Boy N Boot

So with my favorite software, MTC, I tried my hand at making a cut file from a photograph…after 8 hours of working on it…here is my first attempt (mind you, I couldn’t find my glasses so my faces are a tad, lets say not so great) :(


And this is my second attempt…still need a little more work to get it to where I will like it. Feel free to leave your comments.


I think if I can fix my head, I will be very happy with the rest of it, thanks for looking!

Another Monday night making cards

Here’s some cards that one of my younger girls made and allowed me to take pictures of her cards to share with all of you. She did a very good job…be sure to comment below and let her know how good she did. Enjoy!



Make a card Monday

So we had another Monday night class with 7 wonderful ladies, and 2 sweet younger ladies attending…each one making a few beautiful cards. Our first card of the evening was a scraplift that I saw, and modified it a little with files that I already had, and then I had to even change them a tad to make it the way I liked it, using Make the Cut software, (have I said lately how much I love this program)?

So our first card of the evening was entitled “Snail Mail”, a perfect card for those of us who procrastinate and forget to mail that birthday card or if you always send email, how about a card for that special someone, cause we all know a card in the mailbox would be a great pick me up! Enjoy!

Our second card of the evening was supposed to be using a technique called “faux bleaching”. It is a really neat technique, however, I thought when it called for glossy cardstock, I thought the writer meant photo paper. Although embossing on photo paper is really pretty, it didn’t work for what I was trying to accomplish. So we decided to table that card for another week and we did a fall card, still using Tim Holtz reinker dyes. We used the Maple Leaf Cuttlebug die cut/embossing folder, photo paper and reinkers. Sentiments for the cards were picked from a variety of stamps that our dear friend Ruby had brought with her…she is a Close to my Heart demonstrator and she has hundreds of beautiful stamps. So enjoy our cards as each one came out a little different.
