You are....April Blog Hop

Pin It
I seriously cannot believe it's already April...not only does that mean:
  • There are only 2 months of school left for my kiddos...
  • There are only 2 months 'till Little Miss Baby Taylor arrives...
  • There's only a week 'till Easter is here...
  • AND...it's time to hop around through 50 Consultants' blogs and see what CUTE and ADORABLE things they've created using this month's SOTM - You Are....
If you've come from the blog of the very talented Melissa Laverty, you're on the right track...

Here's what the stamp set looks like all pretty and new...

Here's what I've done with it....a 5"x7" card using the colors (Grey Wool, Sorbet, Sunset, Lagoon, Creme Brulee, Sweet Leaf and White Daisy) from the upcoming NSMonth Dotty for You paper (more details coming SOON!!!)...
The banners on the front are cut using the A/P Cartridge - Card Feature of image found on pg 68 and the size dial set to 1".  This measurement is the only way I could get the banners long enough for me to stamp the Cool, Fun and Amazing but it was still a little too wide for me so after I cut them in the Cricut, I put them in the paper trimmer and trimmed 1/8" off of each side thus making the finished size 3/4"...if you are like me and want just enough cardstock on the Cruicut mat to cut out the image, trim your paper to 1-1/2" x 7" and that should do the trick!!!  The White Daisy focal points were cut using the image found on pg 47 and the size dial set to 4-1/4" and another cut at 4-3/4".
------------------------------
here's a closeup of the focal point...
I used our NEW Baker's Twine Neutral Assortment...{LOVE} this stuff!!!
----------------------------
here's the inside...
I used the same image as found on the front just cut to a size 6-1/2" then lined up some scratch pieces of Lagoon and Creme Brulee, adhered them to the bottom and cut around the shape.  I could have done this process with the A/P Cartridge as well but I had these scraps laying around from the banners and they were a perfect fit!
-------------------------------
Thanks for hopping by...don't forget to hop on over to Wendy's Blog and see what she has to share...I'm sure it's gonna be CUTE!
