Welcome to this month's blog hop. We are featuring the "Even Easier" technique as shown on page 91 of the Spring/Summer 2012 ideabook. If you are coming from Shirley's blog you are on the right track!
Even easier - what could be better, right. This is accomplished by two super simple steps using our Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and a stampset. With a ideabook stuffed full of stamp sets made to coordinate with the 700 images available on the cartridge, all you have to do is pick your design, cut then stamp - how easy is that!!
For my layout I first began creating with our new Super Hero paper packet (X7152B). The colors of the paper worked perfectly with my pictures and since it is all double sided I could choose pieces that had no "hero" images to use. My next piece to use was our new stamp set Family Love (D1506). I wanted a sentimental/crazy saying for my family photo and this worked great. I then cut my tag from the cartridge twice - once for the saying, then again for the blue mat (I added 1/4" to my measurement for the mat). Sooo much easier than trying to cut this with scissors and get it nice and even!!
On a final note, I added two more images cut from the cricut cartridge to my layout. The blue stamp behind the saying and the tap for my hidden journaling. Even though the image I used wasn't made exactly for the stamp cut, it fit perfectly in the end!!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope I have inspired you to create "Even Easier". Now hop on over to Wendy's blog and see what she has in store for you.
