Hello everyone,

What was used:
Cricut Pretty Pennants
Cricut American Alphabet
Cricut Boys Will Be Boys
Cricut Birthday Bash
Cricut Doodlecharms
Recollection Cardstock

Hello everyone,

I hope you are having a wonderful day! I had a crazy week last week with getting ready for a big promotion for the classes I teach and helping to plan our block party! Both on the same day!

Lets get into our challenge this week at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog! This week we are challenging you to make a project with some sort of automobile (planes, trains, cars, bikes, etc). I used Everyday Pop Up Cards to make a pop-up card. I have had this card for  awhile, used it a few times but never did a pop-up.

I used my Gypsy to size the airplane onto the pop-up card so that I pop-up image would have the layers.

Cricut Gypsy
Cricut Everyday Pop Up Cards
Recollections cardstock
DCWV Metallic cardstock
Ribbon from my stash
Ranger Broken China Distress Ink

FCCB Challenge #127: On The Job

 Hello Everyone,

It's time for another challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. This week we are challenging you to make a project with an occupational character (police, mail carriers, doctors, teachers, etc).

I made this card for my daughters class to give to our local Fire fighters. The kids had a fun afternoon wih the guys who welcomed them and showed them around the station. I enjoyed the trip too. I made the card 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 to give the kids enough space to sign it.

I like to cut the accessories from the Paperdolls Carts a few times in different colors  and edit them so that the images have different color layers. As I did with the fire truck (the firefighters have white trucks in our city).

What was used:
Cricut Everyday Paperdolls
Peachy Keen Everyday Character Faces Assortment
Stampendous Happy Messages Stamp Set
DCWV Patterned Paper
Recollections Cardstock
Signo White Pen
Black ink

Happy Scrapping!
