Victory Cards and More!

Once I complete my layouts, I always have a pile of scraps leftover...and waste not, want not!  So I dug up some of these extra acrylic pieces left over from a Mix n Mingle Project (Z1334) and created little Pride Plaques for my boys!

If you haven't already gotten it, can I just say how FABULOUS our Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge is?  CTMH has made so many fabulous new products that coordinate with the shapes on the cartridge AND, you can even look back at some of our "pre-Cricut" products and find they match as well!  Just like the Mix N Mingle pieces below, I was able to find shapes to match and cut them on the Cricut...add a little glue, and wallah, I have a finished project!
 The cork shapes, "Local Legend" and "Triumph" are part of our Tough Tags (Z1692) collection, self-adhesive and ready to go!  I kept a small piece of the backing on the left side of the tag since I had it hanging over the side, that way "sticky" isn't exposed.  Another option is to dust it with baby powder to get rid of the exposed sticky!

Now for the cards...quick and easy!  I used our new Durables Studs Square Assortment (Z1705) which includes 2 sizes in both pewter and antiqued gold, for only $3.95!!  Also, some of our twine and the Evergreen Cork Shapes (Z1719) to add a little texture.  Just stamp right on them and they're ready to go!!!

The leather accent circle is also from our Tough Tags collection!  So many cool pieces!!

Gotta play with the Cricut a little more, so created this little box and card, cut direct from the cricut then lightly embellish!  These are the last 2 of the Tough Tag shapes (so 5 of the 6 on this post and the 6th one was used on the top of the Card Box in my previous post).

Another Binder Clip, to close the treat box, a little twine and a zip strip!  All remnants just waiting to be used...I love coming up with cute things out of scraps!!
