FCCB Challenge #113: Memorial Day

Hello Everyone,

There is a new challenge up at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. This week our theme is Memorial Day. Make a project using the color RED plus anything that makes you think of Memorial Day (ie. a flag, military symbol, or poppy). 

I would love to dedicate this card and post to all the service men and women in the military. There are so many families that make the ultimate sacrifice and we will never be able to thank them enough. 

My card this week was made with Stand and Salute cartridge. This cart has proven to be very useful in my carts library. 

What was used:
Cricut Stand and Salute
Sizzix Dots Embossing Folder
Martha Stewart School Days Paper Stack
Paper Pizazz Navy with Stars
Sentiments were printed on my computer.

Please stop by Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog and see all the inspiration from the Design Team and I hope to see what you have created for Memorial Day.
I hope you will all enjoy Memorial Day and remember the service of the militaries around the world. 

Happy Scrapping!

Hello everyone,

Its Monday so its time for  a new weekly challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. This week our challenge is You did it! Make a graduation project. 

I made a simple money/ gift card holder card for my project. I started with a 5 1/2 X 12 inches piece of black cardstock, punched, scored and trimmed it into a 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 folded card. I really liked the 'Reach for the Stars!' sentiment as a little encouragement for the new grad.

What was used:
Cricut Georges and Basic Shapes
Cricut Wrap It Up
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
EK Success Binding Edge Punch
Hampton Art '4 the Grad' Stamp set
Recollections Cardstock
DCWV Black Congrats Paper
DCWV Gold Script Designer Paper
DCWV Gold Stag Star Paper
Vandoros Gold Twine
Black Ink

As usual the Fantabulous DT have loads of inspiring ideas to share with you and then you can upload your graduation projects to inspire us. I can't wait to see what you have created.

Happy Scrapping!
