Tool Time

Good Morning Everyone!

Today my post comes to you as a Design Team member for Heart 2 Heart, a Close to My Heart Challenge Blog.  Our challenge this week is "Tool Time"!  Basically, you create your project using one of more of your favorite tools .... and, of course, use Close to My Heart products :)

Here is what I made - can you guess what tools I used???

Did you guess?  I used 2 of MY favorite tools:  my Cricut Expression AND sponge daubers!!  I love to edge or distress the sides of the papers I use in my projects to add a little extra dimension.

I have been working on a mini Summer album and these are the next 2 pages of my album.  If you would like to see the first two, please click here.  I used our Surf's Up Workshop on the Go Scrapbooking Kit because it has the paper, embellishments, stamp set, and instructions to guide you.  Now if you know me at all, you know that I can never just do exactly as told -- I ALWAYS change things around!

To make my "Sun" image where I placed the sentiment "Some Like It Hot" I used our Artiste cartridge. 

Artiste Cricut cartridge (Z1790)
Surf's Up Workshop on the Go Scrapbooking Kit (G1059)
Honey Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (Z2162)
Chocolate Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (Z2111)
Lagoon Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (Z2195)
Crystal Blue Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (Z2117)
Sponge Daubers  (Z726)

I hope you enjoyed my project today.  I will continue to work on this Summer mini album and share the layouts with you here.
