(This is my second post today! See my Growing In Unity Post here and if you're looking for my Gallery Idol post, it is here.)
Amber Ink is turning one today and celebrating by having a party train blog hop with TONS of fabulous "torchbearers" from the past year. If you're following along the hop, you should have just seen Lindsey's fabulous Bashful Blogging creation. If you're just joining us, make sure to visit the Amber Ink blog to start at the beginning, since there will a PRIZE drawn from the comments on each blog!
The entire time I was making this card I was giggling to myself. Can you guess why?
this clip? (It was either embed the whole eight minutes on here, or link to the six minute mark, so I went with the six minute mark link. But seriously, go watch the next ten seconds.)
YES! CHEAP SEATS!!!!!! Do not even get me started on DirecTv cutting out ESPN Classic. That was the only sports channel I watched! Can't I trade The Fishing Network out for some Randy and Jason? If you need to go watch all the spelling bee episodes right now, I completely understand.
But back to my card, I used Amber Ink's new "It's a Trainset" set. I imported the jpgs into the Silhouette software, then used the trace feature to make the separate parts to cut out, then of course good ol' Elmer's came to the rescue again. The presents were a Silhouette cut file, but I did make the train tracks all by myself! I had to break out the math and everything. Here's a close-up, don't you love how train-y that metallic paper looks?
And now it's on to the next stop on this party train: the wonderful Orange Torchbearer Cheryl Gorka at She Stamps. (Oh, but before you leave, don't forget to vote for the Paper Craft Gallery Idol here!)
