It’s time to look back on our #MonthofMakes! Every day in July, we have shown a different making idea on Instagram Stories that is quick and easy to help give inspiration!
We know how easy it is to get caught up in a creative funk and all of a sudden, a month has passed, and you haven’t made anything.
Each day has come with a prompt giving you the perfect balance of inspiration and flexibility to join in and make something for yourself.
Makers in the Cricut Community have also shared their projects by using #MonthofMakes. You can see the communities amazing makes by searching #MonthofMakes on Instagram.

Let’s check out what the last week has given us:
Day 23: Abstract
Do you love the latest abstract trend? We do too and it happens to look great as décor on our makes.
We created a line drawing using an image from Design Space, search #M29A057CC.
Day 24: Favourite Quote
There is nothing like seeing your favourite quote to make you smile. Whether it’s on the wall, on a notebook, or on a tote bag, it’s totally unique to you.
This beautiful personalised mirror is by TheDancersDaughter on Instagram using their favourite quote from a popular musical!
Day 25: Retro
Retro is in!
There are lots of retro-inspired images in Cricut Design Space like the one we have used on this tray. It would be perfect for a staycation and campervan fun!

Day 26: Romance
Making for a wedding, anniversary or just to make your loved one smile is always a great idea. Additionally, handmade cards and gifts show just how much you care.
Day 27: Animal
There are many ways you could use animal images for projects. You could create wall decals, party décor, cards, or a nursery wall hanging like this adorable lion project!

Day 28: Back to School
Get back to school ready with personalised everything! Easily create personalised clothing tags, lunch boxes, PE bags and more.
With a Cricut Machine, anything is possible!
We decorated a pencil case with a mer-mazing project available in Cricut Design Space. We used a holographic iron-on for the extra wow factor!

Day 29: Birthday
We love to make for birthdays! From cards to party décor, to handmade gifts, there are always many ways you can put a unique and personal spin on a birthday celebration.

Day 30: Kitchen Labels
Makers love to label and we can agree, labelling is so much fun! It is so satisfying to stay organised with labels.
We have used the font ‘Happy’ from Design Space for these labels.
Day 31: Stationery
Personalised stationery is always a good idea! From pencil cases to planners, there is so much you can create!
We created a colourful daily planner layout including rainbows and stars with the Smart Paper™ Sticker Cardstock. It was quick and easy to use plus with an adhesive backing it meant no need to apply glue!
Project includes image from Design Space #M22992E4, #M2298FCD, #M22991AA.
