Love Struck Layout - Cricut

Hello crafty friends,
Today I am sharing another layout I had created with a valentine’s –love theme.

Here is a view of the entire layout. I actually used my cricut for several of the elements. I had made a version of this layout a LLOOOONG time ago for a class I taught and as I was going through my “valentine” stuff, I found my extras bag of goodies and decided to freshen it up. The majority of it was created with cuts from my various cricut cartridges.


The Love Letters were from the Mini Monograms Cartridges.
The Struck Letters were from the Base Camp Cartridge.


The Wings, Hearts arrow and sash from the Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge
The Scallop Circles were from the Art Philosophy Cartridge.
The bear was from the George and Basic Shapes Cartridge. With the exception of the arms. Those were hand drawn at the time. The background paper was from the Bo Bunny Oh La La Cupid Collection. The Black and White Polka Dot Paper was from Pebbles, Inc. Basics Stack from Hobby Lobby.

I used the following inks:
Saddle Ink from the Basics Ink Pad Set for the bear parts.
Sky ink from the Whimsy Ink Pad Set for the wings and sash.
Honey from the Enchantment Ink Pad Set for the Arrow Tips and feather-bottom parts
Barn Red from the Adventure Ink Pad Set for the Red Hearts. I did also go over the larger ones with some dry decorator chalks to add extra depth.
Blush from the Whimsy Ink Pad Set for the pink and white hearts.

This bear was made right around the time I created my first Cricut piecing. If you would like to see some of the other ones I have made, you can visit my gallery HERE.  I am working on making recipes for all of these, but it always seems to get pushed back. I am sorry about that, but will work to get it done soon.
