Graduation Items

These are the items that I made with my Cricut for my DS graduation dinner that we are having next weekend. He is my last son that we graduated (we home schooled him and our oldest son).Yaaaaaaaaaaaaa we are done.
Napkins: I found the wrapped napkin and cutlery sets in the colors needed and I made small caps and taped them to the napkin rings.
Card: I made the card by first printing the inside of the card then made the large cap and lettering for the outside of the card.
Treat Box: I made a square box and attached a square to the top, made a tassel using yarn that was attached with a black brad. Inside is a small sack of M&Ms.
Centerpiece: I still need to insert his pic, I engraved his name and 2009 to the plate using my cricut with the engraving needle.
Cartridges used: Lyrical Letters, Locker Talk, Tags, Bags, Boxes & More, Base Camp

Mother's Day

This year for Mother's Day (as with all holidays since I purchased my Cricut) I want Cricut stuff. These are the two carts my DH got for me. With these two it brings me to a total of (drum roll please lol) 34 not counting the two I have coming. I don't count them until I have them in my hands.

Wedding Plate

This is a belated anniversary gift for my BIL and his wife. I have been doing glass etching for a short time now, and love it. It is a lot easier then it looks, but it does take some practice. You must remember to make sure that the etching cream does not touch anywhere you do not want to etch. But if you do touch somewhere you did not want to just add a small image to cover that spot, like a heart or a flower. I also put painters tape around my vinyl just to extent my protection. The carts that I used were Wedding, Calligraphy Collection, and Storybook. The vinyl was by Provo Craft. I look for glass everywhere I shop. I have a little stash now to make for gifts. I use my cricut for everything. Especially for card making and glass etching.

Mother's Day Card

This is a Mother's Day card for my neighbor. This is my 2nd of this style, I also made the same style for my DH for Father's Day. When I first saw this card I thought it was going to be so hard to make, but it was super easy and very quick. I used the cricut with the Calligraphy Collection cart. I used Glossy Accents on the wording. On the inside is white card stock with a saying stamped on it. Sorry but I don't know the name of the paper I used (I keep my paper separated by style) there was no writing on it.

Family Word Book

This is my 2nd word book. These are so fun to make. I don't have the other embellishments or pics on it yet. I made one Friday for my DH to give to his mother for Mothers Day and forgot to take pics of it , it said MOM. She really loved it. I used the DS with the cricut. The carts are George & Basic Shapes and Storybook. The paper is by American Crafts and Paper Pizazz. I also used my new pink Zutter Bind-it-all.
