Oh Baby!

Today, I am sharing my second reveal for Shawn Davis Designs. Focusing on the adorable chipboard pieces in the kit, I made a centerpiece/gift, invitation, and cupcakes for a baby boy shower.

I started by creating a little banner to decorate the basket. The pennant pieces were cut using the Cricut Expression and Country Life Cartridge.

I created wraps for the bottles and diapers buy punching a border and stitching it to at plain strip. I cut frames using my Spellbinders dies, then attached a chipboard piece in the center.

The cupcake wrappers and toppers were cut using the Cricut Expression and Life’s A Party cartridge.

Also using Life’s A Party, I cut the onesie card and decorated it with another of the chipboard pieces.

It’s Monday morning, and time to reveal sketch #175 at Nuts About Sketches! I’ve really loved working with Shawn’s sketches, and I hope you take time to check them out!

I used masks and mists on the pink background.

I used a couple colors of mists on the doily, as well.

I had so much fun adding layers of diecuts and flowers! The doily and flourishes were cut using dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.

My layout was created using the beautiful goodies found in the August Limited Edition Kit from My Creative Scrapbook.

Moving on before I get all sappy…

The chipboard pieces Shawn included in the kit are so adorable!!

The flourish, butterflies, and doily are dies from Cheery Lynn Designs! They are sooo beautiful and I just can't get enough of them!!!

I cut the hearts by free hand, embossed them with my Cuttlebug, then inked. I ahered all chipboard, hearts, and butterflies with pop dots.

Have a super day!

Precious Memories

I’m here today with another Nuts About Sketches reveal! #173
I was tickled that my son and his girlfriend would pose for a photo! The photo turned out great and I new right away that I wanted to do something with a romantic feel. My July kit from My Creative Scrapbook contained just the perfect papers from Websters Pages and My Minds eye, as well as gorgeous Prima embellishments, combined with the gorgeous dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and I was all set!

Here is a close up showing the inticate detail of the English Tea Doily die.  Isn't that just the sweetest dainty touch layered in there! Aren't those flourishes just the perfect added detail?  I fussy cut the gazebo as well as some flowers from the Websters Pages papers.  I layered the flowers here and there attaching some with pop dots for dimension.

I just looove the Exotic Butterflie dies!! I adhered both butterflies with pop dots for a bit more dimension.

I also fussy cut the journaling block and adhered with pop dots.

Thanks for stopping by!!

An exciting moment

I am so excited and happy to share with you that I was asked to Guest Design at Cheery Lynn Designs today!! Since we will be celebrating my grandmothers birthday later in the month, I chose to create a birthday card. The doily dies are so beautiful and intricate. Using the English Tea Party Die, I cut the doily from BoBunny Gabrielle Romance, adding just the perfect feminine touch to these gorgeous BoBunny papers. The Exotic Butterfly mini dies were cut from the Gabrielle Flight paper.  I added a little stickles. Aren’t they gorgeous?! The flourish die is also from Cheery Lynn Designs (Fanciful Flourish) and is a definite favorite of my stash!!
I’ve also used the BoBunny card sketch to create my card. If you haven’t created  a card yet, there is still time to play along!
A huge thank you to Cheery Lynn Designs for having me over today!! Hop on over and say hi, then check out the delicious dies in the store!

Thanks for stopping by!

All Aboard!!

Hello! I came back from vacation to have my computer crash a couple days later! Aack! Thankfully they were able to recover all my info and photos! Whew! This was the 4th trip to the shop since the beginning of the year! Hopefully we’ve got all issues resolved now!

Here is another project I created with my Shawn Davis Designs kit. Shawn sent me this adorable little Maya Road train mini album along with these adorable My Minds Lime Twist papers. I compiled some of my favorite photos of both my boys together through out the years.
As always, click on any photo to enlarge.

A closeup of the back cover.To create the wheels, I cut circles with my cricut. Then, again using the cricut, I cut rings slightly smaller and adhered them with pop dots for a bit of dimension and interest.
