The altering stuff journey continues over at all:http://scrapsofcolor.ning.com/events/that-s-alterable-challenge-2013.
This month we alter cans. Yup, cans. Soup cans, craft paint cans, veggie cans. Any kind of can.
I decided to try out one of the new stencils that I received in the mail this morning that my friend Sharon was kind enough to send to me. She has been cutting them on her Cricut with her latest cartridge buy. I can tell that she's having a really good time making them, can't you? LOL
And I can't wait to try them all!
This is the can that I altered
Products used: soup can, gesso, texture paste, patterned paper, lace and stencil
This is the stencil that I used
Now I've got to say....I've been doing really good not buying a bunch of craft items that I don't really need...and trying to use what I've got....but being able to cut my own stencils sounds great...and seeing how much fun Sharon is having and how great they're turning out - realllllllly makes me want this cartridge!
I'll be good until I've used all of the ones that Sharon sent to me and the ones that I already own that haven't even been taken out of their packages...but I don't know how long I can hold out. Besides, remember that I told you that my Cricuts and eBosser are collecting dust? Maybe getting this cartridge will make me pull them out and actually USE them! LOL
Thanks Sharon for thinking of me....and your subtle and unaware hint to buy this cartridge....
Anyway, until next time
