17 Jan Using a Crop-A-Dile dt

I love my Crop-A-Dile! In which is today's THEME.  It would be awesome if you'd head back over to Erica's at  mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com to see my amazing DT sisters awesome projects when you are done browsing and hopefully oohing.. and aaahhing..   :))(big cheesy grin)

There are so many things you can do with this awesome tool... I have used it to punch holes in the lil tin buckets to holes for ribbon in composition notebooks, just to name a few..  Do you know you can cut a hole in a cookie sheet to hang it up!!
  I am going to show you a couple of older LO's I have done using the crop-a-dile.  mind you they were yeeeaaaars ago that they were created...
My daughter Kristal who will be 27 soon.  She was 4 then :)

using the crop-a-dile to hold down this journaling.

my oldest granddaughter Kiana who will be 10 next month and her 1st pr of shoes I got her at 6mo old.   This is page 2 of 2.  It is a 2 pg LO. and so darn plain!!    lol
NOW for today's newest project:
Not sure if you know, but the colorful puzzle piece is the symbol (icon) for Autism..    I have a 7 yr old son, Jayden with Autism and a 10yr old niece, Katie with Asperger's Autism.  This will be given to my sister in law, Marti as my niece is in a group home right now with such issues relating to the Asperger's Autism and trying to get it all in control.  Bless my niece's lil heart.  This will cheer her up.

Don Juan Cricut cartridge is used to cut out the large puzzle piece at 5 inches and the smaller puzzle pieces at         Colors were random on the Imagine  built in colors.   Snapshot Every Day Imagine Cartridge was used for the Crayon look for the "Autism; you color my world" Letters were designed and cut out from the CCR & Imagine.  at 3.028 inches down to 2.486in.  Ribbon has multi colors & is some scrap ribbon left from a pile.  ctmh twine is green, blue and yellow.  Crop-A- Dile  used to punch holes and then set the eyelet in which it is red hearts.
all done. 

this lil sign is one I found on-line somewhere...  the smile faces are eyelets set by the crop-a-dile too.
cardboard used for the large hearts that are hanging down. 
49 puzzle pieces at 1.5 in were on this mat and all used on my project today. selected colors from the Imagine color built in.
here is the red puzzle piece cardboard printed with RED.  I punched a hole using the crop a dile and set it with this cute eyelet heart.  I then hung the ribbon and the twine through  it.
