Howdy! I love this time of year, the warm days, crisp nights and then weekend full of fun at the local county fairs, late summer at it’s best! I didn’t bring my camera to the fair this year because I took over a hundred photos last year and decided it was high time I scrapbooked them:
I used my new Fun Fair SVG set to cut the tickets (both single and the border strip) with my Cricut and SCAL software (SCAL on sale for $59.95 for a short time!)and my On the Line digital stamps to make the banner.
Here is a tip: I used digital paper and printed the paper on the inside triangle of the banner only. I layered my stamp over digital pattern paper from Lettering Delights (all their pattern paper packs are on sale for $1 so stock up now!) then used the “magic wand” tool to remove the inside of the banner so I could see the paper, then I clicked around the banner, an inverted my selection, flattened the layers and hit ctrl+x to cut the paper pieced banner and pasted it as many times as I wanted in a new document. I only printed the paper I needed, no wasted ink or paper and it is easier than trying to print on pattern paper scraps AND I can make it match my layout!
This page qualifies for the following challenges: By the Cute and Girly (indian summer), The Craft Garden (Bunting/Banner), Daisy Doodles , ginger Loft (anything goes), Flourishes (tickets), Lexis Challenge (flower Power), Really Reasonable Ribbon (flowers) and Tuesday Throwdown (celebrate fall).
Here is a peek at the sets I used:
Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
