Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #5 - April Showers

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

Time for more fun over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. This week's challenge is called "April Showers". You are to design a project using "Rain or Water". Examples are a hat, umbrella, life preserver, etc.

My project this week is a Paper Bag Album for my friend Tannya's baby shower. Someone is finally having a boy!  I incorporated blue and orange colors for this album since it matches the colors of the nursery.

I'm a scrapbook paper fanatic and found this beautiful paper by Autumn Leaves. It's called Wellies Glitter Rainy Girl paper. It is designed with a background color called Robin's Egg Blue. It also features the silhouette of a girl, in a puddle, holding up an umbrella.

I cut out an additional orange colored umbrella and the text "It's a Baby Shower" using the "New Arrival" Cricut Cartridge. 

Working with paper bags is fun!  I always sew my paper bags together for more durability. I also punch 5 holes on the sides to tie ribbon or fibers. Once made, paper bag albums are sturdy enough to stand up and display on a shelf, desk, or bookcase. 


Click on over to Fantabulous Cricut and enter your project today. Can't wait to see the creations you all come up with for this week's challenge. You also have the chance to win a wonderful prize from Kiki-Art.

Someone sent me a RAK paperbag album once and I just look at it over and over again because it is so beautiful. I think I'm going to have to go find a tutorial for this because it's gorgeous and such a terrific gift!
