I've had two friends in the past couple of weeks who became grandmothers to baby girls. Exciting times for me as some of my friends are also entering the era of grandmotherhood! Congratulations, Debbie and Nancy!
I recently purchased the book All Occasion Cards for Cricut through Blitsy which, by the way, is a FABULOUS site for discounted products for the crafter....lots of great scrapbooking and cardmaking stuff there at wonderful prices.
Anyway, this card was in the book and I made my version with Martha Stewart girly papers I had gotten on clearance at Michael's before my own grandbaby girl was born. I used Graphically Speaking (my friend, Deb Wing used to emphatically refer to this cartridge as "THE BEST EVER" and she would state it complete with wonderful hand gestures) and Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridges which, DRUM ROLL PLEASE, are two more cartridges I can knock off my personal challenge to make something with every Cricut cartridge I own. I love that...two birds with one stone...two cartridges with one card! :)
Here's the card for the cutie patootie baby:
This angled closeup shows the glitter on the stars which was a huge mess to work with! LOL!!!
Sometimes angled photos which have become so popular give me vertigo. Seriously. Especially when there are people in them! Just thinking about it makes me feel queasy.... (not really...)
This was simple to do other than the mess with the glitter (!)...all the cuts and sizes are in the book and I just followed it with my own papers. It actually worked up pretty quickly. For me quick means under 3 hours! Haha!
Does anyone out there want to come reorganize my scrapbook room for me? It's getting way out of control!!!
Happy Crafting and for me that also means Happy GET YOURSELF IN YOUR ROOM AND CLEAN IT UP BEFORE YOU START ANOTHER PROJECT OR BUY ONE MORE THING!
(hmmmm....wonder if my Paper Trey Ink order will be here by tomorrow?)
