ETA: This project was not a winner but did get a mention which is still exciting!
This week is the template challenge on the JUGS blog. I was really looking forward to this challenge because I knew it would give me a reason to finally put to use the new All A Flutter template I bought from Lauren Meaders New Store My Time Made Easy . It was also the first time I cut one of her templates with my Cricut. I was a little lost about how to do it at first but my daughter Emilia is a computer wiz so she was able to show me how it is done. I have to say it was so much easier to cut the templates this way and I am really glad that I bought the Cricut now. This is what I came up with.
I started by resizing the template to half the size that it comes in using SCAL. After that I cut out the pieces using PTI Dark Chocolate, Melon Berry, Berry Sorbet and Vintage Cream Cardtock. Next I stamped the Melon Berry and Berry Sorbet pieces with images from the PTI Background Diamonds and Retro Backgrounds set using Dark Chocolate ink. Next I ran the base of the butterfly through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder then attached the stamped pieces. When I was done with that I attached the body that I also embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder, then I cut a spiral clip in half and attached it to the back of the head with mini glue dots. To finish the butterfly off I added some clear rhinestones. I filled the box with a bag of Hershey Kisses and tied it with some Melon Berry Ribbon to match. That's it. I hope you like it. I would love to win the prize this week which is a gift certificate to Laurens new store. She has a new release coming up on Monday and I know I could put it to good use. That's it for now. I hope you have a great night and I will be back soon with more things to share.
