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.

#90 CTMH Damask Divas Clementine Blog Hop

Hi everyone welcome to the Close To My Heart Damask Divas Clementine Blog Hop. If you are here from Cydney Fowler Creations then you are in the right spot. If you just arrived here and would like to start at the beginning please start at Mandy Leahy My Passion for Scrapping.

This blog hop is all about using the very beautiful CTMH Clementine Paper Pack which retails for $9.95 in my CTMH Store you get 12 gorgeous papers total so that's about .80 cents per sheet of paper. There's so many gorgeous papers in this set it was hard to narrow down which one's I would use for my project LOL!

For my project I made a Birthday Tag gift set that includes 15 Tags and this 3D box and 3D rose from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge. I stamped the tags using the Glamour Lower Case Alphabets stamp and the Cricut Artiste Birthday Collection Stamp Set, I also used the following CTMH items:

This set is so beautiful and pretty large at 6x6 inches of stamps! I did some stamping and inking and cut the rosette and label using my Artiste Cricut Cartridge.

#87 Angry Birds Party Hats

Hi everyone, I have been pretty busy lately getting ready for my son's 5th birthday party which is not until October 6th I feel like it's right around the corner already. I have tons of project ideas that I will be randomly posting and I also plan on posting pics of the party so you can see everything in action lol!

This year my son is begging me for an Angry Birds Birthday Party that kid is obsessed I still can't believe how popular this cell phone game has gotten Angry Birds are everywhere now!

These hats were pretty easy it only took me about 3 days work on them these were my "side" projects meaning I just work on them whenever I have a little time here and there. Can you believe these hats only costed me about $1 to make woo-hoo score! I love being crafty for my kids parties!

I used my Artiste Cricut Cartridge for the party hats cut at 7 inches along with twine and black feathers pretty simple if you ask me! I was inspired by this PIN.

I am also entering the My Creative Time Pinterest challenge, I was inspired by THIS!

Hi everyone welcome to the Rainbow Party Blog Hop hosted by Candace if you are here from Melissa's Blog then you are in the right spot. This is going to be a fun rainbow party because we are celebrating Candace's daughters birthdays.... happy birthday girls!

For my project I made a rainbow chevron matching gift set. I used my CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge for the treat box and for the banner cut and stamped it using my cricut companion stamp that came with the Artiste cartridge. I stamped the chevrons several times with different inks to make it into a rainbow. I also added some pink twine on the sides of the candy box, I closed the candy box shut using repositional adhesive so it's ready to go when I need a birthday set. I went to so many birthday parties last month that I don't have any more birthday cards on hand can you believe that and here I had so many in my stash lol! I used the chevron stamp from the NEW release It's Your Day stamp set from the CTMH Campaign we have going on right now you can get this stamp set for only $5 when you spend $35 in my Close To My Heart store. This set is awesome because it comes with 2- 6x6 stamp sets that are also Cricut Companion Stamps to the Artiste cartridge.... meaning this stamps will fit along perfectly with the images that are on the Artise cart.

#75 Watch me Grow Flower Babies Layout

Good afternoon! I made another 2 page layout for Olivia's baby book using KBD Flower Babies and FRIENDS pattern. I cut everything out in the Sillhouette Studio using my Cameo. I stamped the faces with Peachy Keen Stamps and added twine, brads and Prima flowers. All the patterned paper here is leftovers from my sons baby book I thought the purple paper was way too girly to be in the DCWV baby boy paper stack. I saved it for years because I always knew I would have a little girl some day :)

Be sure to stop by my blog tomorrow for the Rainbow Party Blog Hop!!!

#73, 74 Birthday Purse Set

Hi everyone I hope you all had a great weekend, I sure did I got to go to the beach 2 days in a row! I was pretty happy because I love going to the beach and plus I caught some pretty good waves yesterday on my boogie board! I love boogie boarding especially when I'm really far out in the water and the waves bring me all the way to the sand, it's so fun!

For today's project I made a purse birthday gift set for my mom's b-day coming up using the CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge and this months Stamp of the Month "Baraoque Borders" which you can get for only $5 HERE!!! I also used a pearl from the Opaques Mocha Adhesive Gems and placed velcro on the inside flap of the purse. This purse is really cute because it has an outside pocket and that's where I put some tulle. I stamped the entire outside pocket and the entire card with the Baroque Borders Stamp Set and placed black tulle all over the card. The banner cut is from Artiste along with the coordinating Happy Birthday stamp from the Artiste Collection.

I love this cartridge especially because there are so many stamps that go exactly with the cartridge and you don't have to cut anything out by hand you just use the same measurements that are posted on each stamp set.

Here's the August Stamp Of the Month Baroque Borders stamp set it's a 6in. x 6in. stamp set you can purchase for as low as $5!

#70 Orange themed Layout

Hi everyone! For today's project I made  a layout all about oranges and my hidden talent I found out about last summer...... I can peel an orange in ONE piece woo-hoo!! My son asked me for an orange and I wasn't even thinking about peeling it in one piece until I did! I know it's pretty crazy of me to do all this work on a layout just to capture  that one picture, but hey I have to scrapbook everything that way my future generations know everything about me LOL!

All the cuts here are from the Tutti Frutti Orange pattern from KaDoodle Bug Designs and I used my PKS kit of the month for January for the faces. The font was a free download. I also added Prima flowers, bling, Stickles and buttons.

#68 #69 Close to My Heart Cards

Hi everyone! I feel like it's been awhile since I've posted, I have had such a busy week! I celebrated my 29th birthday, I joined Close To My Heart ,  I just became the newest DT member for KaDoodle Bug Designs , I went to Universal Studios Hollywood, I took my son school shopping he's starting Kindergarten next week! and I went to the beach yesterday to get out of this 108 degree weather!

I got my CTMH Kit and FREE Totebag and let's just say I am VERY impressed with CTMH products! These are very high quality products I think even better then Michaels and other craft stores stuff. It just feels more luxurious lol! It costs $49 to join and be a consultant and you get a beautiful FREE totebag  to carry all your crafty goodies in it and even 12x12 paper and/or a scrapbook album will fit in it. The kit came with so much stuff in it I couldn't believe my eyes, even if you join CTMH just for the $49 kit its totally worth it! You can view it HERE

For this card I used the new Avonlea Kit for the paper, cardstock and stamp sentiment. I also added rick rack ribbon which was from my own stash. If you don't want to buy the who kit you can also purchase the paper pack seperately the stamp set is exclusive and only sold in the kit.

For this card I also used the AVONLEA WORKSHOP ON THE GO KIT the 2 flower stamps that I stamped over the white paper with Slate ink and added crinkle ribbon and a pearl from the Mocha Gems.

I have one more thing to show you guys, I'm so excited I got my Cricut ARTISTE Collection and it came with all this stuff!! Except the stamp set on the top right that is the AUGUST Stamp of the month called Baroque Borders. I LOVE this cart and I LOVE these stamps they are all 6x6 inch stamp sets thats a lot of stamps per set! I also got 3- 8.5x11 inch sets of chipboard that all coordinate with the cart. So do the stamps, thats the main reason I got the cart so I can have dies that go with the stamps,I am very happy with my purchase this was also my birthday present for myself lol perfect timing!
