5th Cricut Anniversary Challenge

There is a contest to help celebrate the 5th anniversary of Cricut and the launch of the new E2 machine. I play with some ideas and here are my humble entries.

1st Layout

For this LO I used Cricut Cartridge Celebrations for the birthday hat & the cupcake , Cricut Cartridge MS All Ocassion for the scallop border. The lettering is from Cricut Cartridge Don Juan. I stamped a phrase that read "Eat cake for today you are one year older" around the main page. And stamped the word "happy" inside the B.

2nd Layout

I cut three different ballons from Cricut Cartridge Celebrations. I cut the phrases "It's your day", "Happy Bday" & "Make a Wish" using the Cuttlebug cut & emboss folder Birthday Wishes. The stars were cut using that folder as well. I cut the birthday cake & strings using the Disney Cuttlebug cut & emboss folder Take the cake. I used stickles & a gel pen to added glitter & shine to some accents.

3rd Layout

I cut the two circles from Cricut Cartridge Plantin Schoolbook. The tags and lettering are from Cricut Cartridge Once Upon a Princess. The stamp cut is from Cricut Cartridge Base Camp. I cut & emboss the two gifts using the Cuttlebug folder Beautifully Boxed. I ink both tags and used a white gel pen on the letters & stickles to add some glitter at the gift box.

  1. These layouts are great! I meant to enter this contest, but just never got anything together. The white gel pen really makes the letters pop! Thanks for linking up at Binge Crafter. Hope to see some more of your projects later in the week!
