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.

#94, 95,96 Three vacation Layouts!

For this LO I originally made it for the Throwback Thursday birthday challenge but I didn't realize it ended on Saturday night, that's okay though! The birds are from CAC I embossed their wings with my cuttlebug and added a pop dot to the wings and hats, party hat is from ACY, sombrero hat is from Designer's Calendar I colored in the design with markers. Music notes from Hannah Montana, font is from Lyrical Letters, balloons from OUAP I stamped their faces, I handmade the black flower with the red button, I did the journaling on the green polka dot paper. This was my last page of my Mazatlan B-day Vacation book, I wanted to highlight some of the things we did and saw.

For this entired LO I used CAC for the title, mouse, cheese and camera...they were all on the same button feature! I made the mouse look like he was standing on top of the camera with a pop dot I also put a pop dot behind the cheese. I embossed the camera with CB and added silver stickles to the camera's "Flash". I inked the camera and the cheese with my Walnut Stain distress ink.  I put the large piece of patterned paper behind the pic of me and my son so it could "look" like it's in a picture frame. I cut 2 strips of border paper and put it on the bottom with 3 buttons on the left.
I did this page a while ago and didn't realize I haven't posted it yet, this is my 1st page for my Mazatlan album. I cut a large heart on vellum paper and did faux stitching from AE, the 2 other hearts on the left are also from AE. The red heart on the right which I stamped is from PS, also the brackets and font are from PS. I did some stamping (floral and bird) with my Tim Holtz stamps which I love! I also added a border from a Martha Stewart punch, ribbon, and fancy large black brads.


So for this post I decided to post 3 in 1 since my goal is to complete 365 projects in 365 days....I'm kind of behind so this is my way of catching up! There's a description for each LO under each pic, if you have any questions on which carts I used for each LO please don't hesitate to ask!

#85 Creepy and Cool LO

For this LO I challenged myself to use a lot of non-Cricut products since those products are piling up in my scrapbook room. I couldn't resist and I just had to use my Cricut! The gator is from EDPD I found the perfect embossing plate for my gator it was actaully a Fiskars plate. The title "Creepy" is from Blackletter, "and" is from ACY and "cool" is from Paisley, I added stickles and chalk ink to these. The large pink marquee for the background was from TTK. I did some stamping with a border stamp, I placed two flower stickers on my page, one I put on top of the red silk flower, and the pink frame around the gator is from K&Company. So for the pictures in this LO I did some major zooming in on my camera to capture all the detail in these "Creepy and Cool" animals, the green frogs blend in with the leaves, the tan frogs looked like raw chicken gross! And look at those sharp teeth on that monster!

#84 Just like Riding a Bike Card (challenge w/my sis, Cricut Cardz)

I chose this card from Just Because Cards for challenge #7 with my sister Joanna and also for Cricut Cardz Challenge which was to make any cut from any cart.  I cheated a little bit because I did not cut the card or envelope, I did cut the bike and added stickles to all the different colored paper. For the sentiment I used the Stencil feature and got a cotton ball and blue chalk ink to make it look like a stamped image, then I added blue stickles over it. I also put a strip of purple satin ribbon, tied a knot and added stickles for faux bling, for a final touch I misted with glimmer mist.

#82 Bubbles theme for (Paper Playtime #7)

Plenty of bubbly embossing LOL!

I am so happy and excited to be Queen again at Paper Playtime for the Bubbles theme. I decided to do a LO of my son's 1st trip to the Aquarium when he was 10 months old while on vacation in Mazatlan, Mexico 2 years ago!!! I was inspired by the fish tank he was looking at in the picture here, so I used my creativity to make this Layout look exactly like a fish tank what do you think!?! I embossed pretty much everything with my cuttlebug, added some stickles, distress inks and used my Peachy Keen stamps on some of the faces.  I used 6 different carts so here is a list:

Plantin Schoolbook-   circle
Zooballo-  title and orange fish
Everyday Paper Dolls-  Purple fish
Create a Critter-  Seahorse, green plant, blue waves (it was a layer to something else that I welded together to make one long 12 inch strip) starfish, sea shell,  and yellow/red/white fish
Life's a Beach-  coppery colored coral reef
A Child's Year-  bubbles

Love those pop dots!
Close up of my Cuttlebugged blinged out butterfly!
Aidan insisted on modeling with my projects in my photo shoot ha ha , so I said sure why not, the theme is What "Love" means to me! I did this LO with some very old pics before I had my son....actually these pics were taken at the San Diego Fair 6 years ago. I cut the title from All Mixed UP then I put Martha Stewart Glitter all over. The butterflies are from Walk in My Garden I cut them at several different sizes then embossed some of them with my Cuttlebug and added stickles, bling and ribbon.  I used my funky monkey scissors for the large red background paper and for the green strip by the ribbon. I used my lacey border punch on the white paper. I made my own corner frame thing (can't remember the name) for the pic on the left side by cutting two skinny papers and adding some bling to the middle.  The last and final step was to do a little distressing with my Walnut Stain ink (my Fav!) Please check out Momo's page for some more awesome ideas! Momo's Challenge
