Here is my card.....

Can you guess the theme?


Once you have guessed what the theme is,

at the Scrappy Go Lucky Blog,
and leave a comment with your answer,
to be in with a chance to win one of the
four new release cartridges from Cricut.....

Rock Princess

Good Luck.....



Instructions for my card -

Using Cricut Expression, Gypsy and
Pagoda Passion cartridge.....

1 Using black Bazzill cardstock cut the card base 6inches x 8inches and fold to a landscape orientation - to measure 6 x 4

2 Cut the grey dotty Cristina Re paper slightly smaller than 6 x 4 and attach to front of card

3 From DoubleMates grey cardstock cut the Pagoda (page 61 of Handbook), no features selected, at 3.47 inches
4 From DoubleMates black cardstock cut the Pagoda, shift selected, at 3.47 inches

5 From DoubleMates black cardstock cut 1 lily (page 53 of Handbook), no features selected, at 3.71 inches




6 From DoubleMates white cardstock cut 1 lily (the flower heads), shift selected, at 3.71 inches

7 For 2nd lily, flip the design before cutting the pieces

8 From white Bazzill cardstock cut an oval (I used Nestabilities) and place centrally on card front

9 Layer Pagoda pieces together using foam tape, and place centrally on top of white oval

10 Layer lily pieces together and place either side of Pagoda




Here are the cards I made for the swap
- and I made an extra one
- for you.....

Yes, I am giving this card to one of you
- just leave a comment on this post,

and remember to come back on
Tuesday 17th Aug to see if you have won....


However, not only will you win the card

which I have designed from the card....

The photo mat is ready to take a 6 x 4 photograph

to allow your photo to just slip into place.....
