Patriotic Star

Hello all, I know I'm a couple days late for a 4th of July post, but it's still patriotic and it's still 4th of July weekend so I hope you enjoy this fun patriotic star.

Here's the finished star.  The base is a chipboard shaped star, I attached festive paper to it and added some fun embellishements.

You can see more details for this project on the ScraPerfect blog here.

Father's Day Cards!

Happy June everyone, can't believe this year is already almost half way over. And soon Father's Day will be here so I wanted to share with you a few cards I made using some fun laser cut tools to make some awesome and unique Father's Day Cards.

All these cards feature the mini laser cut wood tool set from Unique Laser Designs.  Aren't they fun!

On this card I used metal brads that look like screws, I've had them forever and finally had the perfect project to use them on.

I cut the tool belt from a piece of canvas and distressed it with some Tim Holtz distress ink.   I just winged it when I cut it, I didn't measure anything on this one.

And finally here's a close up of the tool box, this one is my favorite.  I searched for a pattern to make a tool box shaped card so I had to create my own from scratch.  I think it turned out pretty well.

A peak at the inside shows a little shelf I made for the inside that holds all the little tools.

Thanks for looking and Happy Father's Day!

You Are A Star Card

Hey Everyone, sorry for being missing in action for a bit but I'm coming back from a much needed blogging vacation. But I'm back and have some great new projects to share with you this month. My latest project is a simple card that is quick, easy and versatile.

To make this card I used two pieces of patterned paper, stickers and 5 small laser cut stars.  I left the stars unfinished for this first take, I think they are nice just the way they are. And if you swap out the color of the paper for a blue or green, you'd have a nice simple masculine card.

Or you could add a little bling to the stars by adding stickles or glitter to them to make them little more feminine.  Either way it's a great simple card that could be used for a variety of occasions.

Love of my Life LO and Challenge

May already? This year is just flying by. But a new month means there is a new challenge up over on the Black With 2 blog.  For me this months challenge was a bit more difficult than others because it is monochromatic.

Here's the inspiration board

And here's my take on the challenge

I chose a black and white photo from my wedding.  The half circle is a piece of acrylic that I layered with a laser cut leaf that I covered with black ink.  

Be sure to check out the Black With 2 blog this month as they are announcing the new design team and there will be a lot of extra inspiration for this months challenge.

Cherry Blossoms

I love Cherry Blossoms, don't you? I've yet to see them down by our State Capitol, but I have seen some gorgeous photos taken when they are in bloom. You have to be quick though before they are gone. 

 I recently came across these awesome laser cut cherry blossoms from Unique Laser Designs and came up with a way to enjoy these blossoms all the time. 

The best part about these is I can color the blossoms any way I want.  You could even go out a on limb and try an unconventional color for cherry blossoms.  For these I used a mix of gelatos to get the hue I desired.  I colored the branches and leaves with Spectrum Noir markers and used stickles for the flower centers.  I'll be entering this into the April challenge over on the Unique Laser Designs blog, you can check it out and enter one of your own creations for a chance to win.  Check out the details here, there's still time to enter, but hurry May is quickly approaching.
