Braided Headband

This is an idea I got from my friend. She found it on You Seriously Made That! It's a really cute idea and this time I just braided instead of crocheting it. Next time though I think I am going to bust out with the hook needle and do it that way. I found braiding it took a lot of effort to make sure all the strands came out even, and as you can tell I have some braided that ended up skinnier that some of the others. But it was fairly easy to make, full instructions can be found on the link above.

Baby Shower Card

Well another baby is on the way and today is the shower. My mom asked me to make a card to go with her gift so this is what I came up with; I used my Life's a Party cartridge and I am not sure who the paper is by. This is some really old paper I got back when I was in high school. The sentiment is just one I printed off of the computer because I don't have any sentiment stamps. If anyone would like to donate to my cause I am a willing recipient!! But on to the card, this is for a little boy but I am sure it would be just as adorable in pink for a little girl.

Cricut 5th Birthday Contest

Well I didn't win but here our my entries for the Cricut Contest that they had on Facebook. The rules were that you had to make a 12x12 scrapbook page that were themed birthday. I did add a little more to the girlie layout before I submitted but I forgot to get updated pictures. I tried to submit a variety so this is what I came up with.

Cardboard Boats

I have been working on this page for a while. Well not really working, I put together an idea for it right after I got my Gypsy in October and just never did anything with it. I used Stamped for the lettering, Paper doll dress up for the boat, and my Gypsy to cut the year into it. I need to get a few more pages together so I can use my YourStory to bind them all together.

Magnetic Picture Board

Well it has been quite sometime since I put anything up on here. I have a few projects in the works and have completed a few this week that I will be sharing.
I just put the finishing touches on this magnetic board that I bought as a plain frame and sheet of metal. The saying is a quote from Albert Einstein. The flowers are the same as the ones that I made in a previous post but I just used these to accent, rather than as a hair bow. I think it turned out pretty nicely and I will be hanging it up tomorrow, then I need to start working on the magnets to go on it.
I used my Cricut with vinyl for the lettering and plain black paint and I finished it off with some mod podge to give it a glossy look. (Sorry about the blue glare in the picture there was a computer on right across from the table I set up for pictures on)
