This has to be one of my favorite projects ever! It's a very detailed little crop room scene.
The girl is from the Shall We Dance Cartridge. First, I drew lines in her hair with a marker & added a premade flower die cut to her hair. Then I added a chipboard flower and a lot of Irock bling to her shirt. For her pants I cut them in a paper that I think looks like denim. I hand trimmed them to be a low rise style and added some jewelry chain to form a belt. I just cut off the rest of her legs.
"Create" is spelled out in some Thickers stickers.
Most of the other cuts are from the Everyday Cricut cartridge. So, unless I state otherwise that's where the rest are from.
For the Gypsy I used some Glossy Accents to make part of it shiny. I printed an actual Gypsy screen shot that I found on Joyslife.com where she was showing the Smiley Cards cartridge. I used an Irock piece for the button. You can also see her fingernail polish that I drew on with a marker (although I wasn't very good at it! *LOL*)
The actual desk is a trapezoid type shape (I think that's the right word! *LOL*) Then there is a rectangle in the front I put on pop dots for dimension. Here you can see a little bitty Cricut Cartridge box. I printed out one of my favorite cards ever and mounted the photo on some cardstock to make a little mini card. Then there's an ink pad I left very simple. Also you see a little wooden stamp block. I stamped that tiny flower on the back of it for the image. The flower stamp is from Stampin' Up's Itty Bitty Bits.
Here is a Cricut Expression Machine. The cuts were VERY tiny and hard to work with, but I think it's cute. I used some glitter paper, white, and gray. For the parts that were so small I couldn't get them to cut - like all the little buttons on the left. I used some Silver Stickles in place of the cuts. Here you can also see the little bracelet I made for my cropper. I took some clear stretch cord and some tiny beads and basically made a real bracelet on a tiny scale to go around her hand. It's taped in the back. This way it has the dimension of real jewelry.
I created a little wall hanging by printing out my blog button. Then I created a frame for it. I cut a scalloped square from Gypsy Wanderings and then hand cut out the square in the center to make it a frame. I poked a couple of holes in it to string jewelry wire through - and then placed this around a brad I had placed through my cardstock.
This project was fun, and I think it came out really well. However, I will say that many of these tiny pieces were kind of difficult to cut. I am so glad to have this piece to display in my room. I am not very good at decorating so it will be nice to have something cute on my wall :)
