cuttlebug circle challenge

I will be attending a conference soon and wanted a fun folder to keep my papers organized. I used Kates ABCs and Alphalicious and Create a Critter for the cuts and lots of different cuttlebug folders to create the fun texture.

Cricut Circle challenges

I have been busy creating but just not blogging. So what have I been making???
I made window/bulletin board for my library to start the school year.

The students like my large, easy to spot bathroom pass

I made a "Cute As a Button" layout for the recipe challenge:
1) a title - Cute as a button
2) at least 2 cricut cuts - I used my gypsy to weld buttons for a border, Kate's ABC for the title, New Arrival for the circle and footprints, Mini Monograms for the scalloped circle.
3) at least 3 buttons - used real buttons for another border and one button in the center of the flower on the title.

I made page dividers for an inventory book for the exclusive Circle Cart challenge
Exclisive cart used was Cricut Everyday. There is also a little from Alphalicious for some of the letters. Each card in the photo is for a section of my inventory book (6in x 4in) so I can have the information with me when I shop. I have a list of all the cartridges and highlighted the ones I have; a sample of all the cuttlebug folders, cutouts of cuttlebug diecuts; sample of Viva pens, stickles, etc.; samples of ink pads, chalks, embossing powders, flocking material; list and samples of markers - all to be held with the paper rings. After assembling, I even added a bit of ribbon to jaz up the book.

I used a sketch to make a decorative cover for an old popcorn tin - to be used to collect paper scraps! The peacock, feather, V monogram are from Art Nouveau and the flowers from one of the preloaded e-carts on the E2.

Another layout using orange for a monochromatic color challenge. Carts used: Everyday Paper dolls, Accent Essentials, A Garden of Words.
