project + testing

tags

Today is the final day of school of 2011. I can't wait for pick-up time. We're all ready for the break. The collection of gift tags are a little something that will be part of our teachers' gifts. We can all use extra gift tags right? I used a combination of different sets of my flowers, lattices and holiday kit.

I had both my Cricut and Cameo going at the same time (spoiled a bit!). All I can say is that I'm still not used to the Cameo mat. Still waaaay too sticky. A friend has heard of people that rub stick/unstick mats to carpet. While I'll never do that I did think that rubbing a piece of fabric over it several times would help and it did. Now if I can only figure out where the cutting starts/stops on the screen in comparison to the real paper on the mat—aka. learning curve!

Water ballon luminaries: I want to try this! They look easy to make and they're really beautiful.

Have a great weekend everyone!

  2. If only I were a paper crafter...
    Those luminaries are awesome. Ah, someday, Patricia, someday I'll get around to making all these things I have bookmarks. *snrt* no I won't, but hopefully I'll get to these!

  5. Beautiful! Just pinned these to Pinterest.

    Also, wanted to say that I've tried those balloons and loved them. I've also added pressed leaves to them.
