PCW~CWC Home Décor Blog Hop

Welcome to Paper Crafting World (http://www.papercraftingworld.com) and Cooking With Cricut’s (http://www.cookingwithcricut.com) Home Décor Blog Hop!  Our Design Teams are so excited to bring you a two-day hop that focuses on projects for your home – that’s right no cards or scrapbook layouts in this hop!  You should have arrived here from visiting Jennie B at http://www.javajencreations.blogspot.com/  .  If you’ve joined us in mid-Hop and would like to check out all the other fantastic projects head on over Melinda’s Paper Crafting World   (http://www.cookingwithcricut.com) and start at the beginning.

For my Home Décor project I decided to make a decorated box for my big bling rings. They were all over my bathroom counter and getting dusty and that just won't do!! I bought the box at Wal~Mart in the stationary section for $5.00. 

 This is the view from the side. I used the Storybook Cartridge for the decorations.
I added some rhinestone flowers and black diamond stickles to make it blingy on the outside.
Here are all my big bling rings!  I cut pieces of quilt batting to make it soft for my rings to lay on! Now it is sitting on my dresser and all my pretties are safe from dust ;)

We hope you’ll link up your Home Décor project for a chance at winning one of our giveaways.  One winner will be chosen by random draw and three others will be selected by the Design Team.  Head on over to Cooking With Cricut  (http://www.cookingwithcricut.com) for the guidelines and the link up.

Cooking With Cricut #81 Card Outreach

This week our challenge over at Cooking With Cricut was to create thinking of you cards for 6 year old Emily and 13 year old Patty. Both of these little girls are battling cancer.  


I took a 6x12 inch strip of paper and cut it at angles to make the card. Then I scored it at 4 and 8 inches to make it fold up.  I cut the girls names using storybook shadow at 2 inches.  I also used storybook to cut the purple scalloped circles.

Hope this brightens their day!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cooking With Cricut #80 Easter Theme

For this challenge I chose to make these cute little Easter Baskets for my nieces and nephews on my husbands side! We are all going to be together this weekend for the first time in 2 years!  So EGG~CITED ;) hehe

I cut the baskets with Plantin school book. The pink baskets were cut at 12 1/2. The blue baskets were cut at 6 1/4.

I cut the bunnies at 3 1/2 and then used my pink gel pen and my black pen to accent the faces.

Cooking With Cricut #77

This week the challenge was to make something with a St. Patrick's Day theme or with rainbows. I remembered these pictures and had to use them! Here is what I came up with:
 I used the Create a Critter cartridge for the cloud, the umbrella, rainy day title, and the rainbow. I cut them all at 4 inches.
 Some people feel the rain, others just get wet. Bob Marley
If you want to see the rainbow, you have to put up with the rain.

Have a Scrappy Happy Day

Cooking With Cricut Challenge # 76

I was chosen to be a Design Team Member over at Cooking With Cricut!!  My very first project as a member of a Design Team!!  WOW!!! So Exciting!!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! Read Across America.
Our first Team Challenge was to share a project featuring our favorite Dr. Seuss book or a project that encouraged reading.

What better way to encourage reading then with a cute bookmark to put in your favorite book?!?!? 

I cut the book mark from the Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge at size 4 inches.

Here is a close up of the poem and the tassle. I bought the tassle in the yarn clearance section of Hobby Lobby, I got 2 of them for $.89. Love a Bargain!
 The girl book worm is a digi stamp from Paper Crafting World. I colored her with my colored pencils and then outlined her with my purple star dust pen for some sparkle
 I outlined the Seuss Trees, which are also from Paper Crafting World, with Lavendar and Lagoon Stickles to make them pop off the page.

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a Scrappy Happy Day!

Okay, now to the best part! Here are the Five blogs I have chosen to receive this award:

#1 My momma (AKA Me~Ma Kim) is #1 because I never would have started scrapping if she hadn't introduced me to it. She gave me my whole life in a scrapbook album when I turned 16, because she couldn't afford to give me a car! I still have my scrapbooks and my first car is in a junk yard somewhere! She makes amazing layouts and I am envious of her talent!

#2 Jaime over at Scrap Queen I have been following her for awhile and I just LOVE her style! She shares my love of pink and black combos!

Purple Cows Color Challenge

The challenge was to make a project using the colors purple, white, and black! Purple Cows posted inspiration photos and I got my idea from this one:



  I had a lot of fun with this project!  Here is my take:

I decided to keep my design very simple because the zebra print stands alone lol. 

~The zebra print paper is from Paper Studio and was inspired by the rug in the pic.
~The Swirly Heart Flourish is from Paper Crafting World
Love their cute files!! It was inspired by the swirly material in the chairs.
~The Bling on the flourishes is from my stash and was inspired by the top of the tables!

Have a Scrappy Happy Day!
