Silhouette Card

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.

Pin Wheels!

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).

Curious Scrapper

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!
