Birthday Giraffe from New Arrival Cricut Cart and Quilling

Hello Everyone and Welcome to another project.

Today's project was cut using the Cricut New Arrival cart.  For those of you new to my blog I would like to let you know that most of my projects are using my Cricut and then embellished with Quilling.  I love this art form and have been doing it for a few years now.  I hope that you find inspiration on my blog and that you give Quilling a try, its so much fun!
I made this card for an upcoming 1st birthday we will be attending on Saturday.  This was an easy project and anyone learning how to quill can master it.  For the Quilling Shapes Chart click HERE.  If you are interested in purchasing a Quilling kit with the tools I have some on sale right here on my blog, you can click on this link "My Quilling Shop blog store", once in a while I will be listing items that you might find interesting for Quilling at affordable prices.  Now on to today's project.....

How I made it:

Cardstock: Itsy Bitsy K & Company
Ribbon, dimensionals- Stampin Up

Using random.org here are the results.  We had 16 comments.  I counted them from bottom to top, since my recent comments always go on top and my older comments stay at the bottom does that make sense? Here is the result: 

True Random Number Generator Min: 1 Max: 16 Result: 9 Powered by RANDOM.ORG
The Winner is:

A Quilled Scissor Charm!

Hello Everyone!
Today I would like to share with you a Quilled Project I made for my scissors.  This flower charm was made using 3/8" width quilling strips of paper.  The edges of this particular paper are gilded to resemble gold.  I quilled 10 Marquise with 12" long strips of paper.  A tight circle for the center of the flower.  An opened center tight circle to place at the top of the charm to hold the keychain.  
Hope you like it and a video tutorial is in process to see how it was made!

Have a great day!
Quilled Hugs,

Throwback Thursday Challenge Episode #60

Hello Everyone and Welcome to all!
Today's project was made for the Throwback Thursday Challenge from My Creative Time Blog.
This project is a 6X6 Scrapbook page that I made for my 5 month old Lukas.  This is actually my first scrapbook page that I have made him...(I know shame on me :(...) I was looking for a picture of him smiling but quite honestly I don't think we have one yet.  So I used this one of him starring at the camera, I'll change it later I guess.
On with the instructions:
Cart used: Zoobaloo- Palmtree and Vine layer from page 128, used the Fit to lenght feature for a 6" page, the cut was 3 1/2".  I love this feature!  Letters were cut at 1" with the shadow feature.  
The Monkeys, leaves on the vine, coconuts and turtle where Quilled with 1/8" strips of quilling paper.  This is the standard size paper for quilling.  Colors used were brown, light brown, dark green.
The picture is 2 X 11/2 and the mat was cut from Stampin Up patterned paper.

Hope you enjoyed todays' project.
Quilled Hugs,
Linda K.

I used the Cropadile to punch holes to the top of each charm and put an eyelet
1/8" strips of Quilling Paper- The Gloves are embellished with a Quilled flower and leaves.
I also used jump rings found in the jewelry section at a craft store (bought mine at Michaels)
