Project Eighty - two

Hello Again!

I love this time of year. My birthday and anniversary are just a few days apart. My awesome husband just let me go on a craft shopping spree. We have been doing this for a few years, which I love. This is when I buy those odd goodies I have been putting off.

Knowing this, I subscribed to the monthly Cricut images. This is my second month and I am in love with it. There are a few cartridges you don't get and will have to still buy, but they are very few. So I have been having a blast playing with the cartridges I didn't have. My new favorite is Tags, Bags Boxes and More 2. I took me a few cuts to figure out what I was doing wrong. You really need the scoring blade for this one. So one if the fun things I bought was in fact the scoring blade. I LOVE IT!.

OK so this project is a card I made for a challenge over at Bitten by the Bug 2.
We had to alter a cut. SHHHH .... this card is also my anniversary card for my husband. We will be married 19 years on the 10. Where has the time gone. You still have 2 days to enter yourself, so pop over and check it out.


 OK standard 5.5 x 4.25 inches card Stampin Up Not Quite Navy
The cloud paper is from DCWV Stack Sunday Afternoon cut at 5.25 x 4 inches
The sentiment is from Peachy Keen's Stamp of the Month Kit from February 2014.

Tea Bag
this is from Tags Bags Boxes and More 2 from Cricut.
with the height at 3.5 inches.
The paper is from DCWV Sunday Afternoon also.
OK I used Cricut Craft room on this one.
Layer 1 the actual piece I want to cut.
Layer 2 The scoring for the piece.
Layer three the words for the gel pens.

With this one you score first, gel pens second and third you cut. Loved it and super easy!

I then cut the sides of the tea bag so you could open it for a secret message.
I then added a heart from Cricut Create a Critter at 2.5 inches. I used the heart to hold the bag closed. I glittered the heart to make it special!!
The phrase in the bag was a phrase from the cartridge and I used my Cri Kit Pens.
This was fun to make!

Have a Magical Day!
