Cooking with Cricut Challenge 18: Swirls and Twirls: Design Team Project

This week, at Cooking with Cricut, our challenge is Swirls and Twirls.  You will need to incorporate a swirl or twirl image on your project and remember to include a cricut cut as well.  To see all of the great projects by the Design Team and enter the challenge, click here:

For my layout this week, I used Melin's great Swirly Heart Frame cut file.  Be sure to visit for this file and lots of other great files as well.  I sized it to fit the outside of the page.  Then, I used the Simply Charmed Cartridge to cut the wedding cake.  I then added some flowers and swirls of pearls to accent the page.  The background paper is a sheet from the SEI White Elegance stack.

Also, I have a quick tip for today.  Whenever I cut out a frame or border, I always keep the left over pieces that were cut to use also.  Here you can see the frame and inner section that was left after I removed the swirly heart frame.  These could both be used on other layouts.

Jean - what an awesome page!! I love the cake, so adorable and what a great idea to pass along, keeping the frame for later use. Thanks for that. Is that picture of your wedding??

Gorgeous swirls. :)

Jean said...

Yep, this is from my wedding in 2001. I just started scrapbooking it last year though. I am hoping to finish the album soon, but I stay so busy with Kaylee's stuff that I usually put it on the backburner.

Beautiful LO, Jean! And a great tip -- sometimes I forget that the negative image can be just as lovely as the image I cut out.
