I decided to play with the Lil Giraffe chipboard from Magistical Memories this week. I usually shy away from the animal shapes, but I am so glad I didn't for this card. I just love this little plaid giraffe. (The papers are by My Mind's Eye. Love them!) And I think the colors are fun for a baby card.
Next up are some new projects I did for Provo Craft. My mission was sophisticated and elegant. Not sure if I hit the mark, as I am used to doing cutesy kinda stuff, but I tried. ;)
For this first project, I dressed up a large scalloped chipboard candy box by Provo Craft. I cut out a large circle and a couple of hearts (George and Basic Shapes) and some daisies (Walk in My Garden) using my Cricut Expression machine. Added some buttons and some stitches, and voila! (The papers and letter stickers are by Basic Grey - Blush collection).
Next, I tried my hand at doing a layout. Not my strong suit, but it isn't too bad. I had this layout in mind when I took the pictures, so if they look a little staged, they are. ;) I don't have lots of shots of myself just laying around, so sometimes I have to force myself in front of the camera. For this, I used my Cricut machine to cut out lots of hearts (George and Basic shapes Can you tell this is my favorite heart shape?) and the word LOVE (Beyond Birthdays) and just slapped it all together. (The papers and a few of the die-cuts are by SEI - Jolie Chocolat collection.)
Lastly is a wedding card I made using my Cricut Expression machine to cut out the stretched flower flourish (Stretch Your Imagination). I cut it out a couple of times in green and once in pink and layered the pieces. (Paper is by Basic Grey - Perhaps collection.)
Well that's all I have for today. I will try to check back in soon. I know that Jenn will be putting up the March designs at Self-Addressed soon, so until then...
Thanks for stopping by!
