Cricut Circle Montly Challenge

I completed my entry for the Monthly challenge on the circle blog. This challenge was all about Banners. I used the Inspriation banner sentiment BE MINE for my banner and used my Imagine for most of it. I printed the pink paper for the pennents from Lori's Garden and also the medalion was printed from Lori's garden. The letters were cut from the Country Life cart on my Imagine. I made rosettes using tissue paper that surprisingly was a perfect match to the colors from the Loris Garden cart. This was the biggest challenge as I had never made rosettes before and didnt know what I was doing at all. I think I could have done better with a little more practice but they did turn out better than I had expected! I lightly glittered around the rosettes and used my pearl viva pen to make little pearls on the letters. I cuttlebug'd the pennents and sanded then to distress them a little and that really made them pop. The pictures are not doing this any justice it is really pretty and soft in person but I cant take a picture to save my life.

Valentine Card

This is the second Valentine card I completed this weekend. I used a roller stamp for the background and stamped I Love you. I ct the heart's from my Cricut, I think I used Doodlecharms but I dont really remember which heart I cut.

Valentine 2011

I was able to get 2 Valenentine cards completed this weekend and here is one of them. This was such a simple card. I used a roller stamp of hearts for the background and then stamped the little cups of hearts image, I used Tombow markers to color in the image and addes some stickles and a viva pearl pen. I placed a pink glitter frame around the image. The Kiss Kiss sentiment is from The Scrapmaster's Ultimate Sentiments stamp set.

Just Because

I have been fairly busy crafting this weekend and this is one of the cards I completed. It is a just because card and I was insired by a card I saw in this months Cardmaker Mag. I thought it was so pretty I had to give it a shot. I made this with scraps from a banner project I am working on for the Circut Circle monthly Challenge. I printed the pink paper with my Imagine from the Loris Garden cart and also printed the pattern paper from one of the patterns on this cart. I stamped the tree (from Imaginisce) and used Sweet pea flower soft on the branches and leaves. The sentiment is from the Ultimate Sentiments line from The Scrapmaster.
