Good morning all! I thought I would share my Provo Craft assignments for May today. My assignment was to do 3 "sylish and chic" cards using some specific Cricut cuts. And my other assignment was to do a "Family Assignment Board" using my Cricut Expression and the cartridges that come with it.
First up are the cards. This card features the umbrella from the "New Arrivals" cartridge. I made the card a bit more "chic" by using some unconventional papers and colors for the baby theme.
Supply List: Cardstock (Bazzill Basics), Paper (My Mind's Eye), Rub-ons (American Crafts), Ribbon (Offray), Rhinestones (Glitz Designs), Ink (Clearsnap), Corner Rounder (EK Success), Deco Scissors (Provo Craft), & Sandpaper (Heidi Swapp).
This card features one of the butterflies on the new "Home Accents" Cricut solutions cartridge that is now available. I LOVE this cartridge...I find myself grabbing for it all the time.
Supply List: Cardstock (Bazzill Basics), Paper (SEI), Rub-on (American Crafts), Rhinestones (Glitz Designs), Ink (Clearsnap), & Deco Scissors (Provo Craft).
This card features one of the damask images, and one of the border images that are also on the "Home Accents" Cricut solutions cartridge. I will say that with how detailed these images are, they work best on paper that isn't as thick as cardstock if you are wanting the image to be pretty small. It cut out perfectly on this Basic Grey paper...where I had to do some fixing up on the butterfly above, which was on Bazzill cardstock. (Just a pointer for you!)
Supply List: Cardstock (Bazzill Basics), Paper/Rub-on (Basic Grey), Pearl Strip (Glitz Designs), Rhinestones (Doodlebug Designs & Heidi Swapp), Ink (Clearsnap), Deco Scissors (Provo Craft), & Corner Rounder (EK Success).
And last but not least...the "Family Assignment Board". This board features the Cricut Expression, and the two cartridges that came with it, Plantin School Book and Accent Essentials. I cut the scallops out with the accents cartridge, and the rest of the letters and shapes with the Plantin font.
Supply List: Magnetic Board/Markers (from Target), Cardstock (Bazzill Basics), Paper (American Crafts), & Rhinestones (Doodlebug Designs).
I got all the cards done last night...but that board took me forever! And it is so simple and basic! But, when you aren't used to a canvas size any larger than 12x12...it took me a bit to figure out what to do with it! I think it is pretty cute...no matter how simple it is!
Did anyone watch One Tree Hill last night...or am I the last viewer of this show? It had a crazy ending...kind-of ticked me off, to be honest. BUT...it looks like they aren't going to cancel the series this season after all! They are showing the season finale next week, not the series finale. So, hopefully I get one more season of it!! They need to give me at least that after such a crappy ending last night!
