WOOO HOOO! My first DT assignment! I have very anxious to share the news with you all, but I had to patiently wait until today to share the news. I have landed my fist DT assignment and it's with Melin and the wonderful team over at Cooking With Cricut!!! (insert happy dance). I am totally looking forward to my term with CWC and have already (sorta ) planned almost half of my projects! (well in my head at least) I have so many ideas that I want to share and I can't wait to get started. So without further a do here is my introductory project for my DT:

This week Challenge is:

Seuss-Read Across America Challenge

for this challenge we had to create a project featuring our favorite Dr. Seuss book or a project that encourages reading. For this, I kinda did both. I had been to create (or re-create) a book mark card that I have seen on several blogs. Most of the instructions involve doing it by HAND... no way, that's why I have my cricky! So I went on to find the easiest way to re-create it using only one cartridge and this is what I came up:

This is a tri-fold card using the AWESOME Art Philosophy cart from CTMH. I absolutely LOVE this cartrige, is like a fancy version of George or Plantin and it has a whole set of cards!

I welded the rounded edge card with a cute looking tag and sized it to fit an A2 size card when folded. 

When you get this card you get 2 for 1: the card and a cute bookmark!

The digital stamps are from Paper Crafting World where Melin has tons of adorable digis and cuttables. 

If you want to make your own bookmark card H E R E you will need to open it in the 
Cricut Craft Room to use. Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon!
