Creative Memories Enchanted Power Palette Fun & Games Layout for Bitten by the Bug 2

Hello and welcome to the latest Bitten by the Bug 2's Fun & Games challenge.  I made a scrapbook layout using Cricut Access Chess images and Creative Memories Enchanted papers and stickers.  The photos are from 2018 at a Jamaican resort Jewel Paradise Cove.  The giant chess set was just below our ocean view room.  

I used a current sketch at Sketches in Thyme Week Two sketch:

Here is a close up on the title.  I cut the circle with the Creative Memories Cutting System's extra large circle, inside with the green blade.  I free handed the banners using the paper's own design.

I added fallen chess pieces to each banner.  I added the large cut in the bottom corner in place of the second circle.

A close up of the cuts.  In Cricut Design Space I contoured the images to add a solid background.  I like the white on the background but I had to add at least one black piece.  It is much harder to see the detail outline when it is black on black but it's there!

  5. Great take on the layout design. What fun this chess game is. My husband plays chess, but I just couldn't get it. This layout is fantastic! Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Super cool page! While I don't play myself, my DH is an avid chess player, having gotten back into for the first time in any real way since childhood last year during the lockdowns. As such, I'm always on the prowl for chess themed projects to use as inspiration for some of the cards and such I make for my sweet hubby.

    Thank you for sharing this gem with us.
