365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#181 BIrds and Birdcages Blog Hop Today!!

Hi everyone!!! Welcome to the Birds and Birdcages Blog Hop hosted by yours truly, this hop is all about birds and birdcages..... 2 of my favorite things! A special thanks to Yolie for creating this beautiful hop button for me.... Thank you so much Yolie I love it!!!

For my bird themed project I decided to make a layout about mine and my hubby's 6 year anniversary which was last year 2010 and we went on a cruise to the Mexican Riviera.... Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas. We loved it so much, Puerto Vallarta was my favorite it reminded me so much of Hawaii because it's tropical.
For my layout I chose to go with the vintage theme and chose a patterned paper from Autumn Leaves that has a lot going on but I made it work LOL! It had words, flourishes, roses and birds. I made my own 3D flowers by layering 3 different sizes and spraying with 3 different colors of Glimmer Mist and added bling. I also added lace and more blig with my i-rock. The font and flowers are from the Stamping Solutions Cricut cart, and the bird is from Florals Embellished.

Here's a close up of my flowers and the title "Love you forever and ever" I placed the title in my Xyron machine upside down and added blue Micro Beads from Martha Stewart.

I was so happy to see that this bird had a silhouette cut on it since this cart has sooooo many layers. The less layers the better for me sometimes LOL! I also added some Stickles to the bird and bling.

Ok so I just figured out a new technique!! Here's a regular piece of bling that I glued on the lace with some extra hold adhesive, well after it was done drying it had this nice crackle effect that I've never seen when using another kind of glue. The glue smells very strong and it works on any fabric or surface and it stays put and best of all it's acid free! I purchased mine at my local JoAnn's store with a coupon, they sell it in the paint section it's called E-6000 Adhesive. I've also seen it at Big Lots and Walmart. Just had to share that with you guys!!

Blog Candy!! I am giving away  1-  Peachy Keen stamps Bird Faces and More stamp set!!!
