Cricut Vinyl Project: Baby Nursery Wall Hanging

I wanted to share a project that I created and completed this week for my baby nursery. I have been wanted to put a quote on the wall above the crib and I finally broke down and did it. I created it using my Gypsy, my Cricut Expression, a 12x24 mat, and the Cursive 101 cartridge. I cut the font at 2.5 inching and I also used the welding feature to combine the letters into full words. It ended up being quite simple and took just a few hours, start to finish. I also used the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge for the two elephants at the bottom of the quote and the Storybook cartridge for the accent at the top of the quote. I hope you enjoy!

Throwback Thursday w/ Emma - Week 3

This is my entry for Emma's third Throwback Thursday Challenge! She has made these challenges so much fun because you get to use some of the older cartridge that sometimes can be overlooked. This week's challenge was to use the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I still love this cartridge!

Since I am expecting my first child in August, I thought I would use one of the cute baby cuts from PDDU to create a card. I am expecting a boy, so I used blue, orange, brown, and green. I thought it turned out cute! I hope you enjoy!

Baby Shower Invitations!

My first baby shower is coming up next weekend and I just realized that I never posted the invitations that I made for the shower. (Yes, I made my own invitations for my own shower) My sister thought I was crazy, but I love doing this kind of stuff. My shower theme goes along with my nursery theme, which is jungle, so I incorporated the cute monkey from the Create-a-Critter cartridge into the invitation. I also used this super cute paper pack I found at Hobby Lobby a few months ago called, "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Boy". I love this paper!!!! There is also a pack called "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Girl" and it is just as adorable.

Here is one version of the invitation. I actually used six different backgrounds from the paper pack to make 42 invitations. Tell me what you think!!

Throwback Thursday with Emma!

Here is my entry for Emma's first Throwback Thursday Challenge!
I thought the Create a Critter beaver turned out great with my new Peachy Keen Stamps Critter Face. I love it! I used the new hide/contour feature on my Gypsy to hide the original beaver face so I could stamp the super cute beaver face! I hope you enjoy!
