Onto the projects:
Cricut Country Life
The strawberry and "berry sweet" are both from this new cartridge. The scalloped circles and regular circle are from Mini Monograms. Paper is by My Minds Eye. Ribbon by Papertrey Ink.
Cricut Winter Frolic
Non-traditional Christmas colors work great with this bird in a tree! I loved this image the moment I saw it and it paired perfectly with the "noel" word art also on the cartridge! This is going to be a heavily used cartridge in my house. I thought nothing could replace Winter Woodland in my heart but this new one has! Wait until you see the word art! Love it!
Cricut Happy Hauntings
This cartridge has a whole row of different 3-D projects and I thought this frame was super cute! I cut it at 7" and just used adhesive along the edges so I could add my photo in later. It was extremely easy to assemble and I used chipboard for the back layer and for the frame support to give it strength. The "Boo!" word art was cut at 2". There is fabulous word art on this cartridge with all kinds of different fonts. Paper by Basic Grey and DCWV.
Cricut - Rock Princess
I decided to make this word art (she's a firecracker) a little more 4th of July thematic. It pairs perfectly with the stars images on this cartridge, as well as the "stars" Cuttlebug folder.
