New Sweatshirt LOVE

I had been trying to come up with a design so I could make a sweatshirt for my friend. I tried a few different designs until I finally came up with this one.  I LOVE it.  har har har.  I can't wait to have time to make one for myself too.

The second picture's a little blurry but I added an arrow down the left sleeve too.

Skeeter's Dog Bowl

I got this adorable ceramic dog bowl from celebrating homes for my best friend's puppy.  It was pretty great on it's own but I knew it had to be personalized and since I had the supplies, why not?!? using black vinyl, I cut out his name and a few doggy shapes.  
She loved it.  Makes me smile when that happens :)

Kind Thanks

Ok, so I bought these brads when my husband and I took a trip to visit family in Missouri.  I have been wanting to use them since then but have not stepped outside of my paper and pop-dots box to try them out.  I recently sent a package to a friend of mine and came up with an idea I couldn't pass up.

I cut out these adorable 3-d flowers, chalked the edges with a color that accented the paper, and curled up the edges.  I stacked the layers together and held them with the brads.  
I used the cuttlebug and small dots folder to make the background and of course found a perfect jaded blossom sentiment to use.  

I don't typically re-make cards but this is one that I can use for many occasions.

Oh Dear, it's a shape card

I wanted to make something different for my husband's grandfather's Birthday card this year.  I always find it challenging to create cards for men.  It's hard to keep it simple with no stitching, gems, ribbon, etc.  I scanned through the Silhouette Store and found this cutie.  

I think this is one of my favorites, I'll be making this card again in the future!

~ Enjoy!~

Happy Boss's Day!

This post is a month or so behind schedule but hey... better late than never :)

I created these cards for our team to sign and give to our team lead and manager at work. 
They were both very simple to make and were loved by everyone.

For the first one, I used the jaded blossom flag dies and chalked all the edges then layered them.  I also used their boss's day sentiment.

The second card, I used my cuttlebug with embossing folders.  added some ribbon and some jaded blossom again.

~ Enjoy!~

I mustache you a question... sweatshirt

I was so excited to try heat transfer for the first time.  I had a few sheets of glitter HTV saved up and once I decided what to make, I went to work.

I kept it simple for my first project.  I bought a set of mustaches from the silhouette online store and cut them out with different colors.

I had a lot of fun making this, and Miss. Dani was so excited she was jumping up and down with excitement.  She was even more excited when I told her I made it and that no one else would have one like it.  :)  It's the little things that make little ones happy.
