Scrapoholic Design Team Monday!

Happy Monday everyone.  My kids start school tomorrow, today is their last day to sleep in.  I'm ready to be rid of the stinkin' hot temperatures we've had, but not ready for summer to end quite yet.  I actually got to float in the pool for a little bit today and the water was quite refreshing instead of feeling like leftover bathwater.  I'm not sure if we've broken the record of 50 days over 100 degrees yet, but I'm relatively sure it will happen this week if it hasn't already.

Now for my design team project from Jill, The Scrapoholic's SVG/MTC files.  She created some awesome "bling" template files.  They are great, but really made me realize how much I'd like to get something other than a Cricut to cut them with.  The dang thing makes ovals instead of circles!  Anyway, enough about that,  and on to my project.

I made a lantern using SVG Attic's Summer Lantern collection and blinged it out with the iRock.  I did put a little battery operated tealight in it, but you can't really see it in this picture.  The antique high chair its sitting on was used by my Dad and Uncle when they were small.  I'm sure my sister and I also used it. 

Here's a close up of the bling.  These are the smallest rhinestones in the clear pack by iRock.  It actually took almost two of them to do all four sides.  Thank heavens for Michael's 40% off coupons!

I hope everyone has a great week! 


  1. I just LOVE your creations! I can't wait to get another machine other than the cricut too!

  2. Love this lantern!! I am wanting to get a Zing but the price stops me. I tried to print and cut with my cricut and make-the-cut today and was ready to buy a new machine. I just have to convince my husband now! :)
