Welcome to Day One of PaperCraftingWorld.com and CookingWithCricut.com’s first Blog Hop of 2012! Our theme is: “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue!”
If you have arrived here from visiting Larelyn at Handmade from My Heart, you’re in the right place! If you've just popped in . . . head on over to see Melin at CookingWithCricut.com and start at the beginning so you don’t miss any of the wonderful projects the Designers have created -- 'cause I'm the caboose on this train!
Our Designers had to use something old from their craft stash, something new (a recent purchase or new technique), something borrowed (an element from a Cricut cut or from a PaperCraftingWorld.com cutting file or digi stamp) and of course, something blue.
I recently completed a number of items for a little boy's first birthday. His Mommy and Daddy selected a gator theme using pastel blue, a light lime green and white. Here is what I came up with . . .
Every birthday boy needs a special shirt! I used my Cricut and the Create-A-Critter and Cindy Loo cartridges.
|The gator is cut at 6 1/2" wide by 1 1/2" tall is from the Create-A-Critter|
cartridge the number one is cut from Cindy Loo at 2 1/4" tall.
|This is the birthday boy sporting his new shirt-- isn't he a cutie pie!|
And here is how I fulfilled the hop requirements:
- Something old ~ Create-A-Critter cartridge
- Something new ~ White polo shirt
- Something borrowed ~ one layer from the multi-layered gator
- Something blue ~ the number one
I also created a banner and some clothespins to hang pictures from his first year.
Here's the recipe for the banner:
Pastel blue circles cut from Accent Essentials at 5 1/2".
- White "gear" cut from Accent Essentials at 5".
- Gators cut from Create-A-Critter at 4 1/2" wide.
- Text cut from Mickey Font at 3" tall.
Aren't these clothespins cute -- almost as cute as those baby pictures! These gators are also from Create-A-Critter and are cut at 1" high by 2 3/4" wide. The larger gator measures 11" wide by 3 7/8" high.
Tomorrow I'll be sharing several more items from this party -- here's a hint . . . there's cake involved! So don't miss out!
And it certainly wouldn't be a Blog Hop without some Blog Candy, now would it! I have four sets of clear stamps by Inkadinkado that I'm giving away -- two sets today and two sets tomorrow. To be eligible you must leave a comment on each day's post with your e-mail address. I'd love it if you'd like to become a follower of my blog, but it is not a requirement.
Here is today's giveaway:
|The stamp on the left is 2 1/4" square and the four small stamps are each 1" square.|
