Thanks You Heartfelt Creations and Cut It Up Challenge Blog!


Just a post, to thank Heartfelt Creations for sponsoring the Cut It Up Challenge and providing my prize.  I used my gift card to get the die Fleur Border and Pocket Die and I made my first card above with it.  The small flowers are also Heartfelt Creations, one of the first stamp and die sets I bought from them and still a favorite!


Also, I just want to make a comment about the packaging this die set came in, I LOVE it!  It is thin and sturdy and I want to buy more for my other thin dies!  Heartfelt Creations can you make these sleeves available for your other dies sets I have had in my stash for a while?  Thanks!

Princess Party Wands with Cricut and Straws


I have a little niece, who I enjoy making crafts for and today I am sharing some wands I made for her princess birthday party.  I started with straws from the dollar spot at Target, and added some blue glitter paper cut in flower shapes with six petals.  I used Tim Holtz's snowflake rosette die to cut the snowflakes and used a pink center instead of white.  


I added buttons to the larger snowflake, and Dew Drops from the Robin's Nest to the smaller snowflakes.  A bit of ribbon to finish and I glued them to the straws with my glue gun.  The larger flowers is made with the Starfruit shape from Preserves.  It is actually a five point flower, but I spliced it in half and duplicated the three petals side.  I then welded the two sides together to get a six petal shape.  The smaller flower is from Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art.

Christmas in July Page with Anna Griffin


I am just getting around to scrapping the last of this years holiday card photos.  The page came together quickly with Anna Griffin and Kaisercraft.  The green die cut layers and the red and gold center layer are Anna Griffin Nifty Nested Layers.  The red and white layer is Kaisercraft North Pole Snowball.  I embellished both die cuts with some Stickles, a silver Sharpie pen, and Bead Landing jewels.  The holly die cuts and silver bow are all left overs from one of Anna Griffin's Christmas card kits.  

Pull It Together

I love how this page appears to have so much texture and depth.  All the time adding the stickles, jewels, and doodling make the doilies appear more lace like.  Don't be afraid to mix doilies from more than one designer and pull them together with the same embellishments on each doily and the same colors.  What are you scrapping with Anna Griffin's Nifty Nested Layers?

Fantasy Paper Carriage Centerpiece


One of the things I love about paper crafting is the opportunity to create my dreams and fantasies in paper for cheap!  Today I am sharing a paper carriage centerpiece I made for a princess birthday party with SVGCuts and Cricut Ornamental Iron 2.  



The SVGCuts directions actually call for another layer of patterned paper, but I wanted it to look like white wrought iron.  So, I searched my Cricut Ornamental Iron 2 Cartridge and found this lovely scroll with a heart motif.  I used some teeny tiny pop dots, pink paper and white paper and some Bead Landing Jewels from Michaels.  Inside the carriage lanterns are yellow dew drops from The Robin's Nest for my candle flame.  To repeat the hearts and fill some empty space, I made small hearts using the pearl jewels.  For the carriage window and the lanterns, I just recycled some plastic packaging from more scrap booking supplies.



Don't be afraid to mix you Cricut Cartridges with SVG files, because the results just might be your dreams come true!  What paper dreams do you want to make?



Supplies
Pink Paper
White paper
Bead Landing jewels
Clear packaging (Window and lanterns)
