Art Celebration

Happy Friday!  If you happen to be a Cricut Fan then you know yesterday was Hello Thursday and you know what that means!!! If you are not, here is the low down...Once a month Provo Craft releases all the new cartridges for that month and shares them with the world on this special day.  For those of you who are members of the Cricut Circle, you got to see your peaks on Wednesday! The projects I am sharing with you today are also up on the Official Cricut Blog.  Make sure you stop by there for more details and to check out all the new cartridges and projects that were created by the Cricut Circle Design Team. You will also want to leave a comment over there as well by Midnight, Saturday, July 30th, 2011.  On Sunday they will randomly select a WINNER from the comments to win $100 of Cricut.com Credit! How awesome is that?!

For this project I used the new cartridge called Art Nouveau!  It is so unique and different from the other Cricut cartridges! It has a wonderfully grown-up, elegant feel to it.  Taking that into consideration, I decided to try and stretch it's use and used it on a layout of my niece who is only 3 in this photo.  I think the images are just gorgeous and call for a bit of glitter and glam.  I ran out of time, but I am still planning on creating a card with one of the beautiful female images on this cartridge!

My next project was created using the Something to Celebrate cartridge!  It is full of great images for just about anything you want to celebrate.  It also contains images to help you celebrate that special something including a super cute candle font, boxes/treat containers, cards, and banner shapes! I again chose to show its versatility and created a layout of my niece on her 5th birthday!
 
 

Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
Happy Hugs!

  1. Hi there, Juliana! What cute projects you have here. And how fun to see your wonderful designs for the Cricut blog. I really adore the beach page. The wavy circle is awesome and I love the cuts. And what a happy birthday page, too. I don't own a Cricut, and I am so amazed at all you can do with them. You're making me start to re-think. :)

  6. I came over from the BoBunny site. Wow, I love all the Cricut images. I am a Cricut newbie still, but I love what you can do with this great machine - it can enhance so many projects. Thanks for a chance to win.

  7. I was just on the Bo Bunny site and read your "About Me". I would also one day be able to go part time so I could spend more time scrapping! Totally love this layout. The colors are amazing together.

  8. Love both of your layouts! Loving the lace blossoms on the first layout... i bought a couple of them a few months ago and still haven't used them yet! Any idea on how I can make that blossom boyish looking on a boy's layout!? LOL..
