making more flowers

Now, this flower making has become addictive :D They are super fun to make and not hard at all!
Here is a new lo with my dear daughter. Her 15th birthday is coming up in just over a week. I can't believe how fast time has flown. Seems like yesterday when this picture was taken. Reminds me of treasuring every moment. :D

and another...

I just had to try this out in girly colors. I love making these. I didn't have a magenta rose in my stash so I used a big white rose and my watercolors and hand colored it.

I am trying to make the most of my last week of summer vacation. I can't believe it is almost over, but it will be nice to into a routine again and go and meet all the great people I work with :D

Cards are fun

It is so much fun making cards. I especially love making different shapes of cards. Here is a little number I did for my little nephews 5th birthday using my slice machine.

I LUV shoes

Well...who doesn't! I made a template for this shoecard myself. What I like about it is that it opens partially. This card was for my best friend's birthday. This may have been the first, but certainly won't be the last. The template is ideal to use with double sided paper. Pattern in or out..I think it would be cute either way.

When I figure out how to convert the template into digital, I will share it with you guys. :D (it was just hand drawn on scrap paper)

Putting my new flowers to use

I couldn't resist putting my new flowers to use right away. Here are a couple of layouts from my daughters confirmation reception last year (it is a tradition up here). I used the gorgeous papers from Webster's pages for both of them.

My dad made the two magnificent cakes. :Þ and we did all the decorations and food ourselves.

Making my own flowers

I love flowers, no question about it! And I love even more to make them myself. I saw a tutorial a while ago on how to make flowers from synthetic fabric using a lighter or/and a heat gun. Blew me away. I stocked up on lots of fabrics to try this out. Here is my take on this fun technique! I LOVE how they turned out and now I can't stop!

Oh and they are SUPER EASY to make too :D

And a couple of close ups :D
