Here is a layout where I utilised the SCAL program with Cricut cartridge Wall Decor and more. Firstly I drew a frame and the swirls, which I then scanned. I then opened up SCAL and imported the image I just had scanned in.
I then cut the flowers, hinges, title etc, from wall decode and more. I used a plastic sheet to ensure the smaller frame cut would remain strong and also to create the window effect. the frame and titled were paint dark brown then once dried I stippled over the lop with gold paint.
Glimmer mist was used to make the flowers sparkle.
For the week 9 challenge I am going to utilise the gypsy and the welding tool to recreate a similar layout as SCAL is no longer available for purchase. I love the Art Philosophy cartridge as it has so many cuts to choose from, from frames to beautiful 3D flowers.
Last weekend I started a project, actually make that 2, at Mandy's place from Scrappy Go Lucky. One was a mini album for challenge 8 of Strut your cuts and the other was to cut out every single box from Tags, bags and boxes 2. As usual this ended up taking on a whole new life of its own not to mention gave me a realisation that I need more time if I am going to commence projects that are bigger than Ben Hur. I am not sure when the mini album will be up on the SGL blog as I have experienced a few technical difficulties with trying to post it there. But here is a sneak peak of a couple of pages.
And here is the sneak peak of 3/4 of the different boxes you can cut with Tags, Bags and Boxes 2.
My youngest son had to make a poster for school regarding sport. Luckily I had the cricut cartridge sports mania. Here is what my creative boy came up with.
When it comes to school projects and helping out the after school care, the cricut is worth its wait in gold for me. With that said I am off to cut out 40 Easter baskets from Tags, bags and boxes 2 for the After School care group.
