365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#74 Ahoy! (Paper Playtime Challenge#5) Queen!!!


Here's what the card looks like when you first look at it. Peek a boo!

Here's what the card looks like when you pull out the wave with the octopus floating.

Ahoy! The sea monster!
 The outer part of the card.


I am so happy to be Queen for a week at Paper Playtime (Paper Playtime challenge 5) for this weeks challenge it's Ahoy Matey!  I decided to make a b-day card for a little boy (or girl) using CAC for the octopus I wanted the octopus to look like a sea monster lurking on the waves, so that's why I made him blue to blend in with the water and  I embossed with my Cuttlebug, I also embossed the title. The wave attached to the octopus is from LAB. I cut 3 layers for everything because I didn't want anything to rip as you pull it out of the pocket. I made the pocket card by cutting a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card in half diagonally to make a triangle, then I glued only one side of the triangle so that I can make a pocket. To make the waves on the pocket part I ripped 3 strips of paper then I used my Broken China distress ink on the waves and octopus.
