My new apron

My DH's grandma was in town for a couple of days.  I needed an apron for my Demo classes. She helped me put this together.  I love the way it looks.  It's so bright, it's so me.  Joanns is having a really good sale on fabric. I only payed $5.60 for all this fabric.

Finally it's done.

I've been working on this layout since last night. I couldn't find the perfect something to finish it. Glad it's finally done.  This is my daughter and I at the movies.  At the beach they offer free kids movies on Tuesdays during the summer.  We go to MCD's and have some dinner before hand. Which so happens that Tuesday is also family night at MCD's and happy meals are only $1.40. Then we head to the beach.  We have such a great time her and I.

I've had company for a little while so I haven't had much time to make videos.  I'll be posting a short video tomorrow. Just a quick little tip. 

 Next week is card week. YEAH!! From Mon. Jul. 28th till Fri. Aug. 1st I'll be doing a video a day showing you how to make a card.  I'll keep them simple but with some sort of fun technique in them.  I think there is only one card that requires a special tool.  The rest you can make with things laying around. 

Here a few card I finished this week.  Got a couple of new toys and I was just itching to use them. Even if it meant staying up till 1 am to do so!!!!

Cricut ink video

Here is a quick video I made showing how to use the Cricut inks. The last part didn't exactly color like it was supposed to. It's hard working with one hand. Plus I didn't find the center correctly. Well I hope it answers some questions as to what you can do with them. If you have any more let me know.

Thanks to all that participated in my first challenge.  The winner is Mary. Congrats. Here is the submission picture. Didn't she do a fab job!!!!  

Fiskars sewing challenge

There was a sewing challenge over at the Fiskateers message board. Well it got my juices flowing and I came up with this layout. So cute. My daughter was standing next to me the whole time. The sounds she was making every time I did something else she though was cute. I'm glad that she's happy with her layout. This is her 3rd birthday party. It feels so good to scrapbook again. Now I hope I can keep the creativity alive and catch up a bit more.

(All of the border punches and shears are make by Fiskars)
I used the Scallop daisy border punch for the top. The bottom scallop border was done with the scallop sewing shears then glued the left over flower confetti form the scallop daisy border punch. The grass was done with Leave it to weaver border punch then the trimmed with the pinking shears to make it more jagged.
