The Olympics

The Summer Olympics will start next weekend in Rio.  To celebrate this event, Design Team Sister, Sarah, had asked us to create any project with a sports theme.  Join us to help support the Olympics over at My Sheri Crafts

 
For this theme, I wanted to showcase my son's first ever race.  This was a casual race just for kids at Walt Disney World in January 2016.  It was only 1 mile long and without practice and running through mud (since it had just finish raining), he did it in less than 10 minutes.


He was so HAPPY to get his medal!


This is a 2-page scrapbook layout.  They are each 8" x 8" layout pages.  I started an album to store all of our race bibs... and this was the first one I actually made into a layout

  • Layout size: 8" x 8"
  • Papers from DCWV
  • "my first race" was designed in SCAL and cut with the Cricut
  • "I DID IT!" was designed in SCAL and cut with the Cricut
  • "Running Mickey" was an image I printed out from the internet
  • Journaling was printed out using Word Document

Thanks for looking!

My Sheri Crafts #186


Continuing on with the summer theme, Design Team Sister, Glenda, has asked us to make any project that features  ice cream.  Oh yeah!  My favorite type of treat is this week's challenge over at My Sheri Crafts

I took advantage of this theme to make my niece, Emma, a birthday card.  It's the perfect theme since her birthday party is a "sweets" theme


I made a variation of step A card.  2" x 4.25" for the left panel to fit the ice cream and 3.5" x 3.5" for the shorter panel to fit the "4" since Emma is turning 4! I know you can't see it, but every element is popped-up for dimension

  • Card size: 5.5" x 4.25"
  • Papers from Basic Gray
  • Ice cream is from Cricut cartridge: Sweet Treats
  • Embossing on ice cream scoops from Cuttlebug: D'vine Swirl
  • Embossing on ice cream cone from Cuttlebug: Mandarin Screen
  • Stamp: "happy birthday" colored with Copics markers
  • Stamp: "small present" colored with a glitter gel pen
  • Tiny pink flowers are a Fiskar punch
  • Glitter on ice cream scoops are Stickles
  • "Emma" is cut in SCAL - font: Aldhabi
  • "4" is cut in SCAL - font: Impact

Thanks for looking!

My Sheri Crafts #185


It's summer time!  Design Team Sister, Sue, has asked us to make any project that has a beach or seaside theme for this week's challenge over at My Sheri Crafts

I chose to go with "flip flops" and the straps and sentiment are all popped up for a bit of dimension


This isn't a card you can open up but more like a postcard where you can write on the back.  It will fit a regular note card (A2) envelope


Yes, I know... a little design flaw.  It's not that easy to write on the back with all the popped up elements on the front :P 
 

  • Papers are DCWV
  • Flip flop cut is from Cricut cartridge: Pink Journey
  • "missing you" is a stamp
  • Green leaves is a Sizzix die cut

Thanks for looking!

My Sheri Crafts #184



It's a color theme!  Design Team Sister, Peachy, has chosen this week's theme over at My Sheri Crafts in honor of our upcoming holiday.  Make any project in red, white, and blue

My project is a decor to hang on the door (for inside).  I saw a red, white, and blue ribbon and used that as my inspiration.  I made a giant ribbon to display the "4th of July"


The circle portion is 12" in diameter and with the tail, it's 22" tall



The "4th of July" is from Cricut cartridge: Phrases.  I used embossing powder on "July" and I didn't realize I didn't have red embossing powder, so I used glitter for the "4th of" to make it sparkle.  Both "4" and "July" are popped up
 
  • Papers are DCWV
  • "4th of July" is from Cricut cartridge: Anna's Garden
  • Blue scalloped circle is a Spellbinder die cut
  • Red, white, and blue stars are buttons
  • Red, white, and blue ribbon was from DT sister, Charlotte

My Sheri Crafts #183



This week at My Sheri Crafts, it is my turn to choose a theme...  I chose to go with tags.  Make any project that features a tag!  

I decided to make a non-traditional tag-shaped tag.  I got the inspiration from walking around Walmart of all places... I saw some tags shaped like feet and hands for newborn presents.  I thought they were the cutest things so I said to myself... "why not?"  I am going to start making more tags shaped like different objects




  • "Happy Birthday" is a stamp
  • Papers are K & Company
  • Butterfly is from from Cricut cartridge: Anna's Garden
  • Rolled up flowers are Sizzix die cut
  • Purple paper flower is from a Fiskar flower punch
  • Flourish are Cheery Lynn die cuts
