Today is Hello Thursday! This is the day of the month when Provo Craft releases their new Cricut and Imagine Cartridges! There are 10 this month! And each one is cuter than the next! I had the pleasure of working with one called Giant Flowers. I adore flowers. All flowers of all shapes and sizes, and find that I incorporate them wherever I can! So for me this is a dream cartridge! It will be one I use over and over again! How about decorating your presents for the holidays with them? I created this Valentine's box using the rose cut. I used less layers for the rose bud and loved how it turned out! I added some Valentine picks, black tulle, and a tag for the recipient. When using this cartridge I recommend using different shades of the same color and inking the edges a bit. In person it has such beautiful depth!
I like the back of my packages to be just as pretty as the front.....so I added more Valentine picks, lace, black twine, and pearls.
I created a LO for my daughter's room to hang on the wall. I have many scrapbook pages of her in her room. I hate to admit it, but my daughter is a bit of a narcissist! She loves to look at herself....a lot! ; ) I used the Peony cut for this page. And again, used different shades of yellow, brown inked edges, and yes.......a bit of glitter! ; )
This is her page hanging on her wall. I love it against the blue!
Since the flower is so dimensional I bridged the gap by adding layers of tulle and seam binding sort of tucked under it.
The pictures were taken by my I-phone and used the Instagram app to edit the photos. I love the warmth of the photos. I also dug out those letter beads that used to be so popular many moons ago! I love adding unexpected and fun little details to my projects!Kate's ABC's cartridge. (Still one of my all time favs!)
