HoHoHo Glass Block

I am definitely getting into the holiday spirit a little early.  I decided to design a fun holiday glass block.  HoHoHo Glass Block ~ Holiday Glass Block ~Artiste ~ CatScrapbooking.comThe HoHoHo is from the Artiste cartridge.  I did a bit of slicing in order to make the middle “Ho” its own cut.  This way I could make it two tone.  The snowflakes are from Artistry.  I added the fake snow and a mini strand of lights.  I am really pleased the way this turned out.

Happy Crafting!

ABC’s Blog Hop ~ C

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog hop!

ABC's Blog HopFor this hop we will be featuring the letter “C”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “C” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at LINDA’S BLOG ~ SCRAPPY THERAPY .  If you just came from Linda’s Blog then you are in the right place.

For my “C” I chose my Cricut and Disney’s Cars Cartridge.  I have been working on my son room since we moved.  He is all boy and loves all cars, trucks and trains.  So I have been working on one wall at a time but I have been cutting vinyl vehicles to decorate his room.  I still had one wall left to decorate.  I have cut all the previous vehicles with my Silhouette but since I got the Cricut Explore I decided to try cutting vinyl with it.  Well it worked like a gem and I got carried away.

It was really a lot of fun putting these together albeit a little tedious.  There were a lot of layers to some of the designs.  Here is a close up to two of the characters.

Valenties Glass Block

I received a tip from some fellow crafters that some of the holiday glass blocks at Lowe’s were on sale for $1 the beginning of January.  Thankfully some of them posted their receipts so I was able to show this and get my Lowe’s to price match.  (I will admit it was not the easiest task because it really depends on who you talk to.  I talked to 5 different Lowe’s employees and only two said it was possible.) Any way I was able to score 10 of these!!!

Since then I have been looking on Pinterest to see what my first glass block project was going to be.  I decided on Valentines, since Feb 14th is just around the corner.

Valentine's BlockI have been having a lot of fun with vinyl and my new Cricut Explore!! For this project used the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge.  I used the pocket card image on pg 30 Love Life.  I modified it in the design studio enlarging and rotating the heart.  I also added the “be mine”.  I really love the way this turned out.  I filled it with two of the larger bags of sweethearts.

Happy crafting!
