Big News!!

Oh my goodness!!

I’ve been keeping a big fat secret for a few days now, and I am thrilled to be able to finally spill the beans about it today!!  You all know how much I adore my Silhouette electronic die cutting machine, right?!  Like, I love it so much that I can’t imagine my crafting life without it now.  Many of the projects that I’ve had picked up for publication recently have been created using my Silhouette.

So, when I saw that the amazing Jackie Rockwell was starting The Cameo Spotlight Challenge Blog, specific to CARDS created with the Silhouette, I just about hyperventilated! I submitted an application for the design team, and to my utter thrill and surprise, Jackie invited me to join the team!!  Are you kidding me?!!  And wait until you see who my teammates are – oh my goodness – total crafting ROCK STARS!!  Be sure and click on through to The Cameo Spotlight Challenge Blog to find out who they are, and to get the specifics of our very first challenge that’s coming up on August 11th!  You’re going to LOVE it!!

In celebration of my good news, I have a fun little project to share with you!  I adore shaped cards and have found that creating shaped cards with my Silhouette is a BREEZE!!  This was a fun design that I found in the Silhouette store, and I just resized it, mirrored the image at the top, offset it, and then welded it together to create a card base.  I then cut and assembled the other parts to create this cute card that would be super fun to send to one of your friends that you haven’t heard from in a while!  The sentiment is computer generated – easy peasy!

Thank you so much for letting me share my great news with you today!  I can’t wait for you to join us in creating something for the first TCS challenge on August 11th!!  Thanks for stopping by today – you all make my day when you pop in to say hi!  Have a great day!
