Camping - Project Life Cards

I am having so much fun playing with Project Life these days.  Little by little, I am getting through the pictures I have printed of the kids.  All of these files were purchased from the Silhouette Store.  I used the print and cut feature.  The pattern paper used in the girl card is digi Echo Park, purchased from Jessica Sprague's website.  Let me know if you have any questions.  :-)

Boy and His Dog

This was my inspiration today.  Created in Silhouette Studio.

Thank you card using Digi Paper and Silhouette

Echo Park and Silhouette, does it get any better?

Digi Paper:  Echo Park Sweetday from Jessica Sprague's website
Silhouette File:  Artisan Shape Card and 5-Card Kit Elegant Envelope

I recently sold a few of my Cricut Carts to some local ladies.  I had a lot left over and I gifted them to a friend who was purchasing 4 carts from me.  She purchased her Cricut Expression within the last month or so.  She was only expecting to get 6 carts from me.  In appreciation, she sent me a gift card to Micheals.  How sweet is she???

I am sending her a note to thank her for her generosity.  Sometimes I give things away and don't even get an acknowledgment. :-(

All the printed paper is from the Echo Park Sweetday digital paper pack.  I purchased the pack from the Jessica Sprague website.  To make it easy to label, I added a layer of white and adjusted the transparency.  Then I added some rectangle boxes so I could type in our addressess.

Originally I had created another card, it was all digi using a lot of the patterns in this pack, but it just didn't look nice. 

Happy Scrapping!

Valentine treats for boys and girls!  The boys are getting Now 'n Laters and the girls are getting gumballs.  How cute are these gumballs?

Frog Valentine

Frog Valentine Bag Toppers
These cute little frogs can be found in the Silhouette Store.  I added "Hoppy Valentine's Day" to the heart he is holding.  The original file only had little black circles for the eyes.  I created my own eyes by making a white circle, then doing an internal offset to create the black pupil.  This makes the eyes easy to print and cut.   To create the mouth, I increased the line thickness in the original file so I could use the print and cut feature (again).  The bag topper was also purchased from the Silhouette Store - it had 2 owls on a branch but I didn't think the love birds were appropriate for my daughter to take to school.  I'm off to work on some girl Valentine's. 

Birdie Notebook

Front of Bird Notebook

Removable bird bookmark resting on transparency

Divider and back of bird bookmark

Here is a $1.00 notebook I purchased from Michaels.  I took all the pages out and cut the binding so I could make this a spiral notebook.  Using scrapbook paper, I covered the front and back covers.  Inside I added a transparency page for fun and a divider.  The yellow and white polka dot bird is a bookmark. 

Keep Calm and Carry Yarn Card

I made this card for my friend Ann, who gave me a gift card for Michaels for my birthday.  I had the flu at the time, then Christmas came, and New I am a little late in sending this thank you card. 

Ann crochets and knitts, so I thought this would be an appropriate card for her. 

I bought the phrase from the Silhouette Store.  The card template and the frame were also purchased from the Silhouette Store.  I offset the frame so I could add another layer to the card.  I used Martha Stewart card stock...I love her card stock, it is so thick.  I might have to go stock up on some more now that I have a gift card.  ;-)
