This is my very first post on my very first blog and I would like to welcome all visitors to Anniebee's Craft Room. As I am brand new to the world of blogging, I am going to start out simple and hope that my entry looks the way I intend it to look. Soooo... here goes!
Because I have been spending every spare minute cleaning and organizing my garage, I haven't really had much crafting time lately so I'm starting with a project that I created a while back. It's a word book I made for my niece for her high school graduation last year. I'm sure most of you have seen albums like this before but just in case, each page is a letter in the name of the recipient. In this case, the name is "Kirsten", whose nickname is K.C.
. I started with a baby picture and progressed through her childhood and into her school years and ended with graduation. The base pages are fairly thick chipboard and covered with patterned scrapbook paper and cardstock and then embellished with die cut designs, frames and embellishments that coordinate with the themes of the pages. I used Cricut Design Studio to design the shape of the pages; the rectangle part from George and Basic Shapes and the letters from Storybook. I had to multi-cut several times, even with the deep cut blade and housing, and then finish cutting with a very sharp craft knife. I used very fine grit sand paper to finish the edges.
