Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I have been playing with laces and ribbons trying to work on shabby chic again. Inspired by the Challenge 177 "Oh Baby!" at The Shabby Tea Room, this is my results for the baby card. I do not need a baby card, but wanting to play along, I chose soft pink dots and floral papers. Those papers are from DCWV Fresh Floral Stack. Papers are slightly distressed and torn! Card measures 5" x 6 1/2" cut from white card stock. White papers are Colorbok and Bazzill.

Cricut Cartridge is Mother's Day 2010. The baby carriage is cut 2.5". Tiny white rick rack is added to the carriage.
Spellbinders - Eyelet Circles. The largest size is used for the white mat. Pink ribbon is used around the mat and for the tiny bow.
Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots used on the eyelet circle mat.
Martha Stewart - Swirling Lace corner punch on the pink dot paper.
Lace, lace heart, and flower are from my stash! Tiny flowers on the wheels are Jolee's Boutique embellishments.

My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 116 Back to School

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today is the start of a new and fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! It is my turn to choose the theme for the challenge. With the start of a new school year fast approaching for my grandkids, I began thinking of school projects. Challenge 116 is Back to School! Include a school bus or school house! It must be school related!

For my project I chose to make a 12" x 12" scrapbook page! The paper pack is DCWV School Days. The white background sheet was trimmed down 1/4" on each side and layered on the red dot paper. I cut out the middle section of the red dot paper and used that part for the border cuts on the photo area. Just a way of using more of the paper! The sketch is my play with a Page Maps Nov. 2011 sketch.

Cricut Cartridges:
Elegant Edges - Page 25 Border on shift cut 2.25" from the solid red paper. Page 47 Border on shift cut 1.25" and the second one cut at .50" from the red dot paper.
Nate's ABC's - Page 22 Bus is cut 1.5"
Other supplies include the yellow Baker's Twine on the photo mat and 3rd grade is a sticker from the stash. I started scrapbooking before Cricut so now I have two drawers of stickers that are being forgotten. Time to use some! 
After the first day of school photo is placed on the photo mat, my grandson will print his name under the photo. A perfect way to preserve his handwriting at that age!
