My favorite new technique..

I just had to share my favorite new technique with you all! I got my SU square punches probably 3 or 4 months ago now and have barley used them. I decided to take them out and play with them. I had all these scraps of paper that I love but they were to small to do anything with, or so I thought. I decided to just punch lots of squares out of them and then it hit me to combine them all on to one card! So I cut a 4x4 piece of cardstock and it was perfect to fit 9 of these squares on. My other new favorite thing is 5x5 cards and since I have a Gypsy I can easily change the envelope patterns on it to make them big enough to fit a 5x5 card.

This tree is from Cindy Lou cartridge. Love this tree!! I think I'm going to make lots more cards with this tree and this style of card.



Thanks for looking and be sure to check back tomorrow for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge!
