Nifty Numbers

Today's date is 10-11-12, that must be a lucky day!

If you have been reading my blog for a while you know that I am a little bit obsessed with numbers and patterns.  I have been sorting out some issues with my computer and came across this project from several years ago that I never posted.

The Cricut cartridge "Graphically Speaking" is one of my all time favorites.  There are lots of unexpected treasures on this cartridge.  While I have been enjoying my Cameo and I love to design my own images and projects, I still appreciate the convenience of picking up a cartridge and simply cutting something.

I did use Design Studio to weld the images together to create this background but you could just cut four images and add them to your page (they are only welded in two places).  The cut is very intricate and it will take a while to lift it off the mat (you have to be slow and careful as you remove the cut because some of the connections are very thin).

If you keep the edge piece, you could trim it a bit and make a second background.

There are number borders 0 - 9 on the cartridge so you could make a birthday background for any age.

While we are on the subject of dates and numbers - remember tomorrow is the 12th so if you are doing the 12 on the 12th on 2012 project - it is time to take those 12 (or more) photos!
