"Pimp my Scraproom" 2011 Goal

My Scraproom is in dire need of a makeover. I can't even craft in there as all flat surfaces are occupied. I would love your ideas and input... OR, if you would like to just come and do it for me, that would be awesome!!! ;-)

My 2011 Goal is to Oranize my Scraproom.

Christmas Sock Cupcakes

These sock cupcakes are so quick and easy to make....and oh so cute!!! I used the cupcake wrapper on the Cricut Easter Seasonal Cartridge and then stamped it with Close To My Heart Feathery Flakes stamp set. I found the socks at Wal-Mart. I used a pompom for the cherry on top.

Cricut Pink Elmo For Diaper Bag

My daughter's boyfriend wanted an Elmo diaper bag for my new granddaughter, so I just had to volunteer to create them a one-of-a-kind diaper bag. I used the running Elmo from Elmo's Party cartridge cut at 7 1/2 inches. Heat 'n Bond was used to secure the layers as well as attach to the diaper bag.

Bib Baby Shower Invite

I made this Baby Shower Bib invitation for my daughter who is expecting my first grandbaby any day now... I used Mini Monograms cart for the scalloped circle then cut the "neckline" of the bib with the CM Circle cutter. I used the Swiss Dot Embossing Folder on the bib. The adorable elephant was cut from the New Arrival cart. Diamond Dust Stickles were used on the toenails, and the google-eyes made this elephant even cuter!!!

My daughter needed an ASAP card for a girlfriend's bday party. Her friend collects hippos, so couldn't resist this adorable hippo from the Animal Kindom cart. This was a quick and super simple card.

PILLOW BOX treat box

I used the PillowBox on the Easter 2010 Cricut cart, then cut the present image out right over the top of the bunny that is "automatic" on this pillowbox. I used a background stamp to add texture then adhered acetate to the inside of the box to cover the hole for the present. I used Doodlecharms to cut out the tag. I loaded the pillow box with and gave them as treat boxes for my daughters bday party!!!

Fast and fun!!!!!
