A Card and stuff!

Good Afternoon! Okay so I have to start by saying I AM THRILLED that the sun is finally shining here in Alaska! Seems like Spring is FINALLY here! About time! I was about to go nuts!! LOL!

Created this card a few days ago based on the Sketch Challenge on the Club Ruby blog from April 5th.

Really like how it turned out! And last night I found out that I was chosen to be on the Club Ruby Design Team for their kit club! So excited about that! Hopefully I'll be on top of things and get this blog going! But as of now I totally get the Worst blogger ever award since I can't seem to keep it going! LOL!! But I have the desire. And baby is getting older so he's able to keep himself entertained a bit longer! So that's good!

Anyway - here is an article I had in the March Newsletter I wanted to share.
Based on using your Cricut Cartridges!

Using your Die Cut Machine for fun titles 

So I'm sure most of us have a diecut machine just sitting there collecting dust. It's time to dust that puppy off and use it on your next layout! I went to a crop this weekend and I was determined to use my Cricut on every layout I used! And I did! I used it for all of my titles! I really enjoyed the process! Here are a few fun ways to make titles using your diecut machine! 
For this layout I cut out my title "eleven" using the Sesame Street Font Cartridge - using fab papers from the March Trio! I then put just a bit of glue on the back making it "removable". I placed it on my layout where I wanted it, and then using a white pen I colored around it. I then removed the title from the layout and added some pop-dots and Voila! a fun 3dimensional title! It was quick and super simple to complete.  

For the title "The Perfect Pair" I used the Cricut Cartridge "Sweethearts". I cut it out and then using my white pen decorated it up! Then using pop-dots once again I added it to my layout. Cutting a gap in my chipboard border to make room for it. Love how it turned out!

For the title "It's a height thing" -  I just wanted to point out that you can use your shapes as a base for your title - this oval is from the "George and Basic Shapes" Cricut Cartridge. I used thickers from the Trio kit and an arrow cut from the "Graphically Speaking" cartridge to create my title art.
