I Love me some Amber Ink iPapers!

I took a little time today to play around with my Cricut with my new Make the Cut software. I'm totally loving the new "Print and Cut" feature of the MTC 3.0 Beta version!

ALL of the papers used in this project are from Amber Ink! You can go HERE to check out the iPapers that are available!!

I started with a metal tin I received in a blog candy from my friend and fellow Fresh Brewed Crew member Audrey. When I opened the box, I thought Christmas had come early! Thank you, Aud... it's AMAZING the amount of "goodies" you packed into that box!!!

The rosette and center medallion were both cut on the Cricut. The snowflake in the center is a punch from Tonic Studios. The border punch on the dark blue is from Fiskars.

Based on all that's been going on, feeling "Blue" seemed appropriate and I am really proud of how this one turned out. It was great to get my mind off "things" for awhile and just go with the flow. Cutting, gluing, folding, stacking, layering, punching... what a great way to float off into another place!

Lucky for me, this project fits a BUNCH of challenges this week!
I think this is the first time I have ever entered 10 or more challenges with ONE project!

Well, these are the ONLY kinds of blues to have at this time of year and anyone receiving this would not be blue for long. Okay, enough plays on words, let's start telling you how marvelous this is! I really like the papers you've chosen and how you incorporated the frosted theme into your project beautifully. I hope you come back for more challenges, thank you for playing with us this time!
