Nuts & Bolts.....

Hello and Happy Monday Morning Everyone! I hope your weekend
was wonderful! I had a really nice simple weekend with my family.
My son Juston was away for the week and he arrived home Sunday
just in time for Father's Day which was really nice! I also managed to
get ALL 6 double page layouts completed and the Front page for the book
I'm making for my Customer! I even started another double page layout!
So I'm pretty excited how this book will turn out! :o)
Since yesterday was Father's Day I thought I would show you
the card I made for my Hubby and for his Dad.

I design this in my Silhouette! (No Surprise.... I Know!)
I made a 4 x 5 1/4 shape & filled it in with the "TOOLS"  Digi Paper
Made a 4 x 2 shape and filled it in with "DAD" Digi Paper
(Printed them out then let my machine cut out the shapes)
Cut a 3 x 4 1/4 Silver CS and Embossed it with a Cuttlebug Folder
Cut out a border in green then inked it up
Cut out 2 tools in grey then inked them
added some "screw" Brads from Oriental Trading
Wrote on a tag "Happy Father's Day" and tied it with some baker's twine
It looks really cool in person or so my Hubby had said! LOL
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!

Sooo Sweet....

Good Morning and Happy Thursday to you all! The weekend is
almost here YAY!!!! Oh... What? Your surprised by my post yet again?
I know right? Twice in one week? What's wrong with me???
Technically, there are LOTS of things WRONG with me! LOL
But we really don't have time for that! :o) Soooo I'll just
post a simply card for ya! How does that sound? Good! OK...
This is a very quick and simple card....
My son Juston needs about 30 Thank You cards
to give out to all the friends and family that
sent him Graduation wishes... and... well
that's a lot of cards...
So I used a Card Shape I purchased from the Silhouette store...
I added Bo Bunny CS and inked it
Some Baker's Twine,
some green buttons I got from my store....
 I typed out "You're so Sweet" in a banner shape
I got from the Silhouette Store and let it print & cut...
And there you go....
This is what the inside looks like....
I have plenty of room for him to personalize
each and every card! That's the
least he can do since I made all of them! LOL

I'm putting this into the Challenge over at the
Silhouette America Blog - Make a project using a Font
Thanks for stopping by!
Have an awesome Weekend!

Laundry day.....

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you all had
a fabulous weekend! I spent mine working on some
Layouts for a customer of mine. She asked me to make
her a baby book for her new baby girl.... I think I've told you
about this before.... Well.... I've been very busy as you well know...
So I finally got some time this weekend to sit down and get some
of those Layouts cut.... I have an "All Night Crop" this coming Friday
and I like to be prepared when I go to it... So I got 6 double page
layouts cut out and ready to take with me on Friday where I'll put
them together! My goal is to make 20 double page layouts for
my Customer.... So, I figure it will take me a little time to get it
all completed. As long as it doesn't take me til the little one turns 18!
Then It'll be all good! LOL Here's a baby card I made
for a friend of mine.... She's due any day now! :o)
I created this card over a month ago, knowing about her
baby shower for that long! :o) I used my Favorite
machine the Cameo!
The Card design is from the Silhouette Store!
Card stock, Ink, Buttons - Stampin' Up
Digital Designer Paper - Samantha Walker
Red Bakers Twine
Green Gem - Bazzill
Glitter Flower & Firefly brads - Oriental trading
I used the Print & Cut feature from the Silhouette to
make this card.... :o)
Well.... That's all I have for now.... Thanks for stopping by!
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!
