Have I said that I love my Silhouette machine that I got for Christmas? I do love it. I made this very simple card with the snowman. It is snowing here today so it's totally fun! I have also decorated some shirts with rhinestones but haven't figured out how to take good pictures of them yet. When I do you will see them there because I love the bling.
Another LO today. This weeks challenge from May Flaum was to use paper and pen. So I did a little doodling (not very much) and traced my chipboard letters. I think I just need to keep my pen out and think about what it can add to a page. I'm also very excited to be scrapping a current picture!
Week 3 in my online class that I love was about using paint and a little glitter. Not sure that I like this layout but it was fun stamping with paint and using stickles around my photo. trying to get a feel for being a little messy. This week is about using your pens so I'm going to try a little doodling.
This weeks Make it Monday challenge over at PapertreyInk was to use pinwheels! I hadn't made anything with this current trend so I thought I would give it a try. I used my Silhouette to cut them out. It took me a couple of tries to get them the right size. I wanted three on my card and they turned out big. I can't wait to make one using a 12 x 12 piece of paper. So this is a pretty simple card. I am totally into using mist right now. I just spray everything when I'm done. Can't see the shimmer but you can see the splotches. I love it.
Okay after I posted the first card I put it on Papertreys blog and there was a card by Kathy Mc that inspired me to get out my fence die and make two more cards, since I already had extra pin wheels! I think they are cuter than my first attempt. Thanks for the inspiration Kathy.
This week my May Fluam class challenge was to stamp. I love stamping on my scrap book pages so I'm sure I will have another post but I needed to make a birthday tag so here it is. I used ink and paint to stamp as well as four different stamp sets. I also sprayed some glimmer mist and used washi tape for my tag string (lifting that idea from Tim Holzt).
Hello, long time no blog. I am taking another fun class from big picture classes. It's called The Curious Scrapbookers Field Guide. Every week May Flaum talks and shows us a fun thing to do with different products. The first week was mist. My nieces were here last week end so I just had to scrap this picture. I cut the wings and doily out with my new Silhouette. Love that machine!
Today's card is for the Happy Mail Challenge over at Big Picture Classes. This challenge was to use twine. I tried to get a little creative but there are already some really cute cards posted for this challenge. I use the doodle bug twine a lot so it's fun to see what everyone else does with it and lift some ideas. Here is a link if you want to join in the twine fun. http://www.bigpictureclasses.com/blog/happy-mail-challenge-4-tie-it-up.html
