Has it been another week already? WOW! There is a lot happening here in my little sphere of the blog world. It's week 2 of the DOOZIE of a project. I hope you will like what I have created using the patterns from ScrappyDew! http://www.scrappydew.com/ Please go and take a look at all the wonderful patterns (you know there are only 156 days until Christmas, like you needed to be reminded)
For this week I have a project that will fit the bill for a couple of holidays. I am coming to realize that I am using up all my scraps exceedingly fast. I'll show you the project and then tell you all about it. Here is the link http://www.scrappydew.com/store/fall-palz/
I had to dig into my 12x12 Core'dinations Premium Cardstock Safari Pack to get the colors that I wanted. Started with cutting the trees with my Zenith Zing. The first layer was yellow. Do you think I could get a good cut? H E double toothpicks NO!!! So I start trying to nail down what it might be. I put in a new blade, nope. Still tearing. Check my settings and they are correct. Didn't have any other 12x12 yellow paper so I cleaned my matt really well and that helped but this darned paper is so fiberous it's just shredding.
So I remembered that others with a Zing had mentioned that when the weather is really humid they stick their paper in the microwave for 10 seconds to dry it out. Finally this worked. I had to do this with every sheet of Core'dinations sheet that I used. I don't know if the weather was just really humid, but I have ran into problems with this brand of paper before. If you would be soo kind as to leave a comment below with what 12x12 paper you use I would be really greatful. So here are the trees~~~
Thankfully I was able to cut the scarecrow with the corn and hay bales with my good Recollections paper. This cut like a dream (as I have expected it too). Had some left over leaves and stuck them on also. I think that it turned out soooo cute!
Whewwwww.....Week 2 of the DOOZIE project is complete. Now I do know what I am making for week three but i'm not telling. You will just have to come back next Saturday and find out. I love having you visit and please remember to tell me what type of paper you have the greatest sucess with. I don't want another yellow meltdown.
So for now, Bright Blessings for the coming week! Jana
