Project for my son’s room

I have taken on the remodel of my 7 year old son’s room. It has been a blast! Once we picked the paint color that is. We are going with a 50’s surfer theme. Bamboo shade for the window, beads for the closet doors, some tin signs. It’s really coming together. I made this wall hanging with Life’s a beach cartridge. I really like the cartridge except there is no blackout or shadow option. I had to do some tricking with my shark because the one thy had was just too cutsie. I cut the shark and then cut the layer and used the inside of the layer over the cutout. I used a very tiny black dot for the eye and voila! he  looked like a scary shark. Sometimes you just have to think outside the box. I used random pattern paper that I thought were colors and patterns that went with the room. Glued them to 6x6 chip board squares, punched holes, decorated with random beachy things, and tied it all together with jute. I really would love some feed back on it! Thanks

Vinyl Everything!

Couldn’t just give my nephew a plain old cd/stereo for his 7th birthday. I had to vinyl it up! I used Life’s a Beach for the scull and All Mixed Up for his name.

2nd recipe for exchange

I really love using the Cricut markers. It was tricky to cut out so many at the same time but I got it.  I was able to use the Quantity feature. Major hint is to not remove the mat after drawing the object. Just hit load paper and insert the blade and then cut. I used the mouse from Animal Kingdom. First “cut” using the marker and regular image. Hit load paper to get to the beginning again then with blade in cut out the image with the blackout feature. Please feel free to ask questions if you have any.


2nd card for exchange

I used my favorite feature on the Cricut again. Center Point! After printing out the sentiment I load the page into the Cricut and position the blade over the center. You may have to work with the sizing a bit. I could have written this a bit different to fill the space more, but am very happy with how it turned out. The sentiment and it’s background are the same cut from Accent Essentials and the houses and Merry Christmas are cut from Jubilee. The white mat is embossed with Cuttlebug folder Script. Hope you like it too!

Card for exchange

This time my group also chose to include some Christmas cards for our exchange. I love this little saying and couldn't help but use it in my first card.The snowflake is cut from Accent Essentials which I think is really my favorite cartridge in my collection. I always go back to it.I used a Stampin Up tiny snowflake stamp with versa mark and embossed it in silver as I did with the sentiment also. I love embossing especially for Christmas cards.


For recipe exchange

I’m in love with Stickles!!! The red on this apple looked like Dorothy's shoes! Love how this recipe turned out. The apple was cut from Designer’s Calendar. Feel free to use this “food” recipe. So easy and YUMMY!

ink debossing with the cuttlebug

WOW! I have 23 followers! That blows me away. I just love this world of scrapbookers/cardmakers sharing ideas and the love of paper crafting! I hope I keep you all interested.

For today I’ve been dying to try embossing with ink on the cuttlebug. After watching a video from Jen, I was brave enough to try it. Please report back if you give it a try too. I’m off to do a pumpkin and will post a picture later. Be honest of what you think. This is only my second video. Haven’t quite got it down yet. I’ll practice. Hugs, Heidi
