Adventure Family Time - H2H Challenges

Hello and Happy Monday to you all! Today I have new challenge for you from H2H Challenges. This week the theme challenge is "Cutting it Close" so for this challenge you need to cut something out either with a Cricut, a Thin Cut, or the good ole fashioned Fussy Cutting! 

For this challenge I am using one of the layouts I did for my upcoming Spruced Up workshop as it is full of Cricut cuts. Now in all fairness I did not design the left page, that is from the CTMH Complete Creativity Cricut Cartridge but I did add the second page on as it is a one page layout in the cartridge. 





I had a lot of fun creating this layout, but it is a lot of intricate Cricut cuts, but that is what I love about it, it is so detailed.

Products Used:

Paper:
- Spruced Up
- White Daisy, Glacier, Espresso, Fern, Evergreen, Toffee, and Sangria card stock

Embellishments:
- Clear Sparkles
- Bitty Sparkles

Cricut:
- Complete Creativity

Free Cake - AHSC 350

Hello! Things are returning back to normal around my house and creating again now that the kids are back in school. I have a project from the AHSC. One of the great things about sketches is that they are a road map to get you started. For this one I did change things a bit, I tried to put the cake in the place of the flower as in the sketch but it just never felt and looked right to me so I slid it over a bit and it worked much better for me.

Paper:
- Holly Jolly 
- Black and White Daisy card stock

Embellishments:
- Black Shimmer Trim
- Silver Shimmer Trim
- Black and White Dots

Stamp:
- Free Cake (retired)

Ink:

- Copic - E23

I made this card using the AHSC #349 but to get it to work the way I wanted I had to flip the sketch on its side, that is the great thing with sketches is that they are a jumping point to get you going but you are able to move things around and make it work for your card or layouts. 

Here is what I created:
