I know it’s been a few days since I’ve posted anything here but it’s not because I’ve not been busy. I’ve been very busy.
First of all I stopped everything yesterday to make my husband a card for his birthday and I think it turned out OK despite a couple of booboos that I had to cover up. He liked it any way. I was inspired by the Cuttlebug Spot challenge to use the hot. I’d been turning and turning my brain to come up with an idea for Jim’s card. The minute I read Nilda’s post on the Cricut messageboard I knew exactly what I was going to do. Executing it was another thing. My inspirations don’t always turn out how I see them in my head, but I made a couple of adjustments and it was acceptable. So with out further delay, here it is.
I used the Pooh font and the flames from Cars. I turned the flames right side up varied the sizes and welded them with my Design Studio. I used some Stickles to make them look more like fire and popped them away from the body of the card. The OOH La La is a studio G stamp and the border around the round element is a Perfectly Clear stamp. He loved it.
On with Kassidy’s album which I’ve been plodding away at. Here’s what I’ve accomplished so far and I hope to almost finish it except for little details tonight.
These two page are pretty simple. Really I’ve done the whole album with little more than the DCWV Baby Girl stack, cardstock, my Cricut and the carts I have and a few very basic embellishments—Stickles, buttons, ribbon, and some jewels.
This layout will fall during the months of October and so despite it being a baby layout I tried to add a bit of fall so that my niece can use it to record Kassidy’s 1st Halloween and Thanksgiving. I used my Martha Stewart Threading Water punch on this page and the rest is my Cricut.
These layouts will fall during Kassidy’s 1st Christmas and are the only layouts I used any other embellishments that I didn’t create myself. These are Jolee’s that I had in my stash.
Again, I tried to make pages according to the holiday that falls in that month. Valentines Day will give Melissa a chance to use photos that follow that theme.
I didn’t really have a theme for this but in March everyone is looking forward to spring so I tried to make a bright, cheerful layout.
