My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 163 Show Me Your Decor!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy Saturday everyone! It is time for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts. For Challenge 163, Sarah has chosen "Show Me Your Decor". We are asked to make some type of decor and it can be any season. No cards this time!

We are having very hot temperatures this summer in my area. My thoughts have been on Fall and all the beauty of the season plus the cooler temps. My project is a Fall banner. Recently I was the lucky random draw winner at Tuesday Morning Sketches which was sponsored by SVGAttic. It was hard to choose from so many pretty designs. I selected some Fall designs and the banner is one of those projects. Many thanks to Tuesday Morning Sketches and SVGAttic for their sponsorship for the challenges.

This is the first time that I have used any image files other than Cricut. It was simple to upload the images into the Cricut Design Space and cut it on my Cricut Explore. I sized each letter to 5.75" high and then cut each letter from the yellow and orange papers. Ribbon was in my stash. 

I enjoy decorating my patio for Fall. Last year, the old wooden shutter door was mounted on one of the walls for decorating and a table was placed in front of it. I made the burlap wreath last year - first experience of using burlap on a wreath. This Fall I will use the banner with the wreath on the door. 

Now it is your time to play along with us. Visit My Sheri Crafts to see all the decor projects made by the design team and our guest designer. For more information, please visit the individual blogs!

Beach Time

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

We are having very hot weather with more days of 100 degrees on the way! I am so thankful for my air conditioner! Inspiration for this card came from BBTB2 and its current challenge "Cool Down by the Sea". Using a search in Cricut Design Space, I chose this chair card image for my project. Papers are white Colorbok and left over pieces from other projects.

Cricut Cartridges:
Life is A Beach - Beach chair card is cut 8.50" wide, 5.9" high from the white cardstock. When folded the card measures approximately 4.25" x 6". A green patterned paper was cut for the chair. A blue sky paper was hand cut for the liner behind the opening. Image Set of 3 Sea gulls is cut 1.35" wide, 1.37" high. I used only one sea gull.
Summer Love - Beach girl is cut 2.10" wide 3.88" high.  
Paper Dolls Every Day - Water is cut 5.50" wide.
Create a Friend - Words "Beach Time" is cut 2.94" wide, 1.63" high.
Pink Journey - Sandals cut .59" wide. She has already kicked off your shoes!

Cricut Cartridges:
