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.

#113 Grad Bash Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Welcome to the Grad Bash Blog Hop hosted by Nadia and Giselle. If you are here from Giselle's blog you are in the right spot. I am so excited to be part of Giselle's exciting Graduation hop. In case you didn't know Giselle just graduated from college that is a major accomplishment, I am so excited for her! Here's a sweet little card I made for her:

For my card I cut the female Cricut bug head with the Car Decals cart and the graduation cap is from A Child's Year. I did a little faux stitching and stamped the sentiment with Pink By Design stamps. I embossed the Kraft paper with a flourish type frame embossing folder and inked it up with my Black Shoot Distress ink.

Blog Candy!! I am giving away 5 of these cute Cricut Bug Head's to one lucky follower (without the graduation cap). I will cut them at 3.5 inches in any 5 colors that you wish. You can choose between male and or female bug head's. I will choose a Random winner on Monday.

NEXT STOP is Kristy

Congrats Giselle!!!!!!!

#108 DDLL Bear Card

Hi everyone today is Design Team day at Digital Delights by Louby Loo and the stamp I used was  this cute bear from the Baking Bears Set. I thought I would try a new technique which is Paper Piecing I have never tried this and I love it! If you are wondering what Paper piecing is I printed this digi stamp on  6 different colors of cardstock and cut each layer out with my scissors and glued all of the pieces together  on the brown bear with my Zig glue pen. I also punched the border with my apron lace punch. I left the sentiment blank that  way I could always go back and stamp any sentiment for whatever occassion I need it for like birthday, just because, thank you, etc. I hope you can come check out the rest of the DT's amazing projects HERE. Have a good night and be sure to stop by my blog tomorrow for an all new project.

P.S. Don't forget to enter the Flaunt It Friday's Cindy Loo Cricut Challenge for a chance to win a Joy's Life Lot's of Pun Stamp set! Only one more day left!

Gif Created on Make A Gif
Hi everyone!!! Welcome Day 2 of the Disney Easter Egg Hop hosted by MONICA and I! This is a hop all about Disney and Easter, and some of us are posting on both days so be sure to check out everyone's amazing projects!

For my project I thought I would honor my all time favorite character....Minnie Mouse! I cut the Mickey head and Minnie Mouse bow with Mickey and Friends cart and cut the same bunny ears that I used for yesterday's mini album project which were from 3 Birds on a Parade cart. I placed the bow in my Xyron sticker machine upside down and poured Martha Stewart Glitter over the top. This is my favorite technique to use when I play with glitter. I did some faux stitching and found some matching ribbon and played around with My Creative Time Stamps to get this "Bunny Crossing" sentiment!

BLOG CANDY!!! I am giving away a set of Peachy Keen Stamps CUTE AND CUDDLY to one lucky follower. To qualify you must be a follower and leave me a comment on both posts, be sure to check out yesterday's mini album project HERE! I will announce a Random winner on Monday.

#103 Disney Easter Egg Hop- Mini Album

Gif Created on Make A Gif

Hi everyone!!! Welcome to the Disney Easter Egg Hop hosted by my sweet, talented and fellow Disney freak like me...... MONICA!! I was so excited when Monica asked me to help Co-Host this fun Hop because she know's how much I love Disney! I would like to thank ELSA for making this super cute hop button, thank you Elsa!

For our Disney Easter Egg Hop our theme was Anything Goes just as long as it's Disney and Easter, pretty cute combo if you ask me! Some of us will be posting on both days SAT/SUN so be sure to stop by again tomorrow.

Now onto my project! I made an Easter mini album for my son Aidan (age 3), he was so happy that I let him pick all of the cuts it's pretty funny that he didn't want Minnie Mouse or Daisy LOL, he chose all of the boys! I made this so I can place just pictures of him and his other little cousins on Easter this Sunday. I wanted it to be an "All Kiddie" mini album I figured that it would be nice for him to look at and see other little kids which are his family.

This is the front cover, I made the entire mini out of one 12x12 sheet of blue textured cardstock. I just played around with the folds and this is what I came out with. I didn't plan on making a mini I actually made a pre-made 2 page layout with these same exact papers and I just didn't have the vision since I normally do not make pre-made LO's. I feel like I need to have my pictures in my hands since I like to crop them a lot. I scored the 12x12 paper at every 3 inches to make 4 sections and scored down the middle at 6 inches. The font is from Robotz cart, and I made my own book binding with a sheet of patterned paper cut at 2x6 inches and folded in half. All papers are from SEI.

