Paper Gator

This little beauty is amazing! I had heard you could make your own scalloped paper with it SO I bought one to try it out!

It REALLY works! Just remove the pink guides by unscrewing them with a coin. You can make larger scallops with the 3/8" corner rounder. I used the 1/4" rounder.

Not only will it cut chipboard but acrylic sheets as well!!!

Here is a sample I did with an acrylic sheet. For an awesome selection of acrylic sheets...go to Kits 2 Remember

Heidi Swapp Class

Last night I took an amazing class from a wonderful lady, Heidi Swapp. We created an inspiring book titled "To Your Own Heart be True". It is filled with inspiring quotes and pages to put down thoughts and pictures... It is a story about My Life....How I chose to Live it and Why......

I will leave you with one quote from the book and a picture of the project, which hasn't been released yet....

Ingredients 2 a Perfect Card.....

uuhhh, okay.....maybe MY idea of a perfect card isn't the same as others view it. Anyway, here it goes.....

I start with a color/paper/embellishment I LOVE and then create from there. I also see inspiration from magazine covers.

The following card was pretty without anything....BUT....what if I alter it....just a little bit. This is how it turned out.

Now-on THIS card....I really added goodies to it. Take a guess as to how many punches I used!!!

What is your guess??

Hint-Hint-It is a kind of soda.

With this card, I didn't have ribbon to coordinate with the card SO I improvised by cutting a piece of cardstock, running it through the crimper and weaving it within the "Leave It 2 Weaver" punch. CUT-RUN-WEAVE....EZ....

Happy Scrappin'.....
