I designed this for a friends wedding, she was chuffed to bits with it, I think they looked quite effective and would be lost without my cricut.... best bit of kit I ever bought and SCAL is second!!

one of my cut out cards for a wedding recently, quite subdued for me eh!!

I can't believe I'm putting this on but its gotta be worth a larf, my lovely DD was 30 in June and I decided in my wisdom to make her a cake, the idea was to have a 3 tier cake one tier per decade, the items on the layers are some of the things she loved in that decade, I decided to get the people made as I realised I would make a huge bodge up if I tried, (the cake was bad enough!) anyway it looks dreadful but she thought it was ok, she loved He Man when she was little and of course her Teddy (he still sits on her bed) so that was the first layer, the second was taken up with.... yes you guessed it, FOOTY all my hopes and dreams of a ballerina gone!! the Mini is the exact model of her first car, and finally she's now plod and the BMW is the best car she's had, she loved that car! sadly gone now and replace with a teeny weeny Toyota....
the cake may have looked dreadful but tasted pretty good according to everyone who had some, and boy was there a lot, it was a huge cake!!


this is a card for my nieghbour Carol, (92) she had a dreadful flood in her bungalow just after Christmas and still hasn't moved back in! fingers crossed she should be back by next weekend so thought I'd do her a Welcome Home card, this is a card I've done a couple of times but as I sold the cricut cart with it on I have done this one completely from scratch in SCAL, I'm actually quite chuffed with this one as I made the shape for the roof myself in Inkscape, very simple I know but it's my first attempt, and then I realised I could give it more definition by adding the little cuts, I figured out I could do this in SCAL, I am very pleased with myself as I've had SCAL for years and only just figured out how to use it better.... doh

Carols fav colour is lilac so I've done this for her, I even managed to cut out window frames to make it more dimentional, the first picture isnt a very good one tho, anyone out there reading this who has any doubts about SCAL..... GET IT!!
