AECP Level 1 final project
Hello and thank you for joining me on today's post. I have been working through the Altenew Educator Certification Program and have completed 10 lessons within the program and submitted a total of 10 posts with 19 card designs. I have been very inspired by the classes I have been taking on Altenewacademy.com. For today's card, I was issued a challenge to make a card that could be suitable for a masculine card or for a teenager and have the theme of either birthday or encouragement or congratulations. In building this card, I used techniques and inspiration from four different classes at Altenew Academy: For the guys, Easy Die Cutting, Let it shine and Easy Ink Blending. Please read along for how I put together this card.
I like to make cards. Masculine cards are typically defined by being more geometric, patterned and less flowery. In the Altenew class, For The Boys, the instructor gave a lot of different ways to interpret masculine cards. Most of my stamps from Altenew are floral so this course made me move out of my comfort zone and made me think outside the box. I recently purchased the Warp Speed stencil from Altenew and figured this would a good time to use it. Read on for two cards I made using this stencil.
Personalized Birthday Gifts
I love birthdays ... from cake to presents to celebrating with friends and family; birthdays are just a lot of fun. Having two kids means lots of birthday parties which means lots of buying birthday gifts. For birthday gifts, I prefer to give something that is personal and can be used over and over. This cycle of birthdays, I’m making personalized tote bags. I already posted on this, here but I have another example including what I put into the whole gift. For this project, I used my Cricut Explore Air, Cricut Iron On Lite, Cricut Vinyl to make: a personalized tote bag, pencil box and bookmark. I also made two birthday cards to go with these presents. Lots of ideas here so I will break them down as I hope this post will leave you inspired to make some birthday gifts.
