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.

I made this layout for one "kool" guy my son Aidan using the "Keepin it cool party invite" file from KaDoodlebug which was a past freebie. I altered it a little by downloading the "Kool Beans" font for free on my computer. I then imported the font onto my Silhouette Studio software and made a shadow. The Kool- Aid faces were included in the free font set. I cut ice cubes out using vellum and inking them up. I also found a cup with straw in the Silhouette store and cut that out on clear acetate material from an old Cricut cartridge packaging and inked it with Staz on ink. The honeycomb border is from the Silhouette store too. All the papers are birthday papers from DCWV.

#59 Hollywood Scrapbook Page

Good afternoon! Here's a 2 page layout I made for our Hollywood photos I took last year from our little day trip. The cuts I used here are from Twinkle Toes, Formal Occasion and Lacy Labels Cricut cartridges.  I used PKS stamps on the faces, and Glossy accents on the limo's windows, and also red fuzzy flock on the "red carpet"!

If you are wondering where I got this fabulous title from I can proudly say........ I made it myself!!!! That's right! I downloaded a free font online called "Showtime" and just welded everything together in my Silhouette Studio and also cut a rectangle for the background. I love my Cameo! Ok I love my Cricut too LOL!

Hi everyone! I made this Alvin and the Chipmunks 2 page layout to put my son's pics that I took of him by the movie statues. This movie was actually really cute, I guess I liked it since I used to love the chipmunks as a kid! My son likes Theodore the best but I like Brittany lol!

The chipmunks and crabs are Little Scraps of Heaven svg files and the rest of the cuts are from the Silhouette store, I downloaded this awesome free font online called "Beach Party. I added some raffia to the photo mats and named the ship the "ALOHA" by stamping one of Scrappy Moms Stamps! I used SCAL3 along with my Cameo.

I am entering in a few challenges hopefully I win (keeping my fingers crossed!) This layout was definately made with love for my 4 year old son and he loves it so much! He got made at me because I glued everything to the paper, he was playing with all the cuts like they were paper dolls he was making them surf lol!

Here are the challenges:
scrappy moms stamps- hit the beach
little scraps of heaven - anything goes

BUYER'S BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi everyone, I just wanted to say that I was robbed on the internet by a fellow crafter her name is Erica's Room on (Facebook) and her online store is http://www.shop.ericascraftroom.com/ .

I purchased 3 Cricut Carts from her on May 6th and she never sent them to me. She "Claimed" to have refunded me the money on June 19th, but Paypal said she didn't have money in her bank account.

If this evil internet scammer has ever robbed you now or in the past PLEASE call Paypal to put this Erica's Craft Room out if business, she should not be able get away with this anymore! Paypal's phone number is 1-888-221-1161
