You Are Amazing scrapbook layout made using the NEW Florals Embellished cartridge

Hello, everyone!

I hope you are all having a great week! I am having a busy one, but am getting excited about my birthday dinner that is on Sunday! I hate getting older, but I love going out to dinner with my family for my birthday!

Today I have a layout that is made using the NEW Florals Embellished cricut cartridge. This cartridge has some fun word art and GORGEOUS multi-layered cuts on it. It is definitely one of my favs from the release!

I used a mix of Bella Blvd paper and SU! paper. The ribbon is also from SU!
I cut the flower out at 3 1/2". The semi-scalloped circle is cut out at 4" and then again at 3 1/2".
The title is cut out at 3".
And now a word from our sponsor *wink*

This year at CHA Provo Craft nominated four products to the Innovation Product Showcase. Yudu CardShop is currently listed among the top 20 new products and the winners will be announced at the show. We are very proud of Yudu CardShop and look forward to demonstrating it and showing it off this year at CHA.
All four of our nominated products will be highlighted on CHA TV – Cricut Imagine, Cricut Cake Mini, YourStory Photo and Yudu CardShop.  CHA will be webcasting the hottest products live from the Show floor for 2 hours a day. CHA-TV is a free webcast portal for the craft & hobby industry. Two-time Emmy Award winner and CHA’s National Spokesperson Terri O will be conducting the daily interviews from 11 am – 12 pm and 1 pm – 2 pm PT live from the CHA-TV Broadcast booth on the Show floor.

jamme said...

Love some of the elements of your card. The flower looks way to complicated for me. I'd have a heart attach,or panic attack trying to figure out which paper to use with which layer.
So excited to see the new products at CHA, I'll be sure to tune in.

Happy birthday Melanie! My mom's birthday is today (29th) and I made her an awesome card on my cricut! She is battling cancer for the third time and having a hard time with the chemo. I made her a vintage card with a picture of her as a teen-ager, she is 78 today! Can't wait for her to see the card. Love my cricut and your website!
