Spring Fling Cricut Crawl

It's Spring Time, even though some places may not look like it :) and everyone at Fantabulous Cricut has decided to have a Spring Fling!   Each Design Team member will be featuring an original Spring project that includes Pink, Green and Yellow on it along with at least one Cricut cut.

If you've come from visiting Tamara at Happy Life Crafty Wife, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE.

Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at some of our DT members' blogs, AND there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Spring Fling" project at FCCB!

How fun is that?

Now...on to my project.....Signs of Spring...


(click photo to enlarge)
I love, love, love spring time and I wanted to make something special to display in my home
that celebrates this wonderful time of year.  I started this project with one ideal in my head and it
evolved into something totally different, but I must say...I really love the end result.
I started with a 10 X 20 artist canvas that I painted a soft creamy, yellow.

Most of the paper I used is from the "Sweet Pea" paper stack by Paper Studio.
I also used lots of Zip Dry glue and tape!
The edges of all the mats and cuts are inked with Ranger's "Vintage Photo" ink.

*The green background mats are cut at 4 1/2 X 3 3/4 inches.
The printed mats are cut at 4 1/4 X 3 1/2 inches.


This photo is of the first two panels...

* The first panel is the Spring banner from "April Showers".  It is cut at 1 1/4 inches and I
pop-dotted the layers together, added some bling and a few buttons.
* Panel #2 is the rose bush from "Freshly Picked".  This was cut twice at 3 1/2" and pop-dotted for a bit of dimension.  I used the Sizzix folder "Burlap" to emboss the bag and tied it up with a bit of twine.  A few gems in the center of each rose adds a bit of bling.  The corners are made with a Martha Stewart punch and gems.

The next two panels...

* Panel #3 is the kite from "Nate's ABC's".  The kite is cut at 3 1/4" and again, pop-dotted.
I used a Nestabilities to cut out the cloud shape and ran it through my Cuttlebug using the "Swirls" folder.
I added a few gems to the bows on the kite and some brads in 2 corners of the mat.
* Panel #4 is also from Nate's ABC's.  This cute little scene is cut at 2 1/2 inches and pop-dotted.
I added some crinkle ribbon and a bow to finish this panel.

Next...

* Panel #5 is the beautiful butterfly from "Sentimentals".  I cut this at 2 1/4 inches, pop-dotted the layers and added pearls.  I also added Stickles to the wings.  The trim on each edge of this mat was created using a Martha Stewart punch.

Panels 6 & 7...

* Panel 6 is the watering can from "April Showers".  I cut this out twice at 2 inches and used pop-dots to lift up the top layer.  I added little flowers from a MS punch with a gem in each center.  Crinkle ribbon and a button finish off this panel.
* Panel 7 is from "Nate's ABC's"...I love this cartridge!  This was cut at 2 3/4 inches with the layers pop-dotted.  The green leaves along the side are from a MS punch and I added a few pearls to the opposite side.

Panel 8...(the most important panel)


* Panel # 8 is the most simple, yet most important panel in this project.  This cut is from "Inspired Heart".
I cut the figure of Christ at 4 inches.  The blue mat is cut twice and the layers are put together with pop-dots.
A bit of crinkle ribbon is the only decoration on this panel.

And finally...panels 9 and 10...


* Panel #9 is the birdhouse from "April Showers" cut at 2 3/4 inches.  I added the layered flower (also from this cartridge) ....again the layers are pop-dotted.  The borders at the top and bottom of the mat are from a MS punch with a gem in each corner.
* Panel #10 is from "Celebrate With Flourish".  The basket was cut twice at 3 1/4 inches and pop-dotted together.  I added a bow to the handle.  The grass is from a MS punch.  A button in the top corners is the finishing touch.
And...again....the whole project....

I truly enjoyed working on this project and I know it is something I will enjoy displaying each spring for many years to come.  Thank you for giving me the chance to share my love of paper-crafting with you!  I always enjoy your visits and the sweet, encouraging comments you leave!  And now...I have something else to share with you....


To help celebrate SPRING, I will be giving away this great cartridge, "Freshly Picked".
There are only 2 rules..
1. You must leave a comment on this post
2. You must be a follower

I will have a drawing and announce the winner on Monday, April 18th!
When you comment, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you!

Well...I am the last stop on our
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Cricut Crawl.
I hope you have enjoyed your time with us.  Now...it's time for you to get busy.
Go and get creative, then link up your project at FCCB.
I can't wait to see what you create!

Until next time,

  46. Beautiful touches all areas of spring including panel 8, my favorite. Did you use Zip glue to adhere the paper to the canvas. I just did a canvas project and the paper warped. I was thinking of trying spray adhesives.
