Wow, time flew by sorry it took a couple days to get this up. I couldn’t believe when I woke up this morning and checked my email that I had my first ever spotlighted challenge card. My sailboat card was spotlighted over at the Sweet Stop. I am so excited!!! But I know you all are dying for part 2 of the embossing folder video and to see how great the invites turned out using the layers function of the Life’s a Beach cartridge. The video is a short one just to show how I save everything to use over and over again.
Now I have to say I struggled yesterday as it seemed like everything I touched broke or got ruined. I thought I would have these invites done by 6pm and at midnight I was running them over to my brother’s house. Jeremy even got in on the action when he dropped the box of envelopes and it fell precisely on the button of the power strip that the TV is on. So he thought the TV broke but luckily it was just some fluke that the corner of the box hit the switch. The colors on the invite are so vibrant I am a little disappointed in the pictures. Here is the front.
I used the font “bamboo” and the colors are bubblegum pink and papaya yellow with a tealish light blue, told you the pictures weren’t good. The wording is printed by the Print Shop in downtown Ravenna. I just love them they printed on 80lb smooth cardstock. But I cut the flower “layers” in 2 sizes 1.25″ and 2″ in both Papaya and Bubblegum. Now for the back.
The letters were cut from the Life’s a beach cartridge as well in Papaya. Well luckily they loved them even though they wound up being such a pain for me. These are sized at 3.5″ x 5.5″ and fit nicely in a standard A2 envelope. I still have 1 more card to show you using the layers function but I probably won’t have that up until late tomorrow as I am hosting my 2nd annual Christmas in July for our troops, Operation Write Home party. I love this event and can’t wait to share with you all the fun that is had.
All supplies are A Muse Studio unless otherwise noted
Paper: Bubblegum, Papaya (hawaiian shores by papertrey ink)
Cricut cartridge: Life’s a beach
I have a 2 part video to show you a whole new way to use the “layers” function of the Life’s a Beach cartridge. I used the waves to make a custom embossing folder for my niece’s 2nd Birthday invitations. Today’s video shows you how to make the folder itself. Tomorrow I will share the project as well as how to save everything for use again. Hope you enjoy!
As many of you know A Muse Studio’s ink pads are raised foam and not “linen” or “encased”. For me it makes for a nice solid and smooth image. Well I decided to make my first tutorial video. I know crazy, 4 months ago I was not a blogger, or video maker but if I am going to give something a go I give it 100%. So let me introduce you to my newest project.
Feel free to use or share this video and I would appreciate feedback especially from some of you veteran tech savvy people. Thanks for watching!
