Yesterday I had a really bad day. My Dh is STILL gone on a backpacking trip and has been gone since Tues. morning and of course I'm having all sorts of technical difficulties with my desktop computer, my air conditioning and most disturbing, my cat box. Yes, you read that right, my CAT BOX. I have a litter robot which sort of looks like R2D2 from Star Wars. The cats climb into what looks like a space pod to potty and when they're done the top rotates sift the litter to deposit the contents into the base and then returns to it's original positon, except now NOTHING HAPPENS. Scooping out of this contraption is no mean feat either. WHAT A PITA!
Sorry if this is TMI for all of you non-animal lovers, but I'm really getting frustrated and had to vent. Anyway, I miraculously managed to make a set of note cards using several of the new Cuttlebug folders, some gorgeous paper from K&Co, and the Blackletter Cricut cartridge. I was amazed at how the folders coordinated so well with the paper designs.
The first uses the Victoria folder. this is the one that got me started because the embossing almost matched the paper exactly!
The second uses Textile Textures, not a new folder but definitely a great one.
The third uses Morroccan Screen. I'm really loving these new folders. The images seem more crisp and I love the variety.
Finally I used my Stampin'Up label punch and my Labels 1 Nesties for the monogram layers and popped them for dimension. These were cards were really simple (which was about all I could handle yesterday), but I think they turned out quite elegantly just the same.
