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.

#38 You Say It's Your Birthday BLOG HOP

Blog Hop

Welcome to the You Say IT's Your Birthday Blog Hop hosted by Erika CRICUT LOVE. If you just arrived here from Janis- http://www.pausedreamenjoy.blogspot.com/ then you are in the right spot. If not then you can start from the beginning at http://www.cricutlove1.blogspot.com/ . Erika asked us all to make a Beatles inspired birthday card for her daughter Ashley's 11th Birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ASHLEY!!!!!!! Here's a list of the Grand Prizes that Erika is giving away...

A simply Charmed Cartridge- sponsored by Cricutmachine.com
Love stamp set- sponsored by Lauren from 40:31 creations {one of her new sets!}
Wide eyed kids face assortment -sponsored by peachy keen stamps
Entire February release of digi stamps- sponsored by Kich-N- Bleus

The song I chose is "DIG A PONY" and you can listen to it here:

I created the base of the card from A Child's Year, the rectangle shapes are from Sweet Treats, and the pony is from the Walmart Cricut LITE- Four Legged Friends, this is actually my first time using this cart =) I stamped the eyes with PKS Princess Faces. I have a Martha Stewart alphabet punch that I got from Michael's and that's where I got the sentiment from. The letters I teeny tiny, so I adhered those with a glue pen since they got lost in my Xyron sticker machine.
