April Showers at Fantabulous Cricut

Hi everone!  This week's challenge theme at Fantabulous Cricut is April Showers.  You need to use an umbrella or hat on your project.  The April Shower's cartridge has a lot of really cute cuts on it and includes an umbrella.  I love this cartridge because things are so easy to put together!

Here are the details:
  • Umbrella from April Showers cut at 
  • Stamp from My Pink Stamper Fabulous Phrases set
  •  DCWV the Celebration Stack patterned paper
  • Helmar Scrap Dots
  • Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive
  • EK Success edge punch
  • American Crafts ribbon
  • Glam Pink Stickles
I have recently discovered the Helmar adhesives and love them!  The Scrap Dots is so fun to work with, and the Quick Dry Adhesive is liquid but does not leave any bumps.  I used the Scrap Dots to pop up the umbrella.

Make sure to visit the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to see the designers awesome projects and to play along yourself!!


  1. SO very pretty, love the pattern paper and the way you curved the stamp around the umbrella to cute :)

  2. Helen, this card is just so springy. It's gloomy here today so this card is the bright spot in the day. Thanks for sharing.
