Its challenge day again over at Creative Craft Challenge and this weeks theme is
Anything but a card
My anything (but a card!) is a plaque to go on my baby grandson Jacobs' bedroom door
His bedroom is decorated in the same jungle theme with the shapes all cut on the Cricut Expression. This plaque is made of card but the ones we made for the bedroom were cut in vinyl and look lovely and colourful. I still don't have a photo of the finished walls but heres a peak of part of it at the end of our first session - it took about 4 afternoons to finish it (especially as Jacob put in an early appearance and was there to supervise the last two!!)
The finished room has a lion, tiger, rhino, zebra more swinging monkeys, flowers and all sorts! Its very colourful and looks great. The walls are a pale green and the room has all sorts of jungle themed soft furnishings that came from Verbaudet.
This is what I did ....
I used mainly the Zoo Baloo, Stretch the Imagination and Paper Dolls for Everyday cartridges
The card is Bazzill - it has such lovely textures that I think you can partly see in the photo.
The little flowers are from Wild Orchid - sweetheart flowers
That is basically it - very simple really. The only other thing I'd add is that for making a project like this, where there is a lot of measuring up to fit all the elements into a small space, I find the Cricut Gypsy invaluable, you can just layer everything up on your screen and see that its going to work before you start to cut it out - and you can do it all sitting on the sofa watching TV at the same time, not standing over a cutting machine or on a computer - very easy.
Lets see you all over at Creative Craft Challenge with your anything! (but a card). The DT girls have come up with some very creative ideas that might just inspire you - hope to see you there x
