Welcome to Day One of PaperCraftingWorld.com and CookingWithCricut.com’s first Blog Hop of 2012! Our theme is: “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue!”
If you have arrived here from Linda’s blog Linda's Creativity you’re in the right place! If you’re joining us mid-hop, head on over to see Melin at CookingWithCricut.com and start at the beginning so you don’t miss any of the wonderful projects the Designers have created!
Our Designers had to use something old from their craft stash, something new (a recent purchase or new technique), something borrowed (an element from a Cricut cut or from a PaperCraftingWorld.com cutting file or digi stamp) and of course, something blue.
I L.O.V.E. Christmas Cards! I rush out to the mailbox to see what cards have arrived during the month of December.
When the Christmas season is over I get so sad to take the Christmas cards down. I normally take them down and file them in a box. NOT THIS YEAR! Jamielyn from I heart naptime came up with an idea to put the cards onto an 8 1/2 X 11 piece of paper and then put them in a binder using protective sheets....just what I needed, quick simple, and DONE!
Here is the cover I designed:
So I went back and started with 2006. I have all the cards in the book and I divide the years with a printable I got from eighteen 25's blog . The printable on the cover is the same as the year dividers.
I just have to share a picture of my son in my parents' Christmas card this year. I think he looks like a child from the show Little Rascals or a Norman Rockwell child. I can't decide...he cracks me up!
Something old-Christmas Cards
Something new- laminator
Something Blue- blue color on printable
The cricut cartridge I used was Straight from the Nest (the green border and the corner shape)
-------BLOG CANDY ALERT!-----------
One special person will be getting the cartridge Wild Card.
