Quilting Weekend Goodie Set

Happy March everyone.  I am so excited to share my project for today.  I love to sew and quilt and am going away for a long weekend with my good friends to quilt.  I made this adorable box of Lori's and used her Echo Park line called I'd Rather Be Crafting.  I also used stickers from that collection.  The handle is held on with brads from several different of her Echo Park collections.  The cut file I used for the box is called Basket with Flower and can be found here in Lori's shop and here in the Silhouette store.  I also used the bow from the Matchbox Drawer Card Bow which is here in Lori's store and here in the Silhouette store.  I cut 1/4" pieces of cardstock and wound it around a pen to achieve my curls.
I also made pie tin pincushions to give to my friends along with their spring Chex Mix.
Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your day.

Baby Mini Album

Hi Everyone:
Anita here with a fun tutorial to make this mini baby album.  My brother's girlfriend just became a grandmother of a beautiful baby boy and I made this album for her to fill and have to share with her friends.
This is a photo of the cut file.  It is called Baby Layered Mini Album and you can find it in Lori's store and in the Silhouette Store.  I mixed and matched some wonderful collections of Lori's from Echo Park to make my album including A Perfect Winter, A Perfect Autumn, A Perfect Christmas and I Love Family.  I bought 1.5 inch colored rings from Amazon for the album.
I decided that I wanted to make each page be the same print/color so I used the replicate function on my Silhouette to mirror the left tabbed page to the right so that I could glue them together to create a heavier page.  I used matching papers.
Next, I used the rectangle tool on the left side bar to create a white piece to put the photo on.  I like to put the item I am trying to match the size on my mat.
Here is the sized rectangle on my mat.
Here is a photo that shows the other rectangles that I created for the pages of my album.  I then cut two of each for the album.
I used Lori's font called Wide Marker at the 56.0 font size and moved them on to the bottle to see how it would look.
Here are the pieces for my album.
There you have it.  This worked up very quickly and it so cute.  Can't wait to send it off to it's recipient.

January Lori Whitlock Blog Hop

Happy January!  Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.  Welcome to our Lori Whitlock January blog hop.  I used one of Lori's new Echo Park lines called I'd Rather Be Crafting which I have been hoarding and waiting to use for a special project.  I used some ribbon from my stash.  I love to quilt and have four good friends that sew together.  We are getting together this coming weekend to sew and I made these post it note holders for them.  I used Lori's Sticky Note Holder 3 which you can find here in her shop and here in the Silhouette Store.  You should have come here from Kathy Skou's blog and next you will be going to Brandie Harding Adams' blog.  You can also start at the beginning of the hop on Lori's blog.

Holiday Thank You Cards

Anita here with a post holiday thank you card set.  I am always touched by the generosity of others during the holiday season and always like to take a moment to thank them for thinking of me.  Lori has some wonderful cut files to use for just this purpose.  I used one of her Echo Park new collections which is called A Perfect Winter.  I just love the patterns and colors and the embellishments are swoon worthy.  I used the following cut files to make these cards.  I am going to put the names of the files below each card as the names are very similar.
Thanks for looking and Happy New Year.
