Welcome, welcome, welcome back to Day 2 of the "It's a Basket Case" Blog Hop presented by the very-talented Rhonda of Scrap Happens!! I am so excited and honored to be a part of Rhonda's very first blog hop (thank you, Rhonda!)!! If you are hopping along with us today, and you've arrived from Serenity Scrappers, then you are in the right place!! If you've just happened upon my blog by chance, you'll definitely want to START HERE to hop along with us and see all of the amazingly creative projects my blogger buddies have designed for you both yesterday AND today (if you get lost along the way, you can find the whole Blog Hop list below)!! Be sure to leave a comment if you like what you see, as I have some Blog Candy for you to win (details below)!! Now onto my project...
It's a Jellybean Jar!! Now isn't that incredibly useful??? There are at least enough jellybeans in that jar to last a week or so... Two weeks if I hide it from The-Girl-Child!! :) Does anybody else go a little nuts on jellybeans and chocolate at this time of the year??? I gotta tell ya -- I'm pretty crazy about Reese's Peanut Butter EGGS... I can live without the regular ole cups, but those eggs are irresistible (thus the reason I refuse to purchase them!)... Yum.
At my Cricut classes, I give a very brief intro to vinyl... Everyone is always surprised at how fun and easy it is to work with... Everyone is also surprised to learn that my favorite 'transfer' material is actually 'Frog Tape' (it's painter's tape, it's green, it comes in its very own container, and you can find it in popular home improvement stores)... You can spend plenty of money on the 'official' transfer tape, or you can pick up some Frog Tape... Yeah, you can't see through it, but nothing beats the low-tack, no residue convenience of this stuff!! :) If you would like more info, please feel free to leave me a question with your email address, and I'll get back to you...
This project was super quick and easy -- And when Easter is over, I can easily remove the vinyl and decorate my jellybean jar with something else (flowers for Mother's Day, butterflies for summer, fireworks for 4th of July... You get the idea)... If you have any trouble removing your vinyl, simply use a hair dryer to gently warm the vinyl before peeling it away (so ya know -- it is pretty difficult to reuse your vinyl images once removed... Sure, I've seen it done, but I wouldn't -- If it's a single layer cut, you can count on simply throwing it away once removed)...

Next, you're off to the talented LIZ at Tryin' to 2 Craft (and believe me, she's not just tryin'... She's succeeding!!)... So hop, hop, HOP, and HAVE FUN!! Until next time, may your jellybeans be plenty!! :)
As a BONUS, I am entering my Jellybean Jar in the challenge over at FCCB!! Their 'Spring Fling' Challenge is to create something with at least one Cricut cut using the colors PINK, GREEN, and YELLOW!! I think it's okay that there's some purple thrown in there too!! :)
