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.

#106 Getting a Pedicure Layout

Hi guys! I made a layout of me getting a pedicure..... me time ahhhhh! I got the nail polish, candles and spa girl using the Day at The Spa Pattern sold by KaDoodle Bug Designs original artwork of Kristi W. Designs. I love this set there's so many other things that come with this set!  The face stamp is PKS Princess Faces. I added stickles to the bubbles, and crackle accents to the nail polish by accident... I thought it was glossy accents oh well lol! I added buttons and ribbon, and also used 2 different letter sticker sets from American Crafts. The paper is Garden Party from DCWV.

I am entering this layout at Scrapping Everyday Miracles- sketch and mixed alphabet challenge

#95 Chocolate Blog Hop/ Artiste Candy Bag

Next to diamonds, chocolate is a girl's best friend and in some cases it may even rank higher than diamonds. This hop takes some neat approaches to chocolate so I hope you can take the time to hop through and see how these crafters expressed their love of chocolate.
You will start at Lorby's World (http://lorbysworld.blogspot.com) but make sure you make it all the way to the end because Tee at One Scrap at a Time is giving away two files from The Cutting Cafe (http://thecuttingcafe.typepad.com/the_cutting_cafe/) to one lucky winner. Tee will have all the details on how to sign up for the drawing when you arrive at her blog.

So get your box of hidden chocolate and enjoy the hop...

I made a Halloween candy bag to hang on the doors inside my house for my Halloween party I plan on having, that way my guests can go "Trick or Treating" LOL  I'm going to make them work for that chocolate! The cone shaped bag and flower are both from the CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge from my Close To My Heart Store.

#94 Artiste Angry Birds Boxes

Hi everyone! I was pretty busy this weekend making my son's Angry Birds Party Boxes. I made everything using my Artiste Cricut Cartridge including the Angry Birds Face! I used 4 circles, lower case "v" and also a diamond shape to create the beak. I outlined everything using a thick chisel point marker to give it an "Angry" look. I cut everything out on red poster board from the Dollar Tree Store I used a 12x24 Cricut Mat to cut everything out fast. Each poster board was 22x28 inches so I was able to get 4 Angry Birds Treat Boxes from just ONE poster board! I also have some leftover poster board that I will be making my party invites out of.

If you would like to create these Angry Birds Treat Boxes CLICK HERE to Purchase ARTISTE from my Close To My Heart STORE!!

Be sure to check back later for my 1st EVER YOUTUBE VIDEO!

#93 My New School Layout

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend, I was up late last night creating this masterpiece for my son's Kindergarten scrapbook album. The reason why I put "My New School" as the title was because I will be putting pics on here of his Kindergarten orientation I plan on making a separate one for his actual first day of school. 

I used all of the die cuts from the Original Artwork of Kristi W. Designs now sold at the KaDoodle Bug Designs Store and this set is called Back To School Mice, I stamped their faces with Peachy Keen Stamps Wide-Eyed and Bushy Tailed Assortment. I also inked the edges and added blue twine to all the photo mats.

#92 Artiste Halloween Box and Winner

Hi everyone!!! For today's project I made something scary for my 4 year old son who is obsessed with playing with these gross Halloween eyes I got from the $1 store LOL! He lines up the eyes and counts them, and then he puts them by his eyes, he comes home from school and said "I want to play with my eyes!"  LMBO it's really funny! I got these eyes so I could do a Halloween D.I.Y. project but Aidan hijacked them!

I cut the box out using my Artiste Cricut Cartridge and the little Scream killer is from the very new very ADORABLE  Trick Or Treat LITE Cricut Cartridge, this one is so fun and goes perfect with Artiste! I am so glad I got the Cricut Expression 2 because look at this little guy he's only 2 inches tall and no rips or tears! I used Crafty Sprouts TOTALLY WITCHIN" stamp set for the sentiment.

Time for the Winner of my August Blog Candy!!!!

Congrats to melllisssa you won my August GIVEAWAY please contact me at critterbugg365@gmail.com
