The purpose of the following "book" was to take a film canister then add a moving element, a metal, and a natural element then have it tell a story. We made it to the top spun as the elements from the sea moved around it and you could read the poem about the beach as you twisted the top. We used the cricut cartridge - Doodlecharms to create the features of the sea.
This past weekend I finished up some projects I promised to finish up for some groups I belong to. I think they turned out pretty well, what do you think?
These Disney cuts are tough to make, the pieces can be very small - Cartridge - Cricut Disney Classic

I made our Cruise ship, then knowing that my dear Sister In Law really wanted a cruise ship too, I made the ship for my niece and then cut extra pieces with for my sister in law to create her own ship.
I used My Gypsy to write the names in the clouds to cut out and I used george and basic shapes to cut the little windows, and I used Stand and Salute to cut the Statue of Liberty which was the decoration with the ribbons on the side of their ship. I had to hand draw the ribbons and the NCL logo on the smoke stack.
I used a wide variety of cartridges to make the die cuts for Anna's cake,
Mr. and Mrs Potato Head were Toy Story
Santa Head was from Christmas Solutions
Princess from Happily Ever After and
Tinkerbell, from Tinkerbell and friends
Snowman from Hello Kitty
Hello Kitty Christmas characters from Hello Kitty
Santa, Mrs. Claus, wise men, deer, tree and gingerbread cookies from Paper Doll Dress Up
I will be adding directions however, this was created for Anna, my cousins friend that was having her first all out birthday party at the age of ummm... more than 10. Each wedge had a die cut that was created for the party attendees, hello kitty, camping equip, 4 wheelers, cute little characters, it is said that everyone LOVED the cake.
I came up with the design for these table toppers as a way to signify each year that Keenan was in school. I made a spread sheet to record each teacher, activity and special friends of the year, these were super cute and attractive. I used the Cricut Design Studio to weld the letters and numbers together however in the future I would create them on the Gypsy. After these books were used I glued them all together to make one large circle book for Keenan to keep as a memory.
I made these for my friend Lauren that Graduated from Bloomington Jefferson High School, she was a basketball manager and member of the Golf Team. I used Sports Mania to make the jacket, the original idea was used for Keenan when he received his first Varsity Letter as a junior, I then made one of these for each member of the Edina State Swim team on their 3rd State Title. Eventually I will get the original posted.
