Accucut had a die that scored and cut ...but now they have one long enough to make the flowers! I'm so excited...because boy does it ever make them EASY! And you have to do it run a 6x12 piece of paper through the machine using this new die and the all the scores for folding are right there. It makes it so easy to keep all the folds the same size, and even.
This will be my Make and Take Project in the Accucut booth on Sat, at CHA.
It was so fun to be able to use Fancy Pants Designs Paper for this Project... aren't they so bright and summery?
The ribbons ties will also have little AccuCut tags pinned on them with colored safety pins, with a "For You" stamped on them. The beautiful ribbons and colored pins are from Creative Impressions (thanks Lessa)!
I had some fun last night , messing around with some different "holiday themed" flowers, and trying out some different things.
The vintage Images are of course , Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage.
I used a Scalloped Scissors on the edge of the Vintage one with the bow. Inked the edges and then spritzed the entire thing with "Iridesent Gold" Glimmer Mist.
I used spray adhesive and fine glitter on the snowflake, and added a jingle bell to the Christmas themed one.
The variations are endless, I still want to do a baby garland with smaller ones and also a Valentine themed one. It's just that darn "time" thing again.lol
I also wanted to remember post a link to my new friend Kathy's blog HERE so you could see my inspiration for the Canvas Bag I did , using Glimmer Mist.
And while your checking out that ...take a minute to see these adorable little birds that Laurie makes over at Charming Designs I LOVE THEM!
I also wanted to say , How thrilled I am to Announce we have added two new girls to the Crafty Secrets Design Team. Annette Prudhomme , who Sandy and I met at the Show in TX last month, and Janel Brown, who I've known and become good friends with , over the last year or so. WELCOME girls!
It's another GORGEOUS day here in Nebraska, so even though I'm locked in my studio (lol), the windows are cranked wide open!!! I'm determined to enjoy it, one way or another!
