Anyways, I made two pretty awesome pages using the pens. They run about $10 for a set of 8 regular colors. The metallics and glitters are the same price for 4 pens (I think - don't quote me on that)!
Back to the weekend, I was having a serious conundrum about what to do for a pirate page. I had no cute pirate paper and I am not so talented as to cutely burning paper. But I downloaded an image of a treasure map and had it printed on a piece of paper for my background. I filled in some of empty space with chalks and I used Stickles to trace over the "x" for the magic spot! The letters are a font I already had on my computer. What do you think?
The other page I did was for a few random dates in July... of 1993. I didn't have enough to make any full pages, but I made a calendar for the whole month and added in these few events and key family dates. I really think that this was a great way to incorporate several family events in a less "random" way. I did hand-write the dates and events. I am sure the Cameo could do it, but at 3 in the morning, I was not up for that adventure.
I thought they both turned out fabulously and cannot wait to do more experimenting with it!
PS - Dear Alison,
If you move closer, you can come over and play with the Cameo anytime! K?
