Get Well Fishes

My husband's job holds monthly challenges for their work sites and this month each person had to make a get well card for an ailing co-worker and of course I had to handle this one for him. I wanted to do something cheerful and whimsical so I decided to send "get well fishes" instead of 'wishes". I think I finally got my money's worth out of my Cricut for this card because almost everything was cut out on the Cricut. To made the card shaped like a fish bowl I used the Cricut craft room to weld the shapes and cut them out. I embossed the "water" using a cuttlebug folder and I added Martha Stewart glitter for the "sand". The clam has an actual pearl inside and the larger fishy has googly eyes. The fishes are the same image I just used the flip feature on the Cricut expression and made one larger than the other. All of the die cuts are from the Sponge Bob cartridge except for the fish bowl and the fishes, they are from the Sesame Street cartridge. I added a clear acetate die cut of the fish bowl as an overlay for a more glass-like effect ( I don't know if you can tell in the photo). Inside the card says "Well anybody could send get well wishes, hope you feel better soon!

SOC Magazine Review

The new issue of Scraps of Color Magazine has been released and is full of a lot of goodies. The founder, Tiare, included one of my comments in the reader's section, that was so cool. I really appreciate this magazine and the quality of the work and the articles. The August/September issue doesn't disappoint, trust me. I can't give away a lot of details because I want you to check it out for yourself, but just let me say that this issue includes more great digital download freebies, great articles on tools and techniques and some wonderful layouts for inspiration. One of my favorite parts of the magazine is the fact that tips are included throught the magazine. Not only do you find out what products are used on the layouts but there is information on how to use them yourself. Lastly I have to say it was way, way, way, cool for me to see this woman in the "spotlight" this month, she creates cards, layouts, mini albums and other cool altered art and I am so proud of her work (and the fact that i know her, lol), so what are you waiting on get your copy here!

Labor of love

I have been trying to take advantage of the three day weekend and work through some WIPS. I also took some time to work with the Cricut Craft room site (more on that in my next post) and I got the Martha Stewart circle cutter for 60% off at Michaels using AC Moores coupon so for me this has been a good crafting weekend so far.

This is my daughter as she graduated from 8th grade. I have many more pictures to scrap from that day so I decided not to journal a lot and focus on two of my favorite photos from that day.

These are some cell phone photos I jacked from my daughter last year, no special occasion just admiring her growth. I made three out of the four flowers with flower shoppe can you tell which one I didn't, lol.

And finally here is a layout of my baby niece at her first dance recital. I used the Lemon Flower stack which I just absolutely love. The colors are fantastic!
