Happy Birthday, Cricut! It's day two of the Cricut's birthday celebration and I have another birthday layout to share. This was the second of the three layouts that I submitted to the Cricut Birthday Celebration. I love the large background doily from the Basic Cake cartridge, especially in Cricut Green!
**** UP DATE **** This layout won!!! At 6:37 am this morning Cricut announced that this layout won for best Cricut theme!!!! Woo-hoo!! I am so excited that I am having trouble typing!!!
Using my lastest Cricut Circle cartridge, Cricut Everyday, I cut the large logo cricut circle, then used scissor to cut away part of the top circle to create the letter "C" in the work Cricut. I used bright colors - Cricut green, pink (for the Pink Cricuts) and blue because I have a blue expression.
I have always loved this party horn cut from Celebrations. I cut the top layer twice and used scissors to cut away the mouth piece on the pink cut and to keep only the mouth piece on the blue cut. The shadow cut is in dark blue.
I put a fun party hat on the "C" cricut head - It is Cricut's birthday after all. I added a flower behind the top of the hat and I added a gem to the middle of the hat top.
I have one other thing to share today. I ordered a glass tile backsplash tile kit from DIY Network last week and it arrived this afternoon. The box claimed that the entire project could be done in two hours, which I did not believe, but I decided to install my tile last night anyway. Over all, including cleaning up, the tile took me about three hours to cover 15 square feet. I hope you don't mind, but I am going to share photos of my first tile project.
I went with Almond colored tile, which has a touch of metallic copper and gold as well some tans and light browns. I thought that the almond would work with our white cabinets and multi colored earth tone counter tops.
The almond tile also blends well with the 4x4 ceramic tile over the sink and cook top. I just need to do a few finishing touches, but the work is really finished.
I will be back tomorrow to share my final Cricut birthday layout.
