Well, fellow scrapers, my creativity and skills are being utilized to the max this week. A week from Saturday my brother is getting married. (yeah! :) So far I've created the wedding invites, shower invites, and gift bag tags. And so far, so good. My final project is a piece of artwork the couple would like to give to someone as a gift. It’s a quote – a profound thought – that I am (hopefully) going to compose on paper and in frame. I thought my new cricut was the perfect tool to bring this concept to life.

But at this moment I’m running into some walls. Can I just say, first of all, that I don’t know that ANY of the cricut cartridges approach masculinity? J And that’s kind of what I’m looking for. So I have the Opposites Attract cartridge I borrowed from Christine (thanks! ;) and I’m working with it. I know I can’t connect the letters into words unless I have software to do so (which I don’t), so I’m hoping the upright form of the letters will do.

I guess I’d better get back to it. I’ll definitely post the result. Well, maybe. J For sure, though, when I get this done, I’ll post the wedding invite and other coordinating creations. Glad I got a little more stalling in. My perfectionism/stall tactics are strong right now and I need to shove them to the side – full speed ahead!!


  1. I know this probably won't help, but..... my friend (who has over 50 cricut cartridges) has a saying cut from cricut vinyl spelt out on the wall of her living room and framed with a frame. She has attached the adhesive vinyl straight to the wall and then just hung a completely empty frame around it. It looks awesome. She has placed different emphasis on different words by cutting them in different fonts. Her inspiration was the different vinyl wall art you can get from Stampin Up. Maybe you should check the Stampin Up home decor catalog out online. HTH. Good luck!

  2. Thanks!! I love that idea. For this particular project, I printed the message out on some amazing paper that I found. It looks pretty good and while I thought that I should add embossing, I've left it alone. I've had good responses from people about it. I have some more work to do, but when I finish I will share!
