One heck of a digital scrapbooker’s dream sale going on now!

I am sad to see her go, as she is so talented and I feel so honored to have been on her team.  She found me through a design team call but asked me if I wanted to be a blog writer instead.  She had gone through my blog and she actually read some of the tutorials and looked into my blog before asking me to if I was interested, as she had plenty of designers to choose from.  I was so complemented I felt like I was writing for this Brazilian rock star!  Well at first I didn’t know she also does web design and got into photography professionally, the last couple of years of being on her team I have seen her photography grow tremendously.  She has decided that all 3 are just to much and from personal experience I understand you can’t do it all.  The photography is an addiction all on it’s own, and whole team is sad to see her leave designing kits.  So I thought I would post her amazing sale.  Just click on the image and it will take you to her Facebook page.

T-shirt transfer

I gave it a hand, to see what it was like then I decided to make my own design.  You see I have a 15-year-old that think’s he is “Swag” because at his school that means “cool”.   He doesn’t wear his pants below his butt, occasionally he will wear his baseball cap crooked and he is to darn cute to not love it.   I had to make him a t-shirt I couldn’t resist, gotta say he helped a little since I gave him choices of fonts and props he loves it, and so do I!

It has been forever since I have posted! Scrapbook layout inspiration, or is it?

I apologize to my readers, stick with me and I promise I will be back.  I blew up my laptop and desktop with a bad surge protector and just have been grabbing what I can when I can if I can’t craft on a tablet.  Without my own computer and Photoshop on it, I think my mojo has focused a different direction. I have hope though, for a new computer soon we will see! 

For now, I am kinda sad because my kids are going through this stage where they don’t want their pictures taken.  My son doesn’t want to be embarrassed by everyone on the football team, which infuriates me because I know all other mom’s are getting them and all I really need is one good one after a game I don’t care how sweaty and tired he looks.  I didn’t get the package and he didn’t do the individual.  He is second string so I don’t even get a alot of photo time in the game.  When he hike’s I can’t even see him but my big lens does come in handy so videos are it.  My daughter.. well a different story but I am hoping to get some today after making this.   I made her a mardi gras mask last night, she likes it so I may get a couple out of her. 

I saw this sketch on my facebook page from the Canadian Scrapbooker page.  I love love love them! It instantly inspired me to get up and make a layout.  I feel like my family is disappearing in a block of time since we don’t get out much anymore and do a lot, so our family is disappearing not being documented.  I gave the project life a shot but I am having a hard time with it.  As a photographer most my photos are vertical and they just don’t fit in my pages as easily as most ametuer photographers would be able to just slip them in.  So again I need my photoshop to preplan the pages and print out the little ones, which is annoying.  I don’t want my scrapbooking to die.  I just simply have to figure out what works for me. Plus I am just going to have to force it and think of non expensive ways to play.

I was looking up kids crafts looking for something to do with my daughter, I found some free stuff to trace that is how I came up with some shapes then cut them on the Cameo.

I have been crafting a little, making labels for people that turned out super awesome, a t-shirt transfer for the first time, will be posted this week.  I have done a few things to post soon.  So hang in there.  Hope to see you then!

Crayon box SVG File

Hi this is Lissa here to post my very last project from being on the creative team that Mike and Kenzie has had me on for the last 6 months.  It has been a treat, challenging at times when family gets heavy on the workload but I have enjoyed the different view of a design team.  Today I have something very simple for you, it is actually a crayon box but I love to make them for storage boxes,  I will put note pads in them, favorite pens, ect.  Using DCWV paper, I love this paper and didn’t need the panels they had to go with the file.   I put an insert on the inside because I love the washi tape look when all the pens are not in there.   I really love this file, they have one for 8 or 16 crayons. iv>

 Here is the backside.  Cute little thing for my desk at work!
 Now that I am looking at it again, I should have wrapped it in twine!
I hope I have inspired you to make one, they are great for cards to store in, fun little gift boxes for kids many possibilities.  I always try to to think outside of the box!
Thanks Hope to see you again!

Snapdragon Snippet in the Silhouette store – Labels

Hi this is Lissa to share a post with you about labels, these labels are named “for canning jar tops” in the store but you can use them for so much more.  These labels are from the Snapdragon Snippets Designs, Design ID #65834.  I was only able to show you one example on a card, you can use them on anything adding your own artwork fonts whatever you like.
Here are some of the other designs I used with the labels,  I drew some myself, (the pumpkin) I used some digital kits just a little of this and that, showing you how you can use them for labeling jars, having pretty things, cupcake toppers, even making sticker rewards for your kids.   I use the LD glossy photo sticker paper from Amazon and they print just beautiful.  They are suppose to be washable too!  I wished I could have used them in more samples but I ran out of time.   To much fun picking out the designs!  Here is a sheet I reprinted, can’t wait to use them I can even put them on scrapbook pages!

 

I hope you have enjoyed this post and the next time I see you it will be my last post!  The new team will be coming in and I will continue to enjoy the files I have used from this team!
Would love to hear your comments!
