You Color My Life Beautiful Scrapbook Layout with Cricut Explore

 Many of you know I became a grandma (or Lolli) a month ago today.  This is my sweet grandson, Ace.
I had so much fun creating this layout.  It's been a long time since I've had new photos to scrap and this little man was just the inspiration I needed to get back into the craftroom and try something different.   I cut the title out of watercolor paper using my Cricut Explore.

Here's a video of this layout.  I encourage you to try the watercolor paper on the Cricut.  LOVE IT!

Lighted Birdhouse With Cricut Explore

 Hello and thanks for stopping by!  Today I have a fun project for you using Lori Whitlock birdhouse SVGs from (link to exact file below).

To make this birdhouse I simply slightly altered a birdhouse SVG file by slicing out a circle in the bottom of the birdhouse with the Cricut Explore.  I then placed it over a battery operated tea light candle.   Wouldn't these be cute with the entire set of 5 birdhouses (which come in the set) all light up together?!!

Here's a quick tutorial to walk you through how to make this on your own!
