Fall Banner Using Anna Griffin Monograms and Rosettes with Cricut

Hi all, 
Here I am sharing my latest make with my Cricut Explore Air 2, and my favorite
Fall Season Color combination!

I used an old DCWV I had reserved for a special occasion...and we all know how that story ends!
The paper has my favorite combination of black, white, yellows, greens, silver, and glitter!
To make it my own, I decided to use gold cardstock to also add little bees throughout.  I love to decorate with bees, and the gold color was perfect with the yellow hues. I also added silver leaves as a beautiful accent on each banner.




The Rosette and Large Doily are from Anna's Sophisticated Soiree. The letters and leaves are from Anna's Monograms, all available in Cricut Design Space.

Each letter is edged with Gold Glitter, applied with my Nuvo Glitter pen, and behind them, I used silver Cricut paper that I cut intricate doilies with. The paper is shimmery, and very elegant! Each Rosette measures 11.75", and holding it up is mesh ribbon interlaced with gold. I am so very happy with the result, and have a video showing you the process of making the rosettes as well as what to anticipate when making them! 
Enjoy-

Be inspired, Be Blessed- Raquel

Please enjoy this video, I apologize in advance for the abrupt editing, and I appreciate your feedback. I also should have mentioned that I used the fast-cut feature for some of the die cutting, and made this card very quickly. Overall, I am very pleased! Be blessed!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
