I have a crafty story to share. In recent months I have had an increasingly hard time finding replacement blades for my Cricuit paper trimmer (green one in the photos). If Amazon doesn't have it, then it must be hard to find. I thought that the internal blade I did buy from Amazon would fit, but of course it didn't since it was a different model than mine.
So I turned to Cricut's customer service to see if they had the correct blades for my trimmer. They did not, but they were VERY kind and GENEROUS to send me a BRAND NEW trimmer (white one in photos). I was floored! I've never had such a responsive customer service experience. The customer service rep was very prompt and courteous. And I am really loving this trimmer.
You can see from the pictures that the numbers are crisp with that black on white. There is also a defined 1 inch on the right of the trimmer, which is great because that is something I always struggled with on my old trimmer.
I hope you have had a crafty filled weekend. Have a great week!
Thanks for stamping by.
Another project share. In addition to the Mother's day cards, I also had a few wedding cards to make for May. I kept these one layer, but of course, I had to add in some heat embossing. What also helped was that I put pattern papers to work! The papers are My Mind's Eye - Fancy that. I previously had a sheet of this from a card kit, but was able to find a full assorted pack from Paper Source a few months ago.
I heat embossed in gold and thought I was done, but of course, I thought splatter would give it a little more interest. I trimmed the panels with a stitched rectangle die and one with a plain rectangle.
Life started to creep into my crafting and blogging. Should be back to regular updates soon.
For Mother's Day I created a watercolor panel using the stamp set Organic Blooms by Mama Elephant. I heat embossed in gold and used my Windsor and Newton's Cotman's watercolors for coloring. I used a sentiment from Hero Arts in gold pigment ink on black card stock. I notched out a flag ends and adhered the sentiment with a tiny attacher. I put my panels on a cream/ivory card base.
