Now that you have enrolled in no less than 3 free classes, take a look at this one by Heidi Swap called Tips and Tricks. I picked up a few items on her list, but not everything because I wanted to use my imagination and see what I could use from around me.
One item I did invest in Gold Modeling Paste. Cutting flowers from the Flower Market Cartridge, I placed them on top of an old Hip Pics album (discontinued, but you can use the My Creations Kraft Mini Book) and scooped up some Gold Modeling Paste to make 3-d flowers. (This is where the Heidi Swapp class comes in handy)Lagoon re-inker along with Sweet Leaf re-inker and added them to a bit of white acrylic paint. Using a sponge brush, I mixed the colors with the paint and added color to the cover.
Once I had the colors I liked, I added some stamping with Black Archival Ink using the stamp set Beautiful Moments (A1200).
Just so you know, Close to My Heart Glitter paper is amazing for cutting with a Cricut. Never had any issues and looks amazing!
Rustic Home Ribbon, one of my favorite ribbon packs!
And Baby Girl Complements, which has tons of cute gold embellishments.
Stay tuned for more on this album and keep your paper flowers used with the modeling paste, you will need them!
