Cricut Showcase: Boys Will Be Boys

Welcome to another Cricut cartridge showcase.  We are delighted to have the ever so talented Chef Becky from http://www.scrapcircus.blogspot.com/ to share with you some of her fabulous projects. Becky and her family live in Canadian Rocky Mountains in BC, Canada.  They have two children, a boy, and a girl.  Becky is such a fabulous member of our design team.  She brings with her a great sense of design, color and technique as you will notice in her showcase.  

Today, Becky is showcasing the Cricut cartridge BOYS WILL BE BOYS.

This is a perfect cartridge to celebrate the joy of a little boy’s life! This adorable cartridge is filled with themed images such as vehicles, toys, sports, and animals. Whether you have a son, grandson, or nephew, this cartridge is sure to have images and phrases you need. There is even a font on this cartridge! I didn’t use it in any of my projects but it is an arrow font and looks like the word “BOYS” in the pic above^^



Each cut on this cartridge comes with a square or circle mat behind the image. You can use this feature or not. You will notice on all of my projects that I did not use the mat.

So let’s get to the showcase! I have a few projects to share with you today. First up, a card…



This rocket is so cute! I cut it out at 4”. I added little screw brads for some dimension, and I punched out a heart to go in the window since this is a ‘love’ card. The moon is cut from George and Basic Shapes.

Next I made a set of four 8x8 canvas’ to decorate a little guy’s room.



The Bulldozer was cut at 4” The Tow truck was cut at 6”. The Tractor was cut at 3”, and the Dump truck was cut at 4.5”

I made a banner for a friend and I used critters from a bunch of cartridges, but since I am showcasing Boys will be Boys today, I am only showing you the letters where I used cuts from this cartridge.



I love this little frog. He is so cute. The picture didn’t turn out great but I added some glossy accents to make him shiny.

Another letter on the banner had the gecko cut from this cartridge.



This little guys is so fun, I added the glossy accents to him as well to make him look all slippery and shiny.

For my last project I wanted to share that all the cuts on this cartridge are not just necessarily for boys. I made these sweet little valentines cards for my daughter to give out to the kids in her class this year. They are fun, and not to ‘lovey’ for her to give to the kids (especially for the boys). I made the girl valentines with a pink bike and the boys with a blue bike.

Sorry
Out For Publication


The cards are 4x4. I cut the bikes out at 2.5”. I used a punch for the clouds and the hearts. The sentiment was computer generated and I used a font called Calvin and Hobbes.

For those of you with little ladies in your life, I wanted to share some other cuts that would work for girls, including: sports cuts (baseball, basketball, soccer), tricycle, pail and shovel for the beach, kite, goldfish and bowl, sneaker, robot, fishing rod and fish, and I’m sure any of the other cuts depending of the type of girl you are scrapbooking!

Well, that is it for me today, I hope you enjoyed the projects. If you have a little boy (or a big one for that matter) in your life, this cartridge is for you!

Happy Scrapping
