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.

A Grad Tag With Fabric

Hi!  As my title suggests, I'll be entering several challenges today.
I cut the tag at 3" (double thickness) from the Cricut Picturesque cartridge.  The grad cap came from the Cricut Create a Friend cartridge (I set the cap and gown at 4" and was able to stop the cut because the cap was cut first).  The yellow stars were cut at 1/2" from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge.  I just rolled a piece of paper and made the scroll.  I hand-made the rosette.

You can't see it here but I fringed the top and bottom of the blue fabric with the big star on it.  The challenge at Shopping Our Stash is to include fabric and I've had this piece around for ages.

The challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 is Graduation.  The challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas is tags.
I started with the fabric and designed the rest so I could enter all three.

A happy side comment--I won the Cricut Air machine prize in the Fantabulous Cricut #300 Blog Hop.  I am thrilled!!!

Be sure to visit each of these blogs to see what everyone has done.  It takes a lot of work and coordinating to keep these challenges going and they need to be appreciated.

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Creating!
Rae Ann
