Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all have had a wonderful week. Very busy around here. Started the week with celebrating Sara's 16th birthday, trying to finish up school and Sara's drama performances are all weekend! I will be glad when it's all completed! So fun and yet a bit tiring too.
Today is my day to post a project at Exploring Cricut. I just love this blog as it is devoted to all things Cricut. I love to see the images the design team used in their projects. I often find inspiration to try a new image or maybe pull out a cartridge I haven't used in awhile. Please do take a moment to visit!
For today's project I am sharing some party decor from Sara's birthday celebration. I used my Imagine Yummy Cartridge for these goodies.
I will start with the favors as they are my favorite! I started by printing several images from the Yummy cartridge using the layer feature. I inked the edges, added foam tape, stickles and/or little pearls.Finally I ran the images through various Cuttlebug folders. I inked the edges of the paper doilies added the image on top with more foam tape, added some wrapped candy bars, finished with some pink sheer ribbon. They looked so darling.
Next up: decorated paper straws. I used a stock image from the Imagine using a patterned paper from the Yummy cartridge, inked the edges and ran them through the cupcake Cuttlebug folder. I added a scalloped circle and stamped the "16" from an Amy Tangerine stamp set. I added the little cupcakes I made from the Yummy cartridge cut at 1" using the layer and auto fill feature.
using the layer and fit to page features.
The banner was cut using images from the Yummy cartridge cut at 4". I used the auto fill feature and was able to get 4 to 6 per page. I also added some images cut at 3" using the layer feature. I added foam tape, stickles and inked the edges as well. I ran them through the polka dot Cuttlebug folder.
