Tag, I am it!

Today my layout is featured on the Platinumscraps blog. I have always been hesitant about applying to design teams because of the amount of time I would have to dedicate to it but I must say I am enjoying every minute. I feel like I am really being stretched creatively. We are going through some changes but stay tuned as there will be more tutorials, games, and giveaways. This week's sketch came from Pagemaps and you can see the full reveal here but I wanted to point out a few of my favorite elements. The two white flowers were cut using the Flower Shoppe cricut cartridge. You cam make a variety of flowers wtih this cart but I kept it simple. the green flower I made freehand and I finish all of the flowers off with a little bit of stickles for a sparkly effect.

The butterflies were cut using the Martha Stewart punch and instead of gluing them down flat, I used one mini pop dot per butterfly and pulled up the wings to give that "fly away" look. I also accented each one with some bling.

And finally after surpassing the learning curve I must say that I am in love with the Cricut Craft Room. You can use it like the Gypsy and weld your letters and customize your titles. This font came from the Quarter Note cartridge; I changed the slant of the letters, the width and welded them together to cut one beautiful title. Then I topped it off with Paper Glaze for a glossy effect.

You can see the entire layout on the Platinumscraps blog and be sure to become a follower, there is a group of talented designers there ready to inspire you!
