What I Worked on This Weekend

So I got to spend a little time crafting but didn't get much finished. It was one of those weekends where life got in the way of fun. My sister asked me if I could make a few items for her sell at her Holiday Open House she is having in a few weeks. So, I decided to see if I could make a Christmas Wordbook. I have only done one word book before (again not completed). I designed this one from scratch using my Cricut Design Studio software and Plantin Schoolbook and Storybook Cricut Cartridges. I was able to get the image cut out of some recycled cereal boxes and covered with Christmas paper. I hope to get it done next weekend.

I also wanted to thank Dana Kruse for her kind words she posted on her blog. A week or so ago she asked on the Cricutlovers Yahoo Group I belong to,  if someone could help her out and cut out a tag that she designed in Design Studio. She has been recovering from a leg injury and was not able to do it herself. I volunteered to give it a try. I didn't end up doing the tag as she invisioned but as I saw it when I looked at the file. To me the tag said Snowflake so that is how I did it. She loved it. To check out the tag and see some of Dana's other work check out her blog HERE.