Here's what the back and front covers look like. You can also see the bottlecap I made on the left side.


For this bottlecap Idea I orginally saw an epoxy maker at the scrapbook expo in Anaheim and Monica gave me this idea to use Glossy acents instead to save money...thanks Monica!! Well I actually stamped Pluto (my son chose!) and colored him with Bic Markers and placed the paper in the UTEE Melting Pot, then I hammered down and distressed with a Meat mallet!! Yes a kitchen tool! Well I just discovered that I can use that instead of pounding chicken, it has been sitting in my kitchen drawer for years waiting to be used LOL! I added twine behind the front and back covers as a closure and punched a whole in the bottlecap with my Crop a dile.

Here's the first 2 pages all cuts are from Mickey and Friends cart, the bunny ears are from 3 Birds On A Parade, and all stamps are Pink By Design. I also did faux stitching all all pages.

To create a circle opening I just punched a half circle with my 3inch circle punch. For the triangle opening I just folded over the paper.


I cut these tags from Sweet Treats and added some Spring looking ribbon. This is where I will place the photos and I also have the option of placing anywhere from 4 to 12 wallet sized photo's in this mini if I use all empty spaces.

BLOG CANDY!!! I am giving away a set of Peachy Keen Stamps CUTE AND CUDDLY to one lucky follower. To qualify you must be a follower and leave me a comment on both posts, be sure to check out my new Disney project tomorrow! I will announce a Random winner on Monday.

#102 Cat Tag for Flaunt It Friday's



Hi everyone today is a brand new challenge over at my other blog Flaunt It Friday's and this week we are flaunting our Cindy Loo Cricut carts and the theme is easy...."Anything Goes"! For my project I made another tag for my collection, lately I have been making a lot of vintage tags because I have a secret shh.....I am making a tag mini album it's a work in progress so that means if I have any extra time I squeeze in a tag or two LOL! I think I may go up to 20 pages of tags and place photo's behind every tag. I will post pics of the completed project.

For my tag I cut the cat from Cindy Loo, stamped the face with Peachy Keen Stamps, placed Stickles on the cat's face, stamped the frame and stamped the sentiment with KinderStampO stamps, and added more Stickles on the fram. I also added some pretty pearls, Glimmer Mist and Distress ink. It's kinda neat to see how you can alter a plain tan tag into something like this!

Please be sure to enter your Cindy Loo project HERE, you have one week to enter the challenge

#101 Peachy Keen Guest Designer Day 5 /Mini Album

***Click HERE for the ROYAL DIGI EASTER HOP***

***Click HERE for my FIF DT project***

Hi everyone is Sandra here and I am so sad to announce that today is my last day as a Guest Designer for Peachy Keen Stamps, I am so glad that I was able to play along with the rest of the DT for their Let's Face It Friday Challenge. Since the theme for this week is "Mother's Day" I decided to make a mini album out of one single 12x12 piece of paper!! Woo-hoo I am so excited just looking at this mini it opens up like magic LOL!
Here's the front cover all flowers in this mini are from the Forever Young cart. I created my own sentiment with  KinderStampO stamps. I was originally going to make this to give to my mom for Mother's Day but I decided it was too cute to give away and instead I am going to put pictures of my son Aidan and I on Mother's Day. I know I am horrible, but hey I'm a mom too! I will probably make my mom a fancy/vintage themed one. All papers where from American Crafts and all faces where from  my all time favorite PK 640 Princess Face Assortment. I added ric rack under the flowers as stems and adhered a blue strip of ribbon to the back cover so it can tie together to close.

I double layered the flowers with pop dots for dimension.

This is what the book looks like when you first open it. For all of the pages I went with the same color scheme that was on my patterend paper. I added ribbon to all Kraft paper photo mats and some of the same flowers just alternated the colors. I wrote the sizes that way I can just add the pictures after Mother's Day. I stamped all sentiments with My Creative Time stamps and also stamped the little frames from a Martha Stewart stamp set.

*Note* You can zoom in the picture by clicking on it

Here's how the next part looks after opening the page that was pictured above this one. I love this paper set especially the pink wood grain paper and the bird paper.

On the back cover I stamped both flourishes and also you can see where I adhered the ribbon under the yellow paper which will wrap around to the fron to tie a bow.The final size of this mini is 6x6 with a total of 6 pages for decorating.



Now for some blog candy! I am giving away one PK 757-Wide Eyed Bushy Tailed Assortment all you have to do is leave me a comment , you do not have to be a follower but I would love it if you did! I will chose a Random winner on Saturday April 16th.

