On The Road

The Journey can be fun and exciting even when it includes hardships and stress.  New beginnings are always a challenge and can bring new adventures, discoveries and treasures.  It is the man who digs in and fulfills his dream of starting over and doing it with gusto and perseverance that can look back and be proud of taking a risk and working hard to succeed.
Congratulations and Wishing you the very best........ on the road.  You can do it!

HERE WE GO......

I used the  Close To My Heart Cruzin  paper for the map background and the torn distressed paper is from the Super Hero paper pack.

I used the hexagon shapes to resemble street sign shapes to highlight the letters on the banner.  They were cut with the cricut machine using the Pixar World of Cars Disney Cartridge.  Bottle cap is from Close To My Heart it can be purchased separately Z1691 (8 different bottle caps in a  package). and it is included in the Cruzin Workshop on the Go Kit.

I used the Cricut Pixar World Of Cars Disney Cartridge to cut and paper piece the street signs...

Check out the tire tracks crossing the speed limit sign.  The tire track stamp is one included in the 
Cruzin Workshop on the Go.  The gas pump is another stamp in that set.  I just love those stamps 

The wind of change stamp is an older Close To My Heart Stamp Set.

 Just a little info to show how easy it is to use the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cartridge with one of the  chipboard banners that come with the cartridge.  It includes 3 sheets of 3 coordinating chipboard sets and stamp sets

The banner is on page 49

Open package...choose the chipboard banner and set cricut machine at the 2 or 3 inches according to the banner you choose.  I used the 2 inch

The banner is on page 49 of the Art Philosophy Cartridge and it shows exactly where it is located on the cricut pad.  Push and Cut.

Cut the paper at 2 inches and match up with the chipboard...glue ..DONE
