Elmo Crayon Box

So there is a sweet little boy who just turned 2 and I wanted to make something special for him. Since we were only giving him some toys my youngest daughter was donating to him and some money, it had to be something different. I was going to make a pop-up box card but I thought, I already did that earlier in the year for his sister. I knew he liked Elmo so I flipped through some of my Sesame Street and Elmo Cricut cartridges and found alot of things I liked. I decided that the size of the crayon box on the Elmo's Party Cricut cartridge was perfect to not only hold a box of crayons but the money too and that is what I decided to do.

I used these items to create my Elmo Crayon Box:

  • Elmo's Party Cricut cartridge - Elmo crayon box cut @ 8 inches and all layers
  • Martha Stewart red (ladybug) flocking powder - on Elmo's face 
  • Glossy accents - on the crayons
  • Black pen - on the crayons
  • My Craft Spot clear stamp set - In & Out Set #2 - Happy Birthday and back sentiment
  • black and white ink

This was such a fun and easy project. Thank you so much for checking out my Elmo Crayon Box.

My Craft Spot Challenge #152 - Blast From the Past

This is an interesting challenge coming to you from My Craft Spot Challenge #152 - Blast From the Past - You are to pick a favorite project you have created some time in the past using My Craft Spot Products. I choose my Tulip Happy Birthday Pop Up Box Card

I used the My Craft Spot Clear Stamps Inside & Out Set 2 for the front and the back of this card. I love the way this card turned out and my mom still has it sitting on her table 3 months after her birthday.

Party Time Layout

I created this page in record time today, about 3 hours, and that included drying time for the stickles and glossy accents. I made this for a birthday gift for a friend of my daughter's. The birthday sleepover was tonight and I needed to get it done in a hurry. I spent all week taking care of my mom and her house that it was just not possible to even look at it until this morning. I was a little bummed because I thought I had a nicer zebra print paper but I couldn't find it or I had already used it. I am though very happy with the way it turned out.

I created a hidden tag for journaling.

Here are just some more close ups:

I used these items to create my Party Time Layout:
  • Life's a Party Cricut cartridge - pink and zebra cuts and "CELEBRATE"
  • Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 Cricut cartridge - tag
  • Pink and black stickles
  • White gel pen
  • foam squares - behind the "CELEBRATE"

Fall Straw Hat Girl

I can't tell you how long I have been wanting to make this. I know I have had that straw hat for at least 3 years. I also had all of the other items to create this hat for many years too. I think she turned out super cute. Living in the valley of the sun, Arizona, I don't get the Fall that I remember from my youth in New Jersey so I have to create it. As soon as September hits I start to bring out my Fall decorations so that it at least feels a little like Fall in my house. So I finally got all of the items out that I needed to create my hat and here she is.  I just love her!
