For this week’s challenge at Cut it Up, we’re going old school. What does that mean? You can use an old technique, an old image, an old cartridge, old papers or embellishments . . . You get the idea!
So here’s my project:
How is it old school? First of all, I used the Rock Princess Cricut cartridge, released in 2012. Instead of designing on my Gypsy, I just used the cartridge itself. Haven’t done that in years! Another old school technique was that I copied the project featured in the manual. Each Cricut cartridge handbook has one project showcased in the front that you can start with to get accustomed to the various features on the cartridge.
For my old materials: The ribbon and 3D foam squares are years old, and I got the Liquid Glass that I used to hold the phrase against the glitter paper from my initial “start up your Close to My Heart business” in 2012.
This is a congratulations on your ultrasound card. The recipient and her husband found out the sex of their baby. Can you guess? 🙂 I’ve been dying to use this adorable cut ever since I got that cartridge! Isn’t it just too cute??
The stamp inside is So Happy for You, an Itty Bitty stamp by Unity Stamp Company. I love the image. It can be used for a boy or a girl; just change the ink! And the sentiment can be used for a whole slew of occasions.
Our sponsor this time around is Newton’s Nook, and the prize is a $20 store credit! When you link up your project, don’t forget to tell us how it’s Old School!!
