I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Brrr! Card - Week 2 Cartridge Challenge

Here is a card I made for both the Cricut Circle Blog Weekly Challenge, AND my own personal challenge of using the cartridges I drew from my jar. I am glad to be able to combine these challenges into one project.

For the Circle Blog Challenge we needed to use metal, white paint, and a snowflake cut.

My metal was a small piece of a self adhesive sheet made by Quickkutz. I embossed it using the cuttlebug snowflake folder.

I used white paint on the edge of the silver cardstock. Its a little difficult to see in the photo. I used Making Memories Scrapbook colors. Spotlight is the name of the paint color.

My snowflake cut comes from the Holiday Cakes cartridge. I just LOVE this cut! I may use it again in a scrapbook page. I cut it at 3 inches, and some of the details on the smaller snowflakes are hard to see, but overall, I am pretty pleased with how well it cut at that small size.

The Brr! is from Winter Frolic. I cut that at 1"

The silver cardstock is some older Creative Memories cardstock. The light and medium blues are both smooth cardstock from my stash of scraps so I am not exactly sure what brand they are.

I finished my card off with some plain white ribbon from the dollar store and some clear gems.
