It's challenge day at Cooking With Cricut! Melin decided we should have an "Anything Goes" week -- designer's choice of their favorite old project or a new one. I am in the middle of creating all the decorations and such for my little sister's baby shower this weekend, so I thought I would share with you one of my new faves. Elizabeth and her husband Matt are eagerly anticipating the birth of their first child -- a boy -- in early December. And they decided to decorate his nursery in a zoo theme and have selected a bedding called "Modern Zoo."
I created a door sign -- it will be used at the shower location and then later can hang on my nephew's bedroom door. I love making these! It measures 12" x 12" and will fit perfectly into an album frame or a clear scrapbook layout frame.
The turquoise base is 12" x 12" card stock from Recollections. The next layer is a lime green gingham by The Paper Studio that measures 11 1/2" x 11 1/2". The white layer is 11" x 11" and is also from Recollections. All of the other papers are either Recollections or Bazzill. Here's the recipe:
Cindy Loo -- "Welcome" cut a 10" w.
Mickey Font -- "to Everett's" cut at 1" h.
- Redbird, cut at 1 1/4" h.
- Penguin, cut at 3 1/2" h.
- Giraffe, cut at 7 1/2" h.
- Zebra, cut at 3 3/4" h.
- Alligator, cut at 1 3/4" h.
Everyday Paper Dolls --
- Elephant, cut at 6"h.
- Lion, cut at 3 1/2" h.
- Zoo sign, cut at 7 1/4" h.
- Zookeeper, cut at 4"h.
You will notice there is NO bling on this project -- no cute ribbon or flowers. It was hard not to "girly" it up! I did chalk some edges and added a few pen details.
I must confess . . . this has got to be one of my all-time favorite things I have ever created!
You know how sometimes you envision something and it doesn't turn out like you expected? Well this one turned out WAY BETTER than I ever imagined it would!!
My sister is going to love it!
