I have had these old family wedding pictures for a long time, just crying out for a new home on some beautiful My Mind’s Eye patterned papers! I cut the frame and frame shadows from the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge and inked the edges with Ranger tea dye distress ink. I added strips of glitter paper here and there to match the glitter on the paper as well as glitter hearts at each corner of the photos. Now I need to find out the correct dates and places for each of these weddings and add that information to the journaling blocks. I think this is a much better way to display these special pictures!
Be awesome today! Laurie
Welcome to My Cricut Craft Room’s All Autumn Ideas Blog Hop….You will find many WONDERFUL Autumn ideas along this hop today… Enjoy!
Today I am sharing an Autumn project using cuts from the Artbooking cartridge by Close To My Heart. I also used CTMH cardstock in beautiful fall colors–Terra Cotta, Barn Red, Honey, Olive, Chocolate and Saddle on a background of Glacier for the blue sky. I was able to manipulate the image in Cricut Craft Room using Hide/Contour to create the different colored layers. It took a bit of trial and error, but much easier than cutting and pasting paper scraps. I like that the several paper layers gives the tree some dimension. I also used Versamark and clear embossing powder to create the subtle leaf shapes on the blue cardstock and texture to the tree trunk.
Thanks for hopping along today! Laurie
Does anyone else have a thing for Washi tape? You just gotta love those bright colors and designs, especially when you find them at a big discount online–multiple times!! But now that you have dozens of rolls and you’ve figured out a cute way to store them, what do you actually do with them?
Today I’m sharing a couple of card ideas using Washi tape. For the first card, I chose some tapes with coordinating colors and simply applied them side by side to a piece of white cardstock. This created a colorful background for the black overlay that I cut from the Cricut Artbooking cartridge by Close To My Heart. I embellished the card with a stamped sentiment and a black flower with pink bling in the center.
The second card uses washi tape in two different ways. Like the first card, I created a striped background by applying washi tape to a piece of cardstock. This made a nice base for the word “Birthday” which I spelled out using green chipboard letters from Above Rubies Studio. The second use of washi tape was to create the flags. I simply folded the washi tape around some flat balsa wood pieces (toothpicks would work too), trimmed them to look flag-like and spelled out “Happy” with letters from my stash.
Have a wonderful Wednesday (and do something crafty)!!
