Happy To Be Me Canvas

Hello Krafters,

Over at, I joined the Cricut Challenge for this month. Let me tell you, I haven’t played with my Explore in forever! After doing the update and calibrating the machine, I was set. One thing I do like about Design Space is having access to all of the cartridges I have linked. The down side is having the internet connection. I mean really, if the internet connection is slow or the servers are down, the machine is worthless! Nonetheless, the machine cuts beautifully and I am happy to have it in my arsenal. 

The inspiration came from a booklet I received from the Scrapbook Expo. There is this beautiful canvas in the book for a class the Expo was offering. I believe Quick Quotes was offering the class. Since I had to take my son with me this year, I couldn't take any of the classes. So I decided to do my own interpretation of it on my own and save a few dollars too LOL! 

I used French Manor (clock), George (frames), Floral Embellishments (flowers-or some other floral cartridge, can’t really remember) and Wall Decor and More (florishes). The papers are Prima’s Lyric collection. I stamped images on the back of the paper since the collection is one sided and it would be exposed. I also used Bo Bunny for the leaves. The title was cut from the Grunge die set from Spellbinders.To finish off the canvas, I cut a few butterflies from two different Martha Stewart punches and added some bling to the frame and butterflies. I will add a photo of myself later. 

I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~
