i hope you all had a great weekend.
i had time to play a bit in my craft room and i tell you, no matter how much i try to be organized and have a spot for everything, it never works. i dream of one day i will find the perfect layout. :-)
anyway, i had purchased this fancy frames cricut cart a while ago. the reason i chose to buy this cart was because the frame stand. i like to make my cards onto little table frames when possible, and this cart was perfect for my purpose.
(because the kind of day i was having in the craft room and lulu was not making things easier for me either, lol)
the cute dog is from sweethearts and the pretty paper from a company called gcd.
(i have tons of papers - i know you do too-we all do, lol- and this one has been with me for a long while.
sometimes i do not want to use them because they are so pretty, but i think one day i will make an album for all the good looking papers i own.
see the tear drop on the left?...hehe. it is the tongue cut, but because i was having a ruff day....lol.
the real tongue i cut in red. i used glossy accents to enhance it and a mini square rhinestone was added to the collar for the bling we all like...at least iknow i do. :-)
same glossy accent was added to the paw print and the sentiment is from my pink stamper. she has the best punnies ever. the mini butterfly is from a martha stewart's paper punch.
this is the inside using a 1$ clear stamp.
and finally the "stand".
notice the first piece i cut i adhered it too low and was not standing properly.
i had to cut another and positioned it a bit higher. i added the layers to the inside of the card for support, the front was a bit too heavy, and kept coming forward---something to keep in mind for the future..hehe
the frames in this cart are very nice and i would think they would work even better in scrapbook pages.
well, well....this is the end for now but before i leave i wanted to share with you three photos of a tree i planted last year---you know i like gardening too, lol. love gardening, i better say.---
anyway, i made "THIS CARD", all inspired by when i first saw tree on the internet.
the tree is a local and is called witch hazel. it is medicinal too. the fringes (flowers) are supposed to be yellow but mine came out red. this is why i bought the tree, because of them, because they bloom in winter---yes!!! in winter...awesome!!! the tree will loose it leaves and then these awesome flowers will be the showcase in winter.
here are the photos
see how pretty?
and the tree is a baby yet. i can't wait for it to mature.
now, this is really all for today.
soon i will be starting yard clean up but before i have to start some seeds. i do this every year. some live and some don't but i do not care. it is a pleasure when they do.
take care now and big hug to all.
thanks for stopping by too.
