The Country Life cartridge available from Scrapbook Pal for a great price, is just full of fun and sweet images. I just recently moved into my new home and wanted to make a wall hanging for my laundry room. This cartridge was perfect! I found a wall hanging at a local thrift store that I could alter and a few Cricut cuts later I had myself a perfect addition to my laundry room:) Here's how I made it:
*Using the Country Life cartrige cut the laundry cut on page 59 at 5".
*Cut layer 2 with the shift on at 5"
*For the sentiment cut the phrase option at 2 3/4"
*To layer colors for the clothing cut layer 1 and layer 2 at 5" in desired colors.
*For the rest of the clothing cut laundry with shift on at 5".
*For the flowers cut the layer 1 wldflwrs with the REAL DIAL SIZE ON. at 2".
*Using the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge cut leaf 4 at 1" and 1 1/4" four times.
*Emboss clothes with Swiss Dots and Victoria Cuttlebug embossing folders.
*With a white signo pen add faux stitching around the border.
*Lightly ink the sentiment, "Fresh and Lovely" with Creamy Brown fluid chalk ink.
Assemble the hanging and enjoy your addition to your laundry room!
