Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge

This is my entry for the Cricut Circle Challenge.  We were supposed to scraplift one of the projects that was done by one of the Circle Blog Designers and put our own twist to it.  There are so many awesome designers at the CC blog that it was hard to choose just one so my daughter sort of chose one for me to copy - she wanted a sign for her door to keep boys out of her room.  (Now my son wants one too to keep HER out of his room - but we'll get to his sign hopefully later next week)  In addition, we were to use products from at least 2 of the blog's sponsors. 

Below is the inspiration that I scraplifted.  It was a door sign created by Jana Eubank on December 15th, as posted in the blog.


I wanted to make the door hang sturdy but I didn't have any chipboards, so I just went ahead and cut the door hang image using regular cardstock and layered them for thickness - so thrilled to be able to use my new Xyron 900 Creative Station for this job!

I cut a total of 6 door hang images, again for thickness.  After stacking the first three together, I proceeded to put the sheer ribbon around the edges before I stacked the other three layers.  

BTW if you've never cut Tinker Bell, do NOT cut her any smaller than 6 inches - darn Tinker Bell almost brought me to tears to assemble, I kid you not!  

Here's another look at the double sided door hang.

Here are the details of my project:
* Products from blog sponsors - Irock gems on Tinkerbell's hair and on the leaf cut, and Bazzil Basics Paper for the door hang image cuts
*Cricut cuts used - Tinker  Bell (front and back of door sign) and her layers, as well as the leaf and layer  from Disney - Tinker Bell & Friends cart, "Mya's Room" and "Go away!" letters cut from Alphalicious cart, door hang from Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cart
*buttons from my stash
*white sheer ribbon from the dollar store
*half pearls from Michaels
*flowers made using Cuttlebug Quilling kit
*white Sakura gel pen for the faux stitching and the whites on Tinker's eyes
*D'vine Swirls CB folder for texturizing Tinker's wings
*Star Dust Ranger Stickles to bling her wings
*butterfly is a 3-D sticker from K & C
Thanks again for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
