Flutter By Wednesday #156, Clean and Simple

Hard challenge for me today! Clean and simple! HARD! Hopefully, I got close enough! Anyhow, hope you all will play along with us this week at Flutter By Wednesday! Be sure to make it clean and simple, and add your butterfly, fairy or angel to your card! As you can see in my photo, I had a hard time getting everything straight. My little fairy isn't on there even, and I took an awful photo! If I wasn't busy as a bee, I'd retake the photo! As it is, I'm behind running around like a crazy fool lately, so the off kilter photo will have to do!

Supplies: SU pattern paper, cardstock, copics, nesties, stickles.

Flutter By Wednesday #155, Open and Carly Sketch

Sweet Carly has given us another wonderful sketch to work with today at Flutter By Wednesday. I love sketches and Carly from Sketches By Carly does a great job creating them! You can use the sketch for the design teams challenge, or just play along by including a butterfly, angel or fairy on your card!

I used an image that was sent to me by Debbie. I haven't been able to post cards using them Tuesday and Thursday lately, because I've been so busy with baseball, and subbing at the school. But I am using images! The paper is Wild Raspberry by K and Co. I used PTI cardstocks. The sentiment is from TAC.

Thanks for stopping by! Can't wait to see what fluttering cards you make this week! Be sure to link your creation back on the Flutter By Wednesday blog.

Other supplies: nesties, stickles, EK punch, copics, Versamagic ink pad.

Cricut Wedding Projects.

I was working on a big project for my niece's wedding. She was married last weekend, the Sat. before mother's day. She was a stunning bride!

I helped her make some of the wedding decorations with my cricut. I showed off her lollipops in this post. Wanted to show off a few other things I helped with, that used the cricut and vinyl.

She needed directional signs, so she sent me the dimension of the signs, and I designed them in Sure Cuts A Lot and cut them out for her. She was married at GA Tech's Alumni hall, which is downtown GA. She was married doors, so the parking, reception and ceremony in the same area, but required walking. The signs where to help guest figure out where to head. (Naturally, I missed the signs when it came to parking until after I passed it!) I was able to mail them to her still on the backing of the vinyl, and she applied them to the sign boards after she painted them.

When she was visiting with me in Jan, when we were making the lollipops, we cut out the monograms for her table center pieces. We used two different fonts, the S was tilted, as the original slanted too much to the E. All she had to do was apply the vinyl to the glass when she had time back at her home. She had about 15 tables set up, and they were filled with pretty cloth flowers, and moss. The little gems were a nice pretty touch too. Very soft and subtle colors. Her wedding colors were gold and black. Extremely elegant, and she did a wonderful job with her vision and applying it. I was proud I was able to help her in the process.

I just wanted to show folks ideas for different things the cricut can do, outside of scrapbooking and cards. I'm so glad to be able to use tools I have to help family and friends with decorating and creating things that are 'theirs'.

Thanks for stopping by!

Flutter By Wednesday #154, Anything BUT a card.

Today's a fun challenge at Flutter By Wednesday. It's Anything BUT a card! Fun, right?! I used the challenge to make something for Trey's teacher for Teacher Appreciation Week. (I made Gabi's teacher one too, but forget to photograph it!) We had something planned for Trey's teacher daily, and this day we were to bring school supplies. I decided to make some matching bags with my Mariposa pack from DCWV. I cut them out with the cricut using Tags, Bags and More. The bookmark name is designed with the cricut as well, but the bookmark is cut from my nesties. Nothing nicer than a personalized gift, right?! I used a butterfly set from TAC, that was just dying to get used. Such a pretty set that has been neglected in my stash! Because the paper was a little busier with it's pattern and glitter, I didn't embellish like crazy. I topped my plainer patterned bag with a prima.

I hope you play along! Remember to include a butterfly, fairy or angel on your card! Can't wait to see what projects you all come up with! Don't forget to link up your creation at Flutter By Wednesday.

Other supplies: copics, stickles, SU ink, scrappers floss, primas,
