Summer is upon us and that means one of two things.
Either you are super busy with travel, swim lessons, backyard parties, and countless trips to the library...or you don't have kids. Just kidding! I have found that summer can be a hard time of year, you're either over run with activities or a total lack of energy to do anything. And that my friends is where the wonderful world of tools come in! Anything to make life easier, right?
My Mama (grandmother) told me once, and I'm sure we've all heard it at one time or another, "Oh you make the cutest things! I could never do that!" I told her anyone can do anything if they have the right tools.
And so for this week's challenge, we want you to share something you've created using your very favorite tool...or three if the case may be.
With Father's Day just around the corner, I made a little something for my Dad using my favorite tool, the Cricut!
Stamps: Perfect Fit-Dad
Inks: Barn Red, Outdoor Denim, Desert Sand, New England Ivy, Indian Corn Blue, Chocolate
Papers: Colonial White, Kraft, Outdoor Denim cardstock
Accessories: Brown and Tan Sparkles
Tools: Artiste Cricut cartridge, tweezers, micro-tip scissors
The ties are found on page 75 of the Artiste handbook. I cut them out at 3". The circle is 2" and just the right size for the "award".
There were six of us growing up, hence the six ties for my dad. Now all I have to do is be sure and get it in the mail!
So time to get creating! Be sure and follow the guidelines...CTMH items, link to your blog post, etc. You know the drill. Have fun and be sure to stop by the other DT members' blogs and check out their favorite tools, too!
