Crazy About Cricut All American Blog Hop!!

Hi Everybody!

Thank you for joining us for the All American Blog Hop! We are sharing projects that celebrate anything American! So anything like BBQ's, family picnics, 4th of July, or more. Hopefully you just came from visiting Sandra's awesome blog at Sweet Peas Cards. If not, please head over to see Jenny at Crazy About Cricut to start from the beginning. Here's the project I made to share with you today.

I decorated the pail with a pretty ribbon then made these fun pinwheels and attached them to craft sticks. I used a 6x6 piece of paper to make these. I used the Stamping cartridge to make the stars and attached them to a round piece of grungeboard by Tim Holtz - I love how flexible the grungeboard is, but it is still strong enough to keep its form!

I also made a little pinwheel birthday card to go with the 4th of July arrangement.


There are a couple of GREAT prizes to win today! You can win a Scrap 'n Tote!! You can also enter to win this AWESOME prize pack from Post-it!

In addition, Sarah at Pink Cricut is offering the Party Time stamp set as another prize!


To enter to win the prizes:
1. You must leave a comment on all of the blogs in the hop.
2. Please be a follower of Crazy About Cricut.
That's it! Winners will be announced July 7th!

Your pin wheels are so wonderful!! I will have to try making some for my next BBQ. Where did you get the circle stamp for the pin wheels on the card?

Paper Panther and Rayna said...

The circle stamp with "fun in the sun", the 3 fireworks, and the "Celebrate" are all on a Close to my Heart set called In the Month of July. It's a great set!
