Fantabulous Cricut Challenge--Get Organized!
So, the challenge over at FCCB this week for Challenge Me Monday is a 2013 Get Organized Cricut Crawl. Since I have made a commitment to get back into my craft room and get back into blogging for 2013, I decided I needed to make a light box to photograph my creations. The challenge includes a project to help you get organized anywhere in the house, and it must include at least one Cricut cut.
To start, I used a Priority Mail cardboard box that had arrived with some goodies inside a few weeks ago. I covered the inside with white paper. Then, I used my trusty ATG to cover the outside with some cute (and cheap) scrapbook paper from Target. My signature color is pink, so it was quite the departure for me to go with this Circus-y lookin' stuff, but I do like how it turned out. Then I cut the camera layers from the Create a Critter cartridge. I used my Gypsy to line them up (each piece fit on a 4x4 piece of cardstock). Then I used my Gypsy to weld letters from the Lyrical Letters cartridge for the sentiment. I layered everything up, cut out the turquoise paper around the lettering, and added some accents with the gelly roll pen. I really, really like it, and it will make my photography simpler...yay, me!
