Hi! What a hot day it was here and they say that it is going to get even hotter over the next 3-4 days. Roll on Winter I say, I just loath Summer.
I have been at work all day today so no card making today, but I will show you what I made the other day with some scrap card stock.
It seems as though everyone is trying to use up some left over stock that they have used over Christmas, so I thought that I would try and do the same.
These little flowers I gained inspiration from Dawn McVey, what a truly lovely and inspiring person she is, so thanks Dawn.
My take on these flowers were to cut them out on my Silhouette Machine ( and if anyone in Australia is looking to buy a Silhouette Machine you can buy them at Scrapbook Boutique, a link to this site is on my sidebar and I am sure the Evelyn will be more then happy to help you out) I just love my little machine and with the new people on board such as Hero Arts, House of 3 and Donna Downey over at Silhouette America, I am sure that this will become a very popular tool. They have the most amazing images to download and cut from there site and it is really easy to use. You won't be sorry that you brought one, well worth it.
So back to the flowers I cut 2 different sizes out, scrunched them up in my hand to give it another element to the flower petals then added a button and with some twine and stuck them together. Really quick and easy way of using my scraps up and then I have them on hand to use later down the track. I am quite sure that you have seen something similar, but this is my take on some cute embellishments. (Sorry about the photography, my camera is only very basic and I am still learning...LOL).
Well I will sign off for today, need to go and have a shower after such a hot day.
Have great Saturday night everyone!
Thanks for stopping by!
