New Product Blog Hop!
I had so much fun making this layout of my granddaughter. The photos were taken last October when she was only 3 months old. She's now 1 year old! Kids have a way of growing up fast, don't they!
I've used some of our newest products in this layout! Look at that lacy border on the upper right. That's one of the 700 images from our Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge! The message layers were also cut from the cartridge. Not only is it FUN having all these images at my fingertips....it's EASY to cut and add them to my projects! In the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection you get the cartridge with 700 images plus 3 exclusive stamp sets and 3 Dimensional Elements packs that all compliment the images from the cartridge!
I used two stamp sets on the layout. Wicked is the August Stamp of the Month and the other set is called All Hallows Eve. The little bats are 3-D'd...is that a word?...with a bit of foam tape under one wing. The paper is from our new Mischief paper pack and it's SO cool! Great for Halloween but also neutral enough for any time of year! Did you know our new B&T papers are now cardstock weight and have two different patterns on each side? Very versatile!
There is also distressing going on here, too. I sanded the cardstock strips and the frame. To make the frame....after you cut out the center for your photo, fold the corners to get a crease. Lightly sand the folded corner, inside and outside edges of the frame. You can also sand the rest of the frame to complete the distressed look.
During the month of August you can get the Stamp of the Month: Wicked, for only $5 with a $50 purchase! As a special gift this month you can also get a FREE stamp set called A Typeface! See the flyer below for details!
