Fantabulous Cricut "Button Up for School" Crawl

Hello Everyone and welcome to Cute Cards and Crafts By Jamie! and the FCCB "Back to School" Crawl. Thank you for stopping by on this fun blog hop. You should be joining me from JOYCE, AKA "Passion For Paper" if you just popped on my blog and want to play along you should start at the beginning which is the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog HERE.

In honor of Back To School time, we're calling our second Fantabulous Cricut Crawl "Button Up For School"...

Each  DT member will feature an original project that has to include a button AND a Cricut cut somewhere on their project. Make sure to check out each member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be prizes along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be a grand prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a project meeting the the "Button Up For School" challenge criteria!
How fun is that?

So here is my project...  I found this cute printable saying from HERE and down loaded it, I printed one sheet which gave me 4 and that's exactly what I needed :) Then I had my kids sign their names and got busy putting them together. I used Doodlecharms for the apple and bus adding buttons to the wheels. I also used my EK Success punch to make it look like it was from a notebook and found some fun school themed paper out of a Die Cuts With a View stack.
I added a few other things to my bags before I tied them up like a Reese's cup and some Hershey's kisses and then of course my cute calculator I found at the store for $1.00. I also punched a whole and used an eyelet to thread my hemp through and tie on my tag.

I am offering some blog candy today... For today's prize Scrappy Mom's Stamps has graciously donated a set of their totally awesome stamp sets, the one you can win is called "The Charmed Life." They have 5 other great stamp sets available right now too, you can see them all HERE. Thank you so much to Scrappy Mom's Stamps for sponsoring me! OK, so you have 2 chances to win... If you leave a comment that's one and if you decide to follow me and leave a separate comment that will be two! Easy enough huh?! ;)

Now it's your turn to see if you can incorporate a button on your own "Button Up For School" project. Make sure to include a Cricut cut somewhere on your project!

Your next stop is the Fantabulous... Candace @ Paper Crafts By Candace. Go see what she has in store for you today... And when you're done, make sure to link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post to be entered into the contest!

Be sure to check back all week for some other great projects and card ideas and you never know when there will be another prize up for grabs :)

Happy Crawling!
