May 14 Cars Binder Project

WOW what a pain in the rear this binder project was - but it did turn out super cute if I do say so myself.  First off, I am SO tired of the Cricut Binder Projects involving frames!  I'm only up to "C" and I've had to do so many frames!.  This called for an 11x17 frame which I was not going to purchase - so I did the next best thing. I took my College Degree out of the frame and used that.  Just kiddin HA!  I cut a frame from foam board and then followed all of the instructions in the binder.
First I thought I'd use markers instead of paint. Yeah... dumb idea.  Live and learn.  Second I started painting (yes, as a matter of fact I was covered in it)  I painted the 'sky', then the 'road'  Yes I'm crooked on the grass part...... I'm crooked in the head too.   I then used a white gel pen to make the highway markings. That process took 2 days (the paint, not the gel pen)
First photo is all the gamillion cuts I had to make.  WOW.  That was a fun little treat, me with glue everywhere and 10000000 tiny pieces.  I had to keep referring to the binder photo to try and figure out where all the little pieces were to be glued.  Finally I just figured it out by looking at the front of the binder at the bigger photo.  My eyes are much too old to be looking at that tiny print!

Hugs and Chirps!

  3. I did this car as one of my first crickut projects ever. I was broke in good. Took me hours and in the end it was laminated and turned into a place mat for my youngest who will never appreciate the time and effort that went into making it. Luckily mine turned out cute too, or I may have chucked the entire machine. Lol. After a few beginner projects I then grew to love my machine and now could not live without it. Your project turned out great. I hope you can put it somewhere great to admire it for years to come.

  8. Great job Tangy, that cartridge sure is a handful!!! But the cuts are so cute. A lot of the guys in my life are racing nuts, so these cuts sure have come in handy.I've found that if you leave the cuts on the mat, they are easier to piece together. Love this one. TFS Hugs, Jess

  10. Oh, Tangee, this is very cute - labor intensive but very cute. I agree, those pictures are way too small! i find coloring is better for me than all those little bits.
    thanks for your blow-by-blow pics!
