Some Great News and a New Project

I am SO VERY EXCITED to tell you that I am joining the brand new Cut it Up Challenges Design Team!

Cut it Up Challenges is a brand new challenge blog that focuses on using die cuts in your paper crafting.    Challenges will be starting September 7th, will run for two weeks, and there will be prizes!  You know me well enough to know that you will be seeing a lot of work coming from my Cricut.  But when you participate in our challenges, you can use absolutely any die cuts!  Don't you think this is going to be a fun?!  I can't wait when we start our challenges next Friday, so be sure to stay tuned!

To get you in the mood, I've created a pretty little project using the Cricut Artiste cartridge.




I used the Artiste cartridge to cut the box, the bows, and the rolled flowers.  You could use the box for a gift, but as you can see, I turned it into an exploding photo album.  What do you think of the new Colonial White Rosette Ribbon?  I love it, and I simply add some pearls to the center to give it even more of a feminine look.

I am really excited to be inspired by all of you when you participate in the Cut it Up Challenges!!
