You can create any type of project you would like (tag, altered project, mini album, etc.) but your project must be newly created for this challenge I used some BoBunny paper and some glitter paper- I even used a transparency in the window.  The center of the flowers is Stickles and beads.

Weekly Challenge #41: Interactive Elements Challenge!

For this challenge, we want to see you add an interactive element to your project. Your project must be newly created for this challenge and include at least 2 Cricut Image Cuts. You must submit a project to be entered into the Challenge Prize Drawing. 

I knew I wanted to do a waterfall card for this- and it has been so hard at work lately and one of my colleagues has been down so I created this funny card to cheer her up . I used the Car Decals cartridge- I think it is the first time I have used it. The little mouse was pretty cute- so I designed the card around him.

Weekly Challenge #40: Glittery Card Sketch Challenge!

The Challenge: This week we want to see your interpretation of the following card sketch. Please include some kind of glitter or bling on your card. 

For my card I used three different cartridges- Elegant Edges, Beyond Birthdays and Birthday Bash. I used glitter paper for the wings and used Stickles on the black parts of the bee, on the words and as details on the "flowers".  I think it turned out pretty cute- and it is going to my 23 year old daughter for her birthday.

August Circle Magazine Challenge- Cosmo Cricket

Posted by Picasa

Well I really debated about entering anything after I saw Nadia’s entry and some of the others- but one of the things I have enjoyed about the challenges is that is pushes me to do things and use things I might not always use. In this case however I must admit- Cosmo Cricket is one of my most favorite paper lines and I use them quite a lot. For this layout I used papers from the Togetherness line, I also found some old ribbon and stickers from a Cosmo Cricket kit I picked up at Tuesday Morning over a year ago.

I used the following cartridges;
Mickey’s Font for title “Tiburon”
Destinations for the word “California”, I also used the Imagine to print the papers from Mr. Frosty and Kate’s Kitchen for this part of the page. I love the way you can coordinate the papers this way.
Mother’s day Bouquet for the flowers

I used the Swirls Cuttlebug folder on some of the letters in the title and enhanced it with some chalk ink.

Although it will not win- I am very happy with the layout and really enjoyed completing it.
