Yes You can, This moment!

 I've been looking at some older carts and rediscovering the amazing possibilities that I've missed...
How on earth could have missed those amazing swirls????

I had no set rules on creating I just wanted to layer the heart with the filigree, once I started then I wanted to add more hearts to finish the look I wanted..

I am challenging you to add dimension to your cuts by layering...


Here's the recipe:

Supplies:
Provo Craft Cricut Expressions, Provo Craft Gypsy, Gypsy Font Cartridge, Home Accent ,Graphically Speaking Cartridge,Cuttlebug  Machine and folder Holly Ribbons,MM Pattern Papers, floss DMC,fast finish decoupage, 3in 1 beacon adhesive, Copic Markers, Mambi Rhinestones.

Let's Cut:
 Cut 11 hearts in ascending order 4 inches, 3 inches, 2.5 inches, 2 inches, 1 inch. Embossed with Cuttlebug folder Holly Ribbons, apply fast finish decoupage
Cut 2 swirls from Graphically Speaking, ink the edges with Copic Markers.

Cut 3 flowers from
Home Accent at 3.25, 2.75,2 inches, Embossed with Cuttlebug folder Holly Ribbons, apply fast finish decoupage, ink the edges with Copic Markers. Adhere the buttons with floss.
Cut Frame from Gypsy Font, Ink the edges with Copic markers.

Let's assemble:

Adhere Frame onto pattern paper, to the center right, Adhere 3 hearts and filigree to the top right corner.
Adhere Journaling Strip to the right of the frame.

Tip Use the bottom white section of the paper for your Journaling.

Adhere both swirls to the bottom of the frame and the hearts.
Adhere the flower with brads in the center to the left of the swirls.

Add title
Voila you are Done!

Great LO. I'm recooperating from CHA and the founder's sale at Jo-anns and my purchase(s)from PTI and the Gazelle lol.

Sooo I've been spending a lot of time with carts I already have and there really is some nice stuff. I have all the wedding carts just for the flourishes. And I always find something new in Graphically Speaking.

When was the founder's sale at J? mmmm maybe it's a good thing I missed it...

I love this layout! The flourishes are my all time favorite. Which is the main reason I got my Cricut. Bling always adds just the right touch. Thanks for the inspiration.
