Weddings… Anniversaries?

Please join us over at The Outlawz Challenges, this weeks theme is to create a card for a special couple.

My choice…. was a card for my handsome guy and myself.

Using my Silhouette Cameo, I created this card, with an image from the Silhouette design store.


Plain white card stock, one photo, one design cutting file, a little sentiment, dotted wash tape and done.

Easy peasy, CAS just the way I like it during the holiday rush seasons!

Blessings and hugs, Lori m

Merry Christmas…..

and Happy Holidays to all!

The Outlawz Clean And Simple ( CAS) challenge this week is to use a "Snowman" on your project!

I decided to make up some holiday tags for our Christmas gifts.  Here's my project for the week.


The stamped image and text are from Close to My Heart, and the pretty crinkled ribbon is from Diana at DL.ART. The stamp set is an older set so I'm not sure if it's still available.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year…..Happy Holidays to all!

Enjoy, hugs, and blessings, Lori m

The Outlawz…..

Clean And Simple (CAS) challenge…..this week "Anything Goes"!

With Christmas approaching, I tend to make homemade fudge for holiday gifts and decorate jars to gift in.

  This months SPONSOR: Bugaboo
   PRIZE: 7 free images
                                                                                                                    
              
Here's my Anything Goes project for this week, I used an image MMoo Rosebush in the center of my wreath.

This gorgeous cutout wreath can be found over at ScrapCutsbyJudy.

I thought this would make a nice gift and Christmas card combo for a few folks. There's just so many pretty ways to make this but I chose red and white as my main focus. I added in a Bugaboo stamp to the center and then added a Merry Moo..Mas tag that I made.  





Here is one of the altered jars I have done for our Christmas treats we'll be handing out this year.



I used stamps, holidays card stock and my Sizzix to cut the tags, the pretty crinkled ribbon is from Diana over at DL.ART, just love her colors and the texture of the ribbons.  

Enjoy, blessings and hugs, Lori m

Christmas and Holiday cards…..

I'm almost finished and had to cave and buy a few, this year I'm just beyond lagging with being ready for the holidays.

So….. here's what I have finished up to now.



 Second up are tags I created as Print and Cuts using my Silhouette Cameo


Last row are card files from the Christmas Popup Collection in the back, 

Next row are Merry Christmas cards in Italian that were custom created, a few years back by Tina Finch from Forever Memories for You

The front row is the Print and Cut cards I made using a photo from our Christmas Tree, and one from a Hotel's Christmas tree, then I added in a photo inside an ornament of Jack and I using Adobe Photoshop. 
Cutting the print and cards on my Silhouette Cameo was a breeze and time saver. Next to my power house BossKut Gazelle, it might just be my next favorite.   


I'm pooped out and still have baking, shopping and so much more, to get done before the holidays, wish me luck.  

Hugs and Blessings, Lori m
