Cooking With Cricut Challenge: May Flowers

Happy Wednesday!  I want to start off by thanking everyone who stopped by and left such sweet comments during Cooking With Cricut's 2nd Blogaversary Celebration (click  here to check it out).  It was so much fun!  Today is our weekly Cooking With Cricut challenge.  This week the Design Team was given a May Flowers theme with the instructions to make or use flowers on our projects.

Here is what I came up with . . .


I have been working on my 8 year old daughter's baby scrapbook (I know, I know . . . about time, right!) and when I saw the challenge topic I knew immediately that these pictures were going to be perfect.  

Here's the recipe --

Cricut Cake Basics cartridge:

Circle - cut at 1 3/4" from plain white card stock and then run thru my printer.

Scalloped Circle - cut at 2 1/2" (scrap stash).

Flower - cut at 4" from DCWV Cherry Limeade Stack.

Stem & Leaves - cut at 4 1/4" tall (scrap stash); edges inked.

Text - cut at 1" high and 3/4" high from white card stock.

The 12" x 12" white card stock is by Recollections.  The solid purple is Bazzill's Wild Pansy card stock.  The floral patterned scrapbook paper is by Hot Off the Press.  The photos are matted on a dark purple card stock by Recollections.


The ribbon is 5/8" wide and is Michael's Celebrate It Basic-Basic satin ribbon.  The self-adhesive rhinestones are also by Recollections.


Now it's your turn!  Link up your "May Flowers" project at Cooking With Cricut this week -- you could be our next Top Chef!

Thanks for stopping by!  Head on over to CWC and see what my fellow Design Team members have cooked up.

Your pictures are so precious! I just love how you use the cuts and papers to add to your images, I see so many layouts nowadays where the embellishments totally overwhelm the images. You have a perfect balance! thanks for sharing your creativity with us at BBTB2!
