~Flashback Friday Die Cut~

First project using a die cut!

The very first project I blogged about were these party favors
that I created for my sister's shower.

April 23,2011

They were embossed with texture plates and cut from a Sizzix die.

The diaper cake centerpieces I made had an AWESOME ribbon that I based everything off of.

I loved planning for my sister's shower, even though I couldn't be there.

It was my way of being present.

Isn't that what we do?

Create from our hearts and send them out?

Amy's got an awesome lineup of inspiration and Sylvia is sponsoring a generous prize.

Thank you for stopping by today!

  5. Really fun die cut project! I love those flowers! Love your blog too. Thanks for playing with us at Flashback Friday! God bless.

  6. What a fabulous project! I love your thought, too, that we create from our hearts - I know that I often feel that way, especially when creating something for someone special to me. Thanks so much for sharing it with us at Flashback Friday :) Now I'm off to check out more of your blog!

  7. Oh shoot! I forgot to mention that I wanted to respond to your comment on my coffee-inked card, but you're set as "no-reply blogger." There's no smell once the coffee dries :) I didn't think there was, but I went back & did a sniff test to be sure. Too bad, because coffee-scented would be nice!

  8. Thanks so much for playing along! I've featured your project on the Flashback Friday blog!

  9. How lovely! I think you are right about your idea. We do create from our hearts and then send it out!


Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to stop in! ;)
