CWC Taste of Summer Blog Hop

Welcome to Cooking with Cricut Taste of Summer Blog Hop!! 
If you came from Court's Craft Corner  you are heading the right direction. If not stop by CWC site so you can get on hoping along! Today's hop is all about the "flavors" of summer. Being a California girl the best part of summer here is all the fresh fruit!! LOOOVEEE stopping by my favorite corner stand and picking up some fresh strawberries, watermelon or cherries, nothing beats fresh fruit on a hot summer day! Nothing except of course ICE CREAM!!!

With that in mind I created today's project. I wanted to capture all the "flavors" I love, but I would have ended up with a dozen cards LOL so I opted to make a few mini cards that can be used as tags or as mini cards for different occasions.

I used Doodle Charms cartridge for the ice cream and watermelon, I used preserves for the strawberries and the lime wedge. The lime wedge was actually supposed to be a watermelon slice, but I wanted to make a lemon slice to use as a tag for a margarita gift set, so I just change the colors and made it a LIME, loved how it turned out. The shiny accents are liquid pearls. 

Thanks for stopping by! Now head on over Janet's Blog and check out the delicious summer project she has for you. Have an awesome weekend!

CWC Cartridge Showcase: Nates ABC

Welcome to another edition of  Cooking with Cricut cartridge showcase!!!  This time around I am showing you some projects using the stylish and very boy-chic NATE"S ABC

This cartridge is full of cute and stylish images that are geared for boy projects. However, you can always substitute the blues on some of those and make the cutest girl themed projects as well. Since I have a handsome little boy and no girls, I opted to stay with the boyish theme colors, I really like the color palette they used on the sample images, very subtle and cuuuuute!

For my first card I used the cute little snail and created an easel card. 

For this project my son got to pick the colors and since green is his favorite color we went with different shades of green.  For this one I used the doggy treats title, but since the cut only has one color for both words, I cut the phrase 3 times and manually cut the letters so I could use the different shades of green. 

For my second card I wanted to make it girly but still stay with the color scheme of the cartridge.  I used a bright orange as the accent color and used a flowery background from Imaginisce to add a little girlish flair. 

Thank you for stopping by, hope you enjoyed the projects I brought for you. Please feel free to share your projects using this gorgeous cartridge.
