Cricut challenge

I have been trying to do the challenges every night on the Cricut message board.  Some nights it is harder than others to get it done. Especially when I don't get off work until 6pm. Here is tonights challenge. It is a card for my second granddaughter that is due very soon.

I made this layout for tonights challenge on the Cricut message board.
My daughter has a band concert coming up and I thought I would get a head start on the layout.

I made this card using my new A Child's Year cart.  I made this one kind of simple thinking that I may send it to my Grandpa so I did not want it to be to girly looking.  It is very hard for me not to add and bling, stickles or flowers to anything I create.  I love this paper pack from K&Co.  It is very thick and double sided.  You can't tell from the picture but I did layer the sillouette on with pop dots with a shadow behind the image.

Altered ATG

Yay me!  I had bought an Atg last year and altered it purple as soon as I got it.  Well it turned out to be one of the defective ones so I sent it back and was sent a new one along with atg tape for my trouble :)
(Dummy me.  I fought with that first gun forever.  I guess I thought it was suppose to be hard to pull the tape on.  The new one is like butter! LOVE IT!!)
Anyway when I received my replacement I was feeling pink that day I guess cause this is how it ended up.  I could not find any rub ons that I really loved so I just cut the flourish from a cricut cart out of  white contact paper.  Added stickles and bling.  I bought my first bottle of Glimmer Mist and used it on the gun and the flowers.  Ok, I am now addicted to Glimmer Mist.  I may try and make my own though because I am going through that bottle very quick. 


Here is a one of the mailboxes I bought at Target.  I used a Valentine paper pack also from Target and some of my scraps to make this. This was the first mailbox I have altered.  It went together really fast!

Sour Cream Containers

This was my first shot at making sour cream containers. I don't remember what size I cut the paper maybe 6 x 4 1/2? Anyway I put 1 reese's peanut butter cup and 1 mini Hershey's in them. I used a dollar stamp that I bought at Michael's last year. The paper is from a Martha Stewart pack that I picked up on clearance. These went together really fast!

Baby girl tag album

Our second grandchild is due in March so I wanted to make her an album to put the first photos in. This is a toilet paper tag album. They are super easy to make. This one has 4 pages with tags. I just need to add mats and photos.

Travel mug

I made this travel mug for my daughter who is obsessed with Twilight. And she is totally in love with Jasper. It is kind of hard to see from the picture but I used the drippy goo punch and added stickles and ribbon. The only cricut cut is the scalloped circle from storybook. The paper is from a Christmas paper stack that I absolutely love that I bought at Hobby Lobby. I got the idea to make the mug from my sister who made a really cute mug with Edward on it. Yes, our family is crazy about the Twilight series.
