My very first cricut project! {A few months ago}

I made this banner for my best friend's mom on her 45th birthday.. I think it came out really cute.
I used an animal print assorted paper pack for the letters cut at 5.5" from the Simply Sweet cart. I added a shadow and connected them all with bronze assorted mini brads.

Very Fun!!

Happy Birthday Courtney!

My best friends birthday was on Feb. 9th and she loves zebra and the color purple! So I decided to use my new cartridge; Create-A-Critter and I absolutely lovvee it! :)
The zebra is from page 47 cut at 3.5" with the shadow instead of blackout for the outline
The happy birthday is from the same cart page 27 with the top layer offset for a shadow effect
All paper is from Recollections 1lb scrap stack including irradescent white background paper

The iloveu is from page 49
faux stitched with silver pen and glitter gelpens 
the girls are hand drawn using bic markers

Thank you cards

Each card was made with different colored paper from a big paper stack at Micheals, I forget what the actual pack is called though.
"Thank you" is cut from Simply Sweet cart at 2.5" with shadow
The inside has coordinating papers, all alternated between cards.

My first cards
{before owning a cricut}

These are the invitations I HANDMADE for my baby shower last year. I had never tried to make cards before, I was only into scrapbook pages. I handmade 50 of these precious invites...took me soooo long, almost the whole pregnancy :)

I used vellum and drew the entire image, colored with Bic markers.
I attached it with 4 eyelets; one in each corner, to a premade card from Michaels [4" x 5.5"]
The charms I also bought at Michaels, and the ribbon is Sheer Creations.
The inside I printed a message on plain orange paper, I used a Martha Stewart safety pin punch, and little bows from Michaels.
Each carriage was hand cut out of assorted paint chips and the buttons are from "button buckets pink"
The "Its's A Shower!" stamp is Inkadinkado & the footprint stamp is Recollections, both in ColorBox ink in pink
