Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon Guest Designer - SPRING!

Hi Crafters! I'm so excited for today! I'm a Guest Designer for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon. FUN!!!   I couldn't resist and made 2 Spring projects for my post.  I also didn't add any sentiment to my projects so I can use them for Birthdays, Thank Yous, Get Wells, or Just Because occasions.

The first project I made is this wonderful Spring Tree. I bought this tree, actually called Autumn Tree, you can find the file HERE.  I fell in LOVE with this tree.  I instantly purchased it when I saw it.  I had no clue how it layers but thought it would be fun.  I also LOVE digital designer paper.  PPPR has a fabulous Spring Designer Paper line called Spring Fling, you can find the designer paper HERE.  Combine the two and you get this Wonderful Spring tree!

So for layering, it layers SOOOO easily.  Each layer seriously just lays on top of one another.  Here is a side view so you can see the depth and layers of this tree:

Another side view:

For my second project I used the same Spring Fling Digital Designer paper and I also used this adorable female Robot from the Robot Group, you can find the file HERE.  The cloud paper in the background is also from the Spring Fling Designer paper.  It is so versatile.  It's a definite must have in my opinion.  Here is my project:

I hand cut the green cardstock for my "grass/hill" then used a Versamarker to outline and make the dots on it.  

In the middle of the dress was originally a heart but since I wanted a more Spring design I changed it out w/ a freebie Silhouette flower. 

Thanks for stopping by!  I want to give a Special THANK YOU to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon for allowing me to be a guest designer on their blog.  I had so much fun.  THANKS!!!  Be sure to go to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon Blog to see other projects and make sure you go to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon Store to check out their amazing cuts & designer papers.  :)

Green Apple Thank You!

Hi Crafters & Bakers! Today Georganne w/ LilaLoa and I are doing our cookie card challenge. It's when I'm lucky enough to be given permission to "steal", I mean be inspired by one of her cookie creations.  The cookies I chose to be inspired by are these classy apple green damask apple cookies.  You can see her blog post on these cookies HERE

Seriously how elegant are those?  I love them!  And that apple green is just perfect.  Here is my card inspiration from them.

The color looks more apple green in person.  I swear.  lol  :)  The design on the apple came from Digital Scrapbook.  You can find this design HERE.  Basically choose your color, choose your design, save it to your desktop then drag it into your Silhouette cut and it fills the cut w/ the design.  You can enlarge the design, make it smaller, pan it, etc. in the advanced settings.  FREE Designer Paper!  :)

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to head on over to Georganne's blog to see what she made of mine.  :)

Signing a Cast Card

I made this card quite a bit ago but realized I never shared. One of my nieces was injured playing a sport and she lives in Arizona. So I made this cast card and had her grandparents, aunts & uncles and cousins that live in Utah sign it. Thought it was a good idea to show our support to her from far away.  :)

This cut came from the Cricut Dr. Checkup cartridge.  The cut is originally of a girl in a hospital bed w/ her leg in a cast.  I just enlarged it a TON so it just showed the leg then had everyone sign the cast.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank a Professional Day!

Thanks a Professional day! OK, I don't really know if that is a thing or not but I have 2 professionals I wanted to thank so I made them each a card.

First off is for the office assistant at my surgeons office.  We have been battling it out w/ my insurance now for a month.   When I talk with her I can hear her frustration w/ the situation w/ the insurance but she has always been professional with me and always goes a little farther w/ customer service.  So I made her this funny card to hopefully bring a smile to her face:

I found the image online then added a band-aid to the image.  Print & Cut w/ my Silhouette (LOVE this feature) and attached it to a card.  I also created the banner tag & sentiment.  :)  So cute and So funny!  That face on the kid is just darling.  lol  :)

This next one is for my tax accountant.  He has been battling the IRS for me for over a year now and we just found out that we won our case and I owe $0.  Woo Hoo!!!  So I just wanted to send him a simple Thank You card. 

The book, calculator, and pen came from the Miss Kate Cuttables 'First Day of 7th Grade' SVG Cuts.  You can find the collection HERE.  I bought this set mainly for the calculator and it was a bonus that the pen & book were in the collection too!  :)

An Elegant Happy Birthday

Hi Crafters! I found this cute Tri-fold Balloon card in the Silhouette store (HERE) and I just loved it. It's the perfect birthday card for someone special. I made this a bit ago so unfortunately I don't have all the details but basically I just made sure that the center of the card would fit in a 5.5x5.5 envelope and sized it accordingly. Have a great day!

W/ a pencil I drew around the balloons so I knew where to write my message.  After I wrote the message I erased the pencil line.

 Thanks for stopping by!
