Cricut Recipe Page – Pilgrim Squirrels in the Cookie Jar

Another 6″x6″ page for the recipe swap.  This recipe page is for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (with Cream Cheese frosting).  If you are interested in the cookie recipe, you can find it here.  And if you are interested in the Cricut recipe, you can find it here.

This page uses the new “Create a Critter 2” pilgrim squirrel (cut at 2.25 inches tall).  The squirrel popping out for the cookie jar is also from “Create a Critter 2” although her cap is from Everyday Paper Doll Dress Up.  I used Cricut Craft Room (CCR) to size the cap to fit the squirrel.  The cookie jar is actually the vase from “Walk in My Garden”.  I used CCR to re-size the vase a little wider than the original cut.  I made the cookie jar lid by welding a rectangle and a circle together and then sizing to fit the jar.  The pumpkin label on the cookie jar is from “Create a Critter” and Cricut Essentials.  And the little leaves floating about are also from “Create a Critter”.  I made the “cookie title” by printing and then punching with a 1.75″ circle and then taking bites out with a 1/2 inch circle.  A little Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Wild Honey adds more dimension as does the Glossy Accents on the nose and eyes.

Merci – Another Cricut Circle 2 Hour Challenge

Better time management skills this time round for a sketch challenge (the first one I have tried).  Not being a layout type of person, I made a 5.5″ card.


This card used Create a Critter exclusively for the french poodle, “merci,” hearts, and little flowers.  Using Cricut Craft Room, it was really easy to get the scale right the first time.
