Cricut Journal

Tonight, I completed a journal that was being made as part of a Christmas gift for a pre-teen cousin of mine. She loves cheerleading, so I created a cheerleader out of the girl on Beyond Birthdays and the pom-pom (one of the layers to a birthday hat!!) on Celebrations. I put that on the journal, along with her name with a black-out shadow. I love the Design Studio. Without it, I could not have made this journal. I used it to cut the front, back, and spine, as well as the name, shadow, and cheerleader. I did cut the pom-poms a second time so that I could add a second color to those in her hands.

The paper was all SU - pixie pink, close to cocoa, pink passion(?), and pumpkin pie. The ribbon was $1 at JoAnn's and the added bling was a gift from my niece about a month ago.

The cheerleader up close.

As always, I'd love to hear what you think!

Oh - the cartridge storage mentioned in the last post is working very well. Next time (perhaps in my spare time after Christmas - YEAH RIGHT!), I'd love to make it out of wood. I have the tools.... I just need to do it. AND ... NO. DH cannot do it for me. Remember that I said that *I* have the tools ......... That's not his comfort zone. Give him a computer ... NOT a saw. :)

Have an awesome night and a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!!!

    I hear you on the power tools. Bob and I tool shop together. My favorite woodworking tool has to be the miter saw. And now we have a big one for metal. Hmmmm Now to learn how to use the welder. hehe


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment on my creations. I pray that the Lord blesses you in many ways today!!!
