Flower Shoppe




Today I made a goal to play with Flower Shoppe. I was having so much fun creating that I kept making flowers. And I have to need to thank Cricutblog.org and Michele Kovack for the inspiration! Once I figured out the system of flower cuts, I could not stop. I think friends will be getting a lot of flower cards from me soon!
Another shout out about a new paper line I found in my Noel Mignon - Bees Knees kit last month. Melody Ross -Soul Food Collection. This designer paper has the feel of fabric! Even my 17 year old son kept feeling it. :)

Road Trip from CHA Calling Card (luggage tag)

How exciting when you find the perfect die cut for the perfect theme! This is how I felt when I realized that there were luggage tags on one of my many favorite cartridges...Destinations. I cut out the tag using Vintage Damask at 3.0. The phrase "road trip" was embossed and cut from Pack Your Bags.

Road Trip Magnets

When Shannon asked we what I wanted to swap for this event, my first thought was magnets. I love collecting magnets from the places my family has visited or had been assigned while in the Air Force. And even though our kitchens have changed from our many moves, the magnets always seem to begin a conversation that starts off with "remember when we..." And yes, they are on my frig door.
I knew this new idea would also push everyone's creative buttons. And I am looking forward to what everyone has to done with their ideas and creative energy. I decided to make a magnet that reflected me. I love dragonflies and summer! And when I look at my magnet, it will remind me of summer when a lot of friends, familiar and new, came to Ohio to play.
Ingredients -
Imagine cartridge - Lori's Garden
Home Decor cartridge - dragonfly 3.0
Lilly pad cut from basic shapes from the Imagine
Glossy Accents and pop dots
