CWC Cricut Showcase: Elegant Edges

JME Design Team project, CLICK HERE!

Hello and welcome!!  Today, I am sharing with you projects from one of my favorite cartridges: Elegant Edges!  I love this cartridge because it is so versatile.   The features make your ideas limitless, just use your imagination!

I love to use Elegant Edges for the border feature, which acts just like a border punch. You get so many varieties without having to purchase a different punch for each project. The scallop border punch in this card was created with elegant Edges.  This is a great feature!

I also used the “postage stamp” oblong feature for the backgrounds on this card. 

The “Oblong Frame” feature adds a great touch to any card.  This frame makes the card look like it has depth, dimension and breaks up the paper. 

Finally, my most favorite, favorite feature is the “Shadow”.    This feature allows me to make great shape cards.   There are so many great shapes and the “shaped” card making potential is endless!!  I still have some great ideas I want to try, so be on the lookout!

So take the plunge and discover all that Elegant Edges has to offer. 

For my most recent project, I used the oblong feature.  I was going to use my spellbinder but I had too many, to do them one at a time.   Because I needed so many cutouts,  I decided to use Elegant Edges.  I was able to get the same effect but easier to make.  I used the scallop shape for these beautiful table number settings. 

JME Design Team Day

It is National Bible week and Challenge #61, the theme is "Bible Verse or Quote". I selected Psalms 119, where it speaks about the sweetness of God's words.  The digi image and scripture are from PaperCraftingWorld.  The scalloped edge is from the border feature of Elegant Edges.

Hello, it is Monday and time for JME Creations Design Team Day!   Thanks so much to everyone that has been stopping by, I so enjoy reading your kind words!

The challenge today was to create a "Thank You" project.  I needed a Thank You card for a guy that loves music.  I had such a mental block, until I remembered the musical note letter feature on the Hannah Montana cartridge.  It has been sitting for quite awhile, but I finally got to it:)   Thanks for stopping by!  Please go and check out all the other talented ladies projects!
