Good day all! It has been a beautiful day, mild temps, clear blue skies but some quite strong winds. Fortunately they have calmed down as the afternoon winds down. My husband and I spent the afternoon putting things away, packing up the outdoor chairs, cleaning the grill and basically getting ready to bring in the slides and get on the road tomorrow. The sad part is leaving the friends I've made over the winter and I had to pack up the Cricut and crafting stuff while we are on the road.
I heard a wonderful tutorial that Capadia Designs made on Cricut Design Studio Hide, Select and Contour - I've attached the link here, http://capadiadesigns.blogspot.com/2009/07/video-hide-selected-contour.html. It really was very helpful in learning how to cut an item that has several layers and only cutting once in all the colors you want.
I am still working on getting pictures of the cards I've made on my blog, and changing a few things around. I am not very computer savvy so need some help on these new things. I'm adding more pictures that I've taken of Grand Canyon, Sedona, blooming cactus and other beautiful sights along the way. I hope you enjoy them.
I am married, retired from the Federal Government 5 years ago and my husband and I love to travel around the country in our RV. We are currently on an extended trip to AZ and western states. I started to make cards a couple of years ago and it quickly became my favorite thing to do. My husband says all he has to do is look in my craft room and that's where he'll find me. My interests have grown from cardmaking to decoupage, altered art, vintage, mixed media, and collage. I am also very interested in learning jewelry, wire wrapping and polymer clay. There is so much to do and not enough time.
