I'm gettin' ready for a stampede! Cricut Stampede that is!!!!
My Spring Break has started off well! I just returned from a trip to Atlanta. Now I am back and in full swing preparing for the Cricut Stampede this weekend. Cricut Circle members make calling cards to trade at swarms. I designed mine a couple of weeks ago and finally collected all the papers, cut everything out and put them together.
But I knew I wouldn't, or rather couldn't, stop there. I decided to make a name plate and a placemat for my table at the swarm. Here are the details.
Everyday Cricut (Circle Exclusive) - circle bug head, name plate base, "o" in Robin
50 States - Texas
Sugar and Spice Lite - scaalloped square
George and Basic Shape - triangles
Base Camp - Name
Since my MB name and blog name is Delta Scrapper, I had to include that in my design in some kind of way. So I created a delta symbol by layering two triangles, one slightly smaller than the other, on my Gypsy to make the symbol. I also wanted to add a feminine base so I cut some scalloped squares to lay on top of the 3x3 base. I added a small Texas and bug head to finish the design.
Here's a trick to make sure everything fits - I put a 3x3 square on my Gypsy to use as my card base template. I then tested all the layers on this template to "see" how the card would look assembled.
I love the Cricut Everyday cart! I was thumbing through the book when I saw the name plate. I new I had to make one of these for my table at the Stampede. I pretty much continued my theme from the calling cards on to this project. I modified the card base a little by hiding the slits that would have held the blue card in place and making the bug head bigger. I also slid the bug head around the Texas so it could hug it. I then layered the delta on top and glued it on the edge of the card.
I welded the letters of my name together on my Gypsy (it is 2 different fonts) and layered a green bug head on top of the white one.
Everything is bigger in Texas! So I made a bigger version of all the elements in my projects for a placemat. I laminated it so any glue or ink won't stick to it.
I can't wait to display these items on my table at the Stampede. Look for me and my goodies!!! Later Crafty People!!!!!
