April Calendar using Cricut Easter and Cricut Designer Calendar

It’s Good Friday and I hope your Easter weekend will be filled with Family and Friends. If you have been following my blog for the past couple of months, you know I do a calendar as my first post of each month. This month I wanted to show that when you detail you die cuts it makes the world of difference.


I used chalk inks, glimmer mist, fine tip markers, and a couple of felt butterflies. I am a firm believer of a heavy hand in inking—I love the highs and lows you get. I layered two colors of green for the grass and placed the rabbit behind and used a brand for the rabbit’s eye. I cut the Easter egg with two colors. For the yellow layer I also used yellow glimmer mist to give it a little shimmer!

Come back next week to see the projects I made with and Asian Flair—since I am overseas I thought this was a great opportunity to showcase Cricut Pagoda and the Asian Cuttlebug Bundle.

Hope you have a Happy Easter!

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!

Please e-mail me your mailing address to  Winners have two weeks to claim their prizes!

Now on to the Haul video!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Big Thank You....using Cricut Songbird and a Gypsy cut file

Wow! This week is going to be crazy--as I am leaving on a business trip to Asia on Aprils Fools Day! Before the worry of the week distracts me--I wanted to send a BIG THANK YOU to all of you who left comments this weekend on Everyday Cricut and here on my blog! The response was overwhelming and more than I ever thought! I have read every comment (over 700 in all) and have taken notes of some requests for more VIDEOS!!! I hear ya and promise that in the coming weeks I will address this request!

So here is your thank you!

I used the same top note card I posted a cut file for on Saturday! This time it is much more casual!
I used Core’dinations card stock for the solid aqua blue and My Mind’s Eye pattern paper (a multi color stripe and an orange polka dot). I stamped THANKS using this month’s exclusive set of stamps from Close to My Heart (so glad they showed up on Friday!) and a button with Jillibean Soup wooly twine in chocolate!
Again Thanks a Million for the words of support and encouragement! I am so excited to be sharing with all of you! Come back on Wednesday to see haul video from Two Peas in a Bucket!

See you Wednesday!
