This is a two page layout I did for a few challenges. Cooking With Cricut's challenge is to have at least three flowers on your project. They have a twist though, you can use either of the sketches they have, one for a two page layout and one for a card. The sketches are optional, but I decided to give the layout one a try. I've never used a sketch to create a layout before, so this was fun. I also made this using the color combo provided by Color Throwdown: pear pizzazz, kraft & blushing bride. The challenge at Crafty Creations Challenge is to include birds, polka dots and the color green on your project.
The pages are 12"x12." I used kraft cardstock for the background. The large oval that is split between the two pages is from George and Basic Shapes and is cut at 10" from a green polka dot cardstock. The pink strips are 12"x2 1/2." The birds are both from Home Decor. The one on the left page is cut at 5." I used green cardstock and cut the bird using the shadow feature. I then cut the bird normally from a pale pink polka dot paper. The bird on the right page is cut at 3 1/2" with the green cardstock and the shadow feature, then regularly with the pink polka dot paper. I cut the legs off this bird though. I used eucalyptus Stickles to fill in all the green cardstock on the bird. The flowers are from Shall We Dance. The flower on the left is cut at 3 1/2" and the bunch on the right are cut at 5 1/2." I ran the leaves of the bunch through the Cuttlebug using the Polka Dot embossing folder. The title is from Hannah Montana, cut at 2 1/2." I used cotton candy Stickles on the "girl." The picture mats are cut at 1/4" larger than the previous layer. On the left page: the top mat is for a 4"x6" picture, the bottom left mat is for a 4"x4" picture and the bottom right mat is for a 3"x5" picture. On the right page: the top mat is for a 4"x6" picture and the bottom three are for 3"x3" pictures. Everything is adhered down to the background with my ATG gun, except the birds, which are pop-dotted.
