Create a Critter

  I got the adorable Create a Critter cartridge for my birthday last year and haven't done more than a few projects with it. I LOVE it, but sometimes going to that "cutesy" place is hard for me. I decided to YouTube some inspiration and found some really nice projects. I was particularly inspired by Jana Eubanks' 25 Ways to Embellish Cricut Cuts:

  I created two cards this week using Create Critter and tried to use a few of Jana's ideas. On the first I used chalk and patterned paper:

I love using my scrap box to create Cricut projects! The inside of this one reads, "I Hope Your Day is Just Ducky!"

The second uses stamping, doodling, chalk, and copics:

The inside of this one reads, "Oh, Snap! I Missed Your Birthday!"

I do love the puns!

Hope you are having a lovely weekend, and I hope Jana inspires you to move a little outside your box too! 


  1. Those are adorable!...totally outside your usual style, so nice job on challenging yourself. Are the clouds on the background embossed? Is that a part of the cartridge? Way cool! I LOVE that crab with that sentiment. So cute.

  2. Thanks, sis!! The embossing folder is in the spring Stampin' Up catalog. I think it's called Cloudy Day.
