I have been invited to be a guest designer on the wonderful Blog TUESDAY TREATS. This month the talented group of ladies is working on the cartridge Forever Young. I had made a wonderful purse and bought lots of bling to apply to the purse and then Lady G decided that for the 2nd time this week she would misbehave. Only this time she was not to return to her wonderful self. Hoping PC can help fix her soon. Luckily though I am currently doing the demos for the new Cricut Cake and part of our demo package was a Gypsy (which we have to return) the only issue is it only has the pre-loaded Gypsy Wanderings and Gypsy Font and then the 4 Cake cartridges we loaded.
So my problem then became, cheat on the Gypsy design and make the Forever Young purse on DS or use my demo G and try to come up with some kind of purse. I went with using the demo G and trying to make something. Another bump to my road was that I have 3 year old grandson that can hear a Cricut start up a mile away so there is NO crafting without his involvement.
So without further ado, I give you our (yes you get two designers this week, myself and the wonderfully talented Trenton) purse using the Gypsy and the Holiday Cake Cartridge.
The first step of this design was to make two of the cars on blackout in our green cardstock. We made the car 8.20w x 7.88 h
We had made enough cuts for 4 keys (when all parts were glued with one regular and one flip cut) but a little guy wanted to play with some of the keys, so we ended up with only 2 keys for our key chain. Being this was for his mom and he "helped" make it he wanted a blue keychain, so we used a small piece of blue rope to make the key chain and used our white pen to write Mom's taxi on the front plate. By the time I was able to get this done with the help of a 3 year old, it was so late and eyes were drooping so I am sorry that I could not do a better final shot of the "purse"
I may speak with Pam and ask her if it would be ok to try to do my purse with DS and post an extra post later this weekend and you all can then convert that cut file to a gypsy file. I will be back in a bit with the cut file for this. I have to recharge the demo Gypsy to be able to transfer the file.
