My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 92 Back to School

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Where did summer go? Time for school days already!
Challenge 92 theme this week at My Sheri Crafts is "Back to School"! Our talented design team sister Raquel asked us to create any project related to a school theme.

Cricut Cartridges:
Wrap It Up - This cartridge has great creative features including a card, box, and tag. I used the card and box features.
Page 27 - Card feature is cut 6 .50". The card feature on shift does not include layering so I used the main school images and layer features to achieve my look.
Page 27- Box is cut at 11". Working in the Cricut Craft Room, I also used the main keys and layering keys to finish the box. It is a cute little treat box or maybe container for small school supplies such as paper clips or colors.
The phrase on  the school house page is School's Out so that would not work!
3 Birds on Parade
Page 60 - Phrase "School days". I did not record the size.

Other supplies include pop dots for the phrase, inking, and white Gelly roll pen.

BBTB2 - Elephantly Speaking

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Hope you had a great weekend! Are you ready for another fun Cricut challenge at BBTB2! Our talented design team sister Shelly chose Elephantly Speaking- use an elephant from any cartridge on your card, layout or project.
My card measures 5" x 6 1/2" white cardstock. The birthday paper is The Paper Studio Birthday Extravaganza Paper pad. All the papers were in my scrap stack.
Cricut cartridge:
Celebrate With Flourish - I really like the cuts on this cartridge! The elephant is wearing a cute party hat and I thought the cut would be good for a birthday card.  Elephant is cut 3.5".
Of course, I needed a balloon! The balloon is cut at 2.5" and is wrapped under the tail of the elephant.
Other supplies:
3 Girl Jam ribbon,  pop-dots on the elephant and balloon, and a little wiggle eye.

Be sure to visit BBTB2 and check out all the cute and inspiring elephant projects by the design team. For more information on the projects, visit the individual blogs. We appreciate your visits and comments!
Now it is your turn to play along with us! Remember this is a Cricut challenge and you must use an elephant cut on your project. Please mention in your blogpost which cartridge was used.

Just a reminder, you still have a week to play along with our "Fly Away" challlenge. You must use a hot air balloon or an airplane if you do not have a hot air balloon cut.
