Making cards with my Cricut

I am totally hooked on my Cricut! I joined a card swap where we had to use our Cricut to make 3 cards. I only have the “Stretch Your Imagination” image cartridge, but I’ve found the cartridge most versatile.

Thanks for dropping by!

“All the flowers of all the tomorrows…” ATC

“All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today” (Indian proverb) – Quote ATC

I don’t have any photos to show for the Scrapbook Convention yet, so I thought I’d show you an ATC I made a while back but never posted.

I’ve never made anything that’s so… yellow, LOL! It’s very happy and sunny and bright, isn’t it? This is 100% outside my crafting comfort zone, so I don’t know how this happened, but luckily it looks great and that’s all that matters in the end, right? It was made for the “Stamping with Bleach” swap on Swap-bot, but if you’re wondering where those stamped images are… well, they’re not 🙂  I went through many (ruined) papers and card stock, half my stamp collection and half a bottle of bleach before just giving up on trying to stamp anything. In the end I used an ear-bud to ‘paint’ some daisies with the bleach.

This is what I’ve learned:

  1. There’s a good reason why they invented ink – if we were suppose to stamp with bleach, Ranger would have been out of business by now.
  2. If all else fails, blame the bleach! 😛

Have a great week, and thanks for looking!!
