Welcome 2013

Hi all

Well its been several months since my last blog entry....i often wonder how life goes by so fast...especially when i look at my children!
My eldest just graduated year 7 and is off to High School this coming year. When did he grow up so only felt like yesterday when i took him to kindy for the first day!
Here is the banner i made for his graduation ceremony at school. I used my cricut and i think it was learning curve cartridge for the graduation hats & possibly baby shower or pretty pennants for the banners.

Teachers gifts this year were similar to last years little hampers i made up.  I made them all a glass ornament that i glittered and put their name & No 1 teacher cut from the cricut. I made reindeers with chocolate box and wrapping and candy canes for antlers

This year will bring lots of new adventures our way... I applied for a job at the end of last year....I have been a stay at home mummy for quite awhile but doing so much volunteer work at the school has made me realize how much i want to get back to working in the school & with kids.  Last year I also took over as the coordinator for the schools book has been fun receiving boxes of books and catalogs and seeing the kids get excited when walking into their class with their new books!

This card i made for the kids Dance Teacher for Christmas...i love Twinkle toes cartridge and i added the doodle charms Christmas hat..isn't she cute!! I used Sawyers Place new product called 'rourkes rounds' christmas design.

I made these cute zoo cards for all the kids i had in my group when my sons class went to the zoo...i put all the photos onto a disc for them....It was a hit with the parents that otherwise would not have got photos of their kid enjoying the zoo!

I have just made a banner for my nephews first baby....the mum to be is due in march and she is having her baby shower soon...she loves nemo so i made her a Nemo banner. Here is a photo before i put it all together....she is having a a baby GIRL!!!

will catch up more soon!

Im so excited for her but also relieved it isnt me!!! lol So what has miss pink cricut been cutting out lately?? LOTS!!!! I will start with the baby gifts i made....I used create a critter to cut the cute little lambs for the nappy cradles...which were so super easy to make....i wish i had more friends ready to pop so i can make more!! I used the left over nappies to make a baby cake...i love making these also!! I cut some cute little animals to put around the cake ie monkey koala giraffe ect I also made a quick gift for my aunty for her birthday..i cut out a cupcake wrapper & put in a body puff with a red pompom as a cherry....i also added a soap wrapped in yellow tissue paper & used some Sawyers Place washi tape in Cupcake have a chance of winning a roll if you got to Sawyers Place facebook page & commenting on my picture.
I also decorated some baby onsies by using cricut car decals & some freezer paper...i then ironed it to the onsies & then used fabric paint...for the boy it says i would rather be sleeping & the girl romper is i would rather be shopping!
I also got Dr Checkup cartridge which im so excited to get & had a quick play with the day i got it...i did a layout for the photos i have of my son being in hospital.

christmas in July

Hi ....Its been ages since i have had time to blog!! I made a card for a challenge over at Scrappy go lucky You have to design a christmas card with non traditional christmas cricut i used the Home decor cart with the star flourish....i had a few issues cutting with such thin paper that the flourish tore on some of it so i snipped now its a little different to the design on the cart...but it still looks christmassy to me...i also used the close to my heart stamp sentiment i got when i purchased the art philosophy cart from scrappy go lucky.
its quite a quick & easy card....i like simple! If you want to enter for a chance to win a cricut cartridge...head on over to Scrappy Go Lucky & enter your own card!! Its been quite a cold few months already of winter ...we had a massive storm that blew the kids trampoline onto the pergola roof...if we didnt get it down i think it would have flipped right over & into the yard next door...with that came several power outages & we have all been sick with colds & flu...bring on spring where i can sit in the sun & be warm!
My daughter had a class party which was a 'mad hatter tea party' so i had lots of fun making some tea cups, cupcake toppers & a large mad hatter hat all from the cricut. The tea cups i filled with small chocolates. hope everyone is having a great weekend ♥ from Me

The school holidays are fast approaching which means the easter bunny is on his way!

I have been entering the Scrappy-go-lucky cricut strut your cuts challenges & have been getting easter gifts made

Another easter treat box i made was using my new tags bags boxes & more 2 cartridge!! i also used the scoring tool. I made cute little milk cartons cut at 4 inches also ...i managed to fit 4 mini eggs inside easily..probably could fit upto 5 or 6 even but 4 is plenty for 5 yr olds!

Im cutting out a few little baskets with the new tbbm2 cart so will post about those once im done

Scrappy Go Lucky "strut your cuts" Challenge 3

Well I have had such a busy week & only just got to do the challenge yesterday
Head on over to Scrappy go lucky to see what carts you can use this week ...but hurry as its nearly closed for this week!!

Here is my entry using the only cart i had on the list...B is for Boy

Im slowly getting all my kids baby photos done...i don't think i will ever finish!!
I used some Sawyer's Place Washi tape....i do love that hearts & clouds washi!!

I also made a vinyl sticker to put on my kids files for school...I used some Brushed silver metal look vinyl using rock princess & i think it was basecamp for the words

The weather here in Western Australia has been a bit strange...the other day we had a wild thunderstorm...we were out in it as my kids had swim lessons down at the beach ...but im not insane..i made them stay in the car as the lightning & thunder crashed around us & my husband went to see if they had been cancelled or not...crazily they were not but there was no way i was letting my precious kids out into the weather!!! As it was as we just got up the street the car got pelted with lots of rain & hail & massive flashes of lightning & the wind was very strong!

This pic i took from our car shows how flooded the roads became along with turf farms being underwater in a matter of minutes...the tree shows just how crazy the wind was blowing!

I am going to do some washing today & then maybe get my scrap on!!
The new list is up for the week ahead over at scrappy go im off to read what carts i might have!!
