My First Designer Post

<-----LOOK :)
WOOT!!!! I am so excited to announce that I am part of the Cooking with Cricut design team. I will be participating in at least two design team posts a month along with 17 other talented DT members. The design team will use digi-stamps or cutting files created by Melin that go along with the weekly challenge. This is my first design team experience and I'm very proud to have been selected.

This weeks challenge is Love-Sweetest Day. I am using the cut file titled "Elephant Love".

The first step in creating this card was cutting out the parts for the cute little elephants. To do this I divided up the different pieces based on the colored paper I'm cutting it. With SCAL 2 I can easily use it the next time.

After cutting the pieces I did a little edging with stamping ink, I think I might be addicted to that technique!

I then put them through my Xyron, which made it easy to put together the elephants. The bow tie and headband are flocked and to add a little more character to the ladie elephant I inked on a little lipstick and then used my white pen for a pearl necklace and bracelet. You'll notice that I didn't use all of the hearts from this image on the front of the card. It was a little too much for my taste so I put them on the inside!

Supplies Used:

  • Plain Paper - scraps
  • Patterned Paper - PaperTreyInk, Friends 'Til The End Collection
  • Photo Corners - ATD, Story of Us Sticker Pad
  • Decorative Tape - Martha Stewart, Candy Stripes

Thanks for checking out my project. Be sure to head over to Cooking with Cricut to see what the other design team members created and participate in the challenge!

Too much pressure or too little force should be very uncomfortable during a therapeutic gay sizegenetics which may lead to more damage than good. Also when making a booking for erotic male sizegenetics make sure to will not book a masseur who is very heavy handed. Someone who is heavy handed may totally ruin the sizegenetics experience. A therapeutic gay sizegenetics, if not done properly, can also affect and cause injury. Also an area that is possibly sore will become inflamed a result of the repeated rubbing and stroking. Take your time when researching about the different different therapeutic gay sizegenetics methods and techniques.
