Fantabulous Friday -- Preserves

Happy Friday Everyone!! I am so glad it's Friday, but of course, I always am :) This weekend I actually have lunch plans with some friends. We've been talking about getting together all summer and we finally are. We have been friends since our first-born kids were 1 year old--now they are starting high school in 3 weeks--Unbelievable!!    I hope you all have some fun plans too.
Today, I thought I would highlight the Preserves Cartridge since our them this week is Melon Time. I just love this cartridge and have made quite a few things with it! And another thing I love is that it has matching Cuttlebug Companion Folders! So much fun :)

The creative features on this cartridge are:
Layer, Word, Card, Label, Lid and Tag

Here's a card I made using one of the Cuttlebug folders. I really love how well the embossing shows! And the layering is so easy to do with this cartridge.

Even this grape cut was not hard to layer. It is very clear how to assemble the cuts.

Here's a cut with the lid button.  If you can/jar things, this is the button to make a cute lid.  I don't do that, but this could also work on a scrap page or card even!

This cut is the label feature.  I love this one, I left the top curve without adhesive and I think I could fit a gift card in there!  (the stickles were still a bit wet when I took this picture)

Now this is my favorite!  It's the tag feature and I used this cute red dotted paper for the flower and tag topper.  All these were cut from the Peach button.  I think I'll need to use this cartridge for tags this year!

I just had to show you two more cards I had made.  This first one I embossed and used an Action Wobble on it.  And I just love this Imaginisce paper too.

This cherry card was the very 1st one I made with Preserves.  I love the color combo on this one!

Notice that I did not show you a watermelon.  I think we, as a design team, covered that pretty well on Monday--LOL!  My card on Monday was from Preserves already :)

Now that you've seen all these fruit/melon ideas, make your own project (use a Cricut cut!) and enter it before the end of the day Sunday for your chance to win this week!

Have a Fantabulous weekend :)
