I have a new love in my life - the new Cricut cartridge called Elegant Edges. Those of you who are cardmakers and Cricut owners, this cartridge is a must. It is crammed with nestability type shapes - ranging from simple scallop ovals, circles and squares, to label type cuts. Then there are the borders, it's like having masses and masses of border punches at your fingertips. One of the features I couldn't wait to play with is called the Book feature, it cuts the scallop edge but with a straight edge down one side. So this is how I made this little book, I manipulated the cuts a little bit on the gypsy, just made the pages very slightly more elongated than the previous one. I cut it out of the cardboard that is on the back of paper stacks, then cut a front and back for each page from the Martha Stewart pattern paper.
The '50' medallion figures were cut from Jasmine at 1 3/4", with a gold mirri card shadow
The book pages were cut at 5" (note: the dial size determines the HEIGHT of the cut, not the length)
I cut some pretty borders and shapes to decorate the inside, but left room for the photos
I think that gorgeous cut out daisy shape is my favourite.....
I decorated one photo mat with a couple of 'gold' rings threaded onto gold ribbon
Don't forget you still have time to take part in the Royal Wedding blog hop - scroll down
Someone in a store today, on hearing my accent, started enthusing about the royal wedding.
'Why did they start it so early though?' she asked. Well it could be something to do with the fact that it was a UK wedding, held in the UK, on UK time. Still, she liked the dress, and thought Harry was 'hot' so that was okay then....
See you tomorrow
