More playing with the SCAL,and SVG files

The first flower I made using the cricut ink and then cutting, the second I cut and rolled the flower a bit and the 3rd is just a poinsettia with brads. Designs are freebies from google searching.

Playing with the SCAL, Cricut and the Ink...

Here are the results of messing around with my SCAL,cricut and the ink cartridges. The fish is a freebie I found through google somewhere.

A Small Chipboard Purse Finish

Another small chipboard I made for a friend. I might have to make another for me I liked it so much. I used a $1 album from Micheals and paper is DCWV All Dressed Up. My friend didn't want any embellishments just the basics.

My first sewing project-A Jean Purse

For some reason people find it funny that I can cross stitch and not know how to sew. My DH knows how to sew better than me and still has his little sewing pouch the Army gave him lol. Now that I have 2 sewing machines in the house I am determind to learn how to use them.

In the meantime I tried a little sewing by hand tonight (with the help of youtube) and my 8yr old couldn't be happier with her new purse. My Nicholas wants to know if I will make him one. I told him mommy will have to learn how to make a backpack because boys don't carry purses. He was not so pleased with me. My mom made one of these for me when I was real little and now I know I'm getting old when things start coming back into style for my kids.

An Independence Day Album

I started this before the house remodel and finally got a clear spot to do some scrapbooking. This is my 1st 4th of July scrapbook finish and I think I like it lol. It amazes me how a simple $0.70 board book can be made into a memory. I added a little bit of cookout and watermelon paper to it because what is the 4th without those 2 things. I will add the pics I took of the fireworks soon!

A Small Quaker Finish

Another fun quaker stitch. I think I will make this one into an ornament like the others, or maybe a scissor fob. I used DMC Variations to make this freebie from My Aunts Attic blog.
