Now to the projects!
I don't get snow where I live unless we get lots of rain and head to the Mountains. So when I heard about this hop I knew exactly what I wanted to create, a Frozen themed layout using my new Frozen Cricut Cartridge. I am thrilled with how it turned out but let me just say it took days of cutting and piecing. I had blade issues, I had mat issues, I screamed and cussed at my Explore like never before. You will be glad to know everything is better now and we have made up and are friends again! LOL! So here it is, my pride and glory... I hope you enjoy it!
I used lots of glitter paper for the snowflakes, title, and the borders. It cut fairly easy in the Cricut but wore the blade down. My suggestion is save one blade for just glitter cardstock.
Elsa is gorgeous! Her top gave me all kinds of headaches. It just would not cut the details out. I finally changed the blade, the mat, and set the pressure to intricate and boom!! A perfect cut!
The snowflakes details are amazing to me. I love that the Explore was able to cut out all those fine lines.
Olaf is super cute and was honestly the easiest part of this layout.
My final touch was adding the sequins around the pages. It gives it just the right sparkle!
I am glad I made two of them! Next time should be easier now that I know what to expect!
Up next is the talented Jessica's blog.
