Fabulous Cricut Friday

What?  Where’s the Fabulous Friday Giveaway? 

No worries….it’s tomorrow, Saturday.  I had to show off my new Cricut skills with my new Cricut……. While the Civil War Game was going on (Oregon Ducks and the Oregon State Beavers………..Go Ducks!!!!  We Won!) I was playing with my new Cricut!  UMPJHWHWLOVSRWE8577828You can enter to win a new Cricut or several other great prizes on Today’s Mama.   Really really amazing prizes……..like one of those bikes with the bucket in the back……yea.  IMG_5654I just had to play with my new Dinosaur Tracks Cartridge.  I made a cute and easy Birthday Banner and darling cupcake picks.  What a fast and simple way to bring more flair to any event.  Cricut has so many themes, I’m sure they have one for just about any event you may be celebrating. (they  have superman and batman coming out soon……you’ll never have to buy party supplies again)  I can’t wait to make a snowflake banner for Christmas!IMG_5653To complete my birthday theme……I love a cute cupcake pick………..I love a cute cupcake……..heck, I love an ugly cupcake…….pick or no pick.   IMG_5660Wouldn’t these little dinosaur picks please any little boy?  I used the Accent Essentials for the flower shape, then just stuck my little dino on.  I love being able to choose what size I wanted the little silhouettes.

Be sure to look at my $5 cake stand I found at a garage sale.  IMG_5659My bloggy partner Cindy with Skip to My Lou is showing off her Cricut skills too.  She told me her idea and I decided to steal it……..she should know that you can’t tell me anything……..if it’s good, I’m takin it……it’s a compliment really.  She said she was doing something with a plate……..IMG_5656

This holiday plate idea.  How simple can you get, but it looks like a million bucks!  I placed a clear glass plate………you can buy these in sets of 12 for like $10 at a craft store…….I used the Cricut cartridge Plantin Schoolbook for the Letter D….because that’s my last name……..placed it on my Gold Chargers I bought at Big Lots a few years ago. 

No fuss table that looks like you fussed over it all day. 

Do you have a Cricut?  I’d love to see your projects.   I’m filling out their wish list card and sending it to my husband.  I need more cartridges.  Have you filled out your Cricut wish list yet?  It’s pretty fun.

 

Be sure to check in tomorrow or my weekly giveaway.  Or visit Today’s Mama and enter hers.

I am trying to get a craft room setup in a little spare bedroom, my cricut is still in the box from last Christmas when my husband gave it to me...I have used it a couple of times but can now have it out ALL THE TIME so it will get lots of use. Thanks for the post, I can't wait to try new things.

Heidi said...

I had the opportunity to craft with a circut at an overnight craft retreat last year. ADDICTING!!I wanted to smuggle it back to my house in my suitcase! SO fun!!

Marnie said...

I've never used one but it looks fun.

SoBella Creations said...

Looks like your having a lot of fun with your new toy.

Nancy said...

I asked for the Cricut for Christmas last year from my husband. He asked me why I wanted a machine that cut paper. Oh honey... didn't get it. I had to explain. Ladies, take note. "When you are doing a project around the house, you go out to the garage to get the tool you need. You like to have it on hand. I would like to have a tool for my projects." Point taken. Got it. Love that man.

Annette said...

Cute Cupcakes! And yay! go ducks!

Bethany said...

Cute projects... it is hard to find Cricut ideas that are not cards or scrapbook pages. I just got one for my birthday last month- here's what I've made so far: http://mypaperpony.blogspot.com/search/label/cricut

Seriously, so much fun!

Summer Rae said...

I have a Cricut too, and absolutely LOVE it! And am a HUGE Ducks fan, if only I could go to Pasedena!

Sarah said...

I just got my cricut, too, and am totally pumped about how cool my crafts are going to look. I wish I'd had that dinosaur cartridge and the cricut a couple weeks back... my son's 4th birthday party was all dinosaurs. I think I might get it anyways, you never know... he might want a repeat theme sometime. :)

Cora said...

I have a Cricut and love it but have not used it a whole lot...I've wasted some paper though! haha....
Love the plate and charger idea!

Peggy said...

I have a Cricut and love it! I love your banner and your charger plates! Cute ideas!

Just say Julie said...

I love my cricuit! I use it for all my classroom bulletin boards and last year made my son's birthday invitations and decorations. I'm totally making the snowflake banner this year!

Colleen @ MuralMaker&More said...

I HAVE to start playing with my Cricut. I've only done 2 things. I had a problem with pressure, ripping paper, when I first started and have shied away from it.
Thanks for inspiration. I gotta give it another whirl.

Sarah said...

I've asked Santa for the Cricut. I can't wait until Christmas to play with it! God's blessings, Sarah :D
