Hi everyone! Tonight I finally finished up my monthly challenge project for the Cricut Circle blog! The theme for the month was "Celebrating Creativity". I decided to spruce up the magnet board that I recently hung up in my craft room for hanging up finished layouts.
The cartridges I used were:
Hannah Montana - crown frame
Botanicals - Scrap Queen (welded letters with my Gypsy)
Happily Ever After - Crown magnets
Rock Princess - Skull magnets
Home Accents - Hot pink flower magnets
Some other guidelines we had to follow were:
- Using the shadow feature (I did this on "Scrap Queen" and on the crown magnets.
- Using patterned paper
- Using embellishments to enhance on the of the cuts ( I used lots of bling!)
I was so nervous about cutting magnet that I totally avoided it. I found out it cuts really smoothly! In case you are interested in cutting magnet material, here are the settings I used with a deep cut blade and housing:
Blade depth - 6
Pressure - 5
Multi cut - 3
Another note: if you are interested to know how I made the large flower magnets, there are a ton of tutorials on Youtube. These particular ones were made using the Accent Essentials cartridge. To view Christina's tutorial, click HERE
Hope you like my project! I am really loving how it turned out! Wish me luck!
