{Fantabulous Cricut} New Years Party on a Page

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #267-Something New
Make a project about or with something new, and explain if it isn't clear!

This Weeks Sponsor

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. If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!


For this weeks challenge I went with a scrapbook layout using my new My Minds Eye Market Street & Now and Then scrapbook kits. I thought the colors in these 2 kits were perfect for a new years page. This photo (as you can tell) isn't from this new years, that's how far behind I am scrappin'

Before we get cutting I wanted to do something in the way of a shaker card on my page, what better holiday to use sequins right? So from a page protector I cut out a section slightly larger than a 5x7 photo and separated the two pieces reserving one for later. I set my 4x6 photo in the center of one half and began dropping sequins, glitter, and bits around the edges until I had it the way I liked it. Next I very slowly and carefully removed the photo and put the 2nd half of the page protector back on top to make my sequin sandwich. To keep it all in a frame, I used my fuse tool to fuse off a
4x6 rectangle in the center where my photo would be, and then fused around
 the outer edges, before adhering the photo on top.

The finished the page, I made many embellishments from cricut cuts. The champagne glasses are actually from a photo booth props cartridge and the January title from Days and Dates. The title and balloons are SVG files from Miss Kate Cuttables, my favorite site for SVGs.

On a side note, if you don't have a subscription to Cricut's image library, you should make it one of your resolutions. It's worth every single penny.

For $9.99/Month you get access to almost every image. I never have to buy cartridges, think about what I have and don't have, I just have everything
