“Flirty” Ideas

This summer at the Close To My Heart Convention, I taught a Cricut Class featuring the Flirty Paper Pack.  Here are a few of the Layouts I made with this versatile paper pack.  I’ll post some card ideas another day.  Enjoy!

There are many fun techniques on this LO.  I designed it by cutting a Cricut Artiste frame out of Chocolate CS and using the outside edge on the right page and connected both pages by over-lapping the frame into the 2nd page.  To add variety and texture, I scored and sanded Chocolate CS and New England Ivy CS with varying spaces.  I cleaned the NE Ivy sanded lines and sponged Goldrush into the lines.  I colored some of our absorbent wooden buttons with Goldrush marker and tied with chocolate waxy flax – plus waxy flax cross-stitching around the page. I put Liquid Glass on the leaves of the Flirty Complements Dimensional Elements tree (creating a protective resist) then sponged more fibrant color onto the tree.  The larger single 3-D leaves are rubbed onto matching stamp pads and coated in Liquid Glass as well as coating the words and sayings.  I used our corner rounder to scallop the paper Flirty paper strip that goes across the bottom of the large picture.  Used the Paradise Paper Flowers in Sunset throughout the page and folded the 2 in the top left corner, adding buttons for flower centers. The yellow scallop frame is actually 2 Cricut frames cut down middle and over-lapped to elongate, using the extra center pieces for accents throughout the page.  Fun!

This LO featuring my adorable granddaughter, Lexi, was created using my left-over scraps of paper and one of our new sizes of flip-flaps to show more pictures from her first year.  The base pages are on Kraft paper using brush-strokes of our pearl paint.

Can you believe that Lexi actually has a bib to match the Flirty paper!?!  Stitching can add so much to a LO but it’s not always convenient to use a sewing maching!  So “feaux stitching” is the perfect solution! I used a lot of Feaux stitching on this LO.  I’ll post the instructions later on my upcoming “techniques” category.  Or e-mail me with questions.  I also colored our color-ready ribbon in Bamboo ink to match.  Isn’t she cute!?!

I decided to show-off Lexi’s “flirt” bib in one of our cool new Bracket Frames.   The shadow box effect with the 1″ depth makes it really fun to use 3-D effects.
