View Finder Reel project - Trip to Disneyland

I am sooo very excited to share my project for The Cutting Cafe this week. I used the View Finder Reel and a Film Strip to make this using pictures of two of my beautiful nieces at Disneyland. This project was so much fun to make - takes a bit of time to assemble but so worth it.

Below is a video that will walk you through some of the steps of making this. 

Ken and Barbie Graduate

Hi Everyone, I made these for a friend and thought I would share..... Click "here" for MTC and "here" for SVG - Please leave me a comment below if you use the file. I would love to see what you do with it.


Baby Shower Banner

TGIF!! This has been one long week but my work week ended with a bang yesterday..... Let me explain.

Last week we got a call asking if we could help make a banner for a Baby Shower based on a banner he (yes, I said he) saw on Etsy (you can see it "here"). I told him over the phone that I could.

After I saw the banner on Etsy I asked him if I could take some creative direction with his banner.  I knew it was for a baby shower and the theme was butterflies - elegant with a rose pink, sage green and cream. I asked his budget and we agreed on about $25 dollars (he provided the rose paper from another store).

BIGGEST compliment - He loved it so much that instead of paying the $25 he paid $30 - MADE my day!
PLUS, I had the banner on the craft table at the store and got TWO other customers hire me to do banners for them as well....

I love it when a customer puts their trust in me.... What's sad is these pictures do NOT show how elegant and beautiful this banner is in person...…
