Cricut Cut Teacup Gift Holder

Hi friends, This post is for you CRICUT lovers!  A cheery little cup of tea for the holidays! You’ll find this project in the  Cricut Craft Room Project Center and you can download the cut file for free!  All the detailed instructions are there too. (Accent Essentials and A Child’s Year cartridges used for this project)  This is so simple and quick to make for those last minute little gifts for friends and family, teachers, and neighbors. Plenty of room on the back to write a thoughtful sentiment too!  It can easily hold a gift card instead of the two teabags if you prefer!  What I love about this little cup is that it stands on it’s own thanks to the ‘saucer’ under it!  Let me know what you think of this project and I’d love to know if you try it too! Have a creative day! Deena Advertisements

Cricut Baby Christening Card

I have written a new cricut project tutorial for a Baby Christening card framed with soft ribbon.  Of course the framing technique could be used for many different card occasions, not just for baby’s christening.  Just change up the colors and the image!  You can see the full tutorial with step by step photos at CUSTOM CROPS.  They have fabulous projects there and always FREE for you!  I always appreciate your comments and questions if you have any!  Have a great day and I hope you enjoy the Custom Crops tutorial!  Deena Related articles Published!

CAS Silhouette

This took me less than 10 minutes to make! I love quick and easy cards… This sweet silhouette is cut at 2 1/4″ from A CHILD’S YEAR cartridge, with the cricut.  The top portion of the card is embossed with the “With Love” cuttlebug embossing folder.  I used my Scor-Pal to score two lines above and below the embossing. The sentiment  is from Bonnidee stamps “French Wording”, it simply means Happy Birthday.  It’s stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink.  Memento inks rock by the way! Thanks so much for stopping by!!  Keep it simple,  and have a great day! Deena

Best Teacher!

With the end of school in sight and our Crafty Creations challenge being a great color combo this week, this card was born!  I need a few teacher cards for “thank you’s” and this one will be for my son’s kindergarten teacher.  The Crafty Creations challenge theme set by Georgia is to make a card in black and white with a splash of red!  I love this combo, because it can be so elegant, or it can be striking and theatrical, or simply bold and fun!  The DT did a great job of showing all these styles I think, so pop on over for some inspiration! I used my Cricut to cut the boy/chalkboard silhouette and the book icon from “A Child’s Year”.  I get so much use out of the cartridge!!  So, I am also entering this into Speedy’s Friends challenge to make a silhouette card. The chalkboard words are from  a set called Homeroom by the Paper Company Studio, and Imaginisce snag ’em stamps.   The background stamp and the “thank you” behind the …
