first birthday card

Megan used the Cricut adhesive foil on the front of this card to personalize it. The slide is made of the new Cricut Pearl Paper and really looks great in person.   She loved picking out the fancy font for the inside of the card as she typed the message out on the Cricut Design Space.

pillows for bridal shower

Using the Cricut Explore, we cut these images from heat transfer vinyl, Cricut brand, and applied them to these pillow covers. The font for "always" was easy to change using the Cricut fonts.  It is hard to see in the picture, but the pillows are a gray ombre to match the comforter we purchased off the registry.

bridal shower cutting board gift

Megan and I used the Cricut Explore to cut the vinyl for this glass cutting board.  It is not perfect but we did remember to mirror the image before cutting it and using the Cricut transfer paper made it easier to place on the surface. Weeding the vinyl image took the longest to do.

Megan's welcome to Cardinal Dolan

Staten Islanders were blessed today to have Cardinal Dolan visit Our Lady of Pity to host a Day of Mercy.  Megan wanted to make a sign for him and hang it by her dad's office, just three door away from the church.  She had great ideas and had fun making it.   What a beautiful inspiring day!
 She knew it was not complete until she added the butterflies too!  The sign took a few days to make, but that just gave Megan more time to add color and flowers to it!

Megan made these cards for fellow dayhab participants.  They like to celebrate each other's birthdays and Megan always wants to make cards as soon as she hears a birthday is coming.

Megan started out the week by bringing in card sets to make with her friends at her dayhab group.  These were cut with the Cricut Explore and Megan chose her colors etc.  to cut. Each person was given a bag with all the pieces necessary, cards, glue, stickers etc were sent in so the dayhab participants would have a productive morning making cards- with everything including wipes for gluey fingers sent in.  (We thank Danny, Megan's dad and my husband, for being so generous with the supplies we sent in!)

Now Megan wanted to thank the ladies who help the dayhab participants each week, These ladies volunteer their time- and pay to be CLLD (Continuing LifeLong Development) participants- all the while enriching the lives of these young adults so they have a meaningful time at this dayhab.
Megan made these fortune cookies boxes and made 'paper' cookies with sayings of appreciation, and filled the boxes with kisses. Thank you ladies for the love you give to the kids!

we forgot the picture but Meg made her sister, Erin, an EOS (lip balm) holder with a teddy bear cupid .  She also made daddy this card and nanny and poppy the heart card.

Megan's creative Christmas cards

Megan is making her Christmas cards.  She liked making the window out of vellum and putting the snowman and snow "outside" the window.  She used the Cricut explore and that made it very easy to make the greeting over the fireplace and even the bricks in the fireplace.

Megan made this card for  her daddy's birthday. She used an Action Wobble under Crush so he moves back and forth. Wink of Stella Clear Shimmer was used to highlight the seaweed and coral.  The cuts came from the Cricut Disney's Best of Pixar. She used the Cricut Explore for this card.
