For Mom Gift Jar

I love flowers!  All colors, shapes, kinds...I just love flowers.  That is why I have tons of flower beds around my yard...I just hate weeding them!!

This little jar was made with the new Layered Flower cut file from SVG Cutting Files.  This will be in the store on Friday so make sure to pick it up!

I did cut a few more layers (4 to be exact) and made them different sizes to get the look I wanted.  I also put foam tape in between each layer.

I did two different ones, the first one with the hammer sticking out of the bag as shown above.  The second one with the hammer completely in the bag as shown in the one below.  Which way do you like it better?

The sentiment is from the Super Hero stamp set from Jaded Blossom.

The tag is 4.5" high and Thor was cut at 3.4" high.

Gift Box

Here is another fun little box I made from the Cricut Make it Now project center.  The paper is all American Crafts.

I love the tiny tag.

The little covering of the tag is so delicate and cut so perfectly, it just slides on the tag.

S'more Box

So since PC gave us an additional 2 weeks of free access to the images, I made a few more things.  This fun box is from the Make it now projects section.  My littles love to make s'mores...something about sweet gooey goodness and fire.  Doesn't get any better than that!

Flip Flop Card

It's that time again, what time you ask?  Time for another monthly challenge over at SVG Cutting Files!!  The theme this month is to make a summer card.  What says summer better than flip flops?  Well maybe a couple of things but flip flops are definitely a summer staple.  I made this card with the Summer Kawaii Clothing cut file from SVG Cutting Files get it here .  Where is the Kawaii face you ask?  Well I sized these down to 1.1" so the face was WAY to small so I removed it and just did the flip flops.  I also didn't use the base of the flip flops so they were just 2 pieces for each one, so quick and easy to make.  Make sure to join us this month with a fun summer card!!

I also used Metal Dies from My Favorite Things for the borders and center cuts, LOVE these!

Hello Card

I guess I am a little out of it lately...I had not heard of the new Minc machine by Heidi Swapp.  It is a foil applicator, so you print something off with a printer and then lay foil over it and run it through the Minc machine and it attaches the foil to the printed part.  So coo!  I know it is hard to tell from the photo but the hello is gold foil and it looks awesome!  I don't have this machine I just made this at one of my local stores.  I am thinking about it though!!

Cut Out Box

I love the cut outs on this little box, I think they are so pretty!  This is from the Cricut project center, I  know...another one?!  I told you I really took advantage of the free two week period.

Bee Box

This was my first print and cut with the Cricut Explore...let's just say something that should have taken minutes took half a day!!!  Cricut print and cut doesn't work with Safari is the bottom line, I really wish PC would get tech people that knew what they were talking about but that's a whole other story.
This fun box was cut with the Explore and then the Bee was print and cut and added with foam tape.  Super fun box!
