I am afraid that I am guilty of buying tools and supplies and then never using them, and I am desperately trying to break myself of that habit. My husband got me a wonderful Cricut for my birthday, and I so rarely use it that I made myself a promise that the next project I made would incorporate this cool tool. Lucky for me, this week's JustRite Friday Challenge: Color! had me thinking of a little way to thank hubby for being so nice to me.
For my project, I decided to make a heart basket to fill with some sweet treats and used the lovely challenge colors as a starting point. The twist this week was to make and use a handmade embellishment, and I decided to go all out with some felt rosebuds (you know I love those!) and I found the perfect sentiment to express what I was feeling. Here are the details!

  1. Die-cut heart basket with Cricut from card stock.
  2. Die-cut rosebuds from felt and assemble (not: one die will yield 3-4 rosebuds). Adhere with sticky tape.
  3. Thread ribbon into basket. Tie bow.
  4. Stamp sentiment. Die-cut and apply liquid dimensionals. Adhere with glue.
  • Stamps: Friendship Set (JustRite Stampers)
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
  • Card Stock: Basic Black, Riding Hood Red (Stampin' Up!)
  • Fibers: Riding Hood Red Satin (SU!); Ivory Felt (Papertrey Ink)
  • Dies: Classic Heart Nestabilities (Spellbinders)
  • Accents: Ruby Red Liquid Pearls (Ranger)
  • Tools: Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes & More Cartridge (Provo Craft)
  • Dies: Bigz 3-D Flowers (Sizzix)

I love your Cricut project. I too am guilty of the buying things I don't need. I even sold my Cricut to get rid of some guilt, it helped. lol Hugs,
