Purple Princess

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge is having a 'Sparkle & Bling' theme this week and I immediately thought of this layout.  My Purple Princess Party layout is all about the Sparkle & Bling!

I used Cricut cartridge 'Ornamental Iron' to cut the door and windows and then I added bling.  The crown invitation was made using 'Indie Art'.  The photos were arranged to look like a castle and the windows were used for journaling.

Ribbons & Buttons

Here is my challenge for Fantabulous Cricut Challenge this week - Ribbons & Buttons. 

Here I've used two kinds of ribbon and two heart shaped buttons.  I threaded the ribbon through the button holes and tied the ribbons on top of the buttons.

The title is from Cricut cartridge 'Once upon a Princess'.

Dinosaur party

My son wanted a dinosaur party for his 6th birthday - Sixosaurus!

Here's the layout I did for it including the invitation (Dinosaur skeleton) which can be pulled out from its pocket (along with some more journaling).

I used Cricut cartridge Dinosaur Tracks for the skeleton and rocks.

Grid stencils

I am loving my Grid Stencil that I bought at SENZ this year.  I find it great for doing layouts where I have no plan what to do with my photos and when I want to use lots of photos.  Of course I'm a big fan of block type layouts anyway, so its all good!

Check out what I've done so far...
