Glass Etching

Hi Everyone, these are some candle holders I made to go with the wedding gift in yesterdays post.
I managed to find a set of three candles, I etched a C for the couples last name in the large candle holder and an R and D in the smaller holders.  The candles that came with the set are the brides colours for the wedding.
I'm sorry the picture is not the best, but I could not get away from the glare.

Wedding Frame

Here is a frame I made.  I used Regal font, and a tutorial I found on Pinterest about creating split letters.
I used SCAL2, Cricut Expression, Cricut Imagine, and printable vinyl, regular vinyl.

My Fingers

I was doing so well at the start of the year posting the projects I made.  In August I dropped the ball.  I do have photos of the things I have made and will post them later this month.
I am going to a crop at the end of this month and I have been busy getting my stuff together for it.  I always do this really early.  I find that when I do it early I will start with about 10 bags of things then work my way down to 5 as I look it over and think "I won't use this".  I'm interest in your comments about how you get ready for a crop.

Anyway here is a project I made tonight.  It is for my neighbor's daughter. I used SCAL2 and my Expression machine.  Once my camera charges I will post a picture of the card I made to go with this.  (by the way its wall art for the wall over the babies crib.

baby gift

So today is the final day for one of the girls in my office, she is going on maternity leave at the end of day today.  Yesterday we had a luncheon for her.  Here is the gift I made.  There are 12 onsies numbered one through twelve, they are for having her picture taken.  I made these with my cricut imagine, and my expression.  I would have done them all on the imagine but I was having trouble aligning the print and cut feature, so I just printed the paper on the imagine and cut with the expression.

Wedding Card with Envelope

Here is a wedding card and envelope I made for my co-worker.  She is going to a wedding next week, the brides colours are from the Sea Mist family.  The card is inspired by a pinterest card, but I have changed it up to make it my own.
I used the wedding cricut cartridge and the ornamental iron 2 cartridges to make this card.

Very Quick Birthday Card

I told a co-worker I would make him a card for his wife's birthday which is today.  Her favorite colours are pink and purple.  I threw together this card.  Inspired by Pinterest (posted on my Cricut Craft board), but I did not make the flower (to save time).
All paper is Stampin Up.
Ink and Sentiments Stampin Up.

Holy Crap ... You're 50

I saw a card on Pinterest (its posted on my card board).  I just love it and thought it is a great card for someone turning 50.  This card was for a man, so I changed up the Pinterest card.

The supplies that I used to make this card are:

white cardstock from Staples,
dollar store brads,
white cotton material
Old olive card stock
Close to Cocoa cardstock
Choc Chip cardstock and ink.
Woodgrain embossing
Cricut Expression 2 (and one of the font cards on it)
Cricut Imagine for the inside sign.
Sentiment from Stampin Up.
