I am so excited to share with you 3 new projects. First off is my Chore Chart I created for my boys. This is especially coming in handy while I recover from my accident. I love it. Below is my grid for my chart. I used Vinyl on the entire project. Shown is white vinyl matted with red vinyl. (yes you can use paper too)(but you'll see why I chose vinyl) The lines are drawn on with a sharpie using a ruler. The squares are 1 1/4" and the grid is 18 wide by 11 1/2 tall.

Using the Chore Chart Cartridge I cut the days of the week out in vinyl at 1 1/4".

I then cut the symbol for each chore at the same height.

So why vinyl? Well because after I finished this I stuck it on my fridge and we used a whiteboard pen to write down who gets what chore. It is brilliant! Should have done this so much sooner!

 My next project is a cute gift idea for any disney lover. Who doesn't love Minnie? Using some random cardtsock and paper I had on hand as well as my In Stitch'z by Bazzill, I created a fun frame.

Using a template from In Stitch'z and some red floss I created this giant flower on the background paper.

For my finishing touches I added Minnie Mouse cut out with the Mickey Font Cartridge at 5 1/2". I added a few flowers and pearls on the inside as well as two on the outside for dimension. My finished 6x6 frame would amke any Disney fan happy.

And finally a cute lil card with some western flair. For this card I used Stampin Up paper, Rusty Pickle paper and cardstock along with ribbons, pop dots and a black Glaze pen (my favs).
The Cricut Cartridge I used is Old West. Such fun cuts! I cut out background Poster at 4" and cut the star at 2.5".  The horseshoe was cut at 2" and pop dotted for a 3D effect. I added some ribbon in the middle of the star and outlined "WANTED" with my black pen. This card is perfect for my next little buckaroo's party.
