Cricut Geometric Designs

One of the many things I've really loved about blogging, is the motivation its given me to tackle projects I've been meaning to do for quite sometime.  This is such a small, simple project, and yet it's taken me months to finally do.

Cricut Geometric Home Decor from Blissful Roots

I would never consider my home decor style as modern, and when all the geometric designs started coming out, I wasn't quite into them.  But now, you can't seem to get away from them and they are growing on me.  I think they can fit in any style of home as well.

I was looking through my Cricut cartridges several months ago and noticed all the great geometric designs on the Paper Lace Cartridge.  I'd been wanting a small, simple way to add a touch of geometric design to my room, and this was perfect!



I simply took a solid color of card stock, and cut out one of the designs.  The largest size it would let me do was 11".  It fits nicely on a 12" x 12" piece of card stock with a bit of a boarder (like the one above), or you could cut your 12" x 12" paper down to 11" x 11" have it fit exactly (like the first picture in my post).



The color and texture possibilities are endless!  I love how this glitter looks behind the geometric design. 


I added a flower to the center of several of mine, but it doesn't need anything at all.  In fact, if you clicked on the Cricut link above, you'll see they have a digital home decor bundle to rent, and it's pretty much this exact design on their home page.  They look so great framed!  I'm not sure if I'll frame mine, or maybe put them on a canvas.  I haven't quite finalized the project, but I was so excited with how it was turning out, that I had to share.


Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you found a little something worth your time.
