Red white and blue {vinyl} star twinkle toes

Hi Crafters,

Happy Summertime! I love warm sandal weather!! I'm also a big fan of pedicures, but it's an easy way to spend that money! I especially like getting some fancy details on my big toes, but again that costs extra money. This is my cheater pedi method.  My husband said I have an illness, I really will find a way to cricut/vinyl everything!

This challenge on Cut it up! is New Nations. Make a project with a die cut celebrating Canada or the United States! Be sure to link your project for a chance to win a great prize 3 Girl Jam! They are giving away a $15.00 shopping spree.

I started out with Zoya's Reva which is a fabulous red/pink color with some fun glitter, perfect for 4th of July festivities!
I used the cricut vinyl to cut out the star from George and Basic Shapes cricut cartridge. I cut out the shadow of the star in navy blue and the top layer in white. I resized them with my gypsy to make them fit on my nails. I put a layer of clear top coat on top to protect the vinyl.  

Thanks for stopping by,

{Trendy Twine} Red, White ,and Blue Cut it Up Challenge!

Hi Crafters,

Our friends at Trendy Twine sent us some fabulous twine to work with for this challenge!  I hope you enjoyed the Father's Day projects last month.

I have a wedding this weekend to attend.  The trendy twine dressed up the cake carrier perfectly! I always struggle when I have those awkwardly shaped objects to wrap. The twine dressed up the carrier  so no wrapping paper or boxes are needed and allowed me to attach a tag with washing instructions.

I used Mini Monograms for the monogram.  The cake carrier is done in navy blue and white vinyl.  I also added their last name under the C after I took the picture. 

I also used Mini Monograms for the card. I laced up the circles with trendy twine.  I've used several other brands of twine and I have to say this is the best quality I've worked with! It's a great heavy weight and the colors are beautiful!

Be sure to stop by Cut it up! to link up your Red, White and Blue projects!

Happy Crafting,
