Center Step Card Blog Hop ~

Hello and welcome to my 1st ever attempt at making a center step card! It only took 3 tries but I think I got it!! If this is new to you too....there's a great picture tutorial here and a video tutorial here.
There is a $20 gift certificate from our hostess up for grabs to Michael's or Joann's (who couldn't use that?) so be sure to comment on all blogs throughout the hop beginning with Ashley!

 Ummm yeah....this is how NOT to do it ~ Had to share my failed attempt I think I got it this time!  Ta Daaaaaa!  I left the misplaced embossing powder on there in hopes of creating a magic pixie dust effect but that didn't go as planned lol  It's not perfect but that gives me a goal to focus on. For best results, I would suggest using a thicker cardstock The witch and moon are from the Celebrate with Flourish Cricut cartridge and cut at 3".  The polka dot paper is from The Paper Studio Four Seasons, the sentiment is Inkadinkadoo Marker Sketch Halloween stamps, Viva…

I used pop dots after 3 layers so the next 3 would stand out a bit.  The super adorable witch digi is a freebie from Sherri Baldy Art She was colored with Sp…

Cut It Up ~ Anything Goes Challenge

Welcome to the very 1st challenge from Cut It Up!! I was so excited to hear about this site that encourages you to create using your die cut machine. My sweet mother gave me a Cricut Expression for my birthday (9/11) last year. I have used it a lot but I do not consider myself an expert by any means! There are many "hit and misses" because the settings differ depending on what type of material (paper, vinyl, fabric) you are using and how detailed the image is. (I have some "cheat sheets" under the "Good to Know" tab). Cut It Up challenges will give me the inspiration to master my machine!!! LOL
This challenge is "Anything Goes" so you can make anything as long as it has a die cut on it. The challenge is open to anyone and runs from September 7-19. There is a prize up for grabs to all who link up their project and some awesome ideas from the design team which you can see here.

My grandson invited me to have cookies and milk....for breakfast....…
