Celebrate Today!

I believe everyday should be celebrated!  Which is one reason why I tend to scrapbook way more everyday moments then holidays!  But, today I'm not sharing a scrapbook layout, I'm sharing a simple framed piece of wall decor that I made to go along with the "celebrate today" theme.

I used some pretty background papers by Studio Calico and sewed them together with my sewing machine.  Then I cut out the “celebrate today” text twice using my Silhouette Cameo…once on brown cardstock and once on black cardstock.  When I glued to two layers together I let the black peek out a tiny bit behind the brown to give it a bit of a shadow.

And then I was ready to make the cupcake using the Basically Bare Stack-A-Bellies Cupcakes.  I love that the pack has pieces that are felt, chipboard, and cardboard…I used the felt frosting (there's two different styles in the package!), the cardboard cake, and the chipboard wrapper.  They looked so cute all stacked up that I really didn’t have to do too much to them.  I just “wallpapered” the chipboard wrapper and added a few embellishments.

I love that they are so dimensional when stacked up!!  It looks so cool,  especially when I added the glass back into the frame.  (I removed the glass from the frame to take photos with out a glare.)

Simple Scrapper Project and Digi-Scrapbook Page

BLOG Erin Bassett - Imaginisce - Enchanted - 4x4 mini 1 I'm excited about a couple of things...

  • First off...I used my Cricut Imagine for the first time to create that tag on the cover of this 4" x 4" mini album.
  • Secondly, I created this project for Simple Scrapper  - I'm creating over there now!  :)

I think this will be a great little mini-book for my niece (4yrs old) to put her pics in.  She just started ballet lessons so I'm sure those would be great!

I used January's Simple Pages/Projects to create it along with Imaginisce paper (that princess is from Imaginisce too).

Surprisingly, it only took me couple of minutes to create that tag...granted, I demo'd the Imagine back at CHA Summer for ProvoCraft so I wasn't a complete novice at it.  I just choose what colors/patterns I wanted...and then had the Imagine print it and cut it out.  It made me so happy to create the perfect embellishment for this project.

I also created a digi layout with one of the templates from January's Simple Pages/Projects and with this FREE digi kit.

CHA Summer 2010 (Plus a peek at new Yudu stuff!)

CHA Summer 2010 copy  The CHA trade show was a's always great to see the new product and to meet up with friends!  

{Thanks Elena for the photo!}

I was mostly working in the ProvoCraft booth so I didn't see every little thing there was to see at other booths, but I did take my photo with Woody and Buzz!

While in the ProvoCraft booth I demo'd the new Cricut Imagine...let me tell you, I think it's a game changer!  It really is amazing!  To best describe it is to say it's part Cricut, part HP printer.  Here's what the color printer ink looks like:

ProvoCraft is also coming out with new Yudu stuff!  There's a new screen coming out that will allow you to use Yudu glue to screen print with glue and then apply glitter or sheets of foil or sheets of flock to it so that when it's ironed the glitter, foil, or flock will stick just to the glue and you'll end up with a fabulous design.  Here's some of the samples from the booth and a video of Kim showing how it works.   {Click on the photos to see them larger.}
