The new catalog has been live for 11 days.  In the past 11 days, I have tried to post every day, but have fallen short of my goal.  It is the last month of the school year and school activities have taken over!  My oldest is graduating High School and my youngest is moving up to Middle School.  With band concerts, award ceremonies, field day, etc, my computer time to post my creations have been compromised.  I am truly sorry.  I promise, I love sharing and I hope to get back on track!   The card was posted previously on Instagram and it received a lot of likes!  YAY! I am so happy you are all loving the NEW Happy Birthday Thinlits!  I didn’t think I need it, but I was mistaken!

Happy Birthday Thinlits:

On the bottom card, I used the NEW Happy Birthday Thinlits and cut it to make two pieces.  I didn’t want to cover up all the pretty Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  When I decided to use the Gold Foil Sheets, I received a tip.  If you place either a piece of card stock or index card over the thinlit, it will avoid getting “bumps” on the paper.  It truly works!  At my class this week, I demonstrated the tip and the girls LOVED it.  The Congrats is part of the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits.

Thinlit Tip with Foil Sheets:

When using any foil paper with a thinlit, if you place a shim on top of the thinlit, it will help keep the paper from getting marks on it.  Place paper to cut on bottom, thinlit, shim before putting the top cutting plate.

Zoom In:

If you look closely at the top of the “Happy,” there are a few bumps.  On one of my cards, the shim must of shifted while it ran through the Big Shot.  It’s so minor, I did not redo it instead it was a great opportunity to show you how well the shim works!  The covered part of the word is completely smooth.  The wreath was created using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.  The wreath was simple to create with the pieces located in the set.  The finishing touches included adding the brick wall embossing folder, pearls to the flowers and thick baker’s twine in Calypso Coral.

Summer is coming!

I am thrilled summer is approaching.  Warm, sunny days is the best medicine!  I will be heading to Phuket, Thailand in July!  It still doesn’t seem real I will be half way around the world!  I do plan on posting while I am away.  Some posts may be scheduled and I am hoping to share our trip.  In the meantime, I have plenty to create here before the trip and share with you!  Is there anything in particular you would like me to create?  I am always looking for suggestions!  I love feedback!
