Just a Note

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It is my day to share a project over on the PPPR blog.  I am so excited to show you the project I created with one of Lisa's cute files!!

Yesterday, I needed some cards to send notes to school.  I went to my card box, and lo and behold, no basic note cards.  Off to my craft room I went, and a little while later, I had made 4 of these:


Aren't they pretty??  I LOVE these gorgeous daffodils and they were SO easy to put together!  The hardest part was finding the right yellows :)


The daffodils are from Lisa's Spring Garden Cutting Files.  There are some real beauties in this set.  Look at that gorgeous tulip and the humming bird???  Shut the front door!

The daffodil is lying on some beautiful Mats, cut using my CDD Fancy Frame Dies.  The sentiment is from CDD's Happy Thoughts Stamp Set.



Did you know that you can find MANY of Lisa's designs in the Silhouette Store??  You can find full sets, and individual cuts that you can't live without HERE.  The daffodil is file #58442, make sure you go pick it up!!

Be sure to pop by the PPPR blog every day for some cute inspiration from all my fellow Design Team Divas!

Bee Set

I love this cute little bee set.  I even fussy cut each of them out, and I think fussy cut is a bad word ;)  This is a little 3x3 set.

I hope you all play along with us!  I can't wait to see what you create!

Rainy Day Card Set

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It is my day to share a project over on the PPPR blog.  I am so excited to show you the project I created with Lisa's cute files!!

There is nothing I like better than cute faces on things - food, suns, inanimate objects - you name it, and I like it cute!  Today I picked some of my favorite cute weather files and put together a little card set:


Pretty cute, aren't they???  I will give you a closer look at each of these cuts.


Loving the rain boots!!  They are from Lisa's "Rain or Shine" cut files.  It is one of my all time favorite sets!  I used 3 cuts from that set in these cards.


The cuteness in this cloud is too much!!  I think his face is perfection!


The lamb is from Lisa's "Rainy Day Critters".  I think this was one of the first sets I bought, when I found PPPR.  I think each of them are ADORABLE!!  One of my favorite things about Lisa's files, is how easily they come together.  And this sheep took just minutes.


This sad little cloud is from the "Rain or Shine" files.  He looks so sad, I think he is just the cutest.  



Did you know that you can find MANY of Lisa's great files in the Silhouette Store?  Each of these cute cuts is available there.  You can find her HERE.  You can pick up a whole collection - or individual files, it's easy peasy!!

I am sure you're all wondering where all the cute sentiments came for my cards... well, Lisa took care of that too!  Last month, in Pretty Cute Stamps March release, I found 2 cute weather stamp sets that I NEEDED to add to my collection.  The sentiments on these cards are from the "Rain or Shine" stamp set, and you can pick yours up HERE.


AND if you buy it before April 10th, all of her stamps are 25% off!!!  I know there are a few sets that I have been eyeing that will be making there way to my house!



Be sure to pop by the PPPR blog every day for some cute inspiration from all my fellow Design Team Divas!

Thanks

Happy Friday everyone!  It's challenge day over at PDE Linky Parties.  Miss Janis, challenged us to create any crafty project.  I love me some creative freedom...   Here is what I created.  

This is the last of the puppy party posts.  I made a thank you card for Gabrielle to give her friends at school the Monday after the party, thanking them for their gifts.


These were very easy to create.  The paw is from Paper Pups, the Thanks is from Lyrical Letters, and voila!  

I hope you all play along with us!  I can't wait to see what you create!

Cheers

Happy Monday everyone!!  I am popping in to share a couple of cute tags.  A couple of weeks ago, I got some new stamps sets from Pretty Cute Stamps.  One of them was the cute "Happy Hour Faces".  

A friend of mine has a birthday today, so I decided to make her a tag.  I ended up making 2 of them, coloring is something I am not really good at, there is always a learning curve for me.  I learned a few things with these tags.  Here they are:


For tag number one, I used the super cute wine glass.  My friend is a wine lover, so this seemed an appropriate choice.  I colored her with my Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  She fit perfectly on CDD's Tag Essentials Die.  I just love how cute she is.


On to tag number two.  My friend LOVES to head south, where the drinks are fun and fruity, so I was torn between this and the wine stamp.  I love how cute he turned out!  I even blinged up the ice with a little stickle, to make it look frosty, but alas - the learning curve.  I stamped and colored the drink with my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol, before I stamped on the face.  I learned, that my ink took a lot longer to dry once it was stamped over gamsol, and ended up smearing the eyes with my finger.  ALSO, I learned that while my red marker colored over Gamsol well, the white pen did not.  I ended up stamping another face and fussy cutting the eyes.  Fussy cutting is a task I despise, so, lesson learned, no more coloring before stamping the face.  LOL!  Even though his eyes are blurry, and it bothers the perfectionist in me a LOT, I decided to take a picture and share him anyway.  He is too cute not to share ;)  This time, I used the "Just Tag Die" from My Creative Time.




A challenge or two for my tags:
Pretty Cute Stamps - anything but a card
Amusing Challenges - anything goes
2 Creative Chicks - anything goes
