Been working hard.....

On my chipboard albums. They are 4x6 *okie thinks she mentioned this in a previous post, but isn't really sure as she has been huffin stickles all evenin* and there isn't a lot of room to work with but I think they are coming along nicely. I am using a DCWV Christmas Stack for the base papers. All four of the albums have different papers but all the cuts are gonna be the same. I know I posted the gingerbread but I couldn't leave well enough alone and had to add more stickles.

Here is a little poem about stickles...

My Lovely Stickles
Ahh my lovely stickles
how you make my projects shine
Oh it just tickles
to see that shimmering line!!

*okay it is official.......okie HAS lost her mind*

Anyway here are what the pages are going to look like.....well not all of them but these pages anyway *okie is beginning to think she needs to stop posting after 10pm as she doesn't even know if she makes sense*. This is the gingerbread the photo to see it bigger.

This is the page with the stocking and Christmas tree. I used stickles OF COURSE on the tree but then added some Robin's Nest embellies for ornaments. I think they turned out nice. For the stocking I did run it through the cuttlebug using the D'vine swirls folder. For the cuff I used some fuzzy stuff that Grammat sent me. I dotted the swirls with a white pen and also added some silver Robin's Nest embellies on the cuff.

Here is a close up shot of the stocking...remember to click the pic if you want to see more detail. The fuzzy stuff cut great with the cricut. It didn't cut through the backing but it did cut through the fuzzy stuff just fine. The paper is some Mica card stock I got at the big stamp sale, not sure if I bought this color in the spring or this fall, or the other night during stamp club....but that is where it came from. I know I saw some at Michaels the last time I was there, think it was in 12x12 sheets.

My progress at this point is that I have all four albums inked. I have all the cuts ready for the cricut but for some reason my cricut froze up on me so I gave up for the night. I will post more as I get them done.

  7. I had never used Stickles until I started reading your blog. I swore I was not going to start using another new product until I had used some of the things I already had. I caved. I used it on the Christmas cards I made for a swap. Loved it.
