So today I finally made it into my craft room. I have been wanting to try the new bunny cut out I had downloaded. I was hoping to do more, but found that I need a new blade for my machine. So here is the two card I did get to do.
With this card I used the outline. Traced it onto this paper and cut it out myself leaving the ear at top attached so it flips open.
This year my daughter an I decided to make her v-day cards. I started the cards the other day using my new Hero Arts clear stamps. I love these! When my daughter saw my samples she told me I could continue making them by myself if I want. Was I just suckered in to make her cards? Thats okay I am having a lot of fun with this.
Below is a few pics of the card I made.
I am back! It has been a busy week for us at the Haines household. Dom and Caitlin had games and practice all week. Not to mention I had the ick at the beginning of the week. All is well now an we are on our last stretch of Basketball this week for Dom. Caitlin still has 2 weeks left. So to catch you up to what we have been doing………
Tye dying some t-shirts with my daughter. What fun!!! Caitlin received a tye dye kit for the holidays and we decided last wkend to try it. Fun, but messy.
The next pic. is of some stamps I picked up yesterday by Hero Arts to make Valentines day cards for Caitlins class. We are hoping to start them today. Can I say I just love the new Hero Arts clear stamps.
Yesterday we had a snow day her in Maine. So I took the opportunity to go into my scraproom and finish the holiday pictures. My daughter joined me and did a few pages of her own. She now has her own supplies since Christmas. I was so proud of her. She picked good pictures and chose her words carefully. I am so impressed with her work I had to share it with you. Remember Cailtin is only 9.
I hope you enjoy the pics.
The middle pic is my page of my daughter.
I really like my card this year. I decided to not use stamps and use my silhoutte. I am try to use it more so I get more comfortable with it. The tree is cut out and the rest I used a Fiskars border punch and random buttons I have collected. I decided to go with untraditional colors this year. OUt of the Box.
Well the cards are done, but the shopping is not. Saturday is going to be a all day marthon of getting everybody their gifts.
Wow! I took some pictures of my daughter Sat. in her holiday dress and I want to know when she went from kid to tween. I look at her an think of what I was doing at her age. It was not dressing like this or wanting an IPod. It was Barbies for me. Times have changed.
I also did some holdiay shopping this weekend. Still have lots to do. The holiday has snuck up on me. I did manage to get 6 cards done this weekend. I used my silohuette and Fiskars border punch. I really like how they came out. I willtry to get a pic up in the next couple of days.
