Cricut Shape card - FRIEND

My current crafty GIVE-AWAY is here!

Let's get in shape!

The Joy's Life design team are creating SHAPE cards this week! 
Be sure to follow along on the team blog for inspiration daily! 

I used the weld feature in the Cricut Craft Room to create 
the base for my shape card using the letters (shadow font) in 
Basics the free cart available when you download CCR.

I chose my letters, pushed them together until the weld feature appeared, then duplicated my word and flipped it to weld both words together. 

Separate letters were cut for my top layer.

Welcome to this month's 
Blog Hop!

The Joy's Life design team is coming at you in 3D this month! The hop starts @ JoysLife.com!

What's Shakin'? Spice Up Your Next Picnic!

Next time you're invited
to a picnic or bar-b-q 
create a gift for the host 
that will spice things up!

My hubby made me a variety of wooden boxes from scraps of old weathered wood.  I have found many uses for them.  This one was made for holding spices by the grill. 

Joy's Life stamps (That Tastes Punny)
Stampin' Up Craft ink, Ranger embossing powder,
vinyl, Cricut Craft Room basic cart -freebie!

I stamped my Joy's Life sentiment, "What's Shakin'?" in Stampin' Up's white Craft ink then heat embossed it...that really made the white pop! I then used my Cricut along with the basic cartridge that comes with the Cricut Craft Room downloaded software to cut my letters.  

A super easy project that will hopefully bring a smile!

Do you enjoy making little gifts for your party hosts?
