You’re a Star!

Today is the last day of Cooking With Cricut/Paper Crafting World’s 2nd Blogaversary celebration.  What a week it has been!  I hope you have enjoyed all the great projects we showed you, and that you got some inspiration!  That’s what we’re here for!

The theme for today is You’re A Star, as in vintage Hollywood.  I have another picture of my mother way back in 1945.  She wasn’t a movie star — this photo was taken at a dance she went to — but I think she looks like star material!

For this layout, I used the oval frame and flourish from Celebrate Sophisticate from Paper Crafting World.  The word “glamour” is from the Forever Young Cricut cartridge, page 39.
1945 was cut in Sure Cuts A Lot; the font is called Betty Noir, and I think it’s very glam!  We were also supposed to include a star on our project.  I used the star icon from page 69 of the Wild Card cartridge.  The dotted paper is from AC Patterned paper, the Travel pack, and the red paper and red printed paper are from Close to My Heart.

Make sure you stop by Cooking With Cricut/Paper Crafting World to pick up today’s freebies, and leave a comment to be eligible to win some great prizes there!  Thanks for celebrating PCW/CWC’s second blogaversary with us!


About Evelyn

I created this little blog so that I could have a place to show different crafts that I make for my family, my friends, my students, and myself! I have always enjoyed crafting. I particularly love paper and wool, and that's what I'm currently working with.
