Christmas Blog Hop Day 2!
Welcome back to day two of the
Ho Ho Ho Christmas
Blog hop by Circut Circle members.
I am stop 6. The hop starts here at Josy's Craft Corner.
You should have arrived from Mandy's Scrap.
The next stop is Scrappidy Ashy.
Sorry if any of you had troubles viewing my blog
yesterday. The black background was really
cute but did not seem to want to load all the time
so that left my white text disappearing. LOL!
So a change!
I think one of my favorite carts is Forever Young.
Once upon a time I took courses in Fashion Design
so just love the look of the fashion dolls but the hidden
jewel of this cartridge are the purses. Oh my they are
all cute! The first ones cut purses with cutouts but if
you look at the very back of the cartridge book you
will find all of the purse shapes without cutouts.
This one is my fave!
There is a secret to embossing on these. Cut two! I cut the front
and back panels off the second one and emboss then glue over
the top of the first assembled purse. This also strengthens the
purse as well. This purse was cut on a 12 x12 sheet of cardstock
and set fit to page which I believe comes up to be 6 1/4".
The sweet little penquin is from Simply Charmed and cut at
2 1/2". The Chill Out is from the same cartridge and cut at 1/2".
The snowflake is from the new Winter Lace Seasonal cart.
It is cut at 3".
To slightly tilt the penquin towards the center I glue dotted
down her right side and then put two pop dots stacked on top
of each other under her left side. This will tilt her inwards.
Thanks for stopping by!
