FCCB #295 - Sequins!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge on the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge  Blog!

Challenge #295-Sequins
Make a project that has sequins!

This Weeks Sponsor
Winner will receive a $25 gift code!

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.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

For my project this week I've created a couple pocket pages with some winter photos, Simple Stories Snow Fun paper and embellishments, the Winter Frolic Cricut cartridge and of course sequins from our awesome sponsor SpiegelMom Scraps!!

A few weeks ago the Free Cut Of The Week in Cricut Design Space was the Winter Frolic cartridge. I cut a whole bunch of diecuts and put them together all at once. It was a lot of work, but now I have a whole bunch of winter diecuts that are all ready to go. I was able to grab two snowmen for the first page and pop them on easily. After figuring out where I wanted my photos and the cards from the cut apart SS paper I started adding my embellishments - some stickers from the paper pack, some washi tape and sequins and cork from the SpiegelMom Scraps collection.

I find it easiest to add sequins by placing them on my page and moving them around until I feel like they look great. Really, I don't think you can go wrong with bling ;) And, I just got a new Pick Up tool, which is awesome! so I can then pick them up one by one and put a drop of Glossy Accents underneath.

I find adding 2 or 3 embellishments in a cluster in a couple different areas always looks pleasing. 

For my second page I used the sledding diecuts and more embellishments. I even added some washi and sequins right on my photos!

This adorable heart sequin was in a valentine mix and looks great added to my journaling card. Even with a few different sequin mixes there is such a variety that you have a great selection.

I used a date stamp and a paper embellishment to add the date to my page. I find it makes it so much easier when I'm putting pages away in my scrapbooks to already have the date on it!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope things are warming up a bit wherever you are - and that you have a wonderful week.
