Eagle Scout Cake Toppers

Hello Friends,

Today I have to share with you another project made for my son's Eagle Scout Court of Honor.  I made some cup cake toppers for his cup cakes, They will be what I will be serving at his event for the desert.  Take a look at them below.

So as I have said before, Eagle Scout is a great honor and the highest rank for
boy scouts.  These toppers are a part of the Scout Law with the words on the 
back.  A scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous ,kind, obedient, cheerful,
thrifty,brave, clean and reverent.

I cut the circles at 2 inches and placed the words inside them using 
Design space and then I changed the colors to match the theme of red
white and blue. Then I used the print then cut feature and my Explore 
to cut and print them out.

Next step I did the exact thing to make the front of the toppers.
I used an image from the Be Prepared cartridge for scouting.
I changed the back ground color from yellow to red again keeping to my 

I then got some tooth pics and added the two circles together
with some glue inserted the tooth pic between them and this is the finished product.
I think they will be cute on the cup cakes.  I will share pictures after his celebration is over.

Get inspired today and make something great.

Hello Crafter's

Today I am sharing a fall craft now that we are getting into the fall season and it is October.

I made a wreath using some some fall leaves from garland
I purchased form Michael's they had a 60% off on all of there fall
decor and I took advantage.

Using some hot glue and ribbon I covered the white wreath so
that you would not see the white coming through.  I purchased the 
ribbon from Hobby Lobby on the clearance rack for $ 2.00.

I also used another  string of garland that has
some jewels, pine cones and berries on it I got from Michaels.

A closer look at the pine cone and berries.
So what do you think, a home made wreath for under 10.00 using a 
coupon on the wreath and the other items for 60% off.
Get inspired today and make a fall home decor project.

Pink Linky Challenge

Hello Friends,

Today I am sharing a card that I made for a challenge for Breast Cancer awareness.
Take a look and let me know what you think.

This card was made for a challenge over on DL ART blog and you can find the challenge
here.  We were to make a project for Breast Cancer Awareness .
 This is a A2 size card I used the Pink Journey cartridge for the pink breast cancer ribbon and for the work courage. 

                        I also used on this card some diamond sticklers for the bling on the word courage.
                        I used pink dots from CTMH.
                        And pink ribbon from my stash.  I cut a piece of pink car stock which I purchased                                 from Hobby Lobby card stock @ 2 inches by 5 inches for word courage to sit on.

Side view of the card.  A sneak peek of something inside.

                       I also cut a butter fly from the pink journey cartridge to finish the inside of the card.
                       I used my diamond stickles again on the butter fly to give it some shine.  I left it blank
                       so that I can add a personal note.
                        I hope they find a cure for this terrible disease.  Be inspired today and make                                         something that will show your support.

Eagle Scout Banners

Hello Friends,

I know it has been a while sense my last post, but I have been working on some craft items for my son. He is getting ready to become an Eagle Scout so my focus has been there.  I have made several things for his Court of honor which is a big celebration after he obtains his Eagle rank.  Take a look below.

So on this banner I used my Cricut Explore to cut and Design space 
to design it.  The Cartridge used was Over the hill and I cut the banners @
11 inches tall.  The letters were cut from the Cricut Alphabet.  I liked the
way they looked with this.  The letters spell out 
" On My Honor" which is from the boy scout oath.

The colors were chosen Red, White, Blue to represent the United States Flag.
This is the Bald Eagle which is also a representation of the US.
This was cut from the Be prepared cartridge for boy scouts.  
I used the print then cut feature on this and cut it at 6 inches and used the shadow 
feature and cut it in black for backing.

For this banner set I cut it with the Boy Scout Be Prepared cartridge also at
6 inches.  It looks better in person.  I had to use my flash on my camera 
and it did not come out that well.

I also used some red,white,and blue twine that I purchased from 
Hobby lobby by Tim Holtz idea-ology.  The same as the other banner.

A closer look at the eagle, it will be used on his display table for 
his memorabilia from his scouting journey.  I hope you like these banners.

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for other crafts made for my sons big day.
