Slumber Party Cricut Lite Rockstar Card


So I wanted to do a little something different for my niece, Kelly, who is having a graduation party next week.  I am known in the family as being "a little different" so I created this cute little card for her letting her know she is a ROCKSTAR in my book!  I wish nothing but success to her as she pursues her dream of becoming a register nurse.

To create this I used the new Slumber Party Cricut Lite.  I am focusing on creating new cards this month with just this one to show versatile it really is!

Secondly, all I can say is congrats to Provo  Craft  for listening to your customer's feedback!  The instructions breaking down all the layers is the best yet!  And I love the plastic VHS storage box!  Super easy to use!

The image used was the girl skull and I did nothing but press the buttons...since my niece is all about the bling, I added 2 crystal gemstones for the eyes.  The stamp I used was from My Favorite Stamps set Chica.

I do come across an size maxium, for creating a card and custom envelop, you can only go as high as 4 1/2 inches, otherwise the sizing will be to big for the custom envelop.  IF you are not going to create an envelop using the Cricut Lite you can create the image as big as you like!

Enjoy my Punky Friends!

July CD Insert

This was a super easy cd insert to create this month!  

  • To create this cd insert, I went to PCCarfter.com for the Fourth of July image.
  • I printed the image and used Stickles by Ranger: Xmas red and embellied the red stripes.
  • I also used some blue, silver and yellow glitter glue for all the other little areas.
  • Once it was dried, I cut the image out.
  • I used fireworks background paper which was purchased at Hobby Lobby!  I thought it was a perfect backdrop to my little Stars and Spangles little man!
  • I used  1 1/2 scallop punch (red cardstock)
  • I used a 1 1/2 circle punch for patriotic blue
  • I used a dollar stamp purchased at Joannes (firecracker) of course you can use any stamp that you may already have! 
  • Lastly add the little star at the top!
 Drop us a comment, we would love to hear your feedback!

Have a happy and safe Fourth of July weekend!
