Red, Brown or Pink!

My Cricut Craft Room

Welcome today's theme for Erica's Craft Room is Red, Brown or Pink. I made a layout today using a few different cartridges. I had an idea in my head for what I wanted to do and just ran with it. I really like how it came out too.

 To make this project here is what you will need:
your choose of pattern paper (mine was from Joann's)
glitter paper (mine is from hobby lobby)
Shimmer paper your choice of color ( I used recollections)
ribbon (pink ribbon was from Walmart)
ATG gun
Glue Dots
Zig Glue Pen
Stampin Up pop up glue dots
Cricut cartridges used: Cricut Alphabet ( Love AE2), Desinger's Calender (Be Mine), Art Philosophy (font),  Sweet Hearts (Cupid), Tags, Bags, Boxes and More (Pocket Tag).

I designed my photos where I wanted to them to be, since I like to mat my photos I then took a piece of scrap paper to measure out a 4x6 photo mat. Then I added ribbon and made sure it was pretty loose so that when I do add my photos I won't have a problem. I used glue dots on the back of the paper to hold the ribbon in place. Next I cut out my cupid from Cricut Sweet Hearts cartridge at 2.99 and the Shadow feature is 3.12. I used Stampin Up dimensionals to give it a popped up look. I did this for all my cuts besides my pocket folder. Next I cut out my heart Be Mine from Designer's Calendar at 3.90. Since this heart doesn't have a shadow feature I created one using my Gypsy. What I did is I hid the cuts and lined it up I believe the cut is 4.20. My pocket folder was a pocket tag from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. I cut my pocket tag at 4.02. Then using my scraps I cut 10- 3/4"w x4"h to make my pull out tabs. Using the cluster of hearts on Sweet Hearts I used those to add the numbers as a pull tab I used  my zig pen to glue all those little small pieces together. For the wording 10 Things I Love About You I created that using Art Philosophy Font and Cricut Alphabet for the word Love. These were all cut out at 1.00 and .75.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed everyone's projects today!
