Freebie Friday {Polka Dot Baby}



Happy Friday! There is an adorable new Freebie in the Bugaboo store today- Polka Dot Baby. 

My friend is expecting a baby girl any second now so I made this card to send to her once that little baby gets here. 


It was fun to make a baby girl project again, I have been in baby boy mode because of my little Deacon. Getting all the pink out was a nice change. 


Head on over to the store to pick up your freebie and be sure to check out all the new releases while you're there. And don't forget to stop over at the Catch the Bug blog to see more great DT projects made with the Polka Dot baby.

Oldie But A Goodie Time!

Hello! Hope you are all doing well today!

I can't believe my time as a Guest Designer with Bugaboo is almost over! I have enjoyed it so much and am going to miss it when I'm done! Jodie does such a fabulous job each week with the images and the ladies on the DT are all so wonderful! I'm definitely sad that my time is up but am so grateful I had the opportunity to play along with them for the past 3 months.

I am sharing another Oldie But A Goodie from Bugaboo Stamps today. I used the Dottie Wonder Woman image. This is one of my favorite cards I've made lately! I sent this to my sister (she's a big Wonder Woman fan).


I also used the Dottie Wonder Woman image to make a magnet for my sister's fridge too. I used the Silhouette and the adhesive magnetic sheets to make this. I hope she likes it.

Silhouette Project For Me & A Homeschool Project For Them

So you should all know by now that I love ANY reason to use my Silhouette. Makes me laugh that hubby said "If you really think you'll use it, go ahead and buy it". I've used it everyday since I've gotten except for the day I was sick with the stomach flu that I could barely get out of bed.  

This week our Bible Story was Noah's Ark.. I had seen these cute Noah's Ark files in the Silhouette Online Store and thought they would be really great for this lesson. I made myself some magnets to use as I read the girls the story and then I made them each a set to play along while I told the story. Then I had then re-tell the story with their set (this was so cute and funny!). 

After they had the story down pretty good we moved onto an art project. I had printed out a rainbow coloring page and let them glue their sets onto the page. We used cotton balls to make the clouds. They had a lot of fun with this lesson (and so did Mommy!)


Having fun!


Lily take coloring VERY seriously

The magnets. Maddy yelled at me because my Rainbow is in the wrong order.

Easter Bunny Box Card


Today I am sharing the Easter Box card I made using this file from the Silhouette Online Store.  I filled all the pieces with color or design in the Silhouette Studio and then used print and cut to cut the pieces out, then I just had to assemble them. And of course, I added some stickles and enamel dots to finish it off. 


I kind of felt like I was cheating when I made this card though- no coloring and only stamping the sentiment was kind of odd for me. I did have fun putting it together though. I really enjoy making these box cards.  



I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Easter/ Sweet Treats challenge.
