Used Dryer Sheets Flower

It's my turn to do the Inspirational post for Feeling Sketchy Challenge Blog
(I saw this on Splitcoast Stampers and really liked it.)
I am going to show how I make a flower using used dryer sheets, circle punches, spray paint, glitter glue & a brad to hold it all together.

To start, use your circle punch (it's best to try to use three different size punches if you have them...I only have two circle punches so I had to cut 4 of the bigger one and trim them down to make them smaller.)   
Punch out 6 circles on cardstock to use as your template to cut them out on the dryer sheet.
Note: Don't try punching just the dryer sheet, it does not work.  It will jam up your punch.
Use a scissors to cut around your template on the dryer sheet.
Next lay your cut out dryer sheet circles on paper towels to spray them with the paint.
Let them dry...the dryer sheets will dry a little lighter than it looks when wet.
After they are dry...lay them out on a sheet of wax paper and use your glitter glue to go around the edges of  3 of your circles.
Allow the glitter glue to dry completely.
Then stack your circles - using the biggest circle with the glitter glue on it as your bottom piece.
One glitter glue circle, on plain circle, one glitter circle, etc.
Then add a brad to the center to hold them all together, finishing your flower.
Now you have a flower to add to a card, scrapbook page, or any other project you want to.

I hope I have inspired you to try different things in your creativity!
Have fun!

Happy Birthday card for my daughter

I made this birthday card for my daughter Feather's birthday this month.
A lot of people get her name mixed up and call her Flower.
My daughter is very, very special to me :-)
And I wanted to make her a card that would make her smile.
I made the rose flowers using my cricut machine and the Artiste Cartridge.  I then cut the vase out using the Everyday Pop-Up Cartridge.  I drew on the green stems for the flowers using a Promarker. I added a purple bow and computer generated Happy Birthday.

May's Scrapbooking Layout for Heart 2 Heart

It's time for May's scrapbooking layout at Heart 2 Heart!

It's called:  Magical May
         * 12" x 12" layout(s) showing a “magical” moment you have had in your life time.  This can be recent or something from way back in the day.
         * Create your own designed papers using CTMH stamp sets. This can be your background base pages, photo mats, layered strips, or even flags. Must be able to see the stamped design.
         * At least 1 photo required.

    Took me a while to figure out what to do for this challenge.
To me, the Ocean is magical.  So that is the theme I used for my layout.
Several years back my husband and I, along with another couple took a trip to Florida.
I was in awe when I saw the ocean for the first time ever.

The background of my LO is made with several different CTMH stamp sets, inkpads & markers.
Stamps used: Glamour Uppercase Alphabet, Dreamer, My Life, Lifting Spirits, Balloons, Shooting Star & Delicate Wings (which is a Petite Perks).
