Card using Honeycomb paper

I'm loving this Honeycomb paper! I purchased it at a Stamp show in Orlando from a company called Inky Antics. This is my first project using it.
 I printed the black words with my computer before assembling the card, and then cut "SWEET" and "CHERRY" using the Cricut Storybook cartridge. I cut the pattern for the honeycomb cupcake using a cupcake on the From My Kitchen cartridge, then cut the layers in half, traced onto the honeycomb paper, and cut out with scissors.
I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the front, and highlighted some of the cupcakes with Stickles. This font is also from the Cricut Storybook cartridge.

Birthday Card and Gift Card box

I used my Cricut Imagine and the Imagine Buccaneer cartridge to make this birthday card set for my boss. I cut the pirate using the layers feature so his hat, shirt cuffs, pants cuffs and hand with bottle would have some dimension and mounted "Shiver Me Timbers" with pop dots.The bottle and silver bands on the barrel are coated with Diamond Glaze, and the X's and flame on the barrel's wick are highlighted with Stickles. the font is from the Happy Hauntings cartridge. My favorite part is the barrel mounted with an Action Wobble, and boy does it wobble!
I put some party beads in the chest, and will add more once I add a gift card.

July 4 Layout

This is my entry for the Cricut Circle Blog weekly challenge. This week's challenge is to create any type of project showing your patriotic spirit, and include at least 2 Cricut image cuts on the project. Easy - peasy! I used the Stand and Salute cartridge for the banner/border and the fireworks, and A Child's Year for the boy on rocket. The fireworks are covered with glitter glue to add sparkle, and the silver stars are iron-ons from Walmart.

A challenge to myself

I challenged myself to make a scrapbook layout without using any of my Cricut machines, and this is what I made. I think it turned out cute.
All of the paper is from the DCWV Nana's Kids stack. The animal cut-outs attached to the rosettes are cut from a patterned paper in the stack also. I enhanced the monkey and the lion with flocking, and covered the elephant with Diamond Glaze. The used a Martha Stewart PATP border punch set for the decorative edge, and included a space for a little journaling.
