Shadow Box/Create a Critter


I was watching Kathy from Paper Phenomenon a few nights ago (was it last week?), making a shadow box for the Pita babes. I was so smitten by her project that I went out, got hot glue, and decided I too would make a box with some snazzy saying. Yeah, well, let's just say I'm, hot-glue-challenged and leave it at that. However, I don't give up that easy!! I made a smaller version using a little bit of hot glue, and LOTS of my user-friendly Tombo adhesive. I also hand painted a cornucopia I found about a year ago in the $ bin at Joanne's and Tombo'd that baby right on the box too. The Owl is from Create a Critter. The frame and phrase are from Wild Card. I cannot recall where the frame for the box was from. I also added Stickles and distressed stickles too. If Kathy is watching, thanks for the inspiration babe! BTW, my nails are all in one piece! LOL Papers are from DCWV Fall stack-Gotta have 'em!!

Cricut Explore Air 2 Dreamcatcher Tutorial

Thank  you for joining me!
Today I was inspired to create a Dream catcher with existing shapes using my Cricut Explore Air 2. This was brought about after a Facebook post that got me thinking..."I can do that!"
I hope that you are also inspired to create your own. I have made a 2-part video series to show you how you can easily make your own version of dies that you love, but might not be easily accessible, or if you're anything like me, you want to be resourceful!
