YES! You are the right page! I just have a new name! :) After realizing that I do more than just scrapbooking, I've decided to change the name and will be changing the look.. I'd do a whole new blog but I'd hate to have to start all over.
Here you will find scrapbooking ideas. There's a ton of older posts that used the Cricut, but lately I haven't been using it much and well, my sewing machine is gaining more miles by the day.

78th Birthday Car with Model T

My Grandfather is going to be 78 on the 15th. Here is the card that I made for him!
Card Base - Cut with SCAL - if you look closely, you can see that it was cut as a postage stamp. (He collects stamps, so that's where I started!)
I did it in white for a stronger base, and then I did the top layer as a separate piece. I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Antique Linen - to create the "old" look. I applied the distress ink to blank white paper, then crinkled it many times, and then added more to get the ink right on the creases. Then, I cut out the postage stamp image on my cricut. (note - Next time I do this, I'm going to cut the image first, then ink and crinkle. The blade kinda cut it, but being bubbly and uneven it did not cut all the way through.)

The Car is an 1915 Model T - SVG that I made last night, and then I cut a "78" for the upper corner.

My brothers first car was a Model T back in the 50's. I think he paid $100 for it. LOL
