Another Christmas Page
Precious little pumpkin, he is. I started work on his 8x8 baby album today but haven't gotten a page fully completed yet. I took a break from that to do this page. The lettering proved to be the biggest time eater... I cut it on the Cricut and then decided that I wanted a shadow cut as well... ran everything through the Xyron sticker maker and then mounted the maroon letters onto the shadow cuts. The frames and photos are also cut on the cricut. The background paper and patterned paper are from Rob and Bob studios, I want to say the fall slab (slab IX?) The maroon and burnt orange cardstock are Paper Company. The date tag was made with layers of the card stock and the patterned scroll paper, date printed out with the design runner. I had a really good time with this one... and I think that in future, when doing alphabet cut outs, I'm going to try running the paper through the Xyron first, then cutting the alphabets. I have not gotten anything Mother's Day made for my shop at www.shophandmade.com and I have two thank you notes to get made this week, as well as a mother's day card for my own Mom. I have not made a final selection on the goodie giveaway, but since I also still see no comments, I guess I don't have to panic about getting that done right quickly. So it might end up that it's really easy to win this! I'm heading back to the craft room to clean up from this project and perhaps get started on another.
