In The Spotlight Criss Cross Cards


Oh Beate, how she inspires me. There is an awesome tutorial on SCS by Beate this week on these fun criss cross cards designed by the oh so fab Michelle Wooderson. Thanks Beate, sweet friend, for the constant inspiration. I've always loved these cards but never tried one until now.

Okay... so did eveyone know that the 5-Petal Flower punch and the Snow Blossom punch fit the flowers in the In The Spotlight Hostess set? How cool is that? I think I fell off the face of the earth during summer! LOL.


These are so much fun to make and easy too! I stitched with my machine on the sides, but other than that, I followed the tutorial instructions to the letter.

Here is the Recipe:

Stamps: In The Spotlight, Hugs and Wishes, In My Thoughts (second card)
Ink: Purely Pomegranate, Certainly Celery, Basic Black
Paper: Certainly Celery, Shimmery White, Purely Pomegranate Textured card stock, Cutie Pie DS paper
Other: Large Eyelets, Crop-a-dile, Circle Scallop Punch, 3/4 inch Circle Punch, Snow Blossom Punch, 5-Petal Flower Punch, Round Tab Punch,Crafter's Tool Kit, Soft Subtles Brads, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Scor-Pal, Pomegranate Stitched Ribbon, Celery Grosgrain, Dimensionsals.

So, the kids are all back in school and I don't know where last week went. Averie LOVES Kindergarten, but she had a very traumatic first day on the bus. Not only did they have her on the wrong bus (despite three calls to the bus company prior to school), but they didn't know where she was at. She arrived at my house over an hour past the time they gave me. It was traumatic for all of us. I'm so proud of her for getting back on despite her fear. Jayce and Baylor got new glasses and started flag football. I'm hoping this week will be smoother now that we are back on a fall school schedule. Hope you all had a great week. Thanks for stopping by!!
