A Quilted Christmas - Featured Cartridge of the Month

Sorry this post is so late in the month, but I have been very busy!!!

This month I am featuring the A Quilted Christmas Cartridge by Cricut. I bought it last year and never used it so I thought what better time than to use it now for some Christmas Cards.

This card I cut out  Santa3 on page 32 at 3" and MrsClaus on page 32, also at 3". I used a  Recollections pre-cut card, size is 5 in by 6.5 in. The Merry Christmas sentiment is one that I found at Wal-Mart, can't remember the brand as it was out of the wrapper.

More Copic Practice

Here are a few pictures that I have been using as practice to learn how to use my Copic markers. Now it is time to put my practice to work. I will be making Christmas Cards using some of the stamps you see you here. Still getting the hang of shading, but I think with practice it will get better!

My Scrapbbook Expo 2013 Haul

I attended the Scrapbook Expo this year and this is what I purchased. I went there looking for the Copic markers in the Skin Tone Colors and found a few others as well. I had already purchased the Sea and Sky set from Hobby Lobby a little while back and I have fallen in love with coloring again.
