I’m Amanda, and I put the AMANDA in A MANDAtory Activity (and I like a good bad pun).
As part of my gift and craft making for friends and family, I fell in love with making candles and soap. Now, I want to share them with you. A Mandatory Activity sells artisan candles and bath products handcrafted, by me, in Maryland. My candles are hand-poured using 100% soy wax. Take a look around and find something to love.

Cricut Tutorial: BBQ Apron Card
Do you have a grillmaster in your life who will need a birthday card? If so, you've come to the right place! I always find it a little difficult to make or create cards that aren't too cutesy, but hopefully I succeeded here today with this BBQ apron card design.
The tutorial below will take you through design of this card in Cricut Design Space, using only images from Design Space, so if you have Cricut Access, this project should be free for you to create yourself! We will use various techniques in Design Space to turn an image, or a bunch of images, into a BBQ themed card!

I use the Cricut Explore Air, and I love it. If you don't already have a Cricut, I would get the bundle so you have all of the mats and tools you need to get started.
Foam squares can be purchased at Scrapbook.com. They have a great variety of both square and round foam bits and foam tapes. Scrapbook.com is also where I purchased the yellow twine I used for the banner inside of the card.
I cannot recall where the paper for the grill tools came from, but another alternative is the Cricut Sparkle Paper. Before you get concerned, sparkle paper and glitter paper are not the same thing. I love sparkle paper because the glittery part is trapped under a clear layer, so it cuts smoothly and doesn't get glitter all over your work surfaces!Washi tape is from a Michael's set. I don't see the set any longer (it was pretty old), but this one is similar and any coordinating washi tape will work.
