Yes - you have arrived in the right place. At long last I am doing some blog housekeeping and making the changes I have been thinking about for a long time. Please bear with me as I get things sorted out. I will be moving and changing things and also adding more pages and graphics along the way. I am determined to make all of my own elements so my blog will be unique!
For the past few weeks, I have been working on a system for the labels on my posts. After a couple of years of blogging it was getting tricky for me to find some of my own posts, especially if I was not sure about the approximate date. I have a new code system to try to make it easier. I work on relabeling items whenever I get a chance but it is a slow process. If you are just starting a blog, take a word of advice and figure out your labels with a consistent system that will grow with you!
The "code" I am using is meant to cluster the labels in groups. For instance, I had been using just the name of the Cricut cartridge that I used for a design or project. The labels end up in straight alphabetical order so the cartridges were intermingled with other labels and that made it harder to focus on finding the cartridges.
The "Key" for the clusters is
"B" for other blogs
"Blog" for items about this blog
"C" for Cricut cartridges
"D" for Designers
"H" for Holidays
"O" for Other Topics (some that are not "crafty")
"P" for Projects (Cards are further subdivided by type)
"PC" for Provo Craft products
"PR" for Products
"T" for Technique
These categories will probably evolve a bit more as I find categories that fit everything and continue changing and adding labels. For now you may have to check in two parts of the list to find what you are looking for. (For example, there are still 55 Plantin Schoolbook posts to relabel).
So, enough housekeeping - let's have some fun!
If you "like" the new Capadia Designs Facebook page (they used to say if you are a "fan") you know about the challenge I posted on the page. Here is a LINK if you'd like to join us there.
The Challenge -
I originally got my Cricut to help with scrapbooking - I wasn't really a cardmaker. Now I find that I do far fewer layouts than before - too busy with cards and other projects!
So - the challenge is to make a scrapbook page. I have posted a sketch that I did last year - you can use it if you'd like. ...If you have something else in mind that's fine. The only requirements are that you have to have at least three Cricut cuts on the page (easy since there are several circles in the sketch!) and that you weld your own title using Design Studio (or the Gypsy). If you don't have Design Studio or Gypsy - we need to talk!
Here is the digital page I did with this sketch. We are doing paper pages, this is just for a bit of inspiration.
