Get Well Soon Blossoms

9 08 2018

Life isn’t perfect.

Sometimes you need a get well soon card. But these are SO much better than sympathy cards, so I’m happy to do make them 🙂

I used Penny Black’s The Unfolding stamp for this. There’s masking, inking, platform stamping, watercolor blending, colored pencil work, markers, and just the tiniest bit of sparkle (which you can’t see in this picture but I wish you could).

Color Guard Shirts!

5 08 2018

Sometimes, I do this thing. My fingers type faster than my brain processes situations. For example, when the color guard moms are talking about ordering shirts to remind the band kids to keep clear so they don’t get hit, and my fingers volunteer to help.

So my fingers volunteered me Saturday to make shirts for the color guard. There’s six kiddos on the squad and two of them are mine. I think that’s why my fingers went crazy.

But we kept it simple and it was the weekend so I had some back up for keeping kids occupied while I worked on the shirts.

Here’s what we came up with.

That Time I Made Some Box Cards…Again

2 08 2018

I really do love box cards, probably because I love dimension. Creating something 3D out of paper always seems like magic to me, even though it’s not new.

So, here are a couple of box cards.

This one can be found in the Silhouette Design Store and was for someone in the hospital.

This one can be found at SVG Cuts. I made it for a friend of mine who unexpectedly lost her dog last week. I had NO idea she had a thing for hummingbirds, but she does, so this was a perfect fit.

That Time I Made Some Cards

So that title might be a little misleading…I seem to always be making cards, lol. But here’s some you may not have seen yet.

Trying my hand at water coloring…I think this was my first try. It’s okay. It’s not going to win any awards, but it wasn’t bad enough to toss.

I had THREE birthday boys in May…I need to figure out where the other card went. But here’s two of them 🙂 I was able to color the one on the left with copics as well as parts of the one on the right.Craft Project 4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sometimes, you just have to color a rose 🙂

And this caterpillar is *so* cute. I totally “borrowed” this idea from Sandy Allnock. She did it for Autism Awareness month back in April. I used it as a birthday card 🙂

I Still Play With Paper, Too

30 07 2018

I posted a lot of vinyl projects today, but I still play with paper, too 🙂 Here’s a gift set of cards all tucked away in a cute little purse bag.

My husband needed to congratulate a friend of his on a pretty big accomplishment, so I made this for him to use.

Boys Get Cute Vinyl, Too

30 07 2018

Right now, the 2yo is like this really adorable octopus when we’re trying to get him dressed. We have cute little suits for church, but some Sunday mornings they just aren’t worth the hassle. I used my Cameo and my heat press to create an easy option for those busy mornings.

My 6yo had an exciting summer so far. He got to go to camp! It was his reward for having some good days after a 4 week long power struggle and I wanted it to be extra special. So I made him a personalized camp bag. I was hoping for a draw string bag, but found a $2.00 back pack that worked just fine 🙂

I Vinyled Some Things…Again

30 07 2018

I never thought I’d decorate my Silhouette Cameo, but then I saw this vinyl, found this Sagittarius design, and then a little bit of mental instability hit.

I decorated my machine.

Here’s the outcome.

I may have gone a little Sagittarius crazy and decorated my cell phone case, too…
