December SAC

As some of you may know, every month I participate in the swap a crop (SAC) on the Cricut MB. Here is my creation for my partner this month.

I haven't received mine yet (oh, the excitement) but as soon as I do, I'll post it here!

Thanks for visiting and Happy New Year everyone! Have a blessed start to 2009!

Welcome to my blog! I'm new to blogspot so bare with me as I learn. I've set this up mainly so the people on the Cricut MB who are in my Pick your theme swaps can see pictures of what to expect within each level: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Please bare in mind that none of these layouts are my work but work of the dear members in the swaps. Below is a brief description of each level with pictures to follow.

Beginner: single sheet background, 3 or less embellishments, usually single matted

Embellishments include: buttons, brads, ribbon, cricut cuts (title does not count), eyelets, gems, flowers, etc. Each item counts as 1 (4 buttons and 2 brads count as 2 embellishments).

Techniques: distressed, embossed, tearing, paper piercing, stickles, etc.

Last but not least: Please understand that the descriptions and pictures are just examples. It's not always going to match perfectly and I don't want it to. Use your creativity and express yourself, you're the only one that can bring that to this swap. The descriptions and pictures are just to ensure that your level of work is equal to those in your group. Thanks so much for signing up and enjoy!
