TTC - Rock Princess

Hi everyone! Hope your Saturday is fabulous! I decided to join the challenge over at Scrappy Moms Stamps-Terrific Tuesday Challenge! I currently don't own any of her stamps, but I will be purchasing some hopefully by next week! If you have never seen her stamps, go check them out here, they are fabulous!! Her challenge this week was to use the Rock Princess cartridge, I don't own this cartridge, but you can still play if you use a similar cut.

I decided to make a card for a precious little girl from my church. She was diagnosed with epilepsy and had her first surgery this past Thursday. She ROCKED her surgery and came out a HUGE STAR!! We love her and will continue to pray for her!

Hannah Montana Cartridge was the cartridge that I used to make her card.

Here it is...

 The PINK card stock was cut at 3.75 x 4.50
The STARS (pg 69) were cut at 3.50, 3, 2

MCT-Throwback Thursday Challenge

Good afternoon! Today I am going to share a project that I made for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge!
This is her challenge: "This challenge is a SPORTS CHALLENGE! Use any sports cartridge you have & if you don't own any sports theme carts, just use anything you have & just make sure it has something to do w/sports!:) ***Make a card, layout or anything you want!!" 

I decided to make a goody bag for a friend of the family who "Lives, Breathes, and Eats Baseball"! This is his first year in college and his first baseball game is coming up. So I thought it would be nice to fill it up with some seeds, gum, and a sports drink. I tried to keep it simple (because he is a and I really like the way it turned out!

Here it is:

Using "Sports Mania Cricut Cartridge", Baseball is life was cut at 3 1/2 inches and the baseball border was cut at 1 1/2  inches. Since the baseball border didn't have a shadow feature, I used my gypsy to hide the threads of the baseball and cute that one in red and just cut another border out in white without hiding the threads.

 If it's noticeable, I sponged the edges of the baseballs to help them look a little distressed. I like to do that anytime that I have white card stock against kraft!

To give it more interest I added a few details on my font. I think adding this added a whole lot and made it look even!

On the back of the goody bag, I just placed his number. I used "Boys will be Boys" for the #5 and had it cut at 4 1/2 inches. I think I might even add a tag to the handles of the bag and stamp good luck on it, I don't know yet!

Well I hope you like it and good luck to all the ladies that participated in MCT Challenge!
