Thank you

I have been enjoying my new portrait silouette. It is a perfect companion to all my stamping supplies.
I made this cute thank you card using this image cut from the silouette and then the cup was stamped with the haunted background from amuse studio. Add a sentiment and you have a great card!

Here are some more cups and hearts I cut out. It's fun to adjust the size of your image and then fill and cut an entire page in just minutes.

Thank you

It's snowing this morning so this card seems appropriate...though I don't know if I want to say thank you for the snow 😉.  We made this beauty at Sylvia's class. I love using Kraft and sugar card stock together and a little color accent makes the card pop!

Love is shakin'

We made this awesome shaker card at Sylvia's yesterday! We used the fuse tool to seal the edge of the clear pocket. I love the scallop heart duo dies from the January collection...a must for every stamper! Stamp sets used are also from the January collection...from the heart and all you need is love. What a fun card to send to the one you love! Thanks Sylvia!

New Toy

Here is my new toy this year! I have been wanting a portrait silouette machine for a while now and I finally treated myself (had some Christmas cash and a good sale after Christmas). I am still learning but it is so much fun and so easy to cut out images and lettering. It amazes me how crisp of a cut you get from this little cutting machine. 

Here are a few of the first things I created.

Made this for Emily to hang in her new apartment.

Simple and cute treat boxes.

Wrapping up

My boss made me this cute card using the festive girl stamp set from amuse studio. She also had a basket of beautiful scarves to wrap me in warmth to go with it. 

I was one of the lucky ones to receive a handmade card from my friend Karen as well this year. I love how she took a simple tree stamp and covered it with tiny jewels to make it look like lights. Thank you for making my Christmas bright!
