There are a lot of contest to enter this week with the Cricut Circle. I love entering these contests to challenge myself to do new things.
This is my card entry for a contest that is due Tuesday the 18th. Provo Craft and Anna Griffin are premiering new products on HSN on January 20th so they are having a card making contest. The directions are to create a card using atleast one Anna Griffin product (it can be anything!) and one or more of the following cartridges. You may use other cartridges on the card, but the majority of the design needs to represent one or more of the following cartridges:
- Don Juan Cartridge
- Winter Lace Seasonal Cartridge
- Wall Decor & More
The white lacy trim on the sides and the red paper is Anna Griffin paper I found at Michaels. The snowflakes are cut from Winter Lace snowflake 2 cut at 5 " and 3 1/2" and include shadows. I then added pearls and Stickles.
This Project is also for the Cricut Circle. Find something from the thrift store to repurpose with your imagination and your Cricut Machine. Please use at least four Cricut cuts in your design. Upload before and after shots of your project to the blog under the Magazine Challenge Tab. Only one entry per person. Entry deadline is Friday, January 14th, 2011.
I found this shadowbox which originally was for magnetic paper dolls for 1.99 at a thrift store in Lompoc. The top pictures show what it looked like originally and the bottom picture is the photo shadowbox I made of my sweet granddaughters. Katie is now 1 and Kenzie is 2 months. I cut a variety of flower cuts from the new Mother's Day Bouquet cart and made the flowers. Cuts were made at 2 ", 1 1/2' and 1". The names were cut from prism paper with Classic Cricut Font. I used my Gypsy to weld them together and then added bling to the center of the flowers.
This is my entry for the Cricut Circle Monthly challenge. We were to scraplift a project from the Circle Blog. On 11/16 Cindy Royal (CC designer)
