Wishes & Magic & Beautiful

I Love this bow I got over at svgcuts.com!!
So, Simon Says Stamp says use a stamp you love but never use and I knew exactly which box to go in.
My Tim Holtz Box. I love his stamps and own a trillion, but I never use them.
So I blew off the dust and here is what we got!

I embossed the background with "Circles" by spellbinders.
Cut out my tag with spellbinders Ornate Artisian and stamped my Tim Holtz.
The heart is actually ink + pearlx, but it didn't photograph well.
Then I cut out my silhouette bow :)

Hope you Like

Simply Charming...

Another page for the wedding album. This one show cases the charm one of the bridesmaids put on Nicole's bouquet, so that her parents could walk her down the isle.

I used a sketch from this months Unity Challenge & a neat trick from Jennifer McQuire's video here.
I started with Kraft Cardstock in my Silhouette where I used sketch pens to get my journaling on there. Then I stamped a bunch of daisy flowers with soft sand, I should have used soft brown probably, because soft sand ended up the color of the Kraft after it dried, lesson learned. Then I started the ghosting technique by stamping a bunch on Unity "Flowers & Friends" in Versa Mark Cloud White & then in assorted PTI Dye Inks.

Hope you Like :)

Last Fling Before the Ring!!

So I am working on an album for my best friends first year anniversary with all the pics from the wedding and all that led up to is :) Including the Bachelorette Party. I had seen a magazine cover that was set up similar to this, and thought it would make a good page! The cardstock is all colorbok. I cut the title out using assorted fonts from the Cricut Catrtridge Storybook.  I topped it all off with a faux veil from tule, to mock the one we made her wear all night ( it lasted 5 minutes before she lost it ).

Happy Anniversary

Hello There -- Here I am with power finally :). We lost it around 10 last night ( while I was in the middle of some heat embossing ). I finished said project today. An anniversary card for my best friend and her husband who will be celebrating their first year in April. I also did their Bridal Shower Invitation's and have been scrapbooking their wedding photos for their anniversary gift.


The cardstock was mostly scraps I had lying around, but the puple flowers were made from this interesting adhesive backed crinkly fabricy glitter paper from Jolee's Botique. I wasn't sure if it would make in through heat embossing, but it did. Sentiment was stamped on my favorite Labels 14 by Spellbinders, and the stamps were a mix from Hero Arts Friendship Messages & Everyday Sayings.

I got my sketch from Cardabilities
And was inspired by Muse Deanna's Paper Piece flowers
 @ Monday Muse


















Also super quick I wanted to share this new tool that I LOVE.
This is the Kelly Kraft Get it Straight Laser Square. My mom got it for me for Christmas because she said my projects were always crooked... Psshht. Well, They wont be anymore. I just love this thing!
Its a permanent fixture on my craft table now!

Hi!

I'm runnin' on fumes here, power is going in and out due to our fun ice/snow/mix storm in the mitten.
BLAH.
We'll I've gotten one project done while the lights are still on at least :)

This was a quick and simple card using a DCWV February Challenge Sketch. I used the beautiful Blossom Song stack with some washi tape. Stamped the sentiment with my favorite Lawn Fawn alpha stamps, and finished it with a little twine bow.

You Are My Sunshine!

I gave my Silhouette a real run for its money with this one!! All those little teeny tiny holes!

 I wanted a raised effect with the butterfly, so I chose to "window" them. I used the Butterfly Filigre file . After arranging it the way I wanted on a 5x7 rectangle,  I did a  .1 offset on each to make the window.

I stamped my sentiment, A combinnation of Hero Arts stamps, and affixed some cute polka dot buttons with twine.

I though the butterflies needed a  little bling, so they got bedazzled bodies, wish it showed up better in the picture. 




Cardstock:  Colorbok
Tools: Silhouette Cameo. Imaginesce Irock & Gems.
Stamps: Hero Arts Heydey Sentiments

The card size it 8.5x5.5 (half of a letter size piece of paper) I think I will eventually either make a box or book to put cards this size in.

Need more food cartridge though haha any suggestions?

A Little Love

Not sure if I really should've been in the craft room this weekend. Wisdom Tooth Extraction 101 was this Friday, and I am still a little wacky from the pain killers. When they say don't operate heavy machinery, do you think a sewing machine counts? Meh -- Whatev!

I wanted to get a quick and simple Valentine's done as I am way behind and haven't posted in a while. Already had the sewing machine out for a little scarf project -- So I though I would stitch together a quick love note.


I was searching the cricut craft room for the perfect heart for this ombre style card I had envisioned, and of all the hearts in my collection it turned out the perfect one was the plain ole cricut craft room basics. I really love the search function in craft room ( I only recently found it ).

Anyway, I digress...

So I choose 4 assorted pink colors from Coordinations cardstock and cut 4 1" hearts from each. After embossing a 5x5 square of background paper, I adhered then stitched on the hearts. The sentiment was a mix of Lawn Fawn (Quinn's ABCs) stamped in Black Memories Ink & the "you" off a thinking of you Hero Arts sentiment, which was stamped with Versa Mark then embossed with some Ranger Turquoise embossing powder.

There you have it! Hope you like.

I will be entering this card into the FCCB: Queen of Hearts challenge & Lawnscaping: Be My Valentine
