Fantabulous Cricut Challenge 42: Winter Warmies: Design Team Project

This week, the challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut is Winter Warmies.  We were asked to create a project using our Cricut that incorporates some winter clothing: scarf, hat, mittens, etc.  Be sure to stop by FCCB and enter your own project into this week's challenge here:

For my project, I made a layout using the 3 Birds on Parade cartridge for the bird and the title.  I used the Storybook Cartridge to cut the frames and the pictures.  I also used a glitter gel pen and a white opaque pen to add some details.

To make the pictures be cut with the frame shape, I started out by using my Gyspy to size the frame and picture how I wanted them to be on the page. I then cut out the frame in the picture size using some scrap paper.  Once I had the cut made, I placed my picture under the cut on the matt where the frame was and then recut the same thing so it would cut my pictures in the shape I wanted.

What a cute layout. I love idea of cutting the pictures to match the frame!! I am going to try that. I love the little bird!

Great layout, Jean! Thanks for the cutting tips. That would be much easier than using the center point fuunction. I always am a little off when I use that.

Happy Crafting!

Pic to frame is awesome. Love how you did this. And the photos below in the snow is so awesome. Can't wait to go play up in the mountains soon. We hardly ever get snow, so I am being forced to go to it!!! Stay warm and have fun crafting.
