FCCB #250 - Celebrate Mom!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #250 - Celebrate Mom-create a card or project for Mom

This Weeks Sponsor

There will be 3 winners of $7 gift certificates!

Create a project inspired by Mother's Day

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

For my project this week I made two scrapbook layouts with pictures from Mother's Day 2013. My sweet daughter was in Kindergarten and her teacher held a Mother's Day Tea! It was a very special event!!

I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge for all the scroll cuts, which I embossed with my Cuttlebug and then added some sponged Distress Ink to. I added some Pewter Distress Stain to my page by unscrewing the cap and flicking it onto my pages.

These beautiful flowers are cut with the DigiPlayground 3D Flower SVG file. I separated the layers and made extra flowers.

For some of the flowers I stamped a script stamp with Versamark and heat embossed with black embossing powder before layering them.

The Hello tag is from DigiPlayground, and I used Design Space to change the Hello word cut to a 'write' option, using the Amy Tangerine markers from American Crafts.  They work in the Explore beautifully and are permanent, so I was able to use Distress Inks on a craft sheet to watercolour my background. I then used a white gel pen to colour in the hello part. The Mom cut was done the same way with a diecut from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.

For my second page I used the April sketch from Scrapping Everyday Miracles. I love this sweet Gorjuss Girls paper! (I used a coordinating sheet for my first layout, and more coordinating paper for the other background papers on this layout).

I love all the different options you have with this flower cut! You could layer them all together or make as many different ones as you wanted!

The What A Day cut is a 3x4 Life Card SVG file from DigiPlayground! I just love the script in this, and you get two more cards in this set!

Thanks so much for joining me today!! I hope you'll check out the FCCB blog and see what the other DT members have come up with this week - and be sure to link up your project for a chance to win!
