Happy New Year everyone. I'm here today with a project for Queen of my Craftroom. Our challenge was to create a "New Year's" themed project.
I created a New Years hat from the Craftroom Exclusive files.
I cut the hat out at 11" 
The 2012 is cut out at 2" from Plantin Schoolbook along with Happy New Year.

Hope you like!!!

Have a safe and Happy New Year!!!!

Some M&M Christmas Treats

I made these cute M&M sticks for my daughter's 4th grade classmates. I used the stamp from Jaded Blossom along with the treat bags.

Some of my Christmas Cards


Here are some of the Christmas Cards I made for family and friends!!

Hope you like them :)

Snowman gift box

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas!!! It went by way to fast :( A reason why I haven't posted in a couple of weeks, I was busy making things and spending time with my kids and hubby!!!

So here is the Snowman gift box I made using the cupcake from the Sweet Tooth Boxes Cricut cartridge.

I cut the bottom part of the cupcake box out at 11" cut twice to make two. After I put this together I realized I should have used the top and bottom of the cupcake not just the top :( 
The eyes are cut from the George cart at 2" and the buttons at 1/2"
The nose is a triangle cut at 2" and folded into the shape of a nose
The hat is two circles, one cut at 5" and the small one cut at 2.5" and a rectangle cut at 3x6" and scored on the long sides at 1/2" on one side and 1/4" on the other long side. When done scoring cut triangles up to the score line, this is where you will glue the two circles together for the hat.
Flowers are cut at 2" and 1.5"
Thanks for looking and if you make one I would LOVE to see it!!!

Girl/Boy Gingerbread Place Cards

Happy Monday!!

I made these for a friend/client who needed 40 of them for her Christmas dinner table.

I used the Gingerbread Cricut Cartridge and welded two Gingi's together and sized them at 8"
I used a white Sharpie poster - paint pen for the white detailing
I cut brown card stock at 1 1/2 x 2 1/2
and the white card stock at 2 1/4 x 1
added red MS glitter to the girl
and MS green for the boy
and added Red and White baker's twin to the place card
I hand drew the boy's face and used PK for the girls face

I used the Jolly Holiday's cartridge for the 
Merry Christmas saying and the snowflake is from 
Winter Woodland cartridge. If I can remember correctly
I cut them both out at 2" lol.. I keep forgetting to write down the sizes after cutting haha.. 
The pointsettia's are picks from Michael's and hot glued onto the top. I purchased a 20 light strand from Walmart for $1.88 and added them to the inside of the block :)
