Man, I've been going to share some photos that my son sent for days now. Yeah, it's Thursday . . . I know. I've also got some photos of Jordan's play to share too. Been catching a couple of the matinees this week to get some good photos for their memorabilia. There just aren't enough hours in the day . . . month? . . . year? So, since I can't manage any of that at the moment, first I wanted to tell you that I will be at the Silhouette booth at the Scrapbook Expo during the day tomorrow [...]
I don't think I've made this many pages in a week since my QVC days! lol My son recently sent some photos (it's about time!). I LOOOOOVE this photo he sent and had to use it on a page (the big one). He also e-mailed me with something really sweet about how he's growing. I felt it was a little too personal to share it all, but you get the gist of it. The photo and the journailng worked perfectly together. I want to blow this picture up and put it on display while he's gone. He took it. That's [...]
So, because it's St. Patrick's Day today, it inspired me to make a page about my family and just how lucky I am to have them in my life. I'm using the new fonts that are up in the Silhouette store. That's right, FONTS! [Fonts: LD This & That (highlight words), LD Remington Portrait (journaling). Shapes: flourish_2447 (rhinestone), flourish 2442, frame_1507, dragonfly_tab_C00212_19547, clock_face_2465 (print & cut), background_polkadot_uneven_2467 (for use as a painting template)] For all the details, check out the Silhouette Blog HERE. Everything, except for the "family" rub-on was is from or cut from Silhouette. So Amy . . [...]
[Shapes: leaf_branch_C00009_27205, phrase_fresh_2463, borderlines_2405] I can just taste those juicy apples in my mouth! Oh, they were so divine! Six more months to eat them again. Gotta be fall. Need that cool crisp infusion of flavor. mmmmmmm..... I do believe I have a disease. I can't break away from white backgrounds! I just love how it makes all the photos and colors pop. I swear, each time I start out to make a page, I have great intentions of using patterned paper, mixing it up, something! I just can't help myself though. I love WHITE! And I find that rather [...]
We've had vinyl on sale this week in the Silhouette store. If you haven't checked out some of the cool things people are making on the blog, go. So here's a wee bit of fun that I had with my vinyl this week: You can see all my Europe pictures in the background there....better than seeing my face in the reflection. ;) I played off Loni Stevens' shape alphabet_love_sideline_tabs_C00106_19547 (one of my favorite Print & Cuts!) and created my own rendition for vinyl. You could also recreate it using these shapes along with your own "love" word in the middle: [...]
I made this fun little item using heat transfer for the Scrapbook Trends blog today. It's words to describe Jordan . . . if you couldn't tell. Of course, it wasn't until this morning that i realized that 'sociable' and 'friendly' pretty much mean the same thing. ;) But when I wrote the two words, I was thinking at how she does so well with others in social settings and then also wanted a word to describe her as being a good friend. So, it's still a little different. I know what I meant. lol To see all the details [...]
Okay, so this page is more in reference to Jordan's love for her new iPod as well as the photography that she won it for, but I just had to play off of it and express my love for Silhouette too. Seriously. Could just scrap with cardstock and my Silhouette and be happy as a clam. So tell me . . . What's your favorite thing about Silhouette? What do you love about it? [shapes: flower_border_C00368_18816, paper_clip_set_C20090902002632_18816, circle_flower_C00321_18816, negative_strip_distressed_2355, file_folder_1745] Look closely at that flower paper clip. It's actually cut from fuzzy vinyl! I love doing tone-on-tone. Gives it [...]
. . . into a super fun day?Play some Earth, Wind and Fire and get your groove on.Makes work a whole lot more fun.Good thing there's no one around to watch my crazy dance moves while sitting in my chair.
Jen McGuire did a video on how to use the Hero Arts stamps with their Silhouette shapes. LOVE this project! She is the queen of stamping, that's for sure!
It was 50+ degrees yesterday and should be again today.It's getting lighter earlier and lighter longer.It's 6:10 a.m. right now.I'm sitting at my desk where I usually am at this time.I actually hear a bird chirping.I think that truly is the first sign of spring.Can't wait.(weather man says it's suppose to snow today though. what???)
