Thursday February 16--Theme Day: Formal Occasions Cricut cartridge

Happy Thursday everyone!

Today is Theme Day Thursday at My Cricut Craft Room.  I decided to use the Formal Occasions cartridge for my project.  I also used Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake art cricut cartridge, a bottle of soap, navy, white, & orange vinyl, and some ribbon.

I have really liked using this idea to make gifts for my friends!  You can do almost anything you want with it!

I cut the flower out of the Formal Occasions cartridge at 2",  the "love" out of the Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake art cartridge at 1".  Then I tied on the ribbon.  Thanks for taking a look at my project! Don't forget to visit the other Design Team members projects at .

Sweets for the Sweets

  Sweets for The Sweets Scrappy Emt. Design team post for today!

For today's project I used Cindy Loo cricut cartridge, new blue fuzzy socks, a circle punch, red cardstock,  & red fibers.  I made a "cup cake".
I didn't have any cartridges that would make a cupcake wrapper so I used the popcorn box from the Cindy Loo cartridge I cut it at fit to page.  Then I rolled the socks and used little clear rubber bands around the top and bottom to hold them together.  I used my circle cutter to cut a red circle then glued fibers to it to look like a cherry.  Thanks for stopping by!

Be sure to leave a comment at each hop stop to show all the participants a little love.

This is a two-day blog hop. Today is day 2!

I really like to make gifts, but I want them to be functional. So around the Holiday's I saw an idea on either Facebook or the Cricut message board.  I can't remeber which one. I tried to find the person who had this idea but could not. So if you posted a similar idea using a winter/Christmas theme please leave me your web address so I can give credit where credit was due!  I loved the idea and thought it would be cute for any season for a little gift!

I purchased the soap bottles at Sam's.  I cut the lips & the word "smack" from the Indie Art cartridge on my gypsy with navy vinyl.  I used the Cake Basics cricut cartridge to cut the heart border out of white vinyl.  I used some ribbon with wire for the top.  I really like how it turned out! 

Thanks for stopping back today to see my project!!  Hope you like and and can use the idea yourself with your own spin on it!!
