Hello everyone, it's challenge time over at Fantabulous Cricut. This weeks challenge is "Fall is in the air". You are challenged to create a fall themed project, using at least one Cricut cut. Ever since our vinyl university, I have been hooked on working with vinyl, and visit the dollar store on a regular basis, looking for things that I can use. I found these great candle holders for $1.00 each at the Dollar Tree, and I bought the apple scented candles there too. I used pieces of leftover vinyl from another project, so this set cost me a total of $8.00 plus tax. I am thinking of making some more to give away as Christmas gifts :)
I wish I could take all the credit for these, but I got the idea, from a photographer friends site. They used tea cups with the word "LOVE" spelled out as a part of a bridal portrait session. I used the Cindy Loo, font layer to cut the letters, then it was a simple of putting them on the candle holders. A couple of them tried to bubble up at first, but I just kept pushing the air out and smoothing it, until they laid down onto the glass. I love how the red of the candles peak through the letters. They are even more beautiful when they are lit. I have included some pictures, but they don't do it justice.
My name is JoNeita Kelly and I have been crafting for at least the last 20 years. I live in Forney, Texas with my son, Dallas. I am a High School teacher and Cheerleading Coach. I love to craft and to continue to improve my photography and editing skills whenever I have free time. What I love most is telling our story using pictures, it is the most important gift I can leave my family.
