Catching up...

I have to admit that despite my desire to spend time in my craft room I needed to take a day to just catch my breath!  The past few weeks have been so full of travel and events.  I have just a couple of things to share for today.

One is this glimpse at a beautiful wedding card my neighbor made.  She was looking for ideas about cartridges with flowers that would suit the design.  I showed her some great punches that I have had for a while but I haven't had time to photograph and write about them.  It is a two step system with separate punches to cut and emboss.  I'll have to get busy and use them soon - in the meanwhile, they were perfect for her card.

The free digital cartridge for this week in the Cricut Craftroom is the Teresa Collins Holiday Silhouettes.  There are eight simple two layer images in the set.

When you log into your Craftroom account, you will see that they are included under the menu heading "my cartridges."

The latest Dover samples include several that have good potential for diecutting.   This silhouette of a lady in a hat was easy to trace - I may try to cut it this weekend.  If  you don't already get the weekly sampler emails from Dover, you can sign up HERE.  The samples for this week are HERE.

After everyone, including the cat, was packed and ready to go the house started to look empty.  It was even quieter when I got back from the airport.  We did hear that everything went fine at security - it is a little challenging when you travel with an animal!

Have a crafty day!

  1. Hi Diane, your neighbors card is beautiful. Poor Jelly probably can't wait to get out of there and check out California!
    Have a lovely day.

  2. What a stunning card. Poor jelly. I'm sure he will miss you terribly.
