Fries Before Guys

28 07 2017

I have a daughter who LOVES fries. I guess it’s only natural since she’s obsessed with potatoes. She’s even tried growing some spuds.

With school starting up soon, I wanted to remind her of her priorities 😉

She’s got plenty of time to get her heart broken, I want her to have a season of fun and light heartedness, so we’re totally pushing this fry thing 😉

A Card For the Baby Shower Gift

24 06 2017

I was excited to remember I had a file for a card with an umbrella and I thought it would go well with the umbrella gift bag. I changed it up a bit, used the same color scheme and some of the papers from the gift so they’re coordinated 🙂


Thanks for stopping by!

Babies, Part 2

23 06 2017

Here’s the second set of baby cards. I have to admit, I’m kind of in love with this set. It turned out better than I thought it would 🙂


The designed the card in Craft Artist 2 and imported it into my silhouette work space to do a print & cut. I used my prismacolor pencils to better define the flower.

Here’s the difference he pencils make. I like the added contrast 🙂


For the umbrella bag (this was an adorable design in an Easter kit, but it worked well for this) I added the digital papers I used to design the card into the Patterns folder in my library so my bag coordinated with my cards. I had some extra vinyl left from my Father’s Day project, so I used that instead of paper for baby Finley’s name 🙂

I absolutely love how this project turned out. Hopefully, my sister-in law will, too!

Of Storms and Father’s Day

23 06 2017

We had some strong storms come through this past weekend. We lost power for a few hours. This always scares me. We have a couple of salt water aquariums that together equal over 200 gallons, then there’s the sump which has even more water (filtration and heating the water happen here). Without power, we can’t heat or circulate the water, and our small oceans may die. But after the power came back on, we were still without internet for a few more days. I’m finally getting some things back on track 🙂

So. Father’s Day. Even with the storms, it was nice to celebrate with my daddy and also thank my husband for the awesome men they are.

My daddy’s card: my parents RV. I’m a little jealous. I want to trade places with them sometimes, but I don’t think they’d let me 😉 Since a lot of us were together this weekend, I took advantage of that and secretly had everyone sign his card before giving it to him 🙂

For my husband: We went with the baseball theme 🙂 I used vinyl on this cute…I’m not sure what to call this, but I found it at Hobby Lobby 🙂 and then, a box card (I kind of really love box cards).

A little background: the last few years have been kind of tough. We seem to be in reactionary mode most of the time. I’m so over reactionary mode. This quote reminded me I don’t necessarily need to be passive. I don’t have to wait for something to happen. I can take steps to stop or limit some of these things and I can come out swinging when I need to.


It’s hard to tell in the picture, but the baseball has some 3D action going on. And the box card has a family picture on it. I wanted something he could easily take to work if he wanted.

One Last Birthday Card

28 05 2017

A third of our family’s birthdays are in the month of May. We wrapped the birthdays up today with my oldest turning 20.

20!

I’m having a hard time believing that this amazing boy in now 20.

Anyway, here’s his birthday card. It’s from the kit named Sunday With Dad over at http://www.svgcuts.com.

The meat, cheese, tomato, lettuce, and onion were cut out on white paper. I used my copics and prismacolor pencils to color them (obviously, you can cut them out of whatever color you like. I just really like to color).

Thanks for stopping by 🙂





Mad Hatter Tea Party Set

19 04 2017

I’ve been a little busy  – but with paper! This is a project I’ve wanted to do for quite some time now. About a year, really. I used a bunch of different kits and files to complete the set. I used it for a center piece last night, and soon, it’s going to a friend of mine 🙂

Here’s the kit as a whole (minus the pedestal – I’m keeping that).

And the individual pieces.

Spring Box Card

19 02 2017

I’m kind of in love with box cards. This one is part of the Springtime Box cards kit from SVG Cuts.

One of the things I like about floral box cards is the ability to give flowers that last longer than traditional flowers and don’t cause allergic reactions 😉

This card is nice and simple to put together. You can do it quickly, or take some time adding details to the stems and flowers.

I cut the tulip bulbs out on white cardstock then used my copics to color them 🙂 I used my prismacolor pencils to add shading and highlighting on the stems. The little paper beside it is for the greeting. I’ll add this to the back after it’s signed. This kit also contains envelopes for each card. Let’s face it, non-traditional cards don’t fit into traditional envelopes 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
