A Fancy Birthday!

Hi everyone!  I've been working on some special projects so haven't posted much this week.  Here's a page I made for a challenge.  I had to use 4 cricut cuts, 3 Teresa Collins products and make it elegant.  I really do love the way this turned out, even though this is not how I usually scrapbook.  And of course, I made it pink :)

Here are the details:
  • Cartridges:
    • Elegant Edges photo mat cut at 4 x 6 and 4 1/4 x 6 1/4 each
    • French Manor Dress Form cut at 8 inches
    • French Manor Mirror cut at 1 1/4 inches
    • Cricut American Alphabet letters cut at 1 1/4 inches
  • Teresa Collins Products:
    • Posh Black Lace Cardstock
    • Posh Trims--Pearls and Skirt
    • Jesse's Jewels Blingage
    • Miranda's Jewels Blingage
  • Paper from The Paper Studio
  • American Crafts Ribbon
  • Glam Pink Stickles
  • Helmar 450 Quick Dry Glue
  • Pop dots


I had a lot of fun with this page.  The mirror just cuts out the frame and I had this shiny silver cardstock that I cut and put behind it to make it really look like a mirror.  It might even be from Teresa Collins--I just don't remember since it was a scrap.  I don't know if you can tell, but I completely stickled the letters.  I did this before gluing them down so I didn't get stickles all over the place

Thanks for stopping by!
