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!
