Twinkle Layout

Well I finally got organized enough to actually create a layout that fits into 2 challenges.  Challenge Me Monday #44 is a challenge @ the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.  This weeks challenge was to use a neglected cartridge.  I chose 2, Don Juan and Blackletter, I have never used either of them.  The Music Monday Challenge was hosted by Erin and Angelica.  The song chosen was Satellite by Guster.  We had to create a project with a outer space type theme.


  • My gypsy was very involved in the making of this layout.  The stars are from the Don Juan Cartridge, size 7, 5, 3, and 2", using the stitched feature.  I positioned them where I wanted them on the page and then removed boxes around them using the gypsy's hide key.  The Cricut then only cut the stitching holes.  Background paper is from the K&Co. Designer Paper Classic K McKenna Paper Pad.  
  • Pink craft thread from Michaels.
  • Words cut from Blackletter cartridge @ 2"  letters and shadow were welded using gypsy.  It was a  little tricky to make them line up, but I really like the effect.
  • Photo mats cut @ 6X8" and 5.5X7.5"
  • Pink papers are CTMH.
I think this may be one of my favorite layouts in a while.  I love the  look of the stitching.  It really adds dimension to the layout.
