Second cut using the SCAL

Wohoo I finally made something with my SCAL program. I made a name tag for my cubical but I have no idea what size I made it. I also added the shadow feature. Not very impressive but it is a start. I used some paper I had laying around and MS punch for the butterfly and used SU scallop punch for the flowers. I cut the shapes for the flowers with an old phone book I had laying around. You have to put a piece of card stock down first and then you can cut three flowers at one time. TFL!

Softball player

My friend Denise asked if I could make her some softball girls for her daughter's end of the year party so this is what I came up with. I used EDPD and cut the girls out at 5". I used CTMH paper and a new paper called coordinations when you rub it with sand paper the color comes thru. Pretty cool huh? I hope all the girls like their little players

I made this 10 inch player for Logan for his bday party to match the bags I made earlier. I used the everyday paper dolls again and HL paper and CTMH papers and ink for the sponged edges. I plan on making him a centerpiece and will post it tomorrow.

Okay so I bought the scal last week cause I heard so many cool things about it and have seen what it can do in person.....OMG! talk about feeling dumb. I know nothing and was getting very frustrated and screaming and cussing(sorry Adam) and just going crazy. Well needless to say after watching a few videos I figured out how to use the trace function and finally was able to save something. I think I sprouted up a million gray hairs in the process. This is what I saved and cut out. I think I cut it at 4 inches and used HL paper and CTMH inks for the edges. Maybe some nice ladies like Pam and Mel(hint, hint) will help me figure this program out before they admit me into Rusk State Hospital. Thanks for looking. I have to go spit the soap out of my mouth for all the cussing I did.

Treat bags for Logan

I made these Yankee treat bags for a lady's son at work for his 4th bday party. He is a huge Yankee fan. I cut them out with the everyday paperdolls at 5". I used CTMH paper and inks. I also used a Martha Stewart punch and attached them to a small white bag. Thanks for looking.

Rose bandwagan

Okay so I decided to join the rose making band wagon and made these using the last flower in the forever young cart. I cut three flowers out at 3". Pretty good for my first try and very easy to make.

4th Treat bags for ladies at work

I made this with the scallop from storybook on pg 50 using the accent blackout cut at 3". I sponged the edges with CTMH white and used versamark for the firecrackers. I used stamp sets Celebrate and July 2009. Thanks for looking.
