Thank you SEW much

Hi, crafters!
You know I love creating cute things, but today I'm trying my hand at a more "grown-up" look.  You may call it Vintage. It's a lot different from what I'm used to, but I think it turned out okay.

Cardz TV Stamps "Sew Much Fun"

Tim Holtz Walnut Stain

Foam Squares for image dimension

Button, Thread, Rhinestone from stash

New Home CAS card (and LEGOS!)

Hi, Crafters!
Today I am attempting (as I do on occasion) 
to create a CAS (clean and simple) card.

CAS definition:
One main image / focal point
Lots of white space
Minimal embellishments

  • Silhouette ID# 60552
  • Mark's Finest Stamps "Tweet That"
  • Ribbon & Button from Walmart
  • Thread from American Crafts
  • Papers from Bazzill

Our niece is purchasing her first home this summer.
How exciting! We are going to miss her House Warming party,
but will mail her out this card with a Gift Card to Lowe's.
Everyone needs a gift card to Lowe's.

I finished my Lego building, the Cinema Palace!
Got up a little after 4am on Thursday morning, and started the building the roof  for it around 6am. A few hours later I added it to the other 2 floors I had already completed a while back and voila! 'Tis done.
I love these Lego buildings.

Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy the rest of your day.

SOUS: Food or Beverage

A new Die Cut challenge starts today 
over at Stuck On U Sketches! 
I hope you'll join us for this die cut challenge. 
Create any type of project 
you would like using our theme, 
Food or Beverage.

You can link up your project HERE

I chose to use this cute little Ice Cream Cart
3D project from the Silhouette Online Store.

  • I followed the assembly instructions (with lots of photos) HERE
  • All solid papers are Bazzill textured cardstock
  • Everything adhered together with liquid glue
  • The eye was colored in with a black pen
I'm thinking about maybe swapping out the
ice cream cone on the side with a peanut
or piece of popcorn for other
projects using this file.
How cute would that be?

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I'm up to.
