One file, different looks! Even if it isn't a hard to make Design Studio file, I will still save it, as in the case of the happy birthday card in my last post, where I used the embossing kit and Ten Second Studio's metal sheets. For my other 2 cards I used the same file, but drew with the mini gel pen holder & colored them in with Copics! Very simple cards!
The papers are all Basic Grey's Olivia line.

Chomas Creations embossing/scoring kit video

I've had a lot of requests for a video using the Ten Seconds Studio's metal sheets, and how I get the look that I do! This is the card I got done with the Cricut, the embossing kit for the Cricut, Ten Seconds Studio's metal sheet, acrylic mat, paper stump & Snow Block.

And here is the video! Let me know what you think!

Well Donna Mundinger of Popsicle Toes is at it again! Donna made another amazing card with the mini gel pen holder and the new mini gel pens!!! She has so many great ideas!!! Look at how this card turned out!!!

Great news! For 9 years now my 12 year old has been on medication for seizures, there have been countless EEG's, MRI's, catscans, and of course worry. We were told he would eventually outgrow them, and just a few weeks ago we finally got a "normal" EEG which means we can ween him off the meds! So I took him outside for a quick photo shoot and a scrapbook page to document just how happy we are here! 2 thumbs up!
The background on this page was embossed with the embossing kit for the Cricut, the Batman cartridge, and Ten Seconds Studios metal sheets. In order to get this look I put the metal sheet colored side down, then sand the debossed side. I designed the title in Design Studio with Plantin. The journaling block used the mini gel pens as well. The papers are Basic Grey's Oliver line.

One of my favorite parts of going to CHA were all the amazing people I got to meet, and the ideas we got to talk about! So while sitting with Donna Mudinger of Popsicle Toes about the mini gel pen holder, and telling her that I had used the Copics to color in images I had drawn with the Cricut and the mini gel pen holder for the Cricut, she had a lightbulb go off, and was excited to get home and try! So prepared to be AMAZED at what Donna came up with! I could only dream of being that good with the Copics, hehe! You can also go to Donna's blog here... fawn card by Donna and get the directions and more close ups on how she made this beauty! Thanks Donna!

Hooters Layout with Chomas Creations embossing kit & Make-the-Cut

For my son's 1st birthday, his Grampa wanted to take him to Hooters to celebrate! lol I think his Grampa had a lot more fun then he did though... just sayin!
I had no idea what to do with these pictures, I mean there are no Hooters scrapbook papers and embellies (I could be wrong, lol), so these pictures have sat for 3 years, until now! I downloaded the Hooter's logo from google, opened it in Make the Cut and traced it, then embossed it with the embossing kit on Ten Seconds Studios metal sheets. Looks like the owl even has feathers!
To get that look, lay the metal sheet colored side down, emboss your image, then remove it from the sheet and sand the debossed side!
The journaling circle was done with the mini gel pen holder and Cricut as well.
The papers and embellies are Imaginesce.

One thing is for sure, my son Jack has a lot of personality! So he for sure needed a page with as much personality as he has, and these print and cuts from Silhouette had just that! I then designed the title with the journaling lines in the Silhouette software, drew them out with the mini gel pen holder for the Silhouette, then colored in the title with the Copic markers to look like FIRE!!! I also did the chain link fence with the mini gel pen holder for the Silhouette as my background paper. I also popped up the puppy dog on the page for depth!!! For my Silhouette friends, the mini gel pen holder is on sale now for $20, price includes shipping! Or you can get both the mini gel pen & mini Sharpie holder for $39, price includes shipping! I also have 20 colors of mini gel pens available as well!

Sorry I didn't get to it yesterday, but I finally got a chance today to pick the Cricut Imagine T winner, and it is...

I got a layout done yesterday with Mini Monsters, Design Studio and the embossing kit for the Cricut on the Ten Seconds Studios metal sheets.
Again I flipped the metal sheets colored side down on my embossing mat, and sanded off the debossed side for this effect. Look how cute all the monsters look in that border!!! And look how cute my little monsters are as well! See what I get when the camera comes out?
The paper lines are the new Echo Park, super cute! Love the colors of them. The Ten Seconds Studio metal sheet is Appletini! How cute a name is that for a color?

My itsy bitsy spider! I love when the kids come home with cute crafts they have done at school and I can't resist a good photo of them with their masterpieces! When I saw the cute spider and spider web on Mini Monsters I knew it would be perfect for these photos! Being it is still a girly page, I used pretty colors for my itsty bitsy spider page. The web and title were embossed with the embossing kit for the Cricut, Design Studio and the black Ten Seconds Studio's metal sheets. I layered the spider 3 times and then popped it up with some pop dots for texture.
When you are embossing any words on these metal sheets, make sure to flip the letters in Design Studio so they are not backwards!!!
My journaling circle is also with the mini gel pens! I keep a bunch handy so I can use them when I need them!

Oooooh yeah! Copics and mini gel pens! They work so well together! Think of all the things you could draw, instead of stamp, to use for designs! Here I made my title with Doodletype & Design Studio, then drew it with the mini gel pen holder and the new glitter gel pens from Chomas Creations! I then colored in the title with Copic markers! I'm still in the practice stage with them, but I thought it turned out pretty good!!! And they are for sure fun to play with!!!
The papers and embellies are all part of the Basic Grey Olivia line.
The photo is me and my daughter, who I have lovingly referred to as my peanut since my very first ultrasound of her, and as you can see she is still a lil peanut!

Train with the Chomas Creations embossing kit and Make-the-Cut

Yet another embossed layout to help share the love of my blog candy! You can see this post here... Blog candy post
This is a train I downloaded from google, and with the help of the embossing kit for the Cricut, Make-the-Cut, and Ten Seconds Studios metal sheets, this is what I got! It looks even cooler in real life! Just imagine, ANYTHING you could want to emboss on metal! ANYTHING! My son just loves this train we have, and I've been sitting on these pictures forever because there was nothing "train" for a scrapbook page that I was impressed with, until now!! I did get these cute papers from Basic Grey's Oliver line as well, and the now 1 1/2 year old photos are finally done!!! Look at the details!

Thursday, August 05, 2010

Here I go again! I'm addicted to the metal sheets and the Cricut, I will admit, I have a problem lol! So here is another one! For this page I used the embossing kit for the Cricut, Ten Seconds Studios metal sheets, Graphically Speaking, and Design Studio. I stacked the circles for the title in Design Studio!
Again, to get the look on metal, you need to put the colored side down, and sand off the debossed side. Being that Ten Seconds Studios has such amazing colors of metal sheets, this works awesome on them!
The paper line is all Basic Grey Oliver.
