Dare challenge #3 is up and this time the theme is 'Fantasy'... got to get started on that one!
Now for some Fiskars stuff! A couple of months ago I got asked to be a guest designer for Fiskars and they sent me a lovely box of goodies to create with. It's all been featured on the Fiskars blog in the last week so now I can share the projects with you :)
First up is the card I made for my sister's birthday. I loved the shine on the paper so I went with some silver numbers cut out with the cuttlebug (Hippee Chick font) and I used some of the vellum ribbon and ran it through my cuttlebug using an embossing folder... works quite well!
Then I used some of the paper I got sent to create a layout of me and my niece playing in the puddles while her Daddy was doing the 'Tough Guy' challenge. We had a huge amount of fun getting wet and dirty!! I made the letters from white cardstock using the cuttlebug (Red Tag Sale font). Then I added some chalk and doodling before adding some dimensional magic... when they tried I 'cracked' them a bit and they ended up looking quite cool :)My final project was a mini album created for my other niece. She'd been out picking flowers with her Mummy and they sent me the photos so I made her a mini album to remember her day :)The day before we went down to SENZ Miss Kody came for a visit to Auntie's house and I gave her the mini album.... she LOVED it and kept saying 'Me' 'Me' everytime we turned a page and she saw the next lot of photos... VERY cute!!Kody's 19 months old so I didn't think the embellishments would last for too long... but I didn't think she'd be quite so quick to do this!!!Have to admit though that when her Mummy tried to get the book back of her and Kody said 'MINE' I was quite thrilled LOL So cool to see your creativity being appreciated... even if it is only so she could wreck it a bit more!
Today is also Miss Mikayla's birthday! My 'baby' is now 14!!! I wanted to make her something really special and I had a lot of ideas... a mini album of her growing up, a canvas, a hand-made journal but in the end I got busy making her an 'M' for her bedroom wall.I'm stoked with how it turned out... and so was Mikayla this morning when I gave it to her... I definitely did hear the word 'awesome' come out of her mouth!! Happy Birthday Mikayla!!! Love you lots babe :)
