National Thank a Police Officer Day 2015

This past Saturday, September 19, 2015, was National Thank a Police Officer Day. My best friend is married to a Phoenix police officer and she asked me if I would make some posters for her for a little celebration she was putting together for the Phoenix Police Department. I, of course, said yes.

I made 2 posters out of 1 black poster and 1 blue poster, plus white cardstock.

Here is the other poster I made.

I also decided to make a simple easel card to express my thanks to the Phoenix Police Department.


I used these items to make my posters and card:
  • Black and blue posters
  • Black and white cardstock
  • Cake Basics Cricut cartridge -  Thank You Phoenix PD poster
  • Beyond Birthdays, Calligraphy Collection, Jasmine, and Phrases Cricut cartridges - Many Thanks poster
  • Storybook Cricut cartridge - Thank You card
  • Silver Star brads - card
I am entering my posters and card in the following challenges:
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my National Thank a Police Officer Day posters and card.

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #260 - Kids

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #260-Kids
Make a project for a Kid 

This Weeks Sponsor

The prize is 7 digital stamps!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

And, if you submit a project in our challenge that isn't a card, you will get two entries for a chance to win the prize instead of one!

This is what I created for this weeks challenge.

Here I added foam squares to add some dimension

This angel displays the party elements I added and lots of stickles

A very special little boy I know is turning 3 at the end of this month. I found out from his mother that she was having a snowman/winter theme for her son's birthday party. I had just received my Frozen Cricut cartridge for my birthday last month so of course I had to make an Olaf card. I also wanted to try a different type of card, a card that I hadn't made before, a tri-fold shutter card. I can tell you this, I will only be making these types of cards for very special occasions...there are a lot of layers and places to fill. I do though love the fact that this type of card allows you to put it on display. I wanted to add more images but I didn't want to hide the pretty pattern paper too much. I love the way this card turned out. I know the little boy I made this for will love it too but I think his mom will love it more.

I used these items to create my Olaf Birthday card:
  • Frozen Cricut cartridge - Olaf
  • Create a Critter 2 Cricut cartridge - party hat and blowout
  • Mickey Font Cricut cartridge - 3
  • Bazzill cardstock: Diamond and Glitz
  • Black, white, orange, blue and brown cardstocks 
  • foam squares
  • foam tape
I am entering my Olaf Birthday card in the following challenges:

I really do love the way this card turned out, I hope you do too. Thank you for stopping by and checking out my Olaf Birthday card. Please head on over to Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog and enter your own project for a child.
