Design Team Day!

Challenge:   Scrap your Vacation
July 23 - 29

And we're going on vacation!!! This week is all about Scrap Your Vacation! Well, I thought it would be really cool to actually have my post about vacation while I am on vacation! I am currently in the state of North Carolina visiting with family. It has been over a year since I have seen my dad or my precious cousin that I love as a sister! So, anyway this layout is of the last time I was able to visit a little over a year ago when my cousin's baby girl got married. I so love being with my family. I felt sooooo blessed to have been able to go to this wedding.

This is just 1 of the dozen layouts I did of this wedding to go in my scrapbook. Please forgive my terrible photo taking good camera is on the fritz so I am having to deal with this little point and shoot for a while. 

So, enjoy and don't forget to show us your vacation layouts or cards. Check here to go see all the inspiration from my Design Team sisters for this week.

Design Team Day!!

I whipped up this cute little card from an image in my stock of cut images I keep on hand to make quick cards! I used the Paper Smooches stamps "Chit Chat" for the sentiment and "Geo-Graphic" for the background. I also used some pink and white twine to tie around the card. Hope you enjoy!

So come on over to Cuttin and Stampin and see all the great ice-cream creations we have for you this week!

Challenge:   Independence Day
July 2 - July 8, 2013

 I decided to make a little home decor project for you today. 

A close up of one of the flower clusters

Straw wreath
Material Strips cut 3"x 18" 
Accent Essentials Cricut Cartridge
Pearl Spray Mist
Straight Pins
Bazzill 4th of July printed paper
Various red, white, and blue ribbon

Step 1: I wrapped the wreath with the printed material strips and pinned them onto the straw form. 

Step 2: Cut 4 different size/patterns of 6 petal flowers from Accent Essentials.

Step 3: Layer together and begin scrunching and folding to create the rumpled look of the flower. Layer another flat flower of similar or contrasting color in the middle and secure all with a brad.

Step 4: Make various size bows with ribbon and pin in place.

Step 5: Pin paper flowers to the wreath form.

Hope you enjoy! Can't wait to see what you come up with for Independence Day!!!
