Crafting Sisters

My sister Barb had a hankering to create a card with a gramophone last night. To get to that point though she created her own wonderful .svg cut so that she could use it with her Silhouette Cameo.
I am the first to admit that my Cricut and Slice mostly sit unused, but I promised that Cricut would be dusted off to cut this element out so we could make a card together. It aways make me smile when I see how different our cards turn out when we tackle a challenge at the same time.
I could not resist using my Echo Park paper that already had vintage style items on it, including a gramophone (If you look close you can see it peeking out from behind the pane).
It took me forever to put all these pieces together, it did not matter how I placed them it seemed off. I finally added the twine and circle elements first then added the rest. You can find this fantastic Gramophone .svg file on Barb's blog  HERE.
Supplies: Natural Ivory and black cardstock, Designer Paper-Echo Park, The Stamps of Life-tinytitles2stamp, Barb Derksen - Gramophone .svg cut, twine, gems,  and misc punches.



  1. Hi Sis,

    Yes, we might be two apples off the same tree but we are definitely mutants of each other in our designing outlook. I always ♥ it when we take the same elements but cook them up different. Hmmm cook, perhaps we should have a sibling cookoff, you pick the ingredients!

    Your card is so nice, I always enjoy your layering, they look so rich. I think you rocked this one!

    Thanks so much for trying out my file, makes me smile.


  2. What a fun card!! I love the vintage look but modern sentiment!
    Do you use MTC or SCAL with your Cricut? I have MTC and most of my carts are gathering dust!

  3. Good morning Nina:)
    I LOVE your card!!LOVE the Vintage look!I too see a difference in you and your sister's styles. It always amazes me how you two can take the same item and see them differently.:)
    Thank you so much for stopping by again. LOVE your visits!!

    Hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend!!
