I decorated these shirts & onsies for my 2 Grands and my little cousin. I was able to use two of the new Cricut lite carts for the baby girl onsies. I used the font from Lovely Floral and the heart is from Lacey Labels. SCAL was also used on the tee shirts and one of the onesies. TFL.
Today I received my order from Scrapyland.com. I ordered two of the new cutting/embossing folders and a Daisy Quilling set. I really love the new folders not just because they cut out a window, but because they are metal and gives a deeper, crisp embossed finish. Using my supplies that I received today I quickly put together this card. TFL.
Is this card too busy? I'm not sure..... I'm really enjoying making these easel cards! The bird house is from the Cindy Loo cart and the diecuts are from Marianne Designs. The little paper roses was made from the Sizzix Flowers, 3D die. Also, I used nesties & the MS butterfly punch. If you live in the US and want to purchase Marianne Design Dies, I provided a link for the store in the UK that I purchased from in the post below this one. TFL.
I'm so glad that Provo Craft made these Quilling Sets! The sets make it so easy to make 3D flowers. I don't have the Daisy set, but I will soon since I ordered it last night. This is my first project using one of the Cricut Lite Carts and I really love these carts since you don't have to do a lot of piecing to put your selected shape together. I also used Nesties & Marianne Designs Dies for this project. I purchased the Butterfly die from: http://www.countryviewcrafts.co.uk/marianne-design-148-c.asp TFL.
This is my entry for the challenge at the SSPT blog for this month. I don't intend on giving to card to anyone (since it is pink). I really made it try out my new Marianne Design Dies. I really like the look of this card. I will use some Cricut cuts on the next one. This is my first Easel card and the challenge at the SSPT blog was to use some type of stiching on your project. Since I don't sew I used the Tim Holtz piercing ruler to punch the holes and then I ran thread thru the holes with a needle. TFL.
Lately I have been visiting a lot of blogs and websites overseas and I noticed while they use a lot of the same tools that we use in the U.S., they also have some tools that haven't made it our way yet. So after seeing Marianne Design Creatables Dies I knew I had to get some! These dies emboss and cut just like Spellbinder dies, but their design are a little different and prettier in my opinion. Of course the shipping from the UK to here was a little high, but it was so worth it for me. I will try to make something with them ASAP and post here. TFL.
I ordered this Ribbon Organizer & Dispenser from Paper Wishes Catalog eariler last week and received it yesterday. I was surprised to see it shipped so soon. The organizer is made to hold 30 spools of ribbon, but I have 39 spools in it because I was able to double some of my narrow rolls of ribbon. The rolling tool is very easy to use. I'm ready to order more units to put the rest of my ribbon in. TFl.
Lately, I have been doing a lot of purchasing and no creating. I cleaned up my Scrap Room two weeks ago and it is so clean that I don't want to mess it up again. Soon I will have to start working on my project for the SSPT Blog's current challenge which has to incoporate "Stitches" into whateverI decide to make. I will be "cheating" that is the reason I bought the Tim Holtz ruler (it has piercing holes in it that I can used to make faux stitching. The Walmart that I went to had all of the lite carts except for Carousel and I really wanted that one. Now, off I go to pratice doing faux sticthing.
I need help with chalking my bears and putting their bodies together. I watched a video on chalking on Youtube, but it didn't help me much. I'm not going to let my paper go to waste I'm going to find a project to use these bears on. I love the Chrysantheme Quilling set. I can see myself using those dies a lot. The rose flower isn't from Cuttlebug I just included it in the picture because I think it is so cute. It is from Sizzix, it is called flowers 3-D. I really like being able to make flowers that can really match my projects.
Look what came in the mail today......I really work my mail man. I can't wait to try these. I just finished cutting out some paper piecings with my E from Little Scraps Of Heaven and I'm going to chalk them and put them together. After they are completed I will try out the quilling kits. I like the Chrysanthemum the best.
My ink pad storage shelf came via UPS today. I ordered it from Organize More. They make a lot of neat things to help crafters keep their areas organized. Just what I need. My shelf holds 80 ink pads and since I just completed an Ink Club with Snowmanlover there won't be much space left on this shelf. I'm going to hang my shelf on the wall in my Craft Room. Here is a link to the store they personally hand craft every shelf. http://www.organizemore.com
I haven't posted a picture of her in a while, but here she is my little assistant. She is going to be a great paper crafter when she gets older. When she gets quiet I know that she is in her room creating something to surprise me!
