Cartridge Showcase: Serenade

Good morning crafty friends,
I wanted to share a couple of layouts I created for a Cartridge Showcase that I wasn't able to get done in time last week. Had a pesky little thing like TAXES to take care of lol!
The Cartridge is the Serenade Lite Cartridge.



Natural Beauty

View of the entire layout. I created the cute little bears from cuts on the Serenade cartridge. 
The flowers and stems were also from the Serenade Cartridge. The Natural Beauty was from 
the Give A Hoot Cartridge as the Serenade cartridge doesn’t have any titles or fonts.

Closer look at the flowers and foliage. I layered the flowers and used a pop dot so that 
the photos will slide under any overhang easily.

Close up of the natural beauty title. This title came from the Give A Hoot cartridge. 
Unfortunately the Serenade cartridge doesn’t have any titles or font on it.
Products Used

Bazzill: Lavender, Purple, White and Green Cardstock
Cricut Serenade and Give A Hoot Cartridge

Sweet Spring

View of the entire layout. Again all the die cuts are from the Serenade cartridge 
with the exception of the title. That came from the Hello Kitty Font cartridge.

bear sitting-500
Here is a closer look at the cute little bear sitting and holding her flower.

bear with flower pot-500
Here is a closer look at the little bear standing up and holding her flower pot with flowers.

bow-500
I always like to wrap one of the larger photo mats with a ribbon or extra embellishment. 
I think it adds a nice touch and makes one of the pictures a focal picture Smile

butterflies-500
Here is a closer look at some of the butterflies. I cut the base layer in plain white cardstock 
and then again in patterned paper. I glued the patterned paper to the base to give it more strength. 
Then I cut the corresponding decorative top piece in white and stickled that.

flowers-500
Here is a closer look at some of the pretty Prima flowers I added. 
I used an EK Punch for the little decorative flourishes.

sweet title-500
Finally, a closer view of the little butterflies and the the lettering for the word “sweet” on the title.

for the lovely birds and birdcages.
