Today was the day that my once a month group got together and we had decided to go back to how it originally started which was to make Cricut projects ( bring them and details to give others idea’s) and to play with any new cartridges we had picked up. I made 2 cards (one a CAS card) and the other more detailed. I also decorated a gift bag as we always take the person who hosts the get together a hostess gift. I used only Cricut elements except on the gift bag where I used a Cheery Lynn die for the butterfly trail. I found it difficult as I wanted to just go use a die for this or that (no trying to figure out what size to cut it in) but I was pleased with the results in the end.
My new find is this WONDERFUL craft and black paper stack at Michaels called Timeless by Recollections. It has 10 different prints and you get 6 of each sheet. I made all three projects using these papers. LOVE them!!
Flowers from Flowers Shoppe cartridge
The “tendrils” were the left overs after cutting one of the circle flowers. I decided to use them instead of leaves as they dangled off the bag and I didn’t have to worry about them getting smashed flat. None of them are glued down except up under the flower.
The edge across the top is from Elegant Edges cartridge
The butterfly is hand cut and formed from one of the patterned pieces from the Timeless collection (my favorite one of the 10)
The butterfly trail is from Cheery Lynn and this was my only “die” cheat!
