So I have decided to sort out a few drawers and to make things a bit easier for me. And then I sat down after running across a few things that I forgot I had and decided to make a sign. I love the "Live, Love, Laugh" signs that I see in stores and on cards... and decided to make something for my wall. (somewhere in between all of this I did go to AC Moore, they were having a 40% off sale on paper!)
I used Pagoda for the symbols and MTC to make the words. I really thought this was nice but knew it needed something more. I used a black gel pen to outline everything, and some Prima flowers and some trim with jewels on it. I punched holes using my Crop a Dile and strung orange and black ribbon to hang it with. All very nice!
Ahhh... so nice, and now I have something inspirational for my scrap room wall.
I am a member of SOC - there is a badge on the right, if you would like to check it out... Anyway, I am hosting the October Cricut Challenges and my first challenge to the group is to create a tag. Now I am not talking about your ordinary tag. I challenged folks to use their Cricuts to cut out the tag and use the FIT TO PAGE option! The tag has to be a fall theme and have the word FALL or AUTUMN on it. So, as the hostess of the challenge I posted the following tag.
I used the window from the Christmas Noel cartridge with the fit to page feature and for "glass" I used acetate I got from a package. My tree, and lamp post are from Graphically Speaking, and the pumpkins and leaves are from Doodlecharms. The small branches are from a Martha Stewart punch, and the sign on the lamp post are 2 circles layered with leaves and branches. I plan on making one of these window tags for each season!
