It's another Simply Sunday Challenge over at Getting Cricky with Kandrew and this week's theme is "Pack Your Bags". I wish I were packing my bags to go on a trip. LOL Seriously!!! Anywho so here I am again Guest Designing for her and loving every minute of it. You are all so sweet to leave such incouraging comments. So this week I actually made a card. I love making cards and this week I used my Design Studio and an actual cartridge. LOL I just love my SCAL but I am challenging myself to use some of my carts. I really forget how many nice images I do have in them. I do not own the Pack Your Bags cart, so I used Cricutsearch.com and typed in suitcase. It then gave me all the carts that have a suitcase. What I absolutely love about Cricut Search is that it shows you exactly where the image on the cart is and gives you the page number and all. So much easier than searching through all my books to find an image. The Stand and Salute cart came up and I own that one. Yeah, me!!! On page 47 is the suitcase and it also has a layer to go with it. I used my DS to weld two suitcases together making a 4.75 x 5 card. I also cut one layer using this cute paper that was in my stash (my personal challenge to use up my stash) called "On the Road Luggage Labels" and it's by K&Company. I then cut the layer and the handle from some brownish card stock that was in my scraps bin and inked around them in black. I then cut a strip of the same brownish paper and used my ribbon punch to punch a slit in that and backed it with black cardstock for a key hole.
I had some keys in my stash and found the ball and chain and attached it to the handle.
I added the brads to the layer in copper.
As always, have a great day and god bless.
