Crafting Family - July Sketch Challenge

I did a layout, can you believe it?  I haven't been feeling creative lately so while browsing the net I came across a Sketch Challenge that motivated me.

I can't even remember the last time I did a layout. It came together so easily and I love this picture of my sister Lisa and my niece Samantha (Karese's oldest daughter).  I have had this paper for ages but it just seemed so fitting for this picture I had printed a while ago and never did anything with it.  


Watermelon Card with Free PDF

It is a beautiful warm day here in Sunny California so I was inspired to make a Simply Sweet card for my next Cricut class using circles from Basic George and just fold them in half.

My Circles Measure:
Green: 5 1/4
White: 4 3/4
Pink Dots: 4 1/2

You can click "HERE" for Simply Sweet words in pdf.

New flowers from Flower Shoppe

Here are some roses I made using Flower Shoppe - - I think these are my favorite so far!!!

Here is how I made them..

1) Cut 4 flowers at the size of your choice. The yellow/orange are at 2" and the pink is at 2 1/2".  Ink your edges on both sides.

2)  Using something round and cup each pedal and glue the tab to close flowers.

3)  Cut down each pedal very close to the center.

4) Take one pedal from one flower and roll into a cone. This is the center of your flower.

5) Take all the other pedals on this one flower and wrap around the center.

6) Cut the bottom off and glue to the center of the second flowers.

7) Add glue to the center of each pedal on the second flower and push into the center. Using your pedal roller pull back the top of the pedals and curl under.

8)  Pinch and curl the edges of the last two flower.

9) Glue all together alternating pedals... Now the fun begins.... Play with it until you have the look you want.
