Sous sketch ( Bruce )

Hi all,Well it's Friday and that means reveal day for Sous I love these....... So here is our new sketch and it is a real beauty! Don't forget to come on over and play along we would love to see your take. Here is my take on the sketch, I was so inspired by Dawn's tutorial on the cardboard that I had to try it. It is not nearly as good as hers she is such a very talented lady....but it didn't turn out to bad.

I used Dawn's technique for the cardboard and sprayed glitter on it that doesn't show up to well in the picture.

Cricut cartridge: Life's a beach ,Sponge Bob and George

Life's a beach for Title cut @2 ins 6 times to make them thick like chip board then I inked them with Tim Holtz inks and the shark cut @3 ins chalked it, pop dotted and added google eyes. The wave was cut @ 1in shadowed and chalked.......

Sponge Bob for all the seed weed , star fish and shells....

Some gems

Cricut cartridge Picturesque for the corner on the picture

George for the circle cut @ 8 ins and inked.

Cut to strips and embossed them with swirls cuttle bug folder

Added jute strips and tied them at the top.

Martha Stewart Branch punch as fillers for the shells

Epcot finding Nemo I made in to a sticker.....

This one was really fun to do I hope you enjoy it .

Route 66

Happy Monday all,

I really like playing with this cart Nifty Fifties a lot of great cuts .

I promise this is the last one for a while....

This card is for my future son in-law his Birthday card.

I used Nifty Fifties cricut cart for all the cuts

added some ribbon and pop dots.....

Also wanted to share with you that Provo craft sued MTC ( make the cut ) and won

and now they are going after SCAL ( sure cuts a lot ) so they won't be compatible with the cricut expression .... but I learned that if you don't update your soft ware you can still cut the svg files.... I really don't know why prove craft can't join with scal & mtc . Even though I use scal I still buy cricut carts... so what is the big deal!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day

A wee bit Irish

Happy March 2nd,

Wow I can't believe it is march already ..but I am not complaining can't wait for summer!

I have really been itching to do some layouts so I worked on this one this afternoon.

I took this pic of Courtney goofing off with her St Patty's hair band, and she is just a wee bit

Paper : K & Company & My minds eye

Chip board scallop & Arrow covered them with paper and inked them.

For the scallop I added some lace behind it and gingham ribbon with a buckle I made and heat embossed with gold embossing power.

The title A wee bit Irish , hat and clover I welded and cut with design studio...

I made my own chip board letters then heat embossed them with green embossing powder.

I used paper glass on the small hat

Cricut carts used: Life is a beach for the font, A child's year for the hat, celebrate with flourishes for the clover,picturesque for the corner flourishes , and Treasure box designs Girl leprechaun svg ...... added a few green gems to the arrow and that's it a fun whimsical layout!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day
