Valentine Cards

K has dance on Monday’s and it just so happens that V day falls on a Monday this year, so we made some cards with suckers for the other little girls in her class and her teacher.  We had fun with these.  I used SCAL for the card shape and the slits for her to insert the suckers into.  I used my Create A Critter cartridge for the little bee and a rubber stamp for the “B mine” and some heart ribbon I got in the $1 bins over at Michaels earlier in the day.

Print and Cut Experimenting

I seen a couple people in a few of my yahoo crafting groups talking about the newer feature of Print & Cut from SCAL for our E’s, so I thought I would give it try.  After trying a few different ways that others have posted, I finally figured it out and it turned out pretty good.  K has claimed this “love bug” as her own now.

Littlest Pet Shop Pony Card

I have girlfriend whose daughter is having a b-day party this weekend, and she loves LPS.  So K and I made her a birthday card with one of the little ponies found here .  K picked out which animal to use, which colors to use and then which embossing folders to use.  I cut it out, put the pieces in the folders and let her emboss them.  I then glued them on deco trimmed the edge with my paper cutter.  I think we did a good job.

My first design on SCAL

I was looking for something to play around with and create in SCAL, so I stuck with something simple.  It turned out OK but I wasn’t completely satisfied and will for sure work on it more and add in a cut out into it to give it more character, but this will do for now.
