Dang! I made that!

Okay, I don't often walk around being shocked at something I've made.  I'm pretty pleased generally, but things don't always turn out past my expectations when I'm paper crafting!  This page makes me go DANG!  I DID THAT!   

The parts that impress me are my little banners. 

I love those boxy banners at Paper Trey Ink.  Went searching through all my Cricut cartridges to see if I have something in there that was like them.  Looked to see if there was something in a cartridge my nieghbor might have in her stash.  Nope, nothing like the shape they have in their dies....bummer, right? 

Nope! I sat down for too long, and worked it out on my Sure Cuts A Lot.  I put triangles together with a square and worked some magic with them, lined up the edges, and making parts disappear to make it one shape.  Created them myself, I'm so proud of myself!  And I saved them, so that means I can make them larger or smaller, or whatever when I want too! 

Than I played around with the Gypsy last night and layered up my letters on Winter Woodlands.  The font was perfect for a winter themed page.  And layering is a breeze with the Gypsy.  I added the letters to the banner and cut out some snowflakes from Nesties dies, and Cuttlebug die cuts.  Added some scrappers floss, Martha Twine, and gems to bling them up a bit.  Perfect touch on my least I think so!
Supplies:  K and Co. Winterberry paper, DCWV cardstock, SU Garden Green ink, Cranberry Crisp ink, Cricut, Sure Cuts A Lot, Winter Woodland cartridge, Jeanette Lynton's Book,

Thanks for stopping by!
