Welcome to my Blog!

So many of my friends have said to me, "Betty, you should have a Blog, it's so easy to do".

Here's my attempt at Blogging. My name is Betty (aka Scottie), I'm from North Carolina. I've been involved in a variety crafts over the years, computer crafts, machine embroidery. I enjoy making cards, boxes, bags and items for the home. Here you will find some of my projects (past and present).

I had the chance to do some more experimenting today. Of course it was cut on the Cricut. The card below is the result. You can download the file here I got the idea for this file from Amazing Paper Grace Becca is an amazing artist.

Do you want to know a secret? This file is two separate pieces.
The Butterfly cuts completely out, then just the very center of the Butterfly is glued back in the cut out area. Then when dried you lift up the wings and add a pearl.
