boy am i late posting today!! ever have the best laid out schedule and then it just doesn’t seem to come together? today was pezza’s last day of preschool so they had a big BBQ on the playground complete with a snocone – i think pez was in heaven! i hd fully intended to play cricut cake this afternoon BUT not happenin…*sniff sniff* perhaps tomorrow morning…..instead i will be spending my afternoon editing videos and typing tutorials!
my very first online class is now open – this is a VERY BASIC intro to the Cricut machine. if your machine is STILL IN THE BOX this class is for you! It includes 5 lessons – video AND PDF tutorials! CLICK HERE to sign up
Stay tuned for additional classes!
Susana has some awesome blog candy up for grabs but time is running out – you only have a few hours to enter HERE ! While you’re over there be sure to take a look at the incredible projects created by the DTs today!
since it ws the lst day of preschool of COURSE i just had to make little gifties for pezza’s teacher and the other ladies in the community center:
i made four and filled them with several of those new starbucks viva instant coffees, and some yummy teas, long with a goodie bag full of various pepperidge farm cookies – mmmmmm
the box itself was cut on my Cricut using Sweet Treats – makes it SO easy! it is actually a cupcake holder but i cut it larger – 9″ which gave me a 3″ square box. Then i scored the fold lines with my scorpal.
next i stamped this cute little coffee break stamp using inspirations shimmering paints instead of regular old ink – i really like the look you get when stamping with paint. the inspirations paints work GREAT for stamping AND you get the nice shimmer too! i take a finger tip dabber and dip it into a little paint. then i tap it out on my craft sheet until it’s very thin and then tap it lightly onto my stamp – TA DA! you do have to work quickly though so the paint doesn’t dry before you stamp your image!
i decorated the back too! add Prima flowers and some of my glittered skittles and you have super easy cuteness!
i hope everyone has fun stuff to look forward to this long weekend!!
