Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Surprise! I have a project to share with you today that is not a card!
I recently bought the Cricut Sweet Tooth Boxes cartridge and immediately knew which would be my first project to try. I had so much fun being a paper carpenter and I am really pleased with my results. Designer double-sided patterned papers are from K&Company Kelly Panacci Valentine Pad that was bought last Valentine. For the house, I chose the pretty little hearts paper. I was working with the Cricut Craft Room and No 4 Store on page 26. I noticed the handbook shows the store image is the third cut on top line, but it is marked incorrectly. The store is actually the fourth key on the keypad. Cuts were at 10".
To make the store you must cut the main image twice and then there are four layer cuts which have several different pieces. On one layer cut, I used the hide contour feature and separated the images so I could use different papers for some of the images.
I used the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes folder on the white door facing. Do you like the pink polka dot door! The heart on the door is hand cut from one of the pieces of designer paper.
Here is a view of the back of the store building. I love the little window. I run the white paper through the Distressed Stripes folder also. The flower pot and flower cuts are on one of the layer cuts. I added some Recollections Floral Embellishments flowers. On some of the flowers, I added two layers of flowers, a yellow button and some pop-dots for dimension.
This is a side view of the little store. I thought the pretty striped paper would be good for the roof - actually reminds me of a storefront awning! The Sweets signpost was a little taller than I wanted--it went up in the awning so I cut some of pole off. For an extra spash of Valentine look, I added a ribbon bow from ribbon that was in my stash!
I cut the word Sweets twice and placed the word on each side of the sign. A piece of Cricut cartridge packaging was cut and glued inside the windows.
Hope you enjoy my little house of love! I will place some candy in it and use it for a Valentine party decoration!
