Hello everyone!! K over at Gypsy Cruz is hosting her first ever challenge. I am so excited for her......she has been crafting for a very long time, but just broke into the blogging world.....WELCOME!!!

Check out her blog and play along:
Gypsy Cruz
She is offering blog candy for the winner, which will be chosen randomly!!

She graciously asked me to be a guest designer and I happily agreed. I wanted to create something other than a's what I came up with!!

~~Honestly today came quickly, I wanted to make a video to show you how I made this bucket, but that will have to be another post......keep your eyes posted~~

OLD: the wire used the make the is floral wire and I have not used it in quite some time

NEW: the red polka dot paper - bought a long time ago, but never used it

RED and BLUE: you can see

BORROWED: the idea, I "memory banked" it, I while back and finally decided to try it

One requirement was to be creative with the lettering, I chose to using my sewing machine to write "thank you". I cut out the center to the red border and taped the piece of material down, then glued the red onto the white background.

Thought this quote was fitting for my "bucket".

The side "hinges" are actually a "tag punch", folded in half. The bottom edge and top bucket edge is punched with the "floral lace" punch by Martha Stewart. I chose that punch because another requirement to the challenge was there had to be some sort of floral element.


  1. AWESOME JOB!!!! I love it!

  2. and yes please post a video I really want to see how you made this :)

  3. Great Job! I just started following your blog today. We have something in common, I love my cricut! I like the way you did the lettering on this project. I would have been afraid to try that.
