Butterfly Banner

Hello my friends!

I wanted to share with you this beautiful home decor piece, the Clear Scraps Acrylic Butterfly banner. I used Clear Scraps fabulous mascils on this banner as well... and have a how to up on the Clear Scraps blog showing you how to work with the acrylic & the Mascils.

I didn't have a theme in mind when I created this, but I did want something bright and sunshiney for my sunroom... this banner fit the bill!

I just love it!
Thanks for popping in with me.

Family Album

Good morning friends!
I have the cutest little family album to share with you today.. you may have seen a peek of it on my blog post yesterday - or on Creating Made Easy's blog. I've been sharing what I've created with the July kit.

This album is so cool, the letters F, M, L, and back piece behind the Y are all acrylic. Totally see through once you peel off the protective cover. I took all the acrylic pieces and edged them with Silver Pearl pen from Viva Decor.

While that was drying (about an hour) I took the chipboard letters A, I, Y and covered the front and backside with the Bella Blvd All American collection.

I left the pages blank so I could either give it as a gift, or adhere our photos in there later.
I just noticed looking at the picture above a little closer, that inside the word Family is ILY (i love you.)
On the backside of the I, I adhered this journal card, but only placed glue on the right side so I could tuck a photograph underneath from the left.
I love how you can see through those acrylic letters.. Clear Scraps products are truly the best!

That's it.. one of these albums can be put together pretty quickly and they look fabulous once complete. Go check out more work on the Creating Made Easy blog by Clear Scraps.

and I just have to share with you.. Clear Scraps is holding a Design Team Call!!  You must go check it out and throw your hat in the ring. This is such a wonderful team to work for. Susan and Jim are the heart and soul behind Clear Scraps and I love them to bits!!

See you soon with two more projects from the July CME kit!

USA Banner and Family Album

Good morning blogland!
I've not seen much of you lately, but if you're still out there, I wanted to share with you these two items I created with the July kit from Creating Made Easy kit club.

This kit is loaded with beautiful items from Clear Scraps with the perfect amount of embellishments to suss up your creations.

I'm showing you how I used the scallop chipboard banner and the mixed acrylic/chipboard Family album.
I started out by covering the chipboard pieces with the gorgeous Patriotic paper from Bella Blvd, the All American collection.
I then used my Cameo Silhouette to cut out the 3d Stars and letters using the same paper collection from the kit. I assembled them using Beacons 3-in-1 glue, and adhered the stars to the banner using Zots.
After I adhered all the letters, I then dressed them up with embellishments from the kit.
Cute, right?
Now all my children want their names in 3D letters. ;-)

I have this banner hanging in my entryway yet, I love the look.
If you happen to have a Silhouette, the files I used are in the Silhouette store, and here are the ID #'s of the ones I used.

Star - #44763
U - #29538
S - #29540
A - #29558

I also have this family album to share with you tomorrow... but if you'd like to see the rest of the pages now, head on over to Creating Made Easy's blog to see it now. You can also see the other gorgeous work by the CME Design Team.

July sketch fun!

Happy day friends.. it's July 1st, and what could be better than checking out the new July sketch from Some Odd Girl?

We came close to 50 participants last month, and we reallly want to get there.. I hope one or many of my crafty friends join in on the fun!

Here's my take on this sketch using Cheerleader Kaylee
My birthday is in two days, so I just had to create a Patriotic card using Kaylee.
I printed her out on Bazzill cardstock and colored her with my copic markers.

Go see what the other awesome Oddies created and how YOU can join in on this months sketch challenge!!
