Today was the first for many things crafting. I made a card with my cricut machine! I used the cuttlebug to add embossing and I entered my first two challenges! (mypinkstamper birthday challenge and peachykeen challenge emboss it) How fun! But can I tell you just how slow I am at this? What would be a quick card for most turned into a day long project. Trying to pick out paper was harder than I thought. Every blog I view makes it looks so easy. I now have an even bigger respect for all you crafters. There are many tricks I still need to learn. If I did the card over I'd cut the top of the cupcake slightly larger so there is no gap between cake and wrapper. I would like to learn how to save paper by cutting only the image I need from each paper. Anyway, lots to learn but there are also lots of talented people I can continue to stalk!
Here is my DD LOVING the cuttlebug. She wanted to emboss ever piece of paper we had. I finally had to put it away. She made a get well card for her grandmother.
She did this herself. I helped with measuring
and cutting. The rest is all her! So proud!
