Hi everyone! Cassie here- your Guest Designer this Friday! You might know me from my blog, Glue Meets Paper, and I'm so excited to be here. I've been a fan of Monique's ever since I started scrapbooking years and years ago :)
For this month Monique and Wendy asked us to center our projects around Breast Cancer Awareness and our Cricut. I was pretty excited to have an excuse to use some pink, I have a little boy so I never get to pull out the pretty floral papers :P
For this first layout I used the Emma's Shoppe collection by Crate Paper (does anyone else love Crate Paper as much as I do? That might be impossible...)
Cricut Cuts: Fight: Hello Kitty Font cut at 1.45" "like a girl!": Designer's Calendar cut at 2.0" Breast Cancer Ribbons: Designer's Calendar cut at 2.0" Scallop circles (these were cut in half, theyre in the top right and bottom left corners): Mini Monograms Journaling Box (I welded a flower to the original journaling box using my Gypsy to create my own custom journaling spot): Storybook cut at 3.23" Butterflies: Storybook cut at 1.35" Flourish: Storybook cut at 1" Heart: Gypsy Wanderings cut at 2.88"
And of course I have to use up all my scraps so I decided to make a matching card with my leftovers. Whenever I make Cricut cuts I usually cut a few more than I expect to need, this way I have extra's if I change my layout design or want to make a cute matching card afterwards. I really wanted to do up the details with this card so I did a lot of layering using my die cuts and some phrase stickers, ribbon, and brads from the Emma's Shoppe collection by Crate Paper. I just love the scallop circles in the Mini Monograms cart, they make the perfect banner when you cut 'em in half :)
So I thought I was done but I didn't want to give up my foray into pink quite that quickly so I decided I had to do one more layout! I kept this one simple and used my Cricut to create the background elements for my page and then to balance the right hand side I added a few fun elements in the upper lefthand corner. And of course I had to finish with some bling for Wendy ;)
Cricut Cuts: think: Printing Press cut at 1.12" Pink: Designer's Calendar cut at 2.24" Scallop Circles: Mini Monograms cut at 3.24" Upper Left Circle: Accent Essentials cut at 2.65" Scallop Borders (Upper left and right hand side): Accent Essentials cut at 0.65" Breast Cancer Ribbon: Designer's Calendar cut at 3.00"
Materials: NoelMignon.com kit "Truly Scrumptious" and Crate Paper: Emma's Shoppe Ribbon and Brads
So there you have it! I hope you enjoyed my journey into the land of pink as much as I did :) And a big thank you to Monique and Wendy for allowing me to Guest Design for them!
