January Lori Whitlock Blog Hop


Welcome to the January Lori Whitlock Creative Team Blog Hop.

You should have started at Lori's blog and then gone to Traci Matthews Penrod's blog before coming to my blog.  After my blog you will be going to Brandie Harding Adams' blog.  You can always start at the beginning if you missed anything along the way.

I made this adorable Heart Window Treat Wrap and filled it with some cute conversation hearts.  You can find this file here in Lori's store and here in the Silhouette store.  Be sure to visit Lori's store for all your winter and early spring gifting needs.
I just found out about Lori's Pattern Fill sets.  I used her pattern fill set called Kiss Me.  You can find it here in her store.  I downloaded it, opened it on my Silhouette and then printed it to use on my project.  She has so many options to choose from.  Be sure to check them out in her store.

Pop Up Card Valentine Sewing


 
Happy Monday Everyone:
Hope that your new year is off to a great start.  My second favorite holiday after Christmas is Valentine's Day.  I adore everything about celebrating all the wonderful people and things in life that make it wonderful for you.  Of course, there is chocolate too which is a great bonus.
I have a group of great friends that I sew with so decided to make a sewing themed Valentine for each lady.  I used Lori's SVG file called Pop Up Card Valentine Sewing and you can find it here in Lori's store and here in the Silhouette store.  I got the bundle that Lori sells as I fell in love with all of them.  You can find the bundle here.
 
Did  you know that Lori has fill papers in her store?  This was my first time using these files.  I just downloaded the file and opened and printed them from my Silhouette software.  For this card I use Be My Valentine and you can find that set here in Lori's store.  I used patterns numbered 4, 5, 6, 10, 11 and 12.  I also used Lori Whitlock Pattern Fill Textured Solids which you can find here in her store.  Be sure to check out all the different fill paper options that Lori has.

That's it for me.  Have a great week.
Hugs,

Gatefold Wreath Card Tutorial

Hello Everyone:
I hope that everyone is enjoying the most magical time of the year.  I have a tutorial for all of you today on how to put together Lori's Gatefold Wreath Card.  I love Lori's Gatefold cards and even used one of hers to make all the wedding invitations for my son and daughter-in-law.  They are so elegant and so easy to put together.  You can find this Gatefold Wreath Card file here in Lori's store and here in the Silhouette store.  I used one of Lori's new Echo Park Paper collections called My Favorite Christmas.  
Here is a photo of the cut file pieces.
Here are the card pieces folded along their score lines. You don't have to glue together the overlapping ends of the bow, but given that this is on a card, I glued them together.  Next I glued on the ribbon part of the bow and lastly glued down the center piece using a tiny bit of glue on both sides of the bow.
I slipped the band on the folded card and added some elbellishments which are a wonderful part of this collection.
Here is the last photo which is a close up of the embellishments.
That's it for me today.  Have a great day and be sure to check out Lori's gatefold card cut files.
Hugs,
Anita

Pop Up Box Card Veterans Day

Hi Everyone:
Veterans Day is a solemn day for me as I reflect on those men and women who are serving our Country.  This card is called Pop Up Box Card Military which you can find here in her store and here in the Silhouette store.  It is very easy to put together and will surely let those serving currently or previously know that we value their service.  These cards lie flat for mailing and are so wonderful when opened.  Lori has many different styles of pop up box cards to choose from.  I used some of Lori's Echo Park collections including Summer Adventure, My Favorite Fall and I'd Rather be Crafting.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
Hugs,
