A couple of years ago I purchased one of these:
Yes, I am a late bloomer...but being as my husband was unemployed, and about to become a full time college student...it was a big deal to even have this!
But this week I found a used 12" Expression for sale...and purchased it. YIPPEE!!
This week was also my Birthday, so my dear family gave me a new cartridge. Ribbons & Rosettes.
I loved the idea of this cartridge! (& still do) -
However, is it just me? I have trouble with these little guys! I can't seem to make them nice looking. I feel like I am all thumbs. Please feel free to give me any tips you might have.
I Googled videos...and they make it seem so easy...or don't show the actual assembly.
I do love the many...many...borders I can create as well with this cartridge.
I did however play with other cartridges...for my Son's upcoming birthday.
And a banner
using Bags, Tags & Boxes (using a tag for the banner)
& George & Basic Shapes for the font:
And a little purse from Bags, Tags, & Boxes - with my sad attempt at a rosette - it doesn't look bad, but it also took me over an hour to make!
