Butterfly Sucker Holder

Hello Kristi here with another fast, fun & Simple project for you today! This would be cute for Easter baskets, birthday parties..any occasion!

Wild Card Cartridge
New Arrival Cartridge

On page 48 of the wild card Cartridge you will need to cut the card with the blackout feature on at 3 1/4. Do not fold, instead score on 1/4 in on both sides of the fold line. Fold your scores. Next you will need a piece of cardtock 2 3/4 x 1 1/2 you will adhere this to the inside bottom..this helps holds the sucker holder flat.

Now cut another circle card out (still on blackout) at 2 3/4, then cut in half. Cut 1/4 off the bottom of each and adhere to front (you may to cut more off I ended up having to cut a little bit more).

On the new Arrival Cartridge you will need to cut the butterfly out, using the blakout feature.
Use any size you would like (mine was cut at 2 1/2).

I added butterfly with pop dots....
Stamp Sentiment (yes I goofed..I dropped my stamp! oops) LOL
Place sucker inside....i used a glue dot to hold it and close the top.
Add ribbon..and your finished!

Baby Bootie Thank You

Kristi here with a cute and easy thank you for a Baby Shower!
I did this post a little different, I dont have my video camera yet and I thought pictures might help explain this project better! If you have any question just leave it under the comments and I will answer!
Here is the first step!

This don't have to be too perfect its hidden by the top layer!

This next picture shows all the cuts you need to complete the baby bootie
you will also need ribbon and safety pin!
Step to assemble:
Ink Pieces of you prefer.
On your embossed bootie adhere the top and heel
Next on the blackout baby bootie put adhesive on outside edges only, avoiding the middle and the top...remember this bootie is slightly larger so you want the extra to show at the toe part. This will give extra dimension to the bootie.
Tie ribbon around and adhere thank you with a safety pin!

Add M&M's or other candy
So cute!

Have a Great Day!

Cute cards from Stretch Your Imaginations Cartridge

Hello Kristi here...time to dig out those older cartridges you have stuffed in a corner and start using them...Stretch Your Imaginations was one that I had set back because I just didnt use it anymore....well I was looking for a certain cut and dug it then I challenged myself to use this cartridge....Well here is what I made!

The first card was a little tricky, cause unlike the newer cartridges where you cut all the same size for don't on this SYI..So i had to do some guess work but it all worked out good...and I got a cute little birdhouse card!!

The second card, with the Ice Cream Cone was a little easier. I used the card and envelope on the last page and then cut my ice cream cone out...layered..stamped and done!

Hope this inspires you to use your SYI Cartridge!

The popcorn box was cut from TBBM Cartridge, I selected fit to page and it cut the box at 6 1/4. Fold, score and put box together.

The 10 was cut from Sweet Treats at 1 1/2, then cut a shadow at 1 1/2 also.

The flower (flower #3) on the sweetreats cartridge was cut on the shadow/blackout feature at 2 1/2"

I added stickles to the flames of the candles!

Thats it Fast, Simple & Cute!

Hello Kristi here! Some of you may already know from the Cricut Message Board that I am a designer for Weddings With The Cricut. One of my projects was to design something that could be used as a gift. I love simple and quick projects! So this is what I came up with....

I took a cheap dollar 4x6 photo album and took out the cardboard inserts and covered them with paper, front and back. Embellish the cover to your liking (ect..great for baby showers, weddings, parties and more).....Thats it! Fast, Fun, Simple & Easy!
