Strut Your Cuts Week 2

Hi all,

Wow! Week 2 and I am still sticking to the challenge of using ALL those cartridges I own. All the people who entered the week 1 challenge did such a fine job. The projects entered are here on Mandy's blog and Facebook page.

So, to week 2 ....

Cartridges are:

  1. Cuttin' Up
  2. Graphically Speaking
  3. Create a Critter
  4. hmmm ... drat, cannot find the list, but did not have the last two cartridges anyway.

The sign is on plastic board (will find out the real name of it tomorrow) and I used vinyl for all the images. Graphically speaking gave me the coffee cup and frame and Cuttin' Up was for the words.

I have to admit, though,  that I have only completed the first part of my project. Hubby built Miss J a cubbyhouse a while ago (his own design and handywork)


This week Miss J decided she would like to make her cubbyhouse a cafe.... excellent! An opportunity to make something with this weeks carts.... Unfortunately I was distracted this week by a quick trip to Margaret River with the family .... oh woe is me, I had to go to a bunch of wineries and yummy foodie places .... boo hoo :) :) :) and thus my full project did not get finished.

So, I am also planning on using my Create a Critter cart and the Graphically speaking cart for an open/closed sign with flair. Stay tuned. .... for a little while longer ... as we are having Christmas number 2 today. My husband and my brother-in-law both got promotions in December, unfortunately it meant they both had to work Christmas, so this is our second go around at the turkey and ham, champagne etc... ohhhhh yummmmmmy!

I will get back to you shortly. Hope you are all having a great January so far.
