Cricut Circle Magazine Challenge – November 2010

Cricut Circle Magazine Challenge – November 2010

The challenge was to make an ornament that could hang from the Christmas tree. It needed at least 5 circuit cuts and some other Provo craft tool.

This is a 6 cut ornament. Three long ornaments cut from the imagine Snow Angel cart along with three inner circle designs. I flood-filled the blue-sided ornament, as there was no pre-designed one in a third shade. I handed colored over/embellished the existing designs with lots of glittery, shiny tools. The sparkle does not show very well in the photos.

Items Used:
Plain white card stock
Imagine machine
Snow Angel cartridge
I-Rock (3 gems - hard to see in photo)
Glitter pen and red embossing pen (love these pens I got from the CK convention)
Crystal stickles
Pearl, red and emerald smooch
Various colored pens/markers
Glue dots
Sparkly brown ribbon

There you have it! This is  not  as cool as some others I have already seen posted on the blog – but this was soooooo easy to make with my wonderful Imagine!

A Halloween and a Fall Layout


The spider was cut from the Designer Calendar cart and her head is an apple shape from the Celebrate with Flourish cart -- pop-dotted for depth. The spider has 2 red brads for eyes, a scrap of white for fangs, and a mini pom-pom for her egg sack. She is covered with paper glaze to get the shiny look. I used the same Celebrate with Flourish cart for the title “Trick-or-treat”. Various sizes of a card base from A Child’s Year were used for the photo mats. The layout was topped-off with brads and spider ribbon. I belive the patterned paper is by Creative Imaginations.

Happy Fall Y’all!
This layout was originally for a challenge on the cricut circle board a month or so ago, but I was not able to post it in time. .

I used the Old West cart for the nice box lettering. The scarecrow, tree, and fall leaves all came from the Celebrate with Flourish lite cart. A jack-o-lantern was cut from a sheet of paper and used for the scarecrow’s head. The moon is just a plain circle, cropped. A “ribbon hole” punch was used on the layered rectangle frame and a soft sage green ribbon was weaved thru for the final touch. Sorry, I do not recall who the fall patterned paper is by.
