Homework

Hello Family, Friends, Fellow Crafters, and Followers,

I'd love to tell you that I had a crafty weekend but instead, I was doing homework.  You would think it was my assignment since I was full of idea once it was explained to me.  But, it was for my daughter.  She and I put our heads together and came up with what you see below.  Her assignment was to create a poster based on a poem she found.  Instead of looking for a poem, she wrote her own about her love for drama.  Not "bad" drama, but the "Art" of Drama.  That's her major at school.

The Theatre design was svg file found at the Silhouette Store.

Weekend Crop Wind Down

Hello Family, Friends, Fellow Crafters, & Followers,

I am on the final few hours of a 4 day weekend crop.  I am so proud of what I accomplished.  My initial plan was to fill in the holes of the kids' school albums.  I got most of it done, with the exception of 3 2pg layouts. That's only because I didn't have the right paper.  Yep, that's my story.  Here are some of the pages:




2 weeks ago as I was cutting coupons, I realized what a headache to find certain coupons because I had to lump so many categories together.  Then the light bulb came on.  I decided to make my own in the shape of an apron.  I am so proud since this is the first time I did a project for myself, during a crop.  Here are a few pages:



 
Lastly, I always set aside time to make cards and I am excited about these:

Getting a little crafty & organized...

Hello Family, Friends, Followers & Fellow Crafters!!!

Fall is here although last week it felt like summer.  No complaints here though.  I've been in a crafty mood lately and in two weeks I get to enjoy a weekend full of crafting.  It's way too early to pack, but I'm making progress.  I've ordered pictures, my Cutterpillar has arrived, and last night, I organized and purged my scraps.  My goal is to finish both kids school albums.  I think that may be a total of 14 LOs.  Phew, that is quite ambitious but if I get through 1/2, I'll be ok.

Here are a few things I worked on last week.  Sorry for the bad pics.  On my new laptop and photoshop is on the old one.

Birthday cards for my 2 nephews.  They had a skate themed party and are both into music.

I can't get enough vinyl!! My friend Pam wanted this shirt to wear to school to celebrate her grand's birthday.

Oh... tonight I created my first card template with my Silhouette Cameo.  It's for a Vertical Step Card.  I'm very proud of myself.  Hopefully, I'll be back in a few days to share the finished project.
 
Thanks for stopping by.
