I needed a couple of cards for a card package I was making as a gift. Here is one I made using gorgeous grunge. I used black ink and summer starfruit. The butterflies were cut from CTMH Art philosophy cartridge at 1 inch. the scallop punch and circle punches are from Stampin Up.

This is an embossing folder I made this morning. As I am preparing for the crop I am attending in September I realized that one of the projects I plan on making uses an embossing folder similar to this one. Since I don't have this folder I decided to make my own. I used a cut from Mothers Day Kids cart to design this card. Since I don't have the cart, I made an svg of the image and cut it with SCAL2. I used three layers of ultra thick cardstock to make this. It requires one shim when running through the cuttlebug. The design measures 5.514 x 6.368

This is where I keep my cricut cartridges. My Imagine cartridges are not in this section of my craftroom, they are kept on the desk that my Imagine is on. I have gone right to the ceiling with these carts. I prefer having the carts over the digitals (although I do have several of them). I realize I am going to have to take these carts out of the boxes, but, I really don't want to do that. How do you store your cartridges, (please leave pictures in the comments.)

I have been wanting to try the Heidi Swapp foil for quite some time. Christine from Creations with Christine did a couple of posts with her new Minc machine. I would love to have a Minc machine but the budget just doesn't allow it. I researched and found that I could you something that I already had, something I just had to have but doesn't get much use.....my Your Story Machine. I went on my older computer that has a laserjet printer, I downloaded an image and set it to the printer. I printed on cardstock. My first attempt wasn't bad, my second better, results I'm happy with. I did not use a carry sheet or cover for this I simply ran the foil through the machine directly ontop of my image. I ran them through the machine 4 times. I do have to say the toner in my laserjet printer is old, and was not a true deep black. I bought red and gold foil, Christmas is coming and I figured these would be great colours to work with.

Wow where is the summer going. I haven't had much time in my craftroom as I have company.
The company arrived the first week of July and are here until September 01, 2015. So I haven't been doing much crafting. My brother recently purchased a new truck. His nickname is spider so he wanted to add some spiders to the truck. We put the decals on last night (in the rain of course).
I used vinyl from Deserres, my cricut and scal2 to create the images.
