Die Cuttin' Divas #213 Kids Theme

Hi Crafty Friends! 

I hope you are all having a great Tuesday! I'm really happy to share with you all my project for the new kid themed challenge at the Die Cuttin' Divas. It is so much fun to make a card with kids in mind. I do have to admit that most of my cards seem a little childish and I send them to adults as well as kids :) I really love cheerful happy fun cards and this one is no exception. Since the bookmark I made last week was for my daughter I made this card with my son in mind. I call him my "monster boy", so a monster card seemed quite fitting. 

This card makes me laugh out loud. All of the cuts were made with my Cricut Explore. The monster is from the Bump in the Night cartridge and the starburst and circles are from various shapes cartridges. Both patterned papers are from Doodlebug and the solids are from The Paper Studio. I also put the little monster guy on an action wobble, and printed the sentiment from my computer. 

So what do you all think? Pretty cute right? I can't wait to see all of your kid themed projects at the Die Cuttin' Divas. Don't forget your die cuts! I hope you all have a great week. Thanks for reading!!

Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #212 National Garden Month

Hello Crafty Friends! 

Happy Tuesday :) I hope your week has started off well. I've had a bit of a rocky start, but I am back in the swing now. This time of the year is so busy. I know I've said it before, but things seem to be moving much faster in the spring. Storm season has begun here in Oklahoma and thus tornado season too. That means less sleep on stormy nights ha :) It is so amazing to see all of the things in bloom though. I don't think I've ever been so excited by all of the plants before. I am appreciating them like I never have. That makes this week's challenge at the Die Cuttin' Divas extra fun. It's a garden theme. 

My project kind of fell in my lap. My 9 year old daughter has been complaining that I haven't made her anything in a while, so I was looking for a project to make her. I decided on a bookmark since reading is one of her favorite hobbies. In the Cricut library they had this awesome The Secret Garden bookmark. It's the first book on her summer reading list, so I thought this was perfect! That little overachiever is already reading it and I didn't know haha, but she will have a bookmark for the back half of the book :) 

I purchased the cut from Cricut and all the papers are from The Paper Studio. I used Wink of Stella to add shimmer to the blue layer. It was a very simple project, but I love it so much!

She loves it and it looks great in her book. I hope to see you all at the Die Cuttin' Divas this week! Don't forget the die cut :) Thanks for reading you guys! Have a great week.

Zoo Awareness Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #211

Hello Crafty Friends! 

Happy Tuesday to you all! Today starts a super fun challenge at the Die Cuttin' Divas. This weeks challenge theme is "Zoo Awareness Day", where you make a project with a zoo animal! I love this! I purchased my die cut from Miss Kate Cuttables. I love elephants. There are many birthdays here this month. This card is for a sweet little girl's first birthday. 
This was such a fun image to work with. The papers are all from Simple Stories Vintage Bliss. I cut both the image and the sentiment on my Cricut Explore. I'm always amazed by how well it cuts. The Happy Day was from the Cricut store. 

I hope you all enjoy this sweet card as much as I do. I hope to see you all at the Die Cuttin' Divas. Don't forget the die cut! Thanks for reading. :)
