Love Layout, Gypsy Files

Good morning crafting friends,

This is Melin of CookingWithCricut.com. Hope you’re having a super happy Friday! Are you getting ready for a great weekend of crafting fun?!

My project today was completed using the following cartridges:
  • Bloom
  • Love Struck 2010
  • Sweethearts
  • Accent Essentials

  • I also used my Gypsy.
Here is a picture of the complete layout.

I used my Gypsy to cut the heart just the right size.
I used my Gypsy and Bloom to cut out the Medallion.
I used my Gypsy and Sweethearts to weld and cut out the love with the flourish.
I used my Gypsy and Accent Essentials for the Scalloped Border Strip.
I used my Gypsy with the Bloom cartridge to create the rose petals. I welded one of the images on the bloom cartridge into a triangle shaped petal.

Here is the Keys used to find the “petal” in its singular form.

To create the rose, I simply staggered and layered the petals. I did use some Glimmer Mist to add some shimmer to them as well as make the paper more pliable. This is so that you can shape the petals.

Well that’s my project for today. I hope you have enjoyed it. I want to thank Pam and all the Bug Bytes girls for letting be a part of such a wonderfully talented team of crafters :-).

Please be sure to stop by my blog tomorrow: CookingWithCricut.com. We are having a blog hop for Saturday and Sunday so there will be lots more Cricut Creations for you to be inspired by :-)

I will post the Gypsy files on here as soon as my “G” is finished updating.
Thanks again!

I love how you really put your Gypsy to work in making your piece. I am so new to card making and right now I only enter Cooking With Cricut challenges. I never thought I would want a Gypsy but what you did on it...well, who knows. That item might make its way to my wishlist.

These roses are absolutely lovely. I think I will try to make some petals from the carts I do have. Thanks for the idea!
