4th of July Fantabulous Cricut Crawl

Welcome to Just A Nutter Paper Crafter and the 4th of July Fantabulous Cricut Crawl - Fantabulous Cricut's version of a Blog Hop!!
In honor of the 4th of July holiday, we're having a Red, White and Blue Crawl.  Each Design Team member has created a fabulous project using Red, White and Blue as the main colors, and of course at least one Cricut cut!
If you've come from Lynn at http://mycardsnstuff.blogspot.com, you're in the right place!  If you've just happened across my blog and would like to see all the fabulous Design Team creations head on over to Fantabulous Cricut HERE to start at the beginning.
Make sure to check out each DT member's blog!  There will be Blog Candy along the way at some of our DT members' blogs, and there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant who submits a "Red White and Blue" project at FCCB! I am also giving away blog candy (Basic Grey tag mini book & an Imaginese cupcake Stamp) to one lucky commenter who joins as a follower!


  This is my project..... 

Here is what I used:
  1. Chalkboard Font Cartridge (HOME cut at 2", (of the) cut at 1")
  2. Storybook Cartridge (Free cut at 2")
  3. Cheerful Seasons (Because cut at 1 1/4")
  4. Brave (Blackletter cut at 2")
  5. Summer Celebrations (Soldier cut at 5 1/2)
  6. Accent Essentials (Starburst background cut at 7 1/4" & 6")
Shimmer Paper (White, Blue) Wasau, Holographic-Wal-Mart, Red Cardstock-Bazzill, stash paper

The frame I painted in Brushed Nickel (Rustoleum), and the frame is a 25 cent yard sale find!

Your next stop is Missy at  http://www.quickchickdesigns.blogspot.com.  Make sure to visit all the stops along the way and when you get done, make sure you link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post!!
Happy Crawling!!
