Nautical Captain's Helm Wheel Card

Created this card with a Nautical theme. I know a couple of friends that have boats that this card would be perfect for.

Stamped Captain's Helm Wheel on Kraft cardstock new Tim Holtz stamp I bought from Stamp Asylum store. Used TH paper distresser. Added ribbon. Added a wobble to back of the stamped Wheel on Kraft cardstock. 

Embossed Darice Dark Blue Stripe core'dinations cardstock using the Paper Studio Anchors embossing folder. Used TH sander on the embossing. The cardstock has a white core which is wonderful looking after sanding. 

Used Cricut cartridge George and Basic Shapes to cut the circle sentiment tag. Stamped K Andrew Designs rope. MISTI tool was handy for stamping in a curved style the sentiment 'Ahoy!'  Used Cricut cartridge Life Is A Beach to make the Anchor that I attached to the sentiment circle tag. Attached the Anchor with a red star brad. Inked the edges of the sentiment tag.

Daisy Pet Training Scrapbook Layout

Created this 12" x 12" scrapbook layout using 4" x 6" photo of my dog, Daisy, when she completed dog training at Petco 2/25/15. Daisy entered adult level 1, completing level 1 in 2 wks and she was promoted to level 2 which she completed in the remaining 4 wks of the 6 wk training classes at Petco.

Chose the yellow flower background cardstock to complement her name, Daisy. Used Cricut Explore Air Cricut cartridge When I Was A Kid for the words 'My Pet' and the Dog Paw Print. I subscribed to yr of Cricut Design Space images yesterday 5/1/15 and this was the first cut of images from a cartridge that I do not own but able to use thru subscription digitally. I played around with different colors of cardstock for the words & paw print before I settled on the ones here. I even had to look at Daisy's paw to see what colors to use.
