Happy Friday!

Hello and Happy Friday to you!

Here are a few projects that I have created recently. Thought I would share. I also want to wish you a sunny and fantastic Memorial Day weekend.

This layout is for an upcoming challenge over at SSC! I was making a sample for one of the groups there. The twist is to make a hand made flower and incorporate it on your layout. I made 2 styles. The light pink at the top right is felt strips gathered together at the center. Cover with a button and fill in the holes with brads. The double stacked flower on the bottom left is adhesive backed felt cut with the Sizzix machine. It was fun! The light on the first picture below is so bright, sorry about that.

Close up to show ribbon strips and the Sizzix double daisy flower. I love the acetate frame on top of the photo. I can't get enough of these lately!

This light pink felt material flower is soo soft. I can't wait to find more colors. Can you see my little lady bug frame...walking around the edge?! Love that! Looove my Martha Punches!!!

Above is a full shot of a pennant/banner I made for my daughter's room. "Theadora" Below is a close up view to show the details of the banner. I added charms she had acquired over time and pieces from broken bracelets. I mounted patterned paper-(Cosmo Cricket -"Ducks in a Row" ) over chipboard triangular pieces. I used my Crop a Dile to punch the holes. That thing is a monster-love how I don't have to hammer anymore!

"Island Escape"
Embossed background with Cuttlebug swirls folder. This card was created for the Paper Scraps challenge over at SSC. I die cut (Cricut) the chair in a solid piece (Life's a Beach cart) then covered it with additional glittery scrap strips. The umbrella was cut with my Sizzix.

"You are my sunshine"
Not much complication going on here. Flowers are cut out of random material with my good ol' handy Sizzix. I love this machine...still! The best part about this card for me, is the metal edge. I found it at AC Moore. It's by 7 gypsies. I love it! Talk about easy to use or what? They come "adhesived" already! So far so good-it stayed put right on top of the fabric too. Two 10" or 8" strips to a package for I think under $6-. I am saving the other for a paper mini book I'll be making soon.
