FCCB Spring Fling Crawl - Spring Sign
















Supplies Used:
Cricut Expression, Cricut Design Studio, Cricut Storybook Cartridge, Cricut Don Juan Cartridge, Cricut Simply Charmed Cartridge, Cricut Create A Critter Cartridge, Bazzill 'Lily Pond', 'Pollen' Cardstock, K&CO 'Lovely' Papers, Fances Meyer Paper(blue), Jillibean Soup 'Half Pound Blossoms' Paper(pink dots), Crinkle Ribbon, Misc - scraps, flowers, ink















Hi Everyone!















Normally, I would be posting the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday of the week, but not today - we have something even better in store for you. The Fantabulous Cricut Blog is having its FIFTH Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop! 








It's Spring Time and everyone at the Fantabulous Cricut had decided to have a SPRING FLING! Each Design Team member will be featuring an original SPRING project that includes PINK, GREEN and YELLOW on it along with at least ONE CRICUT CUT.








If you've come from Maquel's Blog, then you're heading in the right direction. If you just happened to come across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE.








Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at some of our DT member's blogs, and there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a SPRING FLING project at FCCB!








For my project, I created a SPRING sign.


















































































I used the Storybook Cartridge to cut out the 'Marquee2' label using the Tall/Border Feature. This cut doesn't bring a Shadow or Layers, so I used Design Studio to resize the labels and layer them.


































The base of the sign was cut out of chipboard - aka Cereal Box - using my Deep Blade and MultiCut 3. Between the first layer(green) and the second one(blue) I used my homemade dimensionals. The SPRING title is also popped out using dimensionals.


































The SPRING title was designed using the Don Juan Font cartridge and replacing the "I" for a Spring Tulip from the Simply Charmed cartridge.


































The Birdie - also from Simply Charmed - and the Butterfly from Create A Critter are taking a rest on top of the SPRING title.


































To finish off my SPRING sign, I added three paper roses in PINK, YELLOW, and GREEN. The YELLOW rose, is not originally that color. I used my YELLOW ink pad to color a white rose. Cool trick, right?

















Now, what is a SPRING FLING without a GIVEAWAY?!


































What to win these SPRING FLING goodies?  Simply follow these 3 rules:

















1) You MUST be a FOLLOWER or sign up for EMAIL UPDATES.

Email address needs to be verified.

Do both an get an EXTRA entry.

















2) You MUST participate in the Fantabulous Cricut SPRING CRAWL.

















3) You MUST leave a comment here with contact information.

















I will leave this GIVEAWAY open 'til Sunday, April 17th 11:59 PM EST. I'll announce the winner on Monday, April 18th.






























It's your turn! Let's see your SPRING FLING projects!  Make sure to include a CRICUT CUT somewhere on your project and PINK, GREEN, and YELLOW!










































Next stop is Rae from  Wahoo Crafts. Go see what she has in store for you today... And when you're done, make sure to link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post to be entered into the contest!













































Happy Crawling!

This SPRING SIGN will also be entered into the Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge #13 - Storybook or Wrap It Up.

  41. Your sign is awesome! It would go perfectly with my 12x12 spring wall art. :0) I was a sign maker for many years and never thought I'd be doing signs by crafting, but they are a lot more fun than making billboards. LOL You have amazing talent and an eye for detail! Great work and I'm proud to be on the FCCB DT with you! Thanks for the chance to win.
