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 . . . and all of you . . . a white background is your challenge this week! Take a look at a favorite magazine, something like Real Simple. Find a “sketch” or layout of something you’d like to recreate and do it! :)

Susy, you are so not forgiven about eating fresh-from-the-tree apples right now. ;) Maybe I need to come down and help you eat . . . uhhh . . I mean pick them. As for the font I used? Well, it’s specially made. I hope to have it available some day. I’ll let you know when I do.

Kathy, yes, I’m doing 8 1/2 x 11 pages these days. I don’t really know why I decided to start doing it other than I felt like simplifying, which meant that the 8 1/2 x 11 format was much easier for me to work with–even after years of 12×12. I’m into that clean style these days and the small format does lend itself to a “magazine” look much easier. Been workin’ for me. Lovin’ it. Funny thing is too, I’m putting more photos on these pages than I ever did on 12×12. Strange.

Have y’all got your green on?
