FCCB Deck the Hall Crawl!

Hi everyone! Angji here.

Welcome to Sweet Pineapple Scrapping and the third Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop!

In honor of the approaching holidays, we're having a "Deck The Halls" Crawl. Each Design Team member will be featuring an original holiday-themed project that could be used to decorate and spruce up their homes for the holiday season.

If you've come from visiting Angela's blog at Simple Creations Paper Crafts, you're in the right place. If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE .

Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome holiday inspiration. There will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Deck The Halls" project at FCCB!

For my project I made a wall hanging. With my trusty Gypsy and a 12x24 mat I was able to make the project fairly quickly. Lookie:

First I chose a banner and horn from Happily Ever After. Next, I welded together the phrase using Ashlyn's Alphabet for ease of cutting and placement. I wanted the banner to look almost like a crest so I added a layered snowflake from Joys of the Season.

I wanted this piece to be stable and long lasting so I cut the base piece out of chipboard and cardstock. I used two colors of cardstock for this project, white and green. Everything that was cut in white I heat embossed with sparkly gold embossing powder, except for the second snowflake layer I embossed with sparkly silver. Two coats for every piece. This really shines in real life let me tell you!

Some curling ribbon in holiday colors and silver Glimmer Mist finished off my project and it was ready for the door.

Now it's your turn! Let's see your holiday themed decor projects! Make sure to include a Cricut cut somewhere on your project.

Next stop is Brenda's blog at Brenda's Scrappy Blog. Go see what she has in store for you today. When you're done, make sure to link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post to be entered into the contest!

Good luck and thank you for visiting today!

Fantabulous Cricut-Gifts Galore!

Hi everyone! Our challenge this week at Fantabulous Cricut was to create a handmade gift or gift package. Again, my mojo has gone into hiding and I struggled for a bit to come up with an idea. But, I finally had a brainwave used the open circle card cut from Smiley Cards as a photo magnet! Brilliant if I do say so myself! Lookie:

Since I used my Gypsy I don't remember what size I cut these out at but I can look it up and post that information later. By sheer good luck, I sized these cards perfectly to fit slightly larger than my Giga (purple) circle punch. Add some glue and lots of glitter, plunk magnets on the back and you're finished! I'm toying with the idea of adding a dimensional glaze on top of the whole thing. What do you all think? Would it be too much?

Thanks for stopping by!
