4 T's that were white

My daughter lent me 4 T shirts to play with. My granddaughter is now 4 months old and I so much wanted to play with my new Cricut Imagine doing things I couldn't do on anything else. I used Better together and Straight from the nest to put these cuts onto T shirt transfer paper and this is what I have done. I just love the result and love the new Big Bug. The Crafters Anonymous Challenge I set was Something Old Something New Something Borrowed Something Blue. And 3d well T'shirts are 3d! old well Tyler is 4 months old, New oh of course that is the machine the Cricut Imaging only 3 days old, borrowed is the T-shirts and blue? well take a close look and you will see a little blue bird in the tree.

Kelly the cake artist

I spent the weekend with my good friend and up line StampinUp Demonstrator Julia. Her daughter Kelly and I spent Sunday night playing with the cricut cake. Kelly made cupcakes and we cut decorations out of fondant on the cc. Kelly did a fantastic job of decorating the cupcakes. I had so much fun as we rolled the fondant sooo very thin and then watched as the Cricut Cake cut it out. Kelly then had the job of using the picker to pick all the tiny bits out of the butterfly wings and flowers. Kelly is awesome and has a lot of talent. I can see her getting a Cricut cake to decorate her cupcakes. My grateful thanks to Julia for putting up with me for the weekend and for letting Kelly and I loose in her kitchen.

Stampin Up Tauranga Extravaganza Christmas Cracker with a difference

As I have said already when I bring things home to do, I do them differently. This was supposed to be a christmas cracker but I ws thinking birthdays and other events so this was my take on the christmas cracker. Inside can hold chocolates, wrapped ones would be best as then it wouldn't matter if they hit the ground. The original one was in the shape of a triangle and the embossing was a flower motif pattern. Mine is round and the embossing pattern more of a crosses pattern and is from the new December mini. The edge is punched with the new mini heart punch and of course the little flowers are dimentioned to the body of the cracker. and the bird well I just love the birdie punch.

Christmas Star in SU DSP

An awesome Christmas star. I learnt the pattern at Crafters Anonymous. I made it in Jolly Holly DSP and spritzed it with Gold spritz.

Top Note Photo Album-Tauranga Extravaganza

As a demonstrator at the Tauranga Extravaganza I got the projects to take home to do. This means I put my own slant on them. I noticed that when the top note die album opened the points hit each other, so I added a spine between the front and back, this is the cherry cobbler paper with the dots. I edged the sentiment with the heart edge punch which will be available in the new mini catalogue December 1st. I spritzed the front with the gold spritz which you can see well in the last photo. The pages have a pocket which can hold journaling or photos.

I was there in the capacity of helping out one of the trades people demonstrate the Cricut Cake machine. I thought I would just show you what some people are capable of as all these creation are made of sugar in some form.

StampinUp stamp sets

These are 2 little cards I made with sets from StampinUp. The first is "Loads of Love" and I do love the little pickup and the second is Because I care a hostess set of level one. I used the masking technique with the 2nd one with the flower and the corner and edge punch on the 1st one. Made with scraps of card and ink spot colours from SU.
