My Merry Christmas Project for you

This is my version
I was doing some web searching and found this blog: by Natasha Zandbergen from Calgary, AB, Canada.  I loved her Family Frame it is on the right hand side under tutorials for sale-yes I bought the tutorial.I It is  Stampin Up, but I kept looking at it and thinking:  This looks like Lori's Garden in many ways  I believe if I am going to CASE a project I will buy it to support the designer hope you will to.

 Here is how I made this 12 x 12 page;
Using the Cricut Imagine and Lori's Garden This 12 x 12 is the back ground.
Now using shapes you will use the rounded corner square sized at 3.  You will need 9 of them so pick your backgrounds fill those in  and cut out.
Now using the font from Reg. Cricut Cart Nursery Rhymes I cut the letters and the background.  On my CI I did the shadow for a,m,i,l,y in gray and cut the letters in brown at 2.5.  for the F background was gray and the F was in brown cut at 2.5.
Then I used the Reg. Cricut Cart A child's year  cut the shadow in gray at 2.5 and the image in brown at 2.5.
I used the 3M foam tape and attached the letters and image to the squares to give them dimension.
NOW to get a frame.  Enjoy.

Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge #12 "All about 9"

Weekly Challenge #12: Nine Ladies Dancing Challenge!

We have a really fun challenge for you today! For the Nine Ladies Dancing Challenge we want you to strut your stuff with your Cricut Circle Exclusive “Shall We Dance?” cartridge (or similar images from another Cricut cartridge). You can create any kind of project you would like . . . but here is the twist . . . there needs to be NINE of SOMETHING on your project. Nine of anything! Nine buttons, nine flowers, exactly nine letters in a title, etc. Just as long as their is nine of something. Have fun!

The fine print to the contest:

Project must be newly created for this challenge and must include at least 2 different cuts from any Cricut cartridge to qualify. This challenge is open to Cricut Circle Members only.

My Take on this Challenge:

Nine Letter Banner all done on the Cricut Imagine

Here is what I used:  Cricut Imagine:  Snow Angel Cartridge:  Bonus Feature 
  • I selected the bonus feature that reads peace & joy.  Once it is on the preview mat select "Fit to page".  All the words fit onto one page.
  • I then used the shape from the shape icons on this cartridge and did the fill from the Snow Angel Cart.  I sized the shape image at 3.5  and cut out 9 of them.  This did take 2 pages and I noted that when I went to cut the second page my CI would not do it, so I ended up just cutting another page 1.
  • Once cut out.  I adhered the letters to the base with 3M foam dimensional tape.
  • I used Stickles for the "snow".  and jewels and pearls for the centers of all flowers.
  • Stickles and Pearls for the letters

    stickles and jewels for the &
    I then used Stampin' Up Ribbon  to attach the letters to the ribbon I used mini binder clips in white.
  • I attached it to the wall by using the double sided foam tape.  ENJOY!!!
