Buckets of fun! May not be safe for work?

The first project that I did was for a raffle game we are doing at my sister's baby shower next week. This was my first time making my own .SVG files and using Sure Cuts A Lot. It wasn't the easiest thing to do, but it wasn't the hardest. Had some help from the forums over at Great resources and very friendly people. I made the images of the rubber ducks in Adobe Illustrator.

The Second Project was for a co-worker. She just had to put down her dog and I wanted to do something nice for her. I never know what to say or do in these situations and I tend to use humor as a way to cope with a lot of stress in my own life so I thought I would make her a f-it bucket. The idea actually came from Amy Sedaris, in her book I like You: Hospitality Under the Influence. When I saw it, I loved it and sometimes you just need to say fuck it and what better way then with chocolate? I really liked how this turned out and can only improve them the next time around. I highly recommend using Sure Cuts A lot it opens up a lot of possibilities as you can see ;)

Look for better pictures in the future, these were just taken with my phone.

  1. Your bucket is beyond funny. Love it. I love seeing people who have a sense of humor and are not afraid to show it in their crafts. I am definately becoming a follower now.

    Keep the fun coming,
