Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #2 - Easter Excitement

Monday, March 22, 2010

Time for a new week and new fun-filled challenge. If you are a Cricut FANATIC then join us over at the FANTABULOUS CRICUT CHALLENGE BLOG.

P.S. - Friends have also urged me to submit this to some challenge blogs looking for a Spring theme. I've also submitted this to the All Sorts Challenge Blog  and the Paper Play Challenge.
Also, be sure to click on over and take a look at the other Fantabulous DT members' creations. Their creative work will inspire you to make something for our second challenge. This week's challenge calls for you to make a design with your Cricut using:

♥ Create an Easter project using pastel colors.

My project for this theme is pictured here. I call it - "Springtime Lollipop Bouquet"

I used the following cartridges on this project:
♥ Straight from the Nest
♥ Songbird
♥ Storybook

I first started out with a simple cardboard box. Use whatever size you'd like.

I then covered it in scrapbook paper on all sides. Afterwards, I covered the paper with various embellishments to match the theme. I cut out the birds on the front of the box using the "Straight from the Nest" cartridge.  I cut out the bird with the signpost using the "Songbird" cartridge. To make the signpost stand up better I cut out the same exact shape and glued it to my paper for better stability.

For the lettering I used the "Storybook" cartridge and cut out cute words to go along with the theme. To add some fun to the bird's tail I used a flower embellishment and put some bling in the middle.

In the middle of the box is a styrofoam cube that I purchased at Michael's craft store. You need the styrofoam to make the lollipops stand up straight in the box. I also purchased the Easter themed lollipops and the pink grass from Walmart.

Once this design is put together it can be used as an alternative to an Easter basket or for a Springtime centerpiece.

So get those creative juices flowing and take part in the FANTABULOUS CRICUT CHALLENGE this week.
Have a great week of creating!
