I have made a few projects to share with you today, so lets go check them out..
My first project was done using the Robotz and Indie Art Cricut Cartridges.
Obviously my fingers are not included in the card, but I couldn't get the lil booger to stay closed long enough for its picture! He was just bursting with excitement for his big debut! LOL
The robot is cut at 5 1/2" and the large gear was cut from the Indie Art cart at 6 1/2". the smaller gear that is directly under the robot was cut at 4 1/2".
I made my next project using Word Builders; A Word Party. I made this for my 2 year old nephew, we are going to frame it and hang it in his room.
What a cute cartridge! I have had this one for awhile , but never used it! Boy was I missing out! Look how cute this is!!
Everything was cut at 5".
I altered the train by taking off the cow pusher.( because we all know Thomas doesn't have a cow pusher! LOL)
This cartridge does not have many "layers" so I made my own :)
And, (although I think it would be a great idea for a cartridge,HINT, HINT) I drew my own "Thomas" face. Its not perfect, but Johnny doesn't care! LOL
Notice how his name is long enough to use all of the rainbow colors?
So this project is becoming a multiple learning tool too!
Now, notice something else? Thomas is #1 and the Caboose is #8..now he can learn to recognize his letters, name, colors and numbers!! (I will be adding the remaining numbers to the letter cars, and brads in between everything to hold it together at a later date to finish the project)
DANG! I am a great Aunt! LOL
All of the black that you see on the project is actually a marker. My intention was to laminate all of these and let him play with them, and didn't want all of the extra bulk, but Thomas turned out so well that we decided to frame it...don't worry I will make him one to play with too! :)
Onward to the next project..shall we?..
I made a card using Elmos Party and Create a Critter Cricut cartridges.
I was in a mood to make a landscaped card. I am not sure if that is its official name, but it is what I call it. And I wanted to be able to use the cartridge for something other than a kids party, so I challenged myself to think outside the box and try something new..again!
Who doesn't love watching Elmo fly his kite in the park?!!
Elmo was cut at 2" using the Elmos Party cartridge and the trees and sun were cut at multiple sizes from the Create a Critter cartridge.
I love this card..it is simple but complicated.
I made an extra project, a fun card (and matching envelope of course) for my not so little anymore cousin graduating from Luther college..and yep I used the Elmos Party! ( I told you I wanted to use the cartridge for something other than a kids party!)
All of the notes were cut at various sizes.
I embossed the music notes with my cuttlebug folder, I also hand embossed all of the raised notes on the card and envelope with my ScrapBoss embossing tools.
He is a very talented young man and although he sings more than plays piano, I will always remember him astonishing us while playing on Nanas piano at such a young age. He has an amazing future to look forward to and we are so proud of him.
