MPS Color Challenge

One of my the Cricut-related blogs that I visit daily ( hosted a challenge today...I couldn't resist! We had to create something that used the colors of pink, green, and black....and we would be entered to win the Cricut Create-a-Critter cartridge! How cool! I already had to make a card for my best friend, wishing her some good luck this week. She is one of 5 semi-finalists for the 2011 State of Maine Teacher of the Year, and she has a HUGE day this Thursday, as the selection committee is visiting her school for the day to interview kids, fellow teachers, and her students, as well as observing her!! She needs all the well wishes she can get! I plan on giving her this card, as she is such a ROCK STAR! I used the Cricut Once Upon a Princess cartridge....can't get enough of this one lately! Hope you like it!!

Easter Princesses...

I had gotten the Cricut Once Upon a Princess cartridge for Valentine's Day from my wonderful hubby, and I hadn't played with it at all! So, with Easter coming up, I thought it might be the perfect opportunity to try a few cuts. I made these Princess crowns and wands for my daughter and 2 of my nieces. Of course, with playing around like they were, the wands didn't last long, but the crowns stood up pretty well, and the 2 younger girls (with the purple crowns) wore them all morning long. They are pretty simple to do, and you could embellish them with some bling as well, which I did before I gave them to the girls...but after I took the pictures...oops!!
Anyway, I think I'm going to have some more fun with this cartridge soon! It's got some really great cuts!!

Matryoshka Nesting Dolls!!!

I made the super cute Matryoshka Dolls from the Cricut cartridge, Paisley, into nesting boxes that will go on a shelf in my daughter's room. I have decorated her room completely in cuts and crafts inspired by the Paisley cartridge, and it has turned out better than I could picture in my head!! I have an earlier post that shows the details of that...go ahead and check it out!
