Getting Crafty with Cricut Cuts!

If you are here for the H2H Design Team Challenge, click here.

Welcome to Gettin' Crafty with Cricut Blog hop. This blog hop is dedicated to making a project using your Cricut and the cuts you can make from a cartridge. This should be a lot of fun.


With so many talented ladies and such a selection of Cricut cartridges, there will be a wide range of projects for you to enjoy.There were no rules, stipulations, or no holds barred to create and create we did!!!

If you just happened to be visiting my blog today, I greatly appreciate that but would love for you to start at the beginning of our hop so, that you don't miss a single project with Lisa. If you have arrived from Chele’s CraftyCreations, then you are on the right cut of the path!!!

For my project today, I have created a cute little candy box for my cousin as a little "thank you" gift for letting us stay with him during our recent visit.  

Notice the box is made out of paper that looks like a map -- I used this paper because we had to take a "road trip" to visit him.  "Road trip"  --- get it??  Anyway .. the paper is called Cruisin'.  I also used a couple of stamp sets for the sentiments:  Thoughtful Tidings (the February Stamp of the Month) and Family Love

To make this adorable little gift box, I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  It has over 700 images on it!  I use it all the time.

Here's the recipe for my box:

Oval Gift Box:  p. 22, A2. shift, font layer, < Oval1 > at 10"
Scalloped mat:  p. 50, C10, decorative layer < Tag3 > at 3 1/2"
"Top Notch" mat:  p. 24,  A4, < Square6 > at 1/12" and 1 3/4"

Your next stop along the cutting path is Anita at Anita & Bugs.   Remember, this is a two day hop and be sure to stop back tomorrow for more creativity!!!
