September 9, 2012 Monthly Card Class

Shown above are the 2 card styles we will be making for the September 9 class.  One is a split side step card and that is the Happy Fall card.  This card style adds all sorts of dimension to your card and will be fun for the recipient too.  I decorated this card using my Cricut and the following cartridges: Simply Charmed, Paper Doll Dress Up (for the fence only) and County Life.  Oh, yes, you can see I had some fun with the honeycomb paper on this card.   The second card style is a slider card.  We will use our paper trimmer to create the slider window.  I had some of the new K & Co Brenda Walton  fun dimensional Halloween stickers and small mat pad which was perfect for this project.  As always, you can use stamps, stickers, Cricut, Spellbinders, Sizzix, etc to create the images for your card styles.  Hope you are able to join me for this class.
PS There is a wonderful You Tube video on creating the split side step card base on Card Creations by Lorriane's blog.

September 9, 2012 Monthly Cricut Project

As they say, better late than never.  Shown above is the 1 page layout for the September 9 Monthly Project class.  We are using the cartridge, Country Life.  If you are a person who is not a fan of cutesy images than this cartridge is for you.  You can certainly make the animals more whimsical but there are plenty of opportunities to just have them be realistic.  As requested we will also do a glass etching item.  I will post a sample of the etching later but if you look at some of my previous posts there are pictures of the glass etching.  I did use Create a Critter for the clouds and sun in the layout but you are welcome to substitute with the sun from County Life or other cartridge.  I hope you are all having a wonderful summer.
