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.

#1 Let's Celebrate Blog Hop

***Please Click HERE to continue the THANK  YOU CARDS BLOG HOP with another Give Away***

Happy New Year everyone!! I am so super excited to be in this amazing hop to celebrate my sister Joanna's 25 birthday and also her one year Blog Anniversary and this is her first time ever hosting a hop all on her own I am very proud of her!  It is also my one year anniversary of blogging but I feel like it doesn't really count since I took a 4 month break from blogging, but I promise I will celebrate in May, because that's when I became fully committed to my blog. Since we are in a brand new year I am going to start my New Year's resolution again and make 365 projects or more in 365 days and I hope you guys will be there to experience all of the fun with me!

If you are here from Ruthie September Ninth then you are in the right spot. If you just started the hope wnd would like to start at the beginning please go to my sister Joanna's blog Scrap- Making. Here is the blog hop lineup:

Joanna http://scrap-making.blogspot.com//
Sandra-http://365daysofcricut.blogspot.com/ THAT'S ME!
Tammy-http://scrappycritters.blogspot.com/ Tammy is NEXT

For my celebration project I decided to make a box set of Birthday Cards for those last minute birthday's that you can have handy. The box is from a cart that I have been wanting forever and I got it for free on my Gypsy!! Yeah!! It's from Tags, bags boxes and more! All of the cuts including the scallop squares, circles, images cards and envelopes are all from the Walmart Lite cart Slumber Party, I LOVE that cart. The cuts are so easy to layer they remind me a lot like Create A Critter layering. Eventhough I don't have a little girl I think I could use a lot of these for other stuff, like boy, baby or even party invites. I think this is my one cart that I got a lot of cuts from right away on the first time using it.
Here is the front of the box, I used the glitter paper from the Spring Glitter Cardstock stack DCVW. I also cut the scallop square with the same paper to match since this is the "Display" card. I added a Prima Flower and a button to the side.

I added a white brad here for decorations. I originally was playing around with it to make some sort of closure but it didn't work out LOL!

Here you can see the transperancy and bling eyes.

This is what it looks like right when you open it.

Here is my first card. The skull , scallop sqaure and card base are all from Slumber Party. I stamped the sentiment and added stickles to the bow.

The present, circle and card base are all from Slumber Party. I stamped the sentiment and wrote "Just For You" on the tag.

Here's the cute little bear it reminds me of the mean Pink Bear from Toy Story 3! The background square is connected to the bear.

Mmmm birthday cupcake! This cupcake is also from Slumber Party.

Here I stamped all of the envelopes. The envelopes are all from Slumber Party.

I adhered my envelope with my ATG gun and it's sticks real good! I put a small piece of  adhesive tape on the flap so all you have to do is peel the blue part off and it sticks. 
Here is what the back of the box looks like along with the 2 brads.

For my blog candy I am Giving away a set of Recollections birthday stamps in honor of my sister Joanna's birthday celebration! To win these stamps all you have to do is BE A FOLLOWER and tell me if you have any big plans in 2011....Crafting Wise. My big plans are to make and POST my projects everyday and try to be on more design teams and try to get published! That is my ultimate Dream!

Here is a Christmas pic of us when we were little ME on the left, Joanna the birthday girl in the middle, and our non-blog sister Patty on the right.

And here is our most recent picture together this was taken at our grandma's house last week on Christmas EVE. Joanna is in the front left, and I'm right next to her. The other 2 are our little sister's Patty and Victoria. My mom had 4 girls and no boys. Go figure....and I get a boy LOL!

Happy happy happy Birthday Joanna! I love you so much and I can't believe my little sister is already a Quarter of a Century! Thank you so much for inspiring me everyday with your amazing talent and letting me come over you house and always giving me a stash of cards that I love to put on display in my scrapbook room! Thank you so much for forcing me against my will to buy a Cricut and a Cuttlebug and to start a blog LOL! J/K! Okay she didn't really force me but she sure sweet talked me into getting one! I hope you guys have a fabulous year in 2011 I really hope all of your wildest dreams come true! Now lets continue the the CELEBRATION by heading over to Tammy Scrappy Critters.

P.S. Pease scroll down for my other hop that I am in called the Thank You Cards Blog Hop

Hi there,
That is a super fun project! My favorite part is the box. I have yet to try to create a box even though I have that cart on my Gypsy too! I have HUGE crafting plans for 2011. I plan on creating and selling more cards, mini albums, sets of cards, gift card holders and coupon books and homemade bath salts and essential oil blends! Phew, my ambitions are high, hopefully my energy will be! LOL
Thanks for the chance to win

I like how you put those pics in of when you were little then all grown up. My crafting plan for the new year has already begun. I'm putting together a huge box of items I can take in hospital with me as I'll be there for a huge part of 2011. There is no better way to heal than through crafting & I intend to do just that. I got a gypsy 1 week before xmas as an early gift & thats going in the box for sure lol. You can reach me on youtube under this name also.

Country Twinkle said...

Wow you will be busy this year. I can't wait to see all the good stuff you make this year.

Shari said...

Cute cards. What a great idea to have on hand for gifts. The cricut and gypsy make it so easy to create a box to fit whatever size card stack you have for gifts.

I know what you mean about being talked into crating by your sister. My sister was the crafter and now that she is gone, I am carrying on.

My NE Goal is to do better at crafting and not spending all my crafting time reading these wonderful blogs.

So cute, love your project! :) I am definitely glad I hopped in this hop, because your blog looks like a fun one to follow. :)
I don't really have any big crafting plans for 2011 since college is getting really intense.. :( But I hope I will manage making cards for friends/family on time for their birthdays/holidays. :)
Happy New Year! :)

Wow, from no blogging for 4 months to 365 projects this year! You know how to make a resolution! LOL. Absolutely love your box! It rocks! I'm so jealous of your Boxes, Bags, and More. I wish they would make them available again. I just don't think I'd use a gypsy enough to make it worth while. At the rate you are going I think you'll hit your goal by next month ;)

What a great box and set of cards! I've had TBBM for a long time - one of the first carts I bought. But have not made the box you show.
My big plans for 2011 - well by twin boys are graduating High School and they will be going to college in the fall and that is big for us. That will round out our three children in college!
thanks Sheryl

Happy Birthday to Joanna!!! :) I love seeing the pictures of you & your 3 sisters! (My great-grandmother had 4 girls, too, and they reminded me of Little Women! She raised them to be such strong, independent girls!)

I love your boxed card set!!! :) And I am so impressed with how often you create & post (I bet posting takes tons of time, too!)-especially with a 2 year old boy (who is a cutie, by the way)!

My goal for 2011 is to join some challenges (once I get my craft room up & running-we recently moved)-one a week (?)! I'll start small (& hopefully work up to your lofy goal in a few years-a new creation every day!)! ;)

Thank you so much for sharing and for the chance to win,

Aye Sandra, I am sorry I am so late in posting a comment - I looked at everyone's posts and between my migraine and my little ones didn't make it through to leave comments for everyone. Your boxed set is such an awesome idea, and I love the Rock Princess skully on the front! So cool! And your pictures were awesome, too! You girls are so lucky to have each other as sisters and share a fun hobby!! :) ~ Angelica
