Happy Birthday "Western" Banner

I had a customer who came into the store with a picture of a banner she saw somewhere online and wanted to see if we could make something similar. Here is the banner hanging at the customers home (I forgot to take a picture of it before I gave it to her).   I had a heck of a time finding red bandana patterned paper so I bought a fairly inexpensive digital paper pack online (etsy), loaded the jpg of the red bandana on my thumb drive and drove it to Staples to have it printed for $3.20 for 6 8x11 on cardstock. I only ended up sing 5 of the 6 sheets.

Cricut Cartridges used: Create a Critter, George Basic Shapes and Birthday Bash.
Thanks for looking


  1. how cute!! it turned out fabulous :-)

  2. Love the shapes you used for the banner! Great ideas getting the paper digitally and going from there to create what was wanted!

  3. I love it, this came out gorgeous Tee.

  4. This is terrific Tee!! You come up with such creative ideas and execute them so well! I sure wish you lived close so I could go to your classes!
    I LOVE the idea of going to Staples! Once you really do the math it makes sense....I do it for regular print jobs over 15 pages...really saves me money.
    Thanks for sharing sweetie!

Cricut Flower Shoppe - Flowers

For the last several weeks I have been playing with the Flower Shoppe cartridge trying to come up with 10 unique flowers for a class I am doing. I am so happy with the results.

I am writing up directions for each flower and will post later.

Many of you know my Sister-in-Law was recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer. On Facebook someone posted a picture I knew would make a great SVG file so I whipped one up.... You can get the free file by clicking "Here". Would love to see if you make something with it.

3D Teacup - Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2

I am in love with the new Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 cartridge Cricut came out with but wasn't so excited about going out and buying a new housing for my Cricut to score. I remembered someone posting that you can 'flip' an old blade around in the existing housing and use it to do your scoring. Well, I gave it a try and loved the results....

WARNING: Practice with some old paper that is the same weight as you will be using on your project. I had my pressure up to high and my paper ripped.

In the area?? I will be doing a make-n-take this Wednesday, March 21st at Hearts-n-Crafts between 10:30 and 1pm for $5.

Special thanks to Amy from for the inspiration...
