2011 a year to remember - Au Revoir Nana - 1907-2011

I made 2 huge collages for Nanas' celebration of life. I am making a book for my mom with all these pictures. For our family, 2011 brought tears, laughter and many memories.

We were 5 living generations for 4 wonderful years. I made sure that my grandson Michael knew his Grand Nana and hope to cultivate the perfect relationship with him that I had with my Nana. She will always be with me as we are so much alike.

Using the Cricut to make stencils for acrylic paint

I absolutely love the Ballerina on Wall Decor and more and wish this was the designer that did Shall we Dance or even Twinkle Toes. The lines of this dancer is correct and I use her alot. Here is a little Big Sister Little Sister set that I did for my neighbors daughters. They can be washed with no problems.

40 Sucks but you're still sweet!

Birthday gift and card. I love to pick up candy themed items like lotions, soaps and such for gift baskets like this.

Cut Cricut vinyl for the letters on the plastic container. Printed messages in my color scheme of blue and yellow and carried the candy theme throughout. It was a fun project.

Are you ready for some football???

I am excited because my Patriots are going to the Superbowl.  These centerpieces were ordered for a High School Football banquet. 22 tables. The Football player and the pennant are cut from Sports Mania, the MC are cut from Varisity Letter and the year is from Designer Calendar. I used the 20 and the 11 so I only needed to weld 1 section. I used a cardboard cake circle and a foam square for my base and covered it with gold mylar. The footballs were purchased in the party section because they looked so real! I added green mylar star picks, green and gold mylar star garland and ribbon with little footballs on it. Stayed within their budget. Hope you like it. Go Mustangs!!!

This is the page I intend to redo with the new cuts available

Now that this young man turns 21 I want to redo some of the pages in the album I made him. I didn't have cartridges available with too many great cuts but I do now.This is 2 years before I got my first Cricut. Lets see what improvements I can make! I mostly used punches for this book.
