This first one is the anniversary card I made for my lovely folks, who just celebrated their 67th anniversary...my oh my...is that a long time to be with someone or what! They set such a good example for their kids...all of them followed it but me...LOL....
All of it was cut from files from the Silhouette store and the sentiment was sketched with a white paint pen using the Silhouette. The ribbon was colored with my markers to kind of match the pearls. The ribbon was also folded in half as it was wider than I wanted but I didn't have any narrow. I have tons of ribbon but never seems like I have the right color or size when I need it. I tried adding some shading to my leaves but need to practice that a lot more!
This next card was made with my brother in mind. He loves to go Crow hunting...why? I have no idea!
Next up, an anniversary card for Greg and Kristen...this one just didn't come together like I had in mind but since I procrastinate so bad, it had to do or they wouldn't get one at all.
And last, but the best in my opinion, is a gift I made for my new great niece. I got this idea from
Erin Lincoln. I've had it pinned for over 2 years just waiting on someone to have a baby...LOL...since the shower was after Sadie was born, I was able to personalize it quite a bit.
Well, I was going to give credit for the dress file but can't seem to find the designer and there is no credit page in the file with the dress. Anyway, I bought it from someone and traced it in the Silhouette program and cut it out. You can't see it in the pic very well, but I cut the bow, trim around the neck and the cuff of the sleeves twice and added it to the front of the dress for dimension. Then I used my markers to add shading on the dress front. I really like how that turned out! Cut a tag from some pattern stock I had on hand and added a circle to the hole. Oh, forgot, I also made the hanger out of some wire I had. All the paper is from Daisy & Company. I added some glitter paper to the clothespin and some buttons and twine. I made the bags on the sewing machine...yep, I can still sew! LOL....and cut the designs out on the Silhouette and adhered them with their bonding material. I had the no sew bonding but when I make this again, I'm going to buy the sewing kind...I want the recipient to be able to wash them. The next image will show the individual bags. Each bag held a diaper, wipes, hand sanitizer and a plastic bag for disposal. Everything for a quick change. The idea is to be able to just grab a bag when you are just running to the store or on an errand and not going to be gone long but want to have it just in case. I believe it was quite the hit with the mom!
Well, that's all for now...need to get lots of stuff done today as my friend and I are headed to the city in the morning for a weekend at the craft show!
