Accordion Fold Christmas Card

Someone from the Cricut Message Board posted a link to directions for doing an accordion type card. I loved the concept so decided to use my new Christmas Solutions cartridge and create the card. Here is a link for the directions.

Here are pictures of my card… It was really fun to do. Love this new cartridge.

Here is an side view of the card. The card is 5 inches wide; therefore, the cuts are small. This one fits in an envelope that I had on hand that is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks for looking.

I have had a couple of emails regarding the folding and size of the Accordion folded card posted at the following link. http://www.brensdesigns.com/2008/10/another-christmas-card.html

I have created a CUT file template in both Plantin Schoolbook and George that may help.

Here is the picture of the CUT file.

Here is the Cut file for the Accordion Card with both the George and the Plantin Schoolbook files.

Erica’s Graduation

I finally have gotten caught up to June with my layouts for 2010.  Where did the time go!?!  My granddaughter, Erica,  has grown up so quickly and I hate it.  Her brother, Jake, is doing the same thing.  She just turned 18 and has finished her first semester at Western Michigan University and Jake is 15 and is a freshman at Gull Lake High School.

Erica Graduated in June from Gull Lake High School and I began doing the layouts of her graduation this morning.  The large picture is actually one of her senior pics and was the invitation they sent out for her grad party.  The who, what, when and where was on the back of the picture.  I loved the picture and figured I use it as a lead in to her grad pages.  Here are the first two I finished today.

The little graduate girl was designed, cut and pieced by me with my Pazzles machine.  The Font used for the titles was Murray Hill Medium.  It was a lot of fun making drawing this little gal on my computer and then cutting and piecing her.  I think she is cute.

Here is page two of the 2 page layout.
