Sighting of the Week: Space Party

Today's Space Party sighting comes from Charity Hassel over at the Meaningful Menagerie. I remember seeing a few of these photos in the office before the cartridge was announced, and I absolutely fell in love with them. I glad I can finally share them with you.

First off, I have to say that I love the way she has photographed these projects. Especially this first one.  The rocket card looks great placed against the moon rock. And the constellation fabric makes the perfect backdrop. 


Nothing says "Space Party" more than this card. When I illustrated this robot, I did not visualize giving him a balloon, but it really works. I especially love the brads and sequins she added on his joints and chest.


I really like the patterned papers and color combination Charity used to create this card.


This photo showcases my cupcake holder and flag cupcake topper. I liked using a flag for the topper because it represents the flag that Neil Armstrong placed on the moon! I designed the flag so it folds around a toothpick.

Sighting of the Week: Camp Sweet Camp

One of the Cricut Circle designers that I love is Jana Eubank.  She has such a classy style and eye for matching papers and patterns.  Here are a couple of projects that she made using my Campin' Critters cartridge.


I like how she used my "Camp Sweet Camp" phrase sign as a tag.


Now who wouldn't want a to receive this bag of treats?


I loved this scrapbook page!  I love the mix of the wood grain papers with the bright colors.


Here is a close-up of 3 of my merit badges.  They really make cute page accents!


And here is a close-up of my "Gone Fishin'" sign.  The shape and layout for this sign was inspired by the wood National Forest Signs.

Sighting of the Week: Campin' with the Cricut Circle

Last week was Camping Adventure Week for the Cricut Circle. All week long they featured camping projects, most of which were made using my Campin' Critters cartridge. The Cricut Circle crafters are super creative, and I had to share with you some of my favorite projects from last week:

This first project features a S'more Kit, made using an old Blue Bunny plastic ice cream container. 



This next set of projects features a treat box that holds 4 plastic tubes filled with campin' snacks.  The treat box was made using my coworker's Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge.  The plastic tubes are held in place with two of his cupcake holder box inserts.





This next project features the "Summer Camp" badge on the front of my camp journal/mini album.  


And this last page layout uses 3 of my images as smaller page embellishments (group of trees, "camp" sign, and fire). The fire image is actually from one of my merit badges. I like how they have taken the pieces of the badge and made it into a stand alone embellishment.

Published in LogoLounge Master Library Vol. 3

Over the weekend I celebrated my 10th wedding anniversary. Last year, I designed a logo for me and my wife to include on her gift. I was pleased to find out that it was included in the most recent LogoLounge publication.

When I interviewed for my job with Provo Craft, I was asked to bring in my sketchbook. The pages that my "future" boss really liked were the sketches for this logo. I remember her finding it funny that I was hand drawing calligraphy. Here are a couple of those pages.
