French Manor Bonjour Canvas

I'm really enjoying French Manor, the first cricut circle cart that was released. My daughter is redoing her room in a Paris motif so this cart is perfect for the projects we have planned for her room. I thought I'd share an altered canvas we did recently.
We started with a 12x12 prepped canvas and covered it with some scrapbook paper and modge podge. All of the cuts are from the French Manor cart and we blinged it up with pearls, rhinestones and my newest tool the I-Rock.
 And let me tell you it ROCKS!! I love it. The jewels will not budge once they're set. It will set of fabric, paper, etc. I have been told any heat set jewels will work with it but I've only used the I-Rock jewels so far.

Some of the cuts I just wrapped out the canvas for added dimension.
I hope you enjoyed our little project for today and if you did please leave a comment. I'll be posting more pics of my daughters room and things we create soon.

Join me in the Cricut Circle

The circle is opening again for a limited time but by referral only. I would love to have you join us. If you have ever given any thought to joining the Cricut Circle NOW is the time. After September 13th the circle enrollment will be closed again.

I have been so pleased with the Cricut Circle 

I won a Cricut Expression for my church's school. That alone made it worth every penny for me. There are many events planned for members in local areas including swarms, meet and greets, and just plain old fun. Several were fortunate enough to attend CHA and receive various prizes, one being the IMAGINE. There are definitely great perks available!

Check here for more details. The yearly membership is definitely the way to go. For $274.99 you receive all I mentioned above. An exclusive cartridge quarterly. These are full sized cartridges not available anywhere else. The first is French Manor which is awesome. They've give us a sneak peak of an image for the next one but I can't share. You'll have to join to see. A great message board, with fun activities going on all of the time. Including contests and giveaways!  You will receive Cricut Reward points for the membership fee price. You earn double points for all your purchases plus you receive 10% off those same purchases. It's a win win.

If you'd like to join remember it's only open until Sept 13th and by referral only. Leave me a note or email me for an invite. I'd love to have you in the circle with me.

4 & 5 Months; Baby Album

I did single layouts for months 4 & 5. I must have been busy chasing him and not enough time to snap photos. LOL  

The 4 and star negative are more chipboard pieces as well as the bracket. I used rubons for the pride & Joy and 5 months.
