BLOGIVERSARY CHALLENGE: Monochromatic Color Challenge!

As I stated in my previous post this would be the last of the BLOGIVERSARY CHALLENGE: over on the Cricut Circle Blog. For this challenge: Create a project of your choice using a monochromatic color scheme. Your project must include at least 2 different Cricut Image Cuts.

I had fun with this one using my newly delivered Chic and Scary cartridge.
I really liked my finished project.

Thanks again for looking and don't worry that this may be my last post for a while as I found a few other challenge to work on with later due dates so stay tuned

The Challenge: Create a project of your choice using the sketch below. Your project must include at least 2 different Cricut Image Cuts. This one was kind of fun for me. I love sing sketches for my cards, otherwise I feel they all start looking the same: a piece of patterned paper with a die cut on it somewhere.

For this card I used patterned paper from my stash, as well as glittered card stock for the pumpkin person. I used Mini Monster to cut the title and the Pumpkin person. This cart has a lot of great cuts for Halloween. I cut the bat from the Hello Kitty Greeting cartridge and used fun foam to make it stick out a little. The ribbon was from stash as well.

As always thanks for looking and look forward to one last challenge. The monochromatic challenge. I already of the project in mind so I should be done in plenty of time.

I've been keeping busy working on these challenges, as some of them have really challenged me.
The Challenge: Use your Cricut machines to create a project using the following “recipe.” It must contain 1) A Title; 2) Atleast 2 Cricut Cuts, and 3) Atleast 3 buttons.

I made this card for my sweet little great neice who will be 3 this Sunday. She is having a wild west party with Pony rides and all. I used the Old West Cricut Cartridge for the Cowgirl, horse and title. Threw in some buttons on the vest and a bling on the halter. Then added the title.

Two more challenges to go all due by midnight on the 14th

Thanks for looking

BLOGIVERSARY CHALLENGE on the Cricut Circle Blog

I had a couple of cards that I needed tt make and I noticed that the Circle Blog was having a few challenges for their blogaversary so I decided to kill two birds with one stone.
The 1st one is from this challenge

The Challenge: Use your Imagine Machine to print a background (it can be a solid color or a patterned paper from your Imagine cartridge) and use it on your project as well as cutting an image of your choice in layers- that’s right, choose the layers option on your image and print out one or all of the layers offered, piece them together on your project!

So I made this cute cupckae card for a friend of mine.

It's really no secret that a few months after I won my Imagine I began to hate it and this would be the last prject that I made with it because I sold the machine the very next day.

For the next challenge we were asked to create a project of your choice with one or more of the Cricut Circle Exclusive cartridges! (French Manor, Shall We Dance, Cricut Everyday, Pop-Up Neighborhood, or Sophie) Your project must include atleast 2 different Cricut Image Cuts. And YES! You can mix in other cartridges with your Circle Exclusive cartridges.
A friend of mine asked to make a card for her to give to a friend and showed me a picture of the gift bag she bought. It was very vintage french so it was nonbrainer that I would turn to French Manor to help me make the perfect card. I found the back on the internet and knew it was just the right element to make my card pop! I added some bling to really set it off.

Thanks for looking and keep checking back as there are still afew more challenges I need ot work on.
