I'm very limited on what I can do scrappy-wise since being on bedrest, but this month, my Silhouette Cameo and I have become best friends. I make files laying here in bed and then when I'm up for a bathroom break, I plug and cut. Also, one of our wonderful members posted regarding sharing your library of shapes from one computer to another (only for personal use, no file stealing!) which would make this even easier for me.
Here's a sneak of my favorite layout this month. I designed this word art on the Silhouette Studio software and cut it on white cardstock. From there, I adhered it to my page and outlined it with a precision pen to make it stand out a bit more. I still thought it needed something, so I misted with Piglet into a ramekin from my kitchen and then dipped a paintbrush into it, then into some water and water-colored the heart.
On this same layout, I included some hidden journaling. I wanted to use the Dear Lizzy vellum on the die-cutter and it worked wonderfully. I love the layers of vellum!
This layout was made using the main kit plus the Versailles add-on.
Another layout I made in bed. I think stitching by hand is one of the easiest techniques to do while on my back. This took LOTS of embroidery floss, but I like the outcome. The layout combined the main kit, Versailles add-on and Montmarte add-on.
This is my layout made using only the main kit...and it's a 2-pager at that! I love this gray polka paper. It's an exclusive this month, so be sure to grab some SC patterned paper as I'm sure you'll want more.
And last, a picture to either warm your heart or gross you out.
Claire spends Mondays at my friend Ashley's house. This week, she played outside almost all day since the weather was so pretty and chased their dog, Tess around. She *loves* big dogs. LOVES them. Wants to hug them and kiss them. And once that's accomplished, she wants more hugs and kisses. Poor Tess didn't know what to do with so much attention.
