This is a little OWL book I put together at a crop. I still have some more work to do on the inside, but the front is completed. I used several flowers, (the glittery ones came that way!) cutting petals as needed to accommodate the space and a good friend gave me the perfect Eyes. I can't wait to finish this! My plan is to put favorite Bible verses on ea. page to keep in my purse.

JOTS, Plantin' Schoolbook/ Hot Chocolate holder

This is one of those popular Hot Chocolate holders. They are extremely easy to make, but as you see, you can really add some special touches. I stamped the gingerbread image to the cup from JOTS and embellished with Martha Stewart glitter. Also, I embossed the envelope to give it texture. I used my scor-pal to get crisp edges and punched holes at top to thread the ribbon. The tag was from Plantin Schoolbook, using the End Cap feature. I absolutely LOVE that feature!!

JOTS

These were some fun little candy cane- holders for my son's class. I had hoped to post a tutorial but that didn't work :(. These little stockings are from JOTS, cut at 3.5", with the layer and shadow cut at the same size. Some of the bows didn't cut out correctly (not sure why) so I improvised and used the red ribbon you see here. The candy canes were taped to the back with the message: Merry Christmas. Super Simple!

Zoobaloo

Zoobaloo/ Birthday Card Male

This is simply one of my favorite birhtday cards. I had an idea of what I wanted to do, and got pretty close to the result by using a little imagination and tweaking some cuts made with the Cricut and the Zoobaloo cartridge.
These are some very simple party invitations I made for a little girl. I used the teddy bear from the JOTS and the little party hat from Zoobaloo. The "It's a Party" is also a phrase from Zoobaloo. To keep the invitation simple, I put the information on the back, which I printed from my computer in matching colors. The result was very monochromatic, but that was exactly what I was going for.
To add detail I used mini eyelets, and glittery chalking on the bear and a bit of chalking on the lettering.

Christmas mug card

Christmas is the season...

These little cards were fun to make with the cricut. They are easel cards, designed by Deborah March, and instructions can be found at www.splitcoaststampers.com. Thanks to the lovely ladies for sharing their ideas!! I used the JOTS, Doodlecharms, cuttlebug, stickles and scorepal to make these and they are a completed size of 4x4. I didn't find a 4x4 envie on the cricut, so I made one slightly bigger. TFL!!
