Cute As Can Bee

Don't you just love the new Teddy Bear Parade cart? This little bee is just adorable.

For this layout I used a 3.5 inch bear and little bee accessories from Teddy Bear Parade Cart. 2 little bees from Pooh and Friends cart were cut at 1 inch and the font is from Cricut Craft Room basics (and embossed with swiss dots). I used my Fiskars Threading Water punch for the border and found some rather 'Cheerful' Creative Memories paper in my stash.

I am planning on making my own Christmas cards this year ( I say that every year and then a week before Christmas I am running around town buying cards to post before the cut off date.. tee hee hee). Anyways, the Santa Bear, Elf Bear & Reindeer Bear on the Teddy Parade cartridge are soo cute. I have already cut out a few and it's only September!! I'm off to a good start. Go Me!!! Pin It

Happy Birthday with Create A Critter 2

I just love this little pig from the new Cricut cartridge - Create A Critter 2. I so cannot wait for it to reach New Zealand. I think it may be better than the original. I had a ball with the few free images that were in Cricut Craft Room. I wish I had of cut more.

For these 8x8 layouts I cut the pigs at 3.5 inches, the title at 2 inches, the little cupcake at 1.75 inches and the balloons at 2.5 inches.

The scalloped circle is from Cricut Craft Room Basics and is cut at 2 inches.

I used the DCWV Celebration stack with the pink and blue layout and a scrap of cupcake paper that I've had forever in the purple layout.

Thanks for stopping by.
