New Arrivals......

I love babies. I love preparing for baby. My cousin is due to have a baby in January and will be having a baby shower next month. She just found out she was having a girl, so now I was ready to make the card I will send for her shower. I quickly turned to LSS's Babies and Bows collection for this adorable shoe! The collection contains 17 printable images on sale now for only $3.00!!

So do want to know how truly versatile these images are? Well I was feeling lazy tonight, and not in the coloring mood. I uploaded the image to Adobe Photoshop Home Edition. Then I chose to use the coloring book option to re-color, or in this case add color to the already black and white image. I colored in the image, then printed it out on photo paper for a glossy look. This was so fast and easy and I had nothing to put away when I was done. :) I cut a frame from the Home Accents Cricut Cartridge, added the embossed button border from Cuttlebug, added some traditional stamps and some rhinestones, and I was done! See you can be crafty and lazy at the same time!
Speaking of new arrivals, hop on over to Lindsay's Stamp Shop and take a peek at the newest collection, Funky Forest! You will love this one!

I did manage to get a layout done over the weekend too. I am finding my mojo little by little. This is my lil sis and her family. All the circles are hand stitched, and took FOREVER! But I love the look!

*** Family was cut from the Home Accents Cricut Cartridge

Thanks for stopping by! Til next time, Happy Scrapping!

Awesome Catt - crafty, beautiful and no mess - I love it! I guess I really should drag my Wishblade out so I can cut neat stuff like you guys do!
