It's time for another Challenge Me Monday over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. This weeks challenge is to make a project from a "neglected cartridge". Any cartridge you haven't used in 6+ months. Well, this was truly a challenge for me because I don't have a cart that I have not used in 6+ months. I use and LOVE all my carts. I currently only have 13 cartridges, 7 of which I have received since Christmas. :) But I chose to use the cartridge I have used the least over the past 6+ months which is George & Basic Shapes. 
Marianne from Paper or Fabric Crafter shared this Easel Card and Gift Box on her blog not that long ago and I knew I wanted to give it a try. (She shared the link for the tutorial how to make this here.)  Their projects measured roughly 6"x6" and I wracked my brain for 3 days figuring out how/if I could make it 4"x4" and I did. Here's how it turned out:

 Isn't it pretty? I love how it turned out. Thank you Marianne for the inspiration. 
 Project details/ingredients:
Box Base: Coredinations card stock & DCWV patterned paper
Cuts: Heart & Tag from George & Basic Shapes
Card Base: Off white card from a card/envelope set from Big Lots
Stamp/Sentiment: From the new stamp line from  40:31 Creations (check them out).

Now, it's your turn. What cartridge have you neglected? What cartridge has been sitting in the clamshell since you bought it? (Send them to me :) Crack them carts out and hop on over to FCCB and submit your projects. I cannot wait to see what you've been neglecting. 

Keep Kreating,

OMG, this is beautiful!! It's been a long couple of days waiting to see it and it sure was worth the wait. Hey that's my favorite candy in the drawer NOT candles. LOL Please share your measurements. Thank you for the shout out and I am that I helped to inspire you. Again, it's beautiful and you did a great job. Thank you for sharing.
