Martha on Monday at Scrappy-Go-Lucky
Today is Monday so I have another "Martha on Monday" post over on the Scrappy-Go-Lucky blog HERE. I have been taking a look at the Martha Stewart Crafts Cake Art cartridges and this week I reviewed the All Occasions cartridge.
The Martha Stewart cartridges are full of great fonts, sentiments, medallions, borders and images. One of my favorite features on the All Occasions cartridge is the banner feature. There are two styles of pennants and several choices for contrasting borders to personalize your project. Please pop over to the Scrappy-Go-Lucky blog to see more about this cartridge and be sure to scroll back and check out the projects by the Design Team and guests - I know you'll find something to inspire you!
I also want to let you know that Twisted Papers, one of my favorite sites for vintage images, is back up and running after the loss of their entire database due to a massive server problem. They have over 6,000 images uploaded and are adding more constantly. If you had an account with them you will need to re-register.
I enjoy using their images along with my Cricut designs to make unique cards. Here is an example from last year. Their images are very high quality and reasonably priced - most are just $1. If you see lots of images you like they also have a terrific deal - you can sign up for a monthly subscription for $24.95 and get up to 500 downloads in a 30 day period (that's only 5 cents a download!). There is no automatic renewal so you can decide when to subscribe.
Twisted Papers offers all sorts of styles and types of images. The cute image of three bunnies at the top of this post was one of their monthly freebies last year. They also have advertising art, old photographs, background papers, fashion illustrations, sheet music - I could spend hours browsing their site. You can sign up for their newsletter with some freebies and they also have a Facebook fan page where you can keep up with ideas and freebies.
I want to thank everyone who has left comments or sent email messages of sympathy for the death of my stepmother - they are truly appreciated. I will be catching up on things for the next few days and I will answer emails as soon as I can.
Spring has officially arrived and tonight they said there might be snow...I certainly hope not!
