Bling it ON!! :)

I HAD to use that title!! LOL Over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog we are having a fun and shiny challenge: Create a project using some shine, jewels, glitter etc... I could not resist to include some pearls, and some Stickles on this layout that was inspired by Iris Babao Uy. I made it to give to my mom for Mother's Day, and I am loving it!

My Gypsy has been giving me a lot of problems lately, so I had a hard time cutting the letters using the StoryBook cartridge. What should have taken me two minutes took 30... LOL

The fun part about this layout was to create the lace type effect with paper. In order to accomplish this, I cut the paper in strips of approximately 3-4 inches and I scored it every .5 inches. Then I folded the paper accordiaon style and used a mister to wet the paper. Once it was wet it became moldable so that I could glue it down in a circle.

I used some pearls and lots of Stickles for the letters. I know you cannot see it clearly, but it looks very yummy in person!

Well, I will be leaving on a cruise so I will probably not be able to get on here much (if at all), so I will get back in touch with you guys probably on Friday! I will miss you!

Love in Christ,

Nana
