Just wanted to wish everyone a Safe and Happy New Year. I also wanted to let you know about the celebration going on over at http://treasurebookcreations.com/ . It starts at 7:00 tonight and is going to be an entire evening of fun, games, and giveaways. You need to have a twitter account to join in. Twitter only takes a minute or less to join so don't let that stop you. We may go out for a little while, but I hope to get in on some of the fun. Happy New Year!!!
Things that are not on the video: 1. Leave etching cream on at least 45 minutes. ( Edit.....see tip from LorraineB in comments. It sounds like if you get a good thick coat of cream on your design, you only have to leave it about 15 minutes). Just play with it and see what works for you. 2. Etching cream will not wipe off. Wash cream off under running water. 3. The brown on my jar was done with Elmer's fine tip painter pens.
Cricut cartridges used: PSB, PDDU, & MTG. Cartridge abbreviation list can be found on the left hand side of my blog.
Be sure to watch both videos part 1 & 2 to see project from start to finish.
Just for fun here are a few pics of my kids getting ready for Christmas. May you all have a happy & blessed holiday season.
Kara making truffles & bon bons
So this is why they taste so good. You have to sing into the spatula when making them. : ) If she only knew I posted this pic for all to see, LOL!!!!
Kara & Brent getting ready for Christmas Eve dinner. We had a quite evening at home this year and it was nice. It's very cold and windy here and a good night to stay in.
Brent patiently waiting to dig in. : )
Enjoying the Christmas tree and waiting for Santa. Ok, Santa doesn't come to our house anymore, but it sounded good. ; ) Until this year I would get up & fill the kids stockings, but now I just fill them before we go to bed, LOL! Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!!!
Hi Everyone! I just had to take a minute and check in. I promise I've not deserted my blog completely! : ) As with most of you this is a very busy and crazy time of year. Trying to keep up with work, family, and getting ready for Christmas hasn't left much time for anything else. I will have new videos, but it may be after the holidays. I still plan to show you how to make a shape album and bind it with the Your Story machine. I also promise to show you how to create "snow" on your projects as well as a couple other fun things. Until then may your holiday season be filled with happiness. Merry Christmas!
Ok, as promised here are lots of pictures and a video of my Thanksgiving album I made for the swap. I accidentally deleted the full view pic of the album, but you can scroll down a few post and see it. I also forgot to write down all the Cricut cartridges I used and am going to list them from memory, LOL! Let me know if you think I missed any. : ) For the full name of the cartridge see the abbreviation list on the left hand side of my blog.
G&BS, FF, Christmas, DC, SYI, VMT, MC, FMK, SB & MM. Album created in Design Studio.
Here is a quick preview of my Gingerbread Moments Album that I entered in the contest. You can see all entries at http://www.cricut.com/yourstory/default.aspx There were lots of amazing projects! Congratulations to the winners!!
I will post more details soon. I plan to do a video tutorial and show you how to do the "snow"as well as how to use the Your Story with your own album covers. This album cover is the gingerbread house from the My Community cartridge. Click pics to enlarge.
