I have another birthday layout to share today!
This was such a fun layout! I did something I've been scared of doing for awhile...I actually used the Cricut I got for Christmas last year!
|I'm not sure how well you can see it in this shot, but the background cardstock is this amazing woodgrain finish cardstock by American Crafts.|
|I used some old Scenic Route paper to make the background piece of this flower embellishement. Here I used the Cricut Plantin SchoolBook cartridge to cut the flowers, hearts, and circles out of a variety of patterned papers.|
|I'm beginning to think that it's impossible for me to create anything anymore without SOME October Afternoon thrown into the mix somewhere.|
|The "spread the love" die cut is from the Amy Tangerine Sketchbook line by American Crafts. I thought it added a nice touch.|
I'm really glad I broke the ol' Cricut out for this layout and since, I've been using my paper scraps to create a barrel (pretty literally, but I'll explain further on another post) full of pre-cut shapes using my cartridges.
Those of you that are still in the Dark Ages with a Cricut like me (instead of being on the Silhouette bandwagon, which seems to be pretty much everyone!), what are your favorite cartridges?
Supplies: patterned paper - My Mind's Eye, Jillibean Soup, Scenic Route Paper Co.; crocheted flower - Bella Blvd; die cuts - Amy Tangerine (American Crafts), October Afternoon; flair - October Afternoon; pearls - Doodlebug Designs; sequins - Pebbles; Other - Cricut cartridges - Graphically Speaking, Plantin SchoolBook
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Tomorrow I'll be back with a brand new feature and my first EVER tutorial!
