Welcome to Saxey Designs and the EIGHTH Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a Blog Hop!
Summer is coming to an end and we are all getting ready for BACK TO SCHOOL...each Design Team member will be featuring an original BACK TO SCHOOL Project that includes a SCHOOL RELATED Item, such as crayons, rulers, pencils, book, school bus, etc. along with at least ONE Cricut Cut.
If you've come from visiting Kathie, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE.
Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Back to School" project at FCCB!
How fun is that?
For my project I made an adorable classroom decoration for my mom's classroom. I found plastic containers in the dollar bins at Michaels. They almost look like cup coolers. I took crayons and hot glued them all the way around the container. The container is filled with vase rocks for weight. The images all came from Peachy Keen's August SOTM and were colored with Prismacolor Pencils. To mat each image, I used Elegant Edges and resized the image to fit each shape. I used foam mounting tape to adhere the images to dowels. The dowels were cut to the desired length based on how it looked. To finish the project, I added some glossy accent to the eyes and a bow around the container. I think it will be the perfect addition to my mom's classroom.
In honor of FCCB's Cricut Crawl, I am going to do my first blog giveaway! Up for grabs I have the Happily Ever After cartridge. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post with a way to get ahold of you. So easy! I will draw a winner via random.org Sunday after the challenge ends.
Now it's your turn! Let's see your BACK TO SCHOOL projects! Make sure to include a Cricut Cut somewhere on your project!
