December Cricut Circle Magazine Challenge~Christmas Box or Bag

I used SEI paper from the Alpine Frost line. I cut the bag from Tags, Bags & Boxes Cart. I decorated it with a Tree cut from Christmas Cart I got free from the downloads to my Gypsy. The deer, snowflakes and poinsettia from Winter Woodland Cart. I embellished with Crystal, Holly, Candy Cane and Black Diamond Stickles. To complete the requirement of using something from a sponsor to Cricut Circle Magazine, I used my Imaginisce I Rock and adhered green rhinestones for some bling. I used some Sheer ribbon for the bows. It's kind of over the top but I plan to use it for a gift for a good friend who will appreciate all the work I put into it.

Circle Challenge Week #7 Thank You Card & Color Challenge

This weeks entry has the requirement of 4 colors and it is to be a Thank you card. I used Basic Grey Green at Heart. I stitched around the base and then cut for circles and four flowers from George Cart and Thank you from Alphalicious Cart. I embossed the circles with the Circles embossing folder and the flowers as well. I used a stitched brad from Green at Heart for the center of the flower.

Ornament Contest Entry for Circle Magazine

It's difficult to get a good picture but I used SEI paper from the Christmas Mint Collection. The biggest cut is from French Manor Cartridge and I cut 2 of the same pieces and glued them back to back and then cut one in half and glued it to make it 3D. The paper I used on this cut was Peppermint Bark. Then I cut the center snow flake from Winter Woodland Cartridge and used Meringue (pearl paper). I cut the other two snowflakes from the same cartridge (Winter Woodland) and used Marzipan and Raspberry Truffle. I took the inside of the first cut from French Manor and cut it in half gluing again back to back to make it thicker and then I cut it in half and used my Cuttlebug with the Snowflakes embossing plate to give the last cut some dimension and to stick to the rules of using two Provo Craft Products. I tied the snowflakes on with fishing line and added some Swarovski crystals to make it sparkle. The ribbon to make the loop to hang on the tree is from Stamp'in Up.
