Stuck on U Sketches Design Team Post - "Journey" 12x12 Single Layout

It's time for another die cut challenge over at Stuck on U Sketches! This week's challenge is "Sky;" your layout should include at least one die cut of something that you would see in the sky. 

This is a standard 12"x12" single layout featuring one 4"x6" photo mat. I absolutely adore hot air balloons so as soon as I saw this challenge, I knew I wanted to include one on my project. The balloon is cut from the Summer in Paris Cricut cartridge and the large mat frame is cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge.

The clouds were cut from the Serenade cartridge and embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder...

...the journey title was cut from the Heritage cartridge and the tag was cut from the Sweet Treats cartridge.

Lately, I've been trying to include more sentiments and stamping on my scrapbook pages and this Inkadinkado stamp worked perfectly.

Cricut cartridges: Summer in Paris, Serenade, Heritage, Sweet Treats and Elegant Edges

Momenta Design Team Project - "Let's Party" Birthday Card/Invite

I'm here with another Momenta Design Team project! Today, I've designed a cute and simple birthday card/invitation. 

I began with a pre-made card from Card Pack NC-1279 and layered it with some designer paper from the Birthday Wishes 12x12 Super Paper Pad. Next I added a chipboard gift sticker from the Party Chipboard Sticker set and finished the card off with a sentiment from the Mini Puffy Word Sticker Set.

Momenta Design Team Project - "Elegant Family" 12x12 Single Layout

Hi, everyone! I'm here with another Momenta Design Team project! I love the contrast of black and white together so when I saw the Momenta Black Tie 12x12 Super Paper Pad, I knew I wanted to create an elegant layout using only these colors. There are so many different patterns and designs in this stack! The possibilities are endless. I layered my background paper onto cardstock, hand cut a border strip and used the Lacy Labels Cricut cartridge to cut a doily shape. 

I adhered a Puffy Title Sticker to a coordinating strip of paper, adhered this to cardstock and popped the whole thing up on foam for more dimension. 

Finally, I embellished the page with these gorgeous Puffy Flourish Stickers. It's hard to see in the photo but they're covered in a beautiful, finely-milled black glitter. So pretty!

Stuck on U Sketches Design Team Post - "T is for Tea Party" 12x12 Double Layout

Today is my first Design Team Post for Stuck on U Sketches! I'm very excited to be joining this design team! Our challenge theme this week is "Play;" I decided to create a sweet layout featuring a tea party theme. 

This is a standard 12"x12" double layout featuring two 4"x6" photo mats and two 4"x4" photo mats. 

The monogram and title are cut from the Kate's ABCs cartridge... well as the teapot, tea cup and hat.

The children's silhouettes are cut from the "A Child's Year" cartridge. 

I also added a few punched butterfly embellishments. 

All cuts have been inked and popped up on foam.

Patches of Pink Design Team Project - "Inspire" 12x12 Double Layout

Time for another Patches of Pink Link-Up Party! August is Happiness Awareness Month and everyone on the Patches of Pink Design Team has created projects which express what makes us happy. One thing that always makes me happy is being creative! I haven't learned how to sew, yet (other than a few small pillows I made when I was little), but one of these days I would love to learn.

For this project, I wanted to create an elegant sewing room scene. All of the papers on this layout come from the K&Company Life's Journey collection; most of the papers in this collection look like fabric so they work perfectly. This is a standard 12"x12" double layout featuring one 4"x6" photo mat and three 4"x4" photo mats.

The title is cut Home Accents Cricut cartridge...

the dress form is cut from the French Manor cartridge, the tag is cut from the Sweet Treats cartridge and the spool of thread is cut from the Country Life cartridge. 

The desk and chair are cut from the Sentimentals cartridge, the sewing machine is cut from the Heritage cartridge and the chandelier is cut from the Home Decor cartridge. 

I wrapped the photo mats in twine and accented them with buttons. I love this paper; it reminds me of old sewing patterns. 

Everything has been heavily inked and all cuts have been popped up on foam for added dimension. 

The tag is hand stamped and attached to the dress form with twine and a small button...  

...and I used small pearls for the drawer pulls.

Whimsical Wednesday Design Team Post - "2011-2012 School Calendar"

Edit: This project was featured in the August 16, 2011 edition of the Cricut Chirp!

Time for another Whimsical Wednesday's Challenge! This week is Challenge #18 - Back to School. I chose this week's theme and we've decided to do something a little different. Instead of creating cards and scrapbook layouts this week, we're creating back to school projects in honor of all the teachers, students and office staff heading back to the classroom over the next few weeks. For my project, I created a 2011-2012 School Calendar! This is a 8.5"x11" calendar book that I created. I recently purchased a binding machine and I have been obsessed with creating books.

The sun, clouds and schoolhouse are cut from the Cricut Pop-Up Neighborhood cartridge...

...the bus is cut from the My Community cartridge...

...and the font is cut from the Kate's ABCs cartridge using the shadow feature. 

The inside covers of the book are lined with an awesome chalkboard print paper from Momenta's All Through the Year paper stack. 

The calendar pages were printed from templates I found online. 

Finally, the back cover features the same polka-dot printed paper from the front cover. 

Please stop by and check out all the other wonderful Back to School projects that the Whimsical Wednesday Design Team members have created and be sure to link your projects up as well!
