Talk Like A Pirate Day

Argh Matey's! Yer must have heard de news by now that it's talk like a Pirate Day! To celebrate today I am swabbing the deck and getting the plank ready for all yer scurvy's to have take a walk. OK, I'm not doing anything like that at all. I have created a cute birthday set featuring one of my favorite Imagine carts, Buccaneer. It's full of treasures that's fit for any pirate, argh!

I  cut the treasure chest box to fit to page and filled it with gold and cash! Argh a pirate's favorite booty! I cut the Pirate, Parrot and Treasure Chest in layers and used pop dots to give them some dimension.

All the paper is also from the Imagine with the exception of the base. That was from my stash. I added some twine and skittles for embellishments.

This is a cute set for any Pirate loving scallywag!

Argh! Thanks fer dropping anchor on me blog today!

Happy Crafting!

Machine used: Cricut Imagine
Carts: Imagine Art Buccaneer
Extras: Twine, Skittle and Pop Dots
Paper from my stash and printed from the Imagine.


  1. Wow, I love your card and treasure chest with the coins and money!! I love this cart too but haven't used it yet. You have inspired me to get with it and use it to make something fabulous! lol

  2. Awww...Colleen, what a perfect project for Talk Like a Pirate Day! Perfect card and perfect treasure chest!

    Really though, I just came by to tell you that you are on my mind today. Just thought you might catch this in your emails even if you are too busy to go on the MB. I know you have your hands full with all of the medical details for your son and worries of your mom, so I wanted to let you know we are thinking of you and praying for you. Best wishes for you and your family. Hugs--

  3. Sorry to bother you here, but I was looking for the "more details" for the Bride of Frankenstein movable monster you have as a project over on project center. I really like her! Could you just tell me what size you cut her out? Thanks so much. Jamie
    ps. it is not letting me comment over there, that is why I left you this comment.

  4. Hi Jamie,
    I went back over the gypsy file and the torso of Mrs. Frankenstein measured 2.486 in width and 5.944 in height. The rest of the cuts were based on the torso. That's why she's so big. LOL! Feel free to PM at the Cricut boards if you need more info.
