I recently had a class on our brand new Base & Bling necklaces and everyone had a blast! In fact these necklaces were so much fun, quick, easy and inexpensive everyone wants to do it again! I wanted to share with you another quick way to use these pieces.
I created a Key Ring for my Father-in-law's birthday gift. The back has one of the stickers from the Story Teller sheet and then I put a picture of our kids (his only grandkids) in the front.
Super easy this came together in less than five minutes:
Welcome to the Crazy About CricutBlog Hop! I'm so excited for my friend Jenny and her FIVE year anniversary blogging about things she loves like paper crafting and the Cricut! I'm a huge fan of hers and am also a tiny bit obsessed with my Cricut machine so I am thrilled to be on this hop celebrating her and her fabulous blog! In addition we are celebrating her 37th birthday! Happy Birthday Jenny!!
If you have arrived from Jessica's blog Craftin And Stampin you are in the right place! If not you can start at the very beginning on Jenny's blog Crazy About Cricut!
Today I've created a Robot themed birthday package including a favor (or birthday gift bag), favor bag topper (can be used as food tags on a food table as well), and a birthday card. The list of supplies used is at the bottom of the post.
The food tags/favor bag tags were very simple. Just a 4X4 square of pattern paper from the Skylark paper pack folded in half. I added a piece of white cardstock for the words and then a colored robot kit from the same stamp set.
So by now you have heard that you can choose a Close To My Heart Cricut collection for FREE when you join my crafting club/team this month (April 2014). But what one do you choose? If you already have one or two you know how fabulous they are and making the choice might be easy. However, if you have not had the joy of trying any of the cartridges you might be at a loss at where to start. I have put together a short description of each cartridge for you to help make that choice a little easier.
Art Philosophy: The CTMH Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge includes foundational shapes and building blocks that are an essential staple for every crafter. You’ll find versatile geometric shapes, classic brackets, frames, florals, flourishes, borders, fonts, numbers, and more. With 700 images to choose from, it’s the cartridge you’ll buy and never take out of your cutter. Favorite elements include unique gift boxes, elegant doilies, and stunning 3-D rosettes, to name just a few.
Artiste: The Cricut® Artiste collection helps you turn everyday events into magical celebrations! The unique cartridge takes creativity to a new level allowing you to cut themed projects and shapes using a single key. Color-coded images in the accompanying booklet indicate shapes that are linked and can be cut using the same size setting for hassle-free layering and assembly. Choosing a themed project is easy with the project reference pictures, and assembling 3-D items is a snap with the separate assembly and folding guide.
(1) Artiste Cricut Cartridge (700 images: themed holiday & everyday celebration events, shapes, 3D items and much much more!)
(3) Exclusive D size stamp sets (valued at $17.95 each) titled: Artiste Birthdays, Artiste Word Balloons, and Artiste Kudos

so much more!
This cartridge is perfect for themed events, scrapbook pages and cards! I've used it to make favor boxes for a Women's tea at my church, fun place settings at Holiday meals, birthdays and even weddings! It is also one of my favorites for cards and envelopes.
Artbooking: Take your scrapbooking to never-before-seen levels with the new Cricut® Artbooking collection! With oodles of images in each of 15 layout themes, you can create several coordinating pages for each theme using just two keys and one dial size. Images include accents, borders, titles, overlays, photo mats—in standard photo sizes!—and more.
When you choose the Artbooking cartridge you will get the following:
(1) Artbooking cartridge (700 images: titles, photo mats, overlays, borders and more!)
(3) Exclusive D size stamp sets (valued at $17.95 each) titled Artbooking Sweet & Lovely, Artbooking My Life, and Artbooking Take Note.

50 + ~ Photo Mats
50 + ~ Overlays (perfect for both scrapbook pages and cards)
So so so much more!!
This is one of my absolute favorite cricut cartridges! I use it all the time! This is an revolutionary cartridge optimized for creating 12" x 12" pages in a jiffy. With the "real size dial off" you set your size dial at 11" and then everything is cut to scale meaning no wasted paper - title is cut to scale so are the photo mats, shapes and overlays to create the perfect page! You will love the 10 themed mini albums!
So now the hardest part for the month of April is choosing your cartridge and I hope this post has helped you with that choice! If you still think this deal is not for you each one of these cartridge bundles are available for $99 on my website.
Happy Crafting! I look forward to having you as a part of our Creatively Redeeming Treasures team!
