My Little Ninjas and Nevermore

I have had these photos of my littles going to a fun amusement park in Japan where they actually were able to dress up and learn some ninja skills. Even my little Em learned how to use a bow and arrow while dressed in a beautiful traditional kimono.

Using the grays, blacks, and purple (new eggplant, isn't it lovely) were perfect with the photos.

Products used:
Nevermore My Reflections paper packet (X7198B)
Black cardstock (1386)
Slate cardstock (X5930)
Black ink (Z2015)
4"x6" Flip Flap (Z4114)
Documenting Moments (D1647) stamp set

The layout is from the Make It From Your Heart Volume 1 pattern 1. The flow of the photos across the page highlighted the day full of swords, karate, and more. The title is broken into two sections, one curved over the other. The title was created in the Cricut Design Space using a circle to line up the letters. Below are some cool tips I learned playing with it.

Using a 4" x 6" flip flap was perfect for the double matting.

Using the National Stamping Month Hello Life Scrapbook stamp set tab was the perfect handle for opening and closing the flip flap.

The flip flap has not been attached as the layout must be in the page protector so the flip flap may be attached on the outside of the page protector.

More photos and journaling opportunities are found under the flip flap.

Bring in a circle and size it to the preferred size.  Type in your title and click on the isolate letters to ungroup them -
Curve the letters around the circle and attach.

Click on the eye icon to hide the circle and now your title will cut curved - this would be great for vinyl so you can keep it curved onto the transfer paper. I used it to help keep my curve when I placed the letters on the layout.

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…

A friend shared her version of a rocker card and I fell in love. A rocker card starts with circles. The base 5 1/2" circle cut from New England Ivy cardstock. A second 5" circle is cut from pattern paper, here I am using the New England Ivy pattern paper. 

The next pieces are the circles creating a place for the sentiment and embellishments. Here I changed it up a little. The original circles would be 3 3/4" cut from White Daisy covered by a 3 1/2" circle cut from the Beary Christmas poinsettia pattern paper. 
My version…
