Thursday's Tutorial #8

This week's tutorial focuses on a project that was originally not for Cricut users. What's so great about crafting is that you can take a great idea and easily incorporate it into a Cricut design.

Courtney Zavala has a great blog called Hand Me a Stamp.
Courtney's crafting style can be described as "Distressed and Shabby Chic". She is also a Tim Holtz expert. If you love his designs and products then you must check out her blog.

Courtney has great tutorials. One tutorial that caught my eye was her:
 Tattered Florals - A Grunge Flower

This tutorial can be used with any Cricut cart that has a flower design.
The supplies you need for this project are:

•Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations Die - Tattered Florals
•Card Stock
•Prima Clear Stamp - Music Notes
•Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain
•Shimmer Color Spray
•Ranger's Glossy Accents

Please click on over to Courtney's blog here
You will find step by step instructions to complete this project.
Leave a comment and let her know you found her tutorial at Fantabulous Cricut.
I hope you enjoyed today's Thursday Tutorial.
