Here's one for Papercraft Inspirations magazine - the quick cards section, my brief was birthday cards with gifts. I used the Martha Stewart present punch. It's well worth subscribing to this site, you get loads of ideas, and free downloads each month. The free papers in the magazine are available to print as well
I saw a post on the Cricut message board about the borders from the Elegant Edges cartridge. Someone was having problems cutting them, I decided to cut them all at 1" to give me a reference as to size. The book gives no indication how long they will be, and as you will see, they vary enormously. I have laid them on a sheet of 12 x 12 paper for the photographs, ten cuts to a page, corresponding to the rows on the overlay
Row one, cut one is at the top, then cut 2 below it and so on
I have been glued to the Olympics, watching sports that I have never seen before, and becoming an instant expert. 'Oh no' I groan 'he should have kept his shoulders down on that forward roll, he will be marked down for that'...... It's all very exciting, I am cheering for team GB of course, but loud cheers for the American and Canadian teams from me as well. The commentators do say some idiotic things though. 'A once in a lifetime opportunity that won't happen very often' burbled one. Well no!
'She started before she finished, so she will have to start again then finish' chirped another voice. Eh?
It's almost as much fun listening out for ridiculous remarks as it is watching the sport. I am quite exhausted just from watching and listening, I need to get fit to watch the track and field events!
I'll leave Humphrey singing on here for a few days before taking the link off, personally I am loving hearing the children whenever I pop over.
See you tomorrow with the winner of July's challenge
