Getting Cricky Tuesday Tutorial and "Choose a Cartridge" Pre-hop Day 3

Good morning everyone and welcome to the Tuesday Tutorial at Getting Cricky.  Today I am combining the Tuesday Tutorial with the "Choose a Cartridge" pre-hop challenge that is going on.  I really hope you have been following the fun.  If not, you might be a bit confused.  Several Getting Cricky Design Team Members are challenging themselves to use one Cricut Cartridge all week.  The extra challenge is that we are using a cartridge that we haven't used in at least 3 months!  To add to the fun, we get to use any stamp from K. Andrew Designs that we wish.  It is challenging and a great way to think outside of the box.

The fun doesn't stop there.  Anyone can play along.  All you need to do is link a project using a cartridge that you haven't used in 3 or months.  You will also need to use stamps from K. Andrew Designs.  I hope you join in the fun.

Today, I am showing you a guest book that I altered.  No, I'm not getting married.  I have used this guest book for over 20 years in my home.  After moving many times and going through 2 kids, this book was literally falling apart.  I decided to alter it and make it beautiful again.  The best part was remembering some of the wonderful guests who have been in our home.  I know that there is at least one person who is in the book  is now with Jesus.  I also found some "signings" by one of my children as well as places my daughter (who is now nearly 17) signed when she was quite small.  Such precious memories needed to be preserved.

Please enjoy the video, but don't forget to check out the rest of the post as there is information on the stamp set I used as well as on my current giveaway.  Thanks so much for watching and have a great day!

Today, I used Pirate Tales and Fish Scales which is featured below.  You can just click on the picture to be taken immediately to the page.
