Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop


KaDoodle Bug Designs is a super sponsor. 
KaDoodle Bug Designs 




Hello all. I thought that this one is so sweet for a teacher, baby sitter or just a coffee lover. 

After getting all the pieces cut out I decided that I wanted to make it into a card that has a "hidden" pocket. So I cut out just the cup part and started to fold it in different ways to hold a gift card. 

I embossed the none slip gripper, colored some pieces with the gel glitter pens to had some shimmer.


 I also added an other "shadow" piece to the back to right a message.




Thanks for stopping in. 
Here is the start of all the fun:

School's out for summer!

Hello all thanks for stopping in. 

With summer upon us I was thinking about when I went to school specially since I was usually on a bus to and from school. 
Now with my son riding the bus I thought of this cute file to give back to people being a bus driver. 

I used foam dots on some of the pieces to make the pop out more. I also used acetate on the window of the bus. 

Thanks for stopping in.

Teacher Appreciation Week


Hello all DT Amber here to show you this awesome file for Teacher Appreciation Week.



I used the School Day Bookworms file. 

I only used the one file but there is so much potential use of the other files included with this.

When using this file I made flipped images of the "shadow" piece so I could use my Cricut Explore Air 2 to write the message on the back.

The apple part I duplicated and added the names of each teacher to them as well to be wrote with my cricut. 

I then just used a hole punch to have a way to attach these to each vase.



Here is a look at the whole project I did. 

To make the flower pens I got some dollar store flowers and cut them off the branch with my wire cutters.

I then pulled out the bottom of the pen. You will need to make sure you get the pens that are NOT clickers.

I then tested the cut flower to see if I needed to cut anymore wire off from the stem so the flower head would be flush with the end of the pen.

I then got out my floral tape and started at the tip of the pen and wrapped the floral tape at a slight angle up and around the pen. I continued to wrap it all the way to the head of the flower and a few time around the top to make sure it was covered well.

I filled the vases with "river rocks" I got from the dollar store as well.

I then used my tape runner around the top of the vases so it would hold the ribbon in place.

After getting the ribbon on I did hot glue the one end down and made the bow and hot glued it to the spot I just done to keep the ribbon end on. 

I then placed the cap back on the pen and put it and the butterfly into the vase.

  I then attached the tags I made for each teacher with some twine.


Hope you enjoy this project! 

 Happy Crafting!

Happy Spring, Happy Easter


Good afternoon!

I wanted to share this cutie chick file with you for just in time for your Easter and spring last minute projects. 



It is just so cute and very easy to put together for those last minute Easter baskets or happy spring cards you want to get out. 

You can grab your CK Chick file here. 




I did a solid white cardstock with patterned paper adhered on top. Then I added some cute polkda dotted vellum and put the purple glittered edge on. Added my CK Chick file on some foam dots along with the special delivery. 

Special delivery file and the frame are both in the Cricut design space Cricut Access monthly subscription.   


Happy Crafting!
