Bella LO | Timeless Twine

Today I am sharing this LO of my goddaughter over at Timeless Twine
I used the Black Coffee twine to wrap around the butterfly, the antlers, the "fly path" and to tie some on each button.

The stamps "preciosa-adorable-princesita-heart" are from Dilo En Español "Mi Bebe" and "Que Siga La Fiesta" collections. The date was stamped with a regular date stamper found at any office supply store. The @ the park is my handwriting.
The flower, butterfly and banners were cut using dies from PPI and all PP is from SEI collections you can find over at Happy N Scrappin'

Thanks for visiting!

Remember that I have a Giveaway for a Cricut Expression book.  Entries accepted until Sunday!  HERE

Thank You Cards Tutorial

I am really into using dies right now, Love them!  There is something about the smooth edges... speaking of smooth this technique creates a very smooth design.

Today I created this tutorial to share over at She'sASassyLady

I first die cut the "thanks" die using kraft paper,
-took the die cut word out
-attached the negative panel to my black card

-after cutting the "thanks" word out of pattern paper
-I fit them into the empty spaces on my kraft panel using adhesive
-done!  Smooth and simple!!

You can leave it as very smooth and simple or embellish as desired!
For my second or bottom card, I needed black pearls (and I did not have) so I colored some white ones using a black Copic marker.

Thanks for stopping by!

Project Life | Week 15

Week 15 was a fun and quick spread/layout to create.

Since I had used Design G for my right page on Week 14, I had to use the same Design G for my left page while scrapping Week 15.

This week was really simple and fast by using the sheet of journal cards from the Jillibean Southern Chicken Dumpling Soup Collection.  All I really did was cut them up, write my entries and insert them on the 3x4 spots.

I used cutting files from the Silhoutte online store and my Cameo to decorate/embellish my two 4x6 cards/spots on the left page.  The bottom 4x6 card base is from the Clementine collection.
 Just added a few stickers and used some of the PP from the 3 Bugs in a Rug One Fine Day collection.
 I cut the grass edge with a Memory Box die.
Thanks for visiting!
Will probably be back as soon as tomorrow to share Week 16!

Basic Supplies:

Additional Supplies in addition to cutting files from Silhouette online store:
Cross - Easter - egg - bunny feet

Project Life | Week 14 - Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day

Today I am sharing my Project Life Week 14

I love it that week 14 starts on April 1!... was able to add an April 2012 file from the Silhouette online store to start my spread or layout.
I used a stamp set from Technique Tuesday/Ali Edwards to all my journal cards using Stampin Up inks to match my Echo Park paper.  The week 14 card is another file from the Silhouette online store.
For my left page I used a Design A protector and for my right page I used a smaller protector - Design G that accommodates two landscape 6x4 and two portrait 4x6 photos and only two journal cards.  This work perfect for the pictures I had taken this week!
The Currently files is another file from the Silhouette online store.  I really like these files with the thin overlay that my Cameo cuts so clean!
 Here you can see that I am ready to finish with week 15 -- my grand baby Jasmine modeling a green shirt and Lauren doing laundry -- I will be posting/sharing week 15 on Tuesday.
Here a closer look at the stamped journal cards.
