My entry for the Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge #3

This is my entry for the Weekly Challenge #3: AUTUMN SPLENDOR! Color Challenge on the Circut Circle blog. The project is to include gray, orange, tan and burgundy, and add lots of texture. I managed to use all of the colors,  embossed the tree trunk, and layered the leaves to make them stand out a little.

Cricut Circle Blog Weekly Challenge

Here is my entry for the weekly challenge on the new Cricut Circle Blog. The challenge is to make a project using the French Manor cartridge, using at least 2 different cuts, and add some jewels or pearls. The card and all of the cuts on it are from that cartridge.. Since there is no shadow feature available, I offset the layers to give it a little contrast. I was going to add more jewels, but I like it just as it is.

Flamingo and Hibiscus Birthday Card

This birthday card for my daughter took way longer than it should have, but that is because I could not decide exactly what the design was going to be, I just knew it was going to have hibiscus flowers and a flamingo. I'm happy with how it turned out. I used the Cricut Life is a Beach cartridge and the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, and Diamond Stickles.

Wedding Card

I had 2 weddings to make cards for in the last couple of weeks, so made them the same. I embossed and used Stickles. I love the pocket inside this card pattern for enclosing gift cards.


Today I have been busy making my daughter's birthday card, so will post that tomorrow.
