4th of July Fantabulous Cricut Crawl

Fantabulous Cricut


Welcome to My Cards N Stuff and the 4th of July Fantabulous Cricut Crawl - Fantabulous Cricut's version of a Blog Hop!!

In honor of the 4th of July holiday, we're having a Red, White and Blue Crawl.  Each Design Team member has created a fabulous project using Red, White and Blue as the main colors, and of course at least one Cricut cut!

If you've come from LB at Cool Beans by L.B., you're in the right place!  If you've just happened across my blog and would like to see all the fabulous Design Team creations head on over to Fantabulous Cricut HERE to start at the beginning.

Make sure to check out each DT member's blog!  There will be Blog Candy along the way at some of our DT members' blogs, and there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant who submits a "Save the Earth" project at FCCB!

For my project I made a card using the Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge. It's an old one but great to use when you want to make a child image of any kind. 


It's also great for using up scraps. The only part I used a whole piece of paper on was the doll itself, all of the rest of the cuts were scraps. She was cut at 4" and the other pieces all just cut to the correct size automatically as long as "real dial size" is off (love that!). I used Stickles on her shoes to make them sparkle and added a little bling on the ribbon. The background was embossed with an embossing folder. My nephew had a new baby a couple of weeks ago and I'm going to send this to her big sister for the 4th.

Blog Candy!!

I got my Webster's Pages box last week and thought I'd share some of it (and a bit of the last box) with one lucky crafter. The papers are 6x6 and there are some journaling cards to go with them. There will also be a couple of other little things thrown in just for fun! All you have to do is comment on this post, I will draw the winner on Friday, July 5. If you would like to become a follower that would be great, but it's not required. Good luck!

Your next stop is Michelle at Just ANutter paper crafter.  Make sure to visit all the stops along the way and when you get done, make sure you link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post!!

Happy Crawling!!

  5. Cute card and so sweet of you to think of your older great-niece. Sometimes with all the hub-bub of a new baby, the older ones get kind of lost in the shuffle.

    I did become a follower because I like your blog.

  13. A cute card, it should help the big sister feel special. Even though Everyday Paper Dolls is an old cartridge, it is still one of the most versatile.
