Wild by Nature Cricut Layout



Hi, this is Joy and today's layout is made using the new Cricut Give A Hoot cartridge!

I had so much fun making this layout - that is, until I ended up spilling glue all over my shirt and pants, the desk, papers on my desk and the fox die cut I was putting together. Here's a tip: if the glue bottle seems jammed, don't keep squeezing....almost the entire large bottle of Scotch glue went everywhere! Oh, and did I mention that this glue dries really fast? Yeah, it was great...

OK, enough of my crafting accidents...on with the details.





Cuts:

Tree is cut at 10 1/2"
Fox, owl and hedgehog are cut at 2"





Hedgehog needs to be layered from back to front and was a bit tricky to line up.

Wild by Nature is cut at 3"
Border grass and flowers are cut at 3 1/2", making it 10" long. I cut 3 sections and trimmed down.





I ran the Wild by Nature word art and flowers through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. The fox was cuttlebugged with the swirls folder.



I used the DCWV Green Stack -it's just perfect with this cartridge! I also used Core'dinations and Club Scrap cardstock for cutting. Ribbon is from American Crafts.

You won't want to miss Melanie's Fancy Card tomorrow - she's the queen of fancy cards - they are always gorgeous!

Love the layout Joy!! The last 4 new carts are really really great (to me that is!) and seeing all these pretty things made with it makes me want to have them even more!!

Thanks for the glue tip! (is it bad if I giggle a little?? heehee). For me, I just love using spray-glue (a permanent one, either from scotch or the one from crafter's companion). No messing about if there is glue everywhere or not, just a little sppphhrrttttt and done :)

Joann said...
