>In the wake of what happened to Blogger and my blogs this week, I decided to make a back-up blog for me to post on. I hope that this will never happen again, but I do not know technology. so with that being said the new address for the backup of this blog is https://mdncreates.wordpress.com/. Yes it is on WordPress, and no, I do not have any plans at the moment to move http://www.triciatreasure.blogspot.com/. At least in the immediate future. I want to make sure I can still blog, and I will actually copy posts from here onto that blog, and visa versa. I have done the same thing to my Tricia’s Baskets blog. so now I offically have 6 blogs to write on, plus some article writing sites: Hubpages, Helium, Associate Content. On top of posting on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and three Ning networks, it is a wonder if I ever get any work done around here.
Finally made something:
These cards (which is currently on my Etsy site) were made using both of my Cricut machines. I cut the card at 3″ using my E1 machine and the Pagoda cartridge, and I cut a square, using E2 and the Cricut Essentials Cartridge, pre-installed on the machine. The paper is from DCWV paper stack (mustard yellow and orange-red). The sentiment is stamped with the word friend, and that stamp is from Stampin!Up called You’re A Gem in Real Red ink. I did not do my normal distressing, because I wanted sort of a tone on tone look about it, and I did not have a color that closely matched the paper, but it naturally distress along the folding edge of some of the cards. I made envelopes for the the cards, cutting them at 31/4″ using E1 and the wild cards cartridge. As you see here I did a different shades of the colors Yellow and Orange. I intended to do it that way. The paper for the envelopes are from the same company.
I am having fun working two cricuts. Now if I can only get rid of the baby bug.
>A new look-
I am always looking for a way to decorate this blog. Well, Blogger has come through with this pink packground. I love it better than the old one. This is bright and cheery. Sure, I can always go on these sites to download a template for this blog and my other, but whose to say with bloger will do with it. They do have the right to reject it. I am not taking that chance. Well that is it for now.
