Episode 128: Shirt to Background Paper

Hi Crafters! Today Glora and I are doing our cut challenge w/ each other. What this means is that we choose a cut and we both make a project using that cut. This month it was Glora's turn to choose.  She chose the Hawaiian shirt from the Pack Your Bags Cricut cartridge.  I was trying to figure out how best to use this cut.  I couldn't figure out a way to use it on a card that I would use.  Then I decided to enlarge it and make it into background paper!  I show how I put this together in the video.

Here is a pink version:

And this is what I did on the inside
Sorry the pics are bleh.  I had to use my phone and at night.  Not the best of circumstances.  lol  Here is a little video showing how I made this card:

Be sure to go to Glora's blog to see what she did w/ this cut!  :)

Happy Mother's Day!

Hello Crafters! I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. Mine was nice and relaxing, hung out with the family. Then my two dogs ate a whole large bag of Peanut M&M's. It was a gift to my mom from my brother. I'm sure I'll be up tonight with some sick dogs. Fingers crossed it's not too bad.

This is the card that I made for my mom.  I made a shape card based off the main front image.  What I did was use the shadow cut of that image and joined it together to make the shape card.  I then cut out the original cut w/ all of the inside cuts hid to make it a solid cut.  That is the white cut on the card.  I cut out the main image in green and another one in purple.  Then I cut out just the flower by hand from the purple cut.  Hopefully that made some sense.  I should have made a video on it but I made it pretty quickly.  :)

Have a great week and Thanks for stopping by!  :)
