November Provo Craft & CPS 91

November 20, 2008

Yikes- long time no post!! Life has just been busy like normal, and I haven't had a whole lot to share until today! In my last post, we were in Sheridan, and I was hanging out with my mom and waiting to see if Josh got an elk. Alas- the elk seemed to be in hiding this time around and he didn't get one. But, he did get some gorgeous landscape photographs! Those will be fun to scrapbook on his "hunting" page for this year!

Now onto some projects! This is my card for sketch 91 at the CPS blog this week. We were sponsored by Kandi Corp. again, and some of us used stamps, while others used the hot fix applicator and hot fix crystals or brass adornments. I ended up with this cute pumpkin stamp and sentiment!

Next up, I have a couple of my November projects for Provo Craft to show. My first assignment was to use the Graphically Speaking Cricut cartridge. This is such a great cartridge... full of amazing cuts! I cut the scalloped rectange that is on the card from this cartridge, along with the "me & you" cut, and the "best of friends" cut. I think I am going to do something similar for my co-workers for Christmas...just with a more Christmasy theme!

My next assignment was to use the Cricut Markers on a project. The main purpose of the Cricut markers is to draw an outline of a cut, and then cut it out, so it basically has a border. I decided to play around with them a little bit, and actually draw a part of the title directly on the layout. After a few tries on a peice of scrap cardstock....I found the right place to start the marker. It felt a little stark white, so I decided to use the markers to outline and cut a few of the letters from striped paper to add some color to the title. I think it turned out pretty darn cute! (Not to is a pretty cute little girl too!)

Happy Thursday,


  1. WOW, serious WOW every time Lea. LOVE how you work color, you amaze me!!!

  2. Hey Lea! Love your stuff, and can't wait to see the tinkerbell stuff too! :) I was wondering where else you submit your cards too, besides CARDS magazine.. I only started submitting mine two months ago, and have been lucky enough to get a few cards for each issue picked up.. But I'm wondering what other mags there are?? Thanks a bunch!

  3. Oh, I want a cricut!! Off to write my letter to santa ;)

    Your projects are scrumptious!!


  4. These are great, Lea! I've been thinking of buying Graphically Speaking, and you aren't helping my resolve! ;-D

  5. Beautiful projects Lea! I adore my Cricut! I love the beautiful bright colors you use.

  6. yummy--I love it all Lea!! You do such amazing work!

  7. Great fall card, Lea! The bling adds the perfect touch to it!

    I love all the projects you created for PC, too! I just got the Graphically Speaking cartridge, and your projects are so inspiring! I also love the cupcake layout! It's so cool how you got the markers to write in the perfect spot (it would probably take me hours to figure that out! LOL!)!

    Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Wow! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the cherry card! I'm definitely going to have to look into that cartridge! I have saw it, but didn't take a second glance since I thought it only have Hello Kitty images.....Thanks for the comment and great suggestions!
