My Sheri Crafts - Last Day to Wear White

Welcome  to Glenda's Cards

Are you ready for another fun challenge at My Sheri Cards! With Labor Day traditionally being the last day to wear white, our design team sister Sarah challenges us to use White on White. Of course this can be a card or any project as long as it is white on white.
My card measures 5" x 6 1/2 " cut from Colorbox white paper. Would you believe that I did not use any Cricut cuts on this card!
Cuttlebug -  Madison folder. This is a 5x7 folder that I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby recently. I embossed a piece of white paper and layered it on the card front.
Cheery Lynn - French Pastry Doily Die was used for the scallop mat.
Martha Stewart - Lace Scallop Heart. I punched out three hearts to give it dimension--no room to use a pop-dot.
Recollections - White pearls  and 3 Girls Jam Crinkle Ribbon.

That is my white on white card. I am pleased with the looks of the card. I did not add a sentiment on the front of the card, but I am thinking it will be a needed anniversary card.

Be sure to stop by My Sheri Crafts and see all the beautiful projects by the design team and our guest designer. For more details on our projects, please visit the individual blogs. We appreciate your comments!
Now it is your turn to make a white on white card or project and enter the challenge. Several Ooh La La awards will be given and one person will be chosen to be our next guest designer!

BBTB2 - Back to School

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It is time again for another fun and inspirational Cricut challenge at BBTB2! Our talented design team member Brenda is the hostess for our Back to School challenge. You can use any Cricut cartridge for your card, layout, or project, as long as it is about going back to school! We ask that you mention the name of the Cricut cartridges used for your project in your blog post.

For my project, I decided to do a scrapbook page. Earlier in the year, I received a DCWV Assorted Open Stock paper pack entitled School Days. This page is Foil Learning Tree from that pack. I thought Cricut cuts would accent the cute apple tree and the letters around it which are printed on the designer paper. It is not very noticeable in the photo, but the apples are a red foil paper.
Cricut Cartridges:
Wrap it Up- Page 27  School house card is cut 6.50". While cutting some school house images for an earlier posted project, I cut two cards giving me the extra card for this project.
Nate's ABC's - Page 22 Bus cut 1.50". Page 68 Pencil cut 2.5". Page 49 - Grass is cut 2". The letters A, B, C and numbers 1, 2, 3 are cut at 1".
Celebrate with Flourish - Back to School is cut 2".

Photo of the inside of the card! I will add a photo of my grandson who started the second grade and the journalling later. I do not have the photo yet.

Other supplies: The Paper Studio ribbon...looks like it need ironing!
Transparent photo corners are used on the back part of the schoolhouse card. I did not glue it down on the page. 
Versa Magic Gingerbread inking.
