You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Welcome to my blog, Rae Ann.

It's A Spring Thing Challenge at Exploring Cricut and More

I hope everyone enjoyed this weekend.  Today we are celebrating the arrival of spring with an "It's a Spring Thing" Challenge.  Make a card, layout, or paper project that celebrates spring and contains at  least one flower.
I used the Cricut and the Freshly Picked  cartridge to design this step card.

The fencing was a leftover cut that I hadn't used from the Pagoda cartridge.  The words were modified from the Simply Charmed cartridge.  I cut out the phrases, "welcome little one" and "happy thanksgiving".  I used the welcome but contructed the word "spring" from the other phrase.

The tulip row was cut from the flower box in the Freshly Picked cartridge.  I cut it at 2 inches and sliced off most of the box.  The back row is cut from the parsley and sage designs.  They were each in pots, which were sliced off.  I used 3 sage cuts and 1 parsley cut for added greens.

I like how it turned out.  It really makes me think spring.

Please, share your spring project with us at Exploring Cricut and More' we love to see your creativity.

Take care.  Happy Creating.
Rae Ann
