FCCB #299 - Spring!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #299-Spring
Make a project about Spring.

The FCCB Design Team is sponsoring a $25 gift card at


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 I've created a scrapbook layout using a heart background cutout from the Close To My Heart Artistry Cricut cartridge. There are so many wonderful backgrounds on this cartridge, and you could size them to create cards or layouts! I've had these wonderful photos of my daughter, Amie, for a few years and I figured this was the perfect time to scrapbook them! After all, what says spring more than butterflies and fairies! I based my layout on the February 2016 Sketchy challenge at the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. If you're ever looking for a starting point there are lots of great sketches and inspiration here!

I used my Distress Oxide Inks to sponge over my heart diecut in colours that matched the pretty BoBunny Butterfly Kisses paper. The cutouts in the diecut were lovely with images from the paper showing through. I added some CTMH stamps in different places and layered on some Tim Holtz chit chat stickers.

I love this gorgeous title from a Pink Paislee Take Me Away phrases foam sticker pack. I layered it over a Pink Paislee journaling card and added some SpiegelMom Scraps sequins and some CTMH bling.

I made a second page with the adorable photos I had from this photo shoot, so I thought I'd share this with you as well! I used a background page from the BoBunny Butterfly Kisses again and layered on lots of fun elements.

I love fussy cutting out images that are on papers and adding them to my layouts. These pretty Pink Paislee branch stickers looked awesome sticking out of the pretty mason jar. And, of course, I love adding SpiegelMom Scraps sequins! How sweet are these yellow flower sequins?!!

This lovely chipboard sticker is from the BoBunny Believe collection - I love the way it coordinates!

I added a Pink Paislee Take Me Away foam sticker title 'Lovely' and used some Stickles to add a bit of bling. Some Distress Oxide Inks add colour to a chipboard tag and a pretty purple ribbon coordinates with the inks and sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful week!! Don't forget to stop by the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to see what all the other Design Team members have come up with - and enter your own Spring project using a Cricut cut for a chance to win!
