I can hardly wait to get pictures printed of my sweet grandchildren working in my dad's (Grandpa's) vegetable garden! They were totally amazed at the food that actually came from the ground that Grandpa had 'farmed a garden in'!! (in the words of Maddie Claire!!) It was so special to capture the happy wonder on their faces and to hear their giggles as they dug fresh Irish Potatoes, picked Squash, Cucumbers and Tomatoes!! Oh the pride they felt! SOOOO, this Brushed Paper Pack will be used to showcase those pictures!
Following a cutting guide that I purchased from a CTMH sister consultant, Susan Williams, I tore into my Brushed Paper Pack!! It was so hard because it is so pretty and I've been hoarding it! Susan has such a talent for designing layouts and cards and creating cutting guides that use only the basic supplies - these appeal to those crafters without a large inventory of stamps, inks, accessories or those who don't own a Cricut machine. Well I DO own the Cricut Explore, all the ink pads and a good inventory of our beautiful My Acrylix stamps BUT I LOVE LOVE LOVE Susan's simple yet stunning designs!! Once your cutting is all done, putting the layouts together is pretty quick and the results are awesome, especially after you get your cherished photos on them!
I got all the paper cut and in piles according to layouts (there are 6 included in this custom workshop). But there are also designed cards with a cutting guide so I decided to put those together first since I needed a couple to mail out! They're simple but beautiful!
And here's the first card -- I made one with top fold and one with side fold. Simple yet lovely!!
