Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Entry

by Ginger on March 31, 2011

Hey everyone, just want to share another card made using the Cricut Imagine. This card is my entry over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.

Fantabulous Card Front

The challenge this week was to create a project using a spring theme. I used my Cricut Imagine along with the Create A Critter Cartridge and the Nursery Tails Imagine Cartridge. The Owl was cut at 3 inches using the Create A Critter Cartridge.

I then flood filled the image with the designs from the Nursery Tails Imagine Cartridge. The card is an A2 size card which measures 4-1/4 by 5-1/2 inches. I punched out the label then stamped Spring is Here using Timber Brown Staz On.

Happy Wednesday! Just wanted to share my last project using the rest of the Confetti design paper from American Crafts. I created a short video showing the details.

This mini album as well as the cards and layouts are my submission for my Local Scrapbook Stores’ Design Team. Thanks for watching!


Hey everyone! I made a couple of cards from the leftover American Crafts Confetti Collection. The first card is a 5-1/2×5-1/2 inch easel style card.

Birthday Wishes Easel Card

I cut the cupcake with my Cricut using the Doodlecharms Cartridge. The candle, bow, and small cupcake are chipboard pieces from the Confetti Collection.

I added a small scallop photo corner and some glitter rick rack trim. The inside sentiment is cut from the design paper and layered with foam tape.

The second card is an A2 size card. I used my EK Success scallop circle punch and my Fiskars circle punch to create the flower.

Happy Birthday Card

The Happy Birthday sentiment was cut from the design paper.

Party Scrapbook Page Layout

by Ginger on March 28, 2011

Hello everyone, just wanted to share a couple of 12×12 scrapbook page layouts. The first layout uses the Americana Crafts Confetti Collection. I used my Cricut Straight From The Nest Cartridge to cut out the banner and my Cuttlebug to cut out the scallop squares. The scallop square die is from Sizzix.

I layered some yellow Bo Bunny Dot paper along with some white cardstock onto the scallop square photo mats. A small brown photo corner was added to the mats. The balloons, cupcake, and candle are all chipboard pieces from the collection.

The Surprise tag was cut from the design paper and layered onto another piece of design paper then added to the layout with foam tape to add some dimension. I used my Martha Stewart punch to add the scalloped border and layered the Happy Birthday brown satin ribbon on top.

For the second layout I used a piece of solid cardstock for the base of the layout. I cut strips of the Confetti design paper and added them to the side and top. I added some glitter rick rack canvas trim and cut the title, Happy Birthday, from the design paper. I made a large photo mat and three small ones and added them to complete the layout.

The three rosettes were created from the design paper as well. Kathryn from Life on the Scrap Beach has an awesome YouTube tutorial for these rosettes.

Another Cricut Imagine Card

by Ginger on March 26, 2011

Hey everyone, I am really liking my Cricut Imagine. For this card I used my Create A Critter Cartridge along with my Nursery Tales Imagine Cartridge.

Another Cricut Imagine Card

I used the Owl from the Create A Critter and flood filled the image with the design patterns from the Nursery Tales Cartridge. This machine really lets you experiment with the design process. The labels were cut from the stock images that are preloaded on the Imagine machine.

Again, I flood filled the images with the pattern colors from the Nursery Tales Cartridge. I stamped the sentiment Soar and added some ribbon and buttons to finish it off. That’s it! Thanks for stopping by!
