New Project (and I'm still alive!)

Posted by Micah at 9:45 PM
Well, I've been working on a few non-crafty projects and so have neglected to post here in sometime. Thank you for the kind emails and texts asking if I'm well... I am!








I have a new cricut! I got the Expression2 on a ridiculous sale at my favorite craft store and picked up the Oh Canada cartridge at the same time. HOLY CROW IT'S SO CUTE!! I'm a bit of a nut for all things Canadian and it has almost nothing to do with the fact that my second child was born 3 hours too late to be a Canada Day baby. Honest.



Anyway, Close to My Heart sells this really cute My Creations Memory Game box set and I thought it would be fun to make a Canadian game! There's 24 cards, 3x3 inches, in the box so I only needed to think up 12 pairs. I used the Typeset paper pack, a sanding block, glue and the cricut... no ink or stamps!



I managed to get 7 pairs done (one each of those pairs shown in the photos). Once I get the other 5 pairs done I'll layer on some clear coat to seal it all up and decorate the box. You can see some of my itty bitty mistakes (like having to write in the letters for the coins, man those letters were TEENY... or having to cut off the poor beaver's fingers since I misjudged her size) but for a kids toy I don't think anyone will mind.



Thanks for checking in! I'll try not to go so long without posting again!
