The challenge this week at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is all about trees.
Within a few minutes of learning the theme, the laundry scene above came to mind.
I have had so much fun on this challenge (I enjoy scrapping laundry much more than doing laundry)!
For the trees, I used my "Stretch Your Imagination" Cricut cartridge. I cut out each tree twice at 7 1/2 inches and used pop-dots to layer them together. The tree tops went through my Cuttlebug in the "Preserves" folder. I used "Distressed Stripes" on the tree trunks. Each piece was inked up with Ranger Ink.
I cut 2 long strips of green-striped paper and used a Martha Stewart punch to create the grass.
The yellow flowers are from the "Country Life" cartridge. These were cut at a tiny 1 1/2 inch and inked up.
The laundry on the line was so much fun to make! I love the way this turned out! This cut is also from "Country Life" at 3 inches. This cut includes a clothes line that I cut away and replaced with this adorable Baker's Twine. Then, using my white gel pen, some ink and some gems, I gave this laundry some style!
The laundry basket is actually what looks like an Easter basket from the "My Community" cartridge.
I cut the basket out twice, cut away the handles, layered them together and inked away. I think it makes a great little laundry basket! The towel is from yet another cartridge..."Everyday Paper Dolls".
The clouds are from the "April Showers" seasonal cartridge and are cut at 1 1/2 inches and 2 inches.
I used the "Swiss Dots" cuttlebug folder and inked them with Ranger's "Stormy Sky" ink.
I found this frame at Hobby Lobby and thought it would be perfect for my project!
It is 9 X 11 inches which is just perfect for using scrapping paper.
I hope you have enjoyed my little wash-day scene!
If you have any questions on this or any other project, just leave me a comment.
Now, it's your turn...hop over to FCCB and check out the challenge, then get busy! I'll be checking in to see your creations!
And now...since it really is Monday....sigh...guess what I have to go do.....
Until next time,
(with the wash-day blues)
