Jen's Birthday Blog Hop

Hi all! Happy Saturday! It's a beautiful day to celebrate a birthday!! Happy, Happy Birthday Jen!!

If you arrived here from Natt at http://www.tinynatt.blogspot.com/ then you are in the right place! If you want to enjoy this hop from the beginning, you can go to Melin's blog at http://www.cookingwithcricut.com/2012/06/jens-birthday-hop-day-1.html.  The theme of today's hop is to celebrate Jen's birthday! Here's a  photo of  invitations I made recently to celebrate my daughter's 6th birthday.  She wanted a Barbie theme so I used the Forever Young cartridge to get the head image and then my Teresa Collins Baby Boutique for the frame.
For this one I also used Forever Young and then baby boutique for the wings.  The white part is where I printed the details.  (I blurred out a few personal items:))

The really cool thing I did with these invitations is printed out my own patterned paper on my Imagine using the Black and White cartridge!  I used pink paper and took the polka dot pattern, along with the animal print and printed it on top of the pink!  I love how it came out!

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Crafting!

CWC Summer BBQ theme Challenge

Hi all!  It's time for another challenge over at Cooking With Cricut.  This week the challenge is Beginning of Summer with a BBQ/Picnic theme.  I came up with a cute scrapbook page, using only my Imagine and my Enjoy the Seasons cartridge.  Even the patterned paper is from this cartridge:-).  I hope you like it!

June Calendar Page

Here is my calendar page for June. For this month I really wanted to incorporate a slide into the page as it seemed like my kids have already been doing a lot of swimming this summer!  I used my Imagine art cartridges for most of this.  The sun and slide came from Enjoy the Seasons and the calendar is from Baby Boutique.  The paper is all DCWV, it was an Ultimate stack I got a while ago and the background paper is Creative Memories Sea Glass.  I cut the banners out by hand and the title was done with the CTMH Typewriter Keys stamp set which is my favorite set for titles right now!

Dad's Day Card

Hi all! Well summer is definitely here!  These last few weeks have been so fun with the kids that I haven't had any time to sit in my craft room and do some crafting.  Luckily, the kids are at VBS mornings this week and I've had some time to finish up Ava's invitations for her birthday along with get some Father's Day cards made.  I saw this adorable card on pinterest the other day from the Papered Cottage and I wanted to make my own version of it.  I started by going to mycutsearch.com and looking up "tie" in the search tool. I found a bunch of options but the one that looked good to me was the one from the Designer's Calendar cartridge.  I didn't have the other carts that some of them came on so this one was it.  I then went to look at some of my scraps for some "manly" colors and this is what I came up with.  The letters stamps are CTMH and the Happy Father's Day is Stampin UP!
I made two versions, one with the hearts and another without...
 ...without
 Both together.
