Cricut Monthly Challenge Project for January!

For this month’s challenge we would like to see you scraplift one of the projects you have seen us present here on the blog. It can be anything! And feel free to add your own creative twist to the project. Project must be newly created for this challenge and should include the following elements to qualify.
  • Use 2 or more Cricut Cuts on the project.
  • Use a project you have seen on the Cricut Circle Blog as inspiration for your project.
  • Use products from atleast two of our Sponsors (click on the “Sponsors” along the top of the page to see a list of manufacturers).
I chose to do the project: 


The two sponsors that I chose to use were Bazzill Paper and Imaginisce IRock Tool for bling. The beautiful paper colors I chose were: Blackbird, Vibrant Blue, North Sea, Guacomole, Stonehenge, Ruby Slipper, Passionate, Piglet, African Daisy, Mexican Poppy, Turquoise, White Bazzill colored with my Imagine More Art Cartridge for Rules card. I blinged the top and side of the box and all of the Jukebox card with clear crystals.  I used glossy accents on the cards black areas, Martha Stewart ultrafine glitter on the poodles leash (what poodle would not have a sparkly leash!).  I inked a few edges.  It said to add our own twist to the project so I used the Nifty Fifties cartridge because my husband's birthday is tomorrow (card below on earlier post) and we love the fifties!  Since it is a monthly challenge I decided to use a shape for my cards.

Recipe:  Find a nice box.
I put a homemade divider in the box and then measured both insides to make the cards to fit the box. 
The cards are cut at 4 1/4 x 2 3/4
The designs on the back of the cards for matching are 2 1/2 x 3
I cut 14 Black Shadow Jukeboxes in Blackbird
I cute 14 Blue Shadow Jukebox with the Image Flipped in Blue
Glued those images back to back and trimmed any excess showing
I cut all 14 of the jukeboxes layers and used the xyron X for all the small pieces and assembled those.
I cut 2 of each of the pictures for the matching game
I then put bling on the jukebox.
I used Cindy Loo for the design on the box.  I cut the design at just under 6x6 in Yellow and in Blue.  I used  the blue on the top and only used the "tear out" throw away pieces of the yellow for the sides of the box.  I used the clear rhinestones on all 3 sides of the box and on the top.  
The top of the box has a doily in the center that is layered over pink with the words 1950s Memory game layered in yellow and red.
I love the little pocket on the inside to hold the Rules card!! It makes it more authentic to have a Rules card I believe.
I saw some people put how many "cuts" they made.  Uncountable! 

I hope you enjoy my twist on this scraplift.  I really enjoyed challenging myself to complete this!!
