I finally have something creative to post!
I wanted to create a spring banner
and started on it last week-end
but it was one of those days
when NOTHING went right in the magic kingdom...
so I set it aside
after completing the "base" of it.
Yesterday afternoon & evening
I embellished it...
and then discovered that
where I wanted to hang it---
(across the church pew we have in our kitchen
it didn't show up too well.
I didn't realize
quite how large it is...
I may have to put it there anyway.
I used Close to My Heart's new paper
along with CTMH Cricut cartridges
Artiste and Art Philosophy
Some retired CTMH stamp sets...
along with some contraband (aka not CTMH product...)
I really like how it came together...
I just should have used maybe three of the banner pieces
and condensed it a little.
I had fun
and it certainly looks spring-y.
You cannot see it in the pics
but I added a little holographic embossing
between the banner pieces so it has some sparkle.
The pom-pom trim is just too fun not to include it.
I need to go clean up my creative mess.
and speaking of which---
this is one of those
I never thought of that before
This past week
the copier in my office went down.
After a thorough exam with flashlight,
tweezers, etc. and seeing no tidbits of paper
jammed somewhere it shouldn't be
(as the machine kept telling me there was...)
I called my friendly Xerox repairman.
He came out.
He found no paper stuck, either.
What he did find, however,
was an intsy tinsy piece of
not much bigger than a pin head
on a sensor deep inside the machine.
One little speck
created lots of complications.
And I thought of this yesterday
while I was working with both
GLITTER and my CRICUT....
maybe not such a good idea!
I think I will avoid having those two things going
at the same time.
I don't (personally) know any Circuit repairmen
so I will play it safe!
Off to do some housework
and then to the hairdresser.
Until next time,
happy stamping and scrapping!
