I'm back!!!

Hello, friends!

I am back from my sort hiatus! I needed to study for finals AND I got the new cartridge for Hello Thursday, so I have been so busy. I have a lot of great stuff coming this week though, so stay tuned!

Today's card is made using the Mini Monograms cartridge. I cut the scalloped squares and the thank you using this must have cartridge. It is really one of my go to cartridges!



I used little rhinestones on the 'thank you' cut to add a little bit extra.



Papertrey Ink patterned paper, buttons, and ribbon, were used.







Have a great Monday!!

Thanks for going back and showing us designs with older cartridges. We sometimes forget what wonderful designs they have. By the way, ever thought about using "Graphically Speaking" for a card or layout? I would love to see what you come up with - tfs

Missed you Melanie. Great card. TFS

Chris said...

Very cute card. I think I will try this but use different pattern paper to make it look like a quilt. Maybe even emboss them with my cuttlebug.

Grammy GG said...

Oh, Melanie, just came from Everyday Cricut but didn't post there because I have both of those carts and I didn't want to spoil someone else's chances. LOL :)I don't need the prizes to enjoy what you do. It was so good to hear your voice on the video--WELCOME BACK, "YOU" were missed! As always loved your cards--just wanted you to know how much I appreciate all you do for us.Hope those finals went well --now get some rest!! :)

Grandma Nancy said...

Yikes! I just got off Everyday Cricut and was thrilled that I have that cartridge and needed a thank you card today and now I'm here and I also have this cartridge!! Decisions...decisions!!

Hi Melanie,

Hope your finals went well! :) You must be so happy to be done!

How clever!!! I've seen similar cards with squares, but for some reason, I never thought to do it with scalloped squares.

Enjoy your time off (from school-I'm sure you'll be as busy as ever),

Jennifer
