Love Letter Layout

Hi Bloggers,

I was recently looking through some of my old scrapbooking "stash" and came across a few "Class-in-a-bag" kits. So I decided to have a play with one.

I changed things around a little bit - I turned the layout sideways and then the photo mat sideways (as I wanted to use a landscape photo) - and this is what I came up with:

I followed the instructions for the envelope, then altered it, adding ink and alphabet stamps.

I distressed the edges of the papers using a tool and plenty of ink. I also pierced holes along the edges, threading floss through some to add stitching.

More stitching was added to the photo mat and I cut a triangle from patterned paper, placing it on the corner of the background card.
I cut individual letters from the pattrned paper and stuck them randomly over the background card.

I used a metal ribbon slider from my stash with strips of the card. I just love metal embellishments!

I enjoyed playing with this kit and will be trying more in the future.

Hope you like it.
Thanks for stopping by.

Cricut Class

Hi Bloggers,

Now that my class is over I thought I'd show you the cards that I designed for the day.

The first card measures 8" x 8" and uses the standard cartridges that come with the Expression machine.

I used a number of the modes and functions of the Expression to make the card.
Fit to page......
 Fit to Length....
Cartridge Creative features.....
Flip and Repeat Last......
And for those with a Create machine.......
An 8" x 8" card using Center Point, Real Dial Size, Flip, Repeat Last and Auto Fill.

Hope you like them.
Thanks for stopping by.
