My inchies and tag were made with doodlecharms.

Here is my LO using tear drop:

Beach Fun By Cpowife

Here is my jar:

Summer Jar By Cpowife

It didn't really come out like I wanted it to. The original plan was to put sand in the bottom and place a candle inside. I got worried that the adhesive might melt or come lose with the heat of the flame though so instead it will be a change jar for my desk.

It was so cool making this with the Cricut. I want to learn more. I have probably done things the hard way but the more I use it the more I like it.

Thanks to Lizzie for the inspiration to pull these photos out of the archive.

Ok, check one more off my list, the inchie.

Can you find it? LOL. I figured I'd put it in a layout so I wouldn't lose it.

Fourth Grade By Scrapingbliss

I would love to share this lo here. I've been playing with the wonderful features of the Cricut. I used the pens to draw and cut part of the title and then used it to cut cheetah felt board to cut the Wild Things and added stickers. I saw a sticker title similar to this in the store for 4.99 I bought the felt board for 99 cents with tons left for more zoo los.

TFL!

Where the Wild things are... By Scrapingbliss

Here is the next item from my list...a card. TFL!

Party Card By Scrapingbliss

Here is my recipe card, I don't like it but it was just for fun and to practice the cricut. I used grungeboard paper to cut the diecuts from and inked them. I used alcohol ink for the background.

TFL!

The Perfect Pina Colada By Scrapingbliss

Shades of Summer By Cwilliams1961

Hi Ladies!! Can you believe I finally finished a LO..???? I can't..it's been that kinda week.

I just love this pic of my ds! I used SCAL to cut the title, seahorses, palm tree, beach ball, and sun. I'm also in the August No Shopping challenge so I used up some old stickers and old paper..

Beach Baby By Cwilliams1961

Horay for Me!!! I finished my first ever card. Simple but cute. It has a white border, don't know if you can tell in the pic. I used my cricut to cut the letters.

For You By Cwilliams1961

I finally have another LO finished. I used my new expression to cut the title and lg butterfly then painted them with stickles. TFL!

Oh yeah, and this is my August lo! 4/5

August 1961 By Cwilliams1961

Yeah for me...two projects in one day! It's a record! Here is my 2nd card...Used my expression. TFL!

For You II By Cwilliams1961

I finished another lo of myself..only the 2nd one ever. I don't like my pics so I'm always the picture taker!

This one was taken when my dh & I were on vacation.

TFL!
About Me By Cwilliams1961
