Cut it Up Mothers’ Day

CIU challenge blogHello, everyone! Soon it will be Mothers’ Day, and we’re honoring all mothers at Cut it Up Challenge Blog today.  I’ve been wanting to make a word album for some time, but always mess it up.  This time I succeeded!! (Lucky Mom only has three letters!!)

I guess it could be use as either a card or a mini-album.  It measures 4.5 inches high by 7 wide.  I put white squares inside that could either be journaling areas or could hold some small photos:

P1060052web P1060051webI used Sure Cuts A Lot 2 with my Cricut Expression.  Using Lobster 2 font in shadow, I welded the letters to rectangles of increasing widths.  I also cut the letters without the shadow, both regular and flipped horizontally, in a darker shade of pink so the word MOM would stand out.

I finished it off with some liquid pearls.  This was a fun project!

Now we’d like you to link your Mothers’ Day project up at Cut it Up Challenges! 

One random winner will receive this prize:

Good luck!  I can’t wait to see what you make!!

    I have been waiting for your next post…haha WOW! Now I know what you have been busy doing. This is fabulous! I just love shaped/dimensional cards. I want to make a Mom-to-be card and would love to try to work it into your composition. So busy, but have every intention of joining the challenge for this week.
