Another Shape Card using Sentimentals Cricut Cartridge

I used the card feature on page 35 for the base of this card.  I cut the card image at 4-3/4".  I cut the frame three times from page 29, and glued the layers together for a chip board look.  I used white cardstock for the first two layers, so that I could use the center oval for the center of my image.  I used the oval cut out to stamp an image in the center.  I used pop dots on the frame, and also for the center white oval.  I added some white ribbon and white pearls to complete the look.  On one of the pictures you will notice that I did not add the layer.  I didn't realize there was a layer available till later.  The other photo has the layer added.  I kinda like the look of both.  Thank you again for visiting my blog.  I appreciate you so very much.

Shape Card using Wild Card and Bloom Cricut Cartridges

Hello Scrappers,

I decided to make a shape card using two older cricut cartridges. The doily card is from the Wild Card Cartridge, and the Birdcage is from the Bloom Lite Cartridge. Below are the sizes of all the cuts.

  • Doily-cut at 5” with liner for the inside
  • Cut a second liner at 5-1/2” for the front circle. Run the large circle through your cuttlebug. I used the Swiss dots folder.
  • Birdcage-cut at 3-1/4” I cut the image 4 time to make it look like chipboard.
  • Bird-cut at 2-1/2”
  • I tied two pieces of ribbon together to make the bow. I used a ¾” satin ribbon and layered lace beaded ribbon on top.
Feel free to use the colors I selected. Or feel free to use your favorite colors.

Hello Scrappers!!!  I have lost my voice, and I still wanted to share a project with you.  I cracked myself up when I watched the video.LOL  Here are the steps for creating this easy tree.
  • Cut 4 scallop circles
  • make a score line so that you have 5 scallops on one side of the circle
  • fold and flip scallop over
  • fold the two sides up so that you have a point at the bottom of the scallop
  • attach the three folded scallops to the forth flat scallop
  • cut a tree trunk in any shape you desire.
  • cut away the exta piece of the flat scallop and attach the trunk to the back of the cluster of scallops.  Now you have a tree!!!

Create A Critter Card

This is an adorable little monkey.  I cut him out twice, and cut the monkey head off from the second completed monkey. Don't worry he is fine.   Then I added one of the wobble pieces to the back of the cut piece.  I attached it to the completed monkey, and now his head moves!!!!  Thank you Stacy for your inspiration on the Create A Critter Series.
