Cri-Kits.com Winner & Cutting Cafe' Giveaway

Hello everyone,
I apologize for the delay in posting the winner of the Cri-Kits.com pen set and pen holder. I had some "technical" difficulties. But before I announce that...Here is another giveaway for this week!
THE CUTTING CAFE' is sponsoring a GIVEaway!

The Design Team Members are each allowed to showcase a project and giveaway a set or two of files from the Cutting Cafe's amazing library of printable stamps and cutting files...WHOO HOO!

SO I get to giveaway TWO, ...that's RIGHT TWO (2)sets...So there will be 2 Lucky Winners Drawn This Week!

To enter for a chance to win here:
  1. You must be a follower of my blog...and then like last time, just...
  2. Leave a comment on any posts I make this week!
That's it! Super easy! EVERYONE can join in on the FUN! Giveaway entries will be good until Saturday at 5pm EST.
So Here is my first of a couple of projects this week using the Cutting Cafe's great files!

This is a view of the entire layout. I used their Tulip border and daisy border cutting files. I also used their "If Friends Were Flowers Sentiment" From their Beautiful Blooms Set.
Here is an angled view. I wanted to show that I raised the frame with double foam tape. This added extra dimension to the project. I also cut the tulip border in the same colored paper as the background. It is very subtle but in person it is so pretty. This technique is called "Faux Embossing".
I added this cute butterfly. It is the butterfly from the Indie Art Cricut Cartridge. I "drew" it with my Cri-Kits.com pens and then cut it with my Cricut. I wanted to show you that this can be done with your Cricut and cartridges as well. I did use the Gypsy to get my cut line very close to the draw line. I am attaching the Gypsy file below for those that have the Gypsy and the Indie Art Cartridge.
Please be sure to hop over to the Cutting Cafe' site and check out all the other participants and enter their giveaways too! How fun...Lot's of chances to win :-)
