Ready for my close ups

  • not me, obviously. I just got home from the morning school run, the only thing on my face is some sunblock. I think you will faint if you see me now. Ha!
  • I need to thank you all for the sweet emails, text and messages since my last post. I'm okay, I hope. We're still at the wait and see stage. I really hope there will be no story to tell - health wise. I really hope it was just a scare. *fingers crossed*
  • And now, close ups for my layouts for Pretty Paper Studio. The blog hop is still on, scroll down and leave a comment in my previous post if you're interested! :)

  • Stitched sun rays + my beautiful baby girls. Everything from the kit, except for that little bit of twine. I love not using the frame transparency as a frame. YKWIM? lol.

  • I got several questions on how I get that butterfly. It's not hard, I promise. I cut a huge butterfly with my Silhouette *you can totally do this with your craft knife, I'm just lazy and am no good with craft knife and i didn't want a trip to the ER, really, I'm that clumsy*. Then I used the negative portion of the butterfly as a mask, taped it on that lovely teal cardstock with some washi *because I want to take it off later and washi is great for that*, and stamped the word love all over with teal ink before I misted it lightly with White Mister Huey. Let it dry, and take off the butterfly mask and that's it. Love the look btw, will be doing this again and again and again.
  • Follow Your Heart was cut from the branding strip at the bottom of the transparency sheet.

  • Yes, I stitched every little circle. Yes, it's tedious and lots of work. Yes, I love it because it calms me down. I traced the circles with The Crafters Workshop stencil by Julie Balzer.
  • Three layouts - all with that kraft tag by Maya Road. I have since gone out and bought myself three packs of the kraft tags for fear of running out. This is not something I do, really. I don't buy stuff in multiples because I believe better things will come along but this one is an exception! I love love love warmer kraft like the tags and also those JilliBean's folder!! Can't get enough of them.

The defects and flaws should be checked twice before purchasing. Cabinet rails should be smooth and the inner side of the draws should have sanded finish. The draws should not splinter or snag.

Sara said...

GOR-GE-OUS!! You are so inspiring my friend!!

(Yes I am playing catch up--so behind on all my blogs!!)
