Just Buggin' Challenge #17 - Inky Fingers

Hop on over to Just Buggin' for this weeks Challenge Inky fingers. Use ink on a cricut cut. I know this post is on an odd day, Christmas, but my posting days are Friday, so I pre-scheduled this for today on Christmas.
On this gift card holder I used Wild Card cut at 4 1/2 inches and snow friends snowman cut at 3 inches. I love these little guys.

I hope you are having a great day your family, and I'll see you next Friday as we ring in the New Year with Challenge #18.

Merry Christmas,

Just Buggin' Challenge #16 - Santa's Helper

This week over at Just Buggin' we needed to make something as Santa's Helper (make a gift for someone you love). Well Zippy Zac our Elf on a Shelf comes each year and steals some scrapbook supplies, either a card - something. Well this year he made a mess of scrapbooks room, using my Gypsy (the nerve of him), using my good card paper I just bought. He made himself a box and tag so he could write a note to Robby. If you would like to make something fun for someone you love pleas join us over at Just Buggin' for this weeks challenge. Here are some pictures....Enjoy!

Just Buggin Challenge 13 - Sew it

Over at Just Buggin this week the challenge is to sew on a project. Not something I usually do, so it was definately outside my comfort zone. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, enjoyed shopping on this Black Friday (I did) and are now home relaxing ready to sit down and enjoy all those carts you for the great deals. I went out for Designer Calendar on Thanksgiving Day at Michael's, it was the only cart I really wanted.

Hope you enjoy my project.

Just Buggin Challenge #12 - Triple Whammy

This week's challenge is all about the die cuts!

Challenge 12 -Triple Whammy -use at least 3 Cricut die cuts on your project!!

I made this cute box and used die cuts from Joys of the season, the box is from tags, bags, boxes and more. My tip of the week: When putting ribbon on your projects glue a piece of cardstock under the ribbon and it will stand up and not wilt. Join us over at Just Buggin and post a project for our challenges.

Stampin Up Punch Art with Cricut & Gypsy

I saw this cute reindeer (it was a punch project on Angie Kennedy's stampin up website

I didn't have several of the punches, put I really wanted to make one. I used george for the oval (cut at 2"), PPDU for the antlers (cut at 4"), Two 1/2 inch circles (cut from george), cropadile for the eyes, 1/4 inch circle cut (cut from george) and for the hair part, I used a flower from doodlecharms (cut at 1.48) and rotated and welded it to make it look like baha blossum punch, then cut it in 1/2 . My friend is sending reindeer food to the kids this year as surprise, and this is what I'm making for the cards. I used the gypsy for my placement and sizing.
