On Your Marker, Get Set, Scrap!

Hello everyone! It's my turn to be the guest designer at The Bugbytes. For this layout you need a gypsy, an E2, brown cricut marker, Cindy Loo cartridge and Stretch Your Imagination cartridge.

On layer one arrange the caption using the Cindy Loo font feature at 1.06". The 4.35" frame is made with the frame feature with the bird house layer placed on top of it.

The scallop is on layer 2 with the inner square hidden with the hide contour feature.

Insert the marker (with the pressure set at 1) and "cut" layer 1, then after it is finished hit "return to design", go to layer 2 and "cut" again. Then unload the paper.

Fill in the scallops and birdhouse doors by hand. Add dots to the inner frame and wash with a small amount of water and a brush to spread color. Draw flowers around the outside. Cut the birdhouse on the inside of the frame with a craft knife so a photograph can be slid under it.


Actually tidier than it looks because behind the cd rack, there is a large clear space lol. Those are most of my Papertrey Ink stamps in a great thrift store find, three cd racks for $2!  The cone to the right is a prototype for a birthday hat from the Cricut Elmo's Party. And lots and lots of painter's tape to hold things down as needed.

I really need to re-label the pink bin, it has fine line markers and gel pens in it, not cd cleaning supplies lol. I'm so late to the fair today, it's been a longgggggg day lol.

If you are wondering what's all this WOYWW, head over to the Stamping Ground and have a gander! Better yet, join in :D.
