Welcome Deanne

This is the first project posted by my Design Team Member Deanne.

Deanne is a fun-loving and energetic person that is completely addicted to all things Scrapbooking.  We affectionately refer to her as our Sister Paper ho!  Her one of a kind laugh can brighten even the gloomiest day and she is often found cheerfully helping customers at the Roberts Arts & Crafts store in Sandy where she is the Assistant Manager.  She has many crafting skills but I think you will agree with me that she is a Pro at the YuDu personal screen printing machine.  She has created many a shirt that others can't wait to wear and I am happy she has joined the Creative Cutter Team as my Facebook Administrator, YuDu expert and my BFF!!!  Help me welcome her by posting a comment and let her know what kinds of YuDu projects you would like to see.
Here is the Recipe to create your own Twilight T-Shirt

   t-shirt of your choice
   Yudu machine
   Yudu silver paint
   transparency paper (so you can print image)

For this shirt I downloaded a logo and printed it out on a transparency sheet. Some of the image printed out a light color instead of black so I used a sharpie to fill in the parts that were not black. (a sharpie writes on the transparency better than a slick writer). I took this image and burned it on the Yudu mesh screen. Once my screen was finished I used the silver paint to pull the image onto the shirt.

Next week we will introduce you to Wendy or Cricut Project Diva!!!

CHA time again

Well CHA (craft and hobby show) is in Chicago this year and already the web if floaded with a ton of sneak peaks and new paper lines, flowers, dies, stamps, glimmer mist and stickles colors.  I will try to post a couple of interesting items or products that you might find interesting.  My first one today is from Creative Imaginations:  Cuttable Wood (yes I will sacrafice a Cricut blade trying this one out!)  The sample they created with it is not that cute but I know if it is Cricut Cuttable we can think of some fun & cute things we could possibly make.  If its too thick then maybe it will make a good mini album???  Click HERE to access the link.
For those that have the I-Top already this might be a fun addition.  I know alot of you have a magnet board that you have Scrapped so this might work out really nicely to update our Calendars this year.  Click HERE to see Magnet Daddy's.

YUDU Classes

I've have done a couple of private classes but now its time to make it official.  Deanne & I will team up to hold workshops and project classes in the CCR Studio.  We will work out the details this weekend so look for a post next week where we will release some dates, times & cost.  Come and learn how to make the best of this Fun to use machine---my teens have loved being able to create one of a kind projects and even used it to help a neighbor ask his date out for Prom last year.  Post a comment on the types of projects or workshops you would like to see  we will definately work them into the Plan.

Trimmer Giveaway

This is the last week to become a follower & post a comment to be entered for your chance to win a WeR Twist Trimmer.  This is a new product and worth trying out---so don't forget to leave a comment on this post or the prior WIN THIS TRIMMER post for your chance to win.  Only comments from Followers will be entered into Random Drawing.  Thanks for Playing along!!!

Guest Design Team Member Challenge

So sketchy thursday gave us this sketch
and I created this layout
They asked us to use yellow and my background bee paper from Dear Lizzy collection was yellow. They also asked us to make one hand made embellishment.  I made the green organza flowers above the beehive.  These flowers are made melting fabric until you have a rose pattern.  I of course also had to use my Cricut and cut the Beehive and Title using Sentimentals and Stone Script.  I call this page SWEET AS HONEY.

Brothers $6.00 kit

I want to start posting affordable page kits that can be purchased either completed or as a kit with a color copy of finished idea.  These layouts will cost $6.00 as a pre-cut kit or $7.00 for an assembled layout.  Hopefully this covers all types of scrapbookers:  those that want a kit they can modify to their needs or those that don't have time and just want to add pictures and call it DONE.  These kits will include only high quality products all AF/LF. I believe in quality and keeping up with Trends so these kits should reflect what is being done with scrapbooking now.  I hope you enjoy these kits.

Ice Cream Layout

I created this layout for a Design Team entry and for the Fatabulouos Cricut: Challenge Blog
Challenge #18

Cool Yummy Treat or Optional Shape Card

As you can see I went with an Ice Cream Layout. Sooooo yummy!!! I used Cricut Cartridges Indie Art, Potpourri Basket & George to Create Title & IceCream.  I used Matte Accents to create ice cream texture and cone dimension.

Deanne:   Will be designing some great YUDU projects for you to try.  If you have seen her Scrapbooking T-Shirts or Twililght T-shirts you know how creative she is!

Wendy:    Will  be designing some great projects with all your favorite Cricut Cartridges.  Her work is fun and inspiring and will give you a good idea of which cartridges you want to own.  You will love her versatility!

I will continue to design layouts, cards, mini albums and various other projects to share with all of you but now I will be able to post even more Creative Cutter Recipes!!!
