Blog~iversary Celebration!

Just last April, I started posting on my blog. Who knew it would be so much fun? OK, I have to admit that my friend, Narelle, kept telling me to start a blog and she even did most of the work to get mine started. I just had to make stuff!

So to celebrate the past year and to thank those that follow my blog, I'm having a Blog~iversary Celebration! I'll be giving one lucky follower their choice of any cart available through including the Circle Exclusive carts!

For your chance to win, follow my blog and comment on this post! Want a second chance to win? Pin one of my projects to your Pinterest board and come back and post the link! How about a third chance to win? Comment on one of my projects that are posted {mostly in the Other Crafts forum} on the Cricut MB and come back and post the link! If someone else already posted on a project thread within the past 24 hours, find another project to post on for it to count. And, don't post on the same project more than once.

And, to make it crazier. . .you can post everyday until May 5! Just make sure you only post one general comment on this post, one project pinned and one comment on the Cricut MB one one of my projects posted there in a 24 hour time frame. I will be looking at the dates based on Eastern Time, so adjust for your time zone so your entry isn't disqualified. That means you could post 3 times each day for the 7 days and have 21 chances to win!

Still not crazy enough? If I should hit 600 followers before the end of the celebration, I'll pick TWO winners!

Thanks so much for all the support you have given me and good luck in the celebration! Let's get this party started!!! And, every party needs cake! So I designed this cute little cupcake stand in CCR using Craft Room Basics. Once you cut the two pieces,

you simply score the base between the cutouts, then flip the base over and score down the middle of the cutouts and score along the top edge.
Then, accordian fold the base,
apply adhesive to the top and bottom edges and match of the folds.
Fold the tabs down along the top and apply adhesive, turn it upside down and stick it to the scalloped circle.
Flip it over and place your cupcake {or Cricut Bug} on it's stand!

Tablescapes-Spring and Summer is a new Cricut Project and Events cartridge! It has lots of fun images for decorating your party table. There is a butterfly, bunny, umbrella, bee, bird, start, dragonfly and flower. For each of those icons, there is a napkin ring, favor box, clippie (which can hang on the side of a cup) and a 3D image. There is also a tent style place card, a centerpiece base, a pillow box, a rosette and a scalloped edge cupcake wrapper.

Hello Kitty!

Someone on the Cricut MB requested a Hello Kitty file for a card she was making for a little girl with cancer. My heart was heavy thinking of the child and mother/father/family dealing with her illness, so I made this Hello Kitty in CCR using the free Cricut Craft Room Basics for her. I hope the card lifts the child's spirits and shows the family that others care.

Who Is Hiding In Your Easter Basket?

Here's a cute 3 dimensional card I made using Doodlecharms and Slumber Party. I cut several of the baskets and layered the grass, eggs and bunny on them with pop dots to get a 3D effect.

And here's a little treat box I made using the same bunny from Slumber Party and Plantin.
