Tutorial: Darling Dress Embellishment (Yeay!)

Helloooo!  Hope everyone is having a great day.  We have a new tutorial for today to make a “Darling Dress” embellishment.  The inspiration for this came from a set of cut-able files shaped like fancy underwear made by KLDezign her cut files for MTC/SCAL/2 are sooo awesome.  Go visit her and comment on some of her awesome stuff! (AFTER you read this awesome tutorial!) So, the original card that I made looks like this:


I used it on a wedding card, but I wanted to show a little versatility, so the tutorial pictures are for a party dress!

Technique: Loverly Layered Image (card)

     Hello cropstars!  This technique is pretty sweet if I do say so myself.  I actually got this idea off home shopping (the best not-kept secret of crafting).  A company was selling this card-making kit that enabled you to make these cool layered floral images for cards and scrapbooking pages.  Well, I’m not going to mention the company because frankly I can’t remember the name.  But, suffice to say that the kit was…overpriced IMO.  I sat there and thought to myself:

Self, you can make these for FREE.

So, I set out on a path of utter craft discovery.  And now, I will share my findings with you lovely SQs.

Today we are making this card:

I have decided to put all my tutorials on a different blog.  Some of them are very long and I don’t want to clog your dashboard with a single post.  FYI- Clicking the link with redirect you (but it should open in another tab/window).

Birthday Card : Make The Cut!

Hello, I’m REALLY going to start putting things on this blog (it’s hard when I have no followers and therefore no motivation)

So, today is not a tutorial. I am posting a card I made with my Cricut and the Make The Cut! software. I LOOOOOVE MTC. If you have a bug and don’t have it – you are missing out!

Here’s the card I made for the Birthday card Challenge:


Almost everything on here is scraps from my scrap tote. There is one lavender ribbon and two gel pens: a metallic blue that outlines Birthday and a golden glitter that outlines the flames (they are very difficult to see in the picture).

So, now you see how fab the creation is…GO! download Make The Cut!

And remember……it’s GOOD to be queen!
