Cut It Up Challenge #14 - Dr. Suess Theme

Hello friends and welcome to my first DT project post for the Cut it up Challenge Blog!!!

CIU Challenge #14 is Happy Birthday Dr. Suess. His birthday was March 2nd and to celebrate all of his amazing talent we've been asked to make a project inspired by one of his books.

For my project, I decided to make a few bookmarks. I can always use book marks since I read quite a bit in my off time and of course like Mother like Daughter so I had to make two of each. ;)

Here they are! What do you think? Pretty Suess-ie if I do say so myself. :)

To start, I used MCCR (my cricut craft room) and the Art Philosophy cart. I choose the tag on page 50 and resized it to 2 x 7" to give a longer leaner look. I cut this out first on chipboard using the multi cut feature (2 times).

Then I went back to my file in MCCR and I copied the bookmark 4 times and flipped two of the images. I selected my CS and cut these out again. I used DCWV Grade School for the Cat in the Hat and DCWV Fun in the Sun for the Lorax.

I used the free classroom downloadable images for the Cat in the Hat and the Lorax. I fussy cut around my images after printing them and adhered them to my chipboard bookmarks. I colored the lorax with colored pencils since he was just an outline.

The tree stump is from Hampton Art Foot long stamp set. I stamped that on yellow CS and fussy cut around the image then topped it off with some yellow stickles. I gave the truffula trees a little sparkle too with some orange peel stickles. Then I added some ribbon from my stash to finish the look.

Hop on by the Cut It Up Blog to see the inspirational projects the design team has made and to join in on the fun!

Thanks for stopping by.
