For todays projects, I was to pick 3 different Cricut cartridges to use and my choices were
Sugar and Spice (Cricut Lite), Four Legged Friends and Paper Lace.
Let's start first with Paper Lace.

I made a gift card for my niece's bridal shower using Paper Lace. Her wedding color is blue ...and the blue she has for the bridesmaids is cobalt. I used the most dark blue color I had
on hand, which when making it the night before you are going out of town for the shower doesn't allow much time
for running out to buy the correct color!
(Hummmmm, another reason I NEED an Imagine??)

I cut the Congrats Paper Lace out of Black paper and layered it on a white background. Really makes it stand out!
Very simple but I still think it was a pretty gift enclosure card!

My second project was made using Sugar and Spice Cricut Lite. It will be a card for my Granddaughter Alaina, who we call Lainey. She will turn two in March! Boy does the time fly by!!
Lainey is a cute little blonde and wears pig tails frequently so when I saw this little girl image I thought it would be perfect! I used Sheer Shimmer Spritz in "sparkle" on the little girls collar (purchased the Spritz from Erica's shop if you "need" some for yourself! I did a lot of foam dots to pop her up from the base, and embossed the base paper with my Cuttlebug. I used rubber stamps to make a gift and Happy Birthday balloon.
The frame around the base of the card was cut from
Elegant Edges.
I added purple ribbon to each pig tail for an added touch!
I hope she will like her little card!

For my third and final project on today's hop, I made a card featuring
Four Legged Friends and used Paper Lace on it as well!
I started my making the bottom base out of black then layering it with a cut from Elegant Edges out of a really cool green shimmer paper.
I cut the cat from
Four Legged Friends, using not only all the layers they provide on the cartridge, but because I
was attempting to make it look similiar to my cat Oliver, I went a step further and layered more colors on the tail to give it stripes. Although Ollie is a half white, half grey tiger cat, the cut didn't give me much freedom for trying to make more stripes on the majority of the body. I did what I could!
This shot seems to show the green shimmer paper better.
I used Paper Lace to cut the band of ovals that I balanced the kitty on top of.
I hope you can see a bit of the shimmer in both the green paper and the silver paper is metalic with a shine to it as well..
I cut the word "meow" with the ball of yarn and layered the silver on top of black, also from the Four Legged Friends cartridge.
For the eyes, I used the I -Rock and attached the green gems which really sparkle in person!
Here is a picture of Oliver in person. He doesn't like his picture taken, but you can see has a lot of white fur and then the tiger stripes!

I hope you have enjoyed my 3 projects!
