Cricut Craftin Friends Blog Hop

Cricut Craftin Friends Blog Hop 
Celebrating Cricut Craftin Grammys 1 year

We're so happy you could join us for this hop celebrating the one year blogaversary of Cricut Craftin Grammy. I have asked a few of my Cricut Messageboard friends as well as my Design Team friends (Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog, Lasting Memories and Sweet Sassy Diva )to join her in this two day Blog Hop. The participants are allowed to share anything creative they wish to share using a Cricut (or other die cut machine if they do not have a Cricut.)

Overall Blog Candy

I hope you will hop along with us and leave comments along the way. For the overall blog candy you need to leave a comment on each blog each day.

If you leave a comment on all the blogs both days your name will be entered into the Random drawing twice. The random winner will receive a $25 gift card from their choice of Michaels or Joanns.

This is a TWO-DAY hop, so be sure to check out both days so you don't miss any creativeness. Because there is a large number of participants I will give you until January 30th to post your comments for the two days of the blog hop.  Thanks for joining us!

Let's get hopping!! If you've hopped over from Mindy, then you are in the right place!! If you've just popped in to visit my blog or are reading this via email and you'd like to join our FUN, then please CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Suzanne's Blog

Thank you so much Suzanne for inviting me to celebrate your blogiversary today. I thought I'd share a great project inspired by a fellow CTMH consultant. I think we can all agree we need help getting more organized and so I love it when we can accomplish that and scrapbooking at the same time. Instead of getting a plain old white wipe off board let's make one and customize it to match any room, style, or color you like.

First you need a picture frame. This is a 11X14 but you could use any size or style.
Next choose your papers and let's have some fun.
I cut paper to fit through my printer and did a simple document for the days of the week and printed it straight onto the patterned paper.

I used the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge for all of my cuts. If you don't have this cart you are missing out on the best cartridge PC has ever done. It has a lil bit of everything to keep you busy for a long time. There's two fonts with uppercase and lowercase, 3D projects such as boxes, bags, and even flowers, borders, doilies, banners, scrolls, and images galore.

frame of your choosing
Wipe Off marker

Thank you again for checking out my project...
and if you'd like to check out any of the products I used today click on the links and it will take you right to the item. I'd love to be your CTMH consultant if you don't have one yet.
