It's Design Team Tuesday with Shabby Chic Stamp Co. Today I have a simple card made with the Father's Day set. Isnt' this cute?
I do like this set, although it's a bit early to think about Father's Day Cards. I'm still trying to get to Mother's Day!

Happy Crafting.

The Letter of the Day

Today at My Cricut Craft Room the letter of the day is S. So I made this seascape centerpiece using Life's a Beach.

 My goddaugher is having her first birthday in a few weeks, and the theme is Under the Sea. I think this will go perfectly.
To see more projects that begin with S please visit My Cricut Craft Room. 

Happy Crafting!

May 100 Cartridge Blog Hop

Welcome to Erica's Craft Room
100 Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop

You should have started at  http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/ if not please start at the beginning.We have loads of cute projects for you today!

My project today is a thank you card using Preserves, Sentimentals, and Just Because Cards. 

I used paper from the DCWV Nanna's Nursery stack for this one. The watermelon is cut at 2.5" from Preserves and it takes a while because it has 4 layers. The tag from Sentimentals. I made the white tag inset by cutting the tag 1/2 smallers and then using scissors to trim off one end. The phrase is from Just Because Cards. 
Next you should go to Tiffany's Blog

WYEGW with My Cricut Craft Room

My Cricut Craft Room

It's WYEGW on My Cricut Craft Room again and I have a project for you! Today I have a father's day card that I made using the rectangle feature on Base Camp and a tie from Paper Dolls Dress Up.

I saw an SVG card like this and though, I can do that with my Gypsy.
You can make this using any cartridge that has a rectangle on it. I would try to explain, but I think it would be easier to show you.

This is a screen shot from my Gypsy of the base (blue) part of my card. 

This is the front (striped) part of the card. 

This is the collar and tie. I pop-dotted the collar to give the shirt more dimension. All of these are the same rectangle. I just adjusted the size using my Gypsy and welded them together.

Happy Crafting!

Design Team Tuesday with Shabby Chic Stamp Co.

I love the Build a Bouquet stamp set from Shabby Chic Stamp Co. It is so adorable. And it's perfect for paper piecing! Check out the cute card I made.

Isn't this cute? I used paper from the DCWV Nanna's Nursery stack. Paper Piecing is a great way to use up all your little scraps of paper. Just stamp onto your patterned paper and cut out. No coloring required. 

Happy Crafting!
