clic on pic to enlarge
Here's my mini version of the Christmas crackers. I made these for work and took them in yesterday.
Everyone loved them. I got the file from Lettering Delights (its the 2-pc file) and used my Stampn Up designers series paper.
I filled them with 4 Hershey kisses.  (I made 45, they're double stacked )

Christmas Crackers

I've been pretty busy with family/work...don't have time to shop like usual...What to do? Crackers...LOL..
This year my family will have a cracker to open and find money to do their own shopping...ROTFLOL!!!
I got the file from Lettering Delights and found some Xmas papers and twine. I just LOVE how these came out....I'm going to make a smaller version about (50) and take to work Christmas Eve (day) for my coworkers and fill them with "hugs/kisses". I've already got the smaller version cut...just need to put them together....These are so QUICK and EASY to make!! I'll post a pic when their done.

Here's my Christmas cards. They'll go in the mail tomorrow. YIPPIE!!!
I used the cricut cart Teddy Bear Parade and cut at 3.75".
I flocked the white "fur" and used glossy accents on the belt and boots.
Embossed the background with Snowflakes folder and added red stickles to the present.
Ho Ho Ho letters are from Plantin Schoolbook cut at .75"
The inside was done on the Silhouette. I used "Plaid" font. Isn't it PRETTY!!!

Christmas Gifts

WOWZA!!! My Christmas gifts for my family came out GORGEOUS!!!  LOL!! I forget how much FUN vinyl can be. I already had the 6x6 tiles (previous bathroom redo) and I got all the designs from the silhouette store (Christmas star, Nativity Wise men and Wise men still seek him). I thought it looked better with a frame so I made a 5.5" outer square and then a 5.04" inner square. The camel is 1.25w x 1.29h, 1st wise man(near camel) is .67w x 1.15h, 2nd wise man is  .56w x 1.07h and 3rd wise man is .53w x .74h. The star is 1.01w x 1.60h and the words are 4.20w x 1.03h.  I welded the star and nativity men to the inner square. I thought it would be a lot easier to apply this way and it was...LOL.... Just look at the details on the wise men and camel....I'm IMPRESSED!!!! Now all I have to do is go find some picture stands and get these ready to mail next week. I made 12 of these and can't wait for my families response......

Birthday cards for my SIL and Niece. I used Teddy Bear Parade and cut at 3.50".
The Queen is for my SIL and I added stickles and glossy accents (on the black heart to make it look like a black onyx). The banner and the inside was done on the silhouette.

This is for my niece. She turned 33 yrs old. LOL..I forgot to take a pic of the inside...it said Hold on to your youth and have a youthful birthday...

Cricut cartridge organization

clic on pics to enlarge
YAHOO!!! Found it!!! I've seen this on youtube videos and on some blogs....they said they found them at Big Lots but I couldn't find them. Anyway today I was shopping online at Kmart and LOOK! what I found!!!!! PERFECT STORAGE!!!!!! and it was available for same day pick up. So within 2 hours picked it up and came home and within an hour I had it put together. I went to work and when I came home I alphabetically put all my cricut carts in it.  PRETTY HUH??? Its PERFECT!! OOPPSS NOT!!!!
It says it'll hold 144 DVD's  so I divided that by 2 and got 72 OK I have 56 carts thats perfect.....aaarrrgghh NEXT TIME divide by 3 and allow some room....it only holds 56 carts!!! I miss counted my carts I have 57...ROTFLOL!!! I'm not about to break it all down and take it back. I'll see if one of my boys wants it in the future...LOL....its OK for now....I don't plan on buying anymore carts for now and I'll just lay the one on top. It sure is nice though, I love how it spins and all my carts are alphabetically organized.
If anyone is interested its the Typhoon Multimedia storage tower Model # 82635716, Kmart item # 018W01115364001. its really nice and sturdy and not that hard to put together. IT ONLY HOLDS 56 CRICUT CARTRIDGES
(remember..I moved my craftroom AGAIN...I dont have a door, so I lost the behind the door storage shelves)
