Shrinky Dinks

Over the weekend, Jami and I were scrapn' together. How fun is that? Okay, I didn't get really anything done, but we sure had a great time together. As our last project for the day, we took shrinky dink material and cut out the letter "J" (using QuicKutz Monograms) and then colored using Tim Holtz alcohol inks and then we made a charm out of it. I need to find a necklace and use a jumper on it for the project to be complete. For now, DMC embroidery floss works.

February 2009 Cricut Club

I was inspired by this project by my boys. The two older boys both have a special young lady in their life, so I took pictures of each couple on Valentine's Day. How sweet is that? For the most part, Cricut Club in Febuary was a hit. I had procrastinated posting anything because there were a few negative comments to this project. I have since learned to take the good with the bad. :) The comments were not actually bad, just truthful. So I am thankful for the honesty. The thing for me to always remember is to try to make more choices available for my students. A great learning experience. So I have changed how I do things a bit as you will see with upcoming posts.
So here is the long awaited February 2009 Cricut Club project. The cartridges used are StoryBook, New Arrival and A Walk in My Garden.
