We Stick Together

This card just made me smile so much.  I hope that everyone who celebrates Easter had a wonderful one.  My card borders and on cute, but the occasion called for it.  I hope that you have a chance to play along with the challenge for the next two weeks using the sketch above at House of Cards.  I love this Doodlbug Hello Spring line from last y ear. I had actually used it all up and was able to get my hands on some more.  I also used a cute stamp set that I won from Joy's Life Stamps.  Of course I finished it off with some twine from The Twinery.

Celebrate SRM April Challenge

Here is my challenge card for SRM stickers.  I have so many wonderful stickers and it was such fun to play with them again.  I used the Triple Stamping method but with the stickers instead of with stamps.  Loving how it looks with the stickers and might have to try this again.  You can play along with the challenge here.

Happy Birthday Nana & Brennan- Creative Scrappers #265

We had so much fun and so many laughs at Nana's 75th the Brennan's 18th birthday party at our house on Sunday.  The cousins are so silly, we were just missing Colleen.  She would have jumped right in there for this photo.  Sean is so sweet and was so worried that he was going to hurt the kids.  Ness and I helped him get into position for the photo.

I bought a bunch of American Crafts project life papers and have not really done much with them.  This sketch by my friend Kristine Davidson at Creative Scrappers is a really fun one.  If you have time you mightr want to play along.

Enjoy Today House of Cards Photo/Color Inspiration

Pretty, country, chic. Love it.

Here is my card for the fifth week challenge at House of Cards.  I absolutely love this photo and wish I had that kitchen nook.  Love the colors.  It made me think of Hydrangeas.  I used Jamie Cripps Hydrangea cut file which you can find in the Silhouette Store.  I also won some wonderful stamps from Scrappy Mom's and used that for the sentiment.  Be sure to have fun playing along with this awesome challenge at House of Cards.

You Make Me So Happy

I have been wanting to scrap this photo for such a long time and fell in love with the most recent Creative Scrappers sketch.  It was so much fun to combine Crate Paper Oh Darling with October Afternoon's Girl Talk and Daily Flash.  I used some brand spankin' new Doodlebug washi tape, Chickaniddy enamel hearts and Queen & Co. Flair.  Love how it all works together.  Hope you have a chance to play along with this sketch.

Big Congrats and Silhouette Letter Placement Tutorial

Design ID #1568 

 Hi Everyone:

Happy Sunday.  I decided to play around with my Silhouette Cameo today to make some flour sack towels for a friend's daughter who recently got married and is expecting a baby.  This is not someone I know personally so I am extra excited to surprise her.  I used the Silhouette Brand Heat Transfer Fabric Interfacing which is so easy to use.  I manipulated the design a bunch for the monogram.  But today wanted to share how I used my Silhouette mat as a template for correct letter placement.  After I cut my letters out of fabric and gently pulled them off the impression was left in my mat of the sentiment.  I laid my mat on top of the towel and slid my letters under the mat until they were in the correct place.  I was so happy to have found this trick for getting my letters straight.  Love this Lori Whitlock card too.  So elegant.

Design ID #49546
This above photo on the right shows the letters a little off so that you can see how I moved them into place and even though my mat is getting pretty aged I could still easily see my words which made placing the letters a snap. I made this set for two challenges, both of which are ironically Anything Goes.
