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.

#18 Home Sweet Home Card for my Hubby

Hello everyone I made this card for my hubby's return from Iraq we are just counting down the days just 4 more days! It's been a LONG 5 months. I think he is going to love his card because I made this house look exactly like ours, same color combo I even put the placement of the door nob on the left side lol! The only different about this house is we only have 1 window on the bottom facing the street, but it's pretty close to my house lol!

The house is from the Handy Man Cricut LITE, I stamped the sentiment, and used a EK border punch on Kraft paper. I added blue ribbon on top with some MS Twine. For the house I did a little inking and chalk ink for the windows, and embossed the roof with a Fiskars plate in my Cuttlebug. I am entering in a few challenges:
