Bee Mine!




I thought that I would share a project that was created by Summer from Cricut Diaries, .  She created a banner using both her Cricut Expression and Imagine. Although unless it is using cardstock, all of it can be done using the cricut Imagine.

I hope you enjoy her creation and in her own words I give you Summer's project.

Recipe:
Birthday Bash
Create-A-Critter
Hopscotch (pattern cartridge)
2 Sheets white 12x12 card stock
2 Sheets pink glitter paper (DCWV)
Brown/Pink tulle
White Gel Pen
Clear Stickles


I started my Banner by cutting the 1st layer of the banner on my E using Birthday Bash. I cut them at 4 1/2 and when I hit auto-fill I was able to get 4 banners per 12x12 sheet. My paper was a bit thick so I also used the multi-cut option.

Then on my "I" I cut the 2nd layer of the banner (same size 4.5), the letters were also from Birthday Bash (cut at 2 inches) all colors and patterns were from the pattern cartridge Hopscotch. After my banners and letters were printed and cut I switch out the cartridges and cut the bee from Create-A-Critter again with colors from Hopscotch, the bee was cut at 3.5. Since I only used a small part of the 2nd 12x12 white sheet of card stock I hit the "load last" button and was able to have the bee printed and cut on the same sheet!


Once my bee was all put together, I added some clear Stickles to the wing and used my white gel pen on both the bee and the letters.

I used my Pink ATG to adhere the 2 layers of the banner together.

The Bee was pop doted on!

Again I just used my ATG to attach the letters.


I took strips of tulle twisted together and the knotted through the holes in each banner to string them together.



Hope you enjoyed my project, My girls and I always love Valentine's Day, what can be better than tons of PINK!
