Cricut Circle June Magazine Challenge


Teresa Collins is one of our favorites in our little Circle! We have featured her paper collections and Imagine Cartridge all through this month’s issue. It’s only fitting to use her designs in our contest this month! We invite you to create a project, layout, card or gift item using any of her paper collections, Imagine cartridge or Blingage. We would like it to have a celebration theme. Maybe an elegant birthday, anniversary or wedding.

Contest Rules: Use at least 4 Cricut Cuts from any cartridge in your design and at least 3 Teresa Collins products like her paper collections, Imagine cartridge, Blingage, albums or any other product she produces in your design. Contest will open on June 18th. Please upload a working link or picture of your project to the blog under the Magazine Challenge tab. . Please, one entry per person. Entry deadline is Friday, July 15th. The winner of this contest will receive a Damask Décor Cartridge and Cuttlebug folder set!"

For my project I used paper and die cuts from Teresa Collin's Timeless collection and the Gentry's Glitter.  What beautiful paper!

My in-laws will be celebrating 50 years of marriage this coming November.  I created a layout to celebrate their 50th anniversary.  The upper photo mat is for a snapshot from their wedding day.  The bottom photo mat is for a snapshot we'll take at the party.

Cricut cartridges used:  Calligraphy Collection for phrase "Happy Anniversary" and "50"; Storybook for the flourishes.

Paper:  Teresa Collins Timeless Labels, TS2003; Timeless Time Clocks, TS2004; Timeless Die Cuts, TS2010.  Mats and Cricut cuts were cut from paper that I had in my stash.

I used the glitter on the "50" and absolutely loved the effect.  Added additional bling with brads from my stash.
