Indie Art Book Update~

This is the link to the .cut file, and the 2 PDF versions of the book, 1 as the regular 1 pager per page book, and one that is 6 pages on one 8.5" x 11" page. http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=4f6878ef07276a0690a82c7bb0fad7ad75e0a27e5adc17e9c95965eaa7bc68bc
I used George for the rectangle and Celebrations for the holes for the dots. I cut my paper to 7.5 x 5 so that all I had to do was flip it over and reinsert it into the printer to get the back to line up, you might have to do something different with your own printer.
I used 6mm PVC plastic coil to bind this, which I purchased from http://www.bestbuybinding.com/41_spiral__coil_sample_pack.htm (that specific link sends you to the sample pack that the white was from) They have TONS of different options available for binding products.
I hope that you all enjoy this, and I HOPE to one day have some free time to start on some of the other solution's cartridges... but since I don't own them (Other than Stone Script) it is not a number 1 priority for me. But I know that some of you out there would really like them.
Take Care!


Rocky Horror Floorshow Corset

I needed somewhere to stick a few photos of corsets, so here they are.

The first one is exposed correctly, the second two show an estimate of sequin placement and variety of colors.


Diaper Cake!!!

So I made a diaper cake for a diaper party, 280 diapers, 5 packages of wipes (hidden inside), a bottle of baby powder (also hidden inside), 1 set of J&J First Touch, and a cute pink poodle toy. It took me about 6 hours, and it was a great show piece at the party. :)

I cut all the parts of the tag with my Cricut, the basecard from george, the skull from indie art, the bow from Hello Kitty greetings, and the name from Stone Script. The flower that you see is from Hello Kitty greetings that I welded an "I" into from George so that I had someting to tie the bow around.

I got the poodle at Wal-Mart, and printed the back of the tag on lazer vellum and put on it what was "in" the cake and who it was from (as 8 of us went in on the supples for it together).

All of the colors were chosen based on the rest of the colors for the Baby's room so that she could use the die cuts for scrapbooking or the ribbon for other crafts.

Dani with her real cake that "Mama Rita" made and it is zebra and says "Diapers for Isabella" since they wanted something a little wild.


Indie Art Book

So the Cricut solution's cartridges don't come with books, just this little insert where it is REALLY hard to see what the pictures are.... so I made my own book.
I laid everything out in Photoshop and then printed the odd pages and then the even so that I could manually duplex each page. I then figured out using design studio how to cut the page to the right size with the holes so that I could us PVC binding to bind it off. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, it's only taken me 2 months to find all of the time to lay it all out and and a few hours to print, cut and assemble.
