Welcome to Day two of PaperCraftingWorld.com and CookingWithCricut.com’s first Blog Hop of 2012! Our theme is: “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue!”
If you have arrived here from Michelle’s blog http://www.michelles-crafty-creations.blogspot.com you’re in the right place! If you’re joining us mid-hop, head on over to see Melin at www.CookingWithCricut.com and start at the beginning so you don’t miss any of the wonderful projects the Designers have created!
Our Designers had to use something old from their craft stash, something new (a recent purchase or new technique), something borrowed (an element from a Cricut cut or from a PaperCraftingWorld.com cutting file or digi stamp) and of course, something blue.
Here is what I came up with . . .
I used my OLD cricut cartridge Nifty Fifties for the title I love the glasses on this cut. I BORROWED the patterns from my Imagine cartridge Bubblegum Stripes and used them to fill the title and for all the papers used in the layout. Another Borrowed element in this layout is the glasses my daughter is wearing. Those were my actual glasses from around 3rd or 4th grade. They’re perfect for nerd day.
Here is a close up of the title.
I think the mixture of colors and patterns screams NERD. The BLUE element of my project is the navy in her sweater, the background paper, and in the title. The NEW element of my project is the pictures. I finally got some printed! Whoo Hooo a layout with current pictures on it. That is definitely something new for me. Here is a close up of my little nerd doing her best nerd pose.
Now head on over and see what Felicia has for you at http://www.scrapperinthemaking.blogspot.com
I hope you enjoy our Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, and Something Blue blog hop.
