Remember the game Battleship?
This is so helpful on Animal Kingdom, Create a Critter and the 2 Paper Dolls cartridges.

This is from the Christmas Solutions Cricut Cartridge.

Used the flower that was cut from the hippo's bum to add to the inside of the card for a nice touch.
My son has informed me just now that it's missing something. Googley eyes!

detail cuts for the dots on the wings and just used bling. This was a card
that went with a present. It would be very chunky to mail.
I think everything was purchased at Joann's. Coor-dination's paper and some
really old flower bling from the dollar bin.

Made this for my sister's 50th birthday last year. I wish I would have picked better contrasting colors but it still looked great in person. My flash washed out the colors. 50 flowers on skewers with a bite of chocolate in the center of each one. All flowers were done with a Cricut Cartridge.
The Happy Birthday and 50 Bites were with SCAL

The Happy Birthday Natalie is a combination of the Gypsy Wanderings font for the upper case letter and Plantin Schoolbook for the lower case.
The lighter pink is some eye-popping pink from an old paper pack from ages ago. The front page is DCWV Winter or Spring cardstock stack from just over a year ago.
Once again, I cut the base paper 6x12 and then joined it end to end with a double sided tape. This was cut on the 12x24" mat in one piece.
I created this card using Design Studio and the frog from Paper Dolls. He's the princess' frog on page 47. By welding the frog I was able to eliminate the detail cuts. I also hid the eyes so they wouldn't cut by clicking hide. Hoppy Birthday is from Lyrical Letters. At 1 inch this was way too delicate to work with. I'd prefer a more sturdy font in the future. The front of the card is the same frog glued over the base in the pearly green textured paper.
The base of the card is made with a green paper I had on hand out of a unknown pack. The front was made with Core-dinations from J's. Gemstone's "Jade" I cut the base paper to 6x12 and then used double sided tape to make a strip of paper 6x23.5" long. The entire folded card was cut out at one time. The Cricut cut through all the layers pretty cleanly.
A couple googley eyes and an upturned smile that I filled in with a marker turned him into a very happy frog.

"Little Lord Fontleroy" I cut vinyl and adhered it to the glass. I covered the velvet backer board with some scrapbook paper via Scotch double sided tape in several place. Added the cut from A Child's Year as well as the baby stats. A bit of ribbon was added a the top. The hardest part was cutting the baby stats down and then creating the right size of matting. I am not well practiced at this.
Using SCAL 2 is great for the title. You can center align the two rows effortlessly and size it exactly. I cut the vinyl, weeded it and transferred the whole thing using transfer tape in 1 step. That way there wouldn't be any uneven lettering. It may seem like your not conserving vinyl but you are after you throw out a couple pieces due to mistakes!
A very simple but remarkable gift. This shadow box is only 8x10 which is a great size. If you put paper on the back, you don't have to layer or splice two sheets and hide it with ribbon.
