Jenny's Big Birthday Bolg-aversary


Welcome to Jenny's Big Birthday Blog-aversary!!

If you are joining me from

http://www.youhadmeatcraft.com/

you are in the right place!


If you just happened across my blog and

would like to play along with our fun hop,

you can go to Crazy About Cricut at

http://crazyaboutcricut.blogspot.com/

and start at the beginning.


My friend Jenny over at Crazy About Cricut

is celebrating her Birthday Blog-aversary.

Each of us blogger were asked to create

a project using some type of halloween

themed cartridge. Because Halloween is

Jenny's favorite holiday. Be sure to visit each

blog for fun and different ways to use

Halloween theme cartridges but, not

look like Halloween.


My first project was made by starting off

with a $1.00 bucket from Target. And using

the Mini Monsters cartridge. I cut the princess

out at 4 inches and the frog at 1 inch. I ran the

princesses hat and dress through the cuttlebug

using the swiss dots folder. I also used white

iridescent chalk on her outfit. The sunshine is

cut out from the Birthday Bash cartridge and

was cut at 2 1/4 inches. I filled the bucket

with shredded colored tissue paper. Then

added lots of fun girly out side toys and of

course lots of candy.


I love how simple and easy this was to
make. What little girl wouldn't want a
gift like this. (or even a big girl)


I also decided to try out the card feature
on Mini Monsters. The frog was cut out
at 5 inches and was so easy to put together.

I hope you enjoyed my projects.
