Batty In Love by Paper Smooches

Hello....You know I already showed you a card I made with this same set-but by golly all the images are so cute I hope to make a card or project with all the images-so watch for a couple more!

I am using the fun stamp set Falling For You by Paper Smooches from Inspiration Emporium.

The box is a cut file from the Silhouette store, as well as the spiderweb! Have you seen the new Beta version of the Silhouette Store redesign? What do you think of it?  I am not one to like a lot of change, but I do like some changes and not so much for others. I loved being able to see at a glance if I already owned a cut file-so I hope they bring that back. What do you think about it all?

Have you seen all the great entrants in the Silhouette Challenge August Challenge? Don't miss out-you have a few days left!

I colored and cut out the little bats, adding a bow to one 'girl' bat and added them both onto the box with pop dots and a fun little heart included in the set as well. 

The sentiment was stamped on a tag cut from the Lori Whitlock Sweet Strawberry die set.

I am entering this cutie into the following challenges:

Craft Deebowz Challenge-use a homemade bow 9/1
Melonheadz Friends  Challenge-use a hand colored image 8/30
The Paper Shelter Challenge-Come Fly With Me  9/2
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge-Anything Goes 9/2

Paper Smooches Falling For You

Back to School Time!

Having two daughters that are school teachers, naturally our conversations have centered around classrooms,  new students and getting up early tomorrow for their first day! My goodness- they work so hard...just to get ready for that first day of school-and the rest of the year!  I decided to make a set of these appreciation cards because I have a lot of teachers to send them to. I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for their 200th Celebration..

For today's cards I used my new Paper Smooches stamp set named Falling For You that I got from Inspiration Emporium. (this set also includes fall images as well as Halloween, so it is very versatile) I used a sentiment from a retired Clear and Simple stamp sentiment set about teachers...a classic!  The paper is DCWV Grade School Stack with glitter and foil. Love that stuff!!!  I finished each one off a little differently and added a fun little charm from Inspiration Emporium as well.

 You can see these little charms that say Imagine and Inspire.

I stamped the apple on red dot paper and then restamped the white core part and cut it out and added it on top of the first apple.

I hope you have enjoyed these cards today!

Silhouette Challenges August -Anything Goes-Erin Condren Planner stickers!

It's time for our mid posting over at Silhouette Challenges.

Challenge# 28 "Anything Goes"

Begins: August 1

Ends: August 31

A blog dedicated to the Silhouette Cutting Machines.

  You MUST use a Silhouette somehow in your project!
Silhouette Challenges
My daughter Abby just got a new job teaching 2nd grade! In preparation for this new job, she wanted to start a new Erin Condren planner. She was running around buying stickers when I finally told her to STOP-we can make them! ...So she bought full sheets of Avery labels and we went to town. We bought these element files and after a few boo-boos-we managed to get it right...Element pieces work differently than cut files so we had to figure all that out. Since then...we have been regulars buying the One Buck Wednesday elements and digi papers from Snap and Click store. Oh no!!! Not another thing to be addicted to LOL!
I hope you have enjoyed my first "official" post as a new team member for Silhouette Challenges!

These are all cut files from the Silhouette Store  that I colored or added digi papers to and then grouped them together to make them print and cut.

Silhouette files and digi papers from the Lori Whitlock School Rules collection, Silhouette files made as print and cut. I opened up the fun digi papers and pulled them into each piece. Then I layered them  and grouped them for a print and cut. (You will probably have to right click on each piece and choose Bring to Front to get the correct layering sometimes)

Silhouette file made as a print and cut file-I added the text to make sure she is ready for her nail appointment!

Please pop over to  Silhouette Challenges and join the fun.

My posting days for 2015 will be the 22nd of each month, so please make sure to pop in and say Hello!

Where have I been??? Making wedding projects

I am still here...just coming off a very long cherry harvest and trying to recharge my batteries!!!

Although there is not much stamping going on...I am making fun projects for my nephew's wedding coming up this Saturday.  I got this jar print and cut from the Silhouette Store and added the text before cutting out like a gazillion of them for fans. It is HOT in my neck of the woods!

The canvas flowers were cut from a DCWV 6x6 Burlap Paper Stack, glued on misc buttons and small sisal rope for finishing touches. The fans are two sided with a personal message from the bride and groom on the other side.The handle is glued in the middle of two jar cut outs. The Mother of the Groom and I  made almost 100 of these. I have also etched a bunch of wedding presents like mugs, plates and jars. Busy...busy...busy.... Today I made a couple simple banners the bride wanted and tomorrow a few signs as well. 2 more days to go!!!!

I do want to share with you that I have joined the Silhouette Challenges Blog as a new team member for 2015!  How fun is that?

I am so excited as  you know almost every creation I make has a Silhouette cut element of some sort included! In Silhouette is cutting away some vinyl signs and signs for the little ring bearer as I type this!

Please take a few minutes to pop over and join with a Silhouette creation of your own-our challenge for August #28  is Anything Goes!

I should be back to my regular crafting soon!
