CC - Color Challenge

Hi -

This entry is for the Cricut Circle Color Challenge.  Details below:

The girl is from Forever Young and the frame is from Sophie.

CC - Scraps Only Challenge #3

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).

CC - Scraps Only Challenge #2

Hi Everyone!

Here's my second entry for the Cricut Circle Scraps Only Challenge.

I really like how this challenge is getting me to use up some of the many scraps of paper I've been hanging on to.

The tag will be used for my journaling.

Here's the close up of my cuts that were embossed with the Cuttlebug - the signs, tuft of grass and the leaves on the flowers.

Signs are from Freshly Picked, tuft of grass from Pop-up Neighborhood; flowers and font are from Kate's ABCs.

Me & My Craft Space

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.

Cricut Challenge - Something Old, Something New

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.

Cricut Circle - Scraps Challenge

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.

Cricut Circle - Recipe Challenge

For the CC Recipe Challenge, I made a 5.5" square card.  The sunflower is cut at 3" from Stretch Your Imagination and the butterflies are at 1.5" from Lori's Garden Imagine Cartridge.

Patterned paper is from an old Hot Off the Press paper pack.  I decided it was time to start using those old patterned papers up.

Circut Circle Art Inspiration Challenge

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.

Circut Circle - Silly Scavenger Hunt

My entry for the Cricut Circle Silly Scavenger Hunt.  They provided a list of 20 items and we were given 2 hours to use our cricut and cartridges to cut out each item.
