My Simple Cricut Escapade

My Other Craft Site

First Play with Word Collage Cartridge

My son was terribly sick and still sick as of this day but I'm relieved that he does not vomit anymore and actually eating normally.  He just slept the whole day away on the first inset of flu and only took water all the time.  Fever went down but still coughing like a seal ..... and yesterday he started sneezing and sneezing :(

As a mother, I'm restless when my only child is sick .... always checking on him and that's the main reason why I was not able to post my project on-time.  I had plans of posting it as soon as my son falls asleep at night but I, too, falls asleep (all the time) beside hime and we both would wake up the sun is already shining high and bright.

Anyway, 2 days ago I played with my Word Collage Cricut Cartridge.  Like any of my carts, I also love this one .... so many possibilities, right?  I've seen some projects using vinyl with this cart and that I have to try someday with courage =)

For my first play with this cart, I covered an old 12 x 12 canvas board =)

The sides were accentuated with lavender Stickles as well as the antenna of the word Cricut.  I also adhered a vintage lace from my stash.  Hhhmmmm, I have not decided yet as to whether hang it or just let it stand.  I wonder when will I get to play with this cart again =)

until then......

Shoe Case with Heels

How's your week-end?  Mine was just fine except that both my parents-in-law are sick so the usual Saturday we have with them is cancelled for the meantime until they're both healthy.  I, for one, feels that soon I will be sick but hoping of all hopes that I did not get the virus when I brought my DFIL at the main hospital in an ambulance last week due to influenza.  I was informed by the doctor that I have to observe myself within 14 days and if I'm lucky well and good, right?

Anyway, the sun has been shining really bright here and we are embracing every moment of the day for the past week.  In line with celebrating National Craft Month for the whole month of March, I try my best to create something everyday.  I also vowed that I will create some items using my Cricut Cartridges so I have something to share now since I did play with one of my carts the other day.  Since I only post in this site related to Cricut, one will not be able to see all the creations I made and will be making but anyone is free to visit my general site at SCRAPIHAPILICIOUSME =)

For my project I made a case for the necklace I made for a friend who turned 30.  I finally decided to use my latest acquired cartridge Princess Party =)  When I saw this cart I fell in love with the 3D shoe.  I don't have a daughter but being a shoe lover I knew I have to have the cart!

 I made a cut at 7 1/2 inches and assembled the shoe.  Since I was half awake and half asleep I had no idea how to embellish the shoe.  I didn't want to go overboard coz I want to maintain the elegance and simplicity of the shoe playing on my mind.  In my mind I want to incorporate stamping so I checked my Greeting Farm stamps and took Camille then I took the courage in using my PrismaColor pencils.  I have the big set for about 3 years now and embarrassing  to say it's actually my first time to use it.  I was apprehensive to use it but there's always a first time.  I believe I will use it more for now instead of my Copics - my coloring is kind'a rusty now, that's why.  Overall I'm happy the way it turned out but as I've said I will practice more coz it could have been better.

Now for the shoe itself, I embellished it with flower then attached a brad.  From there, I added crystals and wrapped around a lace.  The heel part is the coolest coz that's where I attached the stamped image (as shown above) and added few crystal beads.  Oh it didn't end there coz something is missing from the shoe itself...I felt that it was naked so thanks to Ellen Hutson who once shared a pattern for shoe lining in one of the shoes she created.

 The tag was made by using Just Rite stamp : From My Kitchen Set then punched scallop using Stampin' Up then layered with another punched scallop.

That's the birthday girl when we had a simple gathering at her place last Saturday =)  The pictures are blurred coz I was already drunk =)  Oh she actually wore the necklace this day at work and I was so happy to see that she truly appreciate my handmade gift =)

Happy crafting everyone!

until then......
