I even did a tutorial! Wow I am feeling industrious! lol! Go over to the My Digital Art Studio Blog to see how I created this sweet calendar set.
Thanks for looking!
Okay yes I know school actually started a month ago But I am ‘finally’ (Or should I say Hopefully?) getting back on track. It is so funny when Chrismari was at home I had so much to do and so little time…now with her out of the house all morning I find I am sometimes walking around the house wondering what I should do? lol! I hope it is not some kind of empty nest syndrome or something. At least my house and laundry is up to date although I have been slacking in the creating department. Sigh I hate it when I get these slumps, I do think it is directly corellated with my mood plus I have this huge headache that just is not going away. Drinking a hot cup of tea and going to lie down for a few minutes while Christian is still napping…I think it is a good idea!
I am so proud of my little girl, she work so hard at school and is already reading up a storm at home. She cannot wait to get home and read her books for homework!
I made her some flash cards to practice her sight words. I laminated them in the hope that someday I might be able to use them for Christian! lol!

Each set includes a score card so we can make a little game of it. I chose not to put it onto a ring so we can keep it random and we can make a pile of words she knows and those she does not then she can count the ones she got right (yay number practice!) and review the ones she didn’t. I hope this will help her somewhat with the challenges she faces at school but she keeps on surprising me, she is so bright and the sweetest child!
In other news…a little birdie told me that my Brother is engaged!!! I am so excited for him, now I also have a very good reason to visit home you know I cannot miss a wedding!
And if you have not yet noticed, I entered the DSA Established Designer competition and I made 1st place in this weeks entry!!! OMG This is so exciting for me! Thank you to each and every fan/friend’s support I seriously appreciate it so much especially after I nearly gave up last week…I was just feeling so blue (Man I have to get out of this bad mood!)
I will chat again later but I have to go catch some zzzz’s I have a busy week between all the Mommy & Me Classes, Ballet and OT appointments…sigh feel for me please!
I was so inspired last week and I created this gorgeous little project for my daughter’s room. I used my Summer Days Grab Bags (Noon Picnic and the Summer Days Shapes Cutting Files) and my new Banners Set 1 to create these adorable banners.
I layered the 2 different shapes one slightly larger than the other with some pop dots. I also made some medallions with my border punches. Lastly I used Making Memories Glitter Letters to spell out her name. I made some flowers with my Flower Templates and added some gems and lots of clear glitter!
This is sooo darling but I do think next time I will rather use my hot glue gun for all the embellishments! Hope you like it!
I am so excited to share this project with you today! I created a mini-album for the February 2010 Digital Artist Magazine using Roben-Marie & Audrey’s collab Considering Ruby.
I printed out extras with the idea of making a 9 piece grid with the 3×3 inch squares…which until now has been sitting around in my craft room gathering dust.
While doing some shadow box art pieces I bought a 12×12 Canvas to see if it will work as a display and it did not…aaand then it all came together into this beautiful art project proudly displayed in the dining room…
So what do you think?
It was just so easy to make, I mounted the 3×3 squares onto cardboard…added excerpts from the E. E. Cummings Poem ‘I carry your heart in mine’ and hot glued everything in a grid onto a blank 12×12 canvas.
I just love it! It is so simple but beautiful!
Thanks so much for looking!
It is almost that time of year when one should start planning for Christmas gifts. I created these adorable Gift Baskets that are just the perfect size to hold my personal favorite homemade cookies! Yummy! Plus they just look divine as they are…imagine a row of them on your window sill…oh joy!
Hope you enjoy these pretty things…now to find the time to go and make some cookies to put inside! I think they might just be perfect for Teacher’s Gifts this year!
I am so excited about this beautiful project! I created these amazing Lace Diecuts for my Cutting Files August Grab Bag and they just spoke to my creative heart! I just had to do something with it. So I printed some papers from my other Summer Days Grab Bag…dont you just LOVE Hybrid? I also love the fact that the 2 coordinate so well together! And I made this insert for a Shadow Box. I am still hunting for the perfect frame.
I also made one for my special friend Michelle…I hope she loves it!
If you want to see how I created these pages please have a look at this Tutorial I wrote on the Cutting Files Blog.
Have a look at some more pictures:
Enjoy and I hope I have inspired you to make your own!
I had the privilege to work with Kelleigh Ratzlaff’s newest venture of Cutting files for Digital Die-Cutters. She already is the Template Queen and now she offers her amazing templates as Cutter Files for most mainstream digital die-cutters. Now I think that is just great since can you just imagine how easy this makes life being able to print out and cut her beautiful templates which is just prefect for gifts? Want to Grab her August Grab Bag? You can get it HERE.
I made a pillow box and 2 cards with an envelope…
I used Echo Park’s new Walk in the Park line and oh boy it is prrretty! I just love how cute and bright the patterns are. I think it all came out real cute! Thanks for looking!
I have been eyeing this kit by Quirky Twerp for a very long time…Gardenologie. It is soft and feminine with a shabby feel to it. I decided to do a few challenges and this kit was just perfect for it!
My first Card is for the Clean and Simple challenge (CAS76) at Splitcoaststampers.
I pretty much stayed with the sketch but I think it really is such a sweet card.
Next up is my card for the Hybrid Chick Caravan.
I just love the tags included in the kit and can see many uses for it!
Thanks for stopping by!
I love my Cricut and all of the Creative Possibilities! I used Red River’s Double Sided Polar Matte to create these gorgeous cards and envelopes. The Envelope Templates are from my new venture The Cutting Files Rectangular Envelopes. I used the papers and elements from the Endless Summer Collab by the TDC Designers…Drool with me because those papers are gorgeous!
I have not yet had a chance to finish them all but it was such a fun class! Jessica Sprague had a free Computer Tricks for Cards class and these are some of the cards I made:
