So, as I mentioned in an earlier post, I am really liking this scrap only challenge. What a great way to think outside the box and use up all of those beloved scraps. Here's my 3rd take on that Challenge. I've included some close up pics of the Cuttlebug details too.
Create a Critter was used to make the circle in various sizes for the tree and the 2 Clouds, April Showers was used for the Welcome Spring (which also was a scrap from the Scavenger Hunt) and the tree is from ZooBalloo (stretched on the gypsy to be tall and skinny).
Here's a picture of me and my scrapbooking space, posted to enter for a cricut contest. To the wall on the left side of the desk, I have more jetmax cubes and plastic storage drawers with shelving above them to house all of my stamps, ink pads, ribbons, punches, paper and some scrapping tools.
In my head, this card turned out much better - LOL! Anyway, I used Pop-up Neighborhood as the "Something New" and A Child's Year as the "Something Old." I just might have to try to do this challenge a second time and hope I come up with a design I like better.
For this challenge, I decided to use a layout I saw on the CTMH website as my inspiration. The group of circle silhouettes was created on the gypsy and all of the circles, the photo frame, letters and the banner were cut from the cricut.
"LOVE" was cut out 4 times and glued together to give dimension. It was also run through the cuttlebug "spots" folder.
All of the paper, except for the one full sheet of grayish blue background, was from my scraps.

Below is my project based on the inspiration. I decided to use my Cricut Imagine for this one because it hasn't gotten much use. I really liked the femininity of the rose and butterflies, so I stuck close to those in my design. All of the cuts and papers are from Lori's Garden Imagine Cartridges. My other favorite thing to do is to use Distressed Inks on the edges of the cuts for an extra pop.
Welcome to my blog! Some of my visitors may know me better by the MB name Phantom Rink Rat. I came up with this name since I'm a figure skater who has spent a lot of time in ice rinks and my very first competition song was from Phantom of the Opera :o) I created a blog to challenge myself and to create a fun place for me to share my scrapbook layouts and cards (and some pictures of happenings in my life).
