Gorgeous grunge birthday card

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.

Homemade embossing folder

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

Cricut storage

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.)

Your story and foil

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 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.

Truck decals

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.
