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.

#8 Cars Coloring Book

Hi everyone I hope you are having a fun weekend so far. Yesterday my son and I made our first Cricut Craft together I decided to make him a coloring book with my Cricut markers and cereal box chipboard. I pulled out all of my Disney and Licensed carts and also Boys Will Be Boys cart and let him pick which one he wanted and he chose the Cars hanbook! It was so funny because he didn't want the Boys Will Be Boys cart because the handbook wasn't all bright and colorful like the rest of them LOL! My 3 year old son was so excited to have his own little book he actually colored all 8 of his pages before I could put the entire book together, Aidan loves his Cars book and carries it around everywhere.

Onto my project.....I used my Cricut Markers to draw 8 different designs AKA 8 coloring pages and I had my Cricut draw them on basic computer paper. I cut cereal box chipboard and also the coloring pages to 6x9 inches. I cut a big Lighting McQueen for the front cover and added patterend paper and ribbon to bing the book together. I am also entering into Paula's challenge at MORE THAN FAVORS color challenge which is to use Turquoise, Red & White....some of my favorite colors to scrap with!

I love that you two did this project together! I can't wait to have kids and crafting buddies! I bought this cartridge because my big boy (my fiance) loves the movie Cars lol. Is your sin excited about Cars 2 coming out soon? I have yet to cut anything out with it but I have caught him flipping through the booklet a couple times :)

I love this!! I have been thinking the last couple of days of doing the same thing with my Toy Story cartridge for my son. I wasn't sure if it would work the way I was thinking so I'm glad to see this!!
