New Cards for PAPER FACES DESIGN TEAM

10 Sep

So, I am a little behind creating for my dear pal THERESE, but I have made a SMILEBOX  for her and you showcasing my latest cards using some of her DIGI STAMPS.  Oh, to be able to DRAW  like her.  I started out not really like DIGI STAMPS, but I think I am getting used to them.  But, they will never be my favorite like Therese’s CUT FILES are!!

Next week I will make a SMILE BOX showcasing everything I have up in my ETSY store.  My current plan is that when I make a project and I am allowed to showcase it, it will be shown here and then go in my ETSY store.  So if there is something you see and really like, well then, you can make it yours!

But, that is next week.  For now, I am off to attend a much-needed GIRLS WEEKEND with my BEEEYOUUUUUUTIIIIFUL mom-in-law and sisters in law.  A couple of days filled with SPIRITUAL uplift and fun at TIME OUT FOR WOMEN!!  Hooray, I went last year and can’t wait for this one that starts TONIGHT!!

So, bye for now and enjoy the SMILEBOX!!

TOO MANY IDEAS Design Team Project #2

15 Jul

I first came across Therese Travis on ETSY.COM.  I loved her FAIRY cut files.  She is a great designer and I loved the Fairy I had purchased from her.  I wrote her and gave her a suggestion for a certain type of Fairy, and do you know she made one based on my idea and her FAIRY, looked just like me, even though we had never met and at that point she had never even seen a picture of me.  She named the Fairy JEANNIE and you can see her in THERES’S ETSY store, HERE!

I felt like a celebrity when she sent me her final product.  So, for this challenge, I have used “JEANNIE” to create my scrapbook page about one small part of me.  I am very COMPLEX, so this is just a SAMPLE!!

Here is the page.

Bubble Page

The Text Reads:

“I have often thought of my life and all of the things I need to do with this analogy.

I feel like all the things I need to do and all the things I want to do are bubbles.  You know how when you blow bubbles from a bubble wand and hundreds of bubbles float around?  No two are fully connected and they all float in a different direction.

Well that is how I feel!

I am trapped in one of the bubbles, and all the things I need and want to do are in their own bubbles and I can’t get to any of them.  I am trapped in my own bubble and can only look, but not REACH or CONNECT, at the things that I want or need to get done.

It is a very helpless feeling.”

Lower Half of page:

I am trying to show the details and layers in this picture.  Can you see them?

Best of all, here is “JEANNIE”, or should I say “ME”!!  Such a great file to work with!  Thanks Therese!

As usual, I would love to hear your comments, so let me know what you think!!

My very first Design Team Challenge

18 Jun

One of my new best friends makes the most adorable SVG files and has a store on ETSY called Paper Faces Designs.  You can find her blog at http://theresetravis.net/ I have been honored to be part of her all brand new start-up DESIGN TEAM and I am GIDDY.  This is my project using one of her designs.  The file is called “CHLOE” in her ETSY shop.  If you have a CRICUT and a little girl, you have to visit her blog and  ETSY store.

My project will be one of a total of 7 you will see over time.  I want to keep this short so I will not explain what my project will all entail, but my project I am posting here is Phase 1 of 7 phases (think kids).  I hope you enjoy.  Please leave me some feedback and critique the project, ok?

When I made this for my daughter, I really thought I had created a one of a kind SOMETHING!  It was what got me excited about even opening an ETSY store and to create a blog.  Tell me what you think and keep this in mind for any of your future special occasions or any future gifts you might need to get.  I will have many variety’s of these to come.  I will also get some done for the BOYS too.  All in good time, as my grandma would say!
