FCCB #117 - B-B-Q Time

Hello everyone,

Its time for a new challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. This is last 
challenge in my first term as a FCCB DT member. I said  first because I was 
chosen to continue on with the DT for a second term. I am really excited about
 that. Before I get into this week's post I would like to say goodbye to the ladies 
I served with in the over the past four months and say welcome to the ladies 
I will be working with for the next four months. 

This month's theme is B-B-Q Time. Make a project using hotdog, hamburger, 
etc (BBQ or Picnic foods). This month I was inspired by beautiful summer shape
cards in Paper Crafts Magazine. I made a hamburger shaped card.

I could not keep it way from my son. He really does not like eating meat like 
most almost 5 year olds but it it is in the form of a hamburger he will 
happily eat it up! 

What was used: Cricut Gypsy

Paperdolls for Everyday (hamburger)
Simply Charmed (text)
Create A Critter (flag)

Please visit FCCB and see the DT project and help to welcome the new DT

FCCB Challenge #115: Father's Day

Hello everyone,

Its Monday! Time for a new challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. This week our challenge to you is Make a cake using an outdoor theme; hunting, fishing, hiking etc. 

This theme is perfect for a Father's Day card for my husband. He has been so excited about hiking since our move to CA. I have also been loving our family hikes too. Its so nice to get out and move, its part of the reason my weight loss have been going so well. 

I love this cut! He looks almost as happy as my husband on his hikes.  Here is family shot of us on one of our hikes.

What was used:
Cricut Car Decals Cartridge
Gypsy (to hide contours to get a blackout cut)
Hero Arts Celebrate Everyday Stamps
American Crafts Rue Alphabet Stamps
DCWV The Guy Stack
Recollections Basics Light Blue Distressed Paper
Cardstock: Recollection and Bazzill
Colorbox Olive Pastel Chalk Inks

Hope you will join us this week for our challenge at FCCB. Stop by and see the fabulous DT projects. I can't wait to see your cards.

Happy Scrapping

FCCB Challenge #114: Don't Bug Me

Hello everyone,

Its time for a new challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. This week our challenge is Don't Bug Me! Make a project using some sort of bug. When I think bug I immediately think 'butterfly'  So you won't be surprised that there is a butterfly on my project.

I wanted to use my newly purchased carts Sophisticated and My Quiet Book for this challenge. The argle and circle are from Sophisticated and the butterfly is from My Quiet Book. The card base is from Elegant Edges.

When I make shape cards I usually weld my card base on my Gypsy, but this time I cut two of the same shapes, scored and glued them together at the top. So that my scallop is whole all the way around. You might remember that Holly posted a video on FCCB's Thursday Tutorial on how to make these shape cards using two die cut images. If you would like to see this tutorial again click HERE.

My card was heavily inspired by a demo card I made using Spellbinders at Michaels in May. I really liked how it turned out so I decided to do something similar with my Cricut.

What was used:
Cricut Elegant Edges Cart
Cricut My Quiet Book Cart
Cricut Sophisticated Cart
My Pink Stamper Itty Bitty-licious
Martha Stewart Vintage Girl Paper Pad
Celebrate It Ribbon
Queen and Co. Snowflake Pearls

Please visit us at FCCB and see what the fabulous DT have created and join in our challenge.
Bug hugs!

Happy Scrapping!
