Top of the mornin' to ya! Jamie here for some eclips2 Inspiration. I have just loaded a new hand-drawn shape to the eShape Store. It's simply called Lucky. And since St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner, I thought I would share a few ways I have used this die cut file in my projects.
One way was to make a planter pick. For this decorator accent, I cut the word out using gold glitter paper.
My tip for cutting this: set the blade to 5, the material to 'chipboard', and then click the multi-cut option to 2. This should give a great cut. Then, hot glue the word to a skewer. Mine measured about 4 1/2-inches wide. Tuck it into your favorite shamrock, and call it lucky.
The next way I used this hand written word was in my planner. I cut the file to about 2 1/2-inches wide, but this time I used watercolor paper. (Use the same settings as for the glitter paper.)
Then I colored the word with a green hue of water color, and added it to a page in my planner. I love how it gives a bit of a theme to my calendar for the month.
For the last project I want to share with you today, I used the negative that was cut from the first project, the plant pick. This was layered over pattern paper and a card was created.
The eCal software includes some pre-designed images for your use. In the Spring category are a couple of clover leaves just begging to be cut out. I did just that and added them to my festive card. A card now ready to send to a loved friend who causes me to be so lucky to know her.
Just a couple of ways to use a single cut file and celebrate a fun and lucky St Pats day next week. Thank you so much for stopping by.
