3-D Heart Box

**Update on 1/9/12 to include a video** I have seen so many beautiful 3-D SVG projects online lately, bought many of them but found I needed to get back to my roots of using my collection of cricut cartridges more often. This heart is my "prototype" for a class I want to do for February. Maybe, I will make a video on how to make it as well 

Cricut Cuts: Heart from page 119 Basic George
Cut two at 7 1/2, one at 6 1/2 and 1 at 6 1/4
You also need two strips at 12 x 2 1/2 and 12 x 1 1/2

Leave me some love!!

Happy Birthday Roxy - Hello Kitty Cake

My beautiful sister-in-law, Roxann, gave me the honor of making the cake for her birthday. Her request was Hello Kitty with animal print or damask and of course red velvet. I used my Cricut Cake and Wilton's Sugar Sheets to cut out Hello Kitty - I loved how it turned out, however, was a little sad to cut it. So, I made a custom cake box that she could keep after the cake was gone.

Snow People Cookie Box (Snowmen just didnt seem to be PC)

Raider Cake - Really Randy?

I really got a lot of slack from my Facebook friends that this cake was Raider - but it was Randy's birthday and his request. This cake turned out much better than I expected.

I had a customer ask me to make a Scarecrow using the Shopping Bag on TBBC cartridge. This is what I came up with - everyone loved it! Another sold out successful class. Eyes, nose, cheeks and flower are from Plantin Schoolbook.

Mini Monsters Door Hanger

I saw a door hanger like this someone online (sorry I can't give you credit for the inspiration). I made the sample while at the store where I volunteer and before the end of the night I had sold 24 kits, all I had paper for. So, instead of ending it there - I grabbed different paper and sold another 24. I am so blessed to have such amazing customers.

Do Not Enter - Okay, you can come in and do this project.

Join me this Wednesday for another session of Cricut Tips with Tee and make this door hanger. Just $5 - bring your 12x12 cricut mat and basic tool kit!

3-D Daisy on Plantin Schookbook - Yup!

I cut the flower out of Paisley (page 41) at 3.5" three times. I used a tooth pick to score the petals. The center of the flower was cut at 1.5, 1.25 and 1" and curled with a tooth pick. I love how this turned out.

Jay's 3rd Birthday - Pirate Cake

My niece Samara asked if I could make a Pirate cake for my great nephew, Jayden, who is turning three today. The cake is coconut with fresh pineapple filing.

I cut the Pirate using my Cricut Cake and Indie Art. The boat was cut by hand. This was my first time using Duff fondant. The red and black were very nice to work with but the white was almost translucent. I added brilliant white gel color get the white you see here.

I love how it turned out and so did the birthday boy. At the end of the day, that's all that matters.

Hello Kitty Card Class

Ok - I promised to post a picture of the Hello Kitty Cards. Everything is cut out using the Hello Kitty Cricut Cart and Doodlebug papers

Pokemon made with Wilton Sugar Sheets

This past weekend was my nephew's 8th birthday and I had the pleasure of making his cake. Wilton had just come out with a new product called Sugar Sheets and I couldn't wait to try them with my Cricut. The blue is marshmallow fondant as are the stars. Everything else was cut using Wilton's Sugar Sheets.
