Here is my Valentine's Day project 


 
I had not used my Seasonal Soirees cartridge yet so I choose to make the little Valentine's Day treat holder. I simply put my 12x12 piece of cardstock on my mat, hit the Fit to Page button, choose the corresponding number to the treat holder and hit cut. Once I had decorated the treat holder the way I wanted I was then able to adhere the treat holder together. It was super easy and a whole lot of fun.
 
I used these items to create my Valentine's Day treat holder:
  • Seasonal Soirees Cricut cartridge - treat holder
  • Sweethearts Cricut cartridge - cupid
  • Studio G glitter glue
  • Craft Smith cardstock - hot pink 
  • Crate Paper (Hello Love) - cupid arrow pattern paper
I am entering my Valentine's Day treat holder to the following challenges:
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my Valentine treat holder today. I hope you join in on the fun over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge.

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #292 - Something New

 I AM BACK!!!

It feels so good to be back creating again. I'm also so happy to be back designing again for Fantabulous Cricut.Challenge Blog. So let's get going.


Challenge #292-Something New
Make a project using a new technique, cartridge, embellishment, etc.

This Weeks Sponsor


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.

Any project that doesn't use a Cricut element will be deleted.

Here is what I have created for this challenge:
 
 
So if you don't know already from my previous blog post, I was unable to create or blog for over a year. During that time I became a caregiver to my elderly mother. She passed away in early November and I'm still trying to pick up the pieces. I had very little help but for those who have helped me I thought I'd create a little thank you card to show my appreciation.
 
My inspiration for this card was my Mom's kitchen window and 1 of her cats. She had 5 cats, 3 dogs and 3 fish at the time of her passing and I took them all in. So I now have 11 cats, 6 dogs, 3 fish and a bearded dragon. I feel the image of the black cat gazing out the window into the sky was a reflection of how I, and my mom's beloved pets, feel looking to find her in the heavens.
 
I used these items to create my card:
  • Spring Cottage Cricut cartridge *my Something New* - window cut at 4 1/2
  • A Child's Year Cricut cartridge - cat cut at 2
  • ZooBalloo Cricut cartridge *my Something Old* - clouds cut at 1 3/4
  • Fiskers texture plate (carpet) - texture on the "wall"
  • Cardstock: white, kraft, black, sky blue
  • Card dimensions 6 x 4 1/2
 
 I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my card today. I hope you join in on the fun over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge.
