All That Glitters Blog Hop-Welcome Back-Last Day

Welcome to Daily Grace Creations, our little corner of the blogosphere, and the All That Glitters Blog Hop! If you've come here from The Cricut Diaries wonderful blog you're in the right place! If you've just happened across our blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to A Place For My Cards and start at the beginning.


With the holidays fast approaching we are sharing some wonderful ideas and inspiration for your viewing and crafting pleasure! Each  designer will be featuring an original project(s) made especially for this hop. Make sure to check out each designer's blog. There will be prizes along the way so you don't want to miss anyone.

Donna and I have created several things we would like to share with you.  Before we do though, we should tell you we cut our projects from glitter paper rather than try to apply glitter to each piece individually.  Is that cheating?

We made several ornaments.  The first is a Snowflake from the Joys of the Season Cartridge.  We cut 2 of the Flake3 at 5.325"X6.0".  Then cut Flake4 at 5.181"X4.738.  We layered Flake4 between the 2 Flake3s.  I made a flower from metallic ribbon and adhered it to the outside and glued a Paper Studio gemstone to the center.  We then tied ribbon through a hole in the snowflake to hang it on the tree.
The next ornament is a cross from the Wedding cartridge.  We cut two of these at 4"X6".  Be sure to flip one of these so the designs will line up.  Again they are cut from white metallic paper purchased at Michaels.  After cutting them, we glued them together and added pearls on each side.  I'm not sure if you can see the pearls or not but they're there.
Our angel is cut from the Christmas cartridge at 6".  We cut 2 with the regular feature from white glitter paper.  Again be sure to flip one cut.  We then cut 2 using the blackout feature from gold glitter paper.  We glued all of these together then attached ribbon for hanging.

The JOY is cut at 3 1/2" using the alphabet on the Cindy Loo cartridge.  We welded the letters together in Design Studio.  We cut a shadow of the joy from red glitter paper and adhered it to the back.  We then added red gemstones and ribbon.

Last but not least is our wreath cut from the Joys of the Season cartridge.  We used a 24" mat and the fit to page feature on the cricut.  It measures 12.442"X11.636".  We cut it from green glitter paper, adhered it to a circle of green shimmer paper, then wove ribbon through it and attached a bow.  The ribbon was some we picked up at Michaels or Joann's.  This is probably too big to hang on a tree but it would be cute on a wall.
So, on to our blog candy! We are giving away a set of note cards made with the new Paper Lace cartridge. 


Winning this prize is easy! All it takes is 2 easy steps...

1) Become a follower (if you're not already).

  35. Beautiful ornaments. Glitter paper would be my choice as the way to go rather than to glitter later. However, how does the glitter do going through the Cricut? I have never used GP. Thanks for sharing. {Hugs} Peggy a new follower
