Whale Baby Card

Pottery Barn Lamp - Inspiration

I made this for my sorority sister. She is having a baby boy within the next 2 weeks. I was able to find whale bath toys to coordinate with this card (and with the nursery bedding). This card was inspired by the coordinating Pottery Barn Lamp.

I used my SIL SD to create this card. I also use my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing folder to emboss the whale (which everyone loved!). I rounded the corner edges with my Round It All and inked the edges using my SU! ink. The font is from my computer and a brad eye was the last touch.

Vacation T-Shirts

Now that my husband has told everyone he works with our vacation location...I can post this. Have you ever noticed, if you tell someone you are going to the beach, they have to know where...why is that??? Anyway...

I made these shirts for my kids. You have seen the whale shirt, but without the words. Once we decided what beach we were going to this year, I added it to my son's shirt. The orange shirt is for my daughter and she will be so surprised when she wakes in the morning. She is my biggest fan, so I know she will love it!!! Some of the vinyl used is Silhouette and some is generic...I bought it on Ebay and I really like it! It works great!

Going to have some fun in the sun!!! Later dudes!!! :-)

Why does Blogger

Why does Blogger take me in a loop when I try to post comments to other people's blogs? Every time I click to post a comment, it takes me to the log in screen. When I put my password in, it takes me to the screen where I type in the magic word, and when I submit, it takes me back to log in, so I log in again, and I get a new magic keeps doing this over and over until I just give up. Any way to avoid this?

Shirt - Rhinestone Ballet Shoes

(Click picture to enlarge)

I decorated this shirt using a Silhouette rhinestone template. I still have not purchased the coordinating paper to use with these rhinestones so I had to improvise. It took a really long time to get all the stones in place. I was going to also put the word "Dance" under the shoes but I am going to wait until I purchases the sticky paper - it will be much easier. My daughter starts her first year of ballet in August and she is soooooo excited. I am too bc she has never wanted to play sports or take any kind of lessons. Thanks Angelina Ballerina, you inspired my little girl to dance!!!

(PS - I ironed the shirt, not shirt why it is so wrinkled!)

New Wall Art for Master Bedroom

I made these for my master bedroom. I bought the files from Silhouette, and cut them out twice. I used the second cut to fill in and make the image bigger. I can hardly wait to get all of these hung above my dresser. I will update when I get a pic of all three together.

4th of July Tee

I made this shirt for my daughter. I am sure it will be cuter on her than it is hanging on the clothes hanger. She was excited when she found out I was making it. I was going to put a bow on each sleeve but she only wanted one bow. She fell asleep before I it will be a surprise for her tomorrow. My son wants to know what he gets???

The firework was a template I bought from Silhouette...I left off the bottom part of it and I added more stones to make the firework bigger. Let's see how long these stones stay on her shirt. :-)
