Here it is: New Year's Eve! Another year has ended. My main resolution for 2009 is to shed the old and move forward with the good. If it's not something that ads to me becoming a better person, a better mom, a better teacher...then it's going to be left in the dust. If that means losing pounds, or losing a website business or blog...so be it. I am ready for some change again. I have to mix things up a bit. Of course, this blog isn't going anywhere...but I am meaning to add more to it as the days and month of 2009 progress.
One of the things I realized is that I haven't been using my creative side much these days. My camera as well as my scrapbook supplies have been collecting dust! This week I have been dusting both off.
So first I am going to post some Thank you cards I made quickly and very inexpensively I might add! Some winter...Sno-kane...photos will follow shortly as well!
The striped card is from the .60 cent bin at Michaels. I bought about 6 packs of them. They are called Perfectly Posh. 8 cards and envelopes in a pack...what a steal! I used my Cricut to cut the Thanks and mounted it on CTMH chocolate cardstock. Tied off a pink ribbon and a pink glittery heart that I bought on clearance somewhere...and ta da... It's done!
My husband didn't get the T U on the card. my texting kids did though! LOL! These were also cut on the Cricut and mounted on CTMH chocolate cardstock. A little fiber and....Simple!
o.k. this one was wicked simple. Just attach three blue chip board letters and done! When I run out of the chip board ones that match, I'm just going to cut them out with my Cricut.
A little sanding on the cardstock letters and it adds a softer contrast around the edges. Another glittery pink heart and this one is good to go!
This is what my first Thank You card is going to be written for:
My fun Christmas toy...the Cricut Design Studio. It is software that loads onto my laptop. Now my laptop can communicate with my Cricut and I can mix designs from the various cartridges onto a template on my computer then lay it all out and hit cut! No more guessing about size and will it fit! What fun! I am putting together some fun calendars this week with it. I'll be sure to take pictures and share!
