I'm so excited to be part of the Make-the-Cut blog hop! If you have come from Beanie's Tag Your It then you are in the right place! If you just ventured across my blog today and want to start at the beginning of the MTC blog hop, start with Scrappin With Z
I've got lots in store that I've done with MTC and if you read to the end, I have some blog candy to give away! And if you come back tomorrow I will have another project with another download!
I've gotten a lot of requests for a video with the journaling circles I do, so I made one! You may need to click on the video to go to youtube as for some reasons the sides get cut off on my blog, but make sure you come back after you watch it!
I also have the file for MTC for the journaling cirlces for download here...journaling circles file
I do use a lot of the journaling circles on my page, so I make a bunch at a time so I can just grab one when I need one! I find my journaling goes so much quicker this way, and if you know me, you know I like to get things done quick! I never spend a lot of time on one page, or one project, hey I've got 4 kids that need scrapbooks, and that I need to take care of, so I try to simplify where I can!
Ok, on with my project! Here is one of my journaling circles on my page, along with my journaling!
I found this palm tree file online and knew I needed to use it with the Chomas Creations embossing kit and metal sheets! See all those details? You can see each leaf! The Chomas Creations embossing kit can emboss even the finest details! To get this look, I found an image online and brought it into MTC and traced it. I then added some of the ovals from the shapes menu in MTC around the palm trees. I put my Ten Seconds Studio metal sheet colored side down on my embossing mat, and embossed the design with my pressure on max on the Cricut. After the image was done embossing, I flipped it over and sanded the color of the raised surface to really let the details POP!
Just think, pretty much any image (black and white seems to work best for tracing in MTC) you can find online, you can bring into MTC to cut, draw, emboss or engrave with your Cricut!
