Happy Thursday my friends, Becki here! I’m thrilled to be here for Latest & Greatest Cool Tools with We R Memory Keepers. It’s finally time to dive into some summer crafts. When the Happy Jig landed on my doorstep, I fell in love with the cactus pattern. (The pattern for this cactus is in the instruction booklet that comes with the tool.)
I thought this green wire cactus would be adorable on the front of a card with the Simple Stories Hello Summer collection. This collection is part of our Latest & Greatest Cardmaking workshop.
After I created the cactus, I used a strong liquid adhesive (Therm O Web mixed media adhesive works great) to adhere the wire cactus to a piece of patterned paper.
After waiting for the adhesive to dry completely, I fussy cut around the edges of the wire. The background of this card is simple patterned paper that I stitched together with my sewing machine. At the bottom of the cactus, I added the sentiment “hello summer” and some cute bright pink pom pom trim.
I created this layout after our team visited Arizona for the Creativation show. I used the same technique on the card and the layout. Yes, I do love that cute cactus pattern. You can find more details about this project HERE.
Thank you for stopping by the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo blog for Latest & Greatest Cool Tools with We R Memory Keepers. The Happy Jig will be featured at upcoming shows in Duluth, Santa Clara, Schaumburg, and Edison. We would love to see you at one of these shows! Have a great week! I’ll be back next Thursday with another edition of Inspiration Station.
