You're Turtley Awesome, Owl Always Love & Your a Purr-fect Friend Valentine Cards

Good morning...

Yes..still sharing valentine projects. I was very late getting them done (everyone had them by Valentines). So they are late in posting. 
I promise this is the last Valentine projects this year.

I made this card for Corbin's teacher. 

I think the turtle is adorable. I used a wobble to attached to the card. The white heart I added the sketch lines using one of the tools in the Silhouette software.

I really love the sentiment on the inside, it was printed on the heart before I cut it out.

Hope you enjoy.

The second card I made for Barbi. Printed the card stock front and back for the card. Printed the sentiment on the card front prior to cutting out.  The owl was a layer cut. However, I wanted to do a print n cut, so I colors all the images in Silhouette and merged. Cut out 3 non colored merged image and layered together where it could be popped up on the card using dimensional tape. Same process for the balloon heart.

Using one of the tool in the Silhouette software I added the half dots around the heart and added the sentiment prior to cutting out. I love how it turned out what say you?

PDE Linky Challenge & 2 Creative Chicks Challenge: Strawberry Shortcake & Monster Treat Boxes For Corbin's Class


Happy Tuesday All!
It's time for this week challenge over at PDE Linky Party
(Anything But a Card)
and
2 Creative Chicks
(Anything Goes) No Cards

This is my last posting for PDE. I sure have had a blast being on the DT. Janis and all the other ladies are super talented and very nice. They will all be missed.

I know Valentines has passed and Corbin has already handed these out to his classmates. I did not have any other projects in the works that would fit the challenge and be finished by the date my project was due. So I held posting these until now.

I normally make the same bag or box for the entire class. This time I decided to make different ones for the boys and girls. I LOVE how they turned out. I love Strawberry Shortcake and I think most little girls do too. I'm sure most little boys love monsters. I did not make the scary... they are cute.

Printed the card stock for each box on one side prior to cutting the box out. The Strawberry Shortcake was a print and cut, so was her little dog. 

The monster was a free image I found on Google images. I added some red dots with a glitter pen and the heart in his hand.

The glossy accents really make these cuties shine.

Hope you enjoy.

Silhouette Challenges Ch# 21 "3D Item for your Craft Room"

Good Morning!

It's time for another challenge over at Silhouette Challenges.
This month is create a (3D Item for your Craft Room).

I needed a way to keep my embroidery machine and sewing machine bobbins separated. I saw this in the Silhouette store and I think they work will fine. I can not find my bobbins at this time as I packed it all up last week while we set up the new sewing island. However, when I do find them I can keep one located at my desk where my embroidery machine is and the other on the sewing island.
