This week's challenge at Lasting Memories is a real fun one. How many of us got a Cricut cartridge or two for Christmas? I am very excited to say that I did. As a matter of fact, I got 4!! My kids did real good. The challenge this week is to use your Cricut, or other die cuts if you don't have a Cricut.
To create my layout, I followed this week's sketch at Sketchy Thursdays. I really enjoyed this sketch and knew what I wanted to use for my die cuts. Here is the sketch....
Even though I got 4 new cartridges for Christmas, I didn't use any of them for this layout. My friends at Scrappin-n-Chattin are real good about informing the group of sales. Someone pointed us to a site last week that had cartridges on sale for around $16. I ordered 3. I used 2 of them on my page.
For the yellow and light green background, I used the Paper Lace cartridge. I can see I will get a lot of use out of that cartridge. For the title I used Alphalicious. That one has been on my wishlist for a while. I also used 2 Martha Stewart Monarch punches to create the butterlies on the page. The colors I used were chosen to coincide with the Super Bowl challenge at SnC. The challenge was to create a layout using the colors of one of the teams in the Superbowl. I chose Green Bay's colors.
I hope you will play along this week at Lasting Memories. I would love to see how you use your die cuts.
