Shape Book project in the works

I am currently working on another shape book. This one is on a trip my daughter (Brittney) and I took a couple of years ago to Europe. I designed it Tuesday evening using the Make The Cut! software and an image off of the web of the Mt Pilatus dragon.

I cut the "book" pages out last night and will start working on the layers and embellishments later today and the rest of this week. I am hoping to have it completed by the weekend so that I can share. So check back later to see my updates or either the finished project.

My wall art on my office wall

Okay I did it!!! I went to work early this morning and put this on the wall in my office. It was so easy to do using the transfer paper to transfer the image on to and then removing the back and attaching the images right to the wall, then removing the transfer paper. There it was....all done. I think it turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself. I am so excited with this project that my head is thinking of what can I do next. We will be painting this spring so holding out before I add any to my home...but it is definitely next. For now maybe some butterflies on the wall behind me in my office.

Don't forget to check back to see what other projects I will be adding. Thanks for stopping by.

Working with "Vinyl", Cricut and MTC

Well today I have been playing around with using the vinyl technique with my Cricut. For this project, however, I have used the faux leather contact paper instead of vinyl and it works great and is a lot cheaper. Found it at Home Depot.

I made this sign for my son as the first cut to see how it was going to work. I put together the layout in my Make the Cut software and used it to cut the images out with my Cricut Expression.

This next picture is going to be wall art that I am going to add to my office wall. One of the ladies, KLee from the Make the Cut forum inspired me to do this after seeing her work on her wall. It was just beautiful. So I cut these images from my Cricut "E" using my 12x24 mat with the black faux leather contact paper.

Isn't the cat just fantastic. The cat design was a file shared by KLee. I created the other images using the CDS software, Home Decor and Serenade cartridges. The stool I found a graphic online and pulled it into the MTC software to cut.
Check back later this week to see a picture of how everything is put together on the wall.

A Birthday Card

Here is another birthday card I made for another co-worker, Naaja.

Recipe: Magnolia Tilda stamp, Nestabilities Scalloped Oval and Circle, Cupcake stamp and Kids Quotes stamps. And this one I used Copic Sketch markers instead of coloring pencils.

A Thank You Card

This is a Thank You card I made for a co-worker for her help on a huge project I was working on. Thanks Linda!!

Recipe: Cuttlebug-Just My Type embossing border, Magnolia Stamp-Pink Tilda with Rose and colored pencils for coloring and shading.

My First Card

I want to share my first card that I made. I made this birthday card for a co-worker, Roxanne. Unfortunately, I was a few days late getting this to her.

Recipe: Cuttlebug-Happy Birthday embossing folder, Nestabilities-Scalloped Circle, Hanna's Stamps-Riley the Moose. I also used colored pencils to color Riley. And I added the stamped image to the envelope.

Welcome to The Hobby Lady's Blog

Welcome to my spot on the web. I hope you will take time out to share in my many hobbies.

This is a new year. I tried to start a blog last year but just never got it going. So I am going to try hard to dedicate some time to keeping this one updated. I know that I will not post everyday but I will try to post at least once a week. Hopefully.

I will share my hobbies as the mood strikes me to work or play with them. You know how that is .... what mood will I be in tomorrow. What will I want to do. Come back later to find out.
