This Monday the challenge at Fantabulous Cricut is to use clouds and the color blue.
The other day while I was feeling the joy of folding laundry (insert sarcasm) I was watching the Gypsy A to Z video that I won months ago. I don't get too much tv time but since my baby was sleeping and my hubby was watching the NBA I decided that it was time to watch it. It is an awesome video!! It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or a pro, it is so helpful!! Two things I loved specifically was the tutorials on doing borders and lace... Oh the lace... is too amazing, I'll share later. You'll see why I talk about Gypsy A to Z soon.
I did a layout of my daughter when she wakes up.
I never wake her up unless is getting late because she wakes up so moody. I always wait until I hear her talking because that means that she is no longer moody.
The butterflies are stamps from Close To My Heart
and I connected them with doodles.
Here is what I learn in the video. How to do borders and how to make them look good and not just do a line with things.
I used my Gypsy to do the cloud border
with Simply Charmed. The sun is also from this cart
and I used just one layer and I stamped the face with my Peachy Keen Stamps the Wide Eyed Kids Assortment.
For the Title I used Cherry Limeade and for
the "&" I used Rock Princess.
This little bird is also from Cherry Limeade
and the grass border also with the Gypsy technique using Paper Dolls Everyday.
I hope you liked my layout as much as
I love the Gypsy A to Z!!
