and this week's theme
is
Challenge #146
January 28th - Time Flies
Include a clock or something pertaining to time
We invite you to create any project featuring a cricut cartridge cut that has to do with time.
Be sure to upload your entry on the FCCB.
 Here's what I have created for this challenge:
 
 
When I saw the Cricut Craft Room Seasonal Characters I knew I had to create a layout with Baby New Year and Father Time. They are super cute. Don't you agree?
 
 
Close Up Page 1
 

Close Up Page 2
 


You might recognize a couple of other Cricut Carts on this layout too.
For my title I used Create A Critter 2. No welding invloved! The Happy New Year title is super easy to cut and use. And my big Clock Tower was created using the Creative Memories Traveler Cartridge. I simply cut off the very top part of it to make it look like this.
 
 
I also fancy cut some of the orange designs in the patterned paper and pop dotted them around the layout. Kind of like special snowflakes!
Products used to create this layout:
StorytellersClub printed paper
Bazzill and cardtsock
pop dots
Blue Brad on clock
 
I didn't add photos on this yet but don't worry I will. I have about 4 years of catching up on layouts to do. LOL!
I hope that you have enjoyed my project as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you. I love receiving comments and new followers. It means so much to me! So please feel free to drop me a note and follow my blog for more inspiration, giveaways, and tips.

  Happy Chinese New Year

Hello scrappy friends, Connie with Connie Can Crop here to share my lastest Creative Kuts Masterpiece Layout entitled : Happy New Year
 
I wish I celebrated the Chinese New Year because Cheryl really outdid herself with this file. Don't you agree? This amazing file includes everything seen here except the bottom border and photo mats. The paper I chose to use was from some really old CM customer gifts. It's bright colors and patterns were the perfect fit!

 
Page 1 up close 
 
 
 These little boy bears with the dragon are my favorite part of this file!

 
Page 2 up close
 
 
This photo mat topper can be made a boy or girl dragon.
 
 
And this little girl bear just makes me smile. She is so cute!
 
 
The lanterns all have black twine hanging them off the tops of the pages. And there is alot of pop dots being used here to give it that great 3D look!
 
 
This layout is available in my ebay store. Please feel free to come check it out along with all of my other layouts and projects.

Creative Memories patterned paper

  Challenge Me Monday at FCCB

Pin It

It's Challenge Me Monday over at
and this week's theme
is
 
We invite you to create any project featuring a cricut cartridge cut that is masculine.
That's it! Easy peasy..right?
Be sure to upload your entry on the FCCB.
 
Here's what I have created for this challenge:
 

 
I chose to use Creative Memories Traveler Cartridge for both the tent and the title. This cart has so many awesome designs as well as several font choices. Don't know where to buy it?....ask me!!
I made the tent look like there is 3 layers but it is really only two. I used my copics to add that 3rd color. Wala!
 
 
This is my young man attending his last Boy Scout Camp before he decided he didn't want to be a scout anymore. It was a sad day when he made the decision. I was his leader all through cubscouts and he truly loved being a scout. But I guess when they enter high school they find new dreams and ways to spend their time. For my son, it's all about the Band and Drumline, and I couldn't be more proud of him!
 
I hope that you have enjoyed my project as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you. I love receiving comments and new followers. It means so much to me! So please feel free to drop me a note and follow my blog for more inspiration, giveaways, and tips.

Today we invite you to come check out this great group of crafters who will be showcasing cards and layouts having to do with time.

I am the first stop in this hop so be sure to come back and leave your comment after you have finished the hop.
 
This is a one day blog hop and we appreciate your leaving a comment to encourage all my fabulous crafty friends to continue sharing their ideas and creations.
 
  We have a fabulous sponsor, Creative Kuts (http://creativekuts.blogspot.com/), who is generously giving away this really cute New Year's SVG file.
 
So what do you need to do to win? Easy... become a follower of each of the fabulous blogs in this hop and leave each of us a comment letting us know what you like best about our projects. Then head over to http://conniecancrop.blogspot.com/ and post that you followed the rules. You will have until 9:00 pm Sunday to finish the hop and leave your comments.

Be sure to follow everyone and leave a comment along the way!

Ready to join in the fun? Let's go!

 I have been working on this layout all week and it fits perfect for this blog hop as well!
So I asked Cheryl over at Creative Kuts if I could give away this file and show it off for all of you.
 
I didn't use the cute borders that came with this file because I wanted more room for more photos.
I also hand cut a hitch to put on the last train car and tied my balloons to the hitch.
 
I used twine for the balloons and bling on my clock. For my sand I used gold stickles.
My family's pics of this New Years will look amazing on this layout!
 
 Thanks for checking out my project. I hope you enjoyed it!
