Fantabulous Cricut "Share The Love" Crawl!

Welcome to Cute Cards And Crafts By Jamie and the fourth Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop! 
Valentine's Day is in a week and everyone at Fantabulous Cricut has decided to Share the Love!   Each Design Team member will be featuring an original Valentine-themed project that includes the word LOVE somewhere on it.
If you've come from visiting Helen @ Crafting Cricut Mom, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE.
Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at some of our DT members' blogs, AND there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Share the Love" project at FCCB!
For my project I decided to go with a cute wall art. The scalloped squares are from a pre-made Die Cuts With A View stack so all I had to do was tear out the 3 grey sheets they are 8x8. Next I found some pattern paper I wanted (this happens to be DCWV as well) and I scored it with my Martha Stewart score board at every 1/2 inch mark. If you are doing fan folds I would highly recommend NOT using a light weight paper such as pattern paper, I had tons of problems with it but loved it so much I couldn't throw it out and start over with anything else! So after I was done with that I Used my Storybook cartridge and cut the "I" and "U" out at 3-3/4 on some dark red cardstock. I used my Sweethearts cartridge and cut that cute scalloped circle out at 3-1/2. I used George to cut the inner white circle out on a Terrifically Tacky Tape sheet and then after I had stuck it to the red hear I flocked it with white. I also used some silver cord to go around the heart leaving enough to tie it into a bow in the bottom right hand corner! I used my Mini Monograms to cut 2 small scalloped circles out of a different shade of grey at 2-1/4. I find that hot glue works best for adhering the fan folds so I used that to adhere everything on. I found this cute variegated pink ribbon in my stash and added it to the top for a cute "hanging" look.

This is really cute......I just got my Cricut from Santa so I am still learning about all the things it can do. My 8-year-old daughter had to do a project in school...she was running for an election as part of a Social Studies unit and we prepared her campaign poster using my Cricut. All of the kids loved it, and her teacher said it was wonderful. Thanks for the ideas. Love your blog.

Amber said...
