I needed to send a thank you note out to a special person and decided it was worth taking the time to make a lovely card. I used Bazzill Basics Herbal Garden colored card stock, a red satin ribbon, clear hot rocks and my Cricut along with the Trim The Tree Cartridge to make it. It is so festive I am loving it.


For Halloween this year I thought I would declare my love for the Cricut Cake! I had to think of a costume that I can wear easily while toting two youngsters around and still do all things I need to do. So I knew it had to be something cute but practical. To make one yourself read on.


1. I used my Cricut Cake baker’s hat from CHA January 2010 as a starting point.

2. I cut utensils, cupcakes and cake slices out of Bazzill Basics card stock on my Cricut. I used the Sweet Treats Cartridge and the From My Kitchen Cartridge to cut the shapes.

3. I added Glimmer Mist to the utensils to give them a pink shine. I also, added some sharpie marker to the front cake to make it stand out.

4. Next, I glued the pieces together with a tacky glue and then hot glued them to the baker’s hat.

5. I finished off the costume my adding the Cricut Cake Apron.

Special Note: Thanks Sarah for modeling in the costume with the Cricut Cake machine.

Gift sets are fun to make for your gal pals. This project is a paper box and paper roller skates cut from Bazzil Basics Paper on the Cricut and embossed on the Cuttlebug. Craft foam was added to the roller skates for the wheels. The  nail polish and lip gloss have vinyl on them cut from the Cricut and then drawn on with a Wite-out marker. As an added bonus there is a Shrinky Dink charm cut on the Cricut and drawn on with Sharpie makers. For the complete tutorial click here: Paper Gift Box Set Happy Crafting – xoxo Lovely Lula


With the kids starting back to school you can finally catch up on that stack of Summer reading you thought you would get to. That means take some time to hand craft yourself a lovely bookmark to tuck into the stack of books. I made this one for the Creative Escape SWAPs that happened in Chandler, AZ over the weekend. I used Bazzill Basics Paper in White, Raven Black and Navajo Blue. For the embossing I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder called Typeset. For the Chair I used the Cricut Heritage Cartridge. Then I Razzel Dazzeled it up by gluing on a black button at the bottom and attaching three black hot rocks with my irock to the chair. For the step by step click here: Paper Bookmark How To
