Spotlight Sunday

post signature

Hello Crafters. Faith Wallace here with our Sunday Spotlight entry.

By the end of the weekend, we crafters may need a little more inspiration. That is why FCCB has the Sunday Spotlight column where we showcase work from Guest Designers. This week we are so thrilled to have Shawn Mosh from Crafty Chics Blog join us. Her blog is full of great inspiration, so definitely check it out. Shawn is also the owner of MyCutSearch. Her Cricut search engine is fantastic when you want to find just the right cut. 

Shawn told us a little about her crafting history:

In the fall of 2004 I was invited to a crop event at my daughter’s daycare.  Several of the daycare teachers were avid scrapbookers.  I had never scrapbooked before . . . I had always placed photos into photo albums and sometimes I would slide a few pieces of memorabilia into the photo albums.  I told myself that the ONLY reason I was going to this crop was because it was a fundraiser for the daycare and the teachers told me about some Disney themed products that would be sold there . . . we had just taken a trip to Walt Disney World that year, so I figured that I would do “just this one scrapbook” of our 2004 trip to Walt Disney World.

Now, 10 years later, I have a crafting blog, a website devoted to helping people find images on Cricut cartridges and we have converted my son’s old bedroom into my craft room.

I love the rhinestone sticker sheets from The Buckle Boutique.  These sheets are amazing!  The gems are actually a soft resin that you can cut with scissors, a craft knife or a die cutting machine.  Yes . . . you can cut them with your Cricut!  I have used them to add sparkle to so many projects.  Just cut the shape I want with the Cricut, peel off the backing and stick.  You get the look of rhinestones without having to line up and glue down each individual gem.

I also love my papers.  I cannot get enough of them!  My husband even built me a paper tower for my craft room so that I can separate them by colors and patterns and keep them all organized.  No matter how much paper I have,
 I can always fine more that I have to add to my collection.


Shawn's favorite Cricut cartridge: 

That’s an easy one . . . ANY of the Disney Cricut cartridges!

Here are some great examples from Shawn's blog:

  2. Wonderful Disney layouts. The Disney cuts can be very detail and hard to assemble in my opinion. You did a wonderful job. I use to work for the Mouse as in Mickey Mouse at Disney World in FL thru high school & college.

  3. I've been following Shawn's blog for at least a couple of years now and really like it. I've also met Shawn as we live not too far away from each other and she is very friendly and helpful. Congrats, Shawn, on the spotlight today!
