Enchanted Forests...

I've been a busy bee running around getting crafty projects organized and together. This past weekend I was able to complete a baby shower gift for a friend-a woodsy themed shadow box to match her nursery decor, along with other goodies for them to enjoy:

Here are more close ups of the LO/Shadow Box:

 I used my Create-A-Critter Cricut Cartridge to make all the layered pieces. I have to say this is one of my most used and favorite cartridges to date. There are so many options and the animals are adorable!! I hand stamped the "handsome little prince" title and added some green and white bakers twine to make it look like it was floating in the air between the sleeping owls. Inking is another technique I enjoy using in my creations. Here I inked the grass blades, the fawn and the fox. I love the dimensions it creates.


  1. Very cute, they are going to LOVE it!

  2. This is so awesome

  3. Great shadow box! I am sure that your friend will LOVE it! ...all those little critters are adorable.

  4. Those critters are adorable!!! I'm not usually patient enough to cut out things with lots of details on my cricut, but I might have to give it a try this week!

  5. Thanks it was a lot of fun to make. I have to be in a scrappy cricut mood to focus on all the layers that need to be cut, but the time is definitly worth it :)
