Challenge #283-Vacations

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!



Challenge #283-Vacations
Create a project that features what a vacation is to you!

This Weeks Sponsor




The prize is 7 digital stamps!

And we are giving away a $25 Amazon gift certificate, courtesy of FCCB Design Team!  

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.

Here is my project-


And here is a list of materials I used:
  1. Cricut cuts: Route 66 sign, cruisin' car (Nifty Fifties cartridge). Font: Fontdiner Swanky (internet), cut with the Explore.
  2. Paper: gold (Colorbok), white, black, blue, grey, red cardstock (scrap stash).
  3. Image: Nevada Betty (Simply B), colored with Copics. 
Sometimes black and metallics are the hardest colors to photograph! I'm a very simple scrapbooker-I want the pictures to be the story, and my Cricut cuts to help tell it. This is the Hot Rod scrapbook, and anything that pertains to our cars is in it. We have a small collection of Chevelles, along with a 1927 Tudor Rat Rod.

Thank you for visiting!

Aloha!

This month at Die Cut Diva's we would like you to share with us your summer vacation, via cards ( or the papercraft of your choice), or maybe make a card sharing your dream vacation! Just remember you must always use at least 1 die cut or embossing folder, and most of all have fun!

Here is my project-



I made a shaker card with Hawaii Betty! Here are the steps & materials I used:
  1. I used a My Favorite Things Oval Die to cut into the background designer paper by Ella & Viv. I used my Copics to color in a beach & sky, and used Elmers foam lines for the shaker oval. I happened to have gold sequin stars in my stash, and figured they could be starfish or heavenly stars!
  2. I colored the Hawaii Betty with my Copics, and highlighted her hair with a gelly glitter pen.
  3. The sentiment was cut with my Cricut using the Life is a Beach cartridge, and scraps from my stash.
One of these days, I will go to Hawaii. It's a dream vacation for me.

Thanks for visiting!
I'm also entering this at the Cut it Up Summertime Memories Challenge.

Die Cut Diva's and Vacations!

I hope everyone is enjoying a lovely summer and either having a wonderful vacation, or enjoying the summer festivities of your own home town.

Here is my project-

 I used Nevada Betty (colored with Copics) from Simply B for my scrapbook. We are in Reno for Hot August Nights with our 1966 Chevelle 4 door Hardtop, so I got the pages ready for pictures. Here is the entire layout- 


I used my Cricut and the Nifty Fifties cartridge to cut out the Cruisin' and Route 66 images (don't you just love noticing something is uneven AFTER you've photographed it? *sigh*) out of scrap cardstock. The font was downloaded from the internet and is called Fontdiner Swanky. The nice thing about Cricut Design Space is that you can cut any font you have on your computer! I used Colorbox gold mirror cardstock for the lettering. 

Thanks for visiting!
