Cricut Circle January's Monthly Challenge

The challenge was to scraplift a circle blog project and I scraplifted Jane Eubank’s Trick-or-Treat banner idea. I was also supposed to use 2 products from their sponsors and I used Bazzil cardstock and some of Imaginisce’s bling. I used Mini Monograms for the circles, Once Upon a Princess for the font, and Hannah Montana for the crown, diamond, lips, and stars.

Birthday Challenge

Yesterday was Robyn’s birthday (My Pink Stamper) and she had a challenge to create a birthday project, so I made a card.
I used 3 cartridges: Simply Charmed, Accent Essentials, and Wall Décor and More. The cake came from Simply Charmed, the accents on the cake from Accent Essentials, and the accents around the cake from Wall Décor and More.
I also ordered 8 set of stamps from Robyn and received them in the mail today. I have been wanting to get them and decided to finally spend the money. I can’t wait to start using them!

As you can see, I am posting some projects that I have completed in the past months. My goal is to start posting more frequently because I love to share my creations.

I made a few things for my mentor teacher and my SWAT person (a classmate who we gave gifts/notes to encourage them throughout the semester. On the last day of class, we revealed ourselves.)

For my mentor teacher...
*I bought the apples at Michaels and glued them on ribbon

SWAT person...
I used Mod Podge on every single gift :)

Writing Celebration

Last semester I worked with a 1st grade student by helping him improve his reading and writing and in the end, I helped him publish his own book. He was so proud of it. We had a Writing Celebration for all of the students that my classmates and I worked with and all the students read their stories to the class.

This is his published book :)

I never thought that I would be buying the Sponge Bob cartridge, but I had to because my kid loves him. I gave him a few things to thank him for working with me.

Circle Pal

I made these two cards for my circle pal. I didn’t want to post them up yet until she received her package, but since I had a few problems with the post office (not shipping it to the correct location and not notifying me), I figured that I can share them since she will be getting her package tomorrow I hope.
This is the 1st package she sent me in December.

Drummer Girl

I made this notebook for my cousin who is learning to play the drums.

This was the first time I used the YourStory and the Zutter Dreamkuts Machine to cut the paper for the inside of the notebook. I love it! They are both really easy to use. I put Mod Podge on all the cuts because I don’t want the paper to tear and it also gives it a glossy look.

Circle Weekly Challenge #14: Getting In Shape!

The challenge was to create a project in a shape other than a square or rectangle and include a number somewhere and bling of some kind.

I created a graduation card because a few of my sorority sisters are graduating in May and it's never too late to start on their cards.

Cartridges used: 3 Birds on Parade (bird) and Wild Card (card)
