Brae'ers Team Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends!
     Well its time again for our team's blog hop! If you have come from Kim McArhter's blog then you are in the right place!! This month we will be focusing on the cricut and the art work that they can do!

CTMH now has 3 cartridges with over 700 images in each! they really pack a punch! I have just receive the newest one called "artbooking" and this is the layout I made....

I used Sorbet card stock because it really captured the beautiful sunset! and the paper surfs up was perfect! Luckily you can still get that paper as it has carried over to this idea book on page 55.
I used the overlay on pay 81 and the photo frame from page52 and the words coolin off from page 53. Here is a closeup of the left side......

and now the right side

I also used the workshop on the go stamp set for the sun and the wave :) It may need some more embellishments.....what do you think????
Please continue on the hop to see what Brea's blog to see what she has made.

Thanks for stopping in :)

AHSC # 15

Hello crafty friends!
   This week at AHSC I adapted the sketch slightly! check out the sketch here I have always wanted to try this "triple stamping" technique that I learned last year from a sister consultant but I have never tryed it! Then when I was sleeping inspiration hit! ( probably because I was talking to her  and you know how the subconsious works!) Anyway I just added an extra layer and I just LOVE this card!! It is bright and cheerful and I know just the girlfriend who is getting it for her birthday! She hates white, open space and there is NONE on this card! :)
Till next time! hope you get some inspiration!
