Interactive Card Hop
I hope you are enjoying today's blog hop! I know I will be learning alot as I browse through everyone's talented cards! For those of you that haven't visited my page before, welcome!
I have a secret to share.... I'm not a card maker. I CAN make cards... and do on occasion, but my main passion is scrapbooking. That being said I love a good challenge and when I learned about today's hop, I wanted in. Pop Up Twirl card? What is that? A sliding ladder? Interesting! Count me in I said. Not knowing what any were I bravely asked to be assigned to a card and then looked up some tutorial and watched some viseos on how to make them. I watched and said - HA! Easy-Peasy! I can do that!
Er. That is, I THOUGHT I could do it. My project turned out to be what my 13 year old would call an "Epic Fail". There are paper scraps everywhere... splinter shards, glue in my hair, and about four different cricut cartridges laying on my floor. Yeah, I'm a messy scrapper and it usually works for me. Tonight, however, no go. So sorry to dissapoint, but I cannot discrace this hop with the tangled mess of paper and twine that sits upon my desk.
If you would like to learn about how to make a Pop Up Twirl Card, there is a very easy to follow tutorial by Split Coast Stampers which can be found here. I hope that I haven't offended and that you choose to check out some of my other projects so that you see that I'm not a total dud : )
Next on the hop is Angie at http://atuttletime.blogspot.com/ Enjoy!
