Let's Party

Good morning. Scrapbookpal recently added new members to their Design Team and I am thrilled to have been selected to be a part of this awesome group.

Be sure to check back often as the team has some amazing projects to show you.

I am so excited to post my first design team project for Scrapbookpal. A friend is having a party for her husband so I thought I'd create a centerpiece for the table. I have had this lovely Prima Vase for quite some time, never knowing what to do with it. Well, this project was perfect and with the all the supplies available at Scrapbookpal, it was easy finding just the right Cricut cartridges to create this centerpiece.



Start by lightly running a brown inkpad around the edges of the vase, giving it just a hint of color.

Using the Father's Day Cartridge, create the Poker Elements



Cut the Poker elements at fit-2-page (resulting in a 7 3/4" cut) twice from white cardstock and once from chipboard
Ink the edges with brown ink
Using the Poker layer, cut the Poker chips twice from green cardstock at 7 3/4"
Assemble by placing the chipboard piece between the two white cardstock layers leaving an opening at the bottom to insert the dowels

Using the Plantin Cartridge, create the deck of cards



Cut uppercase letters J, Q, and K and the number 10 at 2" from white cardstock
Using the shadow feature, cut them all again at 2" from red cardstock
Assemble the white onto it’s shadow

To create the deck of cards cut 4 pieces of black cardstock 2 1/2" x 4", corner rounding the edges
Add the letters and numbers to the cards

Using the Indie Art Cartridge create the Dice and Card Elements -



Cut the diamond, heart, spade and club at 2" from white cardstock
Using the blackout feature, cut them again at 2" from red cardstock
Adhere these to the back of the deck of cards created above



Cut the dice at 6” from black cardstock
Cut the dice + blackout at 6” from white cardstock

Cut the dice at 6 ¾” three times from white cardstock
Cut the dice + blackout at 6 ¾” from red cardstock and black cardstock
Adhere the layers together

Cut the dice at 3” from green, red and white cardstock
Cut the dice + blackout at 3” twice from white cardstock and once from black cardstock



Using shift + dice, cut Lucky at 3” from red cardstock and white cardstock
Using shift + dice + shadow, cut Lucky at 3” from red cardtock and white cardstock
Adhere the layers together



Cut the diamond, heart, spade and club at 3" from black cardstock and white cardstock
Ink the edges of the white pieces with brown ink
Using the blackout feature, cut them again at 3" from black cardstock and white cardstock
Assemble the white onto the black and the black onto the white so you have 2 sets
Place them on opposite sides of the vase

Using the Designer’s Calendar Cartridge, create the double dice



Using shift + events + 29, cut the double dice at 3" from black cardstock and white cardstock
Cut them again at 4" from black cardtock and white cardstock
Fold on the score lines and ink the edges with brown ink
Place them on opposite sides of the vase with foam adhesives


Using the Graphically Speaking Cartridge, create the hand



Cut the hand (image 38 + icon) at 4” from red cardstock twice
Cut the hand (image 38 + icon blackout) at 4” from white cardstock
Adhere the red layers on top of the white hand

To finish, arrange the elements in the vase, then adhere additional dice to cover the dowels. I added 2 large dice to the dowel holding the poker elements, then added additional dice to the back.



The deck of cards was placed in the hand and Lucky was placed so that it was sitting on top of the Poker elements.



Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you've enjoyed this project.
