Interactive Sesame Street Birthday ~ Cricut Layout




I can't tell you how I have struggled and labored with the complex layered Disney and Sesame Street Cricut Cartridges. Donna has the magic touch with Sesame cuts x 2!  She makes it look so easy; and, she gets perfect results. Here is her birthday layout for her twins.  She originally used her cuts for table and cake decorations for the twins' 2nd birthday and then repurposed the cuts for scrapbook layouts. The 3 x 3 pockets hold mini albums for more pictures and journaling.......

A little bit of Pretty........

I tried working with backgrounds and the advanced options Blogger offers last night.  I am not sure what I think of the blog.......... could be way too distracting, but it was fun lookin' at all the graphics Shabby Blogs has to offer.

When I started really giving Shabby Blogs a look, I realized the most of the graphics offered were created by some of my favorite Digi Scrap Artists.......... Thanks so much, Ladies!

Buying Copic Groups

The following links are to Copic Color Groups people have shared to make blending with Copic Pens easy and a breeze to buy colors that work together:

Copics......... Copics....... Copics....... Where to Start???

I bought my Copics a few years ago and there really wasn't much help available for them.  A wonderful lady over at SCS had just completed her collection of Copic Pens and she sent me the Copic Chart completed with each color.......  The colors shown on websites often arent true to color.  I knew enough about Copics to be dangerous, so i spent days on the net tracking down color group information so I could start my collection.

Five Copic Lessons from Michelle Houghton:
Coming soon......... how to choose your copic color groups...... the resources I used.... Printable charts that make choosing groups easy, even on the internet!
