Cookie Recipe Swap

Here are a couple of Cookie Recipe layouts I made for a swap on the Cricle message board

I typed the recipes and cut them like a recipe card using From My Kitchen.  Then I laminated them with my Your Story.  The Cookie jar is from Sesame Street Friends and the raspberries are from Preserves.  On the second one I cut a shape from Sentimenals, folded it and put the recipe card inside.  the mixing bowl and mixer are from From My Kitchen.

Hope you like them.

Sweet Tooth Box

This is the side of a box I made for the circle challenge .  I used the Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge .  I paired it up with a new cartridge by Teresa Collins, called Chic & Scary. 

Here are some of the other views.  Hope you like it.

This box is large enough to hold some homemade cookies or other goodies.

Christmas Card

This is my first attempt at the Flower Shoppe cart.  I used Graphic 45 paper and Stampin' Up! card stock.  I sprayed the flower with SU! vanilla smooch spritz.  I made this for a personal challenge some friends and I decided to do to get us motivated to do some crafting.

Thanks for looking.

Vacation 2011

Another challenge!

This is for the weekly Circle challenge.  We were to do something from our vacation.
This year we went to Gatlinburg, TN.  As always, we visit Cades Cove.  It is a very scenic drive to and thru the cove.  There are beautiful mountain views, streams along the road and, of course WILD LIFE!

We love seeing the bears as you never know if you will see any.  This time we were very fortunate to see several.  I really enjoyed making these pages.  Thanks for looking.

Here are the pages side by side.  I used Camping critters, base camp, and camp out  for the cuts.  Everything was made from my stash!

Halloween Layout

Another Cricut Circle challenge! 
This month we were challenged to make a "scene".  I decided to make a Halloween theme layout for my Grandkids.  I will put their pictures on here after Halloween.
I mostly used a cartridge called Qct. 31st.,  and paper dolls dressup.  The words were done with Blackletter.

Thanks for looking.

Here are some closer views

Broccoli Salad

Another contest entry for the Cricut Circle Blog.
This is for the July contest.  I made a layout for a recipe book.  I used several cuts from my cricut and DS, for the veggies, and used flower soft to add  a lifelike look for the head of broccoli.  The ingredients needed for the salad are on the back of the broccoli so you can take it to the store with you to buy what you need.  I really like that idea so you don't have to write everyhting down or try to remember what you need.

Thanks for looking.

This is a pennant I created for a contest for Cricut.  There is a meet up of circle members on July 22 and they are asking the Cricut Circle members to make a pennant to represent their state with something that is relarted to the are that they live in.  I chose the Cincinnati Bengals.  You can't tell but, I used glitter on the "WHO DEY".  They are also having a contest too!

Flying Pig Lay Out

This was my grandsons' first 5k marathon in 2009 when he was 8.  The Flying Pig Marathon is one of the most popular marathons along with the Boston Marathon.  Many people run the Flying Pig to prepare for the Boston.

Gift Box

I made this gift box for the May monthly challenge on the Cricut Circle blog.  All of  the cuts are from Plantin Schoolbook.  The box was cut using the fit to page button on my E, the flowers and leaves were cut at 1.5 and 1 inches.  "Just Because" was cut from the wild card cartridge at 5.
My daughter will be giving this to a friend, filled with goodies, who is having surgery soon.
Hope you like it.  This was the first thing I cut with my new PINK E!

All the paper is from SU!  I cut the ribbon at 3", "Hope" at 1 1/2", the flower at 2" and used the shadow for the ribbon and word.
