. He was very proud of himself because he chose patterned paper that matched my shirt. Haha! I love this page and will cherish it always! (Oh! And I have to mention that he gave me the Create-a-Critter cartridge for my gift) Yay!!!

3D Robotz Cuts

Hey everyone! I thought I would share with you the cuts I played with today. My DH got me Robotz the other day and I was too excited to play with it!
I work at a child care facility and I always get to share my excitement of new cartridges with the kiddos, and today was no exception! As soon as they saw the Robotz cart they all wanted to cut some 3D robots. I only have my baby bug at work with me so I was hesitant to cut them out, but the size was actually better than I thought.
I was definitely unprepared and didn't have a scoring tool or the right adhesive to do good 3D images, but we made do. OH, and I should mention that I do let the kiddos help me cut and assemble these guys so they arent the best cuts and adhering jobs in the world. But its all about learning processes for the kiddos so I am super proud of them!

All the images were cut at 5 1/2 inches. Enjoy!

Holiday Mini Book

Hey everyone! Just wanted to share with you a mini-book I made for my friends baby girl who was having her first birthday party! My inspiration came from Cynthia at the Cricut MB. She has a YouTube video she has made for the mini-book she made. I want to make sure and give Cynthia all the credit on the idea for this project! She did an awesome job on hers, go check it out!

This is my take on the holiday book and I hope my friend likes it. Babies just grow so much in their first year and I wanted her to have a scrapbook show casing her little one! The recipe (as best as I can remember) is below each picture.

The front and back cover pages are 7x8.
The inside pages are 6x8. Each page is rounded with a corner chomper at the 1/2 inch side.

For any pages that use cuts from Design Studio, you can find the .cut files here.

The font on this page is cute with Simply Sweet
"my ST year" @ 1 1/2 inches
"1" @ 5 inches

"Tag" is Don Juan @ 2 3/4 using the "Under Pressure" & "Under Pressure Shadow" features
"Baby Carriage" is from New Arrival @ 2 1/2

"fourth of JULY" is from Graphically Speaking @ 1 3/4
The hats are cut from patterned paper I have and pop dotted for some dimension

"BOO" is welded in DS with Don Juan (my FAVORITE font!!)
"Pumpkin" is from Doodlecharms @ 1 3/4 with googley eyes
"Spider" is from Doodlecharms @ 1 3/4 with black flocking and googley eyes as well

Opposites Attract for "Thankful" @ 1 1/2
Doodlecharms "Basket"@ 2 1/2

Doodlecharms for "Santa" @ 2
Doodlecharms fpr"Reindeer" @ 1 3/4

Snow Friends for "Snowlady" @ 3 3/4
Don Juan under pressure & under pressure shadow for "SNOW" @1 1/2
Don Juan for "Much Fun" @ 1"

Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page - Snowflake - punched on a 5x5 page so the mat would be 4x4

**This page is my personal favorite!!** I can totally see this as a waaay cute scrapbook page in my future!
"Valentines Day" from Simply Sweet @ 1"
"Stamp" from Create-a-Critter @ 2 1/2, but the words "love" inside the stamp were actually cut at 2 3/4 - I just wanted it to look larger
The envelopes and "LoveNotes" were all done in DS.

I'm so sorry but I've lost my measurements for the next few pages.
The basket, bunny and eggs were all cut from Doodlecharms
The "happy easter" are thickers

The only cricut on the summer page is the "sun" and he is from Doodlecharms as well.

The cupcake is made in DS.

No cricut use on this paper, just a simple birthday wish with a ribbon detailing.

Well that's it! Thanks for looking!

Happy crafting!

S'Mores LO

Hey everyone! I have officially finished my two summer classes and hope to get more crafts posted soon! Here is a LO I did a few weeks ago but haven't had time to get posted yet.

Here is a I did for when my MIL and I took some time to make S'mores while we were enjoying the outdoor and a firepit one evening.

Before I did the LO I was at my local HL and saw this sticker pack and almost bought it for the "smores" sticker only. I decided before I would buy it I would try my hand at making this cut with my DS program. The picture below this one shows my version of the sticker. I am pretty happy about it!
Feel free to use my .cut file for "Smores" on the top left hand side of my blog or here.

The campfire was cut from Camp Out and the sticks with marshmallows and grass are cut from Every Day Paper Dolls.

Thanks for looking and leave me a comment!
Happy crafting!
