Everyday Cricut Monthly Feature using Cricut Songbird

So today is my first opportunity to share in a monthly segment on Everyday Cricut where I show a guy's approach to paper crafting. I made a number of projects and wanted to share a few more with you on my blog. There is blog candy to be had! To have a chance to win--become a follower and leave a comment below. There will be two lucky winners. One will receive the Cricut Songbird cartridge featured in all of my projects today and another will win the K&Company: Amy Butler patterned paper pad.
You can DOUBLE your chance to win by going over to Everyday Cricut and checking out the additional projects over there and leaving a comment. Winners will be announced next Wednesday right here on Scrapguy!!!

Photobucket
I used Cord'inations WhiteOut and embossed with the Cuddle bug Divine Swirls and sanded it down. Only three gems to add a little bling but not make it to in your face.
size is A7


Photobucket
I embossed a cut of metallic paper for the main cut. I used another Fiskers edge punch, the velvet ribbon again, and heat embossing to complete this 5*5 card.

Photobucket

I used a SU embossing folder and Cord'inations WhiteOut--again with the sanding. Remember I am a guy and we all like our tools and I consider a Tim Holtz Sanding block a tool! Embossed the flower pot and used pattern paper for the shadow. Size is A7


Here are a few examples to show a guy can use pink paper as well! LOL!

Photobucket
I love the flat bow which I made in a two step process (1 make the loops, 2 wrap a pc around the center of the loops). Cut the birdcage and top notes and added rows of bling to the cage base. Size is A2

Photobucket
Photobucket
This card base is also from Cricut Songbird. I took a top note shape--sized to be A2 and copied it on my gypsy. I lined them up welded and POOF! a fancy card base was born. I also sized a top note for the front. I debossed the card base so the inside had a lot of WOW as well. Sanded again. Embossed again. Inked the edges of a white top note for the inside and heat embossed the sentiment. Here is the cut file for this card--it is in googledocs and can be easily downloaded!

Photobucket
I wanted something simple yet special. I added bling to the ribbon and some glimmer mist to the dark grey birdbath cut. Used the cuddle bug again and think it came out great. Do not be afraid to alter your ribbon with bling, ink, sanding, or washing.

  3. I love your more masculine take on cards, I myself a female dislike so much girlie stuff. My fav card is the the embossed metal bird and branch. I might need to get this cart.

  4. these designs speak to me...they let the receiver just enjoy the message and feel the serenity of the design not try to figure out if and where the sentiment is on the card amidst all the fru fru! i've been a follower for awhile and still say, how refreshing each time you post! congrats again on the everyday cricut gig!!!

  8. The cards are really neat and I love the ideas for the guys in my life. Found you on the Everyday Cricut, and I'm excited to see what's next!! I love my Songbird cart, and agree that not too many seem to use it. The K Company paper will be a terrific prize to win. Good luck to everyone, and Bryan, keep up the great ideas. BethAnn M

  9. Finally, some guy-card options! I'm not extremely good at color selections, so I tend to look for example cards to emulate on all of the card making blogs. These cards are man-tastic!! Thanks for sharing, Bryan!

  50. Wow Bryan!!!! great cards. You have given me such great ideas on doing man's cards. My husband is not a crafter,but he enjoys watching me making cards and layouts. He says he won't do it ,not because he is a man,but because he does not have a crafting bone in his body. I disagree. I think he is very crafty. Anyhow, thanks for sharing your talent and given me an apportunity to win such great blog candy!! (scrappyfrannie)

  56. I am so glad to see a male view point and ideas for making cards and scrapbook lay outs. I have always struggled with making cards for may male friends.
    BTW your not the only one who needs "tools" to for crafting. My husband supply of sand paper, basal wood, dowels... for his hobby keeping ending up on my scraping table.....Go figure

  58. I have just jumped into cardmaking myself - I've been a scrapbooker since I was a kid. Fairly new to Cricut & LOVE IT! Great to have a guy's take on all this which will help me make stuff for my DH & bosses. I am now rethinking the Songbird cart -- it was not on my radar until now. I'm discovering the hazards of blogs, as they tend to make me want it all! Love Everyday Cricut & your blog. So helpful!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Bryan,

  101. Very cool! I love the more masculine feel of them. I'm always trying to think of more masculine ideas, as I have only boys. I agree that there aren't enough 'guy' cartridges. It's getting better what with the BatMan and the Superman carts. But what about guys who hunt or fish? One of my first carts was Camp Out. And I love the things I can do with that. Have you used it before? I'd love to see your take on the cuts. Thanks for sharing

    Thanks for sharing your creations! It's so refreshing to see scrapbooking and cardmaking from a male point of view! I like the sanding idea too, gives it such a unique look. I, too, haven't paid much attention to the songbird cartridge, but after your cards and tips, I'm thinking this is one I might need to add to my collection! Thanks for your hard work, the cards are fantastic!

Wow! you were a busy Scrap Guy indeed! :) I've been following you so, no need to do that :) I ordered my gyspy at the launch and so loved it that I started my blog and named it around that...sweetsassydiva-gspot aka gypsy spot. :grin: It's great to see you follow my blog as well. I just have to find more time to scrap which is hard with two little ones. :) The gypsy is helping because I can steal a few minutes here and there. Thanks for sharing the great projects and a chance to win some blog candy. It's great to see that's it's ok that my 6 yr old DS likes to play with my gypsy too. :)
