Word Collage

I wanted to try out the Word Collage Project cartridge tonight, so I decided to use the Sugar & Spice collage.  I used DCWV Baby Girl paper stack and the background paper is SU not sure of the colour off hand. 
Well it was certainly time consuming glue everything down.  What I did was when I had finished cutting it out and weeding the extra paper, I left all of the letters on the Cricut mat.  This was cut using Fit To Page, which was 11".  I then laid the scrap paper that I had removed from the mat on top of my background paper as a template.  I then took each letter and added my adhesive and placed it back into the spot where it had come from.  This made sure that everything was in the right place and was evenly spaced and straight.  I think it turned out pretty good but would definitely be so much easier with vinyl.  Just for a little embellishment I added two cuts from the Nursery Tails Imagine cartridge in the corners.  I will probably put this in a frame.

Have you got this cartridge?  What have you made with it?

Purple Funtastick Creations Guest Designer

I am so excited to be a guest designer today for Kari over a .  Thank you Kari!  The theme's that I was given to chose from were Back to School or End of Summer.  As my daughter is 28yrs old, I chose End of Summer and I did a layout of a Road Trip my daughter and I took last weekend. 

My daughter Amanda and I went to my Dad and Step-Mom's for the weekend.  They live in Windsor, Ontario which is across the border from Detroit, MI so we had to cross the border and do a little bit of shopping.  We had a great relaxing weekend and picked up some great deals.

For my layout I used the Summer Vacation Solutions Cartridge and my gypsy.  I welded together 3 copies of the road and laid it out on a 12 x 24 mat using 2 12 x 12 pieces of black SU cardstock so that it would layout on the two pages and split perfectly down the middle.  I also laid out where I wanted the city names to go on the same gypsy layout.  The car and Road Trip are also from the same cartridge and the paper is from SU.  The mats are cut from the Martha Stewart Travel paper pack.
For the journal mat I used a stamp from the My Journaling stamp set by stamped with Tuxedo Black ink by Momento and cut out using the small classic oval die from Spellbinders as well as the small classic scalloped oval die.
To add a bit of embellishment I used my glitter pen on the city names and my white gelly roll pen for some doodling. 

I hope that you enjoyed my post and make sure to stop by and give Kari some love.

Shopping in Michigan

My daughter Amanda and I went to my Dad and Step-Mom's in Windsor, Ontario this past weekend.  Windsor is right across the border from Detroit, Michigan so of course we had to go and do some shopping.  Our first stop was Joanne's Fabrics.  I was looking for the new Teresa Collins Sophisticated Cricut cartridge and the Word Collage and Fancy Frames cartridges.  I found Cricut cartridge displays in 3 different places in the store but not what I was looking for but as I had ran into this before I checked the locked cage where they keep the actual cartridges and there they all were.  Sophisticated cartridge $29.99 and the two project cartridges were $19.99 each.  Great deals!  I was also able to get a set of scalloped rectangle Spellbinders for $15.00, the DCWV Guy Stack and Lemon Flower Stack, 12 x 12 Chipboard, Brown Memento ink, Zots and Scotch quick dry glue. 

 The next craft store stop was Michael's.  Unfortunately I forgot to print out coupons for Michael's so I only picked up 3 packages of Recollections paper that was on sale for 3 for $10 and some E-6000 glue.

I was so happy that I was able to get the cartridges that I was looking for and I can't wait to use them.  I just loaded them on my Gypsy.  Now to let the creativity flow.

Thanks for stopping by.
