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.

#174-177 Butterfly Birthday Blog Hop

Blog Hop

Hi everyone welcome to my Butterfly Birthday Blog Hop hosted by me in honor of my 28th Birthday which is on Sunday July 31st! I thought it would be a good idea to make a butterfly themed birthday party in real life and a virtual b-day party! I made all of the decorations for my party at my house which is also today!!  I asked everyone on my hop to make anything butterfly and birthday themed and some of us will be posting on both days (Sat/Sun) so be sure to come check out the stops again on Sunday. You will have until midnight PST on August 1st to complete the hop, enjoy!

Welcome to my party!!! Here's a sign that I will be hanging on my front door I got the font from designer's Calendar, and sign with butterfies from Lacey Labels. It measures 6x12 inches.
Here's a banner I made for the living room, the shape and butterflies are from Storybook cart, and the font is from Lovely Floral.

Here you can see my black lace ribbon and I embossed with my Paisley and Swiss Dots folder in my Cuttlebug.

\
Ok now you are in my kitchen who's hungry!?! LOL! I made some pop up butterflies for my cabinet doors I cut them from Hannah Montana (Love that cart!)

Close up of the pretty butterfly!

Ok can you guess what these are for.....? I am going to decorate my own cake with paper butterflies! these are also from Hannah Montana!

I purchased this pre-made cake from the grocery store, it's actually really huge! Chocolate and strawberries yum!! I made sure they wrote the sentiment in hot pink to match my theme.

I just grabbed the butterflies and pressed them into the cake and they actually stayed there. My party isn't till this evening so I'll have to see if they will stay in place all day.

Here's a close up of my Cricut butterflies!!


Blog Candy!!!! I am giving away a $20 Gift card to Joann's to use In store or Online at Joanns.com and also a Quirky Quotes stamp set sponsored by Scrappy Moms Stamps!! All you have to do is be a follower and leave a comment here and all blogs and also on my 365 Days of Cricut Facebook Fan Page!! I will select a random winner on August 1st and post it on my Facebook fan page!! Good Luck!



Here's the master hop list incase you get lost:

Hi Sandra, just wanted to let you know that I tried a thousand times to get on Carley's blog to leave a comment but something is wrong!! It will not stay on the page, an error comes up preventing me from looking at her project and from leaving a comment to qualify for the blog candy!!(Carley http://the-real-icarley.blogspot.com/) I will try to get on there before days end! I don;'t want to not qualify!!
