Cool Treats -Fantabulous Cricut Challenge

Hi Everyone, thanks for joining me for my Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog project today.
This weeks challenge
"Cool Treats"
Create a project with any type of a cool treat

A yummy cool treat that I think about during the Summer is Watermelon, especially after it has been sitting in a cold stream, that's the best way to store a watermelon when camping.
  Our fantabulous sponsor at FCCB this week is CRI-Kits, if you have a cricut machine this company carries some must have tools!  Gel pens, embossing stylus and markers, yes to use with your Cricut machine.  If you haven't tried these yet they are amazing, the magnetic pen holder is brilliant, I love how the pens connect securely inside the holder, and are super easy to remove.
CRI-Kits has very generously supplied a few of the FCCB design team members with their products, thank you so much CRI-Kits!

 I got to play with the "Glitter" pens, you can see the shimmer and shine in the close up photo of the word Summer below.... Love it!
This word is from the Stretch Your Imagination Cricut cartridge, as you're flipping through the handbook this image is almost missed... at least it was for me, it's on pg 32.
I used the Cricut Craft Room so I could line up the word "Summer" with the "shadow" image. Then just took a yellow copic marker and carefully colored the inside.
I sponged a hint of pink ink around the edges of the phrase.
I used foam tape to pop us the word and the watermelon. The crinkle ribbon is Sunshine Yellow, available at My Craft Spot -HERE.
Inside view of card, Just used left over scraps.

On the CRI-Kits website you will find some great project ideas and educational videos on how to use these pens -HERE.The embossing stylus is definitely on my wish list, which items are on  your list?
Now head over to Fantabulous Cricut to join us for this weeks challenge and to check out the other "cool treats" projects made by the Fantabulous design team -HERE.
