Creating Again...

My mojo is back and I am up and creating again. It has been a busy month. We spent two weeks purging and getting ready for the All County Yard Sale at the fairgrounds. We did amazing! We found and bought a travel trailer so we are gradually putting in shape and we are selling the tent trailer and that has to be emptied and cleaned. Whew! ... AND I have finished creating May's Cricut Class.

What are you doing in May's Cricut class? I am glad you asked...I am calling it "How to Design Your Own." I love using the Design Studio to make my own templates for projects I teach. Not everyone has the Design Studio, but you can make your own by cutting out different shapes and then taping them together to make a template to use. Using cheap cardstock, the class will make a couple of templates to make unusual cards.

The card at the top of the post is made from scraps of paper left over from the projects we will be doing.

My Annie

Last night my Annie died. She was with us for over 17 years and up until yesterday was healthy. It was quick & we were able to say good bye and hold her one last time.

She was her Daddy's girl and my Love Bug. She will be missed so much.

Good bye Sweet Annie Girl.

April 1st is only April 1st...

I have always disliked "April Fool's Day". Why? I have no idea. Maybe it is because a lot of April Fool jokes are not very nice. So call me a stick in the mud but I would rather not participate.

Anyway...I have been creating more samples for my Chipboard class I want to share...and that's no joke!

I used the Mini Monogram Cricut cartridge to make this mini-album out of chipboard. It actually is a tag, but I used it for an album. I cut the pages the same as the covers, however, I cut off one end. The "T" is cut from the same cartridge out of chipboard and then I embossed it with white embossing powder. The blue border the letter is setting on was also the tag cut from blue. I cut it down and glued it across the front & another for the back.
