Sometimes I start to clean up my computer desktop and discover bits and pieces of projects that I started and never shared - usually because I had an idea to take the project in another direction and haven't had a chance to do that yet. I was searching for something completely different when I ran across this image. I created this digitally starting with a cornucopia image from Twisted Papers. If you are at all interested in vintage images to use for your projects you should definitely check out this site.
Most of the single images are just $1.00 and you can get a monthly subscription for $24.95 that allows you to download 500 images - which makes them about a nickel each! You do not have to commit to more than a month and the subscription does not renew automatically. If you are curious to see the image that I used to make the star at the top of this post, you will find it HERE.
I always find it fascinating to see how different an image looks when you change the background color - here are a couple of examples.
Unfortunately, I didn't get to complete this long postponed project on Wednesday - I was busy working on some items for the wedding rehearsal dinner (and using lots of adhesive!)
This is what my work area looked like when I stopped for the day. I know I should have just tossed all of this but I couldn't resist taking a picture first! Things will be getting even busier than usual around here as we count down the days to the wedding. I do have some non-wedding projects to share with you in the meanwhile and there will be lots of photos and possibly some files to share after the wedding.
Today is "Hello Thursday" when new Cricut cartridges are announced. I don't know if anyone is still trying to collect all of the cartridges. It seemed like a realistic possibility to own them all when I first got my Cricut four years ago. I have realized over time that I don't need or want them all. The good thing is that with the wide variety of cartridges issued, there is something for everyone. A cartridge that has no appeal for me may be just the thing that someone else is looking for.
I have also been working with other machines and software programs that are allowing me to create totally unique images. I am finding many new possibilities that I hope to be able to share with you soon. I still use my Cricuts frequently but I wanted to explore new ways of creating. I am excited to see what I can do with just my imagination and software that allows me to easily do some of the things that are either not possible or very time consuming with Design Studio or the Gypsy (or the CraftRoom online design tool that is still in beta).
I wonder how many of you are interested in learning more about some of these other options?
