Good morning.  I finished my cameo pages this morning.  Tomorrow I will mail them.

I used my Pazzle's to cut the cameo and to write the quote.

Here are the pictures:

I saw this cameo in the Paazle's CraftRoom and fell in love with it.

I used both the negative and positive not because I thought:  "Hmm maybe I could use the positive and negative"  but because I ruined one of the cameos I cut.  So instead of cutting again I just used the one.

I cut the vinyl with my blade length at 1.5 and the pressure is where I had trouble.  The best pressure I found was 7.  I still need to work on that part.  I bought my vinyl from:Expression's Vinyl.

The paper is from K and Company Scarp Pad to Go.

To cut the tags I used the Spellbinders Creative Page Tabs.  I cut them using my Spellbinders Grand Calibur.

The "pearls"  are Perfect Pearls.  They almost didn't survive.  Once the cat jumped on one of the papers before it was dry and the second one I placed some paper on top of it not thinking!  I did a little touch up on them.

The "bling" was from my stash.  I think I bought these rolls of "bling" from Michaels. I never thought I would use these when I bought them.  They are little rolls of bling with adhesive already on them.  You just cut how much you need, peel them off the backing, and then apply them where you want.  I really enjoy using them.  In fact next time I go to a Michaels I am going to look for some more.  I bought these about a year ago and have just about used the entire rolls.

The ribbon was from Hobby Lobby.

The "gems" on the tab are from a kit of bling that I bought from HSN years ago! 

And honestly I don't remember where I bought the flowers.

The quote is from Spencer Kimball from a 1979 talk.

On a side note here I don't pay full price for my crafting supplies.  I use coupons, "deals of the day", and offers that are too good to resist!

A great place to find "deals of the day" is from StampingScrapping.  I always check her deals and I check her past deals also.  I used the 40% off coupons from Micheals and Hobby Lobby.  I also belong to a couple of email lists and I find a lot of useful information and deals on those lists.

Thank you for taking time to stop by and take a look.  I really appreciate you doing so.

Have a great Monday!
