My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 173 Feelin' Fussy

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today begins a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts! For this challenge, our design team sister Sarah has chosen "Feeling Fussy"...she asked that we include some fussy cutting in our project. Well, I believe this is a first for me. I enjoy using my Cricut cutting machine and images, so I had to think hard on this one!

I am trying to work on Valentine cards for my family. Since I have a lot of K&Company scrap papers from many previous projects, I chose to hand cut out some of the pretty images from several papers and combined them for this card. Card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". You will notice a row of hearts that I left together and then added the extra heart on the left. The two flowers and the word LOVE finishes the front. Maybe I was not "fussing" too much, but I knew the Cricut machine would have cut images much faster than me! 

Thanks Sarah for the fun challenge! It is always good to try something different in paper crafting!

Please visit My Sheri Crafts to see all the pretty projects by the design team and our guest designer! For more information about the projects, please visit the individual blogs! Now it is your turn to play along with us! We look forward to seeing your pretty projects!

Owl always Love you Valentine

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

With Valentine's Day fast approaching, I decided to start working on my cards! I thought this cute little owl would be perfect for my daughter! Card 5" x 6 1/2" white cardstock. Patterned papers are K&Company- these are left over scrap papers from previous projects. 

Cricut Cartridges:
Create A Critter 2 - Owl is cut 2.75" high.
Hoot N Holler - Sentiment- "Owl always Love you" is cut 3.25" wide. Although I am now using a subscription to Cricut Design Space, this is my first time to cut the sentiment and the cute owl.
Valentine's Day - Heart is cut 1.5" wide.

Cricut Mittens

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
I enjoy playing along with Cricut challenges because it gives the opportunity to use Cricut images that I may would never use. The card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" cut from white Colorbok cardstock.
Patterned paper is Recollections Jolly Holiday that I have had in my stash for quite some time.

Cricut Cartridges:
Classroom December -January -  Mitten Border is cut 4" wide. Let it Snow/Snowflake is cut 3.06" wide. It is pop-dotted on the card. This is my first time to use images from this cartridge.
Elegant Cakes - Best Wishes is cut 3.39" wide. This sentiment is used inside the card.

Memory Thread bow and Recollection gemstones are used on the card. I cannot remember how long ago that I purchased the gemstones. I really need to start using more embellishments from my stash!
