I hope you are all ready for another companion challenge. This week's challenge is to create a Project inspired by Birthdays. This could be a card, a layout, an altered item. Anything that you can make using your cricut.
This was actually a huge challenge for me. because out of all the cartridges I own I couldn't think of something that was birthday-ish. But then I remembered I had a Cut that someone had sent me from a RAK from "Flourish Cricut Lite" and it said Happy birthday, So I constructed a 2 page layout from that.
This week's companion is Abby. She made an adorable masculine gift bag with matching card using DCWV the guy stack. DOn't you just love her color combination, the pattern of the paper goes awesome with the Bloc Party Cricut Light Cartridge she used.
I love the combination of patterns and textures, with her card and bag. It gives it extra something and looks fantastic GREAT JOB!!
Also, I have my incredible amiga Momo who was able to whip something seriously last minute, for me . On Such super short notice. So huge HUGS to her!! :) She made this awesome Card using Create a critter Cricut Cartridge. Can you believe how cute this came out!!!
I adore the white stiching around the border of the card, and how it goes together with the ribbon. I think we will all agree that she is great at picking out paper, and that's the hardest part for me
Ok now onto my project. I was inspired by my little brother's Birthday. He just turned 5 (yes I know HUGE age gap between me and him and I used to be the Youngest) so I created a fun layout using my favorite paper Basic Grey Offbeat, ( so sad it's discontinued). I also Used the A Child's Year Cricut cartridge, and all of the little boys are cut at 4.5 inches
I do usually have video for my companion challenge, BUT, I just uploaded a video yesterday :-P
Tomorrow though I will show another project I made with this theme!
The Prize for this challenge is KINDA huge in my opinion!!