The frog/toad is from the Dylan Accessories Set and the sentiment is Have A Toadally Great Day Sentiment. I colored the frog with Prismacolor pencils, embossed the background with my Cuttlebug. The 3 flowers on the bottom left are Prima, and the large flower on top is actually a silk flower from a bouqet of flowers from the $1 store!

#97 Peachy Keen Guest Designer Week 14 Day 3

Hi everyone it's Sandra here again from 365 Days of Cricut on Day 3 of my Peachy Keen Stamps Guest Designer week. For my 3rd project I decided to make an Easter basket for my son Aidan (age 3),  a treat bag filled with jelly beans which I will be making more to hand out to the adults, and some very personalized eggs for Easter Egg Hunting.

Here's Aidan Easter basket he's all ready to go Easter egg hunting except he has his holiday's confused he kept saying "Happy Halloween!" LOL! When I showed him his basket.

First I added some blue/green polka dot paper I adhered with my ATG gun. FYI first I tried using a thicker cardstock/patterened paper and it did not work well, and also I tried a liquid glue and that didn't work well either. I found out that thin paper and an ATG adhesive worked best for this project. Next step cut the bunny head's from EASTER 2010 seasonal cart and stamp the faces with the new release stamps PK -441 Cute and Cuddly and I stamped the little green flowers with PK 530 Simple Simons Face Assortment.

Here's a little side view and here you can see where I added an orange border strip with my scallop punch. For the basket I used 6 bunny heads and 6 green flowers.

Here's a picture of some of the eggs. My son's favorite eggs where the Monster eggs and the bubbly tongue face from Happy New Year! Here's a list of the stamps I used for the eggs  PK 690 Make A Monster Face Assortment, PK 471 Happy New Year 1 1/8, PK 756 Critter Faces Set Extra Large, PK 757 Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed Assortment. I stamped the faces with StazOn ink and colored some of them with Bic markers. It was also challenging to stamp the faces on the eggs but very worth it! Some of them did smudge the trick is to roll the stamp from left to right and do it very slowly! The easiest one's to stamp where the bird one's and monster ones.

For the Silly Rabbit treat bag I used a jewelery bag from Michael's it's about 3x4 and used my Martha Stewart punch and added my extra bunny I originally cut for the basket, I love how it all worked out eventhough I wasn't planning on making a treat bag LOL! I also stamped this guy's face with PK 441 Cute and Cuddly 1 1/8. P.S. it was so hard not to eat some of these yummy Starburst jelly beans, I am warning you stay away they are so addicting!

Here's what I orginally started out with a plain Easter basket AKA Easter "bucket" from Walmart and it was only $1!


Now for some blog candy! I am giving away one PK 757- Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed Assortment all you have to do is leave me a comment , you do not have to be a follower but I would love it if you did! I will chose a Random winner on Saturday April 16th.


Thanks for stopping by I will see you tomorrow!

#96 Peachy Keen Guest Designer Week 14 Day 2

Hi everyone it's Sandra 365 Days of Cricut here again for another awesome day here as a Guest Designer for Peachy Keen Stamps. For my 2nd day I decided to make something that I have been wanting to create for months...an altered food jar! I had it all planned out especially once I saw these awesome mustache stamps I just knew I had to create a salsa jar with a mustache!
For my "Hot Stuff" mustache tomato guy I cut him from Block Party Cricut LITE, stamped the face with 2 different PK-451 Wide Eyed Kids 1 1/8 I used the mad face for the eyes and used a happy one with a tongue for the mouth. For this mustache I used PK-150 Accessories ONE Assortment, I did have to practice stamping the face with the different size mustashes to get it perfect, In the end I think it was worth all of the tries because I love it! I cut the circle for the lid and also the tag from my free Gypsy cart (Tags, Bags, Boxes and More) then I embossed in my Cuttlebug with a Woodgrain embossing folder. The font is from the Birthday Cakes cart, I added ribbon and embroidery floss, the green polka dot paper is actually Christmas paper!

I think these would make a perfect little hostess/party gift or maybe I will make some more and give them away as Father's Day gifts to my dad and grandpa shhh don't tell LOL!

Here's a close up of my hot and spicy tomato guy LOL! 
Now for some blog candy! I am giving away one PK 757- Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed Assortment all you have to do is leave me a comment, you do not have to be a follower but I would love it if you did! I will chose a Random winner on Saturday April 16th.


I hope I inspired you to use your stamps in a different way, see you tomorrow!
Sandra
