Games To Play

Games to Play

More on this fun Travel Album!  This is the Travel Album workshop I will host.  I got the workshop and directions from Ginni Candeleria.   What a trip down memory lane for me as we played some of the games I did as a kid.  Do you remember the license plate game?!  Such fun to pass the time.  The map of the USA, is cut from the “You are Here” Cartridge.  Many of the images are cut from this cartridge. The nice thing about the album was the multiple games in the book, allowing you to move back and forth between games and not lose track of where you were at or scores!

Do you remember this game?  Slug Bug?  Now, I’m informed that it’s called “Punch Buggy”.  This could be a East Coast vs West Coast terminology.   With four spots to keep track of the score, it was a great deal of fun.  We did add in PT Cruisers and Mini Coopers to the count for more variety.  Who can turn down a game of Hangman?  The “Go” piece is in a 2″x 2″ flip flap.  You write your word under the flap. This ensure good “gamemanship” (if that’s a word).

Last one I’ll share with you is the “fill-in-the-blank” games.  Definitely worth a few laughs and then some!   SG would ask us for the words and then read us the stories.  They were so silly and fun.

If you want to make the album as shown, you’ll need to pick up the Adventure Fundamental Pack of Paper (low quantity left) and matching Compliments.  Both are retiring on August 31 so time is short.  Modifications will need to be made for the Picture My Life Cards as well as a few other things.  I’d highly recommend the Adventure Cardstock Pack as well so you have matching cardstock to help with modifications.

Amazing August Things To Remember!

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet and letting me take a little .  I hope you got to smile as you read about these games and had a trip down memory lane.  Computers, sumpters – games are still more fun in person!

Travel Activity Book

Travel Activity Book

I found this wonderful Travel Activity Book from my friend Ginni Candelera.  I got the workshop directions and when I realized I was running out of time to cut and make it before we departed from Maryland, I reached back out and was so blessed she had one kit left.  When SG went off on her first backpacking trip, I worked hard to get it done!   Here are a few of the pages to show you how cool it is.

The workshop uses the Adventure Fundamental Paper Pack which is scheduled to retire here in a few weeks.   The Cricut Cuts are from the You Are Here Cricut Cartridge (over 700 images on this).  We are driving all around Oregon over the next several days and this book has provided a great deal of entertainment for us.  The album is a “Everyday Life” album.

 

Here’s a quick YouTube I made showing some more of the pages.  Ginni has created a very fun book that is invaluable to anyone taking road trips with older kids (and even adults) to help pass the time:

 

More pages to come in later blog posts!

Amazing August Things To Remember!

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  Stay tuned for the rest of the Travel Activity Book as we move around Oregon!  =)

You Are Here

You Are Here

Here’s a card using the Fresh Air paper and some of the new stamps available in the SE2.  The set I used works with the “You Are Here” Cricut Cartridge.  The Design Space file is included in the post.  The US is cut from the You Are Here Cricut Cartridge.  The stamping done in Espresso along with the distressing around the edges of the map.

The sentiment above is in the You Are Here cartridge.  Below is using the font on the cartridge.  I cut it out three times, gluing the different layers.  The bottom layer is cut from the Espresso cardstock and offset to look like a shadow.  The technique is great, looks fantastic, but I don’t recommend it for mass production!  It might be drive you a little insane.

This is the stamp set, D1778 US Vacation used:

Sunshine Thank You

Sunshine Thank You

Wow, what a crazy flash sale and I’m so glad to see so many take advantage of a great sale.  Creating this Sunshine Thank You was so much fun and easy too.  Using Design Space and an overlay from ArtBooking and the February SOM Sunshine Thoughts, you are ready to go.

The overlay actually has a sun on it.  Do have the stamp pop out, it’s covered up.  Using Black on this layout, the bright Tangerine and Lemon cardstock really stands out.

Use 3D Foam tap to give dimension to the card and have the sentiment pop up.

Use a variety of sequins to add a little bling to the card.  They are CTMH’s Gold Sequins and Queen and Comp’s yellow sequins from her topper collections.  The February SOM S1802 Sunny Thoughts has great sentiments for both scrapbooking and cardmaking:

 

Purchase the February SOM for $5.00 (with a $50.00 order) and get this free Card Kit, cut and ready to stamp!
