You Light Up My Nights - Lori Whitlock Project

Hi everyone! It's my turn over at Lori Whitlock's blog today and I created this cute mason jar shaker card using one of the new shaker files. If you haven't already definitely check them out, these are so fun to make and people really enjoy receiving them. Lori also added a bunch of new shaped cards in the shop, which I totally love too!

For the card I used SSDE and duplicated the front piece and did a mirror image above, nudged down and welded them together to form my card base. Then I assembled the jar and glued it to the card base. For the firefly I used the busy as a bee and duplicate the wings, the cute little face is from Peachy Keens In the Garden assortment set. The green stems are modern flowers and I used some red stickles. The blue polka dot flowers are from the 3D flower set 11 and the butterfly is from the 3 butterflies 2 set. I used a peachy keen sentiment from A Little Light Camping, paper is Echo Park's We Are Family designed by Lori, beautiful paper!!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful day!!

I'm so excited about all the shakers Lori came out with last week.  I used the butterfly and also used it to make the cutout in the bag to match.

The card base, For You is also Lori's I downloaded it from the Silhouette Online Store.
The stamp sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Simple Sayings.

I love all of Lori's gift bags, this one is definitely one of my favorites, instead of folding flat over it has about a 1/4" fold at the top.  For the top flap I duplicated the bag and cut off the top piece in SSDE and used different paper.

The digital paper is from the Silhouette Online Store.

Hello everyone!  It's my turn to host a Link Up party over at Lori Whitlock's blog!
My theme is a Color/Photo Inspiration from the photo below.

Create a project using this photo as inspiration, you can choose to use the color palette or pull your own colors from it or maybe some of the textures, just have fun!!

Here's what I came up with...

As you can see the colors aren't exact, but I wanted to use Lori's digital paper Sweet Memories, the roses just reminded me of the pretty floral pattern paper.  The card is one of Lori's new ones, Flower Card 3, I added the love to the banner and also two leaves from the 4 fall leaves set.

Thanks for stopping by, I'm looking forward to what you come up with!!

National Scrapbook Day 2014!

I don't do scrapbook pages which is so weird because that's the reason I bought a cutting machine in the first place.  I thought I'd get all my photos together and create some pages, but instead I started doing cards and 3D projects.  One of these days I'm definitely going to start, just really need to get my photos all scanned and printed out.

Well here is a digital one I did for today's Echo Park challenge using their Photo Freedom Fun in the Sun collection.  I actually did this in SSDE, it's truly amazing what can really be done in that program besides just cutting from it.  This was done very quickly and I did a print to PDFCreator and saved as a jpg.

This is my youngest son Willie in all the photos, it's from a couple of years ago on a family vacation in the Outer Banks, we rented a house with some friends and had such a wonderful time.  My husband Al is with him in the top-right photo and the two others are our friends children.
