A Masculine Layout for My Sheri Crafts

My 2 year old is all boy. He loved gadgets and anything to do with technology even when he was a baby. One time, Daddy left his USB for his Iphone plugged in the computer. It probably looked delicious, so the baby promptly put it in his mouth. The monitor displayed this message: "Error, unrecognizable device". I think he was trying to download something. lol! For this layout, I used Pro Player Paper Packet, Pro Player My Stickease Assortment and Durable Triangle Studs. I used the Front Center Trio layout pattern in page 70 of My Reflections Scrapbook Program .

A Card For Dad

We have an "Anything Masculine" challenge at My Sheri Crafts, hosted by design team sister Sandy.  Well it's Dad's turn to be celebrated, so I decided to make a card for Father's Day.  I used Chocolate cardstock for the base, and made a stamped collage using the My Hero stamp set, an exclusive hostess incentive from Close to My Heart. I cut the frames using some Spellbinders dies.  The background was stamped with Bamboo ink, and the sentiment and main image was stamped using Chocolate ink.  I added Baker's twine and some Durable Triangle Studs to complete the simple, masculine card.
Happy Father's Day to my hubby, to Dad and all the Dads out there!

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Design team sister Sarah gave us the challenge to use at least three flowers on our project.  I altered a couple of canvases from the dollar store and came up with a Paris theme.  The first canvas has a Marie Antoinette theme.  I used paper from DCWV, Prima flowers and pop-dotted a cake sticker from Webster's Pages.  The edges have flouncy stretch lace trim from my stash.  The centers of the large flowers are from Recollections.  The third flower on the design is found in Marie Antoinette's fascinator. :-)  I cut the Eiffel tower at 8 1/2" using the Summer in Paris Cricut cartridge.
The second canvas also has the 8 1/2" Eiffel tower but this time around, I used Graphic 45's French Country 12x12 paper and chipboard.  I fussy cut the flowers, added some micro beads from Martha Stewart, added Stickles to accent the Eiffel tower and glued some photo corners from Tim Holtz.  This piece now resides in Barb's home. :-)
