Jenn Barrette

I am so sad that Jenn Barrette is retiring from ScrapMatters. She is one of my favorite designers! She’s having a sale in her shop for the rest of the month.

Her latest kit is just beautiful:

Here’s what I scrapped with it last night:

I’m In Love!

As I promised yesterday, I’m back to show you the amazing project I did thanks to my new cutting machine. 🙂

When I first saw this beautiful collab by Krista Sahlin and Jenn Barrette, I knew I wanted to do something hybrid-y with it. Especially with that gorgeous ferris wheel.

So since I’m an overachiever and a bit reckless at times, my 2nd project with my new Silhouette SD was this:

Vintage Carnival kit and wordart by Sahlin Studio and Jenn Barrette

The result is just amazing! All pieces used above were cut individually. The wood paper is about 3.75×4.3 in size so I think you can appreciate the detail this machine was able to cut!
I’m looking forward to the long weekend so I can play more with my machine!

So Pretty!

I received some bad news yesterday: my grandma fell and broke her nose. 🙁 I am so upset and worried and being thousands of miles away doesn’t help. 🙁 I guess we just have to be thankful she didn’t break a leg or something else, but still…. 🙁 So to pick myself up I want to show you some pretties I made Monday night with my new Silhouette SD digital cutter. This was the first day I had it, and I’m in love!!

Since I wanted to start getting some Christmas cards done, I used this adorable kit by Mari:

(oh, and have you heard?! Everything in Mari’s store is 35% off through Sept. 5!!)

I made this mini cards/tags:

I know I am biased 🙂 but I think they are the cutest ever!!! 😉

I printed them out with no bleed, and the Silhouette cut them perfectly. Yay!! I have another more impressive project to share, but I’ll leave that for tomorrow. 🙂

Zoo Pics Anyone?

Amy and Lauren have new collection out today! Here’s the kit:

and here are the animals!

I cannot believe how cool the graphics are!
And there’s also a bundle so you can save some $$$:

I happened to have some zoo pictures from my trip to San Diego a month ago, so this was perfect timing too! I had so much fun using this kit! Here’s the first page I did:

ETA (9/2 9AM): I also made a 2-pager to fit all the pictures I took on my visit to the zoo. 🙂
