Die Cuttin' Divas Anything Goes Challenge



Tuesday is here again, and time for a new challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas!

This week the challenge is Anything Goes.





Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is Love Bug Creations!


For my projects, I'd like to share some of my creations for my granddaughters 4th birthday party.
She decided she wanted to have a Mermaid party, which was perfect for summer and the pool.

The first project I'd like to share is some sand buckets which we used to hold Goldfish Crackers and Pop Corn. I cut the birthday fishes out with my Cameo using Silhouette Studio cut files. I cut all the pieces out of vinyl.

I also used vinyl to cut out mermaid silhouettes for these drink bottles which I bought at Dollar Tree. They were 2 for $1!!!!



I made a large version of her pop-up mermaid invitation as a centerpiece for the table.
Cut the shell from poster board and then glued all the enlarged card stock pieces to the poster board shell.



For the cupcake toppers I cut mermaid tails from glitter card stock!


I put some "Crabs" eyes on some of the crescent roll sandwiches. Just punched some red circles and added giant google eyes.


To create the banner I used some blue stripped banner pieces I bought at Target. The letters were cut with my Silhouette using a font called Underwater Love.


A mermaid silhouette on either side of her name.


I tied some twine around the napkins with a Lifesaver hanging from it.



And last I made Mermaid Wands. Glued starfish to a wooden dowel with some pretty ribbon tied to it. A rhinestone gem glued to the starfish for some sparkle.


And made some tridents for the boys.


Put them all in a little metal bucket I purchased at Target for $1, that I had filled with sand.


My granddaughter loved it all!!!

Now pop on over to Die Cuttin' Divas and see all the fabulous inspiration the rest of the design team has come up with.

Hope to see you playing along with us!!!!

Die Cuttin' Divas Christmas in July Challenge



I don't know about you, but in the midst of all this sunshine and warm weather, for me, it's hard to think about Christmas. But that is what we'd like you to do over at Die Cuttin' Divas, because this week the challenge is Christmas in July.





Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is Love Bug Creations!


For my project, I decided to showcase a little lollipop holder that would be great to make if you have children in school. It's very simple, with only a few cuts, and goes together quickly. 

Such a fun way to hand out treats to all the boys and girls in your childs class.





Supplies used: card stock - black, white, 2 shades of brown, red; Silhoutte Studio cut file.


Now pop on over to Die Cuttin' Divas and see all the fabulous inspiration the rest of the design team has come up with.
