From My Cards

Yikes! I suddenly realized that I hadn't yet made a card for DH for our anniversary, so a quick look at my favorites in my SCS gallery was in order. I received my inspiration for this card here.

Colors in this card are Bordering Blue and white. The large heart stamp in the middle and 'forever' are ones I found in the dollar bin at Big Lots, while the stamps in the corners and on the punch are SU. The BG embossing and stamp cuts are from the free die cut/embossing set that came with my first time using a combo set like this, and I'm pleased with the results~ plus, no measuring since the set is made to be used together.

Cricut Vinyl

This photo shows what is now hung on the wall over my Cricut machine. Although Cricut vinyl has been on the market for awhile now, it's my first attempt. The most difficult part was choosing which fonts to use....these are both free fonts that were downloaded at various times, then cut using SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot) software for my Cricut.

It was very easy to use the vinyl....cut using a "2" for pressure, weed the unwanted parts off the mat, cover with transfer tape, lift off mat, use level to place on wall, then remove transfer tape.

Also note that my walls are made of concrete and are not nice and smooth like drywall, but the vinyl worked like a charm anyway! I'll definitely be doing more projects with vinyl in the future.

FINALLY scrapping again...woohoo!

My new scrapbook studio still isn't finished, but enough is enough...I HAVE to scrap! Dug into the various bins and piles that I have everywhere and managed to do this LO of Kelton's costume from last Halloween. Considering how hard I had to root to find what I needed, I'm pleased with the way it turned out.

It feels SO GOOD to be scrapping again!!
