Baby Girl Sketch Card

November is here and with it a new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas. Each month we work with a great sketch and hope you can join us this week with the new one.
I made this card after finding out my co-worker was going to have a baby girl.  We had our fingers crossed for her. The sketch seemed like a perfect fit for this one.
I started with some fun patterned paper in my large stash and made the die cut  to go on top of that. I wanted the sentiment to a pretty font and this one is actually form a cut in Wrap It up that I just flattened and printed onto the flag.
I really loved this card and so did the mommy to be.  I hope you get a chance t play with this fun sketch this week.  The Divas look forward to seeing what you create.

Anything Goes Unplugged

Happy Tuesday and day before Halloween for those of you that celebrate.  This is a 5th Tuesday of the month and that means the challenge for Die Cuttin' Divas is Anything Goes. I made a large wall display in the hallway at my school for this challenge.
This year I will be directing a play called Unplugged by Laurie Bryant. This show is about getting taking a break from our reliance on technology - especially social media.  I love the cover of the script, but wanted to change it up from headphones and show something that we need to unplug from.
I found a great graphic with the "D" as a plug and I recreated it using basic shapes attached to my very large (7 inch) letters.  I also made a tablet style device to attach to a cord. The cored had to be cut into 5 sections in order to make it.
I was so happy with how it turned out and it is working well - many students have stopped to look at it or come see me with question about the meeting the wall is advertising. I am sure to have many other play related projects in the next coming months.

Thanks for visiting today and I hope you can join us for the Anything Goes Challenge.

Pizza My Heart

Whose hungry?  I sometimes feel like I am always hungry or thinking about food so that makes this week's challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas perfect for me! This week our theme is FOOD!!
I search for food items in Cricut Design space and this slice made me think of a great card  to make. It was super fun putting the happy slice together and changing some of the pieces out to have harts on the pizza and in the larger word cut.
A little print and cut action to add in the rest of the sentiment for the card and it all went together fast.
I hope you get a snack (I know I need one) and get some time to join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week and our food challenge.

Trick or Treat Box with Die Cuttin' Divas

Happy Tuesday all. I just got done with a 3 day weekend and of course I really needed a 4 day one to get all the things I wanted to get done..done! One thing I did get to do was create some simple treat boxes for my daughter's dance sisters. This is perfect because the challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas is 3D projects!!
This year the company girls have fun activities to do with/for their sisters each month and for Halloween it is to share a treat. I found a cute pumpkin to use on the box and went searching for some papers before cutting out the box and pumpkin.
I got everything put together, but before attaching the pumpkins to my boxes I decided to make them wobble for fun. Always a fun addition and this pumpkin was made to wobble I think.
I hope you all are having a great start to the week and that you get a chance to join us this week at Die Cuttin' Divas.  3D projects are always great for simple treats and with Halloween around the corner I know I need a few.

Fight Like a Girl Sketch Card with Die Cuttin' Divas

It is the first Tuesday of October and the first Tuesday always means a new sketch with Die Cuttin' Divas. For this sketch I worked on a card for another October staple, Breast Cancer awareness Month.
 I started with the papers and created the base of this great sketch from Carson's Creations.
Once I had all the papers done I cut out my image and stamped my sentiment  onto the right spots to complete the looks. I added my boxer on with an action wobble to make her fight stronger.
To anyone fighting Breast Cancer I wish you well and know lots of people are in your corner.  I hope others can join us at Die Cuttin' Divas for our sketch challenge this week.

Fall Colors with Die Cuttin' Divas

Have the fall colors started to pop out in your area?  We are still waiting around here.  It has been very warm the last few weeks so maybe soon. The Divas are ready for those fall colors and it is our challenge this week - use fall colors.
I found this fun tire swing cut and thought it would look great with some fall colored papers. I really liked the leaves on the backing paper and I really wanted to play with mix and match patterns.
Once I had it all cut out I decided to make the tree pop just a little bit - with all these patterns it needed to stand out more.
It was a fun card to make and it made me get in the mood for fall - apple picking, raking leaves and of course Halloween & Thanksgiving.  I hope you have some fall things to look forward to as well and can join us at Die Cuttin' Divas for this challenge.
