For the hop today, I've created  a fun and girly Valentine's Day card!

This is a 5"x6.5" card; The scalloped overlay and heart-shaped overlay were both cut from the Cricut A Child's Year cartridge at 6.5" each.


The silhouette and the tag were also cut from the A Child's Year cartridge at 3.5" and 1.2" respectively.


I inked all of the edges, added some white faux-stitching and popped all of the cuts up on foam.


The sentiment comes from K. Andrew's It's Valentine's stamp set.

Stuck on U Sketches Design Team Post - "Winter Woodland" 12x12 Double Layout

This week at Stuck on U Sketches are theme is Winter Fun! Well, I've definitely been having fun with my Imagine and as soon as my Snow Angel cartridge arrived in the mail, I knew that I wanted to create a winter woodland layout. I just love the images on this cartridge; they're so quaint and idealic. 

This is a standard 12"x12" double layout that features two 4"x6" photo mats and two 4"x4" photo mats. The background paper, the photo mats and all of the images were printed and cut from the Cricut Imagine Snow Angel cartridge. 


I used the Martha Stewart snowflake border punch to create a accent border on both edges of my layout. I love the lacey edge that it creates and the extra pop of color that it adds to the layout.


I accented my photo mats with twine...


...and layered all of my cuts.


I love the dimension on this layout.



Please stop by Stuck on U Sketches to see what the other, super-talented design team members have created and be sure to post your own "Winter Fun" projects. Stephanie from Whimsical Designs has donated some of her very own stamp collections to some very lucky winners of our sketch and die challenges this month so playing along will be extra fun.

Christmas Tree Place Cards

Hi, everyone! It's been a while since I've posted but I wanted to take a few days off to celebrate the New Year and my birthday. My husband had a huge surprise for me this year and gifted me the Cricut Imagine! I couldn't believe it! Of course, I had to play with it right away so I whipped up these place cards for my parents' Christmas party. I only had a few hours before the party to create these but I think they turned out pretty cute for my first Imagine project. 

I used the Cricut Winter Frolic cartridge for the Christmas tree and filled in the layers with patterns from the Cricut Imagine More cartridge. The frame and background border piece are cut from the same cartridge. The frame was cut in layers, backed with cream cardstock and stamped with everyone's name. I added a bit of faux stitching on the Christmas tree and frame and popped both cuts up on foam for extra dimension.

Cricut cartridges: Imagine More, Winter Frolic
