Once Upon a Princess

Hi Everyone, TGIF!  Today is my last day at Hallmark Ladybugs and I had so much fun sharing my projects with all of you and thank you so much for your sweet wonderful comments.  I hope you had fun too and don't forget you can visit me anytime.  This project was made using the Cricut Cartridge Once Upon a Princess.  Everything is cut a 8 1 /4"  with the exception of cones on top which are cut at 8".  I manually entered the size for each of the pieces.

The Recipes are
Bazzill Paper
Pinkini (for the lighter pink used on the 2 towers)
Fussy (for the darker pink used on the 4 towers and sides)
Ballet (the purple that is used on the cones)
Bouquet (the dark purple that is used inside the castle
Black Tie (the shiny black that is used for the main front of the castle and drawbridge)

First you have to turn any Creative Features Off
Then press the castle
The press Fit to Page and press OK this is to see how big it will cut using a full 12x12 paper.  From there just follow the directions on pages 77 - 85.  

I used 1/4" Scor Tape to seal some of the parts because they are really strong, but for some of them I used a small paint brush and Tacky Glue it's easier to work with for the smaller creases.

I have been dreading "building" this castle. How long did it take you? It looks beautiful!
