She is seriously one of the sweetest and kindest women I know and I'm so happy to be helping her celebrate her birthday today.  I'm not alone though, eleven other designers are helping her celebrate too! The next person to be a part of this celebration is Lesley Croghan...it's time to hop on over and see how she's celebrating this special day on her blog.

All Smiles | Downloadable Cut File

Hello my crafty friends and thanks so much for your visit! Today, I'm sharing a sneak peek of a new layout that I have on the Therm O Web blog. As you can see from my peek, there is a little bit of bling going on! I used their gorgeous Teal Deco Foil to transform a simple die cut title and shape that I created and cut out with my Silhouette Cameo. On the Therm O Web blog, I'm also sharing a quick tutorial (Foiled Die Cuts Tutorial) that takes you step by step through the process of using the Therm O Web iCraft Hot Melt Adhesive and Deco Foil Transfer Sheets with your Silhouette Cameo. This technique is my new favorite way to adhere foil to die cuts!

Hello Sunshine Card | Therm O Web Deco Foil

Hello Friends and Happy Wednesday! Today, I'm super excited to share with you my very first projects as a member of the Therm O Web Design Team. Below you can see a card I created using their fabulously fun Deco Foil. This was my first time to work with Deco Foil and I immediately fell in love with it! To learn how I created these gorgeous gold foiled stars I invite you to visit the Therm O Web blog and check out my iCraft Deco Foil Stars Tutorial along with a fun summer / beach themed scrapbook page that I created.

Along with the Deco Foil, I also used some of the other fantastic adhesives from Therm O Web. To create the gold/cream twine border, I simply cut a piece of their 1/2" Super Tape - just slightly longer than the white cardstock panel. I adhered the tape to the panel and wrapped the extra over the top and bottom of the panel. I then cut lengths of the twine and laid them next to each other on the tape and wrapped them over the top and bottom as well.  I repeated this process until the tape was covered. To add a bit more interest to the card front, I popped up a couple of the gold foiled stars using the Therm O Web Foam Squares.
