BBTB2 - Cricut Letters or Phrases

Happy Monday!!!

Bitten by the Bug 2

Today over at BBTB2,
the wonderful Pam has chosen a super fun challenge
to use letters or phrases from a Cricut Cartridge!

So for my project, I decided to make a 
Valentine's Card and use one of the
phrases from the TBB&M2 Cart!
LOVE the phrases on this cartridge!!!

And I decided to make a shaker card :)

The heart is from George, the Silhouette feature.
I cut it at 3" 12 times out of white cardstock,
then once out of pink glitter paper.
I cut the regular heart cut twice,
once out of red glitter for the background,
and once out of acetate for the cover.

The phrase was cut at 1 1/4".

The paper is from My Mind's Eye.

The pearls are from Michael's.

Here is a close up of the beads, sequins, and glitter hearts
for the shaker: 

Super fun to make and super easy too!

I hope you will join us this week
for our Phrases/Letters challenge over at BBTB2!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
