The topic: So, I want to make something


With paper. I want to make something with paper. I want to make this.

I've pulled the paper, ordered some sequins from Amazon (actually, I ordered this bundle; there is over sixteen feet of each color, this should last for a while, I love having choices). I already had the supplies I need for the ladder. I got this file when it was free. I had every intention of making it, just never did.

So, you may know by now how I like to emboss when I make buildings. I like the siding or roof to look three dimentional. Today, I am going to see if I can use my Curio to emboss on a larger scale than my Big Shot works. With the Big Shot, I'm limited in the size by the embossing folder. (Since I got mine, they've put out a larger hand crank machine.) I'd gotten the larger base for the Curio and it should take care of most of the sizes I'd need.

I had to find some sort of stone wall image to try out. Wish me luck.

UPDATE: 12:00 noon

My honest opinion? Using textured cardstock is 141031004

The Big Shot does a much better job.
