WISHING YOU A SUNSHINY DAY!! - Paper Lace 2, George, Flower Shoppe

Hi Everyone!

Last week, Mom called me to say that she had made the ugliest card she had ever made that day!  Well, Mom says that a lot and it never turns out to be true.  So I went over to her house to pick up Jacob and sorry to say, I had to agree with her!!  I think she must have been suffering from "card block!!"  She told me that I had to try and make a card using Paper Lace 2 to make up for the one that she had made. 

Well, my best friend, Stacy, had a birthday yesterday and this is my experience using Paper Lace 2!  As you will see, I had my struggles too!!  "Card Block" must be catching!!

Using Cricut Craftroom and my Jukebox, I used the square on George to form a card base sized 10.25" x 6.75.  From the Paper Lace 2 cartridge, I chose to use the Sunflower to form a die cut on the front of the card. 

One problem though - I forgot to remove the outline on the outside of the flowers.  Here's what happens when you do that!!

When you forget to do that, you don't get a card!!  So I put this aside for future use and removed the outline around the flowers. 

I was on the right track then!!

I folded the card in half and inserted blue cardstock for the inside of the card.  I cut out a border of sunflowers for the inside of the card.  I placed a blue border across the center front of the card and made a sunflower at 2 3/4" using the Flower Shoppe cartridge.   

Above is the finished product - all in all I think it turned out pretty good in spite of all my problems at the start. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Mom and I appreciate your visits and your comments!  I hope you have a stress free Monday.  Until another day, God Bless You!  Donna


  1. Wow that is a wonderful card.
    I have all of those carts and am going to craftlift this one for sure!!!
    One thing... how did you get your jukebox to work with CCR? I tried and gave up. Is there a trick?
    Could you email me with the answer. Thanks.

  3. Wow Donna! This is an amazing project! It looks like you used a stamp all over the page set, but it's so cool using the Cricut!
