March Cricut Circle Challenge



March is National Craft Month. This month, we want you to display your passion for your craft by creating a piece of wall art to display in your home, office, or wherever! The topic can be whatever you wish . . . 
just use your craftiness to make something you can display and share with others.
Create a piece of wall art (canvas, art board, sign, vinyl directly on wall, framed art, shadow box, etc.). Use at least three colors.

This was right up my alley because about a year ago I decided I did not want to hide all my scrapbook pages in books so I decided to put them in shadow boxes and line my upstairs hallway with them. I have pages with photos from 1920's through current. This page is of my daughter and her fiance- I had none up of the two of them so decided it was time and this challenge spurred me on. I use the T-shirt shadow boxes that Michaels has-they usually have great sales and (you can get them from $4-$5) and they are perfect for a 12x12 page. 
Plus I love that I can add more dimension with big brads and layers.


The papers are from Simple Stories and from Paper Studios- I think I met the challenge of at least three colors- the predominate of which are brown, beige green and red with some gold and blues.

I used Elegant Edges cartridge for the scalloped circles and Picturesque for the the flowers and the leaves.

  1. I had thought of doing this myself, as like you I like to have my pages around to look at instead of having them in a book all the time...might have to pop over to Micheals and get me one! Great job, it's beautiful! waving hi from the sunny hills of North Carolina :)

  2. Your LO is elegant, and I agree that having the LOs were they can seen is the BEST.
    Thanks for inspiring me to create one like this AND show it off!!! Love it!!

  3. This is such a beautiful layout. How wonderful that it's not hidden in a book. Good luck in the challenge.
