Bird Whisperer

I think this is one of the fastest layout I have ever done! 

I used this weeks sketch from Sketchy Thursdays, and supplies from MME's Lime Twist collection. I love these pictures of Dax that were taken when he was not quite two. He cracked me up trying to talk to the seagulls. Even funnier, that they just stood there and listened to him...LOL.

Pirate Princess-Swirlydoos

I am a subscriber to Swirlydoos monthly kit club. I love these kits! they are always full of the newest products and stocked full of shabby goodness. The only problem I find is , all the papers are so pretty I have issues cutting them I hoard them....LOL.  Here is a layout I made using this months kit, Beau Jardin.

I did a lot of fussy cutting on this layout. I used a dinner plate to outline a circle in the center, so I could cut around the designs. I used pop dots to give the whole layer dimension.

I used diamond dust on the word princess in the title. It's hard to get the full effects of this in the picture, but in person, it is spectacular. It is so pretty and sparkly.

I did more fussy cutting on the butterflies, then embellished them with Stickles and Liquid Pearls. I also Skickled the crown.

I incorporated one of the flowers I have made from a vintage wedding gown I picked up at the second hand store a while ago. Below are more yummy flowers and sprays from Swirlydoos.

Look at this gorgeous trim! I sewed on a string of pearls for some added interest. I love this trim!

Swirlydoos has a very talented bunch of designers, you should go check out the gallery.

The Cuttlebug Spot

The Spot is back up and running, and I'm late with my post...wouldn't you know it! For some reason, I can't get it out of my head that the post needs to go live on Wednesdays. It hasn't been that way for months!
So anyway...on to this weeks challenge, which is to incorporate a turkey into your project. NO....your hubby doesn't count! LOL. Here's the card I made this week.

Be sure to head over to The Cuttlebug Spot to see the awesome projects the rest of the design team made.

shabby chic frame

I made this layout for the 52 Week Challenge that I am a part of with Scrappin-N-Chattin and incorporated one other of the monthly challenges, which is to use masking on a layout.
It's kind of hard to see the masking, as I have followed the outline with gems. I just love how the frame turned out, I made it by layering cuts I made on the Cricut using the Sentimentals cartridge and the frame on page 28. I set it on layers and cut it at 5 1/2 inches. Be sure you set your speed to minimum due to the intricate design. I used it upside down on my project.  You can see the process in the video below.
