Just wanted to take a minute to thank all of you who have been visiting me lately and helping me to build my readership. I hope you know that I really appreciate every single comment you make and get so excited to read your thoughts.
Today is the last day for my giveaway on this post so make sure you are entered to win! Good luck to each of you.
Today, I have for you a fun little layout that represents my doggy (whose name is Bean, complete with all the variations of nickname that you might imagine!)
It also represents my foray into the world of the Silhouette SD (please don't mention to me the fact that they JUST came out with the Cameo, I will stick my fingers in my ears if you do!!!)
I've had my Silhouette sitting on my desk for a good six months. Quietly collecting dust while I sat staring at it in fear. Yes.....FEAR. I was afraid of setting it up.
Good electronics are fearful things. Add to them computerness and you have sheer terror. At least that is how I tend to feel.
But the other day, I faced my fear, and the result was nothing short of AMAZING.
Did I tell you that I used to do graphic design for Scrap Girls, LLC? Well, I did. I created my own digital collections and so forth. But then I just kind of lost steam. Life got in the way, other things took precedence and eventually that chapter in my life ended and a new one began.
But.....it prepared me to be able to create my very own shapes with the Silhouette. I've done two so far and I am in heaven. See that butterfly down there? I did it. I created it.
No offence to the folks at Silhouette but quite a lot of their designs are created a little less professionally than I'd like. Enter ME! Who knows where this will go. But for now, I'm just dizzy with the glee of creating and cutting!
So here is my first layout using the Silhouette. It's also inspired by the challenges over at JBS Mercantile. (I may have found another happy place over there) And yes, there is washi tape! Can you spot it?
The original inspiration for this layout came from a card by Danielle Flanders.
Hope you enjoyed! Have a great day!
