What day is it???

This week has literally gone by in the blink of an eye!  Craziness!  I meant to get on and post this project I made for a friendly little contest on the Use Your Stash thread, but never did get around to it.  Why is that, you ask?  Hmmmmm...not sure, but maybe has something to do with the fact that the new Circle Cartridge arrived!!!!  YEP!  I received the Letter Envy Cricut Circle Exclusive Cartridge yesterday, so I was a bit preoccupied.  That is my excuse, and I am sticking to it!  ;)  So, back to the project--I recycled an old, clear, magnet-backed frame for the fridge.
Here it is before, during, and after!
 I love the Cricut Craft Room for designing...
 I decided to cut out another frame with a smaller opening as well and ink the inside edge as a sort of double-mat.  You would laugh if you saw my scrapbooks, because I love double matting!  LOL!

 In times like this I always reach for my CM double sided adhesive splits.  You can easily place them on one side of the project, position the next layer EXACTLY where you want it, and then lift a bit at a time to adhere the splits--no guessing and gluing in the wrong place!
 I adhered it to the frame with the same method.
 Finally, I added my bling. 

I spent nothing, and got some big payoff in a new decor item!

Now, back to the Letter Envy cart!!!  I made these initials while I was playing around and getting a feel for the layers on this one.
 The D is my fave out of these!
 Check out the fish hook on the J!
 LOVE this K as well...the little holes cut out really nicely for the most part--was unsure if they would...
 Then I helped P make this tag for a birthday gift...all of the letters are on Letter Envy.  We did it in CCR and welded the letters in Shea.  Big Fun!
I can't wait to use this one more!
