I made this beautiful glittery card during a crop hosted by Dana Edwards. Her blog is: http://blog.artsoulandscissors.com/. You cut various shapes out of double sided tape with a peel and arrange them on a card. You determine what shapes you want in which colors. You start with the shape that you want to color with the darkest glitter and you take the peel off the tape of only that item and pour glitter on the card. This way, the other elements are protected. You continue this method until all of the shapes are colored to your liking.
Here is the Mother's Day card that I made for my stepmom. I think it turned out really cute.
I printed the background paper with the little Russian dolls from my Cricut Imagine All Wrapped Up cartridge. I also used a card shape from this cartridge, but instead of printing it, cut it out yellow paper.
Here's a peek from the side. It's popped up using foam dots:
Here is a simple layout that I made using five photos:
The title is from the Mini Monograms Cricut Cartridge. I spiced it up with some brads in each of the corners:
I raised the title on foam pop dots:
I made these bandaids through a dry embossing technique with a light box, stylus and brass template. The Lasting Impressions brass templates are really amazing. I embossed this on cardstock with a white core and used sandpaper to show the outlines:
Happy Friday! I made a layout last night using my new Teresa Collins "Everyday Moments" paper collection. How I love that woman. She has the most elegant designs...perfect for Paris <3. These photos were taken at the Musée de l'Orangerie. It was so amazing seeing Picasso, Renoir and Monet paintings up close that I had only previously viewed in books. Here is a close up of the first page:
Here is a close up of the second page. The stamp with the journaling block is from Close to My Heart. Aren't the paintings breathtaking? I'm so happy they photographed well. Now I can remember them forever.
This adorable hot chocolate cup is from the Cricut Winter Frolic cartridge. I added some white details using my gel pen. I used three pieces of twine for the bow. The hot cocoa card is from October Afternoon.
The yellow paper is from the Bazzil Basics Swiss Dots Collection. The velvet roses are from Making Memories. I wish I had more of those! They don't make them anymore and I was saving them for a special page.
Oh these flowers were so fun to make! Cosmo Cricket has little adhesive circles called "Gluebers" and you take ribbon (these are from My Mind's Eye, Stella Rose) and place it in a circular pattern. The instructions say that a kid can make them. It's true. No sewing. It seriously took less than a minute to put these together. I highly recommend adding Gluebers to your adhesive collection. I placed a brad in the center of the flowers.
I had to ask the boy how to say " Hot Chocolate and Art" in French. He helped me with the title. :)
This Cricut Gypy Font has to be one of my favorites. You receive it when you buy a Gypsy. I use it so much.
It has been awhile since I've written a post. I actually have a lot of pages to post but haven't photographed them. I've also been traveling a ton. I'm trying to finish this during my lunch break. This girly layout was created using the Teresa Collins Posh Collection. I love my Paris shopping photos! Here's a peek at the whole layout:
