Rhylan's Invites

Funny to say this but I bought a Silhouette just to make these invites. LOL! I really did but I am super glad with my purchase and now use it for most of my cutting. I also LOVE the print and cut feature with the Silhouette. You use your own printer and then use the silhouette to cut it out after you have printed it. The silhouette software will also take images from the internet and turn them into images that can then be cut out. That is how I made the Girl Angry Bird. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this feature!

I made the back with the print and cut feature. I am so happy with how they turned out. Was not so happy when I realized I needed to make 25 of them.

Myah's Birthday Invite

I love using My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up to make super quick birthday invites. My girlfriend was looking for some Owl invites and was having a hard time finding any she liked. I used my computer and the My Digital Studio software and came up with this cute and personalized birthday invite. When she was done we sent it to our local photo lab and for $0.09 each she had some super cute invites. You could also chose to print them at home but I find that with all the colour it uses a lot of ink.

Nash's April Baby Book Page

Here is another layout for my nephew's baby book. I always find 8x8 album pages hard as you can only squeeze so many pictures on a page. I believe the inspiration for this layout came from a 8x8 album that my girlfriend Donna made. My group of scrapbooking friends have made a few of these albums over the years, I love to go back through them to help get some ideas for layouts and picture placements. Not a big fan of how this turned out in the photo but in person the colours look a lot better and it seems to go together better.

Nash's March Page

This is from my Nephew's Baby book that I made in the spring. Some of my Blog post never made it up when life started to get a little on the hectic side, so now I am playing catch up. These pages are made for a 8x8 album that will follow his whole first year. On the left is a spot to put a picture and on the right is where my sister-in-law can write about all of his special moments.

I used the Baby Kit from CTMH along with my Cricut to create the page. The calendar is made using the My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up.

March Stamping Six

This is the card I made for one of my Stamping Six Gatherings way back in March.

We started with a piece of Baked Brown Sugar and stamped it with the new Wood background using Baked Bown Sugar Ink.  We used some Retro Fresh This and That Washi Tape on the left corner.  We made the tag using the Chalk Talk stamp set and some Coastal Cabana ink. We then used the Chalk Talk Framelits to cut out the tag. We the stamped the tag again with Tangerine Tango and cut out the "something" banner and glued it on the tag. In the corners we used a needle to add a string of
linen thread. We then added a pewter brad and hung our tag over the brad. We used some foam squares to attach the tag and finished it off with some ribbon and a button.

A Chic Birthday

Happy Birthday Jenny!

I made this card for my sister-in-law. I used a old stamp set from Stampin' Up. I then paper pieced her pants and bag. I then coloured the rest of her with my copies. The pattern paper is from the new Designer Series Paper "Flowerpot". The paper flower are from my stash of Flowers and the ribbon is Daffodil Delight Tafetta ribbon that has now been discontinued.

Sawyer's 1st Birthday!

Happy 1st Birthday to my nephew Sawyer!

I made this card for my nephews first birthday. His middle name is fox and thanks to it being one of the most popular animals this last year it has been turning up on everything. I have been collecting some pretty cute stamp sets with foxes in them. This one is from CTMH, it was the stamp of the month this past January. This little fox is usually holding a flower but that just wouldn't work for this card so I eliminated it before I stamped him. Then I covered up the little bit that I couldn't get rid of with a present. I then stamped the heart from the same stamp set cut off the bumps and turned it into a hat. I then added a mini pom pom to the top. All of the patter paper is from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack in the new Stampin' Up catalogue. To finish off the card I used three CTMH white enamel stars and coloured them with a copic to match the card base colour.
