CWC- Cash in Your Stash!

This week's challenge is to use something that has been in your stash for over a year. So, I took it a step further and only used things that had been in my stash for a year! This is a gift card holder I made for a retirement group gift at work. The gift card holder itself is from Tags, Bags boxes and More. The house is from Create A Critter and slightly stretched on my Gypsy, and the font is Don Juan. Let me tell you, this went over well! I was so proud of myself!

Now it’s your turn!!! Get that hidden cash in your stash out and do something with it!  Here are just a few small guidelines:
* Must use your Cricut or some type of die cut on your project.
* Must use something that has been in your “Stash” for AT LEAST a YEAR.
* Your Project must be a new project for this challenge and your post MUST have a link back to CWC.
* Your entry needs to be a direct link to your project and not just your blog.

Now head back to Cooking with Cricut and play along with us! We can’t wait to see how you use the “Cash In Your Stash”!

CWC Bunny Hop!

Welcome to Jenna's Favorite Things and the Bunny Hop!  With Easter just around the corner we wanted to share some of our ideas and give you some inspiration for your Easter projects!  If you've come from visiting Roberta at TX Scrapper Mom, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to hop along with us, you can go to and start at the beginning. Go HERE.  
 So, I have to admit to being really bad at following directions- this is an Easter hop and I get a little sidetracked. lol. I stuck with an Easter color scheme, but made a gift box for a baby shower I am headed to this week. But everyone needs gift boxes and you can always adapt colors, right?

This was made using Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. I know, I can't believe I only used one cartridge either. I cut the flower box at 10" and the flower tag (blackout feature) at 3" and 1.5". Papers are DCWV and BoBunny. The decorative squares on the sides were just cut to fit with my paper slicer. So, it was totally easy to put together and it finishes with about 2.5" square sides, so pretty decent size. You could fit a couple chocolates in there- or other little toys for Easter. I'm actually putting baby hairbows in it for the shower I'm going to. It should fit all 3 or 4 I'm planning on making. I'll try and post those when I get to them too.

I'm also offering a prize as part of the Easter Hop- a digital stamp given by Melin at Papercrafting World.
Its adorable and perfect for any baby projects you may need to do! Or any others you can dream up! To win, you must be a follower and leave a comment, that's all!

Now it's your turn!  Link up your Easter-related project at  Be sure to include a Cricut or other die cut machine cut on your project.   The Design Team will pick their three favorites and one lucky person will be chosen randomly to win one of the prize packages being offered in this hop. Make sure to go on and visit Anita next!
