Batman IPad Cover

Sorry I have not been around much this last week, but I caught something and was in the bed sick for the majority of the week.  I do have one project to share with you today, but I haven't had much crafting time.  My hubby bought me an IPad and I wanted to personalize it, but I did not want to put anything directly on it.  So, I found this snap on cover at Walmart and used white vinyl to decorate it.  You may remember I used this same saying on some cups a few months ago.  I used the Batman Cartridge to cut everything out for this.  I like how it turned out.  I am still getting over the end of this sickness, but hopefully it will be cleared up in the next day or two and I will be able to catch up on some crafting.  See you all later. :)

For my project, I wanted to make something for a super hero party.  I decided to make some cute party hats.  I started out by getting the blue party hats at Party City and then used white vinyl to decorate them.
I used the Batman Cricut Cartridge for the words and the Graphically Speaking Cartridge for the stars.

A Lego Shirt

I cut this Lego guy out with an 8 in the center using SCAL and Kaylee's mom Melissa painted him onto her shirt with black glitter fabric paint.  We forgot to take a picture while making it, so I had to get her to let me take a pic at the party.

Lego Plates

Here are some plates that I made for Kaylee's party tomorrow. The square plates came from Target and I used black vinyl for the face. I used the same face from the Smiley Cards Gypsy Cartridge for these that I have used on the other Lego projects.

Lego wrapped present

Here is another Lego project I have to share, it is Kaylee's birthday present that I wrapped to look like a Lego block.  I bought solid red wrapping paper at Hobby Lobby and wrapped the box.  Then, I used a red cardstock that was slightly lighter than the paper and cut circles out with the George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge for the top.  I used pop dots to attach these to the top of the present.

Lego Cups

Here is another Lego project for the party.  My sister got these cups at the Dollar Tree and I used yellow and black vinyl to make the Lego heads for the front of the cups.  These heads were made the same as the cupcake toppers using George and Basic Shapes to make the head and Smiley Cards for the face.  She is putting these into the goodie bags for the party.  I made 24 of these.

Lego Man Cupcake Toppers

Kaylee's lego themed party is on Sunday, so this week, I will have a few of the items I made for the party to share.  First up, I have some cupcake toppers for the party.  I used the George and Basic Shapes Cartridge to weld and manipulate cylinder shapes together to make a lego head.  I then used the emoticons on the Smiley Cards Gypsy Cartridge to cut the faces for them.  I made a front and back for the toppers and hot glued them to mini skewers to put in the cupcakes.  I made 36 of these for the party.
 Here you can see how I put an extra lego head on the back to give them a finished look.

Valentine Cards

I needed eight Valentine Cards and I decided to make all of the same design this year.  I started out with a white card base that was 4 inches wide x 5.5 inches high.  I then used the George and Basic Shapes Cartridge and glossy cardstock to cut a red square that was a size 3.5 inches wide x 5 inches high.  I then used white vinyl to cut the sentiment using the Batman Cartridge for the font and the Doodlecharms Cartridge for the heart.

I am entering these into the following challenges:
Scrappy Moms Terrific Tuesday: Hearts Galore:
My Craft Spot: Valentine's Day:
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog: Love is in the Air (use a heart):

Decorate to Celebrate Diva Party Challenge: Design Team Project

Hey everybody!! It is time for a new challenge over at Decorate to Celebrate.  This week we are asking you to create a project for a Diva Themed Party and you must use the color pink!  Be sure to stop by and see all of the projects by the design team and enter you project here:

For my project, I decided to make a table decoration fit for a Diva.  I started out with a $1 pink bucket from Party City and used white vinyl and the Batman Cricut Cartridge to cut "You're the Bomb" for the front of the bucket.  Next, I used the Indie Art Cartridge for my bomb and the Batman Cartridge for the word Boom.   I used pink glitter paper for the main cuts and white for their bases.  I put a styrofoam base in the bucket and covered it with pink shredded paper.  Next, I took two wooden dowels and covered them in pink ribbon, once they were covered I used hot glue to attach my cuts to them and then placed them in the bucket to finish it off.

Lego Man Bucket

Kaylee is having a lego theme for her birthday party this year, so I wanted to make a little bucket that looked like a lego man's head to fill up with the lego minifigures to go along with her gift.  This was so simple to make.  I started out with a yellow bucket from Party City that was $1 and used black vinyl to put the face on.  I used a face from the Smiley Cards Gypsy Cartridge for the eyes and mouth.

I-Pod Valentine Treats

I found this adorable printable over here:  and I just had to make these for Kaylee's class.  I printed them out on white cardstock and used the Martha Stewart Score Pal to score them and then cut them out.  I used a stip of glue to attach them on the edges around a box of Brach's Sweetheart Candies.  Kaylee loves them and I think they will be a huge hit for the kids.  They were very simple to put together and I am sure you could get them printed or copied if you didn't want to print them at home.  I made a total of 24 of these.  Here is a picture of the front and back of the finished treats.
 Here is a close up of the fronts of the I-Pod printables.
Here is a pic showing what they look like before being wrapped around the candy box.  Make sure you use the 1 ounce size candies so they will fit.  I purchased these at Target and they were 8 in a package for $2.
