Day 17: Being This Cute Layout

Hi everyone!!

This is my actual project for Day 17 (today) so I am officially caught up on my Cricut Project 365.

My project for today was actually inspired by my own color combo challenge! I host a weekly color challenge over on my regular blog:

Now I ended up spending WAY too much time on this layout, but I had a lot of fun with it. I really try to keep my projects simple. Sometimes, though, you just have to go fancy! LOL

And you will never believe what Cricut cartridge I used for this layout. . . Can you guess?

The butterfly and flower shape were made from the Cricut Give a Hoot cartridge! And yes, that is ME as a baby :O)  I sure was adorable, if I do say so myself! LOL

Layout details:

  • The butterfly was cut from the Give a Hoot cartridge at 2.25inches tall. The two layers were attached only at the center so that I could fold the wings up. For the body, I added some adhesive rhinestones from Stampin’ UP.
  • The butterfly’s tail and the big bow across the page were made with satin ribbon (from Micheal’s craft store) I attached the ribbon with ATG adhesive, which seems to hold ribbon really well!
  • The flower was actually not supposed to be a flower at all! On the Give a Hoot cartridge, this shape is a shadow for the sun shape! I just loved the shape so I ended up cutting it out 5 times in the following sizes: 3, 2.5, 2, 1.5, and 1 inch. I curled up all the edges and attached them all together with a button and linen thread (from Stampin’ UP)
  • All of the paper used is from Stampin’ UP (the round die cut paper is from the Nursery Suite pack, the polka dot paper is from the Candy Lane pack which is retired). Cardstocks used were: Pretty in Pink and textured Crumb Cake.
  • The journaling shape was made using a stamp from the SP and Company Lovely Labels stamp set.
  • The alphabets are from American Crafts (the pink letters are foam glitter Thickers) and Echo Park Paper (the smaller letters are from the Be Mine collection).

So I will be back tomorrow with my project for Day 18!

  1. I just love the layouts with you little. I am going to make each of my daughters a book with some of my favorite pics and your ideals are so inspiring.

  2. I like how you mixed typography styles, but didn’t take it over the top. You have the big, glittered letters, and then the typewriter letters. Love your choices 🙂
