~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!

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!

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!
