Create A Critter Blog Hop (Day One): Frog


Hello, everyone!  Today is Day One of the Create A Critter Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from CallyAnn's blog.  If you're just joining the hop and want to start at the beginning, please hop on over to Ashley's blog.  This is a two-day hop featuring projects using the Cricut Create A Critter cartridge.  There are prizes to be won, so be sure to check out Ashley's blog for all the info!

My 20-month-old daughter loves frogs.  I think it's because of an episode of "Sesame Street".  Whenever she sees a frog, whether it's on TV or on a shirt, or sticker, etc .... she says, "Bah-BET!" which is her version of "RIBBIT".  LOL!!!  So, of course, I just had to use the frog image for my first project.


I made a shaped card using Cricut Design Studio.  I used the shadow feature and lined up two of them on the mat.  Then, I flipped one of them 180 degrees and welded the two images together.  If you want a visual of this, you can do a search on YouTube.  It's actually pretty easy!

I then cut the frog layers as I normally would.  I used some fun, green polka-dotted paper.  I also made this a girl frog by adding a pink bow to her head.  My little one loved her frog card!  Of course, she promptly colored her frog card as soon as I gave it to her.  LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to check out Ashley's blog for all the blog candy info.  Now, please hop on over to Sheila's blog to check out her fun CAC creation; and, don't forget to return tomorrow for Day Two of our blog hop!

Below is the complete lineup :
