I haven't entered a challenge in ages and decided to do just that today. I took the day off and did lots of crafting - some ATCs and some cards. My nephew is turning one soon (I can't believe it!) and I wanted to make him a card. Emma from My Creative Time also has a challenge out to use an older cartridge for a card (or layout). I was playing around in Design Studio, looking at various modes of transportation and as soon as I saw the train on New Arrival, I knew that was exactly what I wanted to use!
Yesterday, I learned of a great tip for making glitter paste from Linda at The Paper Boutique. You can watch her video tutorial here. In fact, she's got a number of great tutorials on her YouTube channel. I followed her directions for glitter paste and used it for the number one. I also added regular glitter glue to some other aspects of the train.
(By the way, if you have not yet participated in the Fantabulous Cricut Button Up for School Blog Crawl, there is still time! I'm giving away a Stampin' Up Stamp Set on my post, so be sure to enter if you haven't already. You have until Saturday night at midnight.)
