Yay. Made time for crafting, at last!
At last I have made time to do some crafting. Been using the "super-duper craft machine that I wanted but didn't need", which is a Cricut Expression to everyone else.
I have the SCAL software and enjoy making files, although I am not very good at it. Today I wanted to make a word book for Maggie's leaving 'card'. I cut the letters in black card and then a layer of coloured paper; there will also be a layer of plain white or cream paper on the back of each letter so that others at work can write messages to Maggie.
I have just got SCAL2 and so far I am loving all the extra stuff that can be done in it. I like that i was able to do all these pages as layers as I was able to make sure that they were all the same size and didn't have to make them all as separate files.
I've also had a g0 at making some "library card holders" for the Document:2010 challenge which is on Shimelle's blog (http://www.shimelle.com/) and also on the UKscrappers website (http://www.ukscrappers.co.uk). It's a long time since I've done any scrapbooking so am looking forward to finding time to do this challenge - never done a challenge before either so just hoping I don't get bored three months in. It's a monthly challenge so not too taxing?!
Next time I am going to try to figure out how to load Scut and SVG files here, so that I can share with anyone who wants them.
'Til then. xx
