Outline Classroom Hello


I made another quick card today using an alphabet stamp.  For this card I stamped the letters from the Outline Classroom Alphabet and Bluebird Exclusive Ink. I stamped the letters on the polka dot paper from Something Fierce Paper Packet and then cut them out by hand.

When you order this stamp set (and all other alphabet sets) this month, you will save 35%!  That is a great deal!    This set includes uppercase letters, numbers and punctuation.  There is also a coordinating Solid Classroom Alphabet stamp.



In case you missed it, here is another card I made recently using an alphabet stamp set:

You Are Here Cricut & Love with All the Trimmings


Today's cards use cuts from the You Are Here Cricut Collection.  Confession: I bought a new Cricut, but have been too intimidated by it to try it out!  I had an older Cricut that I found very difficult to use.  I also have another brand electronic cutter, but it never seems to cut correctly on the first try so I end up wasting more paper than I use.  But I really wanted to be able to ALL of CTMH's products so I decided to upgrade and try again.
Image from Cricut.com
I started researching the Cricut Explore Air 2.  I put it in my Amazon shopping cart. It stayed there for weeks.  Then one day I went to buy something from Amazon and noticed the price had dropped.  I took that as a sign and went for it!  I was so excited when it arrived that I immediately opened the box and found the perfect spot in my craft room.  And then it say for a couple weeks until I worked up the courage to try it out.  I'm so glad I did!  I LOVE it!  I've only used it 4 or 5 times, but it is so easy to use!  And I haven't wasted any paper yet!  Every cut has been perfect.  I have a lot more planned for this little machine.


For both cards I used the house image from the You Are Here Cricut Collection.  For the first card the house is cut in Mint and the trim in White Daisy. The Charcoal (light side) circle was cut from the Cricut basic shapes section.  It's kind of difficult to see but I stamped an all over pattern with the snowflake in the Love with All the Trimmings stamp set on the mint background piece.


I then decided the card needed a little bit (or a lot) more bling so I re-cut the card, this time using White Daisy for the house and Silver Glitter paper for the trim.  On the second card I still used a Charcoal circle and Mint background, but this time I used the darker side of the Charcoal and the light Mint.  I think I like the second color combination better.


If you are in my Facebook group and want to make this card, look for the link in the VIP Facebook Group.  If you are not yet one of my customers, place an order at lisak.ctmh.com and I will send you an invite!
