Celebrating 2012 with Colette

I don't know about YOU- but I am always thrilled to start a NEW year!  Not sure if it's the RESOLUTIONS, or a fresh page on the calendar- or maybe cleaning up the clutter from the busy holidays, BUT I love a brand new YEAR!  It always energizes me!!
The Teresa Collins  "Sophisticated" cartridge has gotten  alot of use at my house, along with the "Black and White" cartridge I use on my Cricut Imagine!  I have had this CLOCK spotted on the cartridge and knew I would be using it in Honor of the NEW Year.   I had fun making my daughter Jensen a New Years Eve party hat with the 2 cartidges.

I first used the Teresa Collins "Black and White" cart to print out the awesome clocks on the Blue Bazzill cardstock.  I made a cone- shaped party hat and glued it together in the back with Hot glue.  Next I used
"Sophisticated" to cut out the BIG clock with Silver Glitter paper in the Teresa Collins "Haunted Hallows" line.  This clock measures 5 inches tall.  The numbers  were cut from black cardstock and this cartridge makes this super easy to make.

I added some ribbon to the top of the clock and also a strip of Donna's Gems at the bottom edge. (Saved one gem for the middle of the clock.).  I added some tinsel trim and it is a darling hat!
Here's the layout I made with Jensen wearing the Hat on New Year's eve. I was happy to get this photo to a pretty good black and white- since the party had very dim lighting-- but it shows how cute it turned out.

This layout was made with more "Haunted Hallows" glitter paper and black cardstock for the clock.
The blue clocks were leftovers from making my hat so I used them to add dimension and color to the layout.

MY paper base for the layout is Teresa Collins "Carolina Breeze" Gentry paper.  The sticker "making memories" came from this line also.

I also loved using the glitter paper to cut the numbers.  Another wonderful thing included in the cartridge-- numbers and an alphabet so there are lots of variety of components to use.

I wish everyone a fantastic and FRESH new year-- and many blessings in 2012!!
