Stamping a Border on a Card

Today's project uses the scallop border stamp image and the cute heart cluster.

Using a clean and simple approach, I wanted to create a card that would work great using one full set of the Close To My Heart color palettes. These cards use the Adventure palette, the samples are created using Raspberry and Willow with a touch of black.



And add a little cute to the envelope


These cards are for an upcoming class where each attendee will create ten cards using one of the Adventure colors. The class kit consists of 2 sheets of one color of Adventure cardstock, 2 sheets of White Daisy cardstock, one pack of black and white dots, and the instructions for cutting and assembling.

Design Space Friday Split Images

I love the Cricut Design Space and my favorite is what I call the Slice and Dice feature. Really it is slicing and welding to create new more personalized images.

This last week I saw a cute Easter split image and thought I would love to try this with flowers and the word Spring.


Also some exciting news, I will be teaching my fav Slice and Dice and Weld at a new event, Crazy Crafters Convention. There is also a Facebook group for this FUN event.

And just for a little sneak peek at how much FUN slicing and dicing can be, here is a video sharing how I split my floral image and added the word 'Spring'. Enjoy!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

My Todd, a loving fur friend, is getting older. It took me a while to see this. He still has the energy of a young pup, however does not show it as often.

I realized his aging when the brown spots on his face began to show streaks of white and he no longer made a mad dash for an adventure in the neighbor whenever the front door opened. 

It is not a bad thing, we seem to be at the same speed now, he and I. He enjoys more time snuggling close on the sofa when it is cold and more time just speeding quiet time lying in front of the craft room door while I work. 

He is a good companion and he listens well to the ramblings of an old woman.

And thank you for reading the reflections of an old woman.
