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

Frosted Window Technique

I hope all you Mom’s out there are having a great day!! My boys brought me breakfast in bed!  Their Daddy had made fresh strawberry pancakes, coffee and orange juice  and they brought it to me with big grins after letting me sleep in until 10am!  I got some sweet cards and kisses too! I am getting some “quiet time” to myself now and thought I’d post the card I made last night… I was inspired to make this after visiting Allee’s gallery.  She is the reigning queen for the Queen for the Day game on SCS.  If you would like to join in on the fun and games and honor Lynn as QFTD08 the SCS forum link is HERE. I used this “frosted window” technique that I first heard of at Toy’s Haven.  Holly came up with this technique and made a gorgeous floral card for the technique challenge she made it for,  so be sure to have a look!
