I got to play with some toys!

I made this set of Christmas cards for my sister. She needed a few door prizes for a conference she is attending tomorrow so she asked me to make her a few things. For some reason when I uploaded the pictures some of them uploaded turned the wrong way. I used one of my cuttlebug embossing folders and some glitter glue on the card fronts. I got the idea from Billie on some of the yahoo groups I belong to. (Thanks for giving me something to scraplift Billie!)

I also made her these two friend word books. I finally took my bind it all out of the package and used it. I love it. Now I must make more things to bind.

I have seen several different projects lately using the glass block and vinyl. I tried vinyl months ago but couldn't figure out the settings for the "kiss" to leave the backing while cutting the vinyl. I am happy to say I finally figured it out. I used the Storybook cartridge to make the cutouts for the blocks.
I am very happy that I finally got to use some of the materials and tools I have purchased. I feel so much better when I use things instead of letting them just sit.
