Sometimes we all have to make do with what we have. I had hoped by now that Provocraft would have introduced a new “College” cartridge that would include all things college related….Sports, Student Government, Diplomas, Sorority, Fraternity, Dorm stuff….not to mention a GREEK ALPHABET. I can keep hoping that one will appear soon, but until then I do the best I can with my Gypsy and Cricut.
Since starting this blog, I have posted at least one item that is sorority related and I received requests on how I made my letters.
I only needed an Alpha, Gamma and a Delta for my youngest daughter, so I have not tried to design any of the other letters of the Greek Alphabet. Thinking it might be easier to explain by the spoken word, rather write out some directions, I decided to make a video tutorial on these three little letters.
Please let me know what you think…..

Welcome to the last jump of the Bashful Bunny Blog Hop. We are a group of ladies that are participating in the Bashful Bunny Hop Swap on the Cricut Message Board and many of us are beginning bloggers. All of us enjoy our crafting and revel in sharing with our fellow CMB members. You should have arrived here from Paper Crafter’s Anonymous.
The beginning location for the Bashful Bunny Blog Hop is …My Little Corner. Some of the Bashful Bunnies will be offering some awesome BLOG CANDY! Be sure to see the very creative projects they each have on display and follow the instructions on each individual blog to enter their drawings.
Since we are empty nesters now, we do not decorate for Easter as we did when Hais and JMorgan were li’l darlins. So in following our new tradition of decorating the tree that is still up in our family room, I added little bunnies for a festive touch. At Valentine’s the tree was covered in kraft and dark red hearts and for St. Patrick’s it was shamrocks with faux stitching around the outer edges. Everything was cut with my Cricut Expressions.
Hais was home for a short weekend visit, so I decided to make some sorority door decorations for her dorm room at the house. The following Cricut Cartridges were used to complete this project:
A Child’s Year
Of course, it only seemed fitting to make matching door decs for Hais’ sorority sisters, as well.

With two daughters that will be Resident Assistants, me and both of my Cricuts have been very, very busy. My Hero and I were camping at Meade State Lake and Hais joined us for a few days so that we could work on her dorm room door decs (slang for door decorations..haha). We had a great time and much was accomplished. The space was tight and we had to improvise, but all went well.
Luggage Tag Door Decorations
The theme to welcome the students on her floor is….
“Several Journeys….One Destination”
…so luggage tags seemed the perfect compliment. Using bright colors with neon animal and other prints, she layered the tag with a shadow and added the names individually. A black ribbon and a clear bling embellishment were the crowning touch.
And this is the mess that was created from our fun. I save the scraps, so that I can cut the useable parts for my saved scraps pile.
REduce, REuse, REcycle
Couldn’t finish the post without a photo of Hais and Blondie together. Hais had not seen Blondie since she suffered her stroke and both were ecstatic to see one another. They were inseperable the entire visit.
