It's a Spring Thing

Welcome to another challenge at Exploring Cricut and More!  This week's challenge was to create a card, layout, or other paper craft using at least 1 flower.

For my project I used several of the flowers from Mother's Day Bouquet and layered them adding a rhinestone button for the center.  The stamped sentiment has it ready to send to a special friend!

Happy Birthday stamp from Stampin' Up

April 17

Welcome to another daily project.  For today's project I'm sharing a card that I created for a little girl from church.  She's such a sweetie and she was celebrating her 7th birthday.  I had seen this design on the internet and thought this would be perfect for her.
I used cardstock (bamboo, cotton candy, hollyhock, outdoor denim, crystal blue, and goldrush) from my stash.  Sparkles from Michael's.

Bloom:  flowers@1.71"
Straight from the nest: birdcage with bird@2.0"

Easter Challenge

Welcome to another challenge for Exploring Cricut and More!  This week's challenge was to create a card, layout, or other paper craft with the theme of Easter and uses a frame and an embellishment.
For my project I choose a frame from the Disney Happily Ever After cartridge.  It doesn't scream Easter, but flowers always remind me of Easter.

April 3

Welcome to another daily project.  Today I'm sharing a door decoration that I did for what's called Operation Preparation.  In Kentucky we are starting to focus more on what our kids are going to do after high school and are we preparing them to meet their goals.  This year for Operation Preparation Week each teacher took a college/university from the state and decorated their classroom door.  I was given Georgetown College.

 I used the Chalkboard Font for the name of the college.  One of the symbols that the college uses is the shield (my depiction isn't exact but it's as close as I could make it).

Materials used:
Cardstock:  outdoor denim, white daisy, goldrush, and gypsy

Cartridges Used:
Chalkboard Font:  title @2.06"
Artiste:  Shield @10.77" and 7.71" and the tiny starburst @.88"
Designer Calendar: crosses@1.71" and I cut the extra bits off.
Sugar and Spice:  book@2.06"

Thanks for visiting.
