Live Laugh Love Shadowbox

Hello Everyone - Hope you had a fabulous weekend. We have one more week of school in our house so the excitement for summer is building!

Today I have a fun shadowbox to share with you.

I used Fleurette Bloom’s I’m Wishing 3D SVG Kit to create the shadowbox.
It was so incredibly easy to put together.
(Here’s a look at the entire kit)

After the shadowbox was created I then cut the circle shapes from the Lace card that comes with the kit. I added foam core to add dimension.

I then cut and added the Live, Laugh and Love titles from the Live, Laugh, Love 3D SVG Cut Files from Fleurette Bloom.

I created a video if you’d like to see how it all goes together 
(sorry about the quality…I'm still trying to figure out this whole video deal!)

Please stop by Fleurette Bloom’s Site to check out these amazing kits.

Mini Golf & Giveaway Winner

Happy Mother’s Day to all!

I have a Miss Kate Cuttables’ Design Team project to share with you today. 
Here is my pocket page layout I created last week on National Scrapbook Day.

I love using the pen tool for my journaling. 

The font is MK Tall & Skinny Font from Miss Kate Cuttables.

My title image with the golf green was too wide to fit into one of the pockets so I just trimmed it and placed into the second pocket too. I like how it turned out.

Last week I posted a GIVEAWAY!
Congrats to Josie0602
She wrote:

Spring Table Runner

Well I have a lot of "Firsts" to share with you today. 
I'm sharing a Spring Table Runner today - it’s the first project I created with fabric I cut on my Silhouette Cameo. 
It’s also my first table runner. I've only used my sewing machine to sew on scrapbook layouts.

I used Miss Kate Cuttable files and cut the SVGs on my Cameo. Check out all the details here.

Here is where the other "first" comes into play...I created my first how to video.
Let’s just say it was a learning experience and I have some ideas on how to improve future videos.
Please check it out and let me know what you think!

Here are a few other photos of my table runner.
If you are an expert seamstress and have any tips - Please leave me a comment!

 Please stop over to the Miss Kate Cuttables Blog and don’t forget to grab the freebie of the day!

Easter Treats

Two blog posts in two days! Wishing everyone a Happy Easter. Seems like lately I've been speed crafting. I remember back when I went to art school I'd sometimes procrastinate and work all night to get a project done. Well now in my life I'm not procrastinating I'm just busy!

Here are my Easter Treats created in about an hour (Easter Morning):

I cut the One Piece Egg Basket from the Easter Treats SVG Kit from Fleurette Bloom.
My patterned paper from Echo Park was rather thin paper so I cut the Egg Basket from sold card stock and cut my patterned paper in an oval shape and applied to the sold card stock.

I added some ribbon and also cut the tag from the same kit. I just hand lettered the tags.

Here is a look at the entire kit - It’s fabulous for Easter and Spring Projects.

It’s a sunny day where I live - hope it’s nice where you are.

Happy Easter Peeps!

Hello Everyone! Hope you have having a fantastic Easter weekend. I had a great time planning my son’s 4th grade Spring Party yesterday. When planning a party I like to work with a theme and our theme was a peep party. The little bunny peeps are so popular now.

 For my projects I used the Peeps Bunnies file from Fleurette Bloom.

I used the file to create the party bags. I printed them out on 8.5" x 11" paper and added to bag.
I did the peeps in different colors.

For the craft I picked up cups at the Dollar Tree.

 I cut the peep file out of vinyl on my Cameo and also cut dots in various colors.
I added transfer tape to the bunnies and the kids did a great job applying the peeps to the cups.
I took cloths for the kids to hold the cups in place.

The dots did not require the transfer tape.

 Here is my Tim with his finished cup. The kids loved the craft.


Here’s a look at the game and snack:

 Last but not least I made myself a shirt for the party. Here’s a Pre-Party Selfie :)

I took the Silhouette Fusible Fabric Stabilizer and ironed on to the cotton fabric.

Keep the white backer on and place it face down on the mat. 
I cut the peep file from Fleurette Bloom and ironed on to the shirt.
I also cut the wording and bunny outline in the silver heat transfer material.

I used the offest and internal offset to create the outline of the peeps.

Thanks for stopping by today - Hope you liked my peep party projects!
Have a Happy Easter!
