365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#135 Eeek! Black Widow Card

Yesterday morning I went to the Dollar Tree and got a package of already cut foil to try embossing in my Cuttlebug. I originally thought of this from shopping on Oh My Crafts, they sell metal for embossing and I was thinking hey, foil could work and it did! I embossed the entire silver background (the Foil) with a skull scroll embossing folder that I got on clearance at Oh My Crafts, the scary black widow is from the October 31st cart I added 4 pieces of red bling on it to look like a real black widow. Unfortunately I know exactly what they look like because I get them scary suckers in my back yard and my front yard since I live in the dry/hot part of So. California =( I'd rather buy Cricut Cartridges then pay for an exterminator.....that is sad I am risking my life for Cricut Carts!LOL, Luckily there's Raid and thats cheap!! Oh and another tip, I tried cutting the foil with my paper trimmer and it ripped! So make sure to trim with your scissors!!

Very cool! I really like the way this looks! I always keep a stocked supply of those foil sheets, I love to line my baking pans with them, but I never thought to emboss them! I will definitely have to try this! It's great for Halloween! It's funny what we skimp on, so we can spend more on our carts! hehehe.
