The challenge was to scrap a picture/about yourself. This is me with my daughter from 2 falls ago and a letter she wrote me for Mothers Day. It came together easily using all My Mind's Eye products - from the "laundry line" collection.
I signed up through our consultant bulletin board to participate in a swap featuring the paper packs in the Autumn and Winter 2011 Idea Book. Randomly, I was chosen to work with Sonoma for my cards (4x4, 8x3.5, standard and 6x6) and Mischief for my tags and altered item which was a small notebook. I can't wait to see what I get back!
These are the tags that I cut using our new Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge - super easy! I used a little flower punch and embellished it with a 'opaque'. The stamp set I used was "Harvest Happiness'.
These little notebooks are just from the Dollar Store and they didn't turn out how I pictured them but I like them anyways!
These are the 8x3.5 cards and I just used some grosgrain ribbon and some Opaques - they are so easy to use as they are self-adhesive and they just add a nice touch to any project!
The scallop border on this card is actually cut off of our new 6x6 kraft cards and I used a 'second-generation stamping technique' with the flur de lise which is from a older stamp set called 'Legendary Moments'.
My 4x4 cards turned out so cute! I am loving the new "Remarkable Wreath' stamp set that I used - it is so versatile!
My 6x6 cards are the new kraft ones (minus the scallop closure). This is a great addition to our cards - very economical and kraft is 'the new black'! The 3-D flowers are also cut with our new cricut cartridge - you need this cartridge if you have a Cricut - trust me! Thanks for looking!
Check out the chance to win *THREE* *FREE* stamp sets from the very talented Kim Hughes at Paper Smooches. I just opened up the first sets that I had bought in the summer and made some fun cards - forgot to take a picture of them before I sent them away for a swap that I was in :( Maybe someone in the swap will send me one in the mail!!!!
But anyways - the sneek peeks on the DT's blogs are SUPER CUTE! So hop on over!
They can't sell them anymore???? What's up???? I just logged on because I am looking to upgrade to a Cricut expression or Cricut create - I just realized, with my new Art Philosophy Cartridge from CTMH, that my 'little' cricut doesn't cut anything smaller than 1" - the other ones go down to 0.25" and up from there in increments of 0.25". I thought they just went bigger. There are lots of options with this cartridge and the coordinating stamp sets for smaller items and I want to access them all!!! So if not Oh My Crafts - then where???????
